Fear of Tigers – The Legend of Ian Usher

fearoftigers

Fear of Tigers continues down the road of great production. Just released upon the world is “The Legend Of Ian Usher”, an unf-tastic, synthy funk jam that is just too infectious to listen to at a low volume. A bad day is damn near impossible with this track on the stereo. By Desiree Autobee

Mapei – Don’t Wait (Giraffage Remix)

mapei

SF producer whiz kid Giraffage puts a nice flip on the much hyped Stockholm native Mapei’. Throwing some signature synths and 808 hits over the soulful vocalizing of “Don’t Wait”, Giraffage makes another incredible remix. Favorite part of the remix has to be that breakdown at 2:00. Straight head-nod inducing. By Brian Litwin

Moon Boots – Don’t Ask Why (Feat. Kyiki)

moonboots

The new single from Brooklyn by way of Chicago spaceman Moon Boots is a slight step away from his bouncy, tropical disco feel. More raw and full of emotion “Don’t Ask Why” features the vocal talent of Crystal Fighters’ Kyiki, who shines on this track. This latest offering from the French Express solider is his closest thing to a pop song yet. By Brian Litwin

Conner Youngblood – Confidence

conneryoungblood

23 year old Yale grad blogger fave Conner Youngblood takes a stab at Arcade Fire-esque big sounding indie pop and mostly succeeds with “Confidence”. A soaring verse buoyed by arena-sized marching drums complements a more Youngblood-styled abstract chorus framed by hip hop & electronic elements (and while that melange of instrumentation reads like a potential disaster in the making, Youngblood ably manages it).

Turtle – Opposite of Low

turtle

“Opposite of Low” is the second single from “Who Knows”, the new EP from Glasgow-based artist Jon Cooper a/k/a Turtle. “Opposite of Low” is built around a simmering drone of menacing electronics, clattering percussion, and a hypnotic repeating vocal figure; it’s the supporting elements, however, where the track is particularly special as Cooper expertly bends and molds varying swells of synth and other dynamics to create compelling points of tension and tautness. “Who Knows” is out March 3rd on Beatnik.

Oceaán – Turned Away

oceaan

Oceaán’s self-titled debut EP is shaping up to be a really handsome offering. This latest cut ‘Turned Away’ is pushing in the same direction as the likes of Ben Khan – with it’s engulfing swirl of vocals wrapped around a melay of percussion and distorted synths that leap out of the mix like solar flares. The entire package will be released March 31st on Chess Club Records and this world will be all the better for it. By Nathan Hetherington
