Wowsers. This track is subtle but haunting. Shonk is definitely one to watch. Right now "Habit" is the only song on Soundcloud, but I'd recommend you start following her to stay on top of what's to come.

Here in Winnipeg, the May long weekend is just hours away. It's a big deal. This weekend is like the official start of summer as folks leave the city to go camping or just sit on a patio and throw back some drinks and bask in the warm sunshine we all know will eventually disappear. Somehow this tune from Tokyo's Kikagaku Moyo just encapsulates the feeling of that buzz from a couple beers and the sun.

The new LP Introducing Karl Blau landed in my inbox last week amidst a flurry of new releases and I only got to it this week. I didn't really need an introduction to Blau as I'm a long-time K Records fan and owner of more than one album by The Microphones. Plus he was a member of the band Earth (among my absolute faves) at one point. But now I'm regretting not getting around to this Bella Union release earlier because the track below is a stunner. Clocking in at over 9 minutes, I could deal with it being twice that long.
