We finally had the pleasure of meeting and catching live the lovely ladies of Madrid’s Hinds while down at SXSW a couple of weeks ago. Their set was easily one of the best we saw down there and it was really enjoyable to hear some new tracks that presumably will be on their debut LP we assume we will get later this year. One of those unreleased songs was “San Diego” for which we have a video of them performing for our London friend’s over at Black Lab Sessions. As always, the girl’s likable and fun personalities draw you in immediately. Watch below.

Long-running Mira Billotte-led New York psych-folk project White Magic has a new four-song EP out on Leaving Records. On it, they cover the song “I’m Hiding My Nightingale” by The Inner Space, an early name of the band better known as Can. This version is more stripped than the original with Billotte sweetly singing over a singular electric guitar being played by none other than Ariel Pink. It is quite gorgeous and moving. The EP is available now via cassette with a 10″ vinyl and digital coming this summer. Listen below.

With the elusive Jai Paul nowhere in sight, fellow Londoner Ben Khan has been filling in place of his absence quite nicely with his own take of gritty future funk. On May 11th, he will unload his second EP in as many years titled 1000 via his own Blessed Vice label. We already heard the very solid title track, now we get the even better song “Zenith”. Give it a spin below.

We are still awaiting an announcement of the promised debut LP from London producer Tourist, but as long as he keep dropping great singles like this new song “Holding On”, we won’t have to wait too impatiently. It was premiered as the hottest record in the world on Annie Mac’s Radio 1 program and, as you can imagine at this point, has some pretty on-point production. To really bring it full-circle, he enlists Josef Salvet and Niia for vocals. Listen below.

Song : No Joy : “Everything New”

It is always nice when Montreal’s No Joy are in the fold and we get just that with the announcement of their third LP titled More Faithful out via Mexican Summer on June 8th. According to the press release, the this album looking to “expose them a little bit more as people” by offering more “vulnerability’ in their song crafting. Production for the album was done by musician Jorge Elbrecht, who might be best known for his work with Ariel Pink with recording taking place Brooklyn studio Gary’s Electric and an old farmhouse in Costa Rica to get the band isolation from the outside world. Their first single from “Everything New” seems to support the recording process with its intimate qualities and overexposed day haze feel. Listen below.
