“1000” by Ben Khan, the first single taken from Ben’s forthcoming EP of the same name (out May 11th on his imprint Blessed Vice).
Tough to cut down the Hype Machine Top 50 to just a few key tracks. Here’s what made the short list.
Burgeoning UK songwriter Will Joseph Cook has a new song online, “Daisy Chains”, part of his new EP release “You Jump I Run”. Think I’m more a fan of “Message“, but this one definitely was worth putting here.
EMBRZ is the project of Jack Casey, who’s name might ring a bell if you’re searching soundcloud for Ellie Goulding and The 1975 remixes. Here’s an original, with vocal help via Amy Rose. Check out “Silent”.
Baltimore-based trio Misun have a new single called “After Me”, the lead single from their forthcoming EP, Feel Better.
Glassnote really has their finger on the pulse of great new music, evidenced again by the news of their upcoming release of Holychild‘s oddly titled The Shape of Brat Pop to Come (out June 2nd). Check out a track from the album, “Money All Around”.
Finally, I’ve covered everything so far from vocal talent Rebecca Clements, so why stop now? Here’s her doing a Cure cover of “Boys Don’t Cry”.
Ah, the fun I’d have if I had one of these LED-panelled video trucks for a night. Montreal electro trio Seoul did just that for their video for “The Line”.
“The Line” is from Seoul’s upcoming record I Become A Shade, out June 9. The album is available for preorder via the band’s label Grand Jury and on iTunes.
Today’s track is an absolute beauty. Here’s “Sister”, the last track from newcomer The Japanese House‘s debut EP, Pools To Bathe In, due out on April 27th through Dirty Hit Records. Since putting up “Teeth” earlier this month, I haven’t been able to get enough of this 19 year-old’s brooding, melancholic electronica.
Artist to watch for sure.
