Skogursson - "Morning Be Good"

Skogursson brings us beautiful ethereal and progressive melodies in his new track “Morning Be Good”. The song is an intriguing electronic composition that for moments reminds us to Tycho and Bonobo but maintaining a pretty unique personality and versatility. Jacob Skógursson is a musician and an architect based in Reykjavík, who combines both of these passions in his compositions....

PRIYYA - "Golden Child"

~ You’re an expat in a faraway land, lonely and thirsty… You’re walking down dark streets when you stumble upon a small red wooden door wedged into a mountainside. You step in, layers of hanging silk brush your face as you make your way through the entrance hallway, cigarette and incense smoke filling your lungs....

EONS - "Make up Sex"

Miami based synth-pop band is back this Valentine’s Day with their single “Make up Sex,” an electro-pop balad reminiscent to The 1975 and St. Lucia. This is the second song that the band releases featuring new singer Ariel Morer, who teamed up with founding members Johnny D. and Matty G. The song follows the lines...

Mookhi - “Foul Play ft. Billy Fox”

Mookhi’s ‘Foul Play’ is her debut release, but this is hardly noticeable given the meticulousness of its production. Created on a plane and even including sampled sounds from the flight, the layering is lush and sensuous, with a fleshy mixture of bass and ethereal elements, and rounded off with heartfelt vocals by Billy Fox. The...

SMHERTZ - “Il coraggio”

“Il Coraggio” is a wholesome fusion of soul and electronica — a lush landscape of organic textures, dreamy female vocals, and bursting rhythms that evokes the likes of early Four Tet and Bonobo. This contemporary staple of instrumentalism meets sound design is by the U.K based electronic artist SMHERTZ (Giuseppe Caiazzo) and is the first...

VOWWS shares new single “Heartbreaker”

With their new single, “Heartbreaker,” VOWWS (one of TML favorite new bands) veer into the wrong lane – and smash backwards into Pop. The new single was released earlier this week, coinciding with their North American tour in support of British post-punk band White Lies. A flash-grenade of musical justice, “Heartbreaker” opens with the layered ramblings of...

Lucky Beaches - “B.O.D”

A few listens into “B.O.D” and the lyrics emerge from a haze, revealing a dark state of mind intelligently obscured by a dragging drum beat, a wailing guitar, and echoed vocals fit for an 80’s cop movie soundtrack — hence the opening siren? “B.O.D” stands for ‘better off dead,’ by the way, and repeated exposure...

CHANCELLOR WARHOL featuring CAPPA - "Mirrors"

“Mirrors” is the first single from Chancellor Warhol’s EPUntil the Light Takes Me , and if it all holds up to the same level as this track, it promises to be very popular indeed. Produced by Super Duper, the track is a collaboration with a fellow Nashville artist Cappa, whose soothing melodies on the song’s chorus are...

Cog Nomen - "Fear Of Missing Out"

Miami’s own Cog Nomen did a double great job with this track and video for “Fear Of Missing Out”. Lots of effects on the vocals, a loopy melody and groovy drums, make for an upbeat, ambiental, trippy and overall good feeling track. This does not mean that the track is a happy go lucky number, especially...

Marie Reiter - “Yesterday”

At almost five minutes long, “Yesterday” reveals the emotional states of a love lost. The opening guitar melody and Reiter’s lovely voice introduce a song that is full of ambient layers, dubbed guitar riffs, and echoed vocals — a perfect recipe for expressing nostalgia and heartbreak. The chorus provides for epic peaks and falls, similar...

Birocratic - "Dead Cat in the Parking Lot"

Birocratic’s “Dead Cat in the Parking Lot” is a pretty good example of how to properly blend chillout, trip-hop and a touch of funk. Nostalgic and dreamy, it is the soundtrack to a real life, modern day Alice in Wonderland trip. The sound of the track is reminiscent to classics in oddity such as I...
