“No Shelter” is the first taste from Blouse’s sophomore album Imperium, due out September 17 via Captured Tracks. It’s a straightforward piece of lo-fi rattle pop, as the band trades the mystery of the debut for the rough and tumble ambiance of the garage. Check it out below.
Icelandic acts Sin Fang and Pascal Pinon (who are joined at the hip by producer Alex Somers), recently joined forces for our friends’ Line of Best Fit. Check out their stunning take on co-written track “Babies.”
“In the Nether” is the second single from Whose Blood, the forthcoming album from Polish singer/songwriter Coldair. The hushed vocals, gentle guitar, and horn section makes it a perfect afternoon delight. Take a listen below, or revisit the first Whose Blood cut “Sign” here.

But their melancholy disco/R&B/synth-pop speaks volumes. Listen to the Lune EP below. If you like what you hear, you can grab a full-download for the band’s website.
