SONG PICK: Teulu – Albeit

Reading about Teulu‘s inspiration for “Albeit,” I knew I wanted to feature the song before I even listened to it. Granted, I knew it would be electronic music, a genre that I love, yet I was not prepared for how much “Albeit” moved me. Ben Capogrossi, aka Teulu, created pure[…]


SONG PICK: Varley – Misery (Video)

The new song by Irish-German trio Varley is called “Misery,” but it is meant as an antidote to self-afflicted negativity. “Don’t blame me now for building all your misery,” Claire-Ann sings in this catchy upbeat pop tune. But the “me” and “you” are interchangeable, as the band explains: “Have you[…]


We had Brighton-based shoegazers HANYA on our radar early last year already when they released the gorgeous “I’ll Do It Tomorrow.” Since then, a few more brilliant singles followed, but their newest one, “Fortunes,” might be their most compelling to date! “Fortunes” feels effortlessly blissful and beautiful.

Mumble Tide

SONG PICK: Mumble Tide – Good 4 Me

“Good 4 Me” marks one of those moments of clarity about the lack of clarity in one’s life. Where does this all lead, what is good for me, and what not? Bristol duo Mumble Tide wraps this all in a piece of guitar-heavy bedroom pop with the message that all[…]

Sister Lucy

SONG PICK: Sister Lucy – Dream

Denver producer and vocalist Chillhum delights with “highspeed,” a beautifully woozy and effortlessly pleasing electropop gem.

Emilee Moore

SONG PICK: Emilee Moore – White Mazda Truck

The title “White Mazda Truck” does not prepare you for the deeply emotional ride L.A. singer/songwriter Emilee Moore is about to take you. But it is not unusual that the brain attaches unremarkable details to important memories. In Emilee’s case, it was the car’s make that stuck in her mind[…]

“Channel” is the newest single from Fair Visions‘ upcoming EP Modern Kids. The New York-based post-punk band goes a little darker and maybe even more mysterious on “Channel.” Fair Visions’ sound is inspired by the greatest of the electronic/industrial genre, think New Order or Depeche Mode but they certainly put[…]
