On September 9th, JMSN’s White Room Records will be dropping a new LP for a project called Pearl. Beyond the tracklist that lists a talented array of singers that include Alcordo, Lauren Faith, Wynter Gordon, Niia, Channy Leaneagh of POLIÇA, and JMSN himself, we don’t know much more about it. Our only guess is it is a side project of JMSN, but who knows. We have heard “I Know” featuring the previously mentioned Alcordo, now we get this soft gem “Not Enough” featuring Niia, who sings two songs on the album. Stream it below.

1. Dreams
2. Too Much (Niia)
3. Not Enough (Niia)
4. I Know (Alcordo)
5. Lie & Cheat (Lauren Faith)
6. Never Comin’ Back (Wynter Gordon)
7. On Your Mind (Nylo)
8. Daily (Yasmin)
9. Holy Water (JMSN)
10. Said (Channy Leaneagh of POLIÇA)

Austin garage rock duo The Ghost Wolves released their LP, Man, Woman, Beast earlier this year via Plowboy Records. Comprised of Carley and Jonathan Wolf, they follow in the steps of many other bands previously who create music and happen to be married. The describe themselves as “stomp and roll” and sound like a grittier and scuzzy version of the B-52’s that would not be out of place in a Tarantino flick. They have a new video for their latest single “Shotgun Pistol Grip” and it is everything you would expect it to be. Wolf masks, coffins, evil priests all on scorched film in Austin, TX. Like we said, Tarantino flick. Watch below.

London based duo Little Shoes Big Voice have revealed their second ever single “Blue Veins”. It is being dubbed their official introduction to the music world and will be packaged with b-side “Heaven Ain’t High”. Comprised of songwriter, producer and vocalist Jack Durtnall as well as vocalist Emily Harvey, the duo explores more of a natural balance between traditional instrumentation and electronics. Harvey’s vocals on the song have a sweet intonation that carries some similarities to Ellie Goulding at moments. Listen below.

Producer SBTRKT recently announced his new LP, Wonder Where We Land, set to drop on September 24th via Young Turks. The album will feaure guest spots from Jessie Ware, Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig, Caroline Polachek, Denai Moore, A$AP Ferg, and frequent collaborator Sampha.

We have already heard “Temporary View” featuring Sampha and the latest “New Dorp New York” with Ezra Koenig handling vocals, but he appeared this week on Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 show to perform a couple of more new ones in addition to the previously mentioned songs. Stream the session below and hear previously unheard album cuts “Highs & Lows” along with “War Drums” featuring an assist from Warpaint.

Song : Hiss Golden Messenger : “Mahogany Dread”

So far the M.C. Taylor-lead project Hiss Golden Messenger are two for two with “Saturday’s Song” and this new one “Mahogany Dread” from their upcoming Lateness of Dancers LP (out September 9th via Merge). Music is a funny thing. When you think you have heard this type of music over and over, there is always someone that comes around and does it in a way that sounds both throwback and fresh at the same time. The song is just a well-executed sprawling folk-rock track ideal for that next road trip. Listen below.

Song : Wet : “Move Me” (TÂCHES Remix)

Enigmatic producer TÂCHES masterfully reworks “Move Me”, the latest from Brooklyn-based three-piece Wet. He replaced the moodiness of the original and electrifies the song with club-ready beats and Balearic sounds. This version might be better than the already great original. Decide for yourself below.

Song : Cyril Hahn : “Open” (ft. Ryan Ashley)

Swiss producer Cyril Hahn will be dropping a new EP titled Voices very soon via PMR. While there is not an official date, he has shared a new song “Open” featuring vocals from London singer Ryan Ashley. The song overtakes you with a rush of emotion from longing to appreciation for those closest to you. It is a superb slice of electronic pop. The song has looking forward to what is to come from this new EP. Stream below.
