Body Language makes upbeat electropop, AlunaGeorge-style. There are another band from Brooklyn I have missed so far: fortunately Audiofemme has an interview with singer Angelica Bess to catch up and learn more.
I have yet to hear a Cascine release I don’t like. Tokyo artist Cuushe’s latest song Tie is no exception: it immediately evokes pleasant images in my mind, maybe a cab ride trough a city o Friday night. There’s an EP on the way for release on April 5th.
