Summer Moon bring their own brand of New Wave to Rough Trade on 04.19

Summer Moon, the work of Nikolai Fraiture, is an indie rock/new wave outfit steeped in pop experimentation. The New York based musician explores guitar and percussion layering in ways that bring '80s pioneers like The Talking Heads to mind (in fact, single “With You Tonight” almost sounds like it has a guitar sample from “This Must Be The Place”). With subdued, reverb-soaked vocals, Fraiture lets the subtle production techniques speak for themselves. This project offers the energy and vitality of electronic dance music while satisfying those who crave analogue instrumentation in a musical climate increasingly devoid of it. Give their debut album, 'With You Tonight,' a listen now, go see them at Rough Trade on April 19 and check out this 360 interactive video of the single, below. - Andrew Strader

ELSEE - "ELECTRIC ON MY FEET"

Born and raised in Orillia, Ontario and now residing in Hamilton; this tune "Electric On My Feet" is one of the coolest pop tunes to come across my desk in a while. The thumpin drums immediately get your head movin' back and forth. The keys and guitar fill the perfect amount of space with licks goin' back and forth. Her voice is great though. Sounds like a classic lounge singer of the 60's was warped into the future and met up with a great indie-funk band. There's something mysterious and new about ELSEE. I'm interested to see what's next. - Kris Gies

Moruga Scorpio Releases EP "1"

Moruga Scorpio's debut EP, 1, is an unapologetic collection of sweet, groovy, pop tunes that even music snobs can get into. The tunes blend surfy, classic sounding pop reminiscent of The Beach Boys with darker, heavier, weirder, psychedelic elements that bring The Butthole Surfers to mind. The songs are self-proudced by Evan Donohue, the mastermind behind Moruga Scorpio and former Diarrhea Planet member. Upon listening, it seems he harbors a strong distate genre limitations. There really isn't a single category you can definitively box these songs into, and that makes his music exciting. Morgua Scorpio is for anyone who simply likes great songs with great production. Give it a listen:

Miki Fiki Releases Debut EP

Miki Fiki is a new project started by singer/songwriting Ted Hartog. His debut self-titled EP is a brass-heavy collection of heartbreaky pop tunes that have an irresistably sweet blend of nostalgia, catharsis and melancholy. Clearly influenced by indie pop sensations like Whitney and Ben Folds, Hartog's work is lyric-heavy, with triumphant melodies that stick like glue to memory. The EP's three songs chronicle the chaos of the post breakup emotional state and painstakingly organize it. If this short work is any indication of what's to come from Miki Fiki in the future, indie pop fans had better be on the lookout because, sonically, there's nothing else like this happening in Nashville.
