beni indian summer

After just hitting #1 on the Hype Machine charts earlier this week, Australian 2-man outfit, Indian Summer, are back at it with a remix for the soulful club record, “Protect,” from Modular People signee and GDD™ fav, Beni. Taking Beni’s original into dark, Techno-infused territory, Indian Summer create an engaging creepiness with their remix equipped with menacing stabs, pitched down vocals, and a half-time breakdown that sets up a dynamic second half of the tune.

Listen first below, and if you’re in Australia you can pick it up today, if you’re in the US, snag it next week.

Treasure Fingers and buzzing Atlanta singer/songwriter BOSCO have joined forces to bring you one glossy, swagilicious and savory summertime jam. BOSCO’s vocals are straight up BOSSAY, while Mr. Fingers’ keen hands serves us a delicious amount of cowbell intermixed with a plethora of grooves – which as a result, delivers a vogue-ready, street struttin’, feel good tune. “Names” is out 7/29 on Fools Gold Records.

Here’s a bright little disco pop joint between Viceroy‘s sunshine-signature production and Penguin Prison‘s equally shimmery vocals.  Here, we find a carefree, no-problems-heard track that bops along to the tune of summer for ya, regardless of which hemisphere your ears currently reside.  Summertime all the time, ever heard of it?  Too easy.

The artwork for the new single “Don’t Tell” by Mansions on the Moon perfectly encapsulates what it feels like when listening to the brand new track: it’s like floating through a turquoise/hot pink sky on a bed of cotton candy clouds.  It’s a celestial, euphoric Disco Pop, alterna-lectro tune that sets the table nicely for what the band has to offer in the very near future.  Mansions on the Moon will be releasing their self titled debut album this Fall.  And, if “Don’t Tell” is any indication on what the album has in store, then excitement levels are sky high.

Be sure to check out the information below on the band’s partnership with PledgeMusic:

Jungle

It’s easy to get excited about a band like Jungle. Their sound is unlike anything else available at the moment, and that’s not to say it doesn’t sound like anything I’ve ever heard before. Their combination of tones and rhythms, though, makes this album an unusual auditory experience, and that’s something I can respect. It’s the funk and soul of our parents time, with their darkened chord progressions and soaring psychedelic vocals initiating their sound into the 21st century. At their core, they’re a collective, a troupe of funkadelic comrades led by members J & T, united by their groovy soundscapes. Continue Reading
