With DJ Aaron Axelsen & Omar
About Icona Pop:
“They established their fizzy synth-pop sound with a single (‘Manners"’) and an EP (‘Nights Like This’) last year. And this month's monstrous (and monstrously catchy) kiss-off ‘I Love It"’-- produced by Patrik Berger (Robyn's ‘Dancing on My Own"’) and written by UK upstart Charli XCX-- is nothing less than one of the best pure pop tracks of the year thus far. The song is the lead single from Icona Pop's forthcoming full-length debut, due out this fall and featuring production from Style of Eye, Elof Loelv, Avant, the Knocks, and more. ‘The album is a reflection of how our lives are right now,’ says Aino Jawo, [one half og the duo]. ‘It's chaos-- but in a good way.’" –Pitchfork
About k. flay:
“k. flay didn’t set out to be a rapper. She started making music as an enjoyable extracurricular during her sophomore year at Stanford University. She now has a catalog that consists of a mixtape of mash-ups, an EP she wrote and produced in a basement, another three-volume mixtape and the just-released EP, ‘Eyes Shut.’ K. Flay’s prolific, self-propelled efforts nabbed her a recording contract with RCA. ‘We Hate Everyone,’ the first single, was co-produced by The Prodigy’s Liam Howlett, and it’s this type of collaboration, unusual in rap, that epitomizes k. flay’s indie style. Jamming in drums and guitar on top of bass-happy beats, her music is ultimately more indie electronic than hip-hop.” –Rolling Stone
About The Orwells:
“The Elmhurst quintet has generated a hell of a lot of buzz; I guess the combination of wild shows, run-ins with the police and a blisteringly Stooges-esque debut record will do that for you. Frontman Mario Cuomo stammered about the stage like a ring leader, directing his band through rattling punk fits while pushing the crowd into a frenzy. Ringing in at just about three minutes, the dizzy blur of ‘Mallrats (La La La)’ showcased much of what The Orwells do best: Buzzcocks-like swirls of scuzz, smart pop hooks and violent scribbles of noise. Listening to the band's debut album, ‘Remember When,’ it's hard not to be impressed at both how mature and how instantly classic it sounds.” –Windy City Rock
