It’s fitting that Dutch-Iranian artist Sevdaliza has released another new track but days after I witnessed her long awaited San Francisco debut last weekend. My only other time catching her live was at SXSW a few years ago, where I made it a priority to experience the visionary talent’s experimental R&B and dark electronic pop live. Throughout all these years, Sevdaliza has mesmerized me with her imaginative music, often dark, seductive, tortured, and anguished, as well as her ability to deliver the most unique and riveting visuals. While that SXSW stint at the Sidewinder was amazing, the tiny stage and the bright sun shining in didn’t afford her a chance to fully perform her multi-faceted art form, but the Noise Pop show she performed at last Saturday blew us away fully. A Sevdaliza show isn’t just about her spectacular vocals, or the glitchy haunting production of her music, but it’s about the movement, the emotion, the aura of it all. Try and imagine taking in new single Human Nature live, and you might get an inkling of what we’re trying to describe. The track arrives on the heels of last single Soul Syncable. Ghostly haunting, gossamer and twisted, but dripping with visceral human emotion, Human Nature is as gripping a song though more hushed than usual for this true definition of an artist. Sevdaliza is a performance art goddess, a superhuman vortex which we gladly fall into. You can’t help but gravitate to every voluptuous turn, every sensuous swipe, and every despairing whorl. Human Nature is available, here. Sevdaliza’s debut album ISON is a must listen, and you can find it, here.

Two bands I love dearly come together on this next sublime remix, an unexpected but more than welcome treat that just came out this morning. Sibling duo Paperwhite gave us a taste of their next EP last month via kinetic throbbing synthpop aria Human Nature. Fellow Brooklyn project Great Good Fine OK has given Human Nature a euphoric and uplifting makeover. It doesn’t get more dreamy effervescent and warm effulgent than this balmy fragrant, tropic lush remix. You can purchase the original from iTunes, here

Exciting news of a third Paperwhite EP comes with a ravishing new tune to stoke the flames of our unbridled excitement. The NYC sibling duo promises galactic and ethereal themes on forthcoming record Escape. A colossal dose of said themes can already be found on lead single Human Nature. The effulgent soaring synthpop aria may be dreamy effervescent, but it’s also a robust kinetic force, a plump throbbing, heart punching spectacular. Paperwhite explains: “No matter how much we may fight it, we are flawed, we are strong and we are in this together. We are human.” Their rousing song convinces us to raise our fists in euphoric solidarity. You can purchase Human Nature from iTunes while we await further news regarding Paperwhite’s new Escape EP.

All hail super hazy fuzzy lo-fi noise rock! I featured the audio for Human Nature back in April, but Chicago duo Gauntlet Hair released this clip today for the edgy lead single off their sophomore album Stills. Not too clear what’s up with the bloody hand, but it seems to fit the song well. The new album drops on July 16 via Dead Oceans.
