I was crestfallen when I was out of town in November and couldn’t catch Bridgit Mendler the night she played a sold out Popscene alongside Hayley Kiyoko, but the good news is that I’ve been presented with another chance to see her on April 7th when she returns with POWERS. I don’t know about you, but I haven’t been able to get the LA singer songwriter’s Atlantis out of my head since last fall. That song, which features rising Florida hip hop star Kaiydo, is now at the receiving end of some remix bedazzlement, courtesy of Berlin’s Max Liese. Kaiydo certainly gets highlighted on this crisp jouncing remix, and it’s a more than welcome alternate approach on one of 2016′s most memorable gems. The remix is a free download, here.

There’s something about modulated harmonies that melt me into pieces, or so I’ve realized from my love of songs like Cazzette’s Sleepless, or Bridgit Mendler’s Atlantis, featuring Kaiydo. The Los Angeles singer songwriter’s gem of a tune has been enchanting me over and over again these past two months. Now, we get to sway to our hearts’ content to a fresh new remix of that song by Germany’s Class & Clowns. The duo gives the track a downtempo soothing melodic bass and atmospheric quivering chillstep edit brimming with honeyed tenderness. You can grab the remix for free, here.

When I hear the name Atlantis, I think of a magical world, hidden and lost in the depths of a great ocean. Intensely colored sea creatures dart to and fro while magical artifacts shimmer from underneath the sand. It’s rather romantic and picturesque, come to think of it. We’re taken into that sweet wondrous world by Los Angeles singer songwriter Bridgit Mendler as she serenades us with her chill effervescent blanket of future pop, mellow hip hop, and candied R&B on new single, Atlantis, which also features Florida hip hop talent Kaiydo on tranquil rap vocals. We dive into the deep sea, lured by the watery churning and atmospheric serenity of this halcyon lullaby. Atlantis can be purchased from iTunes. Bridgit Mendler will be releasing a debut EP named Nemesis on November 4th.

Seafret –  Atlantis

March 27, 2015

UK duo Seafret’s music is of the kind that reels me in immediately, with emotive tenderness and bittersweet beauty. Many fell under the spell of their prior gems, Give Me Something and Oceans. Get ready to fall again for their new single Atlantis, a moving blend of cinematic indie rock and earthy acoustics. The duo are currently on a headline tour and previously supported Hozier, James Bay, George Ezra, and many more. Atlantis will be out May 11th on Sweet Jane Recordings. I have a feeling Seafret’s going to have a stellar rest of the year.

I’ve been zealously on the Postiljonen train since I first stumbled upon their M83-like, soaring Supreme back in April. The synthpop trio hails from both Sweden and Norway and they’re starting to garner some well deserved attention. They have a debut album named Skyer dropping soon, and they previewed this wonderful, GLORIOUS tune from the album named Atlantis. It’s nearly impossible not to compare the track to M83 also, with its synthy chillwavey super summer vibe and, most of all, with the endearing horns. For those missing M83, this might fill in that hole in your heart for now. It’s an intoxicating Balearic track. Check out Supreme again below, though I’ve shared it a multitude of times already!

Though I haven’t had a chance to listen to new album Miracle Mile from start to finish just yet, all of the songs I’ve listened to on the internetz have been jaw dropping good. I’ll reserve my final judgement for once I’ve really sat down and listened to the full album as it was intended to be listened to, but I must say, it seems Starfucker has outdone themselves on their 3rd studio album! The Portland indie pop act released a video for Miracle Mile track Atlantis today. It’s one of the more downtempo tracks of the album and at times almost reminds me of chilled out Phoenix (with perhaps a touch of chilled out Empire of the Sun). The electronic synthiness and beats are kept minimal on this one. Oh, and by the way, thanks again, Stfkr and Polyvinyl Records for the Airheads that came with my pre-order! That was a random little surprise! What flavors did everyone else get? I can’t say I loved the pink lemonade flavor I received, though I’m usually pretty fond of Airheads. Wanna send me another one, Starfucker? 😉

OFFICIAL VID: Azealia Banks – Atlantis

November 12, 2012

Rapping hipster queen Azealia Banks has a new video for us this week for a song off her Fantasea release. Here’s Atlantis, and it’s some colorful and CGI filled fun. In fact, it totally made reminded me of that Rihanna SNL video that I just watched yesterday where they used a green screen to transform the whole stage into a special effects filled, trippy visual extravaganza. Some were complaining it looked like a Windows 98 screensaver, but I thought it was amazeballs cool and can only imagine how mind blowing it was live. This Atlantis video pretty much rides on the same style of visuals. Screensaver? Sure!

If y’all missed the Rihanna performance over the weekend and have noooo idea what I’m babbling about above, here it is…
