Steven A. Clark – Can’t Have


Described as a Josey Wales outlaw-type raised on N.E.R.D and Kanye‘s 808s & Heartbreak, Steven A. Clark is a new artist based out of Miami beginning to make a name for himself. Having been compared to Frank Ocean and Twin Shadow, he’s poised for big things with the release of his debut album, The Lonely Roller out this month via Secretly Canadian. Similar to the aforementioned artists, he’s taken R&B and added his own blend of cinematic pop and electronics. Listen to the soul-stirring track “Can’t Have,” with its strings-infused opening, ardent production and impassioned vocals below.

Clark will be appearing at CMJ in October, followed by a run of shows with Sinkane in November. Find the full schedule below, which includes a stop at DC’s Black Cat.

Cayucas – Moony Eyed Walrus


Seaside, surf-pop duo Cayucas dropped their sophomore LP Dancing at the Blue Lagoon via Secretly Canadian this week. Twin brothers Zach and Ben Yudin expanded their musical aesthetic on the album, imbuing their tropical and typically Californian sound with a more personal tone and overall riper quality. Stream the jangly and sun-washed tune “Moony Eyed Walrus” for a taste of the LP below. DC locals can catch Cayucas playing Rock & Roll Hotel August 3, with Hibou supporting.
