is this highlight from the debut EP of Paris-based trio Oracle Sisters (Stack №275
), released last spring. Inspired by a real-life scorpion bite, it features their "signature three-part harmonies, reverbed guitars, and shimmering dreamlike charm," says Wickedd Childd
DC native dreamcastmoe's latest EP finds him "flipping between witty wordsmith and hazy hook crafter," says Okayplayer
, developing "a laidback lane of lo-fidelity rap that can enter and exit damn-near any genre or subdivision with ease and grace."
The self-titled debut album from Atlanta-based band Mamalarky is out now on Fire Talk. For The Rabbits
calls it "a fun, exciting and joyous expression of self," likening their angular, psychedelic style to Weaves (Stack №167
) and noise rock legends Deerhoof.
Montreal duo Isla Den completes a trilogy of EPs next week with the release of Virtual Garden
via Cascine. "Utopian rave pop" says Highclouds
, reviewing this "wistful and ethereal" lead single accompanied by a dreamy, apocalyptic self-directed video.
The Harlem-based bassist and harpist collected performances from a weekly webcast they started during quarantine, including several covers, for their new EP out today on International Anthem. Here they tackle a classic from Philly soul group The Stylistics.
DC beatmaker and singer dreamcastmoe makes Dekmantel a mix: "Drifting through jazz, r&b, funk, soul and house, his sound is fluid, heart wrenching and disarming."
For Vox, Tanya Pai tells the story behind "The 12 Days of Christmas," the holiday’s most annoying carol:
"Most agree it was designed as a ‘memory and forfeits’ game, in which singers tested their recall of the lyrics."
Thanks for listening!
