Fresh off their collaboration with brassy electro-funk brothers French Horn Rebellion comes new Patawawa jam Lie, a swanky twirling disco banger through and through. Its French house swagger is as infectious as a classic Daft Punk jam, with a whole lot of frisky synths and scalding beats. Patawawa’s put out some fantastic songs in the past, but Lie might be their best yet. It’s a solid gold track that also reminds me of some of my favorite Flight Facilities tracks of yore, due to its rich, sultry vocals and its plucky attitude. LIE is the first song revealed from Cookie Records’ new compilation Crispy Groove, out in early June. Download/stream Patawawa’s swag new tune, here.

Before we call it a night after this long and arduous day, we’d like to turn your attention to the latest from Chicago based songwriting and production prodigy Shallou. The artist has already sold out his tour stop in San Francisco on February 22nd at the Rickshaw Stop, which is part of Noise Pop’s annual festival. This comes as no surprise considering the success of his prior singles, including You and Me, which has been topping charts and racking up millions upon millions of streams. And he’s about to support Big Gigantic on tour next month, too, so we can expect his star to shine even brighter as the year progresses. Shallou enlists RIAH on saccharine vocals to round out sublime new single Lie, on which he deftly demonstrates why he’s become such a hotly buzzing electronic attraction. The supple and lissome, graceful and fluid cascade is adorned with lush orchestral strings and a misty, wistful beauty. Despite the melancholia running in its undercurrents, Lie is a buoyant pumping infusion of luxuriant house, mellifluous electropop, and limber future bass. Lie arrives with a breathtaking music video whose snow capped mountains, exquisite auroras, and cloud shrouded peaks build upon the song’s wondrously panoramic scope. Lie is available via major platforms, here.

Our excitement for The Knocks’ new EP TESTIFY continues to build exponentially as the ever versatile New York electronic project unveils their follow up to earlier this months’ collaboration with Absofacto. On LIE, the pair link up with guest vocalist and good friend Jerm to deliver a fresh iteration of their sound. LIE is a full departure from the disco dance bangers of yore. It’s a deliberate, meticulous crescendo burning with passion and a crisp polished, grand rousing R&B pop and indie electronic opus. LIE spreads its magnificent wings and takes towering flight, swooping us up for a triumphant ride. Purchase The Knocks’ LIE as a single from major outlets, here, as we await the arrival of TESTIFY on February 3rd.

The moment I heard NYC band 8 Graves’ new single Lie, I knew it was a must share, a track that was going to enrapture many more hearts than just mine. The song, off the act’s forthcoming debut Mixtape, is a catchy R&B pop jam with a smooth slink and bundles of lovelorn, or rather, solitude-lorn emotion. Along with the swooning song comes a video commentary about the song. Learn more about Lie from 8 Graves below.
