New Jersey electronic artist Com Truise, aka Seth Haley, is a hot topic in the music blogosphere after releasing three new tracks from his upcoming full-length, Galactic Melt, due out July 5. Also reentering The Hype Machine's chart on May 6 is Los Angeles rapper and record producer Tyler the Creator, thanks to his new track featuring fellow Odd Future singer Frank Ocean.
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. Stereogum (stereogum.com) describes one of the three new songs, "Cathode Girls," as a "romantic beat-jammer binding New Order to Boards of Canada to all manner of '80s synth styles."
Tyler the Creator's new track, "She," is the second single from his upcoming 15-track album, Goblin, set to drop May 10. Of the new single, blogger Sunset in the Rearview (sunsetintherearview.com) writes: "Very lo-fi. Tyler's flow is always super unique and original." "There's a lot of anger conveyed in his music," writes blogger Indie Shuffle (www.indieshuffle.com) of Tyler the Creator's style, but "particularly interesting is that this new track 'She' has a bit of a sexy side to it (courtesy of Frank Ocean)."
