ELECTRO ROUNDUP: Mood Robot / Ellie Herring / LOYAL


Trying something a little different this week. Rather than our usual Remix Roundup segment, we’re rounding up a trio of recent electronic numbers that caught our ears and will serve as a complimentary companion for your Saturday night. The first offering is from the nascent LA-based act Mood Robot, who take bedroom beats to the next level with their single “Drip.” Sedative synths and addictive hooks is enough to put this group–who just released their debut EP The Story We Tell Ourselves on your radar.

Next is newcomer Ellie Herring, an up-and-coming producer from Kentucky whose catalog consists of distinctive, impressionist style beats with an homage to hip hop. “Why’d You,” from Herring’s latest EP released this fall, is a pounding, acid-trip of an electronic piece with textured twists and a seemingly possessed looped vocal. In other words, hypnotizing AF so stream below.

Last but not least we have LOYAL, a new six-piece from the UK who resurrected from a shared love of disco, Kate Bush and Kubrick. They just released their second single, “House For You” and it’s an evocative electronic gem. Stereogum said it’s akin to “a Rhye piano ballad infused with a subtle four-on-the-floor heartbeat.” Swoon.
