Tei Shi (née Valerie Teicher) returns with an intense first glimpse at the wealth of new material she has in store (says Val: “Bassically is the first birdy to fly away, and it’s one that I hope will make you guys dance around in your room like this“), and it’s one of the more badass, body-movin jams we’ve heard this year. It did make us dance around our room like that, and we are ready for more. “Bassically” is out now on Mermaid Ave / Double Denim.

Heavy new jam from Joel Ford, with vocals from Ejecta. Taken from Ford’s forthcoming solo record Fugitive, out next year on Driftless [via].

Way With Silence” is the dreamily downcast new single from Canadian experimental pop duo Vogue Dots, taken from the group’s stellar new Mauka EP — which also features their CSCN single “Way Out” — due October 21 on Indica. Almost feels like a throbbing, significantly more danceable Beach House jam, until the duo takes a darker and more intense turn near the end.

Yumi Zouma came out of nowhere early this year with an EP of softly shimmering, twilit dream-disco that was so pitch-perfect (right down to the cover art; some might even suggest it was ‘custom-built‘ for us) that it almost felt like it was destined to be a fluke, a debut that was surely the result of some kind of serendipitous long-distance magic that a young group has trouble ever recapturing. We are psyched to report, however, that this is not the case: the band’s gorgeous, sentimental new single “Alena” is the most disco thing the Yumis have ever done, and by the time singer Kim Pflaum hits that swooning, bittersweet refrain — “Come over here and dance with me / it’s true that you will never see me feel better” — it also feels like their shining/defining pop moment. Yumi Zouma’s Alena single is out today on Cascine.

YZ goes on tour later this month with their fellow New Zealander Lorde, followed by an appearance at Iceland Airwaves + a few U.S. shows in November. Check all of their dates after the jump…
