New Jersey electronic artist Com Truise, aka Seth Haley, is a hot topic in the music blogosphere after releasing another free track from his just-released full-length, Galactic Melt. Also climbing The Hype Machine's chart on August 18 is Tokyo indie-pop band Möscow Club.
Com Truise gained some buzz last summer for his '80-inspired EP
Cyanide Sisters and, more recently, for remixing tracks from Daft Punk's
Tron: Legacy soundtrack. He also has been releasing a slew of free tracks from his new album, including the latest, "Ether Drift," "a synth heavy trip through the cosmos," writes blogger
Möscow Club represents Japan in this month's Music Alliance Pact's (MAP) monthly listing of up-and-coming music acts from around the world. "Like similarly ocean-centric artists Best Coast and Beach Fossils, Möscow Club turns simple melodies into irresistible beach-blanket pop," writes blogger Make Believe Melodies.
