It’s been a long year since we last heard from BUNGALOW, the Amsterdam based electronic/pop duo who gave us a stellar EP named 90/92. Turns out, they’ve been hard at work making a new EP for us, and they’ve already shared a first cut from the release. Never Really Leave is a slick warbling, molten purring swooner that leaves us ever excited for that sophomore record, due out next February. It’s a long time to wait, but it’s obvious BUNGALOW “never really leaves” us when we have their growing compendium of smoldering alt pop and electronic hybrids to keep our hearts fluttering, our skin flushed, and our pulses quickened. Re-visit their debut EP on Soundcloud, here.

May start posting these ongoing “MOOSIQ MOSAICs” direct on IHM for those who haven’t had time to catch up on daily features and want to stream some rad new tunes via a handy Soundcloud playlist. Been doing this for awhile now, but likely many are still not aware (particularly if you don’t follow IHM on Twitter or Facebook). This one’s sonic gold, so many sizzling hot jams featured earlier this week on June 15th! Only songs that are streaming in full on Soundcloud are included in these playlists, snippets and previews are excluded.

The word “bungalow” tends to make me think of vacations and retreats, evoking escapes to fun places where epic adventures await. It’s certainly a sonic paradise that this Dutch indie electronic and neo-soul duo Bungalow takes us to on Fox, a track off their new EP 90/92. Fox is sleek hooking, funk whirring swooner. Its slinky sashay and peacock strut radiate much lustful heat. Bungalow’s song drives me to do something sly and naughty. In fact, it leaves me feeling very foxy. Stream Bungalow’s 90/92 EP in full on Soundcloud and purchase from iTunes.

Al Bairre had me bobbing my head in delight the moment I heard their Afro beat driven guitar pop single Bungalow, a bright, colorful, and peppy treat. The quartet combine cello, violin, guitars, and keys with ukelele and drums on the song, which reminds me of a playful blend of Vampire Weekend, Cayucas, and Arcade Fire. Al Bairre is a huge deal back home in South Africa but they’ll be heading to the UK for the first time in May. Watch Al Bairre’s music video for Bungalow below.
