Dim Sum – Is It Fine

Laid back and sunny is the new Dim Sum track, ‘Is It Fine’. This is the first single from the up coming EP due out this September. The track is an indie electronic pop tune with jangly guitars and a heavy bass sound. The vocals are cool and relaxed and the vibe is just chill. Dim Sum is a producer from France.

The Lovepools – Cut Me Slack!

Reminds me a bit of MGMT meets Passion Pit with a pinch of Empire of the Sun. This energetic tune has a fun vocal melody that centers around the idea of childhood dreams yet to be realized and the strive to fulfill them. The synth parts remind me quite a bit of MGMT and how they have this swirling vibe to them. The vocals and harmonies are well done and fit the mood perfectly. Really dig the piano lead line in the chorus and the melody of it.

Welcome Center – Is This All There Is?

Think a cross between Death Cab for Cutie and LCD Soundsystem and you land pretty near to this new releases from Welcome Center. This number has expressive vocals, rocking drums and synth elements. Dig that plucky bassline and Jesse Smiths’ voice riding high over it. Welcome Center is Jesse Smith and Aaron Sternick.
