Free Music! Kisses, Chrome Canyon, Earlimart, Hunx and His Punx, Prince Rama
Finally. After two years of touring the world and recording, Kisses have unveiled their latest single. "Funny Heartbeat," a track about love and high anxiety that calls attention to the end of Summer and a new chapter for Kisses. While putting the finishing touches on the duo's second LP, the group decided to release a song that sits between the disco sheen of The Heart of The Nightlife and the pulsing freestyle beats of their forthcoming LP.

Stones Throw is set to release Chrome Canyon's debut album, Elemental Themes on Oct. 9. The inaugural set is blessed with solid circuitry and an organic core: not only those analog synths, but live drums, bass, guitar and Theremin run through hand-built compressors, composed and arranged into a living, breathing whole.

Earlimart's System Preferences is a lush and lovely soundtrack for a sad, beautiful world. It's an album that touches on disillusionment with and acceptance of technology, complex relationships, and lost weekends. The Los Angeles-based duo of Aaron Espinoza and Ariana Murray retain tones and textures familiar to fans of the band's six previous albums of whispering and stomping indie rock, but they've grown as songwriters and producers.

Hunx and His Punx
Hunx and His Punx might be the first ever "girl group" fronted by a flamboyant gay male whose dream in life is to sound like a girl. They have created a unique new sound they refer to as "Young Oldies," a mixture of 50s teenage rock 'n' roll, 60s girl groups and bubblegum pop.

It's 2012, and Prince Rama has made the Top Ten Hits of the End of the World. Conceived as a pseudo-compilation album, the Brooklyn duo invented ten different pop bands that died during the apocalypse, channeling the ghosts of each one to perform the various songs. Spanning genres and stylistic eras from across the globe, Top Ten Hits explores pop music's relationship to memory, nostalgia, and the spirit world.
