A former member of the indie rock band Ravens & Chimes, Rebecca Rossi has since formed Krystalmath, and the singer-songwriter/multi-instrumentalist feels right at home in the dance pop realm, especially on the gently pulsating new track “Say That You Love Me”, which we’re pleased to premiere today. Instead of morphing into a one-dimensional club banger, the New York musician reins in the track just enough to focus more on the voice and the hook without compromising the song’s propulsive sound.

After a five-year hiatus Atlanta band Sleep Therapy returned this past January with Dirt City Swans, the first of four new EPs planned for release. Next up is Creatures, which comes out today, and we’re happy to premiere “This is Power”, one of its four new tracks.
From the opening bars of their new single, you’d think Scavenger Hunt is an obscurity from an old John Hughes soundtrack. So immersed in the ‘80s is this Los Angeles electropop band—think the Human League and Orchestral Maneuvers in the Dark—that is comes as a genuine surprise that this music is from 2015. But there it is on Soundcloud, not on an old tape with Molly Ringwald on the cover. It’s remarkable, and something we think is worth hearing.
London-based, New York-raised singer-songwriter Micky Blue dubs her music “haunted pop” which you can hear in the melancholy strains of her music, which taps into the melancholy side of pop music. Perfectly timed for the current zeitgeist led by Lorde, Sia, and Florence Welch, the percussive, thunderous “Submarine” combines gigantic hooks with a minimal yet lavish arrangement, and its enigmatic quality is enhanced further by her new video for the track.
Rachel Mason is nothing if not ambitious. The prolific artist has worked in music, film, and sculpture, exhibiting her multimedia pieces in galleries and museums across the United States. In addition, she has ten albums to her credit, the most recent of which, The Lives of Hamilton Fish, is a 21-track rock opera inspired by two men who shared the same name but led vastly differing lives. Tapping into folk and art rock, it’s tempting to draw comparisons to both Kate Bush and Paul Giovanni’s earthy soundtrack for The Wicker Man, but this is all Mason, her persona leaving an indelible impression on the listener.
