Today we launch our latest Recommended feature, highlighting music blog-curated events during CMJ next week (check it out here
). Smith Westerns-connected band Whitney are one of many playing AdHoc
's (very unofficial) show at a real car wash in Brooklyn.

One to watch, this 18 year old UK producer's last effort was a collab with West Coast MC Mr. Yote (released, via Slugabed's label, as a pink helium balloon with download code). Next, he drops an EP on FlyLo's Brainfeeder label featuring Cuushe among the guests.
Given their Cocteau Twins-like sound and creative history with fellow Grecians Keep Shelly In Athens, this brother-sister duo unsurprisingly has the ear of Gorilla Vs. Bear
, among others. He finds their debut "elegantly melodramatic and hypnotically off-kilter."
The latest from Danish singer-songwriter Kill J is crushing our charts. "An expert mash of r&b, electro and bubblegum pop," says Okayplayer
, this ex-lover's anthem (coming out on Copenhagen-based label No3), "pads a bitter pill with an irresistible groove."
Ex-ballerina and Silent Barn resident (btw
) Malory Butler has an EP out soon on Godmode (Shamir, YVETTE). Thump
digs this lead track (and its NY-at-night video) that pulsates with "staccato samples, too-warm-for-tech bass, and strong atmospherics."
, the weird and wonderful new album from Philadelphia-based songwriter Alex G, on Domino Records.
The FADER declares there's no such thing as “first” anymore. In that spirit, we're sharing this article two weeks late:
“In 2015—in music, especially—the first has been drowned by the flood. Exclusivity has given way to ubiquity. The novelty of the new has been replaced by its omnipresence."
Thanks for listening!
