Melbourne-based experimental pop and performance artist Sui Zhen just announced her new album with Cascine and Dot Dash. She cites the disembodiment of digital life, the loss of loved ones, and the inventive work of Laurie Anderson, Lizzy Mercier, and Holly Herndon as inspirations.
Rooted in Chicago's overlapping hip-hop and soul scenes, Kaina has worked with Saba (Stack №114
) and Sooper Records, the label run by Sen Morimoto (№181
) and Nnamdi Ogbonnaya (№125
). Per Chicago Reader, her soulful debut "takes its strength from friends and collaborators, her childhood mentors, her immigrant parents."
Featuring members of CC Dust (Stack №132
) and Trans FX, Daisies update the '80s Paisley Underground sound with “washes of synth, delicate melodies, bouncy minimal drum machine lines, and sweet vocals...an effervescent confection,” says Bandcamp Daily
Christopher Taylor started recording as Body Meat after discovering late Denver DIY space Rhinoceropolis. Now based in Philly, he recently talked to Pitchfork
, who describe his latest as "a collection of raucous tracks combining Nigerian vocal samples, video-game plinks, deep grunts, high-pitched chirps, and all manner of drums, spliced together into unpredictable patterns."
After co-writing Sharron Van Etten's hit single "Seventeen," Kate Davis turns to her debut album, Trophy
, out in November on Solitaire Recordings. Mixing "tenderness and a certain air of swagger," says The Line of Best Fit
, this single "serves as both ear-worm and ruminative confessional."
Cut Your Teeth
, the debut LP from Vancouver-based post-punk band Necking.
Hot Chip bring a breezy selection of house music to Bleep's mix series, featuring several exclusive Felix Martin edits.
Red Bull Music Academy Daily's Sharine Taylor delivers the essential guide to dancehall:
"Dancehall is as much about music as it is about the fashion, dance and art that surrounded it. It wasn’t just a genre, it was a way of life."
Thanks for listening!
