The Daily Playlist for February 19, 2018

  • Alfred Hall – “Pearl Diver” // Oriol Angrill Jordà
    3:13, via The Burning Ear
  • Visual art above by Oriol Angrill Jordà [via] It’s a beautiful day, so it’s time to hit the lake with the boys. Your dad isn’t using his boat today, so load it up with some light beer and snacks and set sail for party town. The sun kisses your face, and the world has seemed […]
  • La Poré – “Missing It” // Seoro Oh
    3:13, via The Burning Ear
  • Visual art above by Seoro Oh [via] Like a moody, modern discotheque, “Missing It” dances into your ears and busts a move. Flashing lights, stylish clothes, moves that cannot be denied — this song plays images in my head of the ultimate underground dance party. Let loose and dance like no one is watching. Or […]
  • Hanging Valleys – “Fortaleza” // Rebecca Yanovskaya
    3:13, via The Burning Ear
  • Visual art above by Rebecca Yanovskaya [via] Transcendent guitar work splatters like paint all over the dreamy, beautiful “Fortaleza.” Like a choir of angels welcoming you to your heavenly destination, there’s a sense of wonder, detachment, and bliss that conjures inside the listener. A contemplative look into the human mind, Hanging Valleys produced a top […]

  • Skinny Pelembe – Spit / Swallow (Official Video)

    Having recently signed to Brownswood Recordings, announced via new track ‘I’ll Be On Your Mind’, Skinny Pelembe lines up his first single proper for the London imprint. ‘Spit / Swallow’ spans pastoral pop, psychedelic textures and hip-hop-tipped, chopped and spliced guitar, interlacings samples with rolling drum breaks and echoed falsettos. B-side ‘Toy Shooter’ follows in similar fashion, bridging psych-rock exaltation with beat-head, synth-jamming production.

The Daily Playlist for February 16, 2018

  • Maxime Dangles ‘Cloudy Rivers’ (Antigone Instinctive Remix)
  • On February 27, Maxime Dangles will release his Brumes EP via Skryptöm. The four track EP will be Dangles first EP of the year and marks his return to Skryptöm, following on from 2015’s Resilience album. The tracks on the EP are deep, powerful and melodic, cuts built to move bodies on the dancefloor. Alongside […]
  • WNTALN – Way Out
  • Have you ever heard a record that absolutely defies classification? I’m pretty damn good at filing songs into sub-genres with almost a decade of reviewing music under my belt, but WNTALN has gone and made me feel utterly clueless. Their new single “WAY OUT” has a trap influenced beat with a thunderous low-end, ska horns […]
  • Cape Lion – Week One
  • There’s no correct timeframe for making music. Some of the best songs are recorded in mere minutes (see: Young Thug’s “Danny Glover” which took 8 minutes to be exact) while other efforts are in development for years (see: Chromatics’ recorded, then totally scrapped, then re-recorded Dear Tommy that I’m still anxiously awaiting). There’s something particularly […]
  • Monsieur Minimal – “Agalia” // Lukrecia
    3:13, via The Burning Ear
  • Visual art above by Lukrecia [via] Greek artist Monsieur Minimal released “Agalia”, a tropical downtempo track that is equal parts sugar and spice, being just as relaxing and chill as it is danceable. Lose yourself in the heavy vibes that are laid out neatly in front of you, the French vocals swirling around the beat […]
  • Cloud – “Wildfire” // WAONE Interesni Kazki
    3:13, via The Burning Ear
  • Visual art above by WAONE Interesni Kazki [via] Following up the awesome, shimmery “Zen Summer” from 2015, Cloud has returned to inject you with a heavy dose of in your face psychedelic pop with “Wildfire”, the first single off his upcoming up album “Plays With Fire.” Immediately assaulting your ears with sound, the listener is […]
  • GEO – “Mágica (feat. Caro Pierotto)” // Artem Rogowoi
    3:13, via The Burning Ear
  • Visual art above by Artem Rogowoi [via] “Mágica” lives up to its own as TBE fave GEO delivers a magical dose of Brazilian inspired chill beats directly to your eardrums. With strong roots in Bossa Nova, the track practically sells itself as the lounge-y vibe forms a bed for you to lie on. Lie down […]
  • IMUNURI – “Preconceived Notion” // F. Choo
    3:13, via The Burning Ear
  • Visual art above by F. Choo [via] Sassy, uptempo, and funky, “Preconceived Notion” oozes with soul, energy, and purpose. A dash of Janelle Monae’s dancier tracks and classic funk/R&B hybrid tracks, IMUNURI does their predecessors well while safely carving their own path. I dare you to not tap your foot and bob your head to […]
  • Super Duper – “Galileo” // Sebastian Cestaro
    3:13, via The Burning Ear
  • Visual art above by Sebastian Cestaro [via] “Galileo” opens with a gaggle of aliens massaging your eardrums with extraterrestrial sounds, and quickly evolves into a punchy, yet chilled out beat, wrapped in warpy synths and echoed sounds, cocooning you in sheer bliss. The truth is out there? The truth is right here. Super Duper is […]

