MP3: "Verions" - http://soundcloud.com/forcefieldpr/martin-eden-verions
Martin Eden (Matthew Cooper of Eluvium) released his debut album, Dedicate Function, with Lefse Records on October 9th. He shares his first track, "Verions" here. Cooper started making music under the name Eluvium in 2003, and since then we have never known what to expect from each release: minimal ambiance solo piano, modern classical, static noise, stately and sonorous pop.

MP3: "The Sound" - http://soundcloud.com/life-or-death-pr/maria-minerva-the-sound
With the release of her new LP, Will Happiness Find Me?, Maria Minerva has released new single "Fire" featuring rapper Chase Royal. Following the release of Will Happiness Find Me?, the Estonian songstress will be launching her first ever US tour.
MP3: "The Fall" (Fort Romeau Remix) - http://soundcloud.com/slumberland-records/frankie-rose-the-fall-fort/
Frankie Rose floated free from her musical history when her second album Interstellar was released in February to universal acclaim. On it, Frankie took the lessons learned with her debut album - like reverb as the holy route to pop-grandeur, scaling a wall of teenage tears - and transferred those skills into a brave new world mapped out by ten new songs.
MP3: "Lucky Numbers" - http://soundcloud.com/forcefieldpr/generationals-lucky-numbers/
Consider this Generationals' New Orleans record. But it's not really a "New Orleans" record. Three songs from this process will be featured on their forthcoming Lucky Numbers EP that will be out this Fall. The more synth-heavy arrangements will strike some as almost antithetical to what New Orleans music traditionally is.
