Viet Cong || Bunker Buster (Rough Mix)

I'm a massive fan of the defunct Calgary band Women. Viet Cong just re-released its first EP, previously a cassette-only release but now in MP3 and vinyl format thanks to the great Mexican Summer label. However, this non-EP track entitled "Bunker Buster" is the shit. Note that the band employs ex-Women drummer Scott Munro and Bassist Matt Flegel so this track drips with the ghosts and fog of their previous band. It's fucking uncanny. More of this please.

Mt. Si. || Oh

Who is this? No info on Mt. Si. anywhere, but this track is heaven and was re-posted by RAC. Download at Bandcamp.

SOSMIX 7.10.14

Another great collection of hotness that I can't get enough of. Some of these releases are now available for pre-order or just download where available.

Benoit & Sergio :: Splash

Rubbery electronica + bass and a very nice trajectory of beats (via). No doubt this will be on thousands of summer mixtapes. Pre-order the energetic Your Darkness 12" over at Juno (official release date is July 28 via Visionquest).

Silver Hands :: Skulls (YR SKULL Remix)

I've had a few encounters with Liz Wight's previous act Love Grenades in the past, but Silver Hands emits a much deeper and sensual experience, and in many ways it's just better. "Skulls" oozes its way through deep house, disco (barely) and electro (depending on the remix). This "Skulls" remix in particular -- handled by the band's other half Drew Marcogliese (YR SKULL) -- is one of four featured on the five-track 12" single that dropped this week. A beautiful bass line matched with several floating vocal lines makes this remix the most emotional, minimal, and fully-formed track of the set. I would love to hear an entire album of this caliber from the duo, and I bet you would too.

Grab the collection over at Push the Feeling.

Sima Kim :: Isolated (ft. Almeeva)

Serious Mark Hollis feels on Sima Kim's (South Korea) brilliant setting of ambient-goth-minimal electronica piece "Isolated". The quivering vocal delivery from Almeeva matches the icy background perfectly. Not sure how you top a track as moving as this. Download Sima Kim's amazing Ur Silhouette EP over at Bandcamp.

The KVB :: All Around You

When Shoegaze meets Cold Wave the results can be mesmerizing. Buy the new Out of Body EP from The KVB now at Bandcamp.

Ashrae Fax :: CHKN

Here's a new track from Ashrae Fax, taken from the band's forthcoming album Never Really Been Into It. The record is due August 26 on Mexican Summer.

The reissue of Static Crash is a must-have, here's why.
