Here’s some fantastic news for long time Leon Else fans like me: the British singer songwriter, musician, and dancer has signed to Interscope Records, and he’s debuted his first new music with the label in the form of Black Car. This new single come with a gripping music video, too. Black Car is a finger snapping soulful alt affair, a bold simmering, bluesy snarling display of edgy artistry delivered with much smoldering magnetism. Leon Else’s inspirations, including David Bowie, Prince, and Queen, are on resolute display. The artist stars in Black Car’s eerie surreal film noir alongside actress/model Suki Waterhouse (The Divergent Series: Insurgent, Pride and Prejudice, Zombies). Black Car can be purchased now from iTunes.

It’s become an epic summer in regards to the release of long awaited and much delayed new music. Though no news has surfaced of when we’ll get to hear a new Chromatics album, which was originally promised for Valentine’s Day, the celebrated italo disco brainchild of Johnny Jewel has revealed the deliciously dark title track, Dear Tommy. I had the magnificent song on repeat the night it first surfaced, and today, we dive into its music video together, replete with blood, crimson roses, an ominous countdown clock, and what seems to be the visual representation of the proverbial forbidden fruit or poisoned apple. Dear Tommy is a distended and ghostly synthcore hymnal, as dramatic and intense as a foggy synthpop song can be. Here’s to hoping a release date will be announced for Chromatics’ new album soon.

If you’re at all wondering why this Brooklyn based producer goes by the name Devil Disco, you’ll quickly find your answer in his new remix of Lana Del Rey’s Without You. The “disco” is readily apparent from the edit’s very first bars, but then he goes dark and sinister with the distortion and warping on the elastically jouncing, animatedly haunting treat. Who else but Lana Del Rey is perfect for such an eerie yet thrilling makeover? I’m just about ready to bounce out of my seat right now to Devil Disco’s acid-techno-goth-disco spectacular.

Chillwave artist Memory Tapes has a Halloween gift for us. Three years ago, he released a track titled Walk Me Home. It was a tribute to horror film soundtracks. This week, he gives us Walk Me Home 2, a nearly 14 minute long piece filled with hazy synthy atmospheric sound. It’s not too scary, don’t worry, but it’s certainly got that dark campy eeriness to it that very much reminds me of classic horror films.
