Listen: Left Of Field Records- Vol. 3: A New Beginning, For All Of Us

Listen to Left Of Field Records' third installation in their compilation series, ft. Celadon City, POLO, A Sol Mechanic, + more. All proceeds go towards the Australian Suicide Prevention Foundation. Accordingly, the compilation's themes fall within the exploration of music and its effects on mood. Props to the label for their consistent dedication to a wholly worthwhile cause.

"Our focus has always been on the awareness of mental health. After one year as a label this fact still has not changed. Artists from all around the globe have agreed to be apart of this monumental compilation that sees brilliant talents, big and small, showcasing the best of their abilities on one free to download album."


[The 32-track release can be downloaded here name-your-price.]

Listen: Diveo - "Summer Trees"

Ryan Hemsworth's Secret Songs completely dominated this month, putting out a solid single from MEISHI SMILE and releasing a new compilation (ft. Beat Culture, Ratking + more). It's only right, then, that the project closes out January with one of the best songs since its inception. Diveo's "Summer Trees," as Hemsworth puts it, is a perfect example of an artist "starting to lead this new form of mutated pop." While the sound is oft-done as of late, rarely has a producer shown the control Diveo does on this balancing act of melancholy tones and danceable melodies. Check out/download "Summer Trees" below.

Watch: Yumi Zouma - "Catastrophe"


Yumi Zouma have released the second single off their upcoming EP II 10" (out 3/10 on Cascine), following the stellar "Alena" late last year. "Catastrophe" is as expected from the New Zealand pop outfit, capturing the same innate wistfulness and fleeting breathlessness that put them on the blogosphere map. Check out the video above and preorder the release here. [Directed by Allie Avital Tsypin]

Listen: Redux - "Candy"

Check out a new blistering cut from one of our favorite rising producers Redux. As with previous work from the young Parisian beat-maker, "Candy" gently soars over with feathery soundscapes and a true realization of "chill-trap," a genre that Redux seems born to inhabit. It's altogether colorful, bouncy, and laced with proficiency. Listen to/download the track below for free.
