King Stingray, King Stingray
The 9 projects you should stream right now

The debut album from Yolŋu five-piece King Stingray presents a hooky, appealingly fresh take on surf-rock. Touching on disco, blues rock and classic jangle — and in no short supply of blustery riffs — King Stingray transposes the ancient tradition of manikay onto modern and classic styles. The result is a record that's cheeky and profoundly charismatic.

Royel Otis, Bar N Grill

Royel Otis' debut EP Bar N Grill is a collection of sweet, melodic pop that harkens back to the halcyon era of 2000s and 2010s indie. Built around skeletal arrangements and easy melodies, this is unassuming, smartly crafted pop.

Boy Scouts' Taylor Vick and Ezra Furman collaborators Sam Durkes and Trevor Brooks are Art Moore, a new three-piece whose self-titled debut drops today on ANTI-. These songs find Vick writing filmic vignettes focussing on imaginary scenes — friendship breakups, bereavement, and so on — and yielding rare emotional insights in the process.

Elio, Elio's Inferno
The 9 projects you should stream right now

Canadian pop upstart Elio has released Elio's Inferno, her debut full-length. Featuring singles "Superimpose" and "Read The Room", it's a smart, wryly funny collection, moving away from the bedroom pop of Elio's past work and towards sardonic, aughts-inspired pop.
