Australia’s Night Tales first dazzled us late last year with their debut single Move You, a deep pumping, dark sweltering electronic ode to unrequited love. The duo, formed by producer Third Floor and singer songwriter Kamaliza (previously of Olympic Ayres), return with an ace new jam named Want, which we can’t stop wanting more of after grooving to our hearts content to the song’s balmy sunset house and silky crooning by guest vocalist fellow Australian songstress Kimono. Chill disco beats, sultry horns, and some sweet RÜFÜS vibes abound on the molten electronic track. Want is out now on Majestic Casual. Find it, here.

Life feels a little bit less solitary and far less lonely when accompanied by marvelous music, which is exactly what Lonely Benson serves up on his fresh new synthpop, chill disco, and psych pop jam, Let It Go. The plush grooving, sultry smoldering tune is the Nashville artist’s first single of the year. It undulates, surges, and swells, all the while winding through an intricate array of incendiary guitar work, jazzy keys, effects-laced vocals, and an infectiously lush, spacey whirring atmosphere. Let It Go arrives alongside the release of Lonely Benson’s Will Pugh produced full-length debut, featuring fan favorites like psychedelic Location and Spotify smash hit Strawberry Afternoons. Stream Lonely Benson’s eponymous debut album on Soundcloud, here, and support via iTunes, here.

We love Kero Kero Bonito and their bubbly aerated, J-pop inspired electro-pop, but we’re also very much elated that the English trio seems to be stretching out their legs when it comes to sculpting new sounds and experimenting in new directions. They surprised us last month with scuzzy guitars and crunchy pop rock on Only Acting. Now, they delight us with a smooth shimmering, gauzy waltzing groove on Cinema, reminding us of acts like Yumi Zouma and Men I Trust in the process. A hint of chill psychedelic disco and some dreamy funk also saturate the dreamy swaying track. Cinema comes off KKB’s new four track EP, TOTEP, on which they explore a myriad of sounds. Streaming/purchase links for the self-released EP can be found on their website, here.

After releasing Stranded a few months ago, and Arty Boy a few months prior to that, Australia’s Flight Facilities hasn’t uttered so much as a peep for awhile. That is, until recently, when they started teasing their return with some mysterious visuals. Lo and behold, today they’ve unleashed on us a smooth polished and cool pumping new track named Need You, featuring sugary vocals by New Zealand’s NÏKA. The track arrives with a compendium of vintage footage in its music video, including shots of Arnold Schwarzenegger, which continues the peculiar theme they started in the video for Arty Boy, which also alluded to the Guvernator. Need You has all the markings of a classic Flight Facilities jam. Its chill disco and glistening house seams urge us to dance and celebrate the return of one of our all time favorite dance troupes. Flight Facilities also announced a new tour earlier today. Though no San Francisco stop is listed on their The Return Flight tour, we have a feeling they’ll be part of some festival lineups. Stream/download Need You, out on Future Classic, here.

A sudden burst of summery heat this week in San Francisco seems to give us the perfect winter opportunity to head out for a nice Bay sail in our best boating threads and some cool fedoras. Except, I don’t have a sail boat, and I’ll have to ask someone to take me sailing instead. Oakland’s Same Girls seem to be on the same wavelength as me as they coo “take me sailing” on their new single, a yacht rock meets chill disco ray of lazy afternoon sunshine. Sailing’s wonky intoxicating, hazy twirling groove is reminiscent of Homeshake’s bedroom pop paired with a touch of Trails and Ways’ breezy indie pop, all laid out on languorous shimmering waves. You can check out more of this intriguing Oakland band’s music on Soundcloud, here.

New Brooklyn outfit Barrie sure now how to cast a sensuous and intoxicating spell with their first release. Though its members hail from a myriad of international locales, their chemistry as one is more than apparent on muggy simmering, smoky grooving Canyons, a chill luscious synthwave and sweet swirling disco embroidered debut. Its sort of like Porches paired with Cults, doused with a hint of Chromatics and some Yumi Zouma. You can also stream the phenomenal single via Spotify, here, or purchase from iTunes, here. We’ll be looking ahead to what else this noteworthy new project has in store for us this year.

Mt. Si, if you’re not familiar with the Los Angeles trio yet, is a super-project of sorts. Its three members include Kisses’ Jesse Kivel, Classixx’s Michael David, and Sarah Chernoff, who used to be a member of Superhumanoids. As Mt. Si, they’ve been slowly releasing music for a number of years, though they took a long hiatus before the arrival of their latest single, 911, a dreamy lush, pastel plush disco pop frolic draped in a steamy swathe of equatorial heat. But its leisurely sway and balmy beats cool us down like a refreshing breeze. The luscious and luxurious song is our first taste and the title track from a new two track EP arriving February 16th on Cascine. Stream/purchase 911, here, pre-order Mt. Si’s 911 EP on vinyl, here

Birocratic is a Brooklyn producer and multi-instrumentalist whose real name is Brandon Rowan, and he’s already established himself a force in the scene these past few years thanks to a slew of original productions and remixes. The 24 year old artist has even been featured in videos from Buzzfeed and YouTube vlogger Casey Neistat, as well as supported artists like MNDSGN and Grammy nominee StarRo live. He kicks off 2018 with a groovy homage to 90′s house and 80′s funk named, fittingly, Extra Fresh. The luscious track even comes accompanied by a cheeky “infomercial” video for, what else, but minty mouth wash. Get down to Birocratic’s robust basslines on his chill disco and glam house jam. Birocratic is also known for his brilliant live shows. He dazzles the crowd with his instrumental skills on bass guitar, keyboards, finger-drumming, and more, allowing him to bring his experimental jazz, hip hop, and house records to life in real time. Download/stream Extra Fresh, here.

Though it’s been a very long time since MNDR has given us a new single, the New York based synthpop project has made some welcome appearances as a guest on many a fine song this past year. She appeared on Oliver’s Chemicals, re-united with TOKiMONSTA on We Love, and collaborated with RAC on Unusual to give us one of the most memorable and infectious tracks off the producer’s recent album EGO. MNDR now closes out the year by lending her voice to a new original from Los Angeles nu-disco and electro producer Le Youth. He goes old school on I Could Always, blending chill wavy disco with a laid back hip hop roll. This hybrid pop and electronic concoction is quite the dreamy mesmeric dazzler and the perfect mellow head nodding, feet tapping jam. Stream/download the track, here.

If I had my satin jacket with me, I’d certainly don it for this slick grooving new tune from Satin Jackets. The German duo has had a fine 2017 with their string of hit singles, and now they’re back to cap it off with Mirage, a lustrous glimmering earworm of a dreamy disco pop jam. Producer Tim Bernhardt showcases his nimble production skills on the euphoric and weightless frolic, while Den Ishu’s breathy svelte voice entrances us with its sleek beauty. If this melodiously aerated song is a “mirage”, we hope this perfect illusion never fades. Mirage is out today on Eskimo Recordings.
