Otha - One Of the Girls

Posted by 13 sites • On SoundCloud • Also on: Spotify
Among the week's most Popular tracks is the debut single from Oslo's Othalie Husøy, aka Otha. "A pulsing, hands-in-the-air big-room anthem with a bedroom-pop heart," says Gorilla vs. Bear. She says it's about "being the boss of your own life."
Taylor Bennett (Chance's kid brother) shares the uplifting title track to his upcoming project. The Fader paraphrases his tireless flow: "everything from finding himself, his bisexuality, growing up in Chicago, and being comfortable in your own skin."

Out today on Inflated Records, the sophomore album from New Orleans duo Video Age has an '80s synth-pop flair: they cite McCartney II and Donald Fagen’s The Nightfly as influences. "All rubbery grooves with a dusty sheen," says Stereogum.

Tomberlin - Self-Help

Pariah - Linnaea

British producer Pariah shares his first bit of new music in six years, and news of a full-length with Fabric Records offshoot Houndstooth. "A highly evocative and richly textured seven-minute ambient gem," says Routinebiteshard.
