We’re so in love with Oakland’s Still Woozy and his funky warbling psych funk and hazy curling bedroom electronica that we rushed out to see his opening set at Popscene late last year when he opened for Knox Fortune. We can’t help but feel incredibly proud that the intoxicating new talent hails from here in the Bay, and we’re immensely excited for his sure to be upwards trajectory in the indie scene. Still Woozy confirms the merits of our devotion with new song Lucy, which features ODIE on vocals, who’s a rising R&B soul artist himself. Lucy is like Phoenix gone slenderbodies wonky and slithery, drenched in the dreamy, jazzy funk of Tom Misch. Re-visit Still Woozy’s prior singles on Soundcloud, here.

Darkwave duchess ABRA strikes again with a brilliant new tune. The much buzzing Atlanta based singer songwriter and producer haunts us with barbed hip hop and vaporous R&B on misty and gossamer B.R.A.T, a cheeky lo-fi jam produce by Father. B.R.A.T is a wicked track that reminds us of ABRA’s earlier tracks. Take a trip down memory lane and re-visit those spaciously atmospheric gems on Soundcloud, here.

I’m in a molten state of utter intoxication, swaying in tantalized bliss to Heart, our very first encounter with Omar Apollo even though the artist has released many a fine track in the past year alone. The Mexican-American R&B soul artist, who hails from Indiana, has an extraordinary voice. It’s buttery and creamy, waxy and smooth, an instrument of pure seduction. Heart, a collaboration with Blake Slatkin and Bailey Lindley, is a sensual brooding R&B soul and electro pop ballad steeped in yearning and obsession. Obsessed and infatuated we are, with this gooey weaving, viscous clinging beauty. If you need any more inspiration to fall in love with Omar Apollo and his music, stream prior single Unbothered below, and melt into its Yellow Days meets King Krule like lo-fi and woolly R&B soul ambiance.

THRILLERS is an LA based lo-fi R&B band who just released a video for a spectacular single named Lipstick On The Mirror. Twin Shadow like grandiosity meets a Prince and Autre Ne Veut like funk permeated, simmering heat. The explosively sexy song’s retro styled music video is a perfect match. The intoxicating, lustful song is from the sibling duo’s recent Cotton Candy Kisses EP, which is available on iTunes, now.
