We last heard from Nashville’s Sol Cat back in June with their song “Bread on the Table”. At the time, it was advertised as the first of a two singles that were to be unveiled by the band this past summer. As you all know, plans sometimes don’t work out, but don’t fret. Today, we have the premiere of the promised second single “Body Like That” along with a fantastic new video, just a couple of weeks too late.

The song pays homage to the fairer sex and how they sometimes can manipulate using their sexuality. The video follows this same idea using Barbie dolls to act out the story of a blonde femme fatale. You can find the song and video below along with their upcoming tour dates that hit up all points of the States.

MOKB Premiere : Liza Flume : “Sleepless Nights”

 photo lizaflume_zps9bc8e0c5.jpg

Genres and traditions of music are being blurred now more than ever. Sylvan Esso, for instance, takes folk-styled vocals and accentuates them with ambient electronic elements, whereas in the past would have had a sparse, acoustic accompaniment. Australian born, Dublin based Liza Flume is another artist who creates music in a similar fashion. After receiving some much deserved attention for her 2013 debut EP, Full Steam Ahead, she has been hard at work in the studio with producer Brian Dillon looking to further perfect her craft. The first fruit of this labor is the intimate “Sleepless Nights”.

The song tells the common story of lying awake in bed being unsettled by where your life currently stands. Flume continues on only to put a period on the song summing up all her anxieties with the line “I don’t want to die alone”. Her vocals float ever so softly over masterful production that highlights the solemn tone the song, rather than overtaking it. It marks a captivating introduction into the new chapter of Flume’s musical journey. Listen below.

If you long for the days of mid to late ’90s Britpop, quartet Superfood are a must listen. Having already created buzz via various EPs and singles, the band is gearing up for the release of their debut album, Don’t Say That, on November 4th through Infectious Music. The video for the song matches the vibrancy of the fantastic single with splashes of color and nonsensical psych imagery directed by Charlotte Rutherford. Watch below and be on the lookout for them at various UK stops in the coming months with, hopefully, some Stateside dates on the horizon.

Song : White Sea : “Prague” (:Papercutz Remix)

Sometimes M83 collaborator Morgan Kibby aka White Seareleased her very good debut long-play, In Cold Blood, via Crush Music earlier this year. One of the highlights from it was the song “Prague”. Producer :P apercutz has shared his reimagining of said track lightening the musical components without affecting the emotional gravitas conveyed in the vocals. Stream/download the remix below.

Song : Mister Lies : “High” (ft. Harrison Lipton)

As mentioned in the release of his excellent song “Deepend”, producer artist Nick Zanca aka Mister Lies has his second LP, Shadows, due out October 28th via Orchid Tapes. His second song from the release, “High”, falls in the same emotional spectrum as that song and features vocals from Harrison Lipton and Bridgette Lemoine. The song starts off unassuming enough only to culminate around the 3:30 minute mark into something truly captivating. We highly recommend pre-ordering it here on limited edition black and royal vinyl. Listen below.

Song : Splashh : “Colour It In”

Comfort, the 2013 debut album from East London-based band Splashh was a grossly underrated affair here in the states. The LP was full of youthful energy accentuated by heavy shoegaze, surf, and garage influences. The band has signaled their follow-up with the appearance of new song “Colour It In”. The song has an attractive wisfullness about it that is only further hightened by the video presented with the song full of .gifs imagery of decades past. Look to expect their sophomore album in early 2013 via Kanine Records.
