If you didn’t catch this news over the weekend, I can assure you, you’re in for a double Monday treat, courtesy of Los Angeles’ Michl, whom we’ve been enamored with for the past several years. Our experiences catching the artist live have only added to our fervor. Michl, who last surprised us by teaming up with production luminary Mura Masa on Better With You, has unleashed a thoroughly bewitching new song named I’d Do It Again.  The dreamy waltzing, lushly glistering ballad carries the intricacy of Fyfe, with Michl leading  us through his sonic garden with contemplative vocals. Alongside the new song also comes Michl’s first-ever music video, a three-part short film titled ‘datum’ featuring two previously freleased songs (Better With You and Out Of Order). The film was co-directed by Michl with Sean Hollihan, and it peels back yet more layers of Michl’s story as an artist. “The entire film was shot in my hometown of Riverside, CA. In the same home, same streets, same local grocery store,“ said Michl of his debut video. "Most would consider Riverside an uninspiring city, but somehow I always had big aspirations. By subtly placing high fashion within the context of my hometown, we were able to re-create that dreamlike optimism I had growing up.” Watch ‘datum’ below. New song I’d Do It Again can also be streamed via Spotify, here.

Lately, Mura Masa has been surprising us by taking the role of producer behind some of our favorite artists’ new songs. His latest such work sees him crafting an intricate future bass soundscape for long time IHM supported LA artist Michl. Better With You proves to be a divine pairing. Michl’s smooth vocals and expert songwriting melds perfectly with Mura Masa’s sonic wizardry on the immaculate balance between electronica and soulful acoustic pop. The contrast between the song’s gentle, fervent strums and the track’s sharp whizzing, dramatic rolling texture is striking. It’s been a long time coming, but Michl will be releasing a debut album this summer, before he heads out on a new headline tour in the fall.

It’s a trifecta of talent on Better With You, a cool and funky electronic track that sees Finnish producer Lenno joining forces with Los Angeles’ Bee’s Knees. The new original also features slickly alluring vocals by Southern California’s Monogem, whose electro R&B and pop flair are the perfect pairing to the song’s snappy electro beats, rich disco funk, and feel good glide.  Better With You comes from Lenno’s Good Thing EP, which just dropped last Friday on Universal. Stream the song off Spotify above, or Soundcloud below. The Good Thing EP is available from iTunes.
