Micropixie’s “Como Mínimo” Video

San Francisco’s Micropixie creates spacey warm sounds with a sixties French psych pop feel. It’s a multilingual, multi-genre listening experience addressing social norms, masculinity, and gender and cultural identity. The video for “Como Mínimo” is a captivating and thought-provoking viewing experience that we recommend. Singles have been sprinkling out of upcoming album Dark Sight of the Moon and we’re bracing ourselves for the full release this week. Out April 26. - Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor





NTHNL's introspective and exploratory new single "Away We Go"

Music doesn’t have to be confrontational, hammering away or building tension, in order to convey to the listener a sense of gratification. NTHNL has chosen a path of escapism rather than digging into gritty details on “Away We Go,” opting for broad synths and effervescent vocals that lift the track to a headspace that is both introspective and exploratory. Drifting up and down doesn’t mean the production is aimless, however; the seemingly skeletal nature of the song traces the miniature climaxes that occur with every chorus. It’s a delightful soundscape, perfunctory yet powerful. “Away We Go” is the second single off NTHNL’s upcoming album and you can stream it below. –Tucker Pennington

New Track: "Cinderella" - Instupendo

Aidan Peterson, a.k.a. Instupendo, recently shared a new single “Cinderella,” featured on the forthcoming EP Boys by Girls (due out on June 5). Establishing an elegant atmosphere of contemplation, the first person narrative swims in a placid, confessional composition. However, while the song appears to come from the point of view of a hesitant admirer, protective instincts are also voiced/revealed. Hovering between a daydreaming ideal and the hope that it translates into a reality, one waits to see how the story plays out.
