download Kedr Livanskiy’s “No More Summer Rain”

KEDR NO MORE SUMMER RAIN

As we've mentioned repeatedly here and on our radio show, January Sun, the stellar debut 12" release from Russian producer/singer Yana Kedrina -- aka Kedr Livanskiy -- currently sits in rare company with Oh No, untitled unmastered., and Lemonade as one of the best records of 2016. And while the entrancing, beautifully lo-fi "No More Summer Rain" doesn't actually appear on the record, it was one of the first things we ever heard from Kedrina (via this charming video on her youtube channel), and it might be the most uplifting and hopefully nostalgic track in her oeuvre.

video: Patience – The Church

PATIENCE SLEEVE FINAL

Patience is the new solo synth-pop project of Roxanne Clifford, the former frontwoman of beloved London indie-pop group Veronica Falls. The gorgeous lead single and a-side from her debut 7" is a wistfully bittersweet dance-floor anthem that possesses all of the heart and nostalgic/romantic melodic sensibility that made her previous work so great, but this one radiates an icy, softly shimmering italo-disco sheen that will appeal to fans of her Night School labelmate Molly Nilsson, Sally Shapiro, and the Italians Do It Better roster...

premiere: Lil Silva – Lines

LilSilvaArtwork

Prolific UK producer (and Banks collaborator) Lil Silva shares the arresting lead single from his excellent forthcoming EP, out this spring via London label Good Years. The buzzing, glowing late-night club jam "Lines" starts off low-key enough, with Silva's own haunting disembodied vocal sample floating over the ethereal track in a way that recalls some of James Blake's earlier, most skeletal work...

premiere: download Peaking Lights’ radiant new disco jam “Conga Blue”

CONGA BLUE

LA duo Peaking Lights usher in spring with a glorious new psych-disco jammer: the balmy, epically grooving "Conga Blue" beams with the kind of feel-good tropical/cosmic vibes that the group always does so well, and will see a proper 12" vinyl release this summer (complete with instrumental and a bonus b-side track) as part of a series of singles and 12"s that the duo will be releasing over the next few months via their own Two Flowers label...
