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.

Song : Ariel Pink : “Black Ballerina”

Ariel Pink follows up “Put Your Number In My Phone” with this fantastic new cut “Black Ballerina”. It holds that quintessential Ariel Pink quirkiness. While it just dropped, we know this one is going to stick in the rotation for a while. It might be our favorite from him since “Round and Round”. The song will appear on his upcoming new double-LP, pom pom, out on November 18th via 4AD. Listen below.

Song : Suixx : “Hi”

Suixx is the moniker taken by Sydney’s Sarah Jullienne. Her latest song, titled “Hi”, is what we imagine it would sound like if Tame Impala and Beach House hooked up and mixed their sonic aesthetics. The song is just another example on how Australia has been killing it lately with its musical exports. Expect it to appear on her forthcoming debut EP slated sometime in the very near future, possibly before the end of the year. Stream below.

FKA Twigs is an artist in the truest since, not only in music, but also using visuals and dancing as an outlet. Today, she revealed a new concept film titled #throughglass that sees her drawing inspiration from choreography inspirations she’s searched for using Google Glass, also using the device in filming. It is soundtracked using reworked versions of her songs “Video Girl” and “Glass & Patron”. Calling it captivating would be an understatement. Watch below.
