Big Grams - “Drum Machine” ft. Skrillex (Singles Going Steady)

"Drum Machine" is a manic electro-hop joy ride that tries to compact as much electric energy into one space as possible.


JPNSGRLS - “Bully For You” (audio) (premiere)

Canadian garage poppers JPNSGRLS are back with their first new song since their debut album, Circulation, back in 2014.


Deradoorian - “Your Creator” (Singles Going Steady)

Part groovy meditation on acceptance, part positive manifestation ritual over a soothing yet repetitive round-like vocal mantra, comforting keys and a sense of finding wellness within the great scheme of things.


David Bowie - “I Can’t Give Everything Away” (Singles Going Steady)

This is a mesmerizing soundscape of synths with occasional flourishes of lush guitar and sci-fi effects that recall Bowie's early character of Ziggy Stardust.


Kyle Britton - “Villain” (audio) (premiere)

Indie folk singer-songwriter Kyle Britton writes about the dark depths of the soul in a compelling and self-confessional manner.


Adult Jazz - “Eggshell” (Singles Going Steady)

It's an interesting combination: "Eggshell" is drenched in electronics, processing, Vocoders, you name it; but the song is a lovely pop tune.


Valley Hush - “Iris” (audio)

Detroit experimental popsters release cinematic tune heralding debut LP.


The Dandy Warhols - “You Are Killing Me” (Singles Going Steady)

"You Are Killing Me" is a straightforward, chomp-rock ballad that glides forward with a spry Magnetic Fields-esque melody.


Daniel Markham - “Disintegrator” (video) (premiere)

"I had a dream I wrote a song called 'Disintegrator' so I woke up and wrote a song called 'Disintegrator'" - Daniel Markham


Ital Tek - “Cobra” (Singles Going Steady)

This is a "big" sound, full of reverb and beats that make your chest vibrate. Pretty amazing.
