Yuko – While You Figure Things Out.

One of my favorite Belgian bands YUKO just released it’s third album “Long Sleeves Cause Accidents”. I am listening to it right now and after all the raving reviews I’ve read, I’m superexcited about it. So I suggest you do the same and go ahead and buy this fantastic album. Need to be convinced before you buy it? Just listen to the single “While You Figure Things out”. The track starts with an efficient guitar riff and turns into a melancholic vibed sundayevening track. Beautiful!

Eyedress – Hearing Colors.

Eyedress is a so called bedroom producer from Manila. You might know him from this a great EP “Supernatural“. It was filled with fantastic experimental beats: dark and hard but sultry and addictive at the same time, combined with female, angelic like vocals. He got a lot of buzz thanks to this EP, and is back in full force with a 12-track mixtape you can get for zero $$$$. Just go to his site and download that motherfucker for free. Don’t know Eyedress yet? Check out the video for “Teen Spirits” and please your inner hipsterneeds.

Wolf Alice – Moaning Lisa Smile.

Starting of with 5 seconds lofi guitars and kicking you in the face with a big guitar slam to continue with a perfect singalong chorus. That’s how we can describe the new Wolf Alice track “Moaning Lisa Smile”. The track will feature on their third EP “Creature Song” (out May 26th) which will probably be another great one.

Famous from his band the XX and from his magical productions, remixes, dj-sets… this man is one of the biggest talents you can find on this planet.

The Antlers – Palace.

The Antlers blew us away with their magical album “Burst Apart” in 2k11, mostly thanks to the emotional goosebump-providing “I Don’t Want Love“. From the first moment we heard this song (and later the full album), we knew we would love The Antlers until eternity. With new single “Palace” they just do what we expect from them: make beautiful, emotional and exquisite music. Perfect first taste from their upcoming new album “Familiars” (out June 16th).

Just Friends – Don’t Tell Me.

You might know Just Friends (Nicolas Jaar x Sasha Spielberg) from their Leonard Cohen “Avalanche” cover (2012). Well, great news: they are finally back with more! “Don’t Tell Me” is a homemade track with a “Mi Mujer” vibe and distant vocals by Miss Spielberg. Great one to kick back & relax.
Out on Vinyl for RSD or free to download if you subscribe to the mailingslist of Jaar’s label Other People.

Kwabs – Pray For Love.

Every song KWABS releases is spectacular thanks to his amazing voice: last stand, wrong or right, spirit fade… all those songs got our attention when we heard that voice. Dark, low but very soulful and emotional. That’s what you can expect in new track “Pray For Love”: woodkid-like percussion with that voice. Beautiful one:
