[new] LIGHTS - "Everybody Breaks a Glass"

I’ve been a fan of the sweet sounds of Canadian synth-pop musician LIGHTS since I first heard her debut album The Listening in 2009. "Everybody Breaks a Glass," the lead single off her forthcoming second studio album, featuring Canadian rapper Shad, has me really impressed. Holy Fuck, who produced the track, added the bass I expect from The Weeknd to LIGHTS’ sugary electro style. With hopes that more treats like this are in store, I’m truly looking forward to the new album.

Check out “Everybody Breaks a Glass” in this comic-inspired lyric video.

[new] Four Tet - "Locked"

Yesterday we heard Four Tet's remix of Radiohead's track "Separator," (see below post) and today we're treated with a new track that's all his own. London's famed electronic club Fabric has been releasing tracks and compilations from emerging and established producers since 2001, and "Locked" is their newest installment. The song definitely bears Four Tet's mark, boasting inventive layering, interesting samples, and an attention-grabbing listenability. "Locked" is quite mellow and spacey, perfect for summer heat stupors. The vinyl single will be available from Fabric's label on October 18 in the US.
