Girls in Uniform – Like A Star

Nicole Brenny has been Vague-à-bondeing her way around North America lately, leaving her Minneapolis home for Montreal for a few months, and she now finds herself in Brooklyn. It was in Montreal that she launched a brand new project called Girls in Uniform, and we had the privilege of having her play our Pop Montreal party. Her first single is finally out, and it’s a mixture of frantic samply weirdness and soft’n’sweet cooed vocal refrains. Experimental pop at its finest.

Premiered by our Berlin brethren No Fear of Pop.

MP3: Apparition – Singularity

Posted on February 13th, by digits in MP3

apparition
Fitting in well with the Minneapolis electro-pop scene, and sounding not too unlike one of our faves Vague-à-Bonde, Apparition put out a record last year that we only recently found out about. It’s well worth your attention. Opening track “Singularity” is merely the highlight of a really great bunch of songs. Bandcamp has the full story.

Really loving this track from Minneapolis’s Nyteowl, great bedroom R&B over a lush chillwave soundscape. His album Life is out November 13.
