With the release of their third full-length album anticipated for early next week, Portland-based electro-pop duo Mackintosh Braun hopes listeners think, “Wow, they’re trying new things.”

You might recognize the dreamy stylings of this indie outfit, composed of Ian Mackintosh and Ben Braun, from songs of theirs that appeared on Grey’s Anatomy, Gossip Girl, and Chuck. Where We Are, the band’s sophomore album, was praised by the Associated Press as one of 2010’s most overlooked albums.

Check out Mackintosh Braun’s new album, Arcadia, when it drops on June 16.

 

Cocktail Music: Neon Indian’s “Annie”

Chillwavers rejoice: Neon Indian is back, dreamy synths, retro-pop, and loose curls in all.

His latest release after a nearly four-year hiatus, Adam Palomo’s “Annie” is a catchy summer track that treads the line between breezy, indie-pop and electro 80’s nostalgia, joining the ranks of ambient summer anthems “Deadbeat Summer,” “Polish Girl,” and “Hex Girlfriend.”

Earning the affection of Pitchfork with Psychic Chasms in 2009, and again with Era Extrana in 2011, Neon Indian, along with Washed Out and Toro y Moi, among others, became so embedded in the consciousness of media tastemakers that even the Wall Street Journal was left to question, “Is Chillwave the Next Big Music Trend?”

But as the “scene” fizzled out almost as quickly as it rose to indie prominence, what wasn’t ephemeral was the listeners’ desire for more records. With a full-length album not far on the horizon and a headline at Brooklyn’s Cameo Gallery later in the month, Neon Indian’s highly-anticipated homecoming is certainly off to a bright start.

Conrad Sewell is a dynamic new singer-songwriter from Brisbane, Australia whose debut single “Hold Me Up” was released on March 10 via Lyor Cohen’s 300 Entertainment. Entertainment Weekly calls the track an “upbeat, anthemic, just-about-impossible-to-not-get-swept-away-in pop track,” while wrote: “It’s a huge song with an instantly hummable chorus.” Conrad’s first NYC show earlier this year had Rolling Stone calling Conrad a “Rising star” and likened elements of his performance to everyone from Sam Smith, Pharrell, and Queen.

There has been much speculation over the contents of legendary disco-era DJ/producer Giorgio Moroder’s upcoming album Déjà Vu. This is Moroder’s first album in 30 years, and he was partly inspired by his work with Daft Punk in 2013. While many details about the album have been kept secret, in recent weeks we learned the track list (which features songs by Britney Spears, Kelis, and Kylie Minogue). And today, the Moroder gods granted us our first listen of the title track Déjà Vu featuring Sia.
