Holy Ghost! – Okay

On September 10, Holy Ghost! will release their eagerly-awaited new album Dynamics through DFA Records. Having already shared Dumb Disco Ideas and the James Murphy-produced Teenagers In Heat, the New York electronic duo just let loose the albums opening track, Okay.
Okay is another extremely catchy and well put together dance track by Nick Millhiser and Alex Frankel.
It’s as simple as this, there’s a lot of electronic-dance artists out there at the moment, but few are making music that sound this good. Dynamics is shaping up to be one of the albums of the year.

Pre-order Dynamics here. Take a listen to Okay below.

Glasser – Shape

Cameron Mesirow, aka Glasser, has shared the gorgeous opening track from her forthcoming new record. The almost Björk-esque Shape, is a stunning and powerful track built around a truly beautiful vocal performance by Mesirow and captivating array of ethereal synths.

Glasser’s as of yet untitled new album is slated for an October release on True Panther.

Read some words from Mesirow below.

I have been thinking a lot about space. Not only outer space and physical boundaries, but also inner mental space. There are so many beginnings and endings and edges and shores inside and outside our minds. Some are impossible to scale and they make us feel small. I feel small and far removed at times, and I push myself farther away in a kind of compulsion. These are physical comforts I cling to, but always when I cling to them I realize that the isolation I’m afraid of is in my heart and not on a crowded sidewalk. I also have moments of ecstasy, milestones that drive me forward in search of more. These emotions and sensations elude me though, they seem to exist in their own seperate planes. I still chase them. I can become so mesmerized by something outside myself, a person or place that I try to reflect its power and the way it makes me feel.

This is why I feel so lucky to be able to make art, especially music. My experiences flow together and become the stuff of invention. I spent the last year and a half making my new album, which will come out in October. I thought about architecture, a physical imposition in my life, and the fluid emotional boundaries of relationships, also sometimes imposed.

More news to come, in the meantime, enjoy “SHAPE”

Gambles – So I Cry Out

After sharing the exceptionally powerful Far From Your Arms, way back in April, Gambles has returned with yet another painstakingly honest and heart-wrenching track called So I Cry Out.
This is first song to be shared from his forthcoming debut full-length LP, Trust, which is slated for a September 30 release through his own GMBLS imprint on Secretly 

Take a listen to So I Cry Out, but be warned, it’s a rather sad tale.

Janelle Monáe & Miguel – Primetime

Two of the most exciting and innovative R&B musicians on the planet, Janelle Monáe and Miguel, team up on the latest track to be shared from Monáe’s forthcoming sophomore effort, The Electric Lady.
I was expecting a more of an energetic affair, which wouldn’t be unfamiliar territory for either artist, but instead got the slow-burning and romantic Primetime. Take a listen to the tune below, it sounds great.

The Electric Lady, which will also feature Prince and Solange, will be released September 9. Pre-order it here.
