Japan, Man - Stop Staring

Posted by 3 sites • On SoundCloud • Also on: Spotify
The first upload from Beirut's Laeticia Acra, aka Japan, Man is a "dreamy, youthful jam that reminds us a bit of Clairo's endearing bedroom pop," says Gorilla vs. Bear. A promising debut, especially considering Acra is only 14.

ZelooperZ - Easter Sunday feat. Earl Sweatshirt

Left-field Detroit rapper ZelooperZ is a member of Danny Brown’s Bruiser Brigade, has collaborated with fellow hometown heroes Shigeto and Black Noi$e, and connects with Earl Sweatshirt here on a feel-good standout from his latest album Dyn-O-Mite.

Weird Milk - Honey, I'm Around

Posted by 9 sites • On SoundCloud • Also on: Spotify
"Hopefully this song reaches out to people and makes them want to go for a drive, go (legally) fast, window cracked open, wind in hair, etc," says Weird Milk's Alex Griffiths, in conversation with Hard of Hearing Music. The London-based indie pop band is among this week's most-posted on Hype Machine.

Octo Octa - Spin Girl, Let's Activate!

Posted by 9 sites • On SoundCloud • Also on: Spotify
Another much-talked-about track this week belongs to Octo Octa (Stack №217). Recorded in a cabin in New Hampshire, her upcoming album melds "the rituals she conducts in the wild with her healing approach to rave and the dancefloor," per FACT.

Ami Dang - Raiments

Posted by 3 sites • On Bandcamp • Also on: Spotify
The new LP from Baltimore's Ami Dang finds the South Asian-American sitarist and composer drawing influence from Middle Eastern folklore. Ambient, trance-inducing instrumentals, "delicate and gorgeous," says Cast The Dice.

Lisel - Ciphers

Posted by 1 site • On SoundCloud • Also on: Spotify
Angels on the Slope, the debut album from LA-based experimental pop project Lisel.
"House is a vessel to bring us together," says Octo Octa, delivering a vinyl mix of powerful statement tracks for Mixmag's cover feature.

NPR's Paula Mejía explores the alternatives to streaming for artists:

"While streaming continues to evolve at a breakneck pace, the system through which artists are paid for the music being listened to hasn’t evolved in tandem."

Thanks for listening!
