Magdalena Bay – Venice

Venice Art

LA duo Magdalena Bay follow up the hottest 12 minutes of the summer with a shimmering, apocalyptic summer bop that's easily one of our favorite tracks of 2019. Mag Bay's proper new single "Venice", officially out today on Luminelle, is the duo's way of "coping with the ever-increasing ways that the world may end", and it's an absolutely glorious way to go out when global warming finally gets us all or the Russians burn this shit to the ground, whichever comes first...

Hana once again illustrates why she's one of the most endearingly cynical humans we know on the detached but eminently danceable new jam "At the Party", which Vulture has already properly dubbed an "evocapop anthem"...

MUNYA follows up her stellar and eminently charming EP compilation from earlier this spring, as she ushers in a welcome summer breeze with her lovely new single "Dove". Josie wrote the warmly lilting gem for a mama dove that was nesting just outside her window, and it's a sweet serenade of classic French-language pop bathed in MUNYA's signature, dreamy soft-psych vibes...

Lisel – Vanity

LISEL

Lisel shares the third track from her glorious debut LP Angels on the Slope, coming July 26th on Luminelle. In speaking with Billboard, who premiered the track this morning, Lisel expands on the song's concept, and the idea that, "somehow we have space inside our heads to swing back and forth from immobilizing self-doubt and uncertainty to a starry-eyed self-indulgence that allows us to think we’re magical and special, that maybe we could be the one to make something beautiful, majestic...

Montreal’s Bodywash sign to Luminelle, release new song “Eye to Eye”

BODYWASH

We're beyond psyched and proud to announce the signing of Montreal band Bodywash, the project of songwriters Rosie Long Decter + Chris Steward, to Luminelle Recordings. The group's beautiful debut full-length, on the horizon for later this year, is one of the most elegantly dreamy and intoxicating albums we've heard in quite some time, a timeless but undeniably modern union of swelling and emotionally moving dream-pop, indie rock, and shoegaze buoyed by exquisitely shimmery electronic elements, recalling everything from You Forgot It In People and vintage Souvlaki-era Slowdive to classic '90s IDM and trip-hop...
