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...

FEAR OF MEN

Fear of Men share one of our favorite tracks of 2016 so far, taken from their forthcoming LP Fall Forever. The group's spectral, chill-inducing new single "Sane" is a raw embodiment of the record's themes of empowerment and "emotional extremes", and it's one of the most cinematic and powerful missives the band has recorded to date...
