Golden Curls – 'Your Girl'

‘Your Girl’ is must listen for downbeat woozy electronic fans. Missouri’s Golden Curls (Sarah Downen and Noah Blackwell) manage to keep their digital creation sounding very analogue. It’s understated and gets its claws into you. Influenced by the likes of Beach House, Twin Shadow and Stars – grab Golden Curls ‘Warm Fiction’ EP free here.

Playground Feat. The Voyeurist – 'Callous'

Don’t let the warbled intro phase you, ‘Callous’ is infectious! The dark, textured synth pop tune comes from Playground’s debut self-titled EP, available now for free download via Stellar Kinematics. Playground is the work of Parisian artist Sophia Hamadi. Her impressive home recording was given some extra polish by Brian Pyle (Ensemble Economique). The new wave inspired result is well worth a listen, especially at this price!

Beach House – 'Myth'

Baltimore darlings Beach House release their new record ‘Bloom’ on May 15 via Sub Pop. Our first listen is ‘Myth’, a spacious slow burner that hints the duo’s fourth album won’t be lacking quality. 2010’s ‘Teen Dream’ is going to be tough to top nevertheless.
