Simian Mobile Disco – Tangents

Simian Mobile Disco - Tangents

Simian Mobile Disco will release new album Whorl on September 9 via Anti- Records. As we previously reported, the album was recorded live in California desert, with a modular synth and a sequencer each.

The first taste of the album came via “Tangents” a dark moody instrumental that shifts gears many time through its four-minute runtime, running through various atmospheres and emotions. If the rest of the Whorl can tap into this same place, we are in for a treat.


She Keeps Bees

She Keeps Bees is the Brooklyn-based duo comprised of Jessica Larrabee + Andy LaPlant. They will release their fourth album Eight Houses on September 16 via Future Gods.

First single “Is What It Is” features the hot rising star, and fellow Brooklyn native, Sharon Van Etten on vocals who adds her always signature touch to the haunting atmosphere that the song is drenched in. But it’s the combined power of her and Larrabee that provide the powerful emotional punch in the gut that will leave you wanting more.

Ballet School – Cherish

By Will Oliver, August 20th 2014

Ballet School

I’m a sucker for 80s rock, its often very cheesy, but that somehow is a part of its lovable charm. These days a lot of bands are drawing from 80s synth-pop, including Berlin-based trio Ballet School. On September 9 they will release their new album The Dew Lasts An Hour via Bella Union.

First single “Cherish” has shimmering synths and powerful percussion, but its built on the showstopping vocals of Rosie Blair. These guys sound polished, and know how to pack on layers and layers of hooks. “Cherish” is a larger than life pop song, the stuff that would be blasting on the radio, if we were only so lucky.

Hiss Golden Messenger

On September 9 M.C. Taylor, who you may known better as Hiss Golden Messenger, will release his new album Lateness Of Dancers on Merge Records (his first release on the label).

The album’s first single “Saturday’s Song” is a charming piece of folk-based rock, with a light dreamy feel to it in a Jeff Tweedy/Wilco sort of fashion. It’s the sort of song perfect for a long drive on the open road. Enjoy it below.

The Rural Alberta Advantage – Terrified

The Rural Alberta Advantage

The Rural Alberta Advantage will return with new album Mended With Gold on Paper Bag Records come September 30.

All their signature pieces come together to form something hard hitting and emotional on first single “Terrified.” The raw vocals of Nils Edenloff, the persistant percussion of incredible drummer Paul Banwatt, and the synth/vocal work of Amy Cole all add up to one impressive whole. They summon up a dreamy atmospheric world that you wan’t to become totally immersed in.

Three minutes simply isn’t enough.

Bob Moses – Grace

By Will Oliver, August 20th 2014

Bob Moses

Earlier this year Vancouver the duo of Tom Howie and Jimmy Vallance, who go by the moniker Bob Moses, released a fantastic single called “Grace” that I want to bring your attention to this instant.

It’s actually the b-side to the 7″ single of “I Ain’t Gonna Be The First To Cry”, which Domino Records put out. While the a-side is a tune itself, it’s the b-side “Grace” that caught my attention.

Its a house tune that takes its time to get where its going at seven minutes, but when it hits that groove, watch out. A blippy electronic pattern sets the tone, but its the calming vocals of Tom Howie that bring it all home over a effortless vocal hook. This is a straight up smooth jam.

Stream “Grace” below.

GOAT – Hide From The Sun

Swedish band GOAT bring 60s tripped out desert vibes on their track “Hide From The Sun.” Elements of psych-rock drip from its core, sounding like a mix of Tame Impala and Temples. It’s one hell of a sonic journey, of space and time. It isn’t a surprise when you learn that they wear masks during their live show, letting their appearance becoming a part of their live experience.

“Hide From The Sun” is included on their new album Commune that will be released on September 23 via Sub Pop. Stream it below. Read the rest of this entry »

FaltyDL – Some Jazz Shit

By Will Oliver, August 20th 2014


Earlier this month producer/DJ FaltyDL released a new album called In The Wild.

I want to bring your attention to a lovely tune off of the record called “Some Jazz Shit.” In it, FaltyDL blends all kinds of genres and ideas into one beautiful trance-like song that takes your mind on a colorful exploration that transports you to various moods and memories. It’s quite amazing. That title alone should be enough to tell you that this is a must hear sort of song.

Enjoy it below.

LVL UP – I Feel Ok

By Will Oliver, August 20th 2014


LVL UP hail from New York, and have me absolutely hooked to their catchy number “I Feel Ok.” Clean cut guitars lead the charge through a charming song that finds plenty of ways to please your ears during its brisk two-and-a-half-minute run-time.

The days of summer are fading, but will live on in this song. It’s off their sophomore album Hoodwink’d, which will be released on Double Double Whammy/Exploding In Sound on September 23.

Enjoy “I Feel Ok” below.
