Dive

(Ghostly International)

Sounds Like: The San Fran-based artist/producer’s second is stunning, simple and euphoric wordless pop; dipped in downtempo beats and baked in the California sun.

Free Association: When graphic designers are so cool they HAVE to make music, too.

For Fans Of: Boards of Canada, Herbaliser x Neon Indian, stoney sunset drives.

 

RCMP

RCMP II 

(Young Robots)

Sounds Like: Philly’s nu-disco prince, DJ Apt One, plus Relative Q on synths, drop a second EP of catchy/sweaty modern dance tracks on unsuspecting dancefloors.

Free Association: Bet you forgot how disco can turn a party out—this ain’t no hustle!

For Fans Of: Chic x Hercules & Love Affair, Hot Chip x italo disco, lasers and sex.

 

Joe Henry

Reverie

(ANTI-)

Sounds Like: The former Jayhawk’s been churning out sad bastard Americana since ‘86, and while it’s rich with pianos, strings, lyricism and heart, it’s tough to stomach.

Free Association: Some people (Tom Waits fans) have patience for this kind of shit.

For Fans Of: Leonard Cohen/Elvis Costello, Ron Sexsmith, gritty old man blues.
