Today we have three exceptionally good pop tunes of very different styles, all works of art in our opinion....Read more

I imagine this would work splendidly as score in a movie. Perhaps in a suspense thriller that takes place during the winter. I imagine the protagonist fleeing from her captors, and she comes to the edge of a frozen lake, and her only chance of survival is...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
As you probably have figured out by now, most of our song of the day selections are chosen because they're catchy. It's almost an unwritten rule that we only select the most infectious tunes we come across. There are exceptions to this rule and today is...Read more
by Michael McCarthy Mimoza H is one of the most fascinating artists I’ve come across in a long time. Her somewhat abstract music is like a cross between Florence + The Machine, Bjork and Tori Amos. That might not sound like a good combination, but to my ears it’s sonic bliss. I especially...Read more
Detroit rapper ZelooperZ — who was born in the 313 and still resides there — is part of Danny Brown’s Bruiser Brigade. Interestingly, they connected via Twitter when the 6’7″ ZelooperZ was promoting a mixtape like crazy and Brown took notice. But before Brown took him into the studio he gave him a proper...Read more
AJ Unity are a duo comprised of Naomi Suzuki, one of the most popular singers from Japan in the UK, and Philipp Moll. The two first collaborated when Moll produced one of Naomi's solo albums and they sensed that they were destined to make more music together....

They’re not songs I’d necessarily take and put on a playlist. (They don’t necessarily play well with other artists.) I have to be...Read more
Ezra Furman is a restless warrior. He well-established this on his first two solo albums and with his late band the Harpoons. One has only ever needed to hear a few of his songs to realize that he’s a guy who can’t sit still, not even inside his head. He is always brimming...Read more
When a band is as beloved as The Beatles, covering them is always a risky proposition. If your covers are too similar then people will deem them pointless and say that the original versions are better. But if you change them dramatically, well, people will still say the original versions are better. Unless,...Read more
These New Puritans are gearing up to release their new double live album, Expanded (Live at the Barbican), on October 20th. It will be released digitally, on CD and on limited edition double clear vinyl....
Ninetails are a three piece band from Liverpool. As for what sort of band they are, well, that’s nearly impossible to say. Their songs are rather mold-breaking and don’t conform to the rules of any genre, so I suppose you could call them avant-garde, but then avant-garde artists tend to be really “out...Read more
