It’s been a minute since I last heard a new track from Wild Nothing. but this band doesn’t disappoint, although it is quite different from their older stuff… most likely because Jack Tatum finally recorded in an actual studio. Andrea Estella from Twin Sister accompanies him on vocals on this single which is pretty cool.
so into this psych-rock band from San Francisco. ghostly, raw, sexy… kinda sounds like you need to be smoking a cigg and drinking whiskey. Their second album Better Luck Next Life will be out February 7… look into this. so good.
Hands down one of my favorite tracks I’ve heard from Brighton producer Will Phillips who’s done some rad remixes under the name Little Loud. “Placid Acid” is a perfect instrumental to jam to. Tourist’s debut EP comes out March 12th via Make Mine… excited to see what else Will has up his sleeve.
Jesse Cohen and Eric Emm make up the Brooklyn based duo Tanlines. “Brothers” their new single from the forthcoming new album Mixed Emotions is better polished and more distinct than ever before. Can’t wait to hear the rest of the album on March 20.
oh mmmmmmmmmmm gee. serious jam right here. been waiting to see when this Swedish electro trio was going to come up with something new. and oh my this is a good one…such an contagious tune, complexly beautiful.
Stuart Howard known as Lapalux is straight up killin it. “Gutter Glitter” has intricate texture and rich layers that makes such an elegant piece. Flylo knows how to keep them well. When You’re Gone, Lapalux’s new EP will be out February 7 on Brainfeeder label.
I’ve been wondering when this Brooklyn band was going to pop up again. Their previous album Beast, Rest, Forth, Mouth was on constant repeat back in 2009. “The Reflection of You” taken from their newest album, is filled with hazy vocals, dense in synth and pure awesomeness. I Love You, It’s Cool is due to be released on April 3 through Dead Oceans / Hometapes.
School of Seven Bells is known for their dream-like and hallucinogenic melodies and “Lafaye” will send you into a blissful daze of layering distractions. Their third LP Ghostory is due to be released on February 28 via Vagrant.
Nicolas Jaar - And I Say (Ft. Scout Larue and Will Epstein)
Nicolas Jaar, one of my favorite upcoming artists, came out with a new track with vocals from Scout LaRue as in Bruce Willis and Demi Moore’s daughter. yup. radical. Jaar has a very unique minimalist style…simple yet complex in theory. The saxophone compliments the snaring bass and on top of the vocals… intoxicating.
There is something about this song that even if you’re having a bad day, it seems to take your mind off everything with it’s dreamy tune and animated flow. the best pick me up song I’ve found in a while. This London synth-pop band’s new EP Apparitions will be released on February 7.
Chairs Missing is back with a new single that was released October 28, 2011 from To the Hills 7”. One of my favorite psych-pop bands from San Diego. I’ve seen them more than a dozen times, and they’re extremely cool guys that I still keep in touch with. Keep these guys on your radar.
“Genesis,” a track off of Claire Boucher’s upcoming album Visions is intoxicating. Climbing piano loops, Claire’s alluring voice gliding through the fluttering melody. Can it please be February 21 already so I can get the whole album… really excited for this one.
By far my favorite song on Year of Hibernation. Still can’t believe I missed this guy while he was in San Diego. like an idiot. And can’t believe this guy is 22 years old, blowing up right now. Year of Hibernation was released on September 27 via Fat Possum. I will see him live soon, count on it.
