Alesso ft. Matthew Koma- Years

A little throwback Thursday for you gents, Alesso exploded a few years back partly behind the momentum provided by this mega hit. Fantastic once the drops hits. If you don’t know, now you know.

Kings of Leon- Wait For Me

Kings-of-Leon-Mechanical-Bull-2013-1200x1200

The Followill’s are back with their second single off their upcoming album Mechanical Bull. “Wait For Me” has been on repeat lately here at the DYG headquarters and you gents would do well to follow suit, this is a great song and a promise of more to come when Kings finally drop their album in a few weeks.

Post War Years- All Eyes

CraneTV-PostWarYearsStrippedBackSession109

We here at the Dapper Young Gentleman are borderline omnipresent on music blogs but sometimes we find music the old fashioned way, watching an old episode of Top Gear. In the first episode of Season 19 Richard Hammond is speeding around in a Pagani Huayra while the Post War Years’ “All Eyes” is playing in the background. The Post War Years are a London based alternative group who have really been picking up steam lately, driven primarily by this single from their last album. Check it out and tell us what you think in the comments.

Joey Bada$$- Waves

Another old-school jam for you fellas today.  Joey Bada$$ goes hard on this track with a laid back flow over a smooth jazz bass line.  Though he might not be well known right now, his recent collaborations with artists such as Mac Miller, Kendrick Lamar, and ASAP Rocky are sure to put him in the limelight very soon.

Porter Robinson- Language

Better late than never on this one gents! This is Porter Robinson’s anthem that tore up the summer festivals and we decided it would be simply criminal not to post it. Without further ado…..

 

The Neighbourhood

the-neighbourhood- 2Here is a double feature for all you alternative rock fans out there.  California based band The Neighbourhood has steadily been on the rise in the past year with their hit Sweater Weather.  Catchy lyrics and almost ominous guitar riffs highlight this bands distinctive sound.  One thing is for certain, The Neighbourhood will be a band to watch out for in the coming years.

Sweater Weather

Lana Del Rey- Summertime Sadness (Cedric Gervais Remix)

Cedric Gervais has been on fire all summer and it’s about time we here at the Dapper Young Gentleman give him the recognition he’s longed for since we started this site. Gervais took two of Lana Del Rey’s hits and made them instant classics. The first here is Summertime Sadness, the dark brooding vocals typical of Lana Del Rey’s work are a perfect complement for Gervais’ more upbeat style.

 

Here’s similar fare:

 

With “Things Can Only Get Better” Gervais adds his personal touch to Howard Jones’ 80′s mega hit. This one is a feel good jam.

The Black Keys- Meet Me In The City

Here’s an oldie but goodie for all of you blues-rock fans out there.  The Black Keys have been killing it in recent years with their own style of roots blues music.  No song proves their talent more than this cover of Junior Kimbrough’s  ”Meet Me In The City”.  This band has already made it to the big time, but songs like this are the reason they’ll stay.  Enjoy

Betty Who- High Society (The Soundmen Remix)

We have a little upbeat indie remix for you gents today, this one’s a few months 0ld but still absolutely worth the download. Betty Who may not have broken into the whole commercial iTunes scene yet but look out, I can guarentee you’ll be hearing more from them soon.
