New Track: "Cinderella" - Instupendo

Aidan Peterson, a.k.a. Instupendo, recently shared a new single “Cinderella,” featured on the forthcoming EP Boys by Girls (due out on June 5). Establishing an elegant atmosphere of contemplation, the first person narrative swims in a placid, confessional composition. However, while the song appears to come from the point of view of a hesitant admirer, protective instincts are also voiced/revealed. Hovering between a daydreaming ideal and the hope that it translates into a reality, one waits to see how the story plays out.

The new local label Chicago Research has been putting out some quality music for several months now. On May 15th they will be releasing the debut single from Death Valley. This is the pinnacle of Synth Pop and one of the strongest debuts we’ve seen in awhile.

Naytronix Releases “Come Back” off new LP

Nate Brenner, aka Naytronix, just released the single “Come Back” off his forthcoming album, Air, and it’s a fantastically mixed, warm and pleasing jam that pushes the limits of psych pop. The percussive backbone is blessed with drummer Hamir Atwal’s hard-to-mimic snappy jazz touch. The album features some other Oakland favorites, including Madeline Kenney and Tune-Yards’ Merrill Garbus. After his work scoring Sorry to Bother You, we're not supprirsed. “Come Back” is a killer teaser and we can’t wait for the full album, out June 7th on Botcave records. - Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor
