Here’s a moving new jam from Nicole Schneit, aka Air Waves, taken from her beautiful, long-awaited forthcoming full-length Parting Glances. In the past, we’ve used phrases like “casually poignant” and “world-weary” when describing Schneit’s lovely way with melody, her familiar, worn-in voice, and her often subtly heartbreaking turns of phrase, and that all certainly applies on the hopefully melancholy “Milky Way“, one of the album’s standout tracks. Parting Glances, which was recorded with Jarvis Taveniere of Woods and features vocals from Jana Hunter on two tracks, is out September 18 on Western Vinyl.

Nico Jaar follows up the release of Nymphs II + the generous free release of his early 2015 LP/film soundtrack Pomegranates with his new Nymphs III 12″. Listen to both sides — “Swim” + “Mistress” — below or here.

This one was a last-minute entry on our records of the year (SO FAR) list, from a mysterious artist named Domenique Dumont. Even Domenique’s own label, the Paris-based Antinote Recordings, claims to know nothing about the artist (please), but he/she has created a blissful, dreamily aquatic world via an elegant collision of dub, tropicalia, chillwave, ye-ye, bossa nova, techno, balearic, and every other genre/vibe you could possibly need for the beach. The poppier vocal tracks “Comme Ça” + “L’Esprit de l’Escalier” are the obvious standouts, but repeat listens of jams like “La Bataille de Neige” + “Le Château de Corail” reveal a deeper, insanely pleasant, spaced-out surf-dub trip. Comme Ça is out now; listen to the record in its entirety below:

The legend Pete Rock lends his golden touch on a nice and subtle hip-hop re-working of one of the best tracks of the year. This one will appear on the PBVSGR Remixes EP, along with the previously released Danny L Harle + Andy Stott remixes and more, out next week. In related news, check PB’s own new “remix”/beautifully warped version of Eric Copeland’s “Cheap Trickhere.

Former Pipettes front-woman Gwenno remixes the title track from one of our favorite records of the year so far, transforming Stealing Sheep‘s infectiously off-kilter pop gem “Not Real” into a chugging, hypnotically disorienting electro-kraut-pop jam. Gwenno’s own excellent LP Y DYDD OLAF, originally released late last year, will be reissued on July 24 by Heavenly Recordings.

Toronto duo Josh McIntyre + Talvi Faustmann — aka Prince Innocence — made a very vibey new mix for SSENSE, featuring tracks from Dean Blunt, Kingdom (with a warped edit of “No Type“), Babe Rainbow, Josh’s other project Healings + more, and the duo even kicked the mix off with their own new/unreleased single “Manic“. Listen below + check the whole tracklist here, and come see Prince Innocence here in TX at GvsB V this summer in Dallas + Austin (the Austin show is sold out):
