In case you missed it last week, here’s the latest song Wet unveiled from their forthcoming album Still Run. Beautiful brittle and crystalline R&B pop washes over us as we dissolve into the Brooklyn-based duo’s gently grooving, breezy twirling Lately, which comes with an intimate lo-fi video. New 10 track album Still Run arrives July 13th on Columbia. You can pre-order the album, here. I can’t wait for them to hit the road for their tour this summer, which will bring them to the Independent in San Francisco for two nights in June.

News of a sophomore album from Wet was met with much revelry and joy last month, when the Brooklyn project shared new song There’s A Reason after debuting new material at Air + Style. We were one of many who were elated by the band’s sudden return, and now we get to celebrate the arrival of a second song from their as of now still untitled sophomore album, too. Wet reverts back to their tenderly aching synthpop tonality on Softens. They strike our hearts with their beautifully melancholic, stringy lush track ahead of a headline tour that will bring them to San Francisco in early June. I’m guessing we’ll be hearing more about that new album soon. For now, melt away to Softens, which is available, here.

I’m more than a bit envious of our IHM colleague, Nick. He was at Air + Style over the weekend, where he caught Brooklyn’s WET, and they played a myriad of new songs for the enthralled crowd, too. Well, today, we get to listen to one such new tune as well as revel in news of a sophomore album. There’s A Reason is fleecy light, just like WET’s prior repertoire, but it’s also luminous and dreamy. In fact, it feels more twangy guitar pop and indie rock than their soft, sensual synthpop meets alt R&B laments of the past. We’re very curious how this next album is going to sound now that our ears have partaken in this breezy swaying gem. WET has also announced a new string of shows, which including an intimate stop at the Independent in San Francisco on June 1st. We’ll be ready to snag tickets when the show goes on sale early next week. Better be on time, there’s no doubt the show will sell out.

WET’s debut album Don’t You is easily one of my favorite albums of the year, and I count myself fortunate to have seen the Brooklyn band perform their seductive aching, wistful sensual dream pop and R&B a handful of times in the past year. As it turns out, WET is about to head back on tour for the album once again, but before they do so, they’ve made this Thursday an epic one with two brand new tunes. The Middle is a slow simmering, gauzy enchanting song that breaks into a mid-tempo pace draped in signature WET melancholy. The gorgeous song reminds me how much I’ve missed WET these past months. Their other new song, Turn Away,  which can be streamed below, boasts some edgy experimental production, delivering a surprising amount of needling balefulness alongside WET’s usual tenderly anguished vocals. Both new songs can be purchased now from major outlets, here. To find out more about WET’s impending tour, click here.

Wet’s debut album Don’t You is still one of my favorites this year despite the long list of incredible full lengths that I’ve been enjoying these past few months. The Brooklyn trio’s pillowy soft, misty emotive R&B pop on album track All The Ways has shape shifted into gently booming, hypnotically skittering melancholic beauty on a stunning remix by New York’s Branchez. The producer displays much control on the subtle and downtempo re-work of the gem.

East London’s JONES dropped an astonishing, soulful electronic pop beauty a several months ago named Hoops, a taste off the rising chanteuse’s debut album, New Skin, due for release this spring. Hoops takes on a haunting, skeletal beauty on a remix by Brooklyn’s WET, who drape the song in murky minimalism permeated by skittering drums and jittery vocal chops. WET’s remix leaves me with goosebumps and tingles that remain long after the track ends.

I’m literally counting down the days till January 29th, because on that glorious day, New York based WET will be releasing their highly anticipated debut album. The three piece has been turning me into a helpless, aching puddle for a couple years now with their lightly feathery but deeply stirring R&B pop. From the forthcoming full length album comes this brand new one, a crystalline and delicate gem named All The Ways. As always, WET has the uncanny ability to deliver me into the arms of bliss and tenderize my heart simultaneously. All The Ways will be an instant download if you pre-order WET’s album, Don’t You, on iTunes.

I was fittingly rendered into a melted puddle this morning by WET’s latest gem, a heart annihilating ballad named It’s All In Vain. The anguished yet cottony song is a taste from Wet’s highly anticipated debut full length, Don’t You, due out January 29th on Columbia Records. It’s one of next year’s albums that I’m most looking forward to. From Don’t Wanna Be Your Girl over two years ago to today, this amazing Brooklyn band has taken us on one grand and emotional ride. I can’t wait to pre-order Don’t You.

Adele’s Hello is quickly making music history these days. It seems that many are obsessed with the tune, which one friend described as “crack” in his conversation with me. Hello also seems to be the most remixed and covered track of the moment. On top of all this, Hello is now the first ever song to sell 1 million downloads in a week. While we stew over those facts, let’s go back in time to one of Adele’s earliest hits from so many years ago. New York’s Wet offers up an exquisite cover of Chasing Pavements, and its a brilliant interpretation of the song. Wet’s Chasing Pavements is a warped avenue of rich and luxurious electronic R&B coated in deliciously menacing, psychedelic apprehension. I’m chasing this one all the way, sensual gloom and decadent doom included.
