1.


L’rain

Two Face

‘Two Face’ opens up with a looping piano part that sounds like a Kate Bush track but the Brooklyn musician Taja Cheek aka L’Rain unfurls it into a jazzier more psychedelic arrangement.

L’Rain has an album out on Mexican Summer in June.


2.

Zoee

Microwave

Harriet Zoe Pittard is ZOEE, a new London-artist who has previously guested on Joe Goddard and PC Music tracks drops this slice of pleasing hipster indie pop which the artist says is “a many-sided song about familial dynamics, oppressive domestic settings and the joy found in self validation.”

 ZOEE’s debut album ‘Flaw Flower’ is due on June 25th via Illegal Data.

Skiifall, Knucks

Tin Tun Up Part II

Montreal and London connect on a track that buries itself deep with jazzy, R&B and rap touchstones.


4.

Sven Wunder

Impasto

I featured ‘Snowdrops’ from the Swede recently, and the followup ‘Impasto’ is another evocative and sumptuous instrumental.


5.

People Club

Damn

I think this is the first song I’ve ever heard about porn addiction. It’s from Berlin-based five-piece’s forthcoming EP Take Me Home out on May 7th.

Damn’ tackles the subject of internet pornography addiction, and how this very 21st century problem can affect people’s lives. We wanted to examine how porn addicts can actually be super high-functioning and never get ‘found out’, yet actually can suffer seriously as a result of their habit. We wanted also to capture some of the more abstract symptoms that might accompany the affliction, i.e. how it might affect one’s love life, and the security measures one might go to to avoid detection online, e.g. ‘tip-toe, incognito mode’.
