Rae Isla searches for a new home on "American Paradise"

Despite hailing from Brooklyn, Rae Isla sounds completely stratified in the atmosphere above our country on “American Paradise.” Hovering between painful longing and bitter condemnation, this airy pop star stretches the gossamer of her sounds to a tense and passionate apex. Mournful guitars wane in and out of view while distinctly boom-bap drums ground the track to reality described as full of opposing ideas that make this world simultaneously inhospitable yet a necessary home to inhabit. Rae Isla sidesteps the clichés with earnest declarations of longing for a home she recognizes as flawed, and these honest moments are carried to a painful, celestial finish that finds peace when soaring above the land. -Tucker Pennington

   

New Tombo Crush EP Available for Streaming & Download

Never Looked Better is the new EP from Tombo Crush. A bubbly, synth-generated warmth is countered by the ache of revealing vulnerability. These songs capture the somber state of loneliness and the optimism of companionship. Combining hopeful vibes with haunting ones, the recordings leave an instant imprint.

   

Tatum Gale's "Crocodilian" is a warm-blooded ode to love

It’s hard not to smile when listening to “Crocodilian,” a self-described “little indie bop” by Brooklyn synthpop artist Tatum Gale. It’s an accurate descriptor, given the track’s shuffling measure, it’s kitschy, bright keys, and Gale’s honest lyricism about relationships and, well, crocodiles. The track is accompanied by a music video that’s equally heartfelt, with the artist hitchhiking his way around the city with the help of a friendly anthropomorphized croc; while the visual is silly, it demonstrates Gale’s willingness to bare his soul in a way that’s truly genuine and unabashedly fun. Watch it below. -Connor Beckett McInerney (@b_ck_tt)

We're excited to hear that Radiator Hospital is set to release a new LP, titled Music for Daydreaming, on May 10 via Salinas Records.
