Peaking Lights always manage to put a smile on my face with whatever they put out. This first single from their forthcoming new album is just what I needed to perk up after returning from vacation. Sounds like they may have been listening to some SOPHIE recently. Or maybe SOPHIE’s been listening to them all along. Either way, it’s good stuff. Take a listen below or at their super rad new interactive site.

Cosmic Logic drops October 6 on Weird World.

Our Love

As the clock continues to count down to the release of Caribou's highly anticipated new album, Mr. Snaith graces us with the hypnotic title track, which draws a more overt lineage between his new material and the Arthur Russellisms of 2010's still stellar Swim. I may still prefer the new found euphoria of his first teaser, but this holds things down nicely. Hear for yourself…

Our Love is out October 7 on Merge.

Come Down Softly

My vacation begins this weekend and I can’t think of a better soundtrack than the new Lemonade album. This latest single from will help to keep you warm in summer’s impending twilight. Listen below.

Minus Tide drops September 9 on Cascine.

Living for the aptly titled “Lux” from The Dew Lasts an Hour, the forthcoming debut album from Berlin’s Ballet School. Imagine an alternate universe where Cyndi Lauper recorded for 4AD and you’ll get the idea. Who wouldn’t want to live there, by the way?

The Dew drops September 9 on Bella Union.

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…


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.
