“sekret” (single) – ronela hajati

So you didn’t win Eurovision this year. So you got eliminated in the semi-finals, despite being heavily favored to win the whole shebang. So the jury allegedly penalized you for your dance moves, despite the fact that you whipped a solid four-plus feet of hair extensions, helicopter-like, for nearly two full minutes. Good news, Ms. […]

System Exclusive – System Exclusive [Castle Face]

Synth-heavy dance-punk inspired by the 2000s New York scene. Vocals are reminiscent of Karen O at times. Producer Enrique Tena Padilla’s portfolio includes work with Osees, Wand, & Beach House. This record is also approved by Henry Rollins (if that means anything to you). Great stuff! Play: 1, 4*, 5, 11 RIYL: LCD Soundsystem, Yeah […]

Defrag – “GlassShip” (Single) [Hymen]

It’s difficult to judge an artist’s whole body of work off of one single, so I’m not entirely sure that Defrag’s “development as a composer has violently touched every genre” as the promo blurb insists, but this particular single touches down somewhere between goth rock and ambient, with a soupçon of vaporwave thrown in for […]

Birthday Massacre – Dreams of You (Single)[Metropolis]

Very cool, “dreamy” but dark electronic tune. FCC: Clean RIYL: Collide, Ayria, Angelspit

Mako Bron – Straight Down [Marshmallow Pavement]

Straight Down is Mako Bron’s second single release in 2021, and the second single from his forthcoming EP. Exhibiting Mako Bron’s ability to compose sophisticated alt-pop, Straight Down pulses with connective big-picture energy. RIYL: Talk Talk, Psychedelic Furs FCC: Clean

Odonis Odonis – Spectrums [Felte]

From promoter: “On Spectrums, Odonis Odonis showcase the extreme ends of their musical margins. Embracing a love of ‘80s goth and darkwave melodicism while maintaining an industrial strength intensity, the dualities of their sound are revealed in a striking new light. With four albums under their belts, the Toronto-based duo of Dean Tzenos and Denholm Whale […]

Benjamin Lew & Steven Brown – Douzieme Journee: Le Verbe, La parure, L’amour [Crammed Discs

This is sooooo out there. Trippy, funky, but really weird and squeaky. Great combination of things. Recommend: #3,5,6. RIYL: Can, John Hassell. FCC: Clean

Reveries – Innervoice [2814962]

Really enjoyable electronic duo that reminds me of M83, Postal Service, and Alvvays. Short EP that packs a punch!
