Lou Rebecca - Tonight

Posted by 13 sites • On Bandcamp • Also on: Spotify
The debut EP from Parisian born, Austin-based synth-pop artist Lou Rebecca has struck over a dozen sites in our index. 20JFG says it's "a manic sampling" of all their favorite things: "ultra slick guitar chords, angelic vocals, Hi-NRG basslines."

cuco - Sunnyside

19-year-old Omar Banos tells The Bay Bridged that as a Chicano from Hawthorne, California making dream-pop, his music is a form of resistance. "I'm representing, like, a very unrepresented group." His latest is a blissful, hyperrealist drifter.
Caleb Giles plays saxophone in Crown Heights-based freeform group Standing On The Corner (Stack №137). On this solo outing as an MC, he lets some of the collective's warped jazz seep in, along with a sleepy verse from its co-founder.

C.A.R. - Growing Pains

Posted by 3 sites • On Bandcamp • Also on: SpotifyApple Music
Out soon on Ransom Note's label, the new LP from Chloé Raunet aka C.A.R. (formerly of Battant) is a hazy mix of post-punk, electronica, and outsider pop. The album is about "coming out of the shadows (in all their forms)," she says.

Anenon - Two for C

LA producer/composer Anenon follows up his critically acclaimed 2016 album with a new collection of avant jazz electronics recorded in a makeshift attic studio on a 16th-century Tuscan villa. It arrives next week on Friends of Friends.

Poppy Ackroyd - The Calm Before

Resolve, the new LP from post-classical composer Poppy Ackroyd.
As part of a comprehensive Mixmag feature on Kazakhstan's underground scene, Almaty-based DJ Nazira showcases "the rowdy techno sound of The New East."

Pigeons & Planes on the fascinating rise of YouTube music reaction videos.

"If technology is causing people to experience music together in person less than ever, maybe they're filling their social music needs by watching strangers react to their favorite songs on the internet."

Thanks for listening!
