Song Pick of the Day: Escapists – Pyramid Scheme

It’s almost impossible to not fall for the allure of Pyramid Scheme, the newest single of the London quartet Escapists. While pitching the song’s chorus “I don’t know, I don’t know” higher and higher, Simon Glancy brings the main message of Pyramid Scheme home and delivers one killer hook, in the[…]

Released Today: Adryelle – Deep Blue Water (feat. StarBoy)

Baltimore producer Adryelle finally released a new song Deep Blue Water, which moves her from dream-pop a bit more into the R&B direction. Aside from her soulful vocals, it features a great acoustic bass line and some rap. It makes me curious what she’s up to next. Listen to it[…]

Song Pick of the Day: Abra – Sick Girl

Abra toured with Empress Of, but unfortunately we missed her show back in September. Our Song Pick of the Day Sick Girl is indeed sick and weird and simply delicious.

Song Pick of the Day: Tsar B – Escalate

Belgian singer and producer Tsar B goes straight for the place where FKA twigs is very successful and which some call “Experimental R&B”. I’d rather call it enormously cool music, which fuses multiple genres into something very unconventional. Our Song Pick of the Day, the sensual track Escalate brings in[…]

There’s nothing cold about December Love rather the opposite! This song by young LA artist Lucy Sunday is one hot number and the only possible chills are caused by Lucy Sunday’s beautifully strong yet smooth vocals, and the track’s modern R&B touch. Listen to December Love our Song Pick of the Day:

Song Pick of the Day: Louisahhh!!! – Change

Lately I’m pretty much obsessed with Louisahhh!!!, whose EP Shadow Work is a brilliant piece of minimalist electronic music. All six tracks are so good, but here’s the most instantly palatable Change, our Song Pick of the Day. Happy Thanksgiving for those in the U.S.! There are many things to[…]

Song Pick of the Day: Island Science – Satellite

Island Science are from Orlando and they do dreampop, somewhat reminiscent of of Warpaint, maybe a little bit more on the electronic side. That’s all I know, but I like it a lot. Our Song Pick of the Day!

NEW ALBUM: Foals – What Went Down

With its uncompromising urgency, high tempo moving forward, pronounced bass lines and underlying menace cumulating in great suspense, What Went Down is easily among the best rock-pop songs of the year! Yet when first listening to What Went Down  the fourth studio album of The Foals, one is inclined to[…]
