YESTERDAY SAW THE return of one of my personal favorites.

Los Angeles’ Inc. took to their website and unveiled their latest single, “The Place“, forthcoming on their soon-to-be detailed debut LP due out in 2013 on 4AD. The group, led by brothers Andrew and Daniel Aged, had been laying low the past year working on this release, and it’s nice to hear the fruits of their labor.

The Place” – sensual, dark, romantic, and subtle, it embodies Inc.’s vibe and points to exciting new tunes ahead. If you’re digging it, you can download the mp3 by joining their mailing list from the website. Will definitely have more details on the LP once it’s available. Till then, enjoy!

TWO OUTTA THREE now floating through the interwebs, poster boys Andrew and Daniel Aged of Inc. releasing a new track, “Millionairess”, off their forthcoming 4AD EP, 3, set to drop funk b*mbs July 26th.

Sparkling synth and divine keys refract diamond glimmers on “Millionairess”‘s silver platter, the debonair Aged brothers keeping the vibe sexy and chic as they have on “Swear” and other cuts.  Slinking upright bass blurs and electric whispers add an opaque mystery of foggy fawning, infatuation blinded by a lady bankroller’s glare.

Seductive, glamorous and full of attitude, Inc. always comes through strutting with solid gold jams rich in funkiness.  “Millionairess” is settin 3 up to be a tasty summer treat.

ONLY A WEEK removed from the release of their collaboration with Francis and the Lights, Inc. is back with a new single, “Swear”, from their upcoming EP, 3, off 4AD July 25th.

You can cop “Swear” at the crew’s website.

“Swear” demonstrates a more mature side of the crew, ditching the crackly and wonky lo-fi sound of their “Fountains/Friend of the Night” split in exchange for a stripped-down, cleaner sound.

The track glides with a steady and consistent downtempo flow heavy on the low end.  Subtle yet booming bass from Daniel Aged gives the track its footing while a stained glass organ overlays a vivid melody.  Andrew Aged’s whispery vocals leaves a frothy coat of Prince-like intimacy and sass brimming above the beat, wooing one deeper into a trance.

From Teen Inc. to Inc., jazner is always looking out for his boyz and hopes you have followed this crew’s development over the past year.  Look out for 3 to set the mood for a sexy summer of mellow funk from the Aged Bros. and company.

WIND DOWN FROM the grind and cozy up with a cuddler for the honeycomb cut “Romance Layers” off Gang Gang Dance’s latest album, Eye Contact, off 4AD.

Mimicking the bedazzled bug lounging on the cover’s flower, a chirruping synth shines through the intro of “Romance Layers”, squeaking a midnight mating call of percolating passion to all those grooving on the late night play time tilt.  A downtempo constant rhythm develops, with a subtle funky bass line clanging through the thickets ready to pounce with some sick licks.  Vocalist Liz Bougatsos tiptoes the line between Kate Bush and Little Dragon’s Yukimi Nagano, seducing you to enter Gang Gang Dance’s bizarre bazaar of abstract forms and swirling timbre bridging East and West through sonic undulations.

Listen to “Romantic Layers”, as well as the rest of Eye Contact, here.
