Seattle’s Childbirth is the band made up of Julia Shapiro of Chastity Belt, Bree McKenna of Tacocat, and Stacy Peck of Pony Time. The trio will release their sophomore LP, Women’s Rights, on October 2nd via Suicide Squeeze. While first single “Nasty Girls” had some scuzzy goodness about it, but “Let’s Be Bad” has us hooked with straggling punk composition and easy-to-remember anthemic chorus. Listen below.

LA’s Diva Dompé aka Diva has her new album, Divinity in Thee, coming out next week on August 28th through Stones Throw imprint Circle Star Records.

No song may follow the previous sentence more than album opener “Satori” flawlessly marrying an eccentric blend of funk, R&B and electronic elements presented in a manner that is accessible, yet surprising in construction.

Premiere: Listen to Sui Zhen’s New Song “Dear Teri”

Sui Zhen, the shortened stage name Melbourne-based Becky Sui Zhen has taken us on journey into her world vibrant pastel-painted visuals and offbeat music over the last year. Next week, on August 28th, she will be releasing her new LP, Secretly Susan, via Dot Dash/Remote Control. To date, we have heard the hazy, blissful “Infinity Street” and minimalistic-produced song of regret “Take It All Back.” Today, we are pleased to share with you new song “Dear Teri.” The track is an effervescent turn from previous material showcasing her versatility as a artist with jazzy-flairs of guitar weaving underneath enchanting, lounge-styled vocals.

“Dear Teri is one of my favourite songs on the album. It’s a love song dedicated to friendship and the unspoken exchanges that occur between two people. I wanted to encapsulate my appreciation for the subtle gestures of care and thoughtfulness and the unconscious generosity that there seems to be an endless pool of, for some special people within your lifetime. Teri is also the singer of Le Butcherettes and Bosnian Rainbows. At the time of writing this song, it was part of a letter-song exchange we had going on over email. We’ve been close since meeting in London for the Red Bull Music Academy back in 2010. We’ve continued a romantic friendship ever since to help each other keep our big dreams alive. Teri, this ones for you.” – Sui Zhen

Toronto duo Prince Innocence have been on a slow trajectory up for the last two to three years pulling dreamy atmospherics into dark corners. Their latest offering is the brooding, sharp-cutting “Manic” touching upon, according to group, the “experience of hypomania and the emergence from a depressive episode” and characterized as one of their “most sexually-charged songs.” Give it a spin below and look out for the track on a yet-to-be-announced EP coming in the very near future.
