Glassy, sedate, gently-angled and brandied futurism, “IRL” is the slick, strangely-serene and civilized brand-new single from Lille, France’s Tapeworms. Released just today, you can stream it on Apple Music and Soundcloud or download it from Bandcamp, and their LinkTree is here.
Dark Italo beamed from the Tiger Bay era in a late-night encounter with a bronze-toned dawn’s approaching possibilities, “Flashlight” is the radiant brand-new single from Glasgow’s Tamara Schlesinger, a.k.a. MALKA. Out on her own Tantrum Records, streaming links for it are here, it’s on Bandcamp, and she has a new album on its way as well.
Synth-driven New Wave psychedelia, “Reason” is a romance within a comforting trance and taken from What’s Yr Damage, the latest album from Philadelphia’s Lovelorn. Out on 6131 Records, you can order blue-and-orange-splatter-vinyl, black-vinyl, CD and digital editions of that from Bandcamp today.
Juno Francis: “Labyrinth”

Rapport: “Going Nowhere”
Floating Through The Wonderwave is the psychedelic title of the forthcoming album from Toronto’s Maddy Wilde and her band Rapport, and from it you can hear “Going Nowhere” — curved in chrome, Olivia Newton-John inspired and sleek.

TOPS: “Janet Planet”
Honeyed escapism accompanied by a wry smile, “Janet Planet” is convivial, contoured and taken from Empty Seats, the just-released new EP from Montréal’s TOPS. You can download it from Bandcamp now, while black- and pink-swirl-vinyl editions of it are set to arrive sometime in mid-August.
