Off of his forthcoming third studio album, Sondelrust, which is due out September 16 via Joyful Noise, “I Can’t Let Go, Juno” from Kishi Bashi is the composer and multi-instrumentalist’s most intimate and artistically adventurous release to date.
Draped in hook-laden falsettos, buzzing synths, haunting string melodies, and infectious backbeats, this track takes things well beyond the orchestral pop sound of Bashi’s previous releases and opens the sonic floodgates in the process.

“Hard Potential” is the latest from Portland, Oregon three-piece Lubec. While sonically reminiscent of acts like Sonic Youth and Broken Social Scene, this tune also reveals the band’s penchant for somewhat illogical song structures that defy and bend the parameters of traditional pop.
