Montreals TOPS unveils the softest, most pillowy of jams, our current favorite from their stellar new album (although it could just as easily have come from the Top Gun soundtrack). Picture You Staring is out September 2 via our friends at Arbutus.

We’ve been waiting for this one for a minute: like-minded London producers/visionaries SOPHIE + A. G. Cook introduce their new creation, QT, and her anthem “Hey QT“, probably the fizziest, bounciest and most infectious jam of 2014. No word yet on an official release (looks like XL and Diplo are involved), but in the meantime we’ll be listening to this frustratingly short preview of the track on repeat at DRINKQT.COM. Catch QT live at Boiler Room LA along with Oneohtrix Point Never, Lunice, SOPHIE + more this Friday.

Catch SOPHIE live with Panda Bear + more next month at GvsB IV.

“The album is a document. A nod to that daily walk. Failed structures. Living in the remains of love. I left the songs the way they came (microwave beep from when power went out after a storm); I hope that the album bears some resemblance to the place that I was in.”Liz Harris on new album Ruins

Grouper‘s Ruins is out on Halloween via Kranky.
