After taking a bit of a break releasing music, diy musician Mesita is back with some new music in “The Villain”.  The first single from his upcoming album Infinity Sky Deluxe, the song comments on our society’s obsession with using social media to affect how we’re perceived by others and how it can cover up own emptiness.

Take a listen below.

Infatuation” by Liu Bei.  The video was created by London-based filmmaker Jake Dypka, who upon hearing an early demo of the song knew he had to be involved.  Dypka said the song transported him to his adolescence, to that time where every teenage crush eats you alive.  He wanted to shoot something that conveyed that, in the end they actually went to the town where he grew up, even filmed in his childhood home.

Have you heard the latest single from Rich Aucoin?  Here’s “Want To Believe”, off the upcoming second album, Ephemeral (Available September 9th, 2014 via Bonsound (Canada) and Young Enthusiastic Americans (USA) and available October 14th, 2014 via Platinum Records (France)).

Taking a breaking from relentlessworld-wide touring (cross-Canadian shows, European festivals, even a beach party in Madagascar), Aucoin distills all of his big ideas into 10 sharp dance-pop songs, creating one central message.  We must gather all things that cause fear and division, and use them to bring us together.

“In times like this/I wanna be a believer!”, Aucoin shouts on the driving, dynamic “Want to Believe,” an exuberant anthem mixed by Grammy Award winner Mick Guzauski (Daft Punk).

A little over a year ago (well a year and 2 weeks to be exact) we spoke about PLOY and their track VRDSNT.  Today, their new track “Sunset Love” gives us even more reason to beam and burst about the duo.  According to All Things Go, they’ll be releasing a track every Monday throughout July, so in the meantime this little up tempo electro-pop banger keeps the excitement we originally had still bubbling more than ever.  It’s up for a download and keep your eyes glued for more in the upcoming weeks…

There’s a very particular talent required when it comes to making song covers. It takes quite a lot for me to actually enjoy them when I really like the original track. And yet, sometimes it happens and I find myself relating to the cover more than I do to the original. This is exactly what happened today when I heard Warpaint‘s version of Duran Duran’s “The Chauffeur”. It is contemplative, ethereal, fragile and absolutely beautiful, building up to a finale filled with tribal-like drums and a very contagious sense of freedom and release.

The track is to make part of Modern and Manimal Records‘ upcoming tribute to Duran Duran for the benefit of Amnesty International, which will be out on July 15. ‘Making Patterns Rhyme: a tribute to Duran Duran’ is actually a very promising LP, with contributions from Little Dragon, Liars, Beliefs and Moby. Definitely keeping an eye out for this one!
