NEW MUSIC: Moonbabies; Dads; Aiden Young; Tiny Moving Parts

Moonbabies, “Raindrops”

–dreamy pop by Swedish husband and wife duo, Carina Johansson Frick and Ola Frick. just wonderful with layers of joy and spirit.

Dads, “I’ll Be the Tornado”

–reminiscent of Sonic Youth and The Replacements, New Jersey alt-rockers Dads have a new album out–I’ll Be the Tornado[6131 Records]– and are on tour. Recorded by Neil Strauch (Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, Iron & Wine, Owen) at MinBal Studio in Chicago, IL and mastered by Carl Saff (Dinosaur Jr., Guided By Voices, Speedy Ortiz) which explains the retro-cool sound.

Dads touring with Tiny Moving Parts.

Tiny Moving Parts, “Entrances and Exits”

–the Minn. band launched mini versions of themselves into space for the song’s extremely cool video. Pleasant Living [Triple Crown Records] is out now.

“We sent three bobble heads replicas of ourselves into space using a 600 gram weather balloon,” explains singer/guitarist Dylan Matthiesen of Tiny Moving Parts. “The 2 hour flight was captured by a GoPro camera enclosed in a styrofoam cooler alongside a GPS tracker and a stack of heat packs to help brave the -60 degree F (-15 C) temperatures. The spacecraft reached a height of over 80,000 ft (24,384 meters), capturing the Earth’s curve and the beauty of a world just beyond our grasp.”

Aiden Jude, “Words” ft Lilly Anne Merat

–NYC DJ/producer Aiden Jude uses luscious trance-beats to bolster the gorgeous lyrics by Lilly Anne Merat. the stand-out on this track is Lilly’s strong yet alluring vocals.
