Sounds: Dot.s // Lemons

Atlanta-based five-piece Dot.s has recently released Lemons, a sick groove of live instrumentation (mostly percussion and vintage synthesizers) over a CR-78 drum-machine pattern.

Walking the line somewhere between the artier side or rock and the kinetic rhythms of dance music, the track is lyrically an ode to the massively unhelpful idioms and clichés passed down by older generations.

Sounds: Wutip // All My Sins

East London-based Wutip has put out this very British garage rock track that you’ve got to hear. Blending scrappy guitars, raucous choruses, punchy lyrics and political sentiment, “All My Sins” isn’t like the shoegaze, bedroom pop, surf rock music that you’re hearing — and while we love those genres, this tune blasts in ways that only punk can.

Hear it for yourself x

Disco is dead, as it should be. It was a weird, drug fueled pop culture that produced mediocre music and bad haircuts. But from the corpse of disco grew a variety of interesting, pop/electronic dance music that took over the late night club scene. Royal Stud offers their own take on the post-disco movement with this new, psychedelic track.
