Listen: George Arturo Calendar – “Pesadillas” [2021]

In case you haven’t noticed, I’ve been crafting up a suite of dreamy, smeared out playlists made for fantasizing about dizzying nights out while staying in every day. Lots of these playlists are made from disparate tunes from random nooks … Continue reading

Listen: SPELLLING – “Boys At School” [2021]

Listen: Erika de Casier – “Drama” [2021]

Erika de Casier is BACK with her second single for new label home 4AD, which continues her so far perfect streak of tunes to her name. It’s another late night, late 90s/early 00s slick pop swoon, harkening back to Timbaland-produced … Continue reading

Listen: Mr Twin Sister – “Diary” b/w “Expressions” [2021]

Mr Twin Sister is one of the best bands currently operating, point blank, period. Their luscious fusion of electronic, pop and lounge, among other luxurious, body-feeling sounds is virtually unmatched. Their 2014 self-titled album is one of my all-time favorites … Continue reading
