THRILLERS new Electro Pop single “HEAT”

“Heat” is the sleek lead single off THRILLERS forthcoming album “Break Free” (Lights & Music Collective, April 28).

“We entered the studio with Back Talk not knowing what to expect, except something great. Once the writing began, we became inspired to write our modern take on a classic disco-rock song. The lyrical content was designed to pay homage to the classic disco songs of the past. The song is about the “heat” and passion you feel when you lock in with someone on the dance floor. The feeling may only last for one song, but it’s something you will never forget.” – THRILLERS

According to Buckingham, “We were exploring a creative process, and the identity of the project took on a life organically. The body of work felt like it was meant to be a duet album. We acknowledged that to each other on many occasions, and said to ourselves, ‘what took us so long?!!’”

Saint Etienne Premiere “Magpie Eyes” on Stereogum

Saint Etienne have announced details of Magpie Eyes, the first single to be taken from their forthcoming album, Home Counties, released on Heavenly Recordings on Friday 2nd June.

Talking about the track, Pete Wiggs of Saint Etienne said:

The title was inspired by a book about Creation records ‘my Magpie Eyes are hungry for the prize’ which in turn was taken from ‘Up The Hill Down The Slope’ by The Loft. I often find myself being so deep in thought that I’m not really listening to what my children are saying to me and I extrapolated guilty feelings over that into the story of someone who for a combination of personal ambition and commuter journey time ends up missing out on his kids growing up and not really knowing them or the ‘Herberts’ they might be hanging out with.”

New Music Video From Jermaine Hardsoul ft. Tracey Lee

If you translate the Jermaine Hardsoul sound into a musical equation it would be: traditional soulful melodies + instrumentation + muscular hip-hop beats + writing = sonic activism. Many artists, including Musiq (SoulChild), Carl Thomas, Eric Roberson and Jagged Edge, have worked with Hardsoul to create original compositions that push the boundaries of traditional R&B and progressive urban music.

Shiny Wet Machine “Euphoria”

Euphoria” is a track about the insuppressible pull towards hedonism and how the desire to pursue this visceral, carnal urge is, in reality, unquenchable and increasingly consuming. In short, the further down the rabbit hole you get, the more you need to push forward; always harder, always deeper, always faster. Sonically the track captures that feeling perfectly. As Pop Matters points out in the premiere, the track’s “short, fierce bursts of energy” are “undeniably appealing”.

Two Islands – ‘Heaven’

Amongst featuring on blogs in America, gaining support from playlists internationally, and having radio play in Peru, Two Islands’ debut track is now sitting in Amazing Radio’s top 40.

El Michels Affair’s RETURN TO THE 37th CHAMBER streaming in full

Return To The 37th Chamber from El Michels Affair is out this Friday, April 14 on Big Crown Records and the album is the highly anticipated follow up to 2009’s underground cult classic Enter the 37th Chamber. Producer and multi-instrumentalist Leon Michels (The Arcs, Menahan Street Band, Lee Fields, The Shacks) recorded the album completely analog, sometimes hitting six generations of tape before it was ready for mixing, giving the Return to The 37th Chamber it’s own hazy sound. Adding to the unique fidelity, the record is laced with psychedelic flourishes, “John Carpenter” synths, heavy metal guitars, triumphant horns, and traditional Chinese instruments that make up for the lack of the Wu’s superlative vocals.

PREMIERE: El Michels Affair ‘Return To The 37th Chamber’

Watch Rubblebucket’s sci-fi “If U C My Enemies”

HotKid single ‘Caught In The Light’

The band’s thoughts on the song:

“Caught In The Light” is about that feeling of escape you get from watching your favourite old movie, or when your upfront at a concert. It’s about that longing to be taken outside of yourself, out of the everyday. It also recognizes how we all exist in-between those moments of escape.

Peaking Lights announce new LP ‘The Fifth State Of Consciousness’

Peaking Lights’ fifth studio album, “The Fifth State Of Consciousness”, is a 12-track, double LP produced in the band’s Dreamfuzz studio over the course of the last two years.

Following 2014’s Cosmic Logic LP on Weird World, it marks both a departure from the new and a return to the old, with a whole new twist on the psychedelic dub-pop they’ve become revered for, a listening experience of otherworldly sounds. Through all its peaks and valleys, the larger arc of themes within “The Fifth State Of Consciousness” surround dreams, strength, a loss of innocence, and seeking an enlightened state of being after overcoming life’s trials and tribulations.


Fueled By Ramen group Basement have premiered their official music video for “Promise Everything.” The video debuted today via CLRVYNT, who also sat down with the band for an in-depth interview to discuss old tunes, their new label and working on new music.


Toronto-based singer and songwriter Jessie Reyez has announced her debut EP, Kiddo, will arrive to much anticipation on April 21. Reyez first broke out in late summer 2016 with “Figures”, a gorgeous stripped-back hymn featuring Reyez floating melodically above an acoustic guitar, and an emotional video that premiered on The FADER. The track quickly exploded online and thrust Reyez into the spotlight as a much buzzed about artist to watch. In early 2017, she released her second track “Shutter Island”, with a fear-inducing video that premiered on Pigeons & Planes. Combined, both singles have surpassed 15M streams worldwide, both as independent releases. They’ve also earned Reyez fans like Zane Lowe and Elton John, both of whom have supported Reyez on Beats 1 Radio. Reyez’s forthcoming EP, Kiddo promises to delve deeper into her personal experiences while remaining unrestrained by conventional boundaries of a single genre or sound.

Denai Moore – “Trickle” Official Video

You might remember Jamaica-born, Stratford-raised Denai Moore from that time she lent her beautiful harmonies to SBTRKT’s “The Light” back in 2014.

Drew McDowall (ex-Coil, Psychic TV) announces ‘Unnatural Channel’ LP for Dais

After the long overdue release of Drew McDowall’s debut solo album Collapse in 2015, the experimental music underground saw McDowall as an arrival of an artist that was always here, hiding in plain sight. He was quietly in the background, pulling the levers on some of the most influential recordings in electronic music and with shifting his focus from the role as band member of such legendary acts as Coil & Psychic TV along with his recent collaborative efforts alongside Tres Warren (of Psychic Ills) in Compound Eye, McDowall came to finally identity as a singular artist and figurehead to a movement that has vitally required his presence.

Sixo shares nostalgic, Terminator-inspired “John Connor” video

For years Scotty Trimble, the former professional motocross racer and indie rap producer better known as Sixo, has questioned the validity of free will and believed that every outcome has a likelihood of occurring or not occurring. Can our actions truly be considered under our control when existing within a limited amount of variables? Are perceptions of free will merely illusion? With those lingering concepts and a head full of ’60s and ’70s psychedelic rock, Sixo entered his home studio and began crafting ‘The Odds of Free Will’, his third full-length record.

Sarantos “First 5 Seconds” Video

“For this music video I thought the story should center on love as seen through the eager eyes of a child, the hopeful eyes of a teenager and the mature eyes of an older adult. But think about it. Does love really change as we age or is that just an urban myth? Isn’t love always love? After all, love knows no real boundary. Doesn’t it just depend on our personality as opposed to being a preset based on age?

To be human is to have felt love in some way and at some point in life. Love can take many forms. Love doesn’t care about age, gender or race. Depending on age though, love might be fueled by raging hormones or offer peaceful introspection and acceptance. Maybe it does but maybe it doesn’t! Love is different for everyone but ultimately it’s still love.” Sarantos
