Niki Moss – Soylent Green

Soylent Green is an ultra-catchy merging of electro-pop and rock, courtesy of Portuguese act Niki Moss. Niki Moss is the alias for multi-instrumentalist Miguel Vilhena (also founder of the label Pontiaq, lead vocalist of the psychedelic rock band Savanna, and producer of various Portuguese indie bands).

Lauren Lakis – Lead Us On

Feminist lo-fi garage rock artist, Lauren Lakis has dropped a new single full of gritty guitars, resonating melodies and ethereal vocals. With the desire to express something human and honest, Lakis takes it upon herself to say the things that most people feel uncomfortable to say. The track is taken off the album FEROCIOUS, which is set for release June 22nd via Cavity Search Records

Margot – Twenty Six

We featured Margot back in April, and their second track is just as irresistably dreamy as the first. The track is a discussion the singer, Alex Hannaway has with himself,  “A self-reflective hangover where you make pledges to yourself, full up with anxiety and memory loss. Think the artwork pretty much sums it up.”

Cookin Soul – Lostyamind

Spanish producer Cookin Soul rustles up a sensuous piece of instrumental electro that hits the sweaty, hot-summer note right on the head.

CROOKED TEETH – THE AMERICAN DREAM

After impressing at The Great Escape festival, British band Crooked Teeth return with another single which is full of jagged, noirish electronica that channels a feeling of post-punk disillusionment in its downbeat guitar lines and cynical – yet sharply infectious – vocals. To put it simply, it’s a bit of alright this one!

Mavi Phoenix – Bite

 

One of the most talked about Austrian artists at the moment returns with another infectious track full of her usual attitude, slick beats and a healthy dose of auto-tune.

Glass Famine – GRUMBLING BELLIES

New Chicago-based band Glass Famine have released a single from a collection of tracks that will be dropping in July. Grumbling Bellies is a delightful piece of Avant pop that reminds you of  mid-to-late 70s Lou Reed amongst others.

MUTE SWAN – ENOUGH FUN
Tucson hazy shoegazers Mute Swan have released a cool lo-fi track with their trademark Sonoran desert melted shoegaze and a VHS-style video that is super Galaxie 500-y about the 1%. Watch it below.
