Hello to you on this happy Tuesday. Are you ready for new music? Of course you are!
The first track is from Los Angeleno group Mondo Cozmo and it just sails! With fun samples and anthemic vocals, there’s no doubt these guys are going places. This is the only track we have from them so far, but hopefully we get some more very soon! We move to a very “clubby” track from Slaptop that really gets the mood right. Certainly he’ll be getting the mood right poolside at Splash House in Palm Springs this June, for tickets, see here.
Switching gears a bit, we have a brand new track from Trails and Ways who won me over several years ago with a track called “Nunca” when seeing them live. This song, entiteled “My Things” is very nice as well, and I’m stoked for new material from these guys. Talking about a band who won me over with a track, WE HAVE NEW CHVRCHES, I repeat…WE HAVE NEW CHVRCHES!!! It keeps with the vibe of their last album, though this one will be featured on the soundtrack for an upcoming video game called “Mirror’s Edge Catalyst.”
We’re going to make a jump over to this track from KAYTRANADA & Shay Lia that really blew me away. This album came out a couple weeks ago and with some time to digest it, I found the track that needed to be on LRDC. It’s a bit tribal, a bit quiet, a bit electronic, a bit ethereal, and “99.9%” tightness!
Killing it with a cute single cover, this song by BOYBOY called “Vices” reminds me so much of Phoenix and is thus worthy of being featured. They only have 3 tracks, though all of them are fire. AAAAND to close out this week’s list, what better title for a track could I find than “Final Song” by breakout Danish artist MØ. She first came on my radar when touring with CHVRCHES for their first tour in America. She absolutely blew me away with a stellar show and it was nothing short of perfect. This song is also set for instant radio time (it already has 1.5+ million plays in 4 days on Spotify). So, brace yourself, it’s going to be coming to a dance party near you, and I have no problem with that.
