Topping Popular 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."

Mamalarky - Fury

Posted by 7 sites • On Bandcamp • Also on: Spotify
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.

Isla Den - Sad Age

Posted by 1 site • On SoundCloud • Also on: Spotify
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.

Dezron Douglas & Brandee Younger - You Make Me Feel Brand New

Posted by 6 sites • On Bandcamp • Also on: Spotify
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!
