PREMIERE: LUKKA's psych sound goes electro in new video "Feed Me"

“God keeps rushing through your fingers, as the hour of life slowly disappears.” Such cryptic statements are an old hat for New York psych performer LUKKA, who on new song “Feed Me” splits the difference between the metaphysical and tangible through an engrossing mix of electronic and psychedelic. Notably more synth-driven than the project’s 2018 debut ENCOUNTER, the track’s momentum is found in an abiding, lively arpeggio and strengthened by lush, echoing power chords evocative of outfits like Unknown Mortal Orchestra and POND. This blend keeps things grounded yet atmospheric, incorporating the right amount of psych headiness and keyboard-friendly indie; such instrumentation also provides the perfect space for LUKKA’s free-form lyricism, a spacey falsetto that modulates between themes empirical and spiritual (and which inevitably become entangled in the track’s later half). You can stream the track now, as well as watch its visuals (created by artists Simone Brillarelli and Nicola Giorgio) below.

Magic Bronson bring live energy home with single "Tell All Your Friends"

Imagine the energy of a summer festival where Blink-182, Mac DeMarco, and MGMT are all playing at the same time. Magic Bronson have tapped that energy in the form of their new single "Tell All Your Friends", an example of their style where indie rock meets EDM. Although they're stripped of the ability to share their explosive sound on stage this season, the duo of Michael Nicastro and Matt Lieberman still have plenty of music to share this year; "Tell All Your Friends" is the first single from an album due to drop this fall. With more releases planned, Magic Bronson are bringing the party to your home; without the crowds, jacked prices for water, and heat, having your own festival might not be so bad. Take a listen to "Tell All Your Friends" below. - Will Sisskind

Boot quietly tune out the chaos on new track "Bomb Song"

I described Boot’s self-titled EP from last year as an effort that focused predominantly on indoor drama — both the cozy and the stiflingly uncomfortable — so it’s fitting their new single would drop in the middle of an extended period spent inside. Predominantly acoustic (with some nice slide guitar accents noodling among the instrumentation), new track “Bomb Song” deals with a comfortable day at home upended by the news of an incoming missile, though its characters seem to take the news in stride, opting to cuddle, watch movies, and go to bed ahead of their immediate incineration. Such interactions seem par for the course for songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Benjamin Carbone; much in the same way the various premises of the tracks on 2019’s Boot are overshadowed by a focus on human behaviors, “Bomb Song” is able to set aside news of a forthcoming apocalypse and emphasize the much greater importance the people in our lives have in comparison. It’s a quiet soundtrack for human companionship, the type of sensitive songwriting that’s necessary during our very strange times — stream it below. —Connor Beckett McInerney
