Little Boots has a new song!

Diggin' the Debbie Harry-style do

Little Boots is back for good! After releasing the club bangers "Shake" and "I Wish" in late 2011, the English electropop goddess has released yet another gem, "Every Night I Say A Prayer", a Moroder-esque synth-disco number showcasing a sleek, more mature production, along with Boots' coyly seductive vocals which easily recall Kylie Minogue (a major influence on Boots' work). With chanting diva hook-lines and pristine synths, the song – a collaboration with Andy Butler of New York underground disco group Hercules and Love Affair – is best suited for late-night lounging at some upscale club in Europe.

SO DAMN PRETTY. Notice the Flo and Karen O posters behind her!

Best of all, the track is available as a free download on Boots' official SoundCloud page. Yes, you heard me – IT'S FREE!! What you waiting for?? Personally, I prefer the remix by German DJ Tensnake, which ups the tempo to reveal a more urgent, straight-up '80s-influenced sound that is fully intended for the dancefloor. A 12" vinyl limited to 500 copies was released in conjunction with Record Store Day last Saturday (04/21), when Boots also performed a short live set at London's Rough Trade East to support the launch. (Why don't I live in London?? WHY?!!) Gawd, I really hope a second album is in the making, the wait is killin' me.

Oh, and for those of you who live in London (again, WHY), make sure you don't miss Boots' gig at XOYO on May 4 (coinciding with her b'day), with support from up-and-coming synth-funkster Ronika!



It's wonderful to have you back, Bootsie.

Now, here's a little something to brighten your Monday:

3 New Lana Songs Come Out From Upcoming Album "Blue Banisters"

Not even that far off from "Chemtrails Over The Country Club" being released this past March, Lana Del Rey dropped three new singles off her upcoming project, "Blue Banisters." They include the title track, "Text Book," and "Wildflower Wildfire." All three songs seem to merge the worlds of "COCC" with "Norman Fucking Rockwell," specifically Lana's mouthful of a track "Hope is a Dangerous Thing for a Woman Like Me To Have But I Have It." They also seem uncharacteristically more confessional than most of Lana's catalog to date, specifically "Wildflower Wildfire," which alludes to a conflict with her mother. She even starts the track with "Here's the deal," readying to show more of her backstory than she ever has in her decade-plus-long career. The three songs are gorgeous - especially "Text Book," which has a haunting quality to it (she mentions "Black Lives Matter" i

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

You Need to Hear This: Concrete Castles

I first heard of First to Eleven a few years ago thanks to the powers of social media. They are a talented young band straight out of my hometown (Erie, PA). Since I've first heard of them, First To Eleven - which primarily were a social media-based cover band - has revealed an original music incarnation, Concrete Castles.  No matter if they're covering songs or releasing their own music, one thing is evident: Concrete Castles is MASSIVELY talented. Anchored by Audra Miller's powerhouse vocals that are vaguely reminiscent of Hayley Williams, Concrete Castles demand your attention. Although they can fall in that sort of amorphous "indie pop" umbrella, I don't think their sound would be amiss on mainstream radio - top 40 or alternative.  "Wish I Missed U" - their debut album - came out earlier this September, and it's an enjoyable, invigorating listen that would probably make those who were raised on emo or fans of CHVRCHES feel at home. Hell, Anth
