Pale Blue is the electronic dream-pop project of producer Mike Simonetti (Italians Do It Better). The debut album The Past We Leave Behind was released earlier this week and features collaborations with Jana Hunter (Lower Dens) and Elizabeth Wight (Silver Hands). The album is a lush, cinematic trip through emotions which makes it a perfect soundtrack for the new beginnings of spring.
Honey Owens is best known for her work with The Miracles Club, but she has a very different identity in the guise of Valet. Check out the beautiful new single “Nature”, which serves as the title track from the forthcoming album, due next month on Kranky.
The promising new pop jam “Going Somewhere” by NYC-based Japanese DJ/vocalist Eiko Hara is the latest release from Cascine‘s digital singles sublabel CSCN. Let’s hope there is more where this came from!
Oakland based dark synth-pop artist Vivian Moon, otherwise known as Pastel Ghost, will release her debut lp ABYSS tomorrow on 80’s Ladies Records (also home to previously featured new artist Grave Pool). You can check out the first two singles from the album below. ABYSS is available now for pre-order here.
Grimes has released this great new track from her “lost album”. If this song is any indication, I personally hope she finds it.
“This song was never finished. its a demo from ~ the lost album ~, recorded early 2013. i lost the ableton file, so its not mixed or mastered. i tried to doctor the mp3 into a listenable state, but it was poorly recorded in the first place and never meant to be heard by anyone, so its a bit of a mess haha.”
