LIV (Lykke Li, Miike Snow’s Andrew Wyatt and Pontus Winnberg, Peter Bjorn & John’s Björn Yttling and producer Jeff Bhasker) dropped their second single last week. Still no word on when we can expect their debut full-length, but “Dream Awake” is a vivid, dream pop gem and a fine consolation while we wait.
Listen to LIV’s first single, “Wings of Love,” here.
A handful of excellent new tracks have dropped recently, including Hot Chip’s “Huarache Lights” and Dan Deacon’s “Learning to Relax”, but it was the latest single from Emile Haynie’s debut LP We Fall that’s been on constant repeat all week. Like previous offerings, Haynie is joined by more famous friends, this time Lykke Li and Romy (The xx). We Fall drops Feb 23/24 via Interscope. I can’t wait to hear more from this album.
