Call Me

Premiere: “Change” MP3 Stream

Jul 31, 2014

A few months ago, we premiered “Disclosed,” a track from Stockholm artist Call Me. We enjoyed it so much we decided to go back for more. Check out our new reveal “Change.” The track’s got a nice electronic bounce with some serious emotion going on in the vocals. Like it? (Hey, so do we!) be sure to grab the song on August 1 via Luxury.

Kamp!

Premiere: Kamp!: “Early Days” MP3 Stream

Jul 30, 2014

We’ve made no secret of our love for Polish trio Kamp!. While they’ve been fairly quiet on the new music front (save for this saucy video) that’s all about to change with the release of their three-song EP Baltimore on August 26. (Cascine will be doing the honors.) Before that, we’ve got the premiere of their new single “Early Days.” It was clearly recorded in the intersection between pop and dance. (a.k.a. the place we wouldn’t mind living.) Take a listen below. If it does it for you, click here to be magically transported to their preorder page.

Take a listen below. Rebeka’s Unconscious EP is out now on Brennessel.
