If you like twisted, noir electro-pop then you're going to be drooling all over yourself listening to Laure Shang's richly-layered new single, which is surely the bleakest-sounding song called "I Love You" ever written. It's also my favorite song to be released so far from her...Read more
Lui Hill was discovered by Tobias Herder, who has signed him to the Filter Music Group with four singles and an album due out over the course of the next year. Previously, Herder discovered the amazing Milky Chance and Hill is no less talented. ...Read more
interview by Michael McCarthy A dance and rap duo formed by RiRi and Lulu, FEMM are mannequins who have emotions. They are new icons for TOKYO POP. They can’t talk but can sing, however, so each girl’s agent, “Honey-B” and “W-Trouble”, who look identical to FEMM, always speak for them and have participated...Read more
The thing that makes Laure Shang one of my favorite Chinese artists is that you never know what she's going to do next. You really don't. In fact, I dare say she's one of the most unpredictable artists on the planet, which, for me, also makes her...Read more
Just earlier this week I found myself wondering whatever happened to Fischerspooner. They were one of my favorite electronic music duos several years ago but they've been absent from the scene for quite a while now. Well, it turns out they've been cooking up something good, which we're...Read more
It's always fulfilling when an artist you thought was brilliant turns around and releases something new a year or two later and they're still just as impressive. In other words, there's nothing worse than saying someone is as refreshing as a cool, sudden rainfall on a 100-degree day...Read more
Acclaimed DJ and producer Agatino Romero was born in Hamburg, but still considers himself an authentic Italian. His family, you see, comes from Catania, Sicily. Until a few years ago, he was on his way as a young professional soccer player with HSV and the Italian club Calcio Catania...Read more
interview by Michael McCarthy Mystery Skulls, otherwise known as Luis Dubuc, was something of a mystery to me prior to reading the press release for his new album, One of Us. All I knew was that I loved the Mystery Skulls debut album, Forever. You see, I had no idea if Mystery Skulls...Read more
Well, kids, the dance-pop world has two new mascots to worship. One of the guys -- assuming they're guys -- wears a fox mask and the other one wears a human mask except that it looks like he's a human from Gorrilaz. ...
interview by Michael McCarthy I recently fell in love with Canadian alt-pop singer-songwriter Adaline’s new album Aquatic, which contains a treasure trove of thought-provoking lyrics, sung over some of the most seductive basslines ever recorded and blissed-out beats that mix the organic and the electronic to perfection. I must also add that her...Read more
Elohim's latest single, "Skinny Legs," might strike you as an abstract, maybe even inaccessible, song the first few times you listen to it. I even wondered if it was too bizarre for me when it first wormed its way inside my ears. That said, I put...Read more
"Why Bother" is the second single from Luke Faas, a 23-year-old Norwegian singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. It follows his debut single, "Should've Seen It." At first, the lyrics of the punchy, seductive, electro-soul "Why Bother" might sound apathetic, like a depressed person not wanting to bother...Read more
It's Goldfrapp so, of course, it's good. No, it's better than good. It's fan-fucking-tastic. Let its throbbing beats overcome you and move your body as the dancers do in the red hot video. Or at least getup and dance. It's a sin to...
Wendy Bevan, who I interviewed late last year, has a new EP coming out on May 12th via Kwaidan / !K7 Records called Love from the Moon and today we have the luxurious title track for you. Dig that rolling bass and her icy vocals during the electro-pop...
