MishCatt provides a mood lift with new single "Goofy"

The summer's half over, and yet with the world as it is, it may feel like the summer hasn't even begun. Costa Rican pop artist Michelle Gonzalez a.k.a. MishCatt comes to us with her new single "Goofy", which she bills as "therapy for mood elevation". The electric blend of pop and jazz mixed with Gonzalez's sultry voice makes it a song of the summer contender, and the team behind it (Carl Falk, Albin Nedler, and DYO) have produced pop hits for artists such as Madonna and Ariana Grande, giving "Goofy" the power to rise up the charts. For anyone thinking that MishCatt sounds familiar, she performed an acoustic version of "Fades Away" at an Avicii tribute concert last year in Stockholm; fans of the departed EDM artist may have heard her there. Take a look at the sunny video for "Goofy" below. - Will Sisskind

The Flower Pistils experiment in new single "Oooh Banana"

Was it so long ago that the now infamous duct-taped banana at Art Basel made headlines around the world? When you listen to The Flower Pistils’ (Emma Gies and Micah Huang) art-pop single “Oooh Banana,” you feel you are eating it yourself. The song experiments with electronic influences and suggestive themes that defy the group’s usual indie-pop label; fuck labels. Mechanical but groovy, abstract yet profound, you can savor the single as you like. As the rhythm trots and intensifies its pace, you cannot help join it—what else would you like for a weekend treat? Stream “Oooh Banana” below for a taste of fantasies born out of exquisite sounds. - René Cobar





PREMIERE: TALLBIRD detail friendship vibrantly on “Battery,” new LP out 9.25

The music of Brooklyn-based indie pop duo Tallbird is a consistent blend of idiosyncratic and sincere, marked by joyful subject matter expressed in a manner that’s warm and, occasionally, fluorescent. Take new single “Battery” as an introductory smattering of the band’s colorful approach to sound collage — bombastic horns, a marching rhythmic core, and sweet vox by Erica Marchetta-Wood converge in maximalist fashion, yet the sound is never overwhelming and feels ever-familiar. It’s fitting then that the song’s subject matter deals with having an extremely extroverted friend who can be, in a sense, a “bit much” at times; give it a listen below and keep an eye out for Tallbird’s forthcoming record Lost Pet Poster Temple out September 25.

Disco Shrine provides summer pop bliss with "Future Memories"

There's no real song of the summer this year, given the limitations upon any sort of activities where someone might blast said song of the summer from a car radio or a boombox or a beachfront DJ setup. But that's not going to stop musicians of all kinds from trying to make one. Disco Shrine, aka Persian Barbie, has a new track out called "Future Memories", and it's a crunchy track that mixes dream pop with headbanging rock to create a tasty summer cocktail of a song. The accompanying music video gets its vintage look from being filmed on a Nineties-era camcorder in locked-down LA. For anyone looking for a fresh addition to their summer playlist, even if that playlist won't leave the confines of their own home, "Future Memories" is one to pick. It'll appear on Disco Shrine's upcoming debut EP xoxo, disco later this summer. Take a look at the video for "Future Memories" below. - Will Sisskind





Jonathan Something displays vintage panache in new video “I Tried To Lose You But I Don’t Know How”

There’s something endearing about nakedly bearing one’s heart on your sleeve, and Jonathan Something captures a bygone 80s pre-sadboy bravado in new video “I Tried To lose You But I Don’t Know How.” Forlorn melody and plucky Yamaha synths bring a vintage aesthetic to the forefront (as does the quasi-VHS grain of the visuals), but Something really sells it in his panache, both in physical movement and vocal prowess; his pop vocal delivery occupies the liminal space between camp and classic, equally evocative of both James Murphy and George Michael. Tongue in cheek and deceptively catchy, watch the video below, and stream his new record Cannibal House Rules, out now via Solitaire Recordings. Photo by Mike Boyle
