Pick ‘n’ Mix – MOURN // Irrational Friend

Feeling a bit lethargic today? This’ll wake ya…

That’s the latest track to be taken off MOURN’s forthcoming new album Ha, Ha, He, that we’ve been banging on a bout for a little while now. It’s out 3rd June



Jasper’s New Music Takeaway – Baby Blood / Searls / Memoryy


Straight into it today starting off with one right from the top shelf. It’s a bit weird (you can see that pic up there right?), off kilter, experimental and all those kinds of words but you can also describe Danish producer/ singer songwriter Baby Blood in one the word- mega awesome. Ok that’s two but I just had to emphasise it. Her latest single, ‘White Lotus’ is delightfully dark, slightly gothy, RnB flecked synth pop that’s like FKA Twigs on steroids. It comes off her forthcoming E.P. Await The Coven, which if it’s as good as it sounds menacing is gonna be more than worth purchase.

My dad used to have a white Lotus Espirit back in the day, naughty motor that was. Not sure that’s what Baby Blood was singing about tho…. –Facebook / Soundcloud / Instagram


Next up we’ve got another belter this time from Irish alt RnB artist Searls. The track’s called ‘Doing Time’, it’s production comes from LJ Looper who puts his electronic skills to good use in creating an atmospheric, minimal pop sound that’s reminiscent of artists like Fractures and Cambio Sun. It’s taken off his forthcoming 3 track E.P., also produced by LJ Looper, that I’m assured will be out later in the summer.

What will you be Doing with your Time until the Searls E.P. comes out? I plan on going on lots of holidays, if only I could afford them… – Facebook / Soundcloud / TwitterInstagram / YouTube / Website


Last up we have New Mexico via Brooklyn electro-pop solo artist Shaun Hettinger aka Memoryy. You may well have spotted his last two singles if you’re a HypeMachine regular, seeing as they both charted in the top 20, and his last remix went one further by venturing into the top 10. And if that wasn’t impressive enough he’s landed the gig to  produce the theme song for Netflix’s brand new Chelsea Handler talk show, “Chelsea”. Nice, but what’s he sound like? Dancefloor ready dreamy, 80s influenced electro pop with more than a passing resemblance to New Order, or ace in other words.

Don’t forget (lol) to check out Memoryy’s socials before you run off to do other stuff yeah – Facebook / Soundcloud / Twitter / Instagram / YouTube / Website
