Interview: SALES

Coming from Orlando, Florida, SALES, is the bare bones, indie rock duo of Lauren Morgan and Jordan Shih. The long – time friends and collaborators have gained quite a following in a short amount of time through a collection of infectiously catchy singles that sound very unique but are still full of personality, inviting, and warm to the listeners ears.…

Skye Chai – “Show Me”

UK producer Skye Chai is at it again with a brand new track, “Show Me”. The track is filled with exploding synths, layered well into a pulsing beat, that catches you off guard and reels you in. The song breaks for a moment, before overwhelming the listener in electronic bliss once again. This catchy tune is one you don’t want to…

HONNE – “All in the Value”

It’s just been a second, but London-based duo HONNE returns with their newest “All in the Value”. In just an unbelievably short amount of time, the duo have made a name for themselves and they’re hard to miss. Masters of their craft (which we argue, is soulful yearning), the duo never seems to let up on writing and producing incredibly…

Sam Padrul – “Offbeat”

Chicago based producer Sam Padrul‘s “Offbeat” is anything but. The funky-pop tune blends groovy bass and pulse-inducing synthesizers to create a jamming, sensuous track begging to be jived to. Grab your partner and break out those moves on the dance floor; just make sure you’re not offbeat. Stream the song below and make sure to download “Offbeat” for free at Sam Padrul’s…

Yumi Zouma – “Alena”

Yumi Zouma‘s brief career has been nothing short of illustrious thus far. The New Zealand trio released their self-titled EP via Cascine this past February, with stunning critique given to their hazy, subdued approach to dance music and in particular with their single, “The Brae.” As they get ready to support Lorde on a string of her homecoming tour dates,…

The Tigers From Niger – “About Me/Rollerblades”

Hawaii based trio The Tigers From Niger released their single “About Me/Rollerblades” off of the group’s upcoming Same Place, Same Time EP. The atmospheric track incorporates singer Kaylee’s crooning vocals and electrifying synthesizers, combining the two into a winning recipe. “About Me” starkly contrasts their earlier work, which was lively and exuberant, sometimes teetering on the edge of satirical rap. But…

Sister Crystals – “Obsidian”

Deep within the belly of Chicago, Sister Crystals brood underground psych-pop, marginalized by a city with staggering A-list natives. Sister Crystals is anything, but dormant. Their most recent release, “Obsidian,” takes it name after a similarly hot, sleek type of volcanic glass. The tune opens with way-off drum machine and a gorgeously mechanized guitar riff. but the song quickly erupted…

Les Sins – “Why (Ft. Nate Salman)”

Les Sins is the groovy dance-inducing side project of Toro y Moi‘s Chaz Bundick. His newest single “Why” is a funky congo drum thumping, get-up-and-get-jiggy-with-it tune that’s impossible to resist. Nate Salman offers smooth vocals to the already fluid, flowing, pulsating track, creating a rich and auditory pleasing product. Les Sins will be on tour and their upcoming debut album Michael from Company…

Chris McClenney – “Best You Got”

Chris McClenney is a versatile producer, to say the least.  A detailed examination of the 20 year-old Baltimore native’s Soundcloud page yields an artist equally adept at stripped-down piano ballads and jazzy, electro-funk jams.  Lately, however, McClenney has been flexing a budding house music muscle, first with last month’s “Mine” and now with “Best You Got.”  Predicated on a simple, panning…

Mini Dresses – “THREE” EP

Following the outfit’s brilliant past releases, Austin-based Mini Dresses is back with their most recent release, THREE, a super saturated, mystical EP that captured my attention at first spin. The opening track, “In Two,” centers around a jangly, modulative, simple guitar hook that’s cut in by powerful, cooing vocals and driving drum beats. Mini Dresses’s are masters of easy-going, woozy choruses that…
