Shanti Celeste :: Universal Glow EP

We shared the moody title track form Shanti's forthcoming Universal Glow EP (Broadwalk) in our latest mix but you can now sample a preview of all three tracks below.
 

Electric Youth :: A Real Hero (SC Live Session, Pt. 1) :: Video

Electric Youth perform the anthemic and timeless love song "A Real Hero" in part one of this Secretly Canadian live session. If you haven't already, check out their undeniable single "Runaway" from the band's forthcoming full-length, Innerworld, due September 30.

SOSMIX 8.28.14

I think this is one of my favorite collections, and I may be pregnant after listening to that Louis La Roche jam for like the seventeenth time. Have a happy Labor Day weekend and get nuts. Also, thank you to all of the people sending me submissions through Soundcloud and the renewed interest in this blog, keep up the good work.
 

TOKiMONTSA :: Steal My Attention

TOKiMONSTA just leaked a new track from her forthcoming album, Desiderium, and it's beautiful. Pass along "Steal My Attention" to your friends.

"I am going through some tough shit right now and all that makes me happy is that I can bring other people music that may help them in some way."

Desiderium is due September 23 through her own imprint Young Art Records.
 

SOSMIX 8.22.14

FYF Fest weekend! Although I won't be catching many electronic artists -- with exception of Caribou, Four Tet, and Todd Terje -- most of the artists in this mix will be my talking points.
 

Lemonade :: Come Down Softly

Finally diving into this Lemonade full-length and "Come Down Softly" is without question the best Howard Jones-Scritti Politti track ever made. Immaculate vocal production on this too.

Minus Tide drops September 9 through Cascine.

Jon Convex :: Force

I don't know which one I like better, the previously posted "Snake" and it's relentless fisting techno or this creepier, heavy zap of beats. "He know he fucked up and let us down", that ain't my John Convex, but it has got to be the best and most anti-dance floor loop ever, and, it works so well with the darkness created from those gooey synths. Rock this, hard.

The Force-Snake 12" single is available on August 25 through Zone.
