Girls, if we were music, would we be salty synth barbs, caramelized into spicy ashes and dripping with curvy, fiery beats? Maybe not all of the time, but for a moment, that’s exactly what “Girls” are, as we take in UK singer songwriter Salt Ashes’ dark electropop anthem. Her new single is ravishing per usual, and brimming with mettle and moxie, a smoldering bop which Salt Ashes describes is about a situation many of us can relate to. She explains it’s about:  ’…

when someone makes an assumption that you want more than just friendship based on their interpretation of how you act or dress. The track is about breaking the stereotypes of people who want to express themselves and their sexuality freely without the “slut shaming” or being told that they’re “asking for it”.’  This is a more than relevant topic as the world contemplates the #MeToo movement, so often countered by victim blaming. Salt Ashes new song is sizzling hot, and so are some of us foxy girls and how we like to dress. Don’t be vain, it’s not about you. Salt Ashes’ Girls is available from iTunes, here.

Spending a lifetime in sweatpants sure sounds comfortable, though I’d imagine it’d get a little boring after a few years. There’s nothing monotonous to be found in Girls, a song from new electro pop band Life In Sweatpants, or L.I.S. The mysterious project arrives with spry spirit on the infectious debut whose ridged beats and quirky production evoke Sjowgren, but imbued with the punchy kick of Sylvan Esso and the summery pop licks of bands like MUNA and HAIM. L.I.S.’s compelling debut is out now on iTunes via Hilly Dilly’s growing label 20XX. Stay tuned for more from L.I.S. in the coming months.

Vanessa Elisha’s fiery inferno of a future R&B ballad, Out Of Time, produced by XXYYXX, was such a strongly resonating and heaving intense number. Though I’m still obsessive over the phenomenal tune, which greatly reminded me of both Banks and George Maple, I’ve also been wondering when the Australian R&B singer would follow up with something new. Today, Vanessa returns with a new track, one produced by Belgium’s Dave Luxe. Girls is frisky and bouncy, a sassy trap, electropop, and R&B joint that solidifies the smoky songbird as a must watch artist. Vanessa takes us in a Rihanna and AlunaGeorge direction with her new jam. It’s obvious she’s not one of those “typical girls” she sings about on Girls. The new single comes just ahead of Vanessa Elisha’s long awaited debut EP, It’s A Day and Night Thing.

Grimes, Bleachers – Entropy

March 15, 2015

It’s Sunday catch up time on some great tunes and bangers I had planned since before the weekend, but first, let’s start with this surprise treat that surfaced today. Those that enjoyed Bleacher’s debut album know that Grimes collaborated on a fantastic but far too short song named Take It Away. Today, Claire teams back up with her buddy Jack Antonoff on luminous new electropop song Entropy. It’s a far lighter and sparkly sound for Grimes, but there’s no mistaking her ephemeral vocals and Jack’s infectious pop stylings. Entropy was crated for HBO series Girls, and it can be heard in tonight’s episode.

It was just a couple nights ago that I was zealously tweeting my love for Slow Magic’s Girls again, my favorite song from the brilliant, enigmatic producer, and easily one of my top songs of 2014. On this great new remix that surfaced this week, Slow Magic teams up with Los Angeles hip hop act MOORS. Keith Stanfield of MOORS lays out some verses over the glitchy, atmospheric production.

I know I just shared Kodak To Graph’s remix of Slow Magic’s Girls yesterday, which I love so very much, nearly to death. But Mad Decent signed UK artist Daktyl does a stellar job on his remix of the mysterious producer’s tune, too, giving it plenty of ethereal effervescence and frothy appeal. Daktyl’s version has a smoother, less ebullient, more chilled out finish, unlike Kodak To Graph’s intense, dramatic remix. I could just have them looping on repeat, along with the original, without end. Slow Magic’s Girls rules.

I have mad props and love to give to Florida based producer Kodak To Graph on his latest remix. Not only has he hit the nail right on the head with this wonderfully effervescent and bubbly chill trap remix, he chose, to show off his skills on a song I dig very, very much. I’m kind of regretting I didn’t make it out to mysterious producer Slow Magic’s show at the Independent last week, because he’s doing such amazing things with his music. My absolute favorite Slow Magic song of late is Girls, which is exactly the track that Kodak To Graph chose to create a trappy, Wave Racer meets Hudson Mohawke meets Flume like atmosphere with. This, my music friends, is magnificent.

The enigmatic, mysterious Slow Magic has been knocking tunes, one by one, out of the ballpark lately. Try as I might, I still haven’t figured out where the producer is from, and he seems to be more than happy to hide behind the shadows for all foreseeable time. While exhilarating and effervescent Girls is my favorite new song of late from the anonymous talent, newly revealed Waited 4 U is also a thrilling treat, though far more chill, sensual, and dreamy. Both songs will be on his upcoming album How To Run Away, out Spetember 9 on Downtown Records. Stream Girls again below.
