A sweetly-sly nod to the bossa nova style with a glowing, modern heart, “Ciel mer azur” is the softly-celebratory newest single from Toulouse’s Laure Briard.

You can pre-order vinyl, CD and digital editions of it now from Bandcamp, while those lucky enough to be in Paris on May 16th can find tickets for the album’s release show right here.
Limber and balanced atop a wry mischief, “Mikos” is a classic-sounding Continental wink and the pristine new single from Emiliana Torrini & The Colorist Orchestra. Their collaborative album Racing The Storm is released by Bella Union on March 17th, and you can pre-order white-vinyl and CD versions of it either from their webstore or from Bandcamp today.
A hypnotic vision, “Fai Fighter” is soothing ultra-modernism and the brightly-lit, Italo-esque and genuinely-wonderful brand-new single from Malaysian-Irish musician and producer yunè pinku. Streaming information for this as well as more information about her will be found at this link. Via Gorilla vs. Bear.
A placidly-plucked and gossamer comfort, “Thud” is the subtly-dynamic, compassionate new single from Brooklyn’s Kierst. Her EP of the same name is out today courtesy of Sad Club Records. You can find streaming links for it as well as tickets to her release show at her home borough’s Baby’s All Right right here. Via The Line of Best Fit.
A sleek, tremoloing, poetic phantom “Keep On Pushing These Walls” is intimate Noir and the otherworldly new single from London’s Nadine Khouri.
