Relax, sit back and let the day unwind, let go of the struggle and enjoy the moment. Lips Songs brings the gentle casio synth into the background of our day like a soft breeze on a cool august evening. The minimalistic and humble pace of this Brooklyn New York solo artist is true easy listening. There’s a slight Corrine Bailey Rae cuteness that is inexorable but pleasant and brings an sweet innocence to the tracks. You could just reach out and pinch the song’s cheeks.

The Shoes is a two man electronic music group from Reims, France. Their debut album crack my bones just came out and is a synthed up electro beat pumper with many tracks that fans of Calvin & Harris would love.
From the San Francisco California/ Hason Ohio based duo electronic music group Andain springs a fount of light-weight beautiful trance music that is perfect for the soft sound music lover. Their soft airy vocals and music box chimes paint dreamy love songs and emotive soundscapes. Many of their other tracks fall square into the dance trance genre with steady pulsing drum beats and long fade-in fade-out synth intros and pumping heartbeats with high-hat accompaniment. However, this song Promises, along with the rest of the songs on their soon to be released full debut album should prove more diverse than their previous works that they began with when they were first founded in 2001. The group has recollected and I’m looking forward to the rest of what their new album.
Andain’s new sound movement is familiar to fans of Imogen Heap, M83, Kate Havnevik and other creators of love inducing electronic music appropriate for any fantasy film, authors of deeply emotive and powerful music who tend to incorporate more classical instruments and more classical vocal elements.
