Louise Burns is an accomplished musician, producer and broadcaster from Vancouver, and her just-released take on the Depeche Mode classic “See You” re-casts it in swirling, nuanced, pastel-tinted astral light. Out through her own Mellow Drama Sounds, you’ll find streaming links for this here.
It dawns with a flanged and misty jangle which burns away as its meditative inner sun rises and warms. “If You Only Feel It Once” is a melancholic anthem and the towering brand-new single from South London’s Bleach Lab. This is the title track to the EP the band will release on November 4th, but you can stream this one now.
A living, blossoming, lo-fi symphony, “Stone After Stone” is the exquisitely-edited, vividly-broadcast new single from New York City’s June McDoom. Her eponymously-titled debut EP is released by Temporary Residence Ltd. on October 28th. You can pre-order crystal-clear-with-green-mix-vinyl and black-vinyl versions of it either from them or from Bandcamp now.
“Vertigo” is the adroitly-spare, spooky and noir-toned brand-new single from London’s Nadine Khouri. Her sure-to-be-excellent next album Another Life will be released by Talitres on November 18th. Recorded with the legendary John Parish, you can pre-order red-opaque-vinyl, black-vinyl and CD editions of it from her Bandcamp page today.
“Past Tense” is the crisply-shot, muscled, moody, brand-new and excellent single from Chicago’s Doom Flower. The track is taken from Limestone Ritual, the album they release through their hometown’s record label on January 6th. You can pre-order purple-swirl-cassette and digital versions of it from Bandcamp now.
Charismatic, breezy and cool, “All You Do” is the swirling, sumptuous latest single from L.A.’s Magdalena Bay. You can find streaming links for it here.

“How it is” — the buzzing new single from Bergen, Norway’s Bo Milli — is cool, conversational, frank and filled to bursting with an easy, youthful charm. You can find a bounty of streaming options for this gem here, it’s on Bandcamp, and she’s got more releases planned for later in the year as well.
