We’re no expert when it comes to the fine tuning of label contracts and the bureaucracy that’s probably involved in the process, but we are glad that Austalian pop phenom Betty Who seems very content with her new return to independent status, and her first single as an indie artist is easily one of our favorite tracks from her in awhile. While Ignore Me has been picking up a lot of acclaim (check out our feature, here), it seems this new arrangement has also afforded the songbird a chance to make a sweet cameo on Dutch producer Don Diablo’s latest soaring dance anthem. Higher takes us on a swift serotonin ascent with its high energy, luscious pumping house, plus its music video is a barrage of amazing animal footage, including some adorable felines. Aside from music, animals and nature are probably my biggest passions. Combined with Don Diablo’s lifting opus and Betty Who’s sonorous vocals, this audio-visual package is pure sensory heaven. So why the critters and creatures? Higher is the title song for a wildlife feature film named Wild Amsterdam, playing in cinemas across Holland right now. Learn more about the film, here. Higher is taken from Don Diablo’s album, FUTURE, released last month and available, here.

Smoke Season is a band from Southern California that offers up a unique amalgamation of genres that crosses indie pop with psychedelic rock, indie electronic, and Americana. It’s a singular sound that can be heard on their latest sensual and hypnotic single Bees, which haunts darkly on verses and explodes in a very Portugal. the Man manner on its driving, hooking chorus. Smoke Season released a new video for the song yesterday, which you can view below, in all its kaleidoscopic glory. I had to miss Smoke Season’s show at Bottom Of The Hill in San Francisco earlier this week, and I’m hoping I’ll get another chance to catch what must be a riveting show soon.
