Seahawks
Eyes Of The Moon

Fractal psychedelic pop from London and Cornwall based Seahawks. At time of writing the band is relatively ungoogleable because the American football team of the same name are having some success. In any case, Eyes Of The Moon is a delightful and accessible collection of melodic new age jams that'll pass straight from your third eye to your soul.

Yumi Zouma
EP III

Yumi Zouma - almost certainly no relation to France and Chelsea centre-back Kurt - drop a new four-track EP via Cascine (Korallreven, Chad Valley). EP III is another one of those retro-ish, ‘80s-ish, Italo Disco-ish synth things which pass for indie music these days. Will please fans of Chairlift, Bon Iver, Wild Nothing and the rest of that rabble.

Erika Spring
Scars

Scars is the new 5 track EP from Au Revoir Simone member and Jenny Lewis collaborator, Erika Spring. It is her second solo release following on from her 2012 self-titled EP. If the title track is anything to go by, this EP eschews the electronic pop of Au Revoir Simone in favour of piano and layered vocal harmonies that recall The Staves. 12” EP on Cascine.

Daniel T.
Heliotrope

In a former life, a decade or so ago, Southern California native Daniel T (Terndrup) was one half of Cosmic Kids who drew upon a very wide range of musical inspirations as well as, of course, the vastness of the cosmos. Daniel has long been a crate digger and a collector armed with an impressive knowledge of all sorts of bygone music, hosting regular radio shows on both NTS and Dublab. Terndrup now turns his attention to his solo project and has developed a production style taking in a melange of influences -- funk, post-punk, new age and pop included -- filtering all these along with the SoCal sunshine into his armoury of tunes. Heliotrope is the result, a fun-times album that's sure to make both heads and bodies move. LP on Cascine records.

Various
S&S Presents: Dreams

This collaborative release between Cascine Records (Chad Valley, Korallreven) and blog Stadiums and Shrines features eighteen excursions into all areas of ambience. They cast their net wide on S&S Presents: Dreams - Buchla wizard Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith nestles alongside the spectral folk of Julie Byrne - but it makes for a pleasingly varied listen.

Half Waif
Lavender

Third album as Half Waif  from Nandi Rose Plunket. Lavender allows Plunket to show of her classically trained chops. Her voice swoops and rises in a unpredictable but controlled fashion, over everything from plaintive piano to more aggressive electronic productions. Released on Cascine.

Chad Valley
Imaginary Music

For his third LP as Chad Valley, Oxford musician Hugo Manuel decided to follow his pop instincts. Ditching the collaboration-heavy approach of his previous record, Imaginary Music sees Manuel settling comfortably into role of auteur. The resulting album is replete with heady electro-pop that recalls Prefab Sprout, electro Arcade Fire and the softer edges of Daft Punk’s Discovery. If they do another Drive movie, the likes of ‘LA In August’ and ‘Impartial’ could crop up in the soundtrack.

Mt. Si
911

Taking possible cues from the lushest of 80s Japanese synth pop, '911' is a supremely glossy, rich exercise in future-retro pop music. The slightly Balearic feel sits tightly with an atmosphere of city lights, technicolour discos and dreamlike mind states. Comes on 12" with an instrumental remix and B-side 'Annie'.

Brett
Mode

Mode is the second album from synth-pop four-piece Brett (also know as The Dance Party) and the synths are even lovelier and the falsetto vocals even higher. The group are obviously influenced by 1980s synthesizer textures, but they also draw on modern pop productions and sultry R&B. Available on vinyl LP from Cascine
  • Vinyl LP (CSN073)

Half Waif
Probable Depths

Half Waif (the solo project of Nandi Rose Plunkett, also spotted in the band Pinegrove), released Probable Depths in 2016, and now the Cascine label are giving it a proper vinyl pressing to let its lovely songs fully shine. The Half Waif sound places melodic dramatic songs in the middle of a swirl of pleasing electronics. Limited edition of 400 LPs.

Yumi Zouma
Willowbank

Yumi Zouma are a four piece from New Zealand and Willowbank is the name of a wildlife reserve in the band’s hometown. It was devastated by an earthquake in 2011 and is still on the mend. Yumi Zouma’s soothing pop should aid in its healing; it’s wholesome, fun, summery pop which makes you want to run through a field of wheat and be naughty.

