Washington D.C.-based electronic duo BENOIT & SERGIO are currently on the road to promote their brand new EP New Ships.  In his review of the EP Joshua Ferguson of XLR8R writes: “The EP’s title track, full of slinking guitar riffs, sunny keys, and blue-eyed soul, could be redubbed ‘New Yachts’ for its nod to yacht-rock originators Hall & Oates. It captures the sentiment more so than being an outright light-rock track, obviously, but there’s still a hint of ‘Private Eyes’ floating around in there.  Throbbing with thick bass tones and keeping time with ever-present hand clapping, ‘New Ships’ is a sleeper hit. Pooling BENOIT & SERGIO’s best qualities, it has all the makings of a rebellious pop tune, defying any of the scene’s tired formulas.”  You can read it in full by visiting And the team at DUMMY just unveiled this brand new snowflake-meets-blown glass-meets-psychedelic video for ARCA’s track “Manners”.  They first note how much they loved the group’s album entitled Stretch 2, before giving a thumbs up to ARCA’s brand new album UNO.  You can get all the links by visiting DUMMY.
