Leverage Models – Cooperative Extensions
“Cooperative Extensions” is the first cluster-cuss taste of Leverage Models’ self-titled debut album, which arrives this October on Hometapes.

This Frontier Needs Heroes – Hooky
“Hooky” may have cheesy lyrics, but, thanks to some nostalgia-inducing instrumentation, they tug at your heart’s strings regardless.

Cate Le Bon feat. Perfume Genius – I Think I Knew
And speaking of tugging at your heart, just try and withstand the simple yet breathtaking interplay between Cate Le Bon and Mike Hadreas (AKA Perfume Genius) on “I Think I Knew”.

Schooner – It Won’t Matter
“It Won’t Matter” is a straightforward southern rocker, plucked up from the side of a highway.

Adelyn Rose – Primitive
Adelyn Rose is an up and coming foursome from Wisconsin. Their latest single“Primitive” glides on a snazzy set of sticks and a gorgeous vocal performance from frontwoman Adelyn Strei.

Cloud Boat – Amber Road (The Haxan Cloack Remix)
If it sounds like a horror movie soundtrack, it was probably worked on by the Haxan Cloak.

Kaytranada – At All
“At All” is a chopped-up mess of warped clips, but Kaytranda does an incredible job of compiling those musical splices and making you want—nay, need—to move.

GoldLink – Electronic Relaxation
GoldLink’s flow is choppy and spastic, which renders“Electronic Relaxation”an ill fitting title. However, this lyrical little dandy is a fun slice of cultural name-dropping that holds steady through the very the last bar.

GRMLN – Scum
GRMLN’s “Scum” is a little more grimy than his usual sunshine stuff. This may only be a demo, but here’s to hoping “Scum” retains, well, its scumminess.
