Oslo's Das Body level up on their cathartic new single, officially dropping tomorrow on Luminelle. Das Body hooked up with the great Jorge Elbrecht on this one -- Elbrecht will also co-produce the band's debut LP, coming in early 2020 -- and that inspired collab is proving to be a magical one so far, as "Against the Glass" comes pretty damn close to capturing Ellie Linden and her band's stratospheric live presence (if you know you know), resulting in the biggest and most anthemic jam the band has released to date...

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...

Queens-based trio Couch Prints make their alluring debut with "Tell U", a balmy, softly glowing track that drips with yearning and smoldering emotion. According to the band, the song came together after a series of big moves -- Denver to France and back, a serendipitous meeting in Paris with singer Jayanna that set things in motion, with everyone ultimately ending up in New York -- and is a reflection of "that feeling of transience and movement and leaving the past behind; whether that’s moving homes or ending a relationship or just changing yourself day by day...

NV – Binasu

Binasu

Thanks to Adam for the heads up on Russian experimental pop luminary Kate Shilonosova, aka NV, and her entrancing and addictive new album Binasu. The adventurous, genre-defying record is teeming with otherworldly, '80s Japanese new wave-indebted pop vibes, and with songs like the very kawaii "Kata" and the twinkling title track recalling the bright playfulness of some of Miharu Koshi's more out-there stuff, it's quickly become one of our favorite underground gems of 2016 so far...
