Los Angeles’ Handsome Ghost revealed not one but two new gems today to follow up on his last song, a haunting cover of Postal Service’s Brand New Colony (which you must listen to, here, if you managed to pass it by till today). The first of these treats is a mellifluous longing electronic meets alt pop strummer named “beauty/bends”. Handsome Ghost’s Tim Noyes wrote the song towards the end of his band’s first tour while outside a Virginia hotel. Accompanying “beauty/bends” is tenderly melting “indian summer”, which you can find below. Together, the songs pack a one two nostalgic punch heavily drenched in lovelorn dewy feels. With the two songs comes news of a U.S. headline tour with special guest Frances Cone, as well as a long awaited debut album set to arrive this fall via Photo Finish Records. You can download “beauty/bends”, here, as well as grab “indian summer”, here. Find out more of Handsome Ghost’s May tour, here.

With how mild the weather’s been lately in the Bay, you could say we’re still feeling the effects of an Indian summer here in California. Over in Australia, it’s going to be full blown summer soon. Perhaps it’s production duo Indian Summer who’s exporting some of that balmy weather over to our golden California shores with their electronic music. I swear I feel the air heating up  around me while I’m swaying blissfully to Love Like This, their dreamy cascading, wavy rippling new future trap ballad featuring LASTLINGS on opulent plush vocals. Indian Summer explains that the luxuriant ballad is their second release in a series of new material. Love Like This  is out on all major channels, here.

Porsches’ butter sleek Karate is getting some wicked remixes these days. From last week’s summery deep house edit by POOLCLVB, we turn our eager ears towards a new remix by Australian duo Indian Summer, whom I’ve missed dearly this past year. The duo soundtracked my Summer of 2014 with some magnificent tunes. I’m elated to see them return with a Porsches remix. Indian Summer infuses Karate with colossal trap energy and theatrical pomp. It’s a blistering burst of riveting, unsettling rapture. Their remix is out now on Beatport.

Big, big news today. Massive, in fact. One of my favorite young producers of the past year, the amazing Jai Wolf, has dropped his very first original! Indian Summer is a magnificent track, an epic tune worthy of soundtracking the most spectacular moments on the most life changing journeys, whether emotional or physical. Indian Summer was a very huge surprise, considering some of my favorite Jai Wolf tracks over the past year have been thrilling future bass fixes of tunes I love. Don’t get me wrong, that Jai Wolf style is still very much front and center on the track, but Indian Summer is spectacularly majestic and regal, a spiritual experience more along the lines of ODESZA with a huge Explosions In The Sky meets Tycho state of mind. This one is so radiant, so hopeful, so bright, that there’s no way you won’t feel inspired after listening to it. Grab the song on iTunes or Spotify. Indian Summer is the third release from Foreign Family Collective, an outlet for musicians and visual artists alike, curated by the duo behind ODESZA.

It’s been but a week since we first heard Australian duo Indian Summer’s latest massively enchanting electronic tune Loveweights, featuring Shaqdi, but here we are, with the very first remix. The suddenly quite busy Plastic Plates offers up this thumping, deep, and crisp house remix of the gem.

Australian duo Indian Summer won my heart over the moment I heard their song Shiner over the summer, which features vocals by Ginger And The Ghost. I recently heard it live in San Francisco, which really made my year. I guess I have a desire to listen to all of my favorite songs of the year live, if possible. The duo also blew me away with the rest of their debut San Francisco set, a masterful showcase that was heavily trap-centric, but also surprisingly genre versatile. In light of that set, I wasn’t sure what to expect on their new single, Loveweights, which features Shaqdi’s delicate, exquisite vocals. I was quite delighted that Indian Summer chose to go a dark, mystique filled futuristic route on the tune, not unlike their sound on Shiner. The weightless, sparkling gem will be out December 19 on Sweat It Out. Quite honestly, I can’t wait for the boys to come back to San Francisco!

It’s been a year since Toronto artist LYON’s EP Indian Summer, and she’s finally returned with a terrific (and free) new single, Cut Me Loose, after recently guesting on Wolf Saga’s The Strokes cover You Only Live Once. Cut Me Loose is a pulsing, infectious electronic pop anthem and a first single from a forthcoming album, set to release next year. LYON’s crystalline vocals remind me of much endearing and sugared vocals by the likes of Metric’s Emily Haines and Stars’ Amy Millan. If you missed last year’s Indian Summer EP, stream the title track below.

A week or so ago, Australian electronic act Indian Summer blew me away live at Popscene in San Francisco. They threw down a sick set that could’ve easily been the headlining set of the night (Robert DeLong played the headlining set). I’ve been huge on these guys since I heard their dark, enchanting song Shiner, but the rest of their versatile included all sorts of electronic music, including one of my favorites, trap. Indian Summer’s Foreign Formula received an atmospheric and dreamy remix by Australian duo Cosmo’s Midnight. The resulting chill house track is utterly intoxicating and lusciously muggy.
