Foxes In Fiction – Shadow’s Song

By Will Oliver, July 19th 2014

Foxes In Fiction

Foxes In Fiction is the project of Toronto-native Warren Hildebrand. He’s gearing up for the release of his sophomore Ontario Gothic, which will be released via his own label Orchid Tapes on September 23.

In 2011, Hildebrand started work on the album in his Toronto apartment, writing and recording and album looking back on the past five years living in Toronto. The theme of loss played a crucial role in the album, with the passing of his brother Drew in 2008.

Owen Pallet contributes string arrangements throughout the new album, such as on the grand and sweeping gem that is the album’s first single, “Shadow’s Song.” It’s a mesmerizing song that is dreamy and meloncholic in all the right ways. Pallet’s contributions have a huge impact on the song, which wouldn’t feel the same without them.

Enjoy it below.

Zola Jesus – Dangerous Days

Zola Jesus - Dangerous Days

Zola Jesus will release her new album Dangerous Days on October 7 via Mute.

She’s shared the album’s first single “Dangerous Days” and it’s awesome. The vocals are as uplifting and powerful as ever, with a type of delivering that would fit comfortably tucked in a M83 track. It’s a winner.

[new]: Grimes – Go

By Will Oliver, July 10th 2014


Grimes has come a long way since the release of her 2012 breakthrough album, Visions. She is now a part of Jay Z’s Roc Nation management company and writing songs for big shots such as Rihanna.

In fact, her recently released song “Go” was actually written for Rihanna, but got turned down. So she and her collaborator Blood Diamonds ended up just recording it and releasing it as one of her own songs. It may or may not be included on her eventual new album.

With that said, it’s not all that surprising that the song has a poppier nature to it. There’s still some Grimes touches to be found, but this on the whole is a much different (and bigger) feel. Here’s how Grimes described it upon its release:

It’s our summer jam so we figured we should put it out cuz I am very bored of waiting to finish my album b4 releasing new music haha.

Jamie xx – All Under One Roof Raving

By Will Oliver, July 10th 2014

Jamie XX - Performance

Earlier in the year Jamie xx released a new 7″ single that featured two new song: “Girl” and “Sleep Sound.” Those will be included on his eventual debut album, which is soon on the way.

The follow-up to those is a track called “All Under One Roof Raving.” Jamie made the track last year while on tour with The XX. Featuring vocal samples and his now-trademark steel drums, it’s apparently a “homage to the U.K. rave scene.”

Stream “All Under One Roof Raving” below.

Wooderson Slater – The Lake

By Will Oliver, June 29th 2014

Woodson Slater

I received an email from a new artist named Wooderson Slater with not much information aside from their relevant links (Facebook | Twitter | Soundcloud – where their location is listed as “Nowhere, Somewhere”) and their debut song “The Lake.”

Fans of Youth Lagoon should look no further, Wooderson Slater will be your new favorite artist.

“The Lake” starts with atmospheric keys and soon warm vocals come in as the song takes a dreamy turn. Imagine a hazy world where anything is possible. You can do that, or you can let your mind fully slip into the world of “The Lake.” It sweeps you up and inspires you at the same time. It’s one of the best songs that you’ll find floating around there – and you probably have no idea its out there. I’m here to change that.

Wooderson Slater is definitely one to watch. Keep an eye on this page for new music, but in the meantime, stream “The Lake” below, and head to his soundcloud page to grab yourself a free mp3 download.

The Gaslight Anthem - Portrait

The Gaslight Anthem will return with a new album titled Get Hurt, that will be released on August 19 via Island Records.

The album (their fifth) was recorded at Blackbird Studios in Nashville, Tennessee, with producer Mike Crossey. The album marks a new direction for the band, hitting influences such as folk, punk, and Americana. It’s an album described as heavier, yet still intimate. Sounds good to me.

The band have given us a taste of the album with first single “Rollin’ and Tumblin.” It sort of goes against the “new direction” that the band hinted at, as it’s a very by the numbers Gaslight Anthem track, with those familiar Brian Fallon vocals and the big steady New Jersey-minded rock ‘n’ roll licks. It hasn’t completely captured me the way that some of their others singles have, but it certainly just the job well enough.

Catch it posted below.

White Reaper – Half Bad

By Will Oliver, June 25th 2014

White Reaper

White Reaper are a trio that come from Louisville, Kentucky, and are ready to take your eardrums with them.

Yesterday the trio released their self-titled debut EP on Polyvinyl Records, and it’s killer good. If you need proof, look no further than the hard-hitting “Half Bad” which piles on synths and pop-hooks on top of its full-out garage rock arsenal. It’s the type of track that deserves to be heard at full volume live.

Check it out below and head to Polyvinyl to stream the EP and then pick up a copy for yourself. Read the rest of this entry »

Phoenix at Governors Ball 2014

By Will Oliver, June 11th 2014


I’ve had my fair share of Phoenix of late. Their Governors Ball set over the weekend was the fourth time I saw them in the past year; though I’m not complaining at all. Truthfully I went into their set not all that excited, and yet, those glorious French bastards wheeled me in again and reminded me why I love them so much.

Morrissey - World Peace Is None Of Your Business

is set to release his new album World Peace Is None of Your Business on June 15 via Harvest/Capitol. So far he’s already let us hear two singles from the album “Instanbul” & the title track, “World Peace is None of Your Business.”

Now he’s let go of a third track, called “Earth Is The Loneliest Planet. It has a upbeat nature to it, to go over some fairly familar vocals from Morrissey. WWhen you’re Morrissey, I’m sure you mean it when you say “Earth Is the Loneliest Planet.”

Stream the track below. I’ve also shared the spoken word video of the video, which features fellow PETA member Pamela Anderson.
