Take a ride with “Skulls”, the darkly new single from Röyksopp’s fifth and final traditional album “The Inevitable End”, their first full-length since 2010′s “Senior”, which will arrive on November 11th via Cherrytree/Interscope. The 12-track album finds the Norwegian producers Svein Berge and Torbjørn Brundtland move into “darker subject matter, with emphasis on the lyrical content. This candid approach feels very both personal, sincere and conclusive,” they say. “With this album it became clear we wanted to make an album in a classical sense even if it’s the last one we make…We feel like this is a goodbye to the traditional album format.”

“The Inevitable End” will feature guest appearances from Jamie McDermott of orchestral pop group The Irrepressibles, Man Without Country’s Ryan James, Norwegian singer/songwriter Susanne Sundfør and Robyn. Stream the album’s opener “Skulls” above and watch the new video for “The Inevitable End” version of their Robyn collaboration “Monument” below. Directed by Stian Andersen, the video was shot on Röyksopp and Robyn’s “Do It Again” tour through 2014. Pre-order the album here.

We just can’t get enough of Andras & Oscar’s smooth house tunes. While their soulful track “Everytime I Go” is still on repeat on our car stereo, the duo of Melbourne’s artists and close friends Andy Wilson, aka Andras Fox, and Oscar S. Thorn, aka Oscar Key Sung, have dropped this one-shot video for their superb second single “Looking Back”, taken from their upcoming new LP “Café Romantica”. This clip features lots of friends, some nice dance moves and animals. According to Andras Fox, the video is a “direct homage to one of my favourite Australian bands, The Reels, and their incredible clip for ‘I Don’t Love You Anymore’.”

Andras & Oscar’s new album “Café Romantica”, the follow-up to last year’s mini-LP “Embassy Café”, will land on October 17th via Chapter Music/Dopeness Galore. You can pre-order your copy here.

Dutch newcomers Harm Coolen and Merijn Scholte Albers, aka Weval, first caught our attention with their “Half Age” EP, which was released last year on Atomnation. Freshly signed to Kompakt, the boys are getting ready to drop their debut release for the label, a four-track EP called “Easier”. Our first taste of that forthcoming record is lead cut “Gimme Some”, a perfectly crafted track that combines rousing beats and claps, alongside an array of heavenly pads, ardent vocal snippets and glistening melodies. It’s a superb tune worthy of repeat listens.

Weval’s new “Easier” EP will arrive on November 24th via Kompakt.
