Seabright - Phantom Power

Justin Morales, who makes some pretty awesome music under the moniker Seabright, just sent over word that he's working on a new EP! If you guys don't know, Seabright released a pretty awesome album called Shimmer back in August. Well, he's back with a brand new song entitled Phantom Power. Along with this new tune comes a fresh new sound from Seabright; whereas Shimmer was very techy/chillwavey, this new song has a really cool acoustic folky-pop sound while still retaining some of the synth components that make him such a blissed out listen. The new EP should be out sometime around the coming of the new year.

Total Warr - I Don't Need Your Friendship

Hi-Scores Recording Library just sent over this killer single from their new Parisian pop duo Total Warr. The sing is called I Don't Need Your Friendship and is an all-out pop jam, but you also hear all sorts of chillwave and ambient influences; which leads me to believe that most of y'all will dig it. It is on the groups recently released debut; their Cascades EP which only costs $4.00 and has some great songs on it.

Mickey Brown - Zordon

For those of you who don't know, Mickey Brown is a collab between two of my favorite artists; Miller Rodriguez (aka Mickey Mickey Rourke) and Joshua Emter (aka Lester Brown) who released one of my favorite albums of this year back in August, Vision Quest. Anyway, they are back with a brand spanking new single called Zordon from their upcoming release Soul Glo. This duo is really evolving because this is unlike anything I have heard from the duo (in the best possible way).

One In A Googolplex - Monolith

Alchemist Records just announced the release date of a brand-new full-length from One In A Googleplex, The Dropout Cats. This album has an incredibly cool and original sound; one that the label described as a fusion of Candy Claws and The Shins. Having listened to this album, I can think of no other description that would capture it as perfectly. The album will drop Oct. 19th as a limited CD, digital download, or limited cassette.

Blackbird Blackbird - Fade To White (feat. Emily Reo)

Blackbird Blackbird is back with a brand new pop/chillwavey tune. This time, he is collaborating with Emily Reo, who worked on a Truman Peyote tune that I really loved not too long ago. This song has a wonder-filled and uplifting quality to it, not unlike a lot of Blackbird Blackbird's tunes. Make sure to check out his bandcamp where you can find some free EP's, and his full length Summer Heart LP.

Mickey Mickey Rourke - Magic Man

As if Miller Rodriguez, aka Mickey Mickey Rourke, isn't already a busy enough man; just after releasing an amazing 3rd album, Inner Gazing, a couple of days ago he has already released a killer single that is to be on his next album, Magic User. Magic Man is the name of the song and it ventures into new territory for Mickey Mickey Rourke, since vocals are a central element. The album is to be released in January 2011.

Universe - Faces

Hunter Skowron, who makes music under the moniker Universe, sent me an advance copy of his new album Gazing, Gazing and I must say that I am quite impressed. The album is filled with wonderful synths and well executed vocals . The album is slated for release on October 10, and if you would like to order one; contact Hunter at casiokorg@gmail.com for more information. You can also check out more songs from the album on his bandcamp.

Atlantic At Pacific - Weddings

Atlantic At Pacific released his debut full-length today through Alchemist Records. The release is called Weddings and is a really well-done, super chill and psychedelic album. It's a little more chillwave-ish than the most of the ambient stuff that I listen to, but also more abstract than most of the pop that I listen to; an interesting combination. You can order a physical copy of the album, or download it digitally here.
