Hear Shy Girls’ ‘All For Show’ produced by Jono Ma from Jagwar Ma

Shy Girls- All for Show (produced by Jono Ma)

Aussie band Jagwar Ma‘s debut, Howlin’, last year may have not exactly screamed RnB but Jono Ma does a valiant job at producing this future RnB gem by Shy Girls. Hailing from Portland, Shy Girls is producer and vocalist, Dan Vidmar. This track, All For Show, was premiered by Red Bull Sound Select and it’s bass-driven yet smooth cut. Vidmar’s voice is smooth and layered seeing him sit somewhere between MNEK and inc. If his voice sounds familiar it’s probably because you heard it on Cyril Hahn’s Perfect Form last year.

FKA-Twigs-Fader-02

Hear FKA Twigs’ ‘Pendulum’, her favourite song from her album

FKA Twigs has dropped the second taste, Pendulum, from her debut album, LP1. Premiered by Zane Lowe, Twigs describes it as one of her favourite tracks off the album and it’s easy to see why. As the title suggests it’s a gently undulating track pushed by sporadic beats and vocal coos. She has a knack for finding melody in the most innovative of spaces. Can we just leave the best album of the year slot open for this London singer now? We’ll get to see if the album is as good as presumed when it’s released on 8 August.

Azealia Banks returns with ‘Heavy Metal and Reflective’, her first track since splitting with Universal

Heavy Metal And Reflective - Azealia Banks

It may surprise you but people are still talking about Azealia Banks. Maybe it’s because 212 still plays at least twice every night or maybe it’s because she still continues to generate headlines with her erratic behaviour. The latest thing to grab the media’s attention was her split with record label Universal after she asked them to drop her via twitter. Heavy Metal and Reflective has just dropped and it’s an industrial and bold track which is actually one of her better tracks. Her voice is slightly reserved yet you can tell that she just wants to unleash The fact she doesn’t shows that she may have learnt something. Less is always more.

Swedish/Australian duo Kate Boy unleash ‘Self Control’

Self Control

Stockholm-based trip, Kate Boy (whose lead-singer Kate Akhurst is Australian) released the bombastic, Northern Lights in the middle of last year and then virtually left us for an entire year. It was cruel but we’ll forgive them because today they have dropped Self Control from their forthcoming debut album. It’s a bass-driven pop track with a funky chorus that harks back to Janet Jackson‘s Nasty days. Swedish pop never fails to disappoint and with Australia a musical cultivation ground at the moment, it make total sense that this trio would be churning out such gold.

Take a candy-filled trip with SOPHIE’s ‘Lemonade’

SOPHIE - LEMONADE (FORTHCOMING ON NUMBERS)

Enigmatic British producer, SOPHIE, has released a new track, Lemonade and it’s total ear candy. Following last year’s brilliant, Bipp, Lemonade come from a 7″ single that also includes another new track, Hard. Like her past endeavours, the track is a mind-bending, genre-warping musical expedition. It bubbles and cascades with crystalline clarity before escalating into a pop hook. It’s sugary sweet, weird as shit and likely to take you a little time to come around to. Give SOPHIE that time and she/he will reward in droves.

Shura releases sophomore track, ‘Just Once’

Shura - Just Once

I featured London newbie, Shura‘s debut track Touch in my individual top 10 songs of the year so far and so I am suitably excited about the follow-up, Just Once. There is still no mention of an album or an EP just yet but Just Once is another ethereal piece of RnB/pop. “We could get lost”, she sings over an atmospheric instrumental, with whispy vocals that make you believe you could do just that. Shura is so subtle with all the instruments she uses, from barely-there synths to soft guitar plucks, yet together they come together to form a masterpiece. Two great songs makes Shura seriously hot property now.

Hudson Mohawke unleashes the mighty ‘Chimes’

Hudson Mohawke - Chimes (Official)

Hudson Mohawke has followed in the footsteps of his fellow TNGHT counterpart, Lunice, and released a new solo track. Chimes is the first track to be lifted from his forthcoming EP of the same name which is due out 29 September. It’s easy to tell where TNGHT gets it’s grunt from listening to Chimes. While Lunice’s Can’t Wait To was a little more subtle, Chimes is a mongrel of a track built around huge brass-filled drops and shattering bass. A drop like this would have easily fitted into Kanye‘s Yeezus on which the Hudson Mohawke-produced, Blood On The Leaves, featured.

SBTRKT announces new album, streams ‘New Dorp. New York’ featuring Ezra Koenig

SBTRKT Wonder Where We Land

For those who were concerned that Temporary View with Sampha was too same ol’, prepare to have those concerns dashed. Lifted from his forthcoming album, Wonder Where We Land, New Dorp. New York is an oddball, schizophrenic track featuring New Yorker, Ezra Koenig from Vampire Weekend. At points it sounds like deep house, at other stages it sounds like Vampire Weekend and in other places there are industrial references to Yeezus. It’s sure to divide listeners, but there is no doubt that it’s a bold way to introduce a sophomore album that, by the way, has a brilliant cover (above).

Flume reworks Seekae’s ‘Test & Recognise’

flume_seekae_test_and_recognise

Flume has put his midas touch on yet another already-killer song, this time turning Seekae‘s Test & Recognise into gold. It’s still as hauntingly alluring as the original- just slightly tweaked to make it a little more club-ready. Listen below:

Kimbra brings the funk on new track ‘Miracle’

kimbra-the-golden-echo

Kimbra may have divided just about everybody on her eclectic first single, ’90s Music but her new track Miracle is bound to get the doubters back on board. Kicking off with the lyric “I’m rising up” the song sends positive vibes through way of funky bass and airy vocals. The 5-minute affair is about as joyous as they come with a chorus almost reminiscent of Whoopi Goldberg in Sister Act.

Her second album, The Golden Echo, is due on 15 August and will feature Miracle alongside the previously released, ’90s Music, Nobody But You and Love in High Places. Here’s what we know about the album so far.
