Still Corners – All I Know

London band Still Corners announced second LP Strange Pleasures last month. First single “Berlin Lovers” indicated perhaps a more synth-laden, compact direction for LP #2. New track “All I Know”, while in structure follows on from that first indication, takes a even darker and decidedly more nocturnal direction. Built on the simple mechanic of a spare drum figure & hushed percussive guitar; “All I Know” is primed for car stereo listening; late night, streets of the empty city cruising. That we can definitely dig and we can definitely get into Still Corners new sound. Strange Pleasures is due May 7th on Sub Pop.

Ifan Dafydd – Llonydd (Feat. Alys Williams)

ifandafydd2

Insanely talented electronic musician and Welsh language enthusiast Ifan Dafydd is back with a new track today in the form of the kinetic & beautiful “Llonydd”. If the Andromeda Galaxy had a quiet storm R&B station (and if they spoke Welsh) “Llonydd” would likely dominate its’ “late night” “grown” rotation. A part of a new out-today 10″ compilation spotlighting rising Welsh artists, you can find “Llonydd” via Recordiau Lilwgar.

Tokyo Denmark Sweden – When It Breaks

tokyodenmarksweden

Australian trio Tokyo Denmark Sweden make electro-dance-pop that will spur an 80’s movie buff to yearn for a new John Hughes film. While Hollywood can’t seem to create the same magic Mr. Hughes did, Tokyo Denmark Sweden have no problem translating the classic synth era into modern nostalgia. Packed with rich bass and beats, bright vocals and synthesizers, ‘When It Breaks’ is about 3 minutes and 40 seconds worth of danceable escapism; magic we all can use. By Desiree Autobee
