Let your thoughts overwhelm you as you dance your heart out to the newest music from TOKiMONSTA. The dreamy vocals on each track float seamlessly through the electronic production. Lune Rouge, via Young Art Records, is the fifth album for the California based DJ. She’s managed to rack up quite the resume throughout her time in the industry, collaborating with Anderson Paak, MNDR and Kool Keith, to name a few. Get a taste of her new album with “Don’t Call Me” and give into the desire to sway along to the rhythms.
Amidst the many facets of pop music, Swedish singer/songwriter, Frida Sundemo makes standing out look easy. Her vocals tackle an aura of relaxation and cleanse the mind of negativity. Flashbacks & Futures via Cosmos marks the Swedish songstress’ first international debut. Prior to this release, she gained prominence in 2010 with her Japanese only release, Dear, Let It Out. Float away to the rich and beautiful sounds of “Gold,” below. If (and when) you like what you hear, check out the full album.
The Weather Station gives authenticity a new definition, drenching every note with powerful and raw emotion, with their new release from Outside Music. With a skill and ease comparable to Joni Mitchell, lead vocalist, Tamara Lindeman takes the refreshing sound of folk music and makes it even more blissful in the self-titled album, The Weather Station. Throughout the years, the group has seen a variety of members, but the current band consists of Lindeman, Ben Whiteley, Adrian Cook, and Ian Kehoe. Fall into a state of familiar discomfort as you listen to, “Kept It All To Myself.”Enjoy the full album of tracks from the Canadian group here.
