Cappa
Cappa
CAPPA — born Carla Cappa just 23 years ago — has already paid her pop music dues. In 2009, she dropped her first album, You Never Got Me, which featured the prize-winning single "I'm Not." Two years ago, she released "My Heart is Beating Again," a springy electronic sizzler, and later that year sang backup for Passion Pit during the band's live VEVO sessions. Now the singer is back as CAPPA, marking a new direction in her career with that project's debut single, "Hush."

"I want people to feel like they can escape everyday life," Cappa said of the track in a statement. "I think that's what we're all looking for when we're listening to music, and I hope that listeners can do that with mine." Certainly "Hush" is a transportive smash, with fluffy Swedepop vocals ("If you want me / There's no maybe," she howls on the pre-chorus), a thrashing drum machine, and the loveliest high-pitched cooing this side of Grimes' Visions. Stream CAPPA's new one below and look for her EP to impact later this spring.

Manrelic
Manrelic
A "Manrelic" consists of a saint's physical remains or belongings preserved for purposes of veneration as a tangible memorial. In this way, a Manrelic honors its predecessors.

Manrelic is Jared Park, a singer, Songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer, model and actor.

This Manrelic differs in that Jared seeks to carve his own path. It draws influence from a variety of places, musical and non-musical. There are nods to the larger-than-life characters throughout this past half-century. The synth work fluctuates between dreamy and anxiety-inducing. The drums and percussion pump, bump, and grind with quirkiness. The guitars, at times, cascade around you and then jump out at you like a snarling savage. The bass provides the ground-shaking low-end to fill the music out.

Manrelic wants you to hear something familiar, responsive to its context, but new. Whatever the case, just FEEL something.
The Trinity Schill Kill
The Trinity Schill Kill
The top is down on your convertible and it’s well past 1am but the lights still burn the empty streets of this neo-metropolis. You’re driving 70 and every signal goes from yellow to red just as you pass beneath. They will be already dancing when you arrive. You’re ready to dance. The radio in your car turns itself on…

It’s disco bass chopped into tidy, white lines on a mirror of glacial synth washes, surrounded by fragments of crunchy drum machines, sexy-time guitars and 8-bit urgency. The vocals are persuasive - compelling you to say goodbye, move on, come back, love, surrender and dance. None of that is the problem. The problem is you’re certain someone would have told you if Prince made an album with Daft Punk and you’re pretty sure you haven’t entered a parallel universe where Michael Jackson was the singer of Suicide. (Wait… Who turned on the radio?) So, the problem is: who could have made this dirty and majestic music? And, ultimately, it isn’t a problem at all. It’s The Trinity Schill Kill.
