Struck by the synthpop auras of LUV, performing with .paperman in April

For the five minutes that I listened "f a n t a s y l o v e" by LUV, nothing else mattered. The tip-of-the-tongue '80s intro, diffracting into effervescent, luminous meloromanticism left a taste half-metallic, half-citric in my mouth. It was like witnessing the birth of a musical deity, like the ones we've come to know through larger publications: Solange, Blood Orange, Sky Ferreira.

The bedroom project is as youthful as its sound, started by the enigmatic johnny since August 2015, with some material that s/he'd "been working on for years." Listing N'Sync, Prince, Britney Spears, and Ready for the World as major influences, johnny mixed '90s pop, new wave and R&B inspirations with homespun technique, taking on a markedly different sound from the debut single "leave."

"Empress Of, MNDR, Kimbra, ABRA, this wave of female producers all inspired me to start taking my lil bedroom jams more seriously," johnny says.

LUV is currently planning shows in the Los Angeles area with .paperman in April; check back for more info. Until then, listen to the bedroom producer's newest EP and hope that this is anything but a fantasy.- Ryan Mo

Music Video for VUM's "New Girls", streaming on Soundcloud and single release party

When the trio VUM first got together, they had an idea to get music out—in a recent interview with Impose Magazine, Jennifer Pearl thought to "throw everything on the wall to see what sticks." Perhaps to their surprise (definitely to ours), "New Girls" stuck, and stuck around for nearly eight years. While it didn't make the cut for VUM's debut album, we're glad they dusted it off and (after laying new vocals) set it out as the third single to their upcoming LP Cryptocrystalline. "New Girls" carmine pop-noir casts a familiar umbral shadow that long-time listeners can trace back to Strange Attractor, complementing the hypnotic oscillations of "Katrine" and stellar frequencies of "This is the Witch", both released in 2015. 

Watch the music video to "New Girls", the latest track from VUM's upcoming album Cryptocrystalline, out digitally on 3/25 and physically on 5/3 through their own Secret Lodge Recordings, and catch a special (FREE) single release show with them and Intimatchine on the 25th at LA MOTHER- Ryan Mo

Pastel Ghost leaves SF for Brooklyn, plays SXSW

Brainchild of programmer Vivian Moon, who recently relocated from the SF Bay Area to Brooklyn, Pastel Ghost remind us how psychedelia slowly emerged as an important influence in the electronic sound of the '80s, opening the door to the lush dream pop of Cocteau Twins and to My Bloody Valentine's shoegazer sound. The band's electro cover of MBV's 'When You Sleep' sounds like a declaration of intents: shoegazer music where synths trump guitars. Debut LP 'Abyss,' released in early 2015, accomplishes this objective with flair, keeping things interesting with catchy melodies buried in reverb, and showcasing a production that - within a uniform sound - expertly manages sonic variations. If you are heading to SXSW in March, you'll get a chance to see Pastel Ghost there.

We added this song to The Deli's playlist of Best electronic songs by emerging NYC artists - check it out!
