Marnie

Premiere: “Hearts On Fire” Video

Apr 18, 2014

Last year, Helen Marnie released a solo album called Crystal World. The electronic album shares a DNA with her main project Ladytron, although Marnie’s solo take is far more darkly ethereal. Check out the video for album cut “Hearts On Fire,” where Marnie explores her feelings while decorated with colored lights, glitter, and veils. You can also revisit her previous video “The Hunter” here.

AURAM

“Never Again” MP3

Apr 18, 2014

AURAM’s new track “Never Again” isn’t so much a remix of Little Dragon’s “Twice” as it is a complete reimagining. (Hence the name change.) Vocals swathed in a percussive tidal wave, this is electronic music at its darkest and most graceful.  Download the track below.

Luxembourg Signal

“Distant Drive” MP3 Stream

Apr 18, 2014

Los Angeles/London collective Luxembourg Signal is comprised of members of Aberdeen and Trembling Blue Stars. Their single “Distant Drive” sounds pretty much like what you would expect from two groups of that caliber. Prepare for shimmery, 90s-inspired guitars, a smattering of distortion, and a splash of sweetness. The band’s debut album will see the light of day in late summer of 2014 on Shelflife.

Glass Animals have shared another new track. “Pools” is a buoyant song, built on bubbly percussion and lithe vocals. There’s also a delicious sense of mystery. (Thank you reverb.) Check out the tune below. The band’s debut ZABA streets June 10 on Harvest Records. If you’re on Brooklyn, be sure to hit up their show on May 14.

Wolf Alice

“Storms” MP3 Stream

Apr 17, 2014

Moaning Lisa Smile,” the first track we heard from Wolf Alice’s forthcoming EP Creature Songs, was a noisy blitz. Our second listen “Storms” throws a bit of sugar in with the walls of guitar. But at three minutes, it’s still strong enough to shake you up and leave you wanting more. Check out the track below. Creature Songs streets May 26 on Dirty Hit Records.
