Dominic Sen is the pop and sci-fi/fantasy-enthused persona of Brooklyn songwriter and producer Alexandra Lily Cohen. She says the sleek and buoyant "Atalanta," her second single with Roll Call Records, is a piece of musical fanfiction for the myth of Atalanta, giving "a more fulfilling ending for the woman at its center."
Here's the first new music in 2019 from the Zambian-born, Botswana-raised, Melbourne-based MC (Stack №164
). Produced by Silentjay and mixed by Jonwayne, the fiery, classic hip-hop-inspired single finds Sampa leveling up and "calling out any negativity towards that growth process," she says.
New Zealand producer Ruby Kerkhofs aka Nice Girl readies her debut 12" with Houses in Motion. Per Gorilla Vs. Bear
, this cut is a "sprawling roller, featuring some haunting disembodied vocal samples floating over the hypnotically propulsive beat."
NYC-based artist Jitwam (Stack №150
) was born in India, raised in Australia, and has crossed several continents since. Fusing that global sensibility, "he fills the spaces in Detroit house with beat scene-influenced bass, sings R&B vocals with a punk rock sneer, doses neo-soul synths with psychedelia," says Bandcamp Daily
Following two much-loved EPs backed by nonstop touring, Brooklyn-via-Boston band Crumb (Stack №118
) soon self-release their full-length debut, Jinx
, which is poised to resonate with psychedelic rock fans and jazz heads alike.
, the new LP from Brooklyn-based alt-pop songwriter Yohuna.
, the new LP from psych-jazz duo Mattson 2.
New Zealand's Nice Girl makes Night Pottery a laid-back, oddball mix of Eastern European alt-pop, dub, experimental percussion, and new wave.
The Ringer asks if Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, and Miley Cyrus can survive in a new world with Billie Eilish, Lil Nas X, and Ariana Grande:
"Pop music in the late 2010s is simply moving too fast for even the biggest and best and shrewdest artists to age convincingly, let alone gracefully."
Thanks for listening!
