Nina Sky | Stoners (feat. Smoke Dza)

Nina Sky (aka the duo of Natalie & Nicole Albino) posted a track called “Stoners” featuring New York’s Smoke DZA with this rap interlude: “Got so high, bit a cloud … / I live my life / Got stoned / Fuck around and missed my flight … / Shit happens, I’m a stoner / Purell on my hands / Trying to cover the aroma.” Not to be outdone, the ladies offer a fun, addictive chorus: “We don’t gotta be no stoners to take a trip like this / You keep me higher than a spaceship flyin’.” Follow Nina Sky on facebookYou can also follow the pair at their official blog here. – David D. Robbins Jr.

Evy Jane | Closer

Vancouver’s Evelyn Mason and Jeremiah Klein (aka Evy Jane) are back with a beautiful, new, downtempo track called “Closer”. It’s the first music I’ve heard from the duo since “Sayso” in 2012 and a video posted by Yours Truly, in the same year, for song called “Nothing So Great”.  Evy Jane has always been what I like to call a low-light affair — music saturated with purple-hued moods, hours spent during the late night, and a soulful sensuality to last. — David D. Robbins Jr.

Zoo Brother | Gemini Girl

Zoo Brother is the dream-pop solo project of Chicagoan William Karmis, with some additional help of friends, Akeem Asani, Ahmad Asani and Michael Aurelius. Karmis is currently streaming a slick record six-song record, “Gemini Girl EP” via bandcamp. It’s a sweet record to listen to, comfortable in its own skin, dealing with relationships, disappointments, being lovelorn – all with a musical bedroom sensibility and a lyrical honesty. You can follow Zoo Brother at facebook– David D. Robbins Jr.

Timber Timbre | Curtains!? (feat. Fiver)

Okay, how in the hell did I miss a new Timber Timbre record release this month!? The spooky Ontario folk outfit, featuring brilliant lead singer Taylor Kirk, released a 10-track album, “Hot Dreams”, on April first via Arts and Crafts. It’s the follow-up to the Polaris Music Prize short-listed “Creep On Creepin’ On” (2011). Since the release, Timber Timbre is sharing an alternate version of “Curtains!?”, featuring the dark, deep vocals of Fiver, solo project of Toronto singer-songwriter Simone Schmidt, also known for fronting The Highest Order. The song is sinister sounding, and I can hear hints of a 70s-porno kind of sensual aesthetic:Picture me a magazine / Empty the night / No there isn’t much redeeming / About this dawn and breaking light.”  – David D. Robbins Jr.

Gold-Bears | For You

Who doesn’t understand the soul-crushing feeling of regret? The Gold-Bears’ promo copy for the Atlanta band’s second full-length, “Dalliance”, describes the record as a series of regrettable incidents, like lying to a friend, the terrible thing you say to someone before thinking it out. The first single, “For You”, certainly fit into the category, but the music is propulsive, immediate and anthemic: “And I wrote the truth / You read it one last time / And I have the proof / For the rest of our goddamned lives.” You can follow Gold-Bears at facebook and bandcamp. Note: All lyrics are unofficial. You can get the album via Slumberland Records. It’s out on June 3rd.  – David D. Robbins Jr.

Hundred Waters | Xtalk

Really enjoying this early stream of the Hundred Waters track, “Xtalk”, from off the quartet’s upcoming May 27th release, “The Moon Rang Like a Bell”, out via OWSLA. It’s a soulful song, with thumping club percussion, and sweetly arranged vocal harmonies. Follow the band at facebook and twitter– David D. Robbins Jr.
