November 17th is the date TĀLĀ unloads her Alchemy EP digitally with the physical following on December 1st, both via London’s Aesop Label. Her latest song “Everybody’s Free” is a reimagining of Quindon Tarver’s “Everybody’s Free (To Feel Good)” from 1996’s Romeo & Juliet Soundtrack. We cannot get enough of her. Everything she does from the music to the artwork to the videos are well-thought out and perfectly executed. Listen below.

West London’s Billie Black is poised to be the next pop/r&b singer to breakout in a similar way as BANKS has. As recent as this year, she was a first year student at Guildhall School of Music and performed jazz standards in local pubs, but things have changed dramatically for the burgeoning talent. On November 3rd, she will be releasing her debut EP, 000 0001, digitally via her own label BBLK Records with the physical version to follow. To accompany the news, she has a new simple, but well-executed black and white video for her song “I Don’t Need Another Lover”. Watch below.

MOKB Premiere : HΛNΛH : “Hideaway” (Shines Remix)

The musical landscape is littered with pop starlets that come to notoriety and then slowly fade away, but New York’s HΛNΛH has the potential to be around for a while. She has already created a strong buzz with her songs “Out of Touch” and “Hideaway” with a formal release most likely coming in the near future. Today, the restrained latter gets a reworking from Los Angeles producer Shines. The remix blends many of the elements and transitions of the original further adding snapping beats to accentuate the vocal cadence. The result is a sensation of warm waves rushing over you only with a climax towards the end that goes somewhere completely unexpected. Stream both versions below.

Directed by Kahlil Joseph, FKA Twigs has just dropped a new video for her song “Video Girl”. We are not going to attempt to dissect it completely, but you will Twigs and a convict getting lethal injection, then it gets a little interesting with her dancing over his lifeless body. The song comes from her crazy good LP1 out now via Young Turks. Watch below.

I’m excited to share this first track from NZCA LINES material i’ve been working on since the last release. New Atmosphere is an introduction to the world these new tracks inhabit. It’s a love song from the perspective of scientists terraforming a planet, and your own fantasy when you meet someone for the first time. – Michael Lovett

London’s Michael Lovett, known under the name NZCA LINES, has a new limited edition 7″ (also available digitally) on the way via Moshi Moshi Singles Club on December 9th December. The a-side is the synth-heavy, pounding “New Atmosphere”. The track has a spacey new explorer vibe where you feel like you are embarking on a journey encountering some undiscovered terrain in the future. It is prime for repeat plays. Listen below.
