Dean & Me

jj's new album V is just around the corner and it’s shaping up to be one of the more satisfying things they’ve ever done, particularly in the way they continue to reference their high watermark to date, n° 2. This new  flips the title of that album’s great closing track and swaps out the “Tell It to My Heart” callback for “It’s My Party.” Good stuff. Take a listen below and look for the rest August 19 when it drops on Secretly Canadian.

Video Girl

Another syrupy slip of a song from FKA twigs' highly anticipated LP1 made its way onto the interwebs this weekend. Two weeks till release suddenly feels even longer…

Playing With Fire

Here’s another Numbers jam to lift you out of your Monday funk courtesy of Redinho, whose self-titled debut drops September 23. This is the first single and Holy Ginuwine, is it good…

Lemonade

SOPHIE continues to make us all feel better with this new jam from his forthcoming 12”, out August 4 on Numbers.

Heavy Metal and Reflective

Not that she ever went away, but I think it’s safe to say that Azealia Banks is back.

Jessie Ware x xx

Jessie Ware teamed with Romy from the xx to write this haunting, heartbreaking new gem from her the former’s forthcoming sophomore album. Listen below and grab some tissues.

Heady Filthy

From The Golden Filters Unselected Works, the third volume of which is available now through The Vinyl Factory.

Good Thing Bad Thing

Mozart’s Sister's debut album Being is shaping up to be one of my most replayed records of the summer. Its insidiously kinetic electronics and swooping, acrobatic R&B vocals are all kinds of addictive. It all starts with this song, the album’s opener. Listen below. Then listen again. And again and again. The rest is out August 5 via Asthmatic Kitty.

I wasn’t lucky enough to be around when White Hinterland came to Philly this spring in support of her excellent new album Baby. After watching this dramatic solo rendering of the stunning title track, I’m kicking myself even more. Proof positive that her songs (and voice) can sell themselves regardless of the accompaniment around them.

Baby is out now on Dead Oceans.
