As huge fans of both Alex Winston’s solo project and Max Hershenow’s role in MS MR, we were ecstatic to find out the pair had united on a new side project named Post Precious late last year. The duo made their debut with Timebomb, giving us a vibrant thrumming effusion that immediately captivated and scintillated. And now, they’ve finally returned with their second single, Lose Myself, an equally riveting burst of sharp pulsating beats and Alex Winston’s ever ravishing voice. Lose Myself was co-written with Ryn Weaver (we’re really hoping to get new music from her soon, too). It’s a spectacular eruption of off-kilter pop and dark electropop. Lose Myself is Kate Bush and Fleetwood Mac meets Robyn dance pop, “precious” through and through. Find the single on iTunes, here.

Wolf Alice’s Visions Of A Life was one of our favorite indie/alt rock albums of 2017. The beloved British band, whom I was lucky enough to see on tour at Rickshaw Stop when they opted for an intimate show in San Francisco, certainly outdid themselves with their sophomore album, though 2015′s My Love Is Cool will always have a special place in my heart. An unexpected delight cropped up this week in regards to one of the best songs off their second album. Don’t Delete The Kisses has received a re-work involving both Charli XCX and emerging indie duo Post Precious (Alex Winston and MS MR’s 

Max Hershenow). This new version of Don’t Delete The Kisses is the perfect combination of Charli XCX’s booming, rumbling electropop and Post Precious’ opalescent synthpop. It also feels somewhat like a CHVRCHES re-work with its throbbing beats and glossy synths. You can grab the remix, here.

As an avid fan of both Michigan singer songwriter Alex Winston and NYC synth/electro pop project MS MR, news of a new side project involving Alex Winston and MS MR’s Max Hershenow is truly precious knowledge indeed. The pair make their debut together as Post Precious on Timebomb, a deliciously pulsating, iridescent surging synthpop arrangement that leaves us convinced that Alex’s sugary svelte, spunky hooking vocals and Max’s creative, forward thinking production are a perfect match. Timebomb is steeped in 80′s nostalgia with a punk edge. At times, it even brings to mind Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ synthier offerings. You can purchase Timebomb from iTunes, here.
