Nicholas Nicholas, the musical outlet of Brooklyn-based Chris Masullo has a new LP, Wrong, coming out on August 19th via Miscreant Records. He already revealed the remarkably moving “Meet Me In the Park” and now he has given us another one named “Cave”. The song is a slowly unwinding puzzle of beautiful caliginous tones and patinated new wave sheen. Listen below.

London’s Heavenly Recordings have been on a nice little streak as of late with their roster that includes the likes of Temples, The Wytches, TOY, and more. Their latest addition is a London-based quartet that goes by Kid Wave. Featuring members Harry Deacon, Lea Emmery, Serra Petale, and Mattias Bhatt, their debut single “All I Want” captures the unkempt energy of being young in the ’90s without being derivative. Watch the video for it below.

Fullerton, California’s Gabe Fulvimar aka Gap Dream created some pretty great music on last year’s Shine Your Light. To stay in rhythm, he will be releasing a new split tour single 7″ with Part Time via Burger Records. His contribution is the smoky song “Strong Love” perfect to backdrop a night of skinny dipping in the lake as you lament the fading summer with your friends. Listen wand watch the video below.

Song : Sophie : “Lemonade”

UK producer Sophie came out of nowhere setting the internet ablaze last year with “Bipp” and “Elle”, so it only makes sense that he does the same this summer. Today, he dropped crazy sample-heavy new song “Lemonade”. It has a child-like quality in its appeal (and in its samples), but there is so much more to this sugary, experimental track with every listen. The sounds heard are absolutely insane with dropping bass and revving synths creating sort of a musical maze. It will be out on August 4th via Numbers as a single paired with yet-to-be-heard “Hard”. Listen below.

Video : Yuko Yuko : “Gold”

If you like your music raw and extremely DIY, then you really should get yourself hip to Holland’s Elias Elgersma and his project Yuko Yuko. His latest EP, Babes (stream here), has been a favorite of ours this year. The video for “Gold” is an inexpensive, low visual effects clip as you would expect that borders on random kid uploading a homemade video to youtube. It is playful and slight off center that sort of reminds us of early Wavves or, perhaps, Mac DeMarco. Watch below.

Raised in central New Jersey and Philly, Los Angeles based beatsmith Glen Boothe aka Knxwledge aka Knx just released a new mixtape Hexual Sealings​ ​Pt.​ ​7. You can probably gather from the title the overall vibe of it. If you dig what you hear, we recommend checking out the crazy prolific artist’s Bandcamp for further exploration or grab his Anthology compilation from that year that takes some of the best of his works the past few years and puts it in a more precise form. Expect a more formal release from him later this year through his label Stones Throw. Listen below.
