Vibrant is a fitting description for Canadian singer/songwriter, Joanie Wolkoff and her musical creations. She's studied in Paris, modeled in Tokyo and tattooed pigs in rural China. After a traumatic event overseas, she decided to take a chance on Brooklyn and form electro-pop group Her Habits.
Their debut EP, released January 26, Northerner is self-aware pop music. It takes electronic risks while maintaining a reflective beauty. It's also accompanied with an illustrated manual created by Wolkoff depicting habits of women. She collected stories of feminine habits like, "She assembles weird costumes at night."Read More
It starts with the cool electronic soul of FYFE and creeps into Cineplexx's Argentinian disco. A splash of garage rock and a lot of international artists this playlist breaks borders and bursts a part genre molds. Get into it.
"Everything Is Everything" / Gabriel Garzón-Montano
This is what happens when you mix funky vocals, incredible bass and soul. It's perfect.
"Te Quiero" / Cineplexx
Just skip to this song if you want to pull some shapes.
"River" / Ibeyi
It's more than afrobeat, it's cleansing for the soul. That's all you need to know.
Mix together the drugged-out dance of Cherub, the melodic synths of Justice and the sky-high, silky voice of Baths and you'll end up with the indie-pop stew of VERSKOTZI.
A musical project of Joey Verskotzi (lead singer, songwriter and producer), Verskotzi is from a small town in Southern Minnesota. New Ulm, for any of you familiar with the area...and they’re releasing new EP Waving out December 18.
Waving takes place in a forever-twilight kind of landscape. Constantly traveling on buses en route to parties with a plethora of drugs or the morning after drive, coming down from a rough trip. VERSKOTZIi’s latest work glimmers with the intensity of a thousand disco balls, and it’s irrefutably catchy.
Strong, pulsating synths in “Sleepless One” pulls you into an explosive club chorus. The lyrics jump from blatant to descriptive, “I’m feeling too unstable, to stay away from the drugs on the table” is followed with “My mind, a brush, just leaving it’s paint strokes.” It’s not something you’d sit and analyze, but it’s a helluva dance track.
“Mayday” doesn’t have the same catchy hook and chorus, the song instead builds on itself. You're not sure where it's taking you but before you know it, funky guitar and synth-sax carry you through the song.
Waving marries intricate synth details with daring disco melodies. It bursts into a dance able solar-flare -- if you’re into that kind of thing.
the video for “Sleepless One” includes a bunch of motorcycle cowboys singing indie-pop. And Joey makes a cameo at 3:42.
The August SnS playlist features new music from Speedy Ortiz, Sunboy, Wampire and hidden gems from Montreal band, The Backhomes, Capgun Coup from Omaha and Cool Sounds from Australia. A unique flair comes from each town, but the songs reside on a similar lazy, late summer wavelength.
Slip into a cool summer night or a steaming hot afternoon with new electronic, rock, jangle pop and whatever else they're calling it these days.

- Esta. - Lexo
