Out courtesy of 4AD, you can find streaming links for it right here.
Polymnia is the title of the forthcoming debut LP from Bristol, England’s Sailing Stones, and you can preview its “Receive” — a pastoral, analog apparition, above.

It’s so many different things, but always one — its vision clear and its sense of purpose deep. “Talk” is the quietly-charismatic and deep-grooved brand-new single from London’s Amaroun. You can find streaming links for the track right here, and she has plans for monthly releases throughout the year.
Together Oslo, Norway’s Jenny Marie Sabel and Eirik Vildgre are Konradsen, and “The Year Is Over” is their kindly-opulent brand-new single. The track is taken from their forthcoming Rodeo No. 5 EP. Out from May 5th courtesy of Cascine, you can pre-order 12″-vinyl and digital editions of it right now from the band’s Bandcamp page.
Its dynamics see-sawing between gauzy swirls and gripping, distortion-fueled release, “Orchid” is the scorching latest single from Auckland, New Zealand’s Miss June.

A rippling reflection, it shifts shapes then each one drifts. They’re liquid, growing smaller and vanishing. You’d love for them to return, but you’re happy for them and their journey. “March 1st” is a saturated Super 8 film in a dream and the warming brand-new single from L.A.’s Esbie Fonte. You can stream the track on Apple Music and on her Soundcloud page now.
An artfully-warm and outgoing homage, the soaring track was recorded in Canowindra, Australia, her late grandmother’s lifelong hometown. “Sandwiches” is the moving, lucidly-caught brand-new single from Sydney’s Sophie Payten, a.k.a. Gordi. You can find assorted streaming and download links for this track right here.
Two of Me is the title of the forthcoming concept album from L.A.’s Momma, and above you can hear its “Double Dare” — a languid intoxicant whose honeyed melodies hide depth and subtle menace. The album is out care of Danger Collective on June 5th. You can pre-order milky-clear-translucent-vinyl, cassette, CD and bundled editions of it either from their webstore or from the band’s Bandcamp page right now.
Fluidly tuneful as cranked guitars crunch, “Suck Up” is the powerful and uplifting brand-new single from L.A.’s talker.
