Cole Anyway- Days Off/ On Hold
Cole Anyway is the stage name Los Angeles resident Cole Emoff employs for his cinematic, convention-defying pop. As Cole Anyway, he creates an enveloping trance, drawing equally on lush old lounge records and the smooth, soft sounds of the 1970s, then breaking his chill with appealingly disorienting effects. Cole Anyway takes unexpected turns in arrangements and execution, a gift showcased on the new double A-side single “Days Off“/”On Hold” — a pair of songs equally beguiling in their melodies and vibe.

Hot Buttered Rum- No Reason Why
Like a long, dark piece of music, the pandemic started small, then got big, and loud, and painfully dissonant. Hot Buttered Rum did their best to cope with its indignities, as most did, and much of that coping was done through the business of making lots and lots of noise. The songs that emerged from all this noise-making are a little louder than any the band has released to date in what became the latest album, Shine All Night. Hot Buttered Rum hopes to help provide some cheer in the times ahead, whether those times are brighter, darker or, as so often, somewhere in between.

Sampling 3LW’s 2000 hit ‘No More (Baby I’ma Do Right)’, ‘Looking At Your Pager’ received praise from NPR, Pitchfork, Billboard, The Fader, and more for the unique duality of its modern club-oriented production and throwback R&B sample.

Mad Anthony- Rina
Cincinnati, OH-based rock band Mad Anthony — the musical project of John K. Schwab, Larry Doston, and Carl “Mad Anthony” Richards — made a name for themselves in their local scene in the 70s, and in 1975, the group sat down and recorded a handful of tracks which proceeded to sit untouched for over forty years. Eventually, the recording did reach the ears of an important listener: Schwab’s son, Benjamin Schwab, now a musician himself with the bands Drugdealer and Sylvie, the latter of which takes direct influence from his father’s band. And after seven or so years of Ben’s convincing, the elder Schwab and his bandmates decided it was time to return to the project, thus, introducing the release of those previously unearthed ‘75 demos as The Lost Tapes (due Spring 2023, via Earth Libraries).

Marvel Years- Voyage Ahead Pt. I
When the early days of the pandemic deprived Marvel Years of his refuge of live performance, the creative polymath decided to use lockdown to reinvigorate his love for studio songwriting and refine the Marvel Years sound. The result of this reflection was the concept for Voyage Ahead, a sprawling, thematic listening journey that takes fans into Marvel Years‘ exciting new sonic ventures.
That journey now begins with Voyage Ahead Pt.1, the first part of a two-part EP series and a collection of songs that emulates the jubilation of live performance in electronic music. On Voyage Ahead Pt. 1, Marvel Years goes beyond just live guitar recordings by playing each instrumental element himself in places where he would have used samples. This process results in a studio EP that recreates the Marvel Years live sound from a time when he couldn’t actually perform, thus bringing out the artist’s most innovative work yet and showcasing the immense possibilities of what Marvel Years can be.

Noah Cyrus- Every Beginning Ends
Noah Cyrus continues to tease her forthcoming debut album, The Hardest Part, with a duet alongside Death Cab For Cutie’s Benjamin Gibbard titled ‘Every Beginning Ends,’ a spectacularly subtle and heart wrenching country ballad detailing the demise of a tired romance. Recorded in Seattle at Benjamin’s studio, their call-and-response details of a dwindling love further cements Cyrus as one of the best songwriters of her generation. Described as “one of the most pulverizing moments on the album” by Rolling Stone Magazine, Noah explains on this collaboration: “That was such a surreal experience. I’ve always been such a huge fan, so it was pretty daunting to get in the room with him, but once we got to work it all came very naturally.” She continues, “we talked about past relationships, failed relationships, our parents’ relationships, and relationships that have lasted forever. He told me his dad has a saying: ‘you have to wake up and choose to love someone every day,’ and it sparked this conversational song about the twilight of a relationship and the reluctance to admit that something has run its course. I relate to that in many ways, not only with me, but also just with my parents’ relationship. Writing about that gave me more understanding.”
Oliver Sim- GMT (Jamie xx Remix)
Oliver Sim and Jamie xx—producer of Sim’s highly anticipated debut solo album Hideous Bastard—continue their longstanding creative partnership with the release of a rare Jamie xx remix. Jamie has only ever released a handful of official remixes (for the likes of Radiohead, Adele, Four Tet and Florence + the Machine) and, on his first remix in over five years, he stretches the Brian Wilson-sampling original into a near ten-minute dancefloor epic. Featuring additional production from Floating Points, it’s been a highlight of Jamie’s recent shows around the world.
One South Lark- Pop Star
Our upcoming EP “‘Till September” captures the fleeting nostalgia of a summer gone too soon. Our inspiration on this project ranged from the new wave music of The Cure to the pop-poetry of Taylor Swift, creating a unique retro-yet-modern sound. We wrote it while in our junior year of college, but all at separate universities. Songwriting sessions full of lyrical brainstorming were held over Zoom and voice memos containing jangly guitar riffs and Beach Boys-inspired harmonies were iMessaged back and forth. In our few breaks from school, we hustled to Bogalusa, Louisiana, and recorded the five tracks at Studio In The Country. We spent hours in the secluded swamp studio with our sound engineer Ben Mumphrey perfecting the indie pop sound we were going for. With only three members, we created and produced every sound heard on the record, often playing more than one instrument each. The result is a project we’re proud to say is our best work yet, from the atmospheric power of the overdriven guitar in “Malibu” to the danceable Motown beat of “Wasting My Time.”

