A Deli Premiere: new electro-pop single from Sunspeaker, plays Gold Sounds 2.2

After his intriguing debut two months ago, Brooklyn-based songwriter/producer Sunspeaker has quickly returned with his second electro-pop single, “Under the Gun,” premiering right here. The track evokes dreamy, disco-like vibes, conjuring up images of a pulsating slo-mo dance-floor. Each facet of this song is packed with slow-burning heat; from the beat’s smooth, sensual feel to the impassioned lyrics, Sunspeaker was able to balance lyrical intensity with groove. Unlike the vocal flexibility heard debut single “I Will Not Love You,” the vocals in this new track tread steadily over a clean yet busy blend of sounds, allowing the production skills of this solo artist to shine. Sunspeaker will be headlining a show at Gold Sounds on Feb 2, catch him playing “Under the Gun” (below) live and stream his debut singles on Soundcloud or Spotify. - Rebecca Carroll

Jäh Division find dub in the music of Ian Curtis, play Secret Project Robot 1.26

Branding oneself as a “psychedelic dub interpretation of Joy Division” is a move certain to raise eyebrows, but Brooklyn noise quartet Jäh Division’s take on the music of Ian Curtis is executed with a remarkable amount of confident experimentation and self-assuredness. While it’s not surprising that Jäh Division started as a joke between roommates Brad Truax and Barry London, a self-described “good smoke and a joke,” their nine-track LP Dub Will Tear Us Apart… Again is more than another sophomoric meme album. Truax and London, in collaboration with members of Oneida and Home, create spacey, discordant soundscapes throughout Dub that rely upon components of Joy Division’s music as a backbone while expanding outwards into something completely different; at face value their music is familiar in melody only, with their phaser-laden employ of the Curtis’ vocal lines from songs like “Disorder” and “Love Will Tear Us Apart,” but the end result is more indicative of the group’s respective electronic instrumental chops. While not for everyone, Dub Will Tear Us Apart is an interesting, defiantly different interpretation of post-punk made by and for those who crave New York’s weirdest sounds.

Jäh Division will play a record release show on January 26th at Secret Project Robot, supported by Mourning A BLK Star. Stream Dub Will Tear Us Apart... Again below. -Connor Beckett McInerney (@b_ck_tt)

Refs to make live debut at Bay’s All Right 03.02

Richard Saunders and Zach Lipkins first met on Craigslist approximately five years ago. The two debuted their collaborative musical effort Refs in 2015 with “Pain Goes Away,” a slow-paced minimal electronic pop track that has since racked up millions of streams on Spotify. The duo has continued to make downtempo, playlist-baiting chill pop in small amounts. Their most recent track, “Stories,” premiered late in 2018 with Saunders’ lightly R&B inflected vocals atop a light but percussive production by Lipkins. This year, Refs will make its first live appearance: you can see the duo live at Baby’s All Right on March 2. – Cameron Carr
