After the success of 2004's Coming on Strong and 2006's The Warming, the five members of Hot Chip gear up for the release of their third full-length, Made in the Dark. The album's title track finds the band–previously known for its jumpy, soul-infused electro-pop–pushing emotional lyrics and chilling harmonies over minor chords and mournful pianos. Gorgeous.

Marbert Rocel is Compost’s latest signee, and the trio of Marcel Aue, Robert Krause, and Antje Seifarth pack their debut full-length, Speed Emotions with a frenzy of house, jazz, and electro. Emotionally intense, the tracks on this album are equally appropriate for the dancefloor or a quiet night at home.
We all know Luca Venezia as bass heavyweight Drop the Lime, but with his Curses moniker, he explores entirely different territory–the early '90s. On "Hungry for Love," Venezia unfolds a strange mutation of house music that seems to defy rhythm itself, yet is entirely irresistible when it comes to dancing. Add a few shades of electro, dubstep, and grime, and you have... well, we're not really sure what it is, but it's catchy as hell and we love it.
Here's another track from those crazy guys in Panther. Charlie Salas-Humara and drummer Joe Kelly let the drums and vocals rip on this one, from their forthcoming and highly anticipated 14 KT God. Listen closely for a few political references as well, a new direction for Humara and his ever-evolving songwriting.
That French Touch sound the whole world is loving right now definitely came from somewhere, and Everloving Records' compilation B.I.P.P.P. strives to show fans where.

Tune in for the original take on robot-rock.

After working with the producers like DJ Clark Kent, Illmind, and DJ Babu, Torae is ready to release his debut album, Daily Conversation, and the New York-based artist has gathered a sampling of some of hip-hop's finest for the occasion. 9th Wonder, Black Milk, Khrysis, and Marco Polo enhance the thoughtful lyrics and watertight production here, and none other than the legendary DJ Premier produced the album's lead single, "Get it Done." Just another day in the life of Torae.
