Today we feast on her song Giant In My Heart, which is currently giving me absolutely everything but a giant heart-on. Or, just maybe it is.

British electro-siren La Roux is making a splash with the anticipation of her new album, Trouble In Paradise, due out July 21. She’s recently a solo-act, though her former bandmate was involved in the process with her new album.
Most importantly, the prerelease tracks are absolutely brilliant synth-heavy dreams filling an Annie Lennox void that nu-new-wavers didn’t even know they needed filled. Uptight Downtown, Let Me Down Gently and Tropical Chancer are each unique on their own, but together they’re some of the most disco-saavy songs in some time.

Hydrothermal Vents, by definition, are fissures in the ocean floor that allow geothermal water to escape into the rest of the ocean. Heated from inside the planets surface, these vents encourage bacterial growth around them, attracting larger life forms and creating a primitive ecosystem.
That being said, Montreal band The Hydrothermal Vents is crossing genres with their album Secrets of the Deep! due out July 5th. Similar to The B52’s and The Pixies, John Tielli and Tessa Kautzman are creating dance-punk with a nautical flair. Citing the aforementioned bands and The Talking Heads as major influences, The Hydrothermal Vents have a unique, upbeat sound that is familiar yet original simultaneously. In addition to the intrigue of their sound, they are inspired by the ideas their band name represents, the mysteries of the ocean, and the magic of a land unknown.

Stevie Bucks, a Toronto native, spits throwback 90’s rap style with a visionary description of growing up with troubles. In his music video for his single A Little Bit Of Peace, he opens with an interview where he states: “they hate me before I knew what hate was — they had an agenda for me.”

This kind of perspective and truthfulness about reality shines in his lyrics, not to mention Rich Kidd’s exceptional production. The single above, A Little Bit Of Peace, is from Bucks’ sophomore EP Soul Projects, which was officially released June 9th.

Fun Fact: Bucks was in the film Get Rich or Die Tryin’, starring 50 Cent before he was involved with Rich Kidd and Blanoire.

Check out the video for Bucks’ single Cancer below:

Andrea Remondini is an artist of classical inclination and a love of the electric sound. He makes synths into symphonies, and you can witness it yourself on his album Non Sequitur, released May 29th.

Remondini also uses current beats and themes such as the ever-popular snare, utilized with a military aesthetic. Synths sounding like violins also wail like sirens over much of the music, giving an escapist and dreamlike sound.

Non Sequitur is reminiscent of past new-age artists, but with a contemporary, synth-phonic feel. “Sound design is one of the activities I enjoy the most, and that often sparks melodic ideas,” says Remondini. “Things that mostly take place in the unconscious mind, I think.”

Aubergine MACHINE comes to us from Florida, a land where producer Ian Carey and Shanti Ellis can create atmospheric, stylish songs with rich beats and haunting vocals.
