We just featured Von Sell’s infectious track “Names” a few weeks back, though even newer effort “Miss Me” is enough of a standout to warrant more coverage. It’s also a great demonstration of Brooklyn-based David Von Sell’s diversity as a songwriter. “Names” was certainly the punchier of the two, showcasing a classical-minded direction in the […] The post Von Sell – “Miss Me” appeared first on .
Norwegian five-piece Toy Savoy impress mightily on new track “Morning”, which aptly begins in sunrise-like fashion as fluttering guitars and an xylophone-like whirlwind awaken the shimmering effort. The soaring vocals that emerge at 00:49 are crisp and clean, with a gentle synth warble pulsation just below. The first hook – “in time I find” – […] The post Toy Savoy – “Morning” appeared first on .
NINTH CHILD’s atmospherically rich new track “Say What You Mean” places listeners in a purple haze, with whooshing nocturnal synths, varying vocal pitches, and tropical tinges assembling a lush and enticing soundscape. The vocal pitch alternation, hauntingly effective especially just prior to the two-minute mark with the child-like hypnotism, is wonderfully produced — as are […] The post NINTH CHILD – “Say What You Mean” appeared first on .

It’s raining where I am, so Zeila’s smooth-riding new track “It Never Goes Away” is hitting the spot particularly well, though it’s also the sort of effort that would shine on a summer day. Roaring vocal enthusiasm, stellar guitar work, and engrossing melodic development with touches of blues and jazz are the focal points of […] The post Zeila – “It Never Goes Away” appeared first on .
“As Far As I Can” is a new single from London-based electronic trio Kylypso, whose new EP finds them making progress in several regards. “After the M2U EP we decided to head out of the bedroom and into a real studio,” they explain. “Working with producer Hugh Fothergill (Kwabs, Kodaline) we took a slight change […] The post Kylypso – “As Far As I Can” appeared first on .

The creators of this track is a duo out of a Portland, OR called Dim Wit, formerly known as Tyler & The Verigins. They produce “slightly dark and witty” tunes, […] The post Dim Wit – “Wow Ow Now” appeared first on .