The Daily Playlist for February 15, 2018

  • Distant Echoes ‘Flight Mode’
  • Italian techno producer Distant Echoes will present his first EP of the new year, Rough Waves, a four-track pack out on the Berlin-based, Southern-Italy born Out-ER label. Distant Echoes has been building a name in the last few years since he debuted on the Dystopian label in 2014 and toured all around the world, yet, […]
  • GOD.DAMN.CHAN ‘melt’
  • Alpha Pup’s latest release will arrive courtesy of Channing Day (a.k.a. GOD.DAMN.CHAN). The album, Slush, sits within the LA beat scene Day has recently made his home, with 10 tracks that provide a surrealist view into his life and, more precisely, the home in Portland he left behind for LA. Day first connected with the […]
  • Veronica Bianqui – Sunday Cups
  • Veronica Bianqui’s new single is tagged as “garage pop soul” and I couldn’t agree more. Complemented by kaleidoscopic artwork, it’s a psychedelic swirl of cross-genre influences that siphons the raw edge of garage rock, the infectiousness of pop, and the intrinsic dramatics of soul. There’s so much here to digest; I particularly love the simplicity […]
  • Ugly Boys – Bad Language
  • Fuck toxic relationships. What’s the point of keeping someone in your life who’s going to weigh you down? We have a finite amount of time on this earth – freedom to love and explore should be maximized, not restrained. Look up at the stars and into the universe, hold hands and soak up the rays […]
  • mikwerdna – “A Warm Shower on a Winter Morning in Pennsylvania” // Kenichi Hoshine
    3:13, via The Burning Ear
  • Visual art above by Kenichi Hoshine [via] “A Warm Shower on a Winter Morning in Pennsylvania” is the perfect summation of this hazy, blissful track featuring laid back grooves, xylophone charm, and downtempo perfection. Some sultry guitar-work fills in any empty spaces on the track, making it an absolute delight from start to finish. If […]
  • Isador – “Jungle” // James Fenner
    3:13, via The Burning Ear
  • Visual art above by James Fenner [via] “Jungle” is a very appropriate name for this aggressive pop track, because I feel like I’m being chased through a jungle while listening to it. Bombastic, catchy, and anthemic, this track will pump you up and out of any sort of bad mood you may be in. An […]
  • Benjamin Lazar Davis – “A Love Song Seven Ways” // Barnaby Ward
    3:13, via The Burning Ear
  • Visual art above by Barnaby Ward [via] A trained voice that is simple, warm, and welcoming serves as the bedrock for “A Love Song Seven Ways.” Benjamin Lazar Davis comes off as sweet and relatable with the pretty sounds that he showers the listener in. With a hint of Beatles era psychedelia, this is a […]
