As mentioned, Kisses (Jesse Kivel of Princeton and Zinzi Edmundson) just released their second album, Kids in LA, via the Cascine label. Mining '80s synthpop sounds, the duo have a strong sense of songcraft and the record (produced by Saint Etienne's Pete Wiggs) makes for great light summer listening. You can stream the whole thing below.

Kivel also features on "Borderline" from the new Classixx album (they play LPR next month) and you can stream that track below too.

You can catch Kisses and a few of their labelmates (including Selebrities, Rush Midnight and Chad Valley) at the Cascine/New Town Radio Northside Festival Showcase on June 13 at Cameo. Tickets are still available.

If you can't make that show, Kisses will be back in NYC a month or so after to play Mercury Lounge on July 19. Tickets to that show go on on AmEx presale on Wednesday (5/22) at 10 AM with the regular on-sale happening Friday (5/24) at noon. Kisses have a few other East Coast dates as well which are listed below.

@1:27am HA! Just listening through their soundcloud and it's pretty amazing that that publicity photo is EXACTLY what their album sounds like, bland and boring and uninspired. It's indescribable... Song construction isn't horrible but worst lead vocalist ever... PASSING...
