Maria Usbeck shares the second single from her lovely new album Envejeciendo, coming next month via Cascine. The radiant, soothing synth-pop gem "Nostalgia", which comes complete with one the most spot-on visualizers we've seen, undulates and shimmers like hazy morning sunlight reflecting off concentric waves, conjuring a very specific and relatable feeling that's as warm and wistful as the song's quite literal title implies...

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...
