German duo Session Victim, the sample wizards Hauke Freer and Matthias Reiling, return to Jimpster’s Delusions Of Grandeur imprint with their third album “Listen To Your Heart” of deep house, organic, sample-heavy cuts. The new, 13-track record is the result of a year of cross-continental scripting, started in their Hamburg studio and wrapped up stateside in San Francisco’s Room G Studios where the duo had worked on their 2014 second LP “See You When You Get There”. In true Session Victim fashion, the album’s lead single “Bring It Back” is a sublime slice of soul-infused house. Blast it above.

Session Victim’s album “Listen To Your Heart” arrives on June 2nd. Pre-order it here.

It’s been a long time coming, but Peaking Lights, the Los Angeles-based psychedelic synth-pop duo of Aaron Coyes and Indra Dunis, will finally drop their fifth studio album “The Fifth State Of Consciousness” in June. Produced in the band’s Dreamfuzz studio over the course of the last two years, the 12-track, double LP follows 2014’s “Cosmic Logic” on Weird World and it marks both a departure from the new and a return to the old, with a whole new twist on the psychedelic dub-pop they’ve become revered for. Take a ride with the album’s first single “Everytime I See The Light”. It’s such a jam!

The album “The Fifth State Of Consciousness” arrives on June 16 via Two Flower Records.

Hamburg-based, Baltimore-raised singer Sophia Kennedy is gearing up to release her self-titled debut album on DJ Koze and Marcus Fink’s Pampa Records. The record, which marks the label’s first “songwriting record”, reveals her as a dramatic romanti-cist and distanced diseuse, as a deft lyricist and master of melody. It was produced by Sophia Kennedy and Mense Reents (who is known as being a member of Die Vögel, Egoexpress, Die Goldenen Zitronen). “I want to take tradition to the limits, to where it becomes extreme,” Kennedy says. “You just can’t be afraid that it turns out to be pop music.” Today, we’re treated to a stream of the album’s first single “Build Me A House”, a stellar track full of smoldering piano melodies.

Sophia Kennedy’s self-titled debut album drops on April 28th via Pampa Records.
Pre-order it here.

Sydney’s Retiree, consisting Matt Crowley, Tori Holleman and Marco Vella, have returned to Plastic World with their new single “Jan” after last year’s great first single for the label “Continental”.

I started writing it on a train from Germany to Amsterdam on my way to my uncles funeral. The whole song is sort of equal parts reflective, sad and celebratory.”
