Here’s a balmy summer night jam from LA electronic pop composer Lauren Hillman, aka Kotomi. “Swimming” has a warm, intoxicating vibe, thanks in part to Hillman’s soothing vocals and the welcome appearance of some gloriously woozy lap steel, and is the latest in a series of singles that Kotomi is releasing for free download on the first Tuesday of each month. Listen/download below, and check her soaring pop anthem “The Last Timehere.

Bully‘s Alicia Bognanno debuts the realest/rawest video of the year. “I Remember” is a blistering, intensely emotional missive, and even though Alicia’s probably performed this song 1000 times at this point, it looks like the sentiment expressed here hits a nerve every time. She holds nothing back, and by the time she’s done it feels like pure, sweet catharsis. Bully’s debut full-length Feels Like is out June 23; pre-order here.

Although they’ve released a number of label mixes that stay on blast around here, polarizing London label/collective PC Music has just released its first official compilation, featuring tracks from Hannah Diamond, Danny L Harle, GFOTY, their leader A. G. Cook + more. Listen to GFOTY’s contribution “USA” — which apparently sums up her cartoonish and not that wrong view of our nation in short order — and check the entire PC Music Volume 1 comp after the jump + download it on iTunes. In other PC Music news, Danny Sunshine dropped a giddy remix of Panda Bear‘s “Come To Your Senses“; you can check that below as well:

Tickets for this summer’s Gorilla vs. Bear V shows featuring Jamie xx, Lower Dens + more go on sale this morning at 10 AM. You can grab tickets for the Dallas show on July 31 at the Granada HERE, and the Austin show on August 1 at the Mohawk HERE.

We’re also extremely psyched to announce that Bop English (James Petralli of White Denim) has been added to the Austin show on 8/1 at the Mohawk. Bop English’s genre-defying debut LP Constant Bop is one of the most acclaimed records of the year so far, with the Independent giving it 5 stars and claiming “this is an album that restores faith in the sheer joy of music” and the Guardian declaring “it’s bliss” in their 5-star review. Listen to a couple of our favorite jams from the record on the hour-long GvsB V mix on spotify below:
