Together, Versis and SWARVY (Stack №296) are TOKAYO, credited here for production on the former's new VíA DEL SOL project, a handful of laidback rap/soul songs "keeping it all the way funky," says Okayplayer.

Posted by 2 sites • On Bandcamp • Also on: Spotify
Men I Trust (Stack №158) take Popular's top spot this week with one of the many slow jams on their new Untourable Album. "Aqueous and washed out indie-jazz-hop from the Montreal trio," writes Dan Digs.

Mano Le Tough - Man Of Aran

Posted by 2 sites • On Bandcamp • Also on: Spotify
Per Passion of The Weiss, Irish producer Mano Le Tough's latest album (out on DJ Koze's Pampa Records) is "bursting with ideas, moving from moments of techno ecstasy to songs built around guitar lines that wouldn't sound out of place on an Explosions in the Sky song."

Wednesday - One More Last One

Posted by 4 sites • On Bandcamp • Also on: Spotify
Operating out of Asheville, NC, the self-dubbed "country gaze" band Wednesday has a record out now on Orindal. Aquarium Drunkard says this highlight "adheres to classic dream pop trappings, but there's a Southern gothic bent to the way vocalist Karly Hartzman, accompanied by Xandy Chelmis, spins a cryptic tale of survival from behind a wall of fuzz."


On her third LP, Lingua Ignota confronts the religious severity of rural Pennsylvania, adopting a palette of piano, cello, banjo, and other Appalachian instruments. "Across these nine tracks she creates a metaphorical ecosystem that ruminates on the impact of piety, rebirth, forgiveness, and catharsis," says Loud and Quiet.

Water From Your Eyes - Quotations

Posted by 5 sites • On Bandcamp • Also on: Spotify
Brooklyn's Water From Your Eyes (Stack №171) make their Wharf Cat Records debut with Structure, a mesmerizing album that jumps from "waterlogged ’60s pop crooners to propulsive, jagged dance music to baroque, maudlin ballads to nonsensical spoken-word interludes," says Stereogum.
Mano Le Tough lays down a breezy set for the radio show of Berlin-based label Keinemusik.

For BBC, Nick Levine explores the power and influence of "Edge of Seventeen" by Stevie Nicks:

"It's a song that operates on several levels—at once an instant hit of rock drama and a heady meditation on death—and seems to yield something new every time you play it."

Thanks for listening!
