It seems some of us liked this summer’s explosion of lo-fi beach pop a lot more than others. As a result of some of the best music this year from bands such as Beach Fossils/Best Coast/Wavves, Canadian electro project Teen Daze wrote a summer EP to help you remember how great the summer was. Here’s the first track written for the EP, “Let’s Fall Asleep Together,” and you can go to their BandCamp and pay-what-you-want for the EP.
Genre: Electronic, Dance, Jungle Pop
Location: Brooklyn, NY

Here comes a double dosage of incredible music from True Panther Sounds. Both of these EPs couldn’t come at a better time, just when it starts to get really really nice outside. Pure Moods and Settings are very similar in some cases, but at the same time show big differences. They both sound like they came out of a jungle dance scene, filled with steel drums, maracas, and just about any tropical instrument you could imagine. Pure Moods is a more poppy release, but I’m not saying that Settings isn’t poppy, it just does it in a different way. There’s a lot more instrumental parts on Settings, creating a fun atmosphere of synths, guitar effects, and electro-beats. I think the point of both EPs is to go outside and dance, so do it! And for the record, “Banana Republic” might be my favorite song of 2010 so far. These EPs released yesterday, and you can pick up both of these 12″ from True Panther through the Matador Store. Also, both Lemonade and Tanlines are playing the True Panther SXSW showcase along with The Morning Benders and Delorean, so definitely go check that out if you’re gonna be down there

LA duo Kisses has recently been floating around the blogosphere, and then my good friends over at Stratosphering posted it, so I decided I should probably listen to it. The general consensus that I’m reading most places is that it’s Jens Lekman’s voice on top of Neon Indian/The xx’s beats. Whether or not you think that’s true (definitely the Jens voice part though), “Bermuda” could not be any more of a perfect song for that vacation playlist!
P.S. If you have never checked out Stratosphering, you are truly missing out. They are literally one of the best music blogs IMO.
