Artist: FKA Twigs
FKA Twigs is back after over three years with an extraordinarily special piece of art. Cellophane is a stunning minimalist track with intimate, expressive vocals and an otherworldly touch in the production.
Artist: Local Natives
Song: Tap Dancer
Album: Violet Street
A cinematic track with interesting instrumentation, and a sensitive, expansive sound. I had to watch the music video twice in a row because it was so cool. Gorgeous lyrics only add to the impact, this is music you can feel in your chest.
This huge track has intimate vocals and solid production with an explosive chorus.
Artist: Evan Konrad
Song: Come On Snake, Let’s Rattle
This track has powerful vocals and a distorted alternative sound with an undeniable pop sensibility.
Artist: Petrol Girls
Song: Big Mouth
Album: Cut and Stitch
I love the rebellious energy of this track. You can find it on this feminist post-hardcore band’s forthcoming LP Cut & Stitch, which is due out on May 24th.
