Anoraak - "Figure"
Synth-pop and synthwave band, Anoraak, released a new song entitled "Figure" which is the first single after their 2016 album release, Figure. Their new song follows the same formula their 2013 Wherever The Sun Sets album did. Nothing particularly new with this one but it does have some electrifying synths and soothing vocals from David Grellier. The seven minute track gives off that late night drive through the depths of downtown Miami type of feel. This track is a bittersweet longing for some late night excitement, overall, it is a great late night track to let your mind roam to.
Fog Lake - "Rattlesnake"
Fog Lake, the lo-fi/ indie folk project of Canadian musician Aaron Powell, has been making music since 2011 and has an impressive four studio albums in his discography. After being posted on reputable youtube channels such as Majestic Casual and being posted on music sites such as No Fader, Fog Lake has been surfacing of late. With their new release, "Rattlesnake" they continue the same lo-fi sound. The minimalistic guitar play and cloudy instrumentation bodes well here and Fog Lake seems to continue the same direction they've been going with a little more innovativeness.

The latter has benen immensely successful which currently has a total of over 75 million plays on SoundCloud. With this new track release "SUB ZERO", Uzi continues what made him so successful on his previous two tapes. With a another explosive trap beat produced by Maaly Raw, Uzi spits "counting my dineros, yuh in the mall yeah like I’m Robert De Niro."The simplistic word play with the catchy flow is where Uzi shines best and this track is just another example of that.
Black Marble - Iron Lung
Ghostly International Records own, Black Marble, hasn't released a song since their 2012 album A Different Arrangement. So when they released a track last week some people were excited to say the least. Their new track "Iron Lung" is a hazy piece of gold. This track sounds like My Bloody Valentine and Ride meets Washed Out. The track is very dreamy and has some components of shoegaze and some components of new wave rock. The track is a great backdrop for a long awaited drive to the coast or the bay. Excited to see more from them.