Morly
Sleeping In My Own Bed

Ah my own bed. One of the main reasons why I can't keep a relationship together. Can't sleep in anyone else's. Oh no. Anyway here comes soft voiced crooner Morly aka Katy Morley who offers delicate and and refined soulful r&b influenced pop with hints towards Lapsley and Amy Winehouse. Polished mainstream pop but with much more soul and panache than, say, Adele. Might be big.  
  • Vinyl 12" (CSN099SI)

Yumi Zouma
Yoncalla

Straight outta New Zealand, Yumi Zouma present their debut full-length album, following on from a handful of singles and EPs. Yoncalla is a super-sleek set of synth-pop, pulsing with a subtle, early-on-a-summer-evening kind of feeling. The kind of music to make you just swoon away from your work and go party… Released by the Cascine label.
  • Vinyl LP (CSN080)

Chad Valley
Equatorial Ultravox Addendum

Chad Valley prepares dance floor friendly electronica with keening vocals and punch the air synth motifs and here we get a vinyl re-issue of his earlier EP now with two tracks added and a remix which appeared on the zombie flick 'Warm Bodies'.  His live set is described as 'the best in the business' by the confident press release and he has supported Erasure and Foals to help back up this claim. 
  • Vinyl LP (CSN0101)

Half Waif
form/a

Half Waif is the solo project of Nandi Rose Plunkett, bringing her many various influences (traditional Indian music, classical singing, Celtic music, Messiaen) together into a thrilling blend. form/a is predominantly electronic-pop in terms of textures, but the songcraft and chord structures point to those many other worlds of music. 12” EP on Cascine.
  • Vinyl 12" (CSN091)

Urulu
Air Pacific EP

Four mid-tempo doof-wedges from the man born Taylor Freels here. With tunes entitled ‘Cinnamon Boys’ and ‘Easy Going Greg’ don’t go expecting doom-techno or anything like that. That said, these tunes are fun, affable and just as enjoyable in your room as they would be on the dancefloor. The title track whizzes and purrs charmingly and there is a level of technical proficiency on display here that one would expect of someone who has released on Dirt Crew, Let's Play House and Voyage. 12”.

Morly
Something More Holy EP

Morly, probably best known as the former singer for Gayngs, shows that her soulful voice isn’t her only musical asset with these solo recordings: her productions are inventive and subtle.

  • Vinyl LP (CSN074)

Mt. Si
Limits EP

Satisfying electro-pop side-project, brightening the days of the band members, who spend their day-jobs in Superhumanoids, Kisses and Classixx respectively. Together, as Mt. Si, they manage to sound like a lot more than a way to kill time, with Limits’ 4 tracks each standing up as strong pieces of pop. 12” on Cascine.

Airbird & Napolian
Mr. Foolish

Producers Joel Ford (Ford & Lopatin, Ejecta) and Ian Evans (Napolian) have teamed up as Airbird & Napolian. The pair met whilst working for the highly regarded Software label.

Chad Valley
Entirely New Blue

Chad Valley, in this case, is a writer of colourful and openly expressive pop songs and not a manufacturer of children’s toys. His second album, Entirely New Blue is a complex album of depth and maturity showing that he is progressing in the right direction. His career thus far has seen him collaborate with the likes of Twin Shadow, Glasser and Active Child and have high-profile support slots with the likes of Erasure and Foals.

Yumi Zouma
The Definitive Collection

Collecting Yumi Zouma’s first two EP’s, The Definitive Collection showcases the high calibre of songwriting from a band still in its infancy. With a cover of Air France’s It Feels Good To Be Around You, they’re not afraid to wear their influences on their sleeve. Composed right across the globe it’s a placeless collection. Out on vinyl LP from Cascine.

Cuushe
Night Lines

Presented over four tracks as a noir fairytale, ‘Night Lines’ EP is the fourth release by Kyoto native dream pop artist Cuushe, due for release on New York/London based independent alternative record label Cascine. Using her light, mesmerizing vocals as the main instrument, Cuushe builds a haunting soundscape of the darker side of modern Japan with her lyrics while collaborator Aus creates a gritty backdrop using sounds sourced from film, animation and found samples.

Yumi Zouma
II

Chillwave and deep house are finally joined in a highly underrated marriage, thanks to Yumi Zouma. With angelic vocals and hip-swinging beats, II further continues their rise to the top, all the way from end-of-the-world New Zealand. Everybody knows music from islands is the best music, and they’ve got two of 'em!

Keep Shelly In Athens
At Home


Ice Choir
Pure Holiday

'Pure Holiday' is pretty self-explanatory, really: two cuts ready for that time when you can yell "T'is the season!" unironically in public and everyone will be really into it because their warm coats are making them feel less glum about the punishing cold weather. Uh, yeah: the man responsible for these tunes is Kurt Feldman, Mr. Synth Pop, who wraps up his warm melodies and then unleashes the electro. This is positivity incarnate.

Lemonade
Minus Tide

Lemonade bring their glitchy electronic pop back home with their third record, 'Minus Tide'. It boasts a predominantly percussive sound and also brings the band's production values to the forefront. Autumnal chillwave vibes for all.

Kamp!
Baltimore

Kamp! are a Polish synth pop act who make strong melodic hooks and let their vocals fade into the background like another instrument. They keep doing what Kamp! are wont to do on their new 'Baltimore' EP: make night-time synth jams. "Early Days" is the first track to be released from 'Baltimore' and shows off a darkened version of the Kamp! sound, hammering out and occasionally holding back a hissing beat while the synth blares and the vocals echo away in the distance.    Tracks: Baltimore Parallels Early Days
