Here’s one more sun-kissed entry before we close out another summer: Lemonade‘s blissful, dream-wavy “Minus Tide,” the title track of their eternally breezy/very good new record that’s out September 9 on Cascine, dropping just in time to be included on all of your long weekend beach trip playlists.

listen: Lewis – “Heartbreak” + “It’s A Frail Thing”

LEWIS

Yet another record has surfaced from the enigmatic/shapeshifting Lewis, who apparently was still recording nearly 20 years after L’Amour and Romantic Times, this time assuming the name Randy Duke. Regardless of the alias, the two tracks that have been pulled from his early 00s LP bear the same timeless, heart-rending soulfulness that’s unmistakably Lewis (aka Randall Wulff), no matter the decade. Sadly, don’t expect to see Love Ain’t No Mystery pressed on wax anytime soon, but you can grab a shady-looking digital copy through Fiasco Bros.’ website here. [via]

Mr. Twin Sister – “Blush”

Here’s another blissfully smooth jam from the Long Island outfit formally known as Twin Sister: “Blush” comes from Mr. Twin Sister‘s forthcoming self-titled LP, and on its face couldn’t be more different than the previous dark electro cut, but speaks with a familiar sense of idiosyncratic longing that, on some level, feels right at home among the band’s catalog. Mr. Twin Sister is out September 23 on Infinite Best.
