Tiña - I Feel Fine

As per the parameters of London label Speedy Wunderground, the new single from Tiña was recorded in a single-day session with producer Dan Carey. Clash Magazine calls it a mix of "wiry post-punk thrills" and psych-pop reminiscent of Wand and Ty Segall.

Jansport J - sayless.

Posted by 2 sites • On Bandcamp • Also on: SpotifyApple Music
LA's own Jansport J has been prolific lately, releasing a new beat tape each month since December. The title track to his latest offers "bright, richly layered soul bolstered by crisp percussion and twinkling keys," says Bandcamp Daily.

Lisel - Digital Light Field

The solo debut from Pavo Pavo's Eliza Bagg as Lisel (out soon on Luminelle Recordings) finds the multi-instrumentalist centering compositions around her voice. Here, it "swells and modulates," says Highclouds; "more angel than alien," above airy synths.

Steve Lacy - Like me (feat. DAISY)

Last week, The Internet's Steve Lacy (Stack №129) dropped Apollo XXI, building off the promise of his lo-fi pop demos in 2017. Pitchfork calls this 9-minute, shapeshifting suite "a proper introduction to Lacy's ambitions, anxieties, and identity."

LSD - Process 7

Posted by 8 sites • On Bandcamp • Also on: SpotifyApple Music
The collaborative project of Luke Slater, Steve Bicknell, and David Summer (aka Function) launches a new self-titled LSD imprint. Their first entry is a "six-track double pack of propulsive, lysergic techno," says FACT.

Feeling's Not A Tempo, the new LP from NYC art pop duo Gemma.

Beatsmith Jansport J joins DJ Mza's Soul Circle Radio show for a 2-hour block of old-school hip-hop and R&B.

Pitchfork gives a big picture overview of the music industry's financial viability:

"The Music Industry Research Association’s survey of working musicians suggests that streaming will have a long way to go before most artists can rely on it to pay the bills."

Thanks for listening!
