Beesmunt Soundsystem – “New Deji”
Part of the stellar 25-track compilation “shelTer” by Istanbul’s Mustesna Records to raise national awareness and financial support for the trans community in Turkey, with all proceeds going to the Eylül Cansın Trans Guest House fund.
“New Deji” fuses global percussion with modern electronics to create a tension-filled mover for dancefloors (remember those?).
Paragon Cause – “Lost Cause”
Paragon Cause, a Canadian darkwave duo featuring a member of The Raveonettes, raise emotional intensity with their new release “Lost Cause.” Blending gritty vocals with epic synths in an ode to 80s pop music, they provide all the light and shade that you need in the perfect alt-pop track.
MYND$ET – “WINDOWS”
Joyous introspective hip-hop from MYND$ET, whose languid flow wraps and weaves around an evergreen instrumental.
LMH – “Let You Go”
Lily Harrington, otherwise known as LMH, delivers our dose of power-pop in this month’s edition of Repost Rewind. Belting out the high notes and bewitching us with delicate harmonies, “Let You Go” is a ballad of love, longing, loss and heartbreak.
Wavey house party banger from Montreal. Irresistibly funky and undeniably fun, Samaether’s version of Cheese is 110% likely to cause unintentional head-nodding.
Emily Kate Boyd – “Seams”
An amalgamation of jazz, pop, blues and country, Emily Kate Boyd’s rich and far-reaching musicianship is unique, imaginative and utterly spellbinding. “Seams” is taken from her latest release “The Gradient Album”— a work littered with references to her Tennessee and Americana upbringing as she stays sonically faithful to her country roots.
Comatopia – “Rain Song”
Interweaving guitars, sparkling melodies and rousing buildups are at the fore in Comatopia’s “Rain Song.” This modern take on the classic 90s midwest instrumental sound earmarks Comatopia’s Benjamin Erdreich as one to watch in the thriving LA post-rock scene.
Itaya – “There Is Nothing There”
Sparse, haunting melodies play out over chamber orchestra-influenced instrumentation and scattered electronic builds in this genre-bending release from Itaya. One for your headphones, a bus journey home and a rainy night full of contemplation.
Breezy South African neo-soul from Randy McLlolan & Dunn Phantom. Dripping in Randy’s syrupy vocals, this Durban duo serve up a casual stroller of a tune which is loaded with lowkey swagger.
Nami – “Theatre Girl”
Ultra clean techy-liquid dnb, beamed in from Saint Petersburg’s Nami. Striking that delicate balance which the best dnb excels in – floaty, distant atmospherics coupled with expertly engineered drumwork and bassbin-warming impact.
