“Anthracnose” by KRON (Premiere)

Based in Chinatown, KRON is the new project of Michael Sherer, Sam Newell, and Sean Krell (of Mirror Talk). Armed with an arsenal of modular/analog synths (and no vocals), they create an ominous soundscape as if a malevolent mainframe was possessed by retro video game soundtracks. Here’s their latest leaked single, “Anthracnose,” off their self-titled debut album which drops October 21st via Ring The Alarm.

And here’s the track’s studio video which aptly captures the engrossing experience of their live shows.

“Can You Hear Me Knocking” by Druzy

Druzy is the collaborative project of South Bay denizens Brianna Conroy (vocals) and Luc Alexiades (production). Together, the coed duo creates what they dub as “kaleidoscope glimmer pop” via midtempo retro beats, subtle space synths, and a very sultry voice such as on their latest single “Can You Hear Me Knocking.”

“When I found you, I wanted nobody else.”
