One of my favorite new artists from this year remixed by one of my favorite artists period. ’s “Follow” gets a makeover turning it into a beat driven indie rock track equipped with synth and guitar solos! Hope you enjoy it as much as I am right now.

Guy/Girl synthpop duos may seem to have hit the saturation point in the indie music market (, Memoryhouse, , etc.), but what does it matter when they’re all so good?  has found a way to set themselves apart with a unique mix of chillwave and hip-hop elements.  Their 2011 EP Nightlife is easily one of my favorite listens of the year so I must have been pretty busy to not mention them all year.  Give a listen to standout track “Don’t Move” and remix of “When I’m Small” from earlier this year and find out for yourself how good they are.

Memory Tapes – “Wait in the Dark”

Dayve Hawk is set to release the new album from his project.  Below is a taste of the hazey-pop goodness to look forward to.  “Wait in the Dark” is full of woozy synthesizers dancing alongside Hawk’s signature vocal delivery.  Though it can easily be construed as a upbeat song, there is an undeniable lining of melancholy that gives the darkens the overall ambiance–feels more like “Dance in the Dark” to me.  The album entitled Player Piano is out July 5th via Carpark in the US.

is the guy I pass in the hall everyday that I never knew could be my new best friend.  For the past year I have encountered the music of Mike Diaz, AKA , in the metaphorical hallways of the internet never quite giving him the time of day.  At a friend’s recent suggestion I decided to give a full fledged listen.  Only a few tracks deep into his upcoming full length debut I realized Diaz and I were indeed long lost musical friends.

Millionyoung’s brand of chillwave draws immediate comparisons to other favorites of the genre–, , , –but his unique infusion of retro stylings helps set him apart (see “Calrissian”).  Title track “Replicants”, finds Diaz taking a more routine approach (for the genre) without coming across stale or trite.  Listen to both below.

Replicants will be released digitally February 11th and on CD and LP February 15th via Old Flame, head HERE to pre-order.  The whole album can currently be streamed off the Millionyoung website HERE.
