Pinemarten - Tea & Toast

Last month, British pop project Pinemarten churned out two short, three-song sets entitled Bay and Home to serve as the bookends of April. Putting together chilled out disco beats from Chesterfield, England, Pinemarten first came on to my radar a few months ago with his remix of Swedish trio Museum of Bellas Artes’ jam Watch The Glow. Now Pinemarten has original tunes trickling out on both his soundcloud and bandcamp. Check out Tea & Toast off Home below.

Ra Ra Riot - Massachusetts (Kisses Remix)

Ra Ra Riot recently released a super smooth remix of their tune ‘Massachusetts’ crafted by Los Angeles’ Kisses. Slowed down and mellowed out, the duo’s reworking of the track comes just in time, bringing some of Southern California’s sunshine up to Massachusetts through May’s earliest rays. Mighty fine sunshine.

Irish teenager Jack Colleran is back with his newest tune under his moniker Moths, a wonderfully airy soundscape off LYFSTYL’s stunning compilation Blissful Allusion.

Work Drugs - Tropic of Cancer / Tropic of Capricorn

Yesterday Tom and Ben of Philadelphia-based duo Work Drugs sent over their debut album Tropic of Cancer/ Tropic of Capricorn which they’ve been putting together in preparation for their April tour with Two Door Cinema Club. When the Irishmen first approached them a few months ago, Work Drugs only had a handful of songs to their name, but now, with the release of their first album, they have a plump bag of jams from which they’ll surely draw at their upcoming shows. If you live near Philly make sure to check out their first ever show on April 2nd.

When I first heard ‘Third Wave’ four months ago I could never have imagined it played live, but with the new album they’ve offered people like me, who don’t live near one of their April dates, two live, acoustic renditions of ‘Third Wave’ and ‘Rad Racer’. The album will be released in two versions or “smooth-Ps” and only 50 of each will be made. The Tropic of Cancer disc features the Third Wave “Cayman Islands Session” and Tropic of Capricorn features the ‘Rad Racer’ session. You can check out the tracklist and buy the album, which drops April 1st, here.

Sun Glitters - outside (reprise)

Sun Glitters is the new project of Luxembourg’s Victor Ferreira. Since 1998 he’s been producing some pretty rad downtempo beats under the moniker Sug(r)cane, but on March 11th he dropped his first release as Sun Glitters, an eight-track album entitled everything could be fine. It oozes airy, pitch-shifted vocals that float above loop-based expanses of chilled-out electronica. Sun Glitters’ first set of jams casts morning’s early rays through milky windows of wonky beats and hovers in the mist of a distant dawn. Check out all of Sun Glitters’ enveloping creations over at his bandcamp. Good.

Billy Comfort - Wonder of We (feat. Steffaloo)

Billy Comfort’s newest track ‘Wonder of We’ brings summer’s rays just a step closer with it’s chopped and chilled out bouncing beats. Melting away winter’s grip, the always wonderful Steffaloo is also on track delivering airy, sun-streaked vocals. I can’t wait to see what else señor Comfort has up his sleeve.

Work Drugs - Rad Racer

Philadelphia’s premier Bat Mitzvah and Quinceañera party band Work Drugs is back with another crusin’ tune from their abandoned pier on the Delaware. Their third single Rad Racer follows in the same vein as Third Wave and Dog Daze— it is so smoooooth. Check out the rad video.

Loft Apartment - Kolipri EP

Loft Apartment is the new solo project of Aaro Vahtera, a college student from Turku, Finland. His first release, Kolipri EP, is only four songs but it moves between a handful of genres. Spanning from classical piano compositions to chillwave to dream pop and even mixing in a bit of downtempo dubstep, the variety of Aaro’s first few songs shows his ability to blend together his many influences to craft unique sounding tunes— and he promises there are many more in the works up in his loft apartment. Check out his Kolipri EP over at his soundcloud.

Video: Toro Y Moi - Still Sound

Toro Y Moi’s single ‘Still Sound’ has got me really excited for his upcoming album Underneath The Pine (February 22 on Carpark) and the jam now has a video to accompany it. Shot by Steven Daniels purely on Super 8 in Columbia, South Carolina, the video captures Chaz Bundick running around town, running away from ghosts and of course eating some luscious grapefruit, which looks far more appealing than on the album artwork.

Roman Ruins - The Comedown (Galapagos Remix)

A few months ago I saw Beach House play live. Going in I knew that Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally would blow my mind (of course), but I was also quite impressed by the duo’s touring drummer Graham Hill. I was introduced, fittingly enough, to his solo project Roman Ruins through his remix of Beach House’s ‘Lover Of Mine,’ a few weeks later. So tonight when I saw that Phoenix’s Jacob McNaughton (aka Galapagos) finished up another rad remix, this time of Graham’s single ‘The Comedown,’ I knew it’d be dope. Check it.
