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.
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.
"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.
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
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
"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!
