The post-punk movement of the early ’80s has shown itself to be one of the more resilient eras in music. Every year, their seem to be new bands inflected by its dark-tinged charm. The latest band band showcasing this influence is Copenhagen four-piece Communions and their infectious, lovelorn new song “Out Of My World”. The song comes from their upcoming self-titled EP out on June 2nd on London-based label Tough Love. Listen below.

Video : Yumi Zouma : “Alena”

Last week, we finally got to catch New Zealand’s Yumi Zouma for the first time, unfortunately we did not get to see them at their best to no fault of their own. Two hours prior to the show, the band caught a bad break when some asshole/s stole all of their gear (hit them up if you know anything. Despite this, the band remained the utmost professional and carried with a solid set using the instruments of Madrid band Hinds who played before them. The fact they tried to push through in less than ideal circumstances really gave us even more respect for them than we already had.

Today, the trio continues on in support of their latest great Cascine release, EP II, with the reveal of their new video for “Alena” directed by Allie Avital Tsypin. It depicts a group of men in sort of a support group resulting in a cathartic released by video’s end. Watch below.

We’ve been listening quite a bit to the new album, Pleasure Boy (out March 31st via Bella Union), from NY-based chanteuse Hannah Cohen, but “Baby” was the one track we have been pining to share with the world from it. The song reverts back to the stripped vulnerability that she showcased on her fantastic Child Bride LP from a few years back. It is an absolute stunner that is sure to make the Lana Del Rey comparisons echo even louder. Listen below.

Song : Toro Y Moi : “Run Baby Run”

After dropping the tracks “Empty Nesters” and “Buffalo” from his upcoming new LP, Chaz Bundick aka Toro Y Moi has given the world another solid offering. “Run Baby Run” is the name of it and sort of a late ’60s psychedelic Beatles feel to it in some regard. What For? will be released on April 7 via Carpark Records. Listen below.

Song : Tei Shi : “Go Slow”

Buenos Aires, Argentina born, Brooklyn-based singer Valerie Teicher, aka Tei Shi, since coming into our collective conscious in 2013 with her single “M&Ms” and then really knocking it out of the park with “Bassically” at the end of last year. April 14th will see the release of her new EP, Verde, via Mermaid Avenue, but before that happens, she has shared another extremely infectious song titled “Go Slow” from it to infiltrate our ears. Stream it below.

If you have followed the journey of Oakland’s Astronauts, etc., the project led by sometimes Toro Y Moi keyboardist Anthony Ferraro, you might have seen a band still trying to explore their limits sonically. Their latest offering “I Know” finally sees the band fine tuning the blue-eyed soul elements of past material mixing in more of an organic, late-’70s, dare we say yacht-rock vibe to pretty exceptional results. Hopefully, this is a sign of things to come from them. Listen below.
