On just their 3rd single to date (and first to be released physically, via Moshi Moshi), London trio Girl Ray look back to classic British pop with a certain "charming, antiquated glow," says Gold Flake Paint
, while any lyrical self-loathing is uplifted by a playful bassline.
Since going solo last year, the Filipino-British singer (who rose to stardom with international pop group The Saturdays) has reinvented herself with a string of independent R&B singles. Her latest, says The Fader
, is made for "cruising with the top down."
Yet another impressive new band out of Denmark, the eight tracks on IRAH's debut EP were recorded half in Copenhagen and half in a fomer radio studio in East Berlin. Out Friday, it offers plenty for fans of Kate Bush and, on this track, the Cocteau Twins.
Jackson's Scott's idiosyncratic, lo-fi psych-pop takes on a new, fuller sound in this recently-formed band of Asheville, NC, friends. On their upcoming album, Noisey
hears the "lysergic rock of Spaceman 3 [and] indie melody of early Merge records."

Here's two Rhythm Section residents treating Boiler Room to an expansive warm-up set, repping the laid back vibes of their Peckham Strong collective. "Recorded live in the dance with two turntables, quality E&S mixer and the all-important dub FX."
The Creative Independent talks with Anohni (the musician formerly known as Antony Hegarty) about art, corporations, and the music industry:
"All it took was one generation to forget. It’s like, you clearcut a forest and a few years later the young ones never remember that there were ever any trees. They grew up playing on dead stumps and that’s the new normal."
Thanks for listening!
