Haulm’s six track EP Stay For Me has been out for a moment, but that in no way means we should let EP track Clean slip by. The Brooklyn based project, a collaboration between vocalist/composer JT Norton and electronic producer Reed Kackley (BAILE), entice and enchant with their chiffon vocals and an ethereal trickling, misty burbling soundscape on Clean. Their downtempo electronica and wispy light vocals remind me of Daniel Woolhouse’s early music as Deptford Goth, but embedded in a nebulous haunting, atmospheric skimming sonic environment akin to some of John Hopkins or even Bonobo’s more chill and ambient constructions. Haulm’s Stay For Me EP can be streamed in full on Soundcloud, here.

I’ve been madly wondering what The Japanese House has been up to lately. So many of us fell in love with the British musician’s somberly captivating and atmospheric debuts earlier this year, co-produced by The 1975′s ever dreamy Matt Healy. Finally, The Japanese House is back to follow up on his phenomenal debut EP, Pools To Bathe In, with a brand new meandering gem named Clean. It’s an overwhelmingly tender and melting experience on cinematic, fragile Clean, the title track from a sophomore EP due out November 6th. You can already pre-order the EP on iTunes and as a limited edition 12″ vinyl. I can’t wait to hear more from Clean, which will again feature some co-production by Matty.  Stream the single on Spotify above and Soundcloud below.

If you’re on my twitter or Facebook, you might have already seen me share this amazing song this morning. I’ve been blasting The Acid’s debut album Liminal these past couple of days, and it’s been melting my face, as expected. I came upon The Acid when I was trying to figure out what Los Angeles artist RY X, who floored me with his song Berlin, was up to after a long period of silence .Turns out, he’s been busy with this new band. Clean is a hypnotic, brilliant track off their stellar debut, just one of so many jaw dropping works of art. At times, they, and this song, sound like more recent Radiohead or Thom Yorke, but with splashes of Asgeir, SOHN, and even Moderat in its darkest, synthiest moments. Clean and Basic Instinct are my current favorites off the album, so I’ll share the video for Basic Instinct again, below.
