The pulsing, free-flowing rhythms on “Kindness, Calmness” parallel the song’s buoyant vocals in mood if not in genre. In fact, the melding of electronic beats with lounge-y vocals leads to an overall effect that’s mildly jarring.

But lovely.

“Kindness, Calmness” is the second single from Novelty Daughter’s forthcoming LP Inertia (out November 3). There’s an almost strangeness to ...

Brooklyn based producer Esseks (Sam Eckstein) brings a distinctive flavor of electronica to his latest EP release, “Broken Bones” (Sticks & Stones).

The EP is divided in two: Five tracks under “Sticks.” Five tracks under “Stones.” This concept plays nicely. The “Stones” tracks are tonally “heavier” than the rest of the EP. 

At times, “Broken Bones” almost feels like ...

Cru the Dynamic (aka Steve Bryant) drops “New Things” on Detroit-based label Heavy Young Souls. There’s start & stop breakbeats. There’s hip-hop and drum & bass. Both genres intersect at the true core of Bryant’s influences: jazz performance. The fusion is soulful and assured. Cru weaves his influences skillfully. The end result is really beautiful. -juan leon

Beshken’s inventive chill wave-esque melodies on “Force of Evil” show off a virtuoso kind of buoyancy that can be felt in every stutter step backbeat. “Faceless,” his 2016 track with 20-year-old singer Gus Dapperton, might be even better. There’s a lightness and poignancy to Beshken’s arrangements that gels thrillingly with Dapperton’s dreamy vocals. –juan leon

Eric Copeland (also a member of Black Dice) just dropped his latest record, “Goofballs,” today. Copeland’s exploration of the dance genre is dazzling on “Goofballs.” “Neckbone” is a standout deconstruction and homage to the techno genre. “Close Encounters” cycles through tones, moods, genres, and rhythms but never falters. The names may be silly but the tracks bang. ...

What immediately comes through in a cursory survey of No Regular Play’s catalogue is a love for the jazz and hip-hop influences the DJ/production duo proudly claim. A Tribe Called Quest and Miles Davis can clearly be heard as influences, in deconstructed form, throughout the group’s single “Hear You Sing.” In fact, Rudists’ remix of “Hear You ...

Discwoman collective artist Bearcat’s wild, aggressive sampling of divergent styles and rhythms (from dembow to spoken word) in her work as producer and DJ is a mode of expression so potent and unique it feels like a sonic diaspora. As a DJ, and like all great djs, her mixes aren’t simply beats mixed into other beats with the aim ...

Brooklyn-based Sapphogeist’s Mar-a-Logo (released on BANK Records NYC) is a dreamy, evocative, and potent shout of electronica/dreampop that transcends the obvious political allusion in the record’s title. Standout track “Holding On” anchors an album chock full of sensuous and hazy sonic mysteries. It’s like a trip through the maze of a real pumping heart — translucent and bloody. ...

Emo. Traumacore. These are two of the labels attached to MALLRAT as tags on their Bandcamp page. It sounds kind of depressing. But beneath their gnarly, stripped down, heavy-heavy-soft sound is a transcendent – almost bubbly – joyousness that’s bursting with sonic life. The band’s playful tweets give an insight into a playful, humane sensibility that blooms throughout ...
