Our first encounter with Gordo two months ago left us giddily trembling with excitement from the luxuriant R&B funk and lavish indie dance music that he served up on debut single Brady. The elusive Australian bedroom producer and singer songwriter has since returned with a succulent second single named Sad Hot Girls. You’ll find no sad girl here as I sway in bliss to to the silky opulence found on this lo-fi R&B funk and alt electro number. Its curling guitars and plush splendor are like Ben Khan and Jai Paul blended with groovalicious Toro Y Moi and the wavey, spaciness of Washed Out or Neon Indian. Re-visit Gordo’s debut single on Soundcloud, here.

New Sydney project Bus Vipers grabbed a firm hold of our ears a few moons ago when multi-instrumentalist Daniel Ahern dropped his debut on Future Classic, CSIRO Weeds, on which the intriguing artist melded crunchy curling psych rock and airy wafting garage pop. Bus Vipers has since dropped a couple more fine gems to solidify his artist to watch status, including this new single, Palace, a fuzzy sheared kaleidoscopic rocker. It follows closely on the heels of Bus Vipers’ new music video for prior busy burbling entrancer, Fluid, also a spectacularly engrossing psych jam. You can view the video below. These are songs that leave the Django Django, Temples, and Jagwar Ma fan in me rejoice endlessly. Palace and Fluid will be on Bus Vipers’ forthcoming Federal Highway EP, out September 8th. Pre-order from Future Classic both digitally and on 12″ vinyl, here.

Nowadays, we get all sorts of awesome collaborations all the time, but that doesn’t mean I wasn’t overjoyed and surprised when this one popped up out of the blue. UK electronic project Vessels has dropped a heck of a tune named Deflect The Light, and it features psych rockers the The Flaming Lips! Tell me you saw this one coming and I’ll call you a liar! Who knew the Flaming Lips’ Wayne Coyne and the Leeds five piece would be such a divine pairing? Deflect The Light is more like a prism of light, a crystalline spiraling, ebullient jogging electronica and space rock kaleidoscope. The song serves as the lead single from Vessels’ upcoming album The Great Distraction, out September 29th via Different Recordings. Pre-order, here.

New duo Safetalk certainly provides us with some snug, comforting, and secure space to wallow in with the Paris & Berlin newcomers’ debut single, Universal. The spacey blipping electro and soft misty alt pop found on this dreamy serene single places me in a calm, contemplative trance. I feel as if I’m floating high above the stratosphere, where I find I’m able to take in the world from a different perspective. It’s a near spiritual experience and very humbling, too. Safetalk wraps us up with their cottony gem, and all I want to do is spend the rest of all time cushioned in its fleecy folds. You can purchase Universal from various outlets, here. The single can also be streamed via Soundcloud below.
