With an extremely pop-electronica-type intro, Bob Dimick of Ricksha Radio bursts onto the scene with what may arguably be one of our most exciting debut tracks from an artist that we have seen in a long time.
“Hideaway” is Ricksha Radio’s newest release, following his 2011 project, “Welcome to My World.” And with almost a decade since the last time he released music, this feels almost like a rebrand, a new beginning, a debut release for us- and we are LOVING it.
With Bob’s smooth transitions, sultry vocals, and classic instrumentals, it is clear he has been doing this “music thing” for quite some time. But unlike many artists, he is able to put a modern swing on some classic sounds, and that’s what makes him so interesting.
We are so looking forward to hearing more from this artist, and can’t wait to see what else he has in store for us.
New York City’s Chairlift are back to work after some “time off” collaborating with the likes of Das Racist and Washed Out. The duo have released a new single featuring the title track off their upcoming album, “Amanaemonesia.” Currently, the single’s A-side is available for streaming on their website, but you will likely have to wait or shell out eventually for the B-side, “Peculiar Paradise.”
As if having a sold-out international tour and a critically lauded new album (II) wasn’t enough Crystal Castles have announced that they will be recording a single with The Cure’s frontman and symphonic guru, Robert Smith.
Not In Love will be released in early December on Fiction Records. The single will also feature a couple B-sides. Early acoustic demos of “Celestica” and “Suffocation” will also be included, which is awesome, even though it kind of defeats the purpose of a “single.”
Check out their video for their newest song off of II , “Baptism.”
As of now, Crystal Castles are over in Europe finishing a sold-out tour. They will be stateside soon enough, and if you want to see them you should go here!

Casiokids may have had good reason to cancel the remaining (a once in a life-time show), but they are making it up. The quartet will be back in the states for a select slew of shows.
The band spent the summer winning respect from pop veterans a-ha, even wining some cash from a fund started by the pop stars to help Norway’s up-coming pop stars. After winning the contest, the band was invited to play one of a-ha’s farewell shows in Norway.
The band will be playing a few shows this week all over the country, even taking part at Filter magazine’s Culture Collide festival in Los Angeles.
As if making amends for their canceled shows, the band recently release their newest single “En Vill Hest,” along with two remixes and their music video.
