EDC ESSENTIALS

stream Erika de Casier’s stellar debut LP Essentials

If we didn't adequately hype this one up enough with the Sade and Smerz comparisons when we premiered her dreamy "Good Time" video a couple weeks back, allow us to try again: Copenhagen's Erika de Casier just dropped her debut record on a Thursday, and it's one of the year's best...

brijean walkie talkie

Our intro to Bay Area "backroom disco" duo Brijean -- the project of percussionist Brijean Murphy, who has worked with GvsB favs Toro Y Moi, U.S. Girls, and Poolside, among others -- came via the shimmery, sensuous single "Show and Tell", which sounds a bit like Stereolab gone full-on dreamy disco-pop, Brijean's silky vocals wafting over an infectious tropical groove that feels destined to soundtrack countless pool parties and topdown twilight drives up the coast...

check the exhilarating debut album from mysterious new group Sault

SAULT

We're obsessed these days with a mysterious, Kid Sister-affiliated new group called Sault, who just dropped their debut full-length 5 on Forever Living Originals. The record is a genre-defying collection of timeless, dance-soul-funk hybrid summer jams with a modern flair, ranging from irresistible party starters ("Up All Night") and disco-tinged anthems ("Why Why Why Why Why") to gorgeous Motown-inspired love songs ("Masterpiece"), and it's one of the most vibrant and exhilarating records we've heard this year...

Maraschino – True Lover

MARASCHINO

Produced by Chris Coady (Beach House, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Grizzly Bear, Amen Dunes, et al.), "True Lover" is a bright and glittery synth-pop banger / break-up anthem that feels like an effervescent rush of '80s nostalgia, and has us very psyched to hear more from Pipes' new project. Listen below, and help support Maraschino's first-ever North American tour opening for Drugdealer here.

BEST OF 2019.5 FEATURED

As we approach the midway point of 2019, here's our constantly evolving recap of our favorite albums, songs, and videos from the first half of an already insane year. In an era when truly special new records seem to evade or evaporate from the internet's collective consciousness at an unsettling rate -- in many cases before they're even officially released -- it's not easy to keep up, but I've done my best...
