Whats up lovers. Thank you once again for your patience with my tardiness on this episode while I lose my mind in Whistler, Canada. The trip has almost come to a conclusion, so you can expect the regular new music podcasts to return with much tighter timing from here on.

There are some bangin tunes in this episode, and I’ve led with one of the catchiest numbers I’ve heard in a while. Banks is a delightful young lady from LA in the States. She is about to release her debut album, Goddess, with Beggin For Thread being the lead single from it. If this track is anything to go off, we can expect the album to be a cracker.

Seattle based production duo ODESZA are also about to release an album in the coming few days. I’ve pulled a couple of tunes from my advance copy. They haven’t lost their signature deep, rolling bass sound on this one, so I’m stoked.

I’ve also been obsessed with a tune from super new up and comer, cln, who hails from Australia. This dude has some serious future if he can keep releasing tracks as good as this one. Turn it right the way up.

American trippers Beats Antique have just dropped a new tune, entitled Sideswipe. It contains the same super tight world and electronic fusion sound that they have made their own. Super cool.

Swedish dreampop group Postiljonen have also released a very solid album in Skyer. They sound a bit like M83 in their quieter moments, with dreamy, swirling music surrounded by soothing vocals and punchy sax. Yes, the description sounds strange, so just listen to it.

Other brilliant songs that are must-listens are the Chainsmokers remix of Jose Gonzales’ tune Step Out; a super catchy number from Vacationer; and some good old fashioned rock and roll from Eternally Dizzy.

Hoping this mix finds you happy and well, and you enjoy the beats. Until next time :-)
