Here are the latest New Music selections from the On The Record column in tomorrow’s edition of The Ticket. Please feel free to share New Music tips below.

Mozart’s Sister

From Montreal, Caila Thompson-Hannant was one of our favourite new finds at this year’s SXSW gathering. In the last few months, her smoky, idiosyncratic, arty dream-pop, as seen on tunes like “Don’t Leave It To Me”, has been attracting more fans to her side. One for those seeking more post-Grimes’ pop.

Haleek Maul

15 year old kid from Barbados making dark, deep, far-out hip-hop. Debut EP “Oxyconteen” features Maul cuts aided and abetted by producers The-Drum, Supreme Cuts and King Britt, with a mixtape ready to drop later this summer. If he was in Ireland, he’d probably be doing his Junior Cert at the moment.

Kitten

We’re digging new tune “Cut It Out” from the Chloe Chaidez-fronted Los Angeles band a lot this weather. Similar examples of spikey, kick-ass electronic pop can be expected on their forthcoming EP, with a debut album due to see the light of day in early 2013. Live show is also a rave, by all accounts
