Mall Grab – Can’t Take It No More

MALL GRAB

Mall Grab's stellar Sun Ra EP and his sick Yaeji collabs are some of our favorite releases of 2016, and the young Australian producer continues his quietly prolific/massive year with this feel-good house gem, taken from another new release he has lined up to drop next month on his own label Steel City Dance Discs...

Amber Mark – Monsoon (feat. Mia Mark)

AMBER + MIA MARK

NYC newcomer Amber Mark drops a heartfelt new track in memory of her late mother Mia on the anniversary of her passing. Mixed by Alex Epton and premiered by Zane Lowe yesterday, "Monsoon", is an achingly beautiful tribute, and the all-too-relatable sentiment and love that Amber conveys is both totally devastating and gloriously life-affirming...

premiere: EKKAH x DāM-FunK – What’s Up

HEY BECKS

NV – Binasu

Binasu

Thanks to Adam for the heads up on Russian experimental pop luminary Kate Shilonosova, aka NV, and her entrancing and addictive new album Binasu. The adventurous, genre-defying record is teeming with otherworldly, '80s Japanese new wave-indebted pop vibes, and with songs like the very kawaii "Kata" and the twinkling title track recalling the bright playfulness of some of Miharu Koshi's more out-there stuff, it's quickly become one of our favorite underground gems of 2016 so far...

premiere: Yoo-Yoo – “Pet Shop Boys”

YOO_YOO_cover

Yoo-Yoo is a new group from Sweden that, as former Korallreven member Marcus Joons tells us via email, is "made up by Korallreven, ORKID, Thanxxx, friends and lovers". Their blissed-out debut single elicits a breezy wistfulness and the distinct, welcome tinge of instant nostalgia, not unlike the feeling we got the first time we heard Korallreven's magical tropical balearic pop back in 2009...

Madeline Kenney – Signals

MADELINE KENNEY

Shout out to Chaz Bundick for the heads up on the latest signee to his label Company Records, Oakland's Madeline Kenney, and her forthcoming new EP, recorded with Chaz in his Berkeley studio. Madeline's bandcamp bio says of her self-described "twang-hazy dream pop": "It's like if Loretta Lynn had a secret shoegaze project and an obsession with a looper pedal"...
