Incan Abraham – Tuolumne

Los Angeles quartet Incan Abraham have shared their swooning new single, Tuolumne. The track will appear on the group’s forthcoming new full-length, yet to be given a release date.
Tuolumne is warm and undeniably catchy indie-pop number, that sounds a little like a Grizzly Bear tune if they were fronted by Taylor Rice of Local Natives. The melody is just lovely too, don’t you think?

Twin Shadow – Old Love / New Love

Twin Shadow’s George Lewis Jr. has completely taken me by surprise with his new track, Old Love / New Love. The song was recorded for Grand Theft Auto V, which is out next week and also features new music by Tyler, The Creator and Flying Lotus.
Old Love / New Love is a killer track thats built around an infectious house inspired beat and Twin Shadow’s crooning vocals. I wasn’t so sure at first, but damn this is brilliant!

Phantogram – Black Out Days

New York electro-pop duo Phantogram are gearing up to release their second full-length album later this year. Sarah Barthel and Joshua Carter just let loose the albums’ addictive lead single, Black Out Days.
Phantogram really are such a solid band, and Black Out Days is an instantly catchy tune. The song is full of glitchy synths, vocal loops and elements of psych-pop, but it’s Barthel’s gorgeous vocals that take centre stage. Stay tuned for more updates about their new record.

Blood Orange – Chamakay

Dev Hynes has shared the lead single from the forthcoming new Blood Orange album, Cupid Deluxe. It’s an absolutely exquisite track, called Chamakay, and it features guest vocals from Chairlift’s Caroline Polachek. The accompanying video was directed by Kindness‘ Adam Bainbridge, and was shot in Georgetown, Guyana.

Cupid Deluxe is slated for a late 2013 release. Check out the visuals below.

Jungle – The Heat

For a band I know almost nothing about, Jungle really do have a knack for dropping exceptionally funky tunes. Their fantastic debut single Platoon, which they dropped back in June, made an instant fan out of me and I loved their second single Drops too.
The London-duo’s latest offering is called The Heat, and along with elements of jazz and funk, there’s also shades of TV on the Radio as well. It’s yet another smooth and effortlessly catchy release. Check it out.

The single is released through Chess Club Records next month.
