Weekly Playlist #2: Night Fruit, Color Channel, Qualms, and Case & Point

Back from their West Coast tour, Cambridge dream-pop trio NIGHT FRUIT are back in action with “Human Touch,” an icy, detached shimmer of a single that’s the first taste off their upcoming 2013 full-length, which our fair city will get a preview of during their coming show Saturday night at O'Brien's in Allston on a bill with Battle House, 3d Cosby, and Vending Machetes. Before the Fruit left for tour, we premiered the video for "Human Touch"...

Also on Saturday and just up Harvard Avenue, live dance-party machine COLOR CHANNEL will get the night started at Brighton Music Hall on an electro-licious bill featuring Casey Desmond and this week's What's F'n Next artist, Sweden's Niki & the Dove. Not to be outdone, Color Channel have thrown down a tumbling groove-starter in debut single "Get To Know The Person Next To You," perfect for doing a bit of street strutting on a Saturday night...

Easton electronic duo QUALMS features the suburb-pop exploits of Justin Mantell and Darin Thompson, two gentlemen who could also be seen around town in Orca Orca’s live band -- Orca Orca play with Tennis and Wild Belle a week from tonight at T.T.

After blowing up the internet with their remixes of Icona Pop, Radiohead, and Miike Snow, Boston electro production duo CASE & POINT close us out by taking the xx’s moody hush-rock and rebooting it into a big-room dance-floor banger. We posted it when it debuted a few weeks ago, and just crossed the 20,000-stream mark on their Soundcloud after one a few weeks. Hit the dance floor hard.
