premiere: Mind Bath – Bad Timing

Mind Bath - Bad Timing (3)

A couple months back we posted up a "floating, intoxicatingly languid" breakup jam from Montreal artist June Moon, aka Forever, who makes up half of tropical house/paradise party duo Cafe Lanai. Not to be outdone, her bandmate in the group also makes sensual, intensely yearning slow-jams as Mind Bath, and will release his proper debut single this week on Cascine's singles imprint CSCN...

download an entrancing new mixtape from Canadian duo You’ll Never Get To Heaven

YOULL NEVER GET TO HEAVEN

A few weeks late on this one, but this dreamily melancholy new mixtape from London, Ontario, duo You'll Never Get To Heaven has become our soothing, go-to late-night jam over the last couple of evenings. The group says the mix is made up of "moody, minimal and ambient selections, international in scope, mostly circa late 70s-mid 80s". The highlight though: they've also slipped a track from their forthcoming new LP (the follow-up to one of our favorite records of 2014) into the mix, and it's lovely. Download the mixtape below:

listen to Cindy Lee’s very dark and heartbreaking new album Act of Tenderness

CINDY LEE

Cindy Lee is the experimental no wave / blues / trans-pop project from former Women (and more recently, Androgynous Mind) guitarist/singer Patrick Flegel. "Power and Possession" is taken from the group's intensely dark and cathartic new album Act of Tenderness, an eerie fever dream of fleeting, utterly heartbreaking classic girl-group melodies, sometimes obscured by abrasive noise and buried under a heavy layer of murk, casting a palpable, unshakeable gloom over the whole thing...
