We’ve finally got our hands on London-based duo Thalab’s debut EP. The guys share “A Good Swim was written and recorded last year in a room in London, by the two of us. All of the four songs came into their own in an intriguing way for us, we followed them rather than the other way around. There’s some second-rate psychoanalysis in there, some mythology, idealized kitsch landscapes and gardening problems. Both sound and words were the result of loosening up the way we approach making music.” We’re excited about what the future holds for this pair and if you’re not familiar yet, dive into the EP which is out now on Juicebox Recordings.

This is just another reason why NoMBe is the best indie act out now. Just listen to the amazing drums, the horns, and the level of detail in this record. This is an absolute smash, the flow on this, the production, literally the best thing on the internet. Make sure you checkout the rest of NoMBe here, and watch this become a household name in 2017!

Spunky, sassy and confident, LA’s newest alt-pop powerhouse duo will sing about whatever the heck they feel like singing about. Perhaps it’s their polarizing music tastes, unconventional standpoint on relationships, their refusal to go with the status quo, or Dana’s roaring voice. Either way, they’ve got something new to bring to the table and are artists to watch in 2017 in our books.
“Another Friend” explores their dark side, with Dana putting it as “This song is about quitting someone who wouldn’t put enough eggs in my basket.” We’ll let you determine the meaning of that…
For now, stream the single below!

I hadn’t heard any prior releases by the up and coming producer Niko Blank, but this was a really great first impression. Putting a huge future bass take on Coyote Kisses collaborative single “Waiting For You“ featuring Madison Love, this record is unmistakably a hit. Don’t sleep on Mr. Blank!

I loved the original of this Mickey Valen song, but SEMLR put a interesting twist on it that really stood out too me. Help this artist out by heading over to his soundcloud and giving him a vote for the remix contest.

2016 may go down as one of the weirdest years on record, but musically it’s been a sublime twelve months. Right in time for the Australian summer, Sydney based Arona Mane closes out the year with P.O.T.GS, a warm vibey tune, that somehow feels fresh and nostalgic at the same time. With a handful of BBC Radio1 plays under his belt, it’s obvious the right people (including us) are paying attention to Arona Mane, and you should too.
