Just in Australia recently to play Splendour in the Grass, American producer and instrumentalist Jeremy Malvin, aka Chrome Sparks, has gifted the country (and the world really) a new track, 'Losing U' to mark his time here. He's obvioulsy made quite an impression as the track has already garnered 80,000 odd plays on Soundcloud. We've featured Chrome Sparks a number of times over the last couple of years on Indie30, the latest being his excellent work with Steffaloo on last years Top 100 track, 'Eyes For You'. Check out 'Losing U' below.

Recently Silverlake based Los Angeles producer Distant Cousin released his debut self titled EP, a promising and quite diverse four track wonder of gaze driven synths, beats and samples mixed in with doses of live instrumentation. The societal awareness and musical intellect is immediately felt. Rather than me bang on any further, check out the pulse for yourself below in the form of opening track 'Together Tonight'. and listen the whole EP here.
Four debuts this week led off by the sparkling new single, 'Fiona Coyne' from producer Ryan DeRobertis, aka Saint Pepsi. That's in at 19 and available on 7" vinyl here. Ezra Koenig of Vampire Weekend among many other have lent their pipes to the forthcoming record, Wonder Where We Land, from London producer SBTRKT. He features on the lead single which enters at 24, the bass heavy jungle cum jazz inspired, 'New Dorp. New York'.
The new album, For The Recently Found Innocent, from White Fence, the project of Californian artist Tim Presley is out this week and to celebrate his move into the studio, the ever building first single, 'Like That' debuts at 25. It's taken us a while to get to this one but the new single from Gothenburg Balaeric inspired duo Sameblod has finally taken hold. The tropicalia inspired 'Suddenly' enters at 26 and we've got a feeling it won't stop there.
The new chart in full detail is available here while all 30 tracks are streaming in our Top 30 player.

Florida electronic outfit Millionyoung will unveil their latest release at the end of this month in the form of an EP, Materia. The brainchild of Mike Diaz has been ultra busy since the the project first surfaced in 2011 with the debut album Replicants. Since then two more albums, Amanecer and Variable have been forthcoming continuing the laid back yet funky chilled out vibe. Indie30 heavily featured two of Millionyoung's early tracks, the title track from Replicants and Amanecer's, 'Desperate Measures' across 2010 and 2011 and is more than happy to get back on the bandwagon after a fair hiatus. Check out the first single from the slick and über smooth five tracker, 'Tell Me' and look out for second 'Fade Away' in the Top 30 tomorrow. Materia is out on Old Flame Records July 29. Pre-order here.
London based French vocalist and mutli-instrumentalist Laetitia Sadier, of Stereolab fame, is set to release her third solo album, Something Shines in September.

Check it out for yourself below. Something Shines is out on September 23 through Chicago label Drag City.

San Francisco and now Los Angeles based quartet Melted Toys are finally set to release their three years in the making debut EP next week, a twelve track dose of understated languid pop packed full of relaxed and unhurried melodies, fragile and dreamy vocal stylings and a metronome beat that keep things on the straight and narrow. That things seem unhurried is how these guys roll as some of these tracks have been gestating for quite some time while the album was written and re-written after frontman Steven Harkins journeyed to Taipei, Beijing and Tokyo for inspiration. One has being the rounds for three years, the timeless 'Come On' . Check out one of the more newer tracks, 'Blush' and look out for 'Observations' replete with Monika Mogi directed video when our Top 30 chart returns Wednesday. We've included 'Come On' as well for the unfamiliar. The self titled album is out on vinyl and digitally through Underwater Peoples while French label Altier Ciseaux have 50 copies of it on limited edition cassette.
