Dutch production whizzes The Him have been a constant source of electronic ecstasy since we first discovered them several years ago. Even this duo have succumbed to the smooth seduction of the R&B movement at the forefront of the new music scene these days, and they’ve constructed an R&B house jam that’s full on exhilarating and inebriating. White Lies is a smooth pumping, creamy gliding anthem, a synth luxuriant, electro charged anthem rounded out with sexy horns and heavily drenched in 80s vibes. The throwback house jam is out now via iTunes, here.

I was re-visiting White Lies’ 2016 album Friends the other day and marveling over my love for the English alt band’s panoramic sweeping post-rock. Fast forward a few days, and along comes a brand new music video for Friends track Don’t Want To Feel It All, a song that is the complete antithesis of its title. I feel it all, and I welcome it all, as White Lies’ synthwavey rock sweeps me off my feet. The new video for the Don’t Want To Feel It All consists of European tour footage, giving a tempting taste of what’s to come if you’re able to hit up one of White Lies’ shows on tour next month and into March through the US, Mexico, and the UK. Tour details, here. Friends is available, here.

I’m much too fond of White Lies’ Take It Out On Me not to dive right back into its crunching, chugging flux of synthwave and post-punk now that the English band has revealed a music video for the song. Take It Out On Me is the first single from White Lies’ forthcoming fourth album, Friends, out October 7th. The band collaborated with award winning Mexican film director David Pablos to create the video for the single, a union that came about after White Lies watched The Chosen Ones on netflix and tracked the director down on Facebook. You can pre-order White Lies’ Friends from their website.

English post punk band White Lies are back, and the news has made me a very happy camper today. The three piece have announced their fourth studio album, Friends. They’ve also revealed its first single, Take It Out On Me, a sweeping synthrock anthem inspired by a “lunatic on Instagram who kept commenting on a friend’s photos in pseudo Biblical verse”. Band member Charles Cave explains: “From his profile I discovered he lived in a remote cabin with a rough-lookin dog. He posted weird videos in which he quoted random numbers. As a challenge, I turned them into a song.” It’s a peculiar story, but I’m glad it lead to the creation of such a fabulous song. New album Friends is set for release on October 7th, which happens to be my birthday. I guess White Lies wanted to give me an unforgettable gift. I’ll be pre-ordering the album, which you can do too on their website.

It would seem that there’s a resurgence of ODESZA remixes again this week, though I suppose due to the briliance of the Seattle duo’s electronic offerings, this may be a circumstance that arises periodically for a long time to come. One such bewitching remix happens to come from emerging and recently buzzing Los Angeles electronic act Cheat Codes, who give ODESZA’s White Lies, featuring Jenni Potts, an indie electronic meets future bass makeover. Cheat Codes had crafted the remix for ODESZA’s remix contest some time ago, and they came in third place with this fluttery, magical remix.

Some Dim Sum sounds really good right now. I mean, I’m sort of hungry, so I hope you realize there’s a double entendre going on here. Just play this terrific new remix, and you’ll hear what I mean. The French producer is the latest to offer up an Odesza remix. Of course, the In Return track du jour that’s been getting much editing is the Jenni Potts featuring tune, White Lies. Dim Sum boosts the buoyancy of the effervescent song, giving it an entrancing but uplifting tempo. Still as dreamy as it originally was, Dim Sum’s creation gives White Lies a more summery, blissful house vibe, with a resplendent dash of disco.

It’s been awhile since I’ve shared a remix of Odesza’s spectacular music (that debut album, wow). But this stunning rendition of Jenni Potts featuring White Lies, by a producer named INSTRUM, is a must. He takes the ethereal track and transforms it into an epic tropical deep house jam. Entrancing bass and an infusion of instrumentals are the perfect pairing with Jenni Potts’ siren like, enchanting vocals.

Max Frost, that guy from Austin who gave us spunky, awesome White Lies, is gearing up to release his debut album in 2015. Paranoia is his latest single, once again drawing obvious comparison to music crafted by the great Danger Mouse with its bluesy, funky, and soulful flair. Max dropped a new music video for the infectious, fierce song earlier this month. He’s also toured with Fitz & The Tantrums and been included by Rolling Stone and NPR on their 10 Artists You Need To Know list. Revisit White Lies below the video for Paranoia. It’s just too good.
