Tei Shi – ‘Justify’

From Valerie Teicher’s Friday album release Crawl Space is a minimally-lit bass and vocal track that swings with R&B and electronic verve AND sounds like Prince.

As Teicher says “Justify is a kind of protest song against the way in which we are categorized or judged by others based off of very superficial or one dimensional standards. It came from a place of rebellion against the insecurities and pressures that come into play when you put yourself in a position to be defined by another. For me the song is a challenge against that musically and emotionally.”

Aldous Harding feat. Perfume Genius – ‘Imagining My Man’

Like the previously featured ‘Horizon’ from the New Zealand singer-songwriter, ‘Imagining My Man’ from her 4AD debut John Parish-produced Party (Mat 17th) is a subtle and intense torch song and features Perfume Genius’s Mike Hadreas (even subtler). Angel Olsen and Julia Holter would be close references to the sound made here. Aldous Harding is increasingly sounding like a trailblazing artist.


3.

Search Party Animal – ‘Evergreen’

The band formerly known as Bagels, have made a significant move up with their new single under new name Search Party Animal. It’s still very early days but this is a step in a direction that marks them apart.


4.

Wastee – ‘Candy’

Diolmhain Ingram Roche has been making a name for himself as Wastefellow but Wastee is a more club-orientated sound that draws from drum and bass, post-dub and synth electronica. ‘Candy’ is the project’s first single, a wavey squiggly song of deep bass proportions and digital styles. An EP is coming on the LyxLiv label.


5.

All We Are – ‘Burn It All Out’

All We Are’s debut album for Domino brought an Irishman, a Norwegian and a Brazilian together to make slinky harmony-filled guitar pop music. ‘Burn It All Out’ is a departure from that sound, a more intense and layered suggestion that album #2 is going to be quite different despite the sweetness inherent on the song. it features production by Kwes.


6.

Soulwax – ‘Is It Always Binary’

I’m a sucker for dry disco drums and not many people do that better (other than close cohorts DFA) than Soulwax. From DeeWee is their new album all recorded in one-take in their Belgian studio and ‘Is It All Binary’ features the work of two drummers including Iggor Cavalera and features the Soulwax the headspinning synth trademark like their brilliant release Nite Versions.


7.

Cinema feat. Chris Leech – ‘Floating’

Kildare producer Peter Fleming aka Cinema released an under the radar electronic album A Night Train To Budapest last year that was bright, Balearic and luminescent.

‘Floating’ is his first new song since all that activity and it’s a natural departure from the LP. Featuring vocals from Le Boom’s Christy Leech and production by Ruairi Bantum, ‘Floating’ has a focused electronic sound that sounds more contemporary but hasn’t lost that spacious disco chug that makes the music under the Cinema moniker swing.
