Grady – Only One

Indie pop dynamo Whethan is on production for “Only One”, new from Grady. “Only One” gets its dough off its cool combo and juxtaposition of jazzy mind-melter guitar chords and a rhythmic vocal melody that quickly buries itself in your mind’s memory trap.

yot club – no way !

We’re into yot club’s recent track “no way!” The track is set around a deep-in-the-PA vocal put to stabs of reverbed guitar and a 1-2 chug main rhythm pattern. It’s a spaced out bit of dreamy lo-fi pop that deserves your listening attention below.

imugi – Greensmoke

A Label Called Success is the secondary for newcomer duo imugi and their track for “Greensmoke”. The track’s center is imugi singer Yery Cho’s great main melody and vocal, which spun over an instrumental of soulful electronics and subtly set bits of reverb and delay.

AB001 – Beauty Sleep

We like this one quite a bit. “Beauty Sleep” is the dreamy new one from AB001. On the track, a beautiful and spare main vocal drifts and lilts in and out a mix of quiet drums and lo-fi sonics creating a cool spacey hymnal quality to the track. We can dig it.
