Magdalena Bay - How to Get Physical

Posted by 10 sites • On SoundCloud • Also on: Spotify
Magdalena Bay (Stack №242) know their way around an infectious hook and a green screen. The latest from the Luminelle-signed LA-based synth-pop duo in a series of singles and VHS-styled music videos is now climbing up Popular.

DJ Haram - Get It (feat. Orion Sun)

Philly-based songwriter and producer Tiffany Majette aka Orion Sun (Stack №215) returns with her debut single for Mom & Pop as well as this cameo on DJ Haram's contribution to HyperSwim, a joint release by Hyperdub and Adult Swim. "An ancient flute meets a massive bassline. It bangs," says Resident Advisor.

Cable Ties - Sandcastles

Posted by 2 sites • On Bandcamp • Also on: Spotify
The new single from Melbourne's Cable Ties "simmers with a barely contained bile," says Raven Sings The Blues, calling the Poison City/Merge-signed band the heirs apparent to punk legends X-Ray Spex. "When singer Jenny McKechnie turns her sonic sweep on a target, there's no mercy, no restraint."

Lyra Pramuk - Tendril

Posted by 3 sites • On Bandcamp • Also on: Spotify
Operatically-trained, Berlin-based artist Lyra Pramuk makes self-described "futurist folk music" comprised entirely of her own voice layered and manipulated with electronics. Known for collabs with Holly Herndon and Colin Self, she'll release her debut album this spring via Icelandic label Bedroom Community.

Katy J Pearson - Tonight

Posted by 4 sites • On Bandcamp • Also on: Spotify
Released at the end of 2019, the first solo single from Bristol-based songwriter Katy J Pearson (Kitten And Bear, Ardyn) introduces a brass-backed country folk pop flair complete with a line dancing music video. It's out on Heavenly Recordings. Hat tip, Dev.

Lyra Pramuk assembles a far-reaching mix of music from experimental contemporaries (Laurel Halo, Yves Tumor) and pioneers (Meredith Monk, Psychic TV) for the art and culture platform AQNB.


For MEL Magazine, writer Chris Bourn explores whether normal people can tell the difference between the remastered album and the regular one:

"The nuances in EQ and incremental adjustments in remastered records have more of an effect on you than you might think."

Thanks for listening!
