KORALLREVEN - Here In Iowa +1 remix

After a fruitful run of Balearic pop offerings dating back to 2009, Swedish duo Korallreven bid farewell with "one of the most beautiful and vibrant tracks they’ve ever released", sighs Gorilla Vs. Bear. They'll perform one last time at Cascine's 5YR event in Brooklyn 9/17.

Spencer Radcliffe - Mia

The forthcoming LP from this Chicago-based songwriter (and DIY legend) is shaping up to be "one hell of a debut", declares The FADER, likening it to "Silver Jews [and] Built to Spill—but weirder, with surprising burps and dog barks collaged in."

Nokwazi - Yin' Uthando

Posted by 1 site • Also on: SpotifyApple Music
Little is known about Nokwazi. Awesome Tapes From Africa found this in a box of South African pop cassettes he was recently sent and reckons it's from the 90s. One thing is certain: "It's some really good Zulu soul melodies." You can hear more tracks on his site.

Summer Twins - Demons

From the west coast's thriving garage/psych scene comes this quartet (fronted by sisters Chelsea and Justine Brown) and their "blast-and-a-half of a tune" (Austin Town Hall). Via their new album, produced by Chris Woodhouse (Thee Oh Sees, Ty Segall).

Illa J - Never Left

The MC pays tribute to his older brother, the luminary J Dilla, on this smooth, sentimental new single that "coasts on cooled-out, shuffling production courtesy of Canadian duo Potatohead People," according to Okayplayer. His full album drops October 2nd.

Places Worn, the solo bedroom pop release from Washington-via-Texas artist Jesse Miller aka LUWUM.


The Independent looks at how today's online pirate radio stations are broadcasting to huge audiences... and working within the law.

"We can stream from someone’s house next to the beach in LA or from a little island off the coast of Italy."

Thanks for listening!
