One of the most talked-about releases on Hype Machine this summer is the latest LP from Chicago trio DEHD, out now on Fire Talk. "The band's guitar pop sound is high on energy, while also staring down uncomfortable emotion with its lyrical prowess," says Clash Magazine
After collaborations with childhood friend Earl Sweatshirt, Los Angeles-based singer and multi-instrumentalist Miles Shannon arrives at his full-length debut as CASSOWARY. Per Bandcamp Daily
, "the record is a harmonically rich modern jazz project that gives L.A. beat scene influences the sonic patina of garage rock."
Under his K-LONE project, British producer Josiah Gladwell creates blissful downtempo dance music with digital instrumentation—marimba and bottles, bells, birds, and beyond. His debut LP saw release last spring via his own label Wisdom Teeth, followed by an EP in June.
A good handful of outlets are buzzing about Brighton quartet Nature TV, Surviving The Golden Age
among them, who likens the band's jangly sound to Real Estate and The Smiths. Their new single "Hometown" comes after two EPs since 2018.
Amsterdam's Nana Adjoa is prepping the September release of her debut LP, Big Dreaming Ants
. Here's the latest song to surface, which Gorilla vs. Bear
calls a "vibrant, elegantly understated but sonically adventurous anthem."
K-LONE introduces his mix of dreamy ambient techno and new-age for Bleep: "A selection of cuts from my favourite albums I was listening to around the time of writing Cape Cira, mostly the sort of stuff for listening to at home rather than the club."
For The New Yorker, Zadie Smith reflects on Joni Mitchell and how we find music:
"Is it too late to get into Talking Heads? Do I have the time? What kind of person would I be if I knew this album at all, or well?"
Thanks for listening!