The song and it’s accompanying video debuted today at WhiteLight//WhiteHeat.
Paper Pools- Portraits
“This song was inspired by a psychedelic experience I had during the COVID lockdown. The title, “Portraits,” alludes to a friend of mine. She’s a wonderful painter, and we did mushrooms together. It was one of the more visionary experiences I’ve had. It wasn’t like anything I encountered during my childhood. So much organized religion, and especially Jehovah’s Witnesses, is formal and structured. What my friend and I experienced was more like a journey. There was a moment when I thought the two of us were twins in a womb. It felt like we had traveled from birth to death. Then there were other times when I was basically looking down upon myself. It was intense. I know I didn’t actually experience these things, yet they felt very real and turned out to be deeply meaningful.” -Allen Orr
Pauline Herr, TWERL, Addicted- Distance

Peter Matthew Bauer- 21st Century Station
“21st Century Station” is the final single from Peter Matthew Bauer’s forthcoming record Flowers before it’s out September 23rd.
“21st Century Station” was conceived as an early 60s ska hit, playing through a radio tower as panic takes the streets in our present day. It sounds just like that — with broken pianos and guitars, congas, bombastic drums, a bunch of otherworldly backup singers, and a reverberating lead vocal by Peter, leading the way through a wild and joyous 3 and a half minutes. The track was produced and mixed by Peter Matthew Bauer & Matt Barrick.

RAYE- Black Mascara
South London-based RAYE today returns with a pulsating and emotional new single ‘Black Mascara‘.
Written by RAYE and produced by Punctual (Will Lansley and John Morgan), ‘Black Mascara‘ sees trauma unpacked steadily over a hypnotic dance beat anchored by real pain. RAYE explains, “This song is about another story that has contributed to my ‘blues’. I used the juxtaposition of an upbeat dance track to tell this awful story of being misled by someone I really loved and trusted. While it was a dark low moment, it was also cathartic for me.”
Sam Feldt, David Solomun- Future In Your Hands feat. Aloe Blacc
DJ/Producers Sam Feldt and David Solomon team up for an uplifting, end-of-summer single, “Future In Your Hands feat. Aloe Blacc.” The track features a stunning vocal performance by Grammy-nominated singer Aloe Blacc, well known for his globally charting singles “Wake Me Up” and “The Man.” Solomon has rapidly built a reputation for delivering quality dance music, and this collaboration between him and the multi-platinum Feldt is the perfect way to cap off a celebration-filled summer.
Shingo Nakamura- Falling Off
Japan’s leading melodic house producer, Shingo Nakamura, made his anticipated return to Monstercat today with the new atmospheric offering, “Falling Off.” Inspired to create a song that would combat mental distress and depression, he looked to the genre’s uplifting sounds of the 2000s, citing foundational classics that take shape in his piano chords and bright melodies.
Slander- Before Dawn

“A Slushii Summer” continues with this week’s single, “Smoke.” A divine mixture of indie pop vocals, and Slushii’s danceable productions – “Smoke” is the type of song you want to play in the car with the windows down, on your way to the beach. A tale of an inconsistent lover, “Smoke” paints a picture of a girl who is sometimes here, sometimes smoke.
Skip Marley- Jane
Two-time GRAMMY® Award nominated songwriter and musician Skip Marley returns with a brand new single titled ‘Jane’ featuring Nigerian-based Afropop sensation Ayra Starr.

The accompanying DIY music video sees her enveloped by the elements on her native Vancouver Island, furthering her personal connection to the song. Written about a divine being sent to Earth to love and protect unconditionally, only she felt she could tell the story through song, signaling the beginning of more WHIPPED CREAM vocals to come.
xndr.- no mia
