Les Sins – Bother

By Will Oliver, August 27th 2014

Les Sins
If you need a refresher, or have no idea, Les Sins is the side project of Toro Y Moi’s Chaz Bundick. It’s more of a dance-minded persuit than Toro. He released a few singles in the past, and now he’s announced his debut album as Les Sins. It’s titled Michael, and it will be released on November 4 via Company Records.

Check out the blippy and chill first single “Brother,” which is posted below.

Rubblebucket at Mercury Lounge (August 26, 2014)

By Will Oliver, August 27th 2014


It’s been a long road to the release of Rubblebucket’s new album Survival Sounds. The title has meaning for vocalist Annakalmia Traver, who defeated ovarian cancer last year. The album clearly has significant meaning for Traver and her bandmates, but they still maintain the genre-mashing sound that has built them a very loyal following over the past few years. Last night the group played a very sold out Mercury Lounge in celebration of the album, and what a party it was.

Prom Body – Vibrant

By Will Oliver, August 26th 2014

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 – Don’t Tell

By Will Oliver, August 26th 2014

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

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

By Will Oliver, August 25th 2014

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

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

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

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.

We Were Promised Jetpacks – Safety In Numbers

By Will Oliver, August 25th 2014

We Were Promised Jetpacks

Scottish group We Were Promised Jetpacks will return with new album Unraveling on October 14 via FatCat Records.

“Safety In Numbers” is the record’s first single, and it also opens the album. Tensions are built upon its opening synth melody, and then the comforting vocals of Adam Thompson kick in and the rest of the song takes off in full formation, soaring to some pretty major heights.

If this is how the album opens, you gotta imagine the rest of it being pretty damn good, no? Guess we will find out soon enough.

Stream “Safety In Numbers” below.
