We have been telling you to look out for LA-based Misun for a while now. After what has been too long of a wait, they have announced the debut album Superstitions slated for November 11th. To go along with the announcement, they have offered up the title track, which might be there most accessible to date. From the first beat, the song hits you with a kaleidoscope of synths and vocal hooks by frontwoman Misun Wojcik. Having had the pleasure of seeing them live, you can easily see that she has the it factor to take this band far. Stream below.

Following the songs “Death Is Not For Us” and “Spirit Away”, Sweden’s Korallreven share magical new song “Limitless”. It appears on their forthcoming new LP, Second Comin’, set to release on November 4th via Cascine. The weightless feelings it invokes bring sensations of flying over the most serene and awe-inspiring landscapes taking you all the way to Neverland and the most innocent times of your youth. The song might be our favorite from album. Stream below.

Song : Ghost Loft : “Be Easy”

Danny Choi, aka Ghost Loft, was the creator of one of our favorite tracks last year with “So High”. The elusive producer is back after a break letting us know that not everything is a big deal and, sometimes, you just need to “Be Easy”. The song has that shadowy feel to like his previous songs, but hits with a little more urgency. Hopefully, this signals a proper EP or LP from him in the coming months. You can watch the video or stream the song by itself below.

Song : Blue Hawaii : “Get Happy”

Montreal’s Blue Hawaii are streaming a new song “Get Happy” and a double-time edit of the song they have dubbed “Get Happier”. According to the pair, the song has existed since the beginning of the year, but got lost in the shuffle of moving and touring. The original is more softer in presentation, while the edit creates more of a chaotic mood. It is a nice contrast. Stream both below.

BBC radio’s Zane Lowe has recently undertaken the lofty task of giving an alternate take to the impeccable Drive Soundtrack called Radio One Rescores: Drive – Curated By Zane Lowe. While we in no way believe that the original is in need of being redone, it does bring the opportunity to hear new stuff from the likes of Foals, SBTRKT, BANKS, Jon Hopkins, among others, and this song from CHVRCHES titled “Get Away”. While it doesn’t have some of the soaring moments of some of the songs on their debut, it still is always nice to have a new tune from the Glasgow trio. Stream below.
