A new track drops from the brotherly, British electronic music duo Disclosure. They’ve had some incredibly hot singles this year that have some clear influences coming from the worlds of R&B and 90s dance-pop.
However, as Stereogum points out, this new cut functions on a much funkier premise, which I like quite a bit. It’s actually got me looking forward to the duo’s new full-length album a bit more, Settle. Tracks like “When A Fire Starts To Burn,” will undoubtedly add some great variety to the poppier tracks on this forthcoming album. Look for it at the beginning of June via PMR.
Two bouncy, colorful house tracks from Airbird & Napolian streaming via the widget above, and they’ve got a pretty warped and wonky vibe to ‘em. Moments on “In The Zone” give off some pretty nostalgic and chillwave-esque vibes, but I think you’ll find “Special” to be much more driving and infectious.
According to Cascine Records, these guys should be dropping a collaborative full-length this winter! Enjoy!
Via the widget above, stream the title track from the latest Jaw Jam EP, The Truth, which takes a pretty scattered, experimental approach to a lot of recent sounds coming out of future garage and UK bass music. The vocal edits on this 4-minute monster are incredibly infectious, and let’s not neglect to mention the interjecting synths that have a pretty playful bounce to them I find really appealing. Finally, the beat itself is a lesson in detail, dynamics, and layers. I just wish it went on longer! Enjoy!
Singer-songwriter Har Mar Superstar–a.k.a. Sean Tillmann, Sean Na Na–is a dude that’s difficult to put into works. While he’s not the only musical revivalist working in the industry today. he’s certainly more convincing than your average neo-new waver thanks to his passionate voice and full embrace of the stylistic kitsch that came with the soul, funk, and disco movement of the 60s and 70s. While his passion for this era is clear, he also seems to be fully aware of how preposterous “reviving” a style of music can be. He’s certainly gotten his yucks on numerous album and single covers he’s fronted his music with over the years, but songwriting seems to be a pretty serious, focused effort for Har Mar. The bright horns, key change, and passionate verses on “Lady, You Shot Me” certainly feel an exercise in sincerity and love for the sounds of soul. Even though being born in modern times has essentially kept him from being a part of soul, soul is clearly a part of him. Enjoy!
Har Mar Superstar’s new album, Bye Bye 17, is out now on Cult Records.
Honestly, True Romance didn’t offer me much that felt romantic or true. Aside from a few well-written and produced singles, this album mostly dishes out cookie cutter electropop with very little flare.
