GvsB MODERN YACHT ROCK 2019

Presenting the fourth annual installment in our series of modern yacht rock summer mixtapes: this year's mix was loosely inspired and guided by Light in the Attic's absurdly dope Pacific Breeze compilation of late '70s and early '80s Japanese City Pop that dropped this spring, which the label says lands in some nebulous zone encompassing "easy listening with mutant exotica, tilted techno-pop, and steamy boogie bubbling beneath the gloss"...

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...

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...
