Charlie Charlie - Save Us feat. Mapei
From an album of dreamy summer Pop Save Us (featuring Mapei) is my highlight. The band is Charlie Charlie, a new side project from Bella Boo and Chords and the album is called Little Things. Like a gentle summer breeze, it won't fail to warm and uplift the tired and weary. Thank me later.
박혜진 Park Hye Jin - Y DONT U (feat. Clams Casino & Take A Daytrip)
Y DON’T U is tasteful catchy Pop from 박혜진 Park Hye Jin who teams up with Clams Casino (A$AP Rocky, Mac Miller, FKA Twigs) and NYC duo Take A Daytrip (Travis Scott & Kid Cudi, Lil Nas X). Out on Ninja Tune.
Polo & Pan - Anu Kuni
High quality music from the Parisian Pop duo with Anu Kuni, hopefully the first track lifted from a forthcoming album.

Sufjan Stevens - America
Closing track from Stevens' new album The Ascension is the powerful statement: America.
Il Quadro di Troisi - Raggio verde
As Il Quadro di Troisi, Andrea Noce (Eva Geist) and Donato Scaramuzzi (Donato Dozzy) have teamed up to make a delightful electronic Pop album, with hints of Suzanne Vega and Carla dal Forno. It's challenging to pick a highlight from the self-titled album, as all nine tracks are simply superb, but Raggio verde has a certain eighties bent, which appeals to a man of my age.Noted, 29 Oct 2020, 08:02
Two Tribes - Cruel Sensuality
Cruel Sensuality: rousing Electronic Pop from London-based trio Two Tribes.
Milo Korbenski - Afterlove
HAAi - Head Above The Parakeets
Fusing an electronic Pop sensibility with madcap drums and treated vocals, the hazy vibe that emerges is like a drug-induced state. Put Your Head Above The Parakeets is the lead track from HAAi’s forthcoming four-track EP, out on 12” and digitally on 11 September 2020.
