In a pretty radical stylistic shift, Detroit-via-Toronto artist Moon King is releasing a Detroit house-inspired album called Hamtramck ’16 on Arbutus Records on August 4th. First track “In & Out” suggests he’s pulling the genre move off nicely.

Utah-via-Toronto songwriter and old friend of the blog Man meets Bear released another naturalistic wonder yesterday June 15th, his latest album Starfishes.
