Litany: “Look” MP3 Stream

Sep 22, 2014

“Look” is a haunting piece of down tempo electronica from English duo, Litany. It’s a hauntingly simple track, frontwoman Beth Cornell’s soprano soaring above a bed of barely-there beats. Take a listen below.

Paula i Karol

“Heartwash” Video

Sep 21, 2014

We’ve already seen the video for “Someday,” an excellent cut from Polish folk outfit Paula i Karol’s forthcoming album Heartwash. Now you can check out a few visuals for the title track. That’s the gang inside of Warsaw’s Neon museum (a.k.a. one of the coolest places in the city). Catch the playful vibes below. Heartwash streets Sept 12.




“One More (Featuring MØ)” MP3

Sep 19, 2014

For her newest simmering single, Swedish singer (and occasionally rapper) Elliphant invited to hang. The ladies’ voices pair well together, capture both a perfect pop essence and the grittiness of the street. It’s the kinda party we’d like to be at. Take a listen below.



The Weeknd

“Often Enough (White Sea Remix)” MP3 Stream

Sep 19, 2014

White Sea’s Morgan Kibby (who also does double duty as a member M83) has always leaned toward the pop end of the musical spectrum. But on her new remix of The Weeknd track “Often Enough” the Saturdays = Youth songstress dips into her sultry side, trading some semi-NSFW lines alongside Abel Tesfaye like she was born in the R&B world. Listen below.

“Grip” MP3 Stream

Sep 19, 2014

Mysterious Manchester-based producer Oceaán continues his reign of glitchy goodness with his new track “Grip.” Like his previous efforts (revisit his self-titled debut EP here) the track is a haunting piece of minimal electro that unspools in an elegant series of hypnotic beats. Oh yeah, it’s that good. Listen below.

Premiere: “Perfect Son (otwARTa Scena Live Session)” Video

Sep 18, 2014

Our pal Coldair (a.k.a. Tobiasz Biliński) is currently recording the follow-up to last year’s, Whose Blood. His new otwARTa Scena live session gives us a tiny taste of what’s in store. “Perfect Son” replaces much of the folk leanings of his previous work with some seriously heavy electronic beats and haunting falsetto. Promising. Check out our premiere of the live video below. His new album is slated to be released sometime next year.
