JAHKOY – “Still In Love”

André da LobaLook & Listen! // Visual Artist: André da Loba [via]

Catch a whiff of her perfume in the air. See the scarf she used to wear on another person. See a city you once visited together in a movie. It can happen anywhere at any time and the realization that you are still desperately still in love will hit you like a ton of bricks. JAHKOY is not making that feeling any easier to handle with this sultry sex jam that will literally turn the world around you into one big reminder of the nights you no longer have. The only thing to do is dim the lights and use JAHKOY to make some new memories to push out the old.  Read more

On Planets – “Spectacle” Ft. Maddie Duke

Anne Ten DonkelaarArtist: Anne Ten Donkelaar [via]

“Spectacle” is a beautifully weird collection of sonic bursts and burps that set the ever evolving stage for Maddie Duke’s fragile yet forceful voice to dance and weave through. The kind of song you should only listen to with headphones if you are fully ready to be consumed.

Tep No – “Karma, You Got Owned”

In case you have been living under a rock, the seasons are changing and the weather is warming and its time to give the middle finger to winter and break out the aloe vera lotion and patio furniture. Sunbathe accordingly.

Young Empires – “The Gates”

Running into this new Young Empires jam on the internet is like running into that girl from Middle School that you had a crush on and you are like “Damn, you grew up! I mean you were always cute and awesome but this is like woah, yeah, adult!” Except that with “The Gates” you don’t have to sound so much like a goob and can just hit repeat and give that reaction a second try.

P.S. SO excited for new Young Empires. #gocanada

THE GATES

[PREMIERE] Coleman Hell – “Thumbalina”

thumbalina

Sounds like… recent TBE fave Coleman Hell wants you to save your Monday coffee money for another day. “Thumbalina” is a rowdy jolt of a jump-on-the-couch love song that is the perfect start to a hazy day. There is something about Coleman’s slightly raspy croon that is silk to my ears. When set against “Thumbalina”‘s bounce of keys and percussion it makes for a damn fine Sprintime anthem I feel I will have on repeat for days, if not weeks to come.

Location: Toronto, Canada

Future: Enough singles, lets get a full album!

HUMANS – “TELL ME”

Music for… drunkenly bringing an empty coffee tin and a weird hat to the club. The hat is just to help you get loose. The coffee tin is for singing your woes into as you dance along to the fuzzed out electronic funk of Humans. Bonus points if you get a caffeine buzz off the fumes.

Location: Vancouver, Canada

Future: New album Noontide dropped yesterday.

Young Empires – “So Cruel”

Sounds like… loooong time TBE favorites Young Empires have not been fking around in the downtime since their epic dance rock debut Wake All My Youth. “So Cruel” is a bit more stripped back and raw than we have heard them but I love the evolution.

Location: Toronto, Canada

Future: Keep your fingers crossed for a full LP to follow this single release.

Coleman Hell – “Take Me Up” + “2 Heads”

You’re healin’ me with helium!

Music for… getting in touch with your inner rhyme-slinger and rapping along with Coleman’s seemingly accessible delivery. But after 10 or 12 jumps on the couch while belting and full volume you realize you don’t have the stamina or flow for these kinds of hyper funky grooves and sit down to catch your breath. Its ok, leave this shit to the pros. And Coleman is certainly that. Just get into the massive folk/funk grooves of “2 Heads” below. Like if Milky Chance ran into Basement Jaxx at Bonnaroo and recorded right there in the campsite.

Location: Toronto, Canada

Future: Catch your breath. Then catch up on Coleman at his Soundcloud.

Tobias Jesso Jr – “True Love”

tobias-jesso-jr

Sounds like… the tenderest moment you have ever had set to the tenderest striped back piano melody sung by a voice that you could have sworn was the one in your head. Its a beautiful thing that strikes you right in the heart.

Location: Vancouver, Canada

Future: Debut album Goon is out next month but get into the slightlier more fleshed out, but no less heartbreaking, “How Could You Babe” below. And take a gander at 6’7″ Tobias.
