Lemonade – Perfect Blue

Fresh off of the release of their brilliant 2012 LP Diver, Brooklyn dance-pop trio Lemonade return this week with a new jam, called Perfect Blue. Lemonade are picking up right where they left off with their previous record, but add some really smooth late night vibes to create another very listenable track that’s perfect for the summer. That drum machine and those pulsating drones are doing a lot for me right now. Fans of Small Black, Teen Daze and Delorean should really dig this one.

Keep Shelly In Athens – Madmen Love

Last year Sarah P collaborated with The New Division on their stunning single Night Escape and her vocals on that track literally blew me away. This morning I discovered the news that her band, Keep Shelly In Athens, will finally release their debut LP this July through Cascine Records. Their latest single Madmen Love sees the band displaying their darker side. Starting off rather ominously with some distorted instrumentals before Sarah P’s familiar vocals take command, it’s another stellar release by a really consistent band.

The Athens-based duo have already released two excellent EP’s that are worth checking out if you haven’t already.

World’s Most – Big Ideas

World’s Most is Matthew Müller, Matthew Müller is World’s Most.”

California native Matthew Müller, who describes his music as Indie, Pop, Dreamy, Shoegaze, Sunshine, has a real diamond of a track out called ‘Big Ideas’. I downloaded the track from his Bandcamp page about an hour ago and I’ve had it on repeat since. Smooth vocals, great pop hooks and clever songwriting. It’s just a really, really brilliant song.

Dream Koala – Ocean

Paris-based 18 year old Dream Koala recently made a few waves by playing the London Boiler Room with Flume, and he’s now dropped a new tune called ‘Ocean’. It’s a dreamy and melodic track with some really hypnotic vocal arrangements. Very promising stuff. Stream and download below.
