Boston Bun & Jodie Abacus - Banana

In between work on his first solo album with producers like Duke Dumont, Julio Bashmore, SOHN and Royce Wood, Jr., south London singer Abacus keeps dropping gems like this new summer jam with Parisian house producer (and Ed Banger affiliate) Boston Bun.

Omni - Wire

Posted by 5 sites • On Bandcamp • Also on: SpotifyApple Music
Featuring a former Deerhunter and two members of Atlanta band Carnivores (with whom Bradford Cox once guested), Omni recalls the post-punk of early Talking Heads as much as it does the members' previous bands. Forthcoming on reliable indie Trouble In Mind.

DΔWN (Dawn Richard) - Serpentine Fire

Supreme low-key fire from Stack favorite and Hype Hotel alum D∆WN (aka Dawn Richard), who's back today with this one-off for the Adult Swim Singles program. Brief and "breezy" (FACT), the track is produced by none other than Warp roster elite Clark.

Cool Ghouls - Sundial

San Francisco quartet Cool Ghouls' avowed mission is to "get the floor at the house party to cave in." They return this week with word of a new LP due in August (we premiered the previous one here), preceded by this sunny psych-pop delight.

Rival Consoles - Lone

Following 2015 breakout Howl—an excellent collection of moody, textural dance music—the British producer announces a mini-album with longtime label Erased Tapes (Nils Frahm, Kiasmos), taking the name Night Melody from its nocturnal recording sessions.

More from artists on this week's Stack available at Amoeba Music: here, here, and here.

Dan Lissvik - N

Midnight, the new album from Dan Lissvik (formerly of Studio).

Buzzfeed on the story of the fake Zombies, the strangest con in rock history:

"In 1969, the Zombies had a huge hit single, despite having broken up two years earlier. To meet the unexpected demand, one promoter did the only sensible thing: Hire four kids from Texas to tour America pretending to be a defunct British psych-rock band."

Thanks for listening!
