LRDC This Week New Music Playlist – 7/26/16

Tuesday, July 26th, 2016

Kicking off this week, we have a brand new track from Chairlift who just released a new album less than 8 months ago. They certainly aren’t wasting any time and the song is totally solid. It’s a bit slower than the past singles we have heard from them and has a bit of a fantasy vibe to it. Following this up is new music from Dent May. Everyone’s favorite Mississippian is back and as fun as ever! This song, “Face Down in the Gutter of Your Love” dances around in the squalor that is “love” and it’s quite cheeky.

Going ahead, we have the first track to be released from Kishi Bashi’s undoubtedly amazing new album. If you’re not familiar with this multi-instrumentalist, it’s about time you do some catching up (see “It All Began With a Burst” & “Philosophize In It! Chemicalize With It”). Once you do so, you will realize this guy is something special and so different from any other artist out there.

I’ve added a track that gets a bit deeper into Sofi Tukker’s repertoire and it is so dang fun (just like all of their songs). You may have heard “Drinkee” all over the freaking place, and dug it, well this one is just as catchy and it’s even in English, for all of us non-Portuguese speakers!

Towards the end, we have a track that is not new, it’s just straight out of the 80’s! It’s called A.H.B. and is from a band out of Austin, TX called S U R V I V E. It’s pure synth goodness and is super catchy. And last up, we have the debut track from a duo called The Linedots. They’re super new (a solid group of 46 people like them on Facebook at the time of this post) but not from the sounds of this track. It’s got some killer riffs that remind me a bit of Ratatat in all of the best ways and the fuzzy vocals from Evangeline Ling has a solid Lily Allen vibe.

Enjoy!

LRDC This Week New Music Playlist 6/28/16

Tuesday, June 28th, 2016

Let’s get this kicked off with some new Calvin Harris and while I’ll be first to jump on the sell out train of EDM, this track includes Dizzee Rascal and it’s undeniable that this grime artist is something very unique. He transforms this track from another “whatever bro” club banger to something that is worthy to bump in even the most eclectic of speakers. The next song is an interesting mashup of genres, featuring Paul Banks of Interpol and RZA from Wu Tang Clan, they are called Banks and Steelz and it bangs. The contrast is so striking that it just works, not sure why…

Keeping with the rap and r&b, we have a song a bit later from an artist named Khalid (not to be confused with “another one”). This song starts out rough, but smooths out in a very nice way. His voice almost sounds like Bastille to me for some reason. It is just a solid track. Next up is jiving track from Ontario producer Andrew Hunt under the cryptic name FTRSL with some help of two other bands/artists named OwlsBears. Sure it’s kind of pop-y, but that’s definitely a plus, it’s smooth and so much fun.

Wrapping up the list we have a song from Los Angeles songstress White Sea. Her song “Ellipses” swells with so much intensity and it is absolutely beautiful! I liken her to a soprano version of Zola Jesus and I’m very much down. And now finishing off on a high note is a effervescent track from an artist named Xan Young. His music is a bit less enigmatic than all the cool images on Facebook, and I am a fan of that. It’s playful and great to have on in the background or just jam out to!

I hope you all have a great week,

Greg
