LOVECAT - “Song For Eternity” (audio) (premiere)

“Song For Eternity” is a playful, bouncy synthpop piece, a strange choice given that its subject matter is the eternally masochistic struggle to make good art.


Robert Finley - “You Make Me Want To Dance” (audio) (premiere)

“You Make Me Want to Dance” is a slab of dirty, sexy soul, gyrating around a firm funk backbeat in much the same way as most pairs of hips exposed to this song might.


Ian Ridenhour - “Monsters” (video) (premiere)

There is a certain melodic flair to Ian Ridenhour’s music that comes across as very pop-sensible, but without sacrificing any of the darkly, sometimes Burtonesque gloom of his overall musical persona.


Darkher - “Moths” (audio) (premiere)

"Moths" starts pitched downwards and slides even further, gothic folk that plunges headlong into doom territory.


Broods - “Heartlines” (Singles Going Steady)

Broods may not be the most distinctive dance-rock architects in the contemporary arena, but they know how to engineer an unimpeachable synthpop anthem.


Rihanna - “Goodnight Gotham” (Singles Going Steady)

The video has Rihanna turns celebrity on its head here and makes her fans the stars.


Starover Blue - ‘Spacegeist’ (album stream) (premiere)

Beat the summer heat by putting on this album — the temperature’s guaranteed to drop ten degrees while it’s pulsing from your speakers.


Josh Farrow - “Who’s Gonna Love You When I’m Gone” (audio) (premiere)

“Who’s Gonna Love You When I’m Gone” carries itself with an aura of impermeable coolness, suave organ and killer bassline as smooth as silk.


PIG - “The Diamond Sinners” (video) (premiere)

“The Diamond Sinners” is exactly what you might expect from a man who’s been making industrial for thirty years — and that’s a very good thing.


Low Culture - “Comfort Zones” (audio) (premiere)

Low Culture’s garage-punk is about as straight-ahead as you could hope for.
