Okay Kaya - IUD

Posted by 3 sites • On SoundCloud • Also on: Spotify
Since her breakout in 2015, NY-based Norwegian artist Kaya Wilkins has appeared in the film Thelma and collaborated with King Krule as well as her partner Porches. This compelling new single (and video) navigates complicated aspects of intimacy.

Cam O'bi - TenderHeaded feat. Smino

Chicago's Cameron Osteen is a behind-the-scenes beatmaker for Chance, Kendrick, and SZA. Soon he'll enter the forefront with Grown Ass Kid, which brings us the whimsical "TenderHeaded" featuring Smino and the laugh of O'bi's baby nephew.

Peggy Gou - It Makes You Forget (Itgehane) +1 remix

The Berlin-based Korean DJ connects with Ninja Tune for an EP due in March–a "match made in heaven," says Mixmag, praising the lead's fusion of electro, African music, house, and techno. It's also Gou's first recorded vocal performance.

Palm - Composite

Back in Stack №142, we featured Palm, the Philly outfit behind some of "right-now's strangest and most inventive rock music," says The Fader. Their dizzying output continues here, in advance of a new LP out next month on Carpark Records.

Charlotte Day Wilson - Nothing New

The 2016 debut EP from Toronto's Charlotte Day Wilson caught the ears of many (including collaborators BadBadNotGood and Daniel Caesar). The sparse and self-assured "Nothing New" suggests her next, Stone Woman, is poised to reach more.
oh my, the debut album from Minneapolis/New York pop trio NADINE.

HOLY - Heard Her

All A Dance, the new album from Stockholm-based psych-rock project HOLY.
A few days ago, London producer and Night Slugs associate Jam City tweeted out his EARTHLY 000 MIXTAPE, an explosive 25-minute mix of new work featuring Kelela, Flohio, Angel Diary, and more.

For Frieze, Jessica Hopper examines the essays collected in 2017 book Under My Thumb: Songs That Hate Women And The Women That Love Them.

"More than a book about music’s sexist history, this is a book about women carving an ornate space for themselves within music out of necessity; their willingness to tangle with these issues is a testimony to their love of music, and the lengths women must go to find some version of themselves reflected in it."

Thanks for listening!
