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.

Besides being mighty fine vessels for ice cream, cones, as we’ve already learned earlier this year, are also a great source of spiffy music. Cones, a Los Angeles based brother duo originally from San Francisco, last charmed us with their breezy debut, Echoes On. Now, Jonathan and Michael Rosen are back with a groovalicious synthpop gem named Back In The Brain, which comes with an animated music video which Jonathan directed himself. As a fan of Toro Y Moi and Electric Guest, I can’t help but succumb to this gooey warm delight. As it turns out, Jonathan had previously collaborated with Toro Y Moi, Eleanor Friedberger, and Delicate Steve, creating music videos for them. He says of Cones’ sleek new jam: “A friend of mine once described living alone as a sensation of being constantly inside of your own brain – your house is your head. After a while I realized I would often think the phrase ‘back in the brain’ upon returning home from being out, so we turned it into a song. It’s my ode to solitude. The animation, drawn and colored by hand, brings this idea to life. Through the eyes of Bob the Hippie – an extremely groovy dude who lives inside of a lava lamp – we witness the magical confusion of seclusion.” Cones will be playing Echo Park Rising in LA later this month before heading out on an East Coast tour this September.
