Though it takes a bit to get going, "Golden Arrow" is a masterful new release from electronic duo Darkside. We loved the group's EP back in 2011 and can't wait for the upcoming full length.
Dark, ominous, vaguely unpleasant (but in a good way), no one manipulates mood better than Tim Hecker. "Virginal II" is the artist's latest release and features awesome production wizardry.
"Echelon (It's My Way)"
Haze has proved herself as one of the sharpest MCs around, but now she's courting the pop-music world — and succeeding. "Echelon (It's My Way)" works at both showing off Angel Haze's rapping skill and giving us a big hook to sink our teeth into.
"My Party (feat. Zebra Katz)"
Hooking up with Zebra Katz was an inspired call for synth duo of the moment, Icona Pop. The rapper of "Ima Read" fame balances out the band's joyously over-the-top brand of electro-pop nicely.
This dreamy piece of synth-pop from Washington D.C.'s Drop Electric is an infectiously blissful take on the genre. We can't get the chorus out of our heads.
The latest from the Adult Swim Singles series brings us a new track from bass-music wizard Andy Stott. The sampled vocals from his ex-piano teacher Alison Skidmore offer a vague hint of sunlight.
