I’m one of those people who hates sitting through television commercials. I tend to switch the channel, or pop over to something on my DVR just to avoid sitting there staring at advertisements while minutes tick off the clock. But lately, it’s been a joy catching all the new Apple ads on TV, which I tend to see a lot of when I’m watching my Golden States Warriors games. I’ll never get enough of hearing SOFI TUKKER’s Best Friend and NVDES’ Turning Heads over and over again on TV. Which brings us to our next share, a fresh new video from visionary LA project NVDES, who never disappoint us with their quirky visuals and standout music. The Josh Ocean (Ghost Beach) lead collective’s latest peculiar and playful video is an accompaniment to WALLS, a heady, muggy stroller of a beatific gem off NVDES’ latest EP, Vol. 2. NVDES is currently in the midst of a national co-headlining tour with Pierce Fulton, and I can say from personal experience that they’re a joy to see live, so I highly suggest you make it out to a show. The energy is jaw dropping. Even a more laid back tune like WALLS is going to be a ridiculously enthralling affair.  NVDES’ Vol.2 EP is available, here.

Less than a week ago, Wingtip was slaying the Subsonic Tent at Live 105′s summer festival BFD with the San Francisco born Brooklyn producer’s rapturous house and future beats emulsions. I watched in joy as the crowd danced to their hearts’ content, and I’m brought right back to that euphoric moment by his latest track, Walls, featuring dulcet vocals by Delacey. There’s no better pick me up than Wingtip’s Walls, a crystalline glowing, warm lifting gem which Wingtip describes as really special for him. It was the first time he sat down to write to guitar without any backing track, and it came together smoothly and swiftly. Wingtip has a spectacular summer ahead of him. You can catch him at a long list of major festival appearances, including Splash House, Electric Forest, Lollapalooza, Electric Zoo, Life Is Beautiful, and much, much more.

English singer songwriter Elle Watson is syrupy bewitching and smoldering captivating on her new single, Walls. The song’s moody ebbing and dim tiding production is the work of long time IHM production favorite, Clams Casino. The two prove themselves a perfect match. Elle Watson’s husky aching voice drift morosely through Clams Casinos’ dark droopy soundscape. These walls drip with emotion and shift under the twisting weight of heartache. Walls comes from a new Elle Watson EP named Phantom, due out on December 2nd. Elle Watson will be performing at Servant Jazz Quarters in London on December 5th. Those of you lucky enough to be around for it can find ticket information, here.

Slaptop’s Walls, the San Francisco producer’s contribution to FIFA 16′s soundtrack, is an airy bright blend of infectious dance pop and deep house. TRU Concept, a producer from Birmingham in the UK, gives the track a buoyant deep tropical house makeover. The resulting remix is whimsical and irresistible, a bright eyed banger you won’t be able to resist bouncing along to, like I am right now in my chair. The very walls around me disappear as I feel like I can leap straight to the moon riding on this jam. Download TRU Concept’s remix for free, here.

There’s a new artist out of Los Angeles creating a stir with his music, proving himself quite a music messiah. His name is Jesiah, and his second single, Babylon, arrives with much twinkling, ambling charm. Jesiah’s gentle cooing and the song’s roving stride are reminiscent of Vampire Weekend, but delivered with a bedroom pop intimacy and softened wispiness. Babylon follows on much bolder and more emphatic debut single Walls. Dive into the must listen eruption of lush indie pop below, and keep a close eye on this newcomer.

As you can probably tell by now, some fantastic videos were released today for some fabulous tunes. This next one comes from Canadian producer and musician Wolf Saga, who offers up some laid back, heart warming visuals for  endearing and inspiring indie pop song, Walls. The video depicts Wolf Saga’s own childhood, which was heavily influenced by his grandmother who helped raise him. This story adds another extra layer of depth to Walls and its delightful and intimate synthpop glow. Walls comes from Wolf Saga’s Auburn Nights EP, available now from iTunes.

FIFA 16′s soundtrack is shaping up to be a phenomenal release with some great local talent. Not only does it include Louis The Child’s killer new song It’s Strange, featuring the Bay’s K.Flay, but San Francisco producer Slaptop is also getting featured via his brand new track, Walls. Walls carries on Slaptop’s bright and airy yet deep and entrancing blend of dance pop and deep house. As always, Slaptop is a connoisseur when it comes to doling out thrilling electronica saturated with a penetrating yet hopeful melancholia.

BAILE released his Matter EP today, and it’s a wicked six track seducer, from which I’ve shared a number of the Brooklyn artist’s emotive tracks already. Freshly revealed with the EP is a heavily pensive and tempestuously burning song named Walls, featuring guest vocals by John LaMonica. Mournful and lamenting, Walls creates a suffocating feeling with its stifling production, despondent vocals, and textured, distraught percussion. This may sound like something rather disturbing, but instead, BAILE’s finely nuanced song is a murky experience of pleasure, much in the way that it’s pleasing to mope every so often… to let yourself broil in the aching tension of dysphoria. Preview BAILE”s phenomenal EP, Matter, in full on SoundCloud, and purchase on iTunes.

Walls by Brooklyn’s Win Win was one of a few ear catching trax I happened to listen to yesterday but did not have time to share. Be patient through the repetitive beginning and it’ll explode into an awesome, dizzying groove of sounds. The track is actually a cover of the song Walls by Brit punk band Crass. There’s some major fuzzy distortions, some electric sounds, even some spoken word, and an endless cacophony of super funky noises and disco pop. It’s definitely worth checking out. At times, I feel like I’m listening to a blend of YACHT with Freeze Pop. The unique cover is on their new EP Ones and Zeroes.
