Jeanines celebrate LP release at Alphaville on 06.22

Brooklyn's Jeanines specialize in ultra-short bursts of energetic but melancholy minor-key pop. With influences that run deep into the most crucial tributaries of DIY pop — Messthethics, the Television Personalities, Marine Girls, early Pastels, Dolly Mixture — they've crafted a style that is as individual as it is just plain pleasurable. Alicia Jeanine's pure, unaffected voice muses wistfully on the illusions of time, while My Teenage Stride/Mick Trouble mastermind Jed Smith's frantic Motown-esque drumming and inventive bass playing provide a thrilling rhythmic foundation. They have a new album coming out on Slumberland and they will be celebrating its release at Alphaville on 06.22, after a brief East Coast tour. Stream single "Either Way" below.

Flash Trading debuts moody single "Similar Devils," plans EP release for year's end

Brooklyn’s Flash Trading is back with a tastefully concocted sonic haze of ambient pop that has a touch of grey to it: the easy-listening vibe of the group's latest single “Similar Devils” seemingly fits for both overcast mornings or foggy evenings, the music evokes a serene mood. “This track was inspired by the lazy monotony of seasonal affective disorder. The feeling of waking up in a drafty room for months on end, your curtains separating you and the world, wanting nothing more than to fall back asleep,” is what the band had to say about the composition. Despite having some elements of house music near the end of the track, “Similar Devils” cruises most of the song, letting its deep bass groove, atmospheric electric guitar phrases, and elegant synthesizer strains carry the listener to the comfortable corners of their mind. Flash Trading once again stimulates the brain, the way a good sophisti-pop band ought to do, letting the listener bask in their mood as they lounge. The band is preparing an EP for release later this year; in the meantime, we are premiering the new single for you below. - Rene Cobar

Wet Dream Song Release

Wet Dream just premiered their song “See Foam Run,” off their upcoming album Future Nostalgic. The dream-pop band manages to peacefully blend the more wistful elements of their music with the more upbeat backing. “See Foam Run” creates a unique and lovely combination of moods. It feels lost but not lonely, guided by an earnest desire to explore the darkness it finds itself in. Listening to the song feels like looking at yourself in the mirror surrounded by shadowy neon lighting. It's a beautiful piece of exploration. 

Future Nostalgic will be out on August 7th.
