Mansions on the Moon | Soundcloud

Since they were featured in Benzi and Diplo‘s Paradise Falls mixtape, MOTM has held a special place in my heart for one of my favourite late night driving tracks: ‘Satellite’. I still get goosebumps cruising empty highways to it.

The good news is they’re coming out with a self-titled LP on October 22nd. The first single, ‘Don’t Tell’, is just as perfect as I’d hoped it to be. It’s a blend of indie-electronic dance pop that elicits nothing but a lighthearted wave of summery dreams about that night you can’t quite remember but will never forget. Download it free and take it for a test drive (literally).

GirlsOnDrugs

UK duo GirlsOnDrugs (Luke Lount & Kat McHugh) have got me all out of sorts. The dark and industrial vibe is driving me deep. There’s a growing space in my head.

The droning bass is reverberating off the walls. Wistful.
The whining synth leaves behind echoed streaks like neon on water.
The yearning vocals promise there’s more.

I feel like I’m shooting through Tron. Destination: anywhere.

Everywhere.

Apolline d’Ash

Electronica gets spaced out thanks to Apolline d’Ash (Fabien Dalzin and Adrien Larouzée). Much like the psychic rhythms of HVOB or Recondite, this French duo’s fragile galactic sounds have guided us across the universe of our minds and back.

Washed Out | Buy Paracosm

Ernest Greene has used his second full-length release opportunity to shift to a more organic sound. He has incorporated antique instruments to re-envision the nebulous music we’ve grown to love à la Life of Leisure and Within and Without. While Paracosm has decidedly ambient and psychedelic leanings due to the lessened presence of electronic beat samples, it does maintain Greene’s dreamy and buoyant vocations. Check after the jump for songs and videos!

POSTILJONEN

POSTILJONEN are Swedes Daniel Sjörs, Joel Nyström Holm, and Norwegian Mia Bøe. Their music is a tribute to escaping the buzz and pausing for a spell of daydreaming. Like M83 or Sigur Ros, their sound is best classified as ambient shoegaze or dream-pop. The soaring soundscapes partner perfectly with cerebral repose. Even better: they film positively captivating music videos. Their debut Skyer comes out on July 22 through Best Fit Recordings. Stream it for free here.

Guy/gal duo Memoryhouse compose the sort of lovely aesthetic that is easy to fall asleep to. With an EP and a full length album to date, the music they’ve released has a faded, timeworn appeal that feels like drowning in an old picture. But there is a crisp modernity to it, too, that makes it current and addicting. Delicate vocals amongst chillwave ambient melodies, they construct their own vision of the world. Their music is really beautiful. They have been on tour with Washed Out and their music really does fit in well with his sound.

For fans of: Beach House, Best Coast, Washed Out
