Madge’s Fight Or Flight Club is one of our favorite debuts of the year. We just can’t get enough of the Los Angeles based newcomer’s piquant and sprightly electro-pop on the song, and we’re glad many more people have picked up on the track since our feature last month, garnering it some impressive spots on viral Spotify playlists. Madge is back this week with her second single, and it’s as eccentric a hyperactive noise pop and electro pop single as her first. Bombastic Red James is like Grimes’ art pop mixed with Superorganism’s squishy pop, then coated with School Of Seven Bells’ lissome luster and shimmer. The song’s self-directed music video is also a capricious and outlandish treat. Re-visit our Fight Or Flight Club feature, here.

Bernice’s new song Glue really does stick to us like an endearing adhesive. It’s a finely textured and whimsically crafted tune from the rising Toronto pop experimentalists, and it’s a must for anyone who loves Dirty Projectors and Hundred Waters. The spacey, jazzy ambling art pop tune arrives with news of a new album from the group named “Puff LP: In the air without a shape” which follows on Bernice’s acclaimed 2017 Puff EP. The languorous wafting song is deeply entrancing and delightfully capricious. “Puff LP: In the air without a shape” will be out on May 25th via Arts & Crafts.
