Elohim recently delivered a new single titled “TV,” exhibiting once again the sincerity and depth of her unbridled ability to express. One might expect a track that starts off with the phrasing, “I’m depressed as fuck,” would have difficulty steadying listeners, but the composition and sweetly somber vocals etch themselves across the consciousness.
The electro-pop track is well-fleshed out and has an abundance of layers and transitions. Like changing channels, she evokes mental images of a glitchy heaven. Elohim harmonizes with a chorus in one round of the hook and sings, “I keep the TV on to tune out the sound/my mind’s way too loud/my mind is way too loud.” This message creates a feeling of interconnectedness through individual anxiety, and for the moment, reconciles it.
“TV” is the first track from an upcoming project that Elohim has been quite vocal about on social media. She has gone far to be direct in her message and even posted a well-written explanation of her lyrical use of “spaghetti legs” from the track on Instagram.
Elohim shares her strength through her songwriting and in doing so enables her fans to cope in a hyperactive often disjointed society. She creates a space where admitting to these sometimes senseless habits is okay and connects people. Elohim paradoxically and fluidly uses the great unifier—music—to connect people through their disconnect. Truly an inspiriting concept delicately wrapped for a troubled yet idealistic generation.

It’s most important day of the week: New Music Friday. With the overwhelming amount of tunes hitting the airwaves today, Dancing Astronaut has you covered with the latest edition of The Hot 25.
Star-studded collaborations rule this week’s NMF. Ekali and 1788-L have joined forces to craft a formidable, bass-heavy collaboration, “R U I N,” and Gareth Emery and Ashley Wallbridge continue their powerful slew of releases together with “Lionheart.” Netsky taps Lil Wayne and Bazzi for “I Don’t Even Know You Anymore,” and Zedd and Katy Perry deliver their radio-friendly “365.” Feed Me returns for the second Friday in a row with “Sleepless,” and Kygo releases his first single of the year with “Think About You.” GRiZ and Matisyahu take a stand on gun violence in “A New Day,” and Madeaux brings a sultry, dark atmosphere with “ADDICTED2.” Andrew Bayer delivers an “In My Next Life” mix of 2018’s “In My Last Life” on Anjunabeats. Goshfather puts his own disco-infused twist on Madonna‘s “Like a Prayer” in his new remix, and Liquid Stranger teams up with CloZee for the eerie “Ceremony.” Kill Paris debuted his new album for Valentine’s Day, touting collaborations with the likes of Fatherdude, Big Gigantic, and more, and Armin Van Buuren tugs at listeners’ heartstrings via “Lonely For You” with Bonnie McKee.
As each week brings a succession of new music from some of electronic music’s biggest artists, here’s a selection of tracks that shouldn’t be missed this NMF.
EDM Sauce newcomers, Rat City release their infectious new single ‘Kind Of Love’ featuring vocals from Norwegian newcomer Isak Heim, with a dynamic animated video, evocatively depicting a dysfunctional relationships. ‘Kind Of Love’ is a soulful dance pop ditty, that breaks out into a full band fanfare, lead by topnotch Scandinavian songwriting. The project was created
LOCKN’ Music Festival takes place August 22nd-25th, 2019 at Infinity Downs Farm and Oak Ridge Farm in Arrington, VA, at the foot of the Blue Ridge, in Central Virginia, 35 miles south of Charlottesville, and approximately 100 miles from both Washington, DC and Richmond, VA. With exceptionally creative programming, non-stop music and an incomparable celebration of everything the region has to offer from food to beverage to the stunning beauty of its location, LOCKN’ is one of the most revered modern American festivals.
While Billy is away however, Ja is apparently hard at work with his own new venture, ICONN. Similar to the Fyre app, ICONN aims to connect people with high profile talent like Cardi B and Snoop Dogg for private event bookings. When recently questioned in an airport, the rapper recently told TMZ,
“In the midst of chaos is opportunity. I’m working on a lot of new things.” [Fyre] is most iconic festival that never was. I have plans to create the iconic music festival, but you didn’t hear it from me.”
“Iconic” is an interesting choice of words here. Sounds like some second rate marketing campaign for Ja’s ICONN platform is already in the works.
“On April 26, electronic music pioneer Amon Tobin will release Fear in a Handful of Dust – his first album in eight years since his triumphant ISAM. The first single off the album, “On a Hilltop Sat the Moon”, is a haunting work. A haze of delicately rendered melodies that move like creases in time, […]
Great news, fans of “acclaimed abstract hip-hop” music: Berkeley, CA-based mainstay Odd Nosdam is apparently all done tidying-up his recording space and has announced the April 12 release of a fresh new album via the fine folks at Alien Transistor.
Composed “entirely of found sounds,” the forthcoming Mirrors consists of eight brand new instrumental grooves and warped sound collages “sourced from rare and private press vinyl.”
And speaking of VINYL: in order to shake things up this time around, the 20-year veteran and Anticon co-founder reportedly designed the album “specifically” for the medium, with the record’s A and B sides intended to unfold on your turntable like “a pair of cohesive psychedelic dreams.” Sounds like you might want to stay away from high-cognition tasks like operating heavy machinery or obsessively folding all your stuff.
And provided you’re not also currently SO INTO the concept of tidying up that you’re afraid to bring any new physical possessions into your home, you can pre-order the album here and drop an imaginary needle on the album’s dusty and crumb-laden first single “Cookies” down below:
