A period of unseasonably warm days, a period of unseasonably hot new music: enter Cliffhanger, a playlist to give you that tickle of a hot summer night, once more. The playlist is part of Team Poule's larger series frivolously entitled Bright Clouds. Each playlist is a selection of new songs, made available on Soundcloud and Spotify, for those interested. Here now, goes a new one for the late October days of the year.
#1 Delsbo Beach Club - All The Way Home. Debut single by the curly quartet, a dreamy tune with a great warm lo fi feel to it. Out now on the charming Rama Lama, and premiered on CLASH. Stockholm, Sweden.
#2 BRAUN - Gardens. Healthy new single and vintage 80s summer day vibe that is hard to find elsewhere. Off his debut album that is out now on Diving Bell. Portland, Oregon.
#3 Honeymilk - Havslåten. Lovely light guitar pop jam that lifts you right up and leaves you with a kiss. Off their second album to be released in January 2018 on Birds Records. Stockholm, Sweden.
#4 Pastel Coast - Araignée. Brilliantly fuzzy indie pop jam from this duo, no wonder they recently played with Beach Fossils. This piece comes off their EP Vague Noire, out now. Boulogne-sur-Mer, France.
#5 Stina Stjern - New Explorers. Somewhat dark pop song with a driving guitar and hypnotizing vocals on top, beaut. Her debut album is set for release in November on Sellout. Oslo, Norway.
#6 JW Ridley - Jaguar Spring. Marvelous driver song apparently produced in his bedroom. Stiff guitars, and healthy dose of reverb. Off his debut EP that is out now on Some Kinda Love / PIAS. London, UK.
#7 Vilde - Just Visiting. Another jam of his album project Study/Dance which saw him releasing an all new track every month. The hence 12-track album came out last month, check it out, great dreamy electronic pop songs. Stockholm, Sweden.
#8 Safetalk - Gold of the Highest. Dreamy somewhat psychedelic soft pop jam carried by radiant synth and the feel of a 1980s outer space movie, out now on their own label. Paris, France.
#9 Miles Dismond - All to Myself. Super smooth jazzy piece of music, a track of his debut EP to be out soon. Berkeley, California.
#10 Neon June & Verday La Negrita - Spaceships. Star of the playlist this one, an unbelievable funky vibe powered by an overly infectious saxophone and Verday's smooth vocals in the driver seats, steaming hot and pure groove. Baltimore, Maryland & Los Angeles, California.
#11 Pleasure Systems - Crumbs. Somewhat sad but ultimately uplifting blend of indie pop, some folk and healthy handful of synths. Track comes off his debut album that is out now on Antiquated Future. Olympia, Washington.
And that's it then, a lovely group of people making music, connected with each other on this shining playlist. Find the list on Soundcloud and Spotify. Team Poule says, ...aaaand scene.
