TRACK OF THE WEEK
J. Vague – New Life
Berlin label, Mansions & Millions continue to pique our interest with their steady output of subversive pop, this time via the new single from J. Vague, ‘New Life’. Breathing exactly that into our Monday morning, the track oozes 90s with its nonchalant melding of comedown dance vibes and bittersweet R&B. Accompanying the track is a music video “shot during an acid trip on a Bavarian mountain”, and to that we say: yes please. His EP of the same name is due August 21st.
From Ólafur Arnalds/JFDR‘s haunting ‘Back To The Sky’ to Hudson Mohawke‘s ‘Tar’, we also invite you to spin Kelly Lee Owens‘ similarly celestial ‘Corner Of My Sky’ (feat. John Cale) and an ‘It’s All Over Over Now, Baby Blue’ rework from none other than ANOHNI. Elsewhere, don’t miss Eartheater‘s ‘How To Fight’ and ‘True Lies’ from Vestals. In addition to J. Vague, other Berlin artists with irresistible offerings this week include Sean Nicholas Savage, Kitty Solaris and Abyss X.
