French artist Wendy Killmann has a new EP, Top To Bottom, out next week under his Rose Tiger name. A romantically vicious image, the music also uses beautiful synths and new-wave inspired pop to create aggressive, sometimes frantic sounds. And there are dinosaurs.
To hear all his music, check out his SoundCloud.
“ROSE TIGER is the brainchild of French artist Wendy Killmann, a young man who dreams of a parallel world where humans coexist with dinosaurs and whose musical taste is inspired by 80s British new-wave (Tears For Fears, Depeche Mode), 90s video games (Final Fantasy VII, Pokémon Blue) and favourite Manga theme music from his childhood (Dragon Ball Z, Gundam Wing).
His first EP/Comic titled « From Top To Bottom » will be released November 17th along with an 8-page comic book by famous Instagram artist Sibylline Meynet. A video for the song Submarine (Where Have You Been?) will be released on the same day as the EP.”

When someone describes your music as “Sade in Space,” you listen. It’s not a perfect analogy (no one but Sade can sound like Sade in space), but it’s great for us how close London duo Silk Cinema gets with its latest single “Disappear.” Music to feel lonesome and beautiful to and to live for tonight. Looking for trouble but already found beauty. Reminds me too of Rhye’s mysterious grooves. Beat-driven music you can enjoy in a club and also in a car. Would love to hear more new music soon.
Check out a more upbeat band remix of “Disappear” here.

Now that Blade Runner has entered my mind again, I’ve been in that dark, synthy mood lately and have been seeking out music that takes me to a future LA in which I feel despondent and dreamy in the snow. Greek producer May Roosevelt takes me there. The way she builds her songs and gives them room to grow is excellent, and I found myself getting lost and repeating “Air” several times, never wanting it to end. Influenced by Massive Attack, Bach, Bjork, traditional Greek, and Byzantine chants, her electronica is haunting in the best way.
Her latest release Junea came out this week via Inner Ear and is available via Bandcamp.
I hear lots of Charli XCX in Blondage, a Copenhagen pop act that makes undeniable bangers with as little instrumentation and as minimalist of a sound as possible. Latest single “Call It Off” is undeniably great and I can’t wait to hear what comes next.
“Blondage is a Copenhagen-based pop-duo formed by Esben Andersen and Pernille Smith-Sivertsen where the two are making electronic pop music for fans of Flume, MØ and Nao.”

I love the mystery of Sal Dulu. I know nothing about this musician (except the Ireland connection) and that the music sounds like the back corner of my mind driving along an empty highway at night thinking about nothing and everything. The music is vast and sexy. It’s worth your time. I also love “Duluoz Dream.”
