When I told people I was going all three nights of Arcade Fire’s weekend takeover of Barclays Center, a lot of people were confused as to why. The main concern was why would you see the same show three times in a row? It’s a perfectly fair question, but that’s only if you assume that the setlist would stay the same. Even if it did, the performance was so good that I wouldn’t have minded all that much.

Aphex Twin Announces New Album ‘Syro’

By Will Oliver, August 26th 2014 Album News News

Aphex Twin

A few weekends ago green blimps were seen flying over London with both 2014 and the Aphex Twin logo on it. Then people started spotting the logo on the streets of New York City. Speculation turned towards the release of a new album, and that is indeed the case. I

t’s a new album titled Syro, and it’s his first in 13 years (since 2001′s Drukqs). He made the announcement on the site Tor, which revealed the tracklist and the image posted above.

He recently spoke to The Fader, and they provided the following bits of information ahead of the full interview which is coming soon:

Prom Body – Vibrant

By Will Oliver, August 26th 2014 Listen New Stream

Prom Body
Prom Body provide ample amounts of guitar riffage, the sort that’s made for a small venue that can hardly be contained by all the heavy movement that comes with it.

This is true of the Wavves-esque “Prom Body,” which is a track off the bands recently released record Naughty By Natural. It oozes West Coast vibes, which makes sense considering they call Tucson, Arizona home.

Stream “Vibrant” below.

Mansions On The Moon

Mansions On The Moon are a L.A. quartet who will release their self-titled debut album on October 22. The album is available for pre-order on their PledgeMusic page.

First single “Don’t Tell” is a tragically cool song that channels feel good-dance artists such as Empire Of The Sun in a big way. The songs strives to capture all the right parts of synth-based dance works, and does so in a winning fashion that is a simple delight.

Stream “Don’t Tell” below.

Lydia Ainsworth – PSI

By Will Oliver, August 26th 2014 Listen New Stream

Lydia Ainsworth

Over the last three years Lydia Ainsworth was secretly writing and recording songs in Toronto/Brooklyn basements and bedrooms. Thankfully for us, she decided to share her music with the world, and based on what songs we have heard so far, they’re too good to be kept for herself.

On September 30 she will release her debut album Right From Real via Arbutus Records. Based on her stunning track “PSI”, I can tell its going to be a can’t miss record this fall.

She creates a dreary, yet hopeful, atmosphere on the track, which floats away with a perfectly dreamy and very pop-minded chorus that will leave you breathless. The song is too good to be on a debut album. Then again, she’s had a good three years to work on her craft, and what a job that she has done.

Below you can stream “PSI”, along with the equally stunning first single “Malachite.”

Perfume Genius – Queen

Perfume Genius - Too Bright

On September 22 Perfume Genius will release his new album Too Bright via Matador Records.

“Queen” is the first song shared from the album and its a heavy listen. It’s a track that hits the senses hard – from the synth-line to the drums – its hard striking song, yet also lush and romantic. There’s also some impressive production which gives it that much more of an edge.

Stream “Queen” below.

Roses – It’s Over

By Will Oliver, August 25th 2014 Listen Stream

Roses LA

Roses is the new L.A.-based trio of former Abe Vigoda member Juan Velasquez. They released their debut EP Dreamlover earlier this month via Group Tightener.

“It’s Over” is a track taken off the EP, and it’s a keeper. It screams 80s new wave, playing with dance grooves that are fronted by a very Morrissey/Edwyn Collins voice. It has a smart, playful groove to it that is impossible to resist.

Listen below.

Lemonade - Orchid Bloom

Electronic trio Lemonade have made the move from San Francisco to Brooklyn, but based on new single “Orchid Bloom,” they still maintain the west coast electronic sound that they’re known for.

The track is off their new album Minus Tide, out September 9 via Cascine. Stream it below.

Cut Copy – Lights Shine On

By Will Oliver, August 25th 2014 Listen Stream

Cut Copy

Last year Cut Copy released the rather under-appreciated Free Your Mind. As a big supporter of the band, the record (along with all of their material) is still getting plenty of play from me.

The band released a deluxe version of it earlier in the year, and it includes 5 new songs not released on the album, including “Lights Shine On.”

It actually sounds more like something that could have been attributed to the In Ghost Colours era, meaning its bloody fantastic. Cut Copy never let me down.

Stream “Lights Shine On” below.
