Listen: Violet Skies – ‘Jealousy’

You might know Welsh electro-pop artist Violet Skies from her appearance on the BBC Introducing Stage at Glastonbury, or perhaps her mighty late-2013 single ‘How The Mighty.’ Across the past year she’s been working on new material and what she’s emerged with is something a bit more restrained and much like many of her female…

Listen: Benedek – ‘Coolin’

LA has produced some great musicians who like to toy with the fabric of genres. Yes, Flying Lotus is one of them, mashing together jazz and hip hop into a blend that’s hard to resist. But very few artists from there tackle pure funk and you usually have to look elsewhere to get that fix….

Watch: Julianna Barwick – ‘Nebula’

Image: Derrick Belcham Fans of atmospheric ambient music rejoice! Queen of all things epic Julianna Barwick is back with a new album, Will, which is out soon and it can’t come too soon after the release of her last LP Nepenthe. As most fans of Barwick will know, she spends much of her time touring…

Listen: Cash + David – ‘Alright Now’

Londoners Tim Ross and Liz Lawrence got together to create a dance duo one day and decided to call themselves Cash + David. Sounds a bit like a cheesy 70s comedy group doesn’t it? Even the title of their latest track makes it sound like they’re going to be covering Free. But don’t let any…

Listen: SOFI TUKKER – ‘Hey Lion’

A couple of months back we talked about only the second single to be released by New York based addict-pop duo SOFI TUKKER, ‘Matadora.’ It was the one inspired by Brazilian culture, remember? Of course you do. It was a track by the ridiculously infectious SOFI TUKKER and it’s now permanently lodged in your brain….

Listen: Meadowlark – ‘Paraffin’

I saw Bristolians Meadowlark playing at Tramlines last year and for the longest time before they came on, I swore they were going to be a cutesy, folky duo (they have the words “meadow” and “lark” in their name). And yeah, there was a little folksiness in there but on the whole I was surprised…

Watch: Haelos – ‘Separate Lives’

“It’s a reflection on the moment when you are choosing between staying or leaving and the underlying love that keeps you there. We liked that, it was simple and human and something we could all share experience in.” That’s what British dance trio Haelos say of their latest single ‘Separate Lives,’ which like much of…

Listen: Morly – ‘If Only Chords’

Born in Minneapolis, based in Los Angeles, Katy Morly, known professionally only by her last name Morly, has been working up towards the release of her new EP Something More Holy. That means she’s locked herself away and collaborated with Stint, but her labours have produced something magical in the form of her new song….

Listen: Overcoats – ‘Nighttime Hunger’

When we’re presenting the show every week until 11pm, sometimes the munchies set in (because the chatter we do just works up so much of an appetite. We talk about cheese a lot). I don’t think that’s the type of hunger New York electronic duo Overcoats are singing about on their latest track though. Although…

Listen: Kaleida – ‘It’s Not Right’

Together, Christina Wood and Cicely Goulder, who perform under the name Kaleida, have amassed over 10 million streams of their debut EP Think. Yeah, that’s right. 10 million. One. Zero. Million. That’s quite a lot by our calculations, yet Kaleida might not be a name too many people are familiar with. It’s not right. Oh,…
