Adiós Ghost – “It Was Never”

adios

Adiós Ghost definitely draws from a diverse palate when creating their music. Their dark and moody delivery has flavors of psychedelics, West African music, early house, through an indie rock lens. For that reason, we’re treated to songs like “It Was Never,” a left-field, borderline ghostly indie rock number reminiscent of other indiepsych bands like Tame…

Vallmon and Courtoisie – “Season ft. Signe Krog”

vallmon

“Season” is nu-disco at its finest. French producers Vallmon and Coutoisie with their partnership with singer Signe Krog caught our ears with her unique take on the genre, featuring her distinct, Adele-like vocal delivery over a thumping rhythm, swelling synths, and a retro take on electronic instrumentals. We think the refrain, “the reason why I’m still not attracted to…

Ocean Floor – “Super”

ocean

Melbourne act Ocean Floor released a disorienting version of bedroom-pop with “Super.” Inspired by a time when he literally had super glue stuck to his eye (which warped and distorted the way he saw the world), “Super” sounds much the same way. Think shoegaze Title Fight-style with a lo-fi, less agressive approach. “Super” is available…

Tess – “Love Gun”

Tess is a newcomer to the industry, recently discovered making waves via her home on La Réunion island. “Love Gun” caught our ears for being a catchy, pure pop jam, reminding us strongly of songstresses Rihanna or Ariana Grande. “Love Gun” showcases Tess’ unique vocal delivery and lyrics where she suggests she might need a ‘love gun’…

Cafe Disko Covers “One Dance” & “Can’t Stop the Feeling”

Screen Shot 2016-06-24 at 10.27.46 AM

Pop music is fun to play with. Concrete melodies and digestable lyrics make for a good canvas to draw on, and that’s exactly what Cafe Disko has done with a pair of the biggest pop tracks of the year. Drake’s “One Dance” is the most successful of the wave of tropical house-influenced music we’ve gotten…

The Doom Tomb – “Un-Miserable”

doom

A ragtag group of LA misfits make up The Doom Tomb, led by songwriter Mike Simmons. Their tune “Un-Miserable” takes the greatest aspects of late 80s jangle and college rock and gives it a sunny, California disposition. This particular track is reminiscent of The Replacements or REM, showcasing distinct slacker vocals over chorus-laden, shimmery guitars….

MNNQNS – “Capital Talk”

12377938_812218118906302_7018844922021978528_o

Vowelless, French indie rockers MNNQNS wowed us with their video for new single “Capital Talk.” Throughout the video, the poor singer is subject to a bunch of torture, including, but not limited to, drowning, kidnapping, and… urine in the face? We’re not sure which is worse, but the song itself is fast-paced punch in the…

Mother Evergreen – “A Newer North”

north

Mother Evergreen is the moniker for Chicago solo artist Evan Loritsch. We recently stumbled upon “A Newer North,” an understated tune full of wintry electronics and hushed vocals. The ambient folk of Mother Evergreen brings to mind fellow indietronica artists The Album Leaf, The Postal Service, and Electric President. “A Newer North” is about constant impermanence, and…

My Gravity Girls – “Jeremiah”

my-gravity-girls-irrelevant-pieces-vol-2

Italian act My Gravity Girls caught our ears with the airy “Jeremiah.” Featuring distinct baritone vocals layered over cloud-like synth pop, we think My Gravity Girls would sit comfortably on a shelf next to Bon Iver, Volcano Choir, or Grizzly Bear. Despite the song’s feather-light feel, we heard a rumor that the song is not-so-secretly about a…
