HOTT MT takes us to "At Night in Chinatown"

Minimal experimental pop duo HOTT MT are back with "At Night in Chinatown", a heavily layered track that continues their streak of splicing a random assortment of gossamer noises that both soothes the ears and captures one's curiosity. The accompanying video combines a random sorting of visuals that were mostly shot at their warehouse space, best known to most of us DIY gig seekers as Non Plus Ultra (R.I.P.), as well as a few nocturnal shots of, well, Chinatown. 

"At Night in Chinatown" is taken from their forthcoming second album AU, out May 4 via their own label Mutation Records.

Brian Harding (ex-Ex Cops) debuts new project Blonde Ambition

Blond Ambition, the new pop project of former Ex Cops frontman Brian Harding (who recently relocated from NYC to LA), is set to release debut album 'Slow All Over' on May 5 via Brooklyn's Swoon City Music. On Thursday, March 23, Harding will play an intimate, stripped-down performance at The Event Space at Genius (84 4th Street) -- the show is free with RSVP.

JOME reach for the top on rising new track, "Mountains"

 "Mountains", the new single by electro-pop project JOME, is a buoyant reflection on appreciating the good that we oftentimes tend to dismiss. Harbored by its effervescent and gossamer sounds, the duo of Jesse Marc and Christoph Andersson attempt to find joy in the present moment even if the song is essentially about struggling to win someone's affection. But you really couldn't tell from the outset, as "Mountains" offers an emphatic declaration that feels very, very alive.

"Mountains" is the first single off of the pair's forthcoming debut EP, Tunnels.

 

 

 

 

 

Last spring, LA based songwriter Jesse Marc posted the first track from his new project, JOME. Five minutes after it premiered on Consequence of Sound, he received an email from New Orleanian writer/producer Christoph Andersson (G-Eazy, Olivia O’Brien, Monopol) asking to work together. “I thought it was spam,” Marc said. “It happened too quickly.”
 
Marc and Andersson met up in Venice, CA for an afternoon and immediately saw eye to eye musically. After both working in the pop music world for a number of years, the two were yearning to make something different, something with a deeper emotional resonance. Somehow, before they even met, their vision for the project had already aligned.
 
​​​​​​​"Mountains" is the first single off the pair's forthcoming debut EP “Tunnels.” Anchored on whirring synths and an instinctive beat, the woodland pop gem finds the budding duo musing on a fractured romance, beginning "I took you for granted / I was so lost in the game." And as his forlorn melody is carried away by wind-chime soaked sonics, he offers up a repeated sanguine hook in an attempt to win back his lover: "turn the city into gold / above it we will grow, until we're taller than mountains."
 
"It’s a song about finally achieving your goals and the feeling that comes along with those moments," JOME says about the song. "It's also a reminder to not take things for granted and to appreciate how far you've come, because it's so easy to forget where you started."​​​​​​​

FYOHNA crafts moody, intimate electro pop on debut single "Ghost Heart"

The whirling, somewhat isolated beauty of FYOHNA immediately grabs you with its tense drone and aqueous synth textures on their debut single "Ghost Heart." The duo of vocalist Katarina Gleicher and producer/multi-instrumentalist Elliot Glasser provide a polished and sophisticated atmosphere that seems as if they've been dong this for years. The song's experimental strokes give it an ethereal purity, though it also features the kind of chorus that cloaks you with a welcome embrace.

"Ghost Heart" is the first single off of FYOHNA's self-titled debut EP, which will be released on April 28. They're also scheduled for a show at Union on May 25. - Juan Rodríguez
