A Deli Premiere: The Waking Point covers Nirvana's "Something In The Way"

We covered Sadie Belica's single "Bad Girl" earlier this summer; now, under her moniker The Waking Point, she's released a cover of Nirvana's "Something in the Way". Faithful to the original, Belica echoes Kurt Cobain's darkness and the urgency of his voice, while adding her own touch to the classic grunge track. Layers of sound and reverb give the song new depth without muddling it, so that Nirvana fans will recognize and accept the cover as a suitable homage to Kurt's vision. Take a listen to "Something in the Way" below. - Will Sisskind

MishCatt provides a mood lift with new single "Goofy"

The summer's half over, and yet with the world as it is, it may feel like the summer hasn't even begun. Costa Rican pop artist Michelle Gonzalez a.k.a. MishCatt comes to us with her new single "Goofy", which she bills as "therapy for mood elevation". The electric blend of pop and jazz mixed with Gonzalez's sultry voice makes it a song of the summer contender, and the team behind it (Carl Falk, Albin Nedler, and DYO) have produced pop hits for artists such as Madonna and Ariana Grande, giving "Goofy" the power to rise up the charts. For anyone thinking that MishCatt sounds familiar, she performed an acoustic version of "Fades Away" at an Avicii tribute concert last year in Stockholm; fans of the departed EDM artist may have heard her there. Take a look at the sunny video for "Goofy" below. - Will Sisskind

Disco Shrine provides summer pop bliss with "Future Memories"

There's no real song of the summer this year, given the limitations upon any sort of activities where someone might blast said song of the summer from a car radio or a boombox or a beachfront DJ setup. But that's not going to stop musicians of all kinds from trying to make one. Disco Shrine, aka Persian Barbie, has a new track out called "Future Memories", and it's a crunchy track that mixes dream pop with headbanging rock to create a tasty summer cocktail of a song. The accompanying music video gets its vintage look from being filmed on a Nineties-era camcorder in locked-down LA. For anyone looking for a fresh addition to their summer playlist, even if that playlist won't leave the confines of their own home, "Future Memories" is one to pick. It'll appear on Disco Shrine's upcoming debut EP xoxo, disco later this summer. Take a look at the video for "Future Memories" below. - Will Sisskind





Connect to dreams with Aalok Bala's hypnotic "Moon Juice"

Aalok Bala's sophomore single "Moon Juice" defies explanation, but Bala seeks to create music that helps people transcend any earthly reason. A blend of synths, Andean flutes, and effected percussion and vocals, Bala toys with sound to create hypnotic melodies and arrangements. The video for "Moon Juice" shows the kind of psychedelic visions Bala seeks to create with her music. Whooshing 3D environments of breathing alien landscapes, temples to unknowable deities, and windows into alternate worlds accentuate the spiritual inspiration that feeds Bala's artistic vision. "Moon Juice" follows Bala's debut single "Sueño", and will appear on her debut EP Sacred Mirror. Take a look at the video for "Moon Juice" below. - Will Sisskind
