Anna McClellan - Heart of Hearts

Posted by 9 sites • On Bandcamp • Also on: SpotifyApple Music
"It's a let-me-just-dump-whatever-I'm-feeling-into-this-song song," Brooklyn-via-Omaha songwriter Anna McClellan tells The Fader about the spirited, jaunty "Heart of Hearts." It's the lead to her new album with Father/Daughter, due next February.

Ouri - Let Your Hair Down

Parisian-born, Montreal-based producer Ouri has continued her ascent since last spring, having appeared at Mutek, collaborated with Forever, and, here, connected with Michael Brock aka Mind Bath for a tender, club-ready 3-track collection.

Hovvdy - Late

This Austin-based, Double Double Whammy-signed duo write melancholic pop songs in a vein similar to those of tourmate (Sandy) Alex G. Hovvdy say this one works "through patterns of the kind of fear and anxiety that's in hindsight irrational."

Kelly Lee Owens - Spaces

Just weeks after covering Aaliyah, London-based techno-dream-pop producer and Stack favorite Kelly Lee Owens shares this airy bonus track alongside a deluxe version of her self-titled LP, one of the year's finest, on Smalltown Supersound.
The aformentiond Ouri dials in a pulsing mix for Montreal radio show La Beatmakerie.

NPR on the rewiring of our relationship to music.

"Clearly, I was listening to a streaming-service algorithm. The overall sequence made no sense. The music in that place, while I was there, at first felt like a gift—and then like an encounter with an alien presence. It had "taste"—and then no-taste."

Thanks for listening!
