  • Vampire Weekend – Diane Young MP3

    The indie-pop heart throbs from Vampire Weekend have announced a new album, Modern Vampires of the City, to be released later this month. Fans have been treated to a quick, less than 3 minute single titled “Diane Young,” and the track is quite promising. It’s also almost comical, and appears as if the band members decided one of its early, unpolished forms was what worked best. The song begins with...

  • Chance The Rapper – Cocoa Butter Kisses (ft. Vic Mensa & Twista) MP3

    Sure, Lower Frequencies features a lot more electro-pop and experimental rock than hip hop, but that doesn’t mean we don’t recognize talent when we see it. Chance The Rapper is an up and coming artist from Chicago and his new mixtape, Acid Rap is his coming out party. “Cocoa Butter Kisses” is incredibly smooth, spotlighting Chance’s relaxing, raspy voice that is refreshing in a world...

  • Yinyues – Everything MP3

    Yinyues is an emerging chillwave producer out of the UK. So far that’s about all we know of this apparent newcomer to an already booming electronic scene. Though it’s obvious after hearing his most recent single “Everything” that Yinyues is intent on immediately making a name for himself. It’s a moving, cinematic blend of lovely piano melodies, heavy drums, and the exquisite voice of ...

  • Braids – Amends MP3

    BRAIDS’ moody new track, “Amends”, sounds like a conjuration, or better still a séance. A patch of heavy hiss is abruptly pierced by a pulsing bump-and-tick, as if an old analog receiver were suddenly receiving a nether-worldly transmission. Then Raphaelle Standell-Preston’s vocals curl through the mix like smoke summoned shamanistically by the low, repetitive beat. The track could be hea...

  • The Milk Carton Kids – Hope of a Lifetime MP3

    Consisting of two multi-talented guitarists and singers, The Milk Carton Kids are a quickly rising folk duo out of Los Angeles, California. This track is off of their new album The Ash & Clay, and seems to represent the most cohesive style of the two as they work to find their voices. “Hope of a Lifetime” begins with a complex array of acoustic guitars that intersects with the calming union of Kenneth...

  • Saskatchewan – Youth Ministry MP3

    Today, Orlando based band Saskatchewan released their debut album, Occasion. This band fuses Beach Fossils guitar with Future Islands’ synth and 80′s drum beats. The product is a well produced, new wavy shoe gaze sound, whatever that means. But if “Youth Ministry” doesn’t hook you right away, wait until the 2:25 mark when everything becomes quiet. Suddenly those beautiful synths have t...

  • Folly & the Hunter – Vultures MP3

    Folly And The Hunter have got skills. There’s really no better way I can illustrate my endearing feelings toward this Montreal three piece. They are self described as basing their sound in “American folk tradition and pull inspiration from contemporary indie and post-rock trends.” And in this regard I like to compare their sound to master folksmith Bon Iver and post-rock legends Sigur Rós. But t...

  • Superhumanoids – So Strange MP3

    Superhumanoids’ “So Strange” is about love in a place that isn’t really a place. Some may take this for an ethereal romance, flung across dreamy distances. Others will pick up on the hint in the opening lines about driving, culminating in “you make me hate this town”: ah, so it’s Los Angeles then. Either way, the track, taken from their new album, “Exhibitionistsâ...

  • Iron & Wine – Winter Prayers MP3

    Iron & Wine’s Samuel Beam has been exploring various instrumentations and styles since his early, whispered bedroom recordings that made up The Creek Drank the Cradle (2002). In his 8th studio album, titled Ghost on Ghost, he continues to increase the tempo, even incorporating heavy drums and brass instruments. “Winter Prayers” is one of its mellowest tracks and begins with percussive acoustic ...

  • Radiation City – Foreign Bodies MP3

    Radiation City is an budding Portland band who are getting ready to release their latest LP, Animal In The Median. “Foreign Bodies” comes off this LP and boy is it sure fun. It’s pretty easy to understand what this track is all about after the first 10 seconds or so. The winner is the flute sounding synth that rolls up and down above the sunny guitar rift, giving the track all the energy it needs t...

  • Moon Bounce – She Goes 2 She MP3

    Moon Bounce has figured out the formula to make it onto Lower Frequencies. First, add a lush piano melody and accompany it with some heavy bass. Throw in there some chopped and screwed vocals, slow it down, speed it up, and top it off with a sick guitar solo. And that’s the basic gist for Moon Bounce’s “She Goes 2 She”. It’s a soulful RnB jam that’s got us at Lower Frequencies ...

  • Stolen Jars – Stitches MP3

    Stolen Jars is the musical project of Cody Fitzgerald, a current sophomore at Brown University. I recently saw them open for Magic Man in Allston, MA. After about a minute into the first song, I immediately made the connection to Andrew Bird. Nearly every song Cody played involved looping his guitar three to four times over itself. It allowed him to make intricate guitar licks that that the two female vocalists could...

  • Poliça – Tiff (feat. Justin Vernon) MP3

    Poliça’s new track, “Tiff” (featuring Justin Vernon), is another seamless blend of electronic and R&B the band does so well. With the rest of Poliça nailing down a sultry, vaguely threatening atmosphere, the star is singer Channy Leaneagh, who seductively delivers a scattershot dramatic monologue brimming with vivid details and dark suggestions. She manages to make her words drift, stretc...

Well they’re back, and have announced a new album called Nightingale Floors to be released in June. They recently posted the single from the record, and it sounds very promising. “College” takes a more polished approach than the material off of A...

    Ever since “BTSTU” and “Jasmine” were released, the world has been craving a full length from the incredibly talented producer, Jai Paul. Last Saturday, Paul seemingly released his debut album on his bandcamp page. It consisted of 16 tracks and none of them had names. Unfortunately however, there has been a lot of confusion and controversy over whether or not the album was officially released ...

    TOKiMONSTA is the pseudonym for LA based electronic producer Jennifer Lee. Lee wasn’t on our radar until we heard her wonderful collabo with MDNR “Go With It” earlier this year. It’s one of many great tracks on her gorgeous sophomore album Half Shadows which hit stores last week. “Spilling Autumn” is an atmospheric, dreamy synth pop anthem similar to that of Lower Frequencies al...

  • James Blake – Take A Fall For Me (feat. RZA) MP3

    You may not think it if you only heard his debut LP, but James Blake loves hip-hop. Blake is a producer at heart, and before his self-titled album, he created some amazing tracks using lots of different hip hop samples, (Kelis for example). So here comes “Take A Fall For Me,” the fourth track off Blake’s sophomore LP, featuring the almighty RZA. As RZA has proven time after time, he can fit in pret...

    Self-proclaimed “Disco House Pigs” Los Porcos arrive with “Do You Wanna Live?” a splashy, infectious, shameless disco stomp in the classic tradition of Franki Valli, Earth Wind & Fire and the Bee Gees. The stylish, falsetto-flaunting singer is like a ghost of discos past, redolent of coke-dusted debauchery but also rollerskates-and-bubblegum innocence. If the charms are familiar, the track...

    No Joy’s newest single has all the elements of modern shoegaze, complete with dreamy vocals and blurry guitar chords. On this track, the band sounds a bit like a grungier, no-nonsense version of Best Coast, which is unsurprising as the two were once on tour together. No Joy, made up of two young women and based out of Montreal, has been releasing consistent EP’s for the last few years. “Hare Tarot...

These are some of the most respected contemporary musicians out there right now. But if anyone ca...
