Self Portraits | Dead Car

Beko digital label is streaming Self Portraits’ four-track EP at bandcamp. The EP consists of pretty, romantic electro-pop with breathy male vocals, transporting lyricism, and airy synth melodies that build into warm atmospheric backdrops to fall into.  – David D. Robbins Jr.

Tobacco | Streaker (ft. Notrabel)

“… BUT IF YOU FEEL LIKE SOMEONE’S COMING!!!” Bam. That’s my favorite part of the noise assault called “Streaker”, a track off Tobacco’s upcoming release, “Ultima II Massage”. That verse follows about two minutes after the warped opening lyrics repeated in robot-voice: “Ride, ride, ride motherfucker ride.” The phrase is so elongated and distorted it can sound like the word “writhe” is being sung, which I seem to prefer, the more I listen to the song. It’s sludgy, dark, twisted and fun. It’s a fantastic cut from the Pennsylvania artist, mixing hints of trance, club beat aesthetics with Sleigh Bells’ penchant for blasting speakers into the red and My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult’s buzzy electronic weirdness. You can pre-order the record via Ghostly International. Note: Lyrics above are unofficial. — David D. Robbins Jr.

Isorbell | Inner Child

I don’t know anything about this artist or even if the name Isorbell is official or just a login name — but this track “Inner Child” is hot. It’s a low heat kinda track, slow-simmered with whispered and obscured falsetto. It’s soulful and melodic, with a touch of pitch distortion on the vocals. But the overall mood and sound is almost deliberately shy, the suppression building a thin line of sensual tension. It’s a little over two minutes of restrained beauty. – David D. Robbins Jr.

Wilsen | Magnolia


New York band, Wilsen, is streaming its latest single, “Magnolia”, the title-track from the band’s upcoming four-song EP, which is scheduled to be released on the May 18.  The style of the song is right amid the band’s general wheelhouse if you’ve heard any of their previous music. “Magnolia” is soft and confessional, with lead-singer Tamsin Wilson’s vocals coming out pretty and crisp. However, this time around I think the band have hit on its best song yet. They’ve taken a fuller instrumental sound (heavy drums, echoey synth, resonating guitar) and blended it well with the isolated and romantic tone of the band’s lyricism and lead vocals. Follow the band on facebook and twitter. – David D. Robbins Jr.

Caitlyn Scarlett | Bad Love (Video)

“You can’t separate what you need and what you want / Bad love isn’t better than none …”  are the cautionary opening verses to Caitlyn Scarlett’s single, “Bad Love”, which has a new video featuring the singer as an omnipresent but invisible observer of a relationship going awry. Scarlett had been a backing singer for rapper Little Simz, but has broken out on her own, showcasing her pretty, powerfully soulful vocals that would fit right in there with George Maple and BANKS. “Bad Love” is a great track, sung with a lot confidence, punctuated by a surging arrangement of strings, bass beat, elegant jazz bass, well-written lyrics, and stylish R&B vocals. You can follow the singer at twitter and facebook– David D. Robbins Jr.
