A chilling new single from Silver Arm with the track “Steady Like A Vein.” On this track, the band’s post-punk leanings head into dark territory with wailing guitars, shouted vocals, and some grimy baselines. Enjoy!
A captivating live rendition of “Toilet Brushes,” which is one of many cuts off the latest album from minimalist composer Nils Frahm, Spaces. The LP is out now on Erased Tapes. Enjoy!
Method Man teams up with the A$AP Mob’s A$AP Nast for a new single titled “Trillmatic,” which has a hard-hitting, vintage boom bap beat that nostalgic hip hop listeners will dig on. While I’m not too crazy about the “funky style” and “funky swag” oozing out of this single, this song does give me hope the A$AP Mob may have more to offer than Rocky and Ferg. Enjoy!
Electronic music producer Jon Hopkins drops some visuals for the song “Collider,” which is one of the many great tracks from his latest full-length, Immunity, which you can catch a review for below.
The story here seems to follow one girl reliving a nightmarish night at the club that involves some epileptic fits–I’m assuming they’re drug-related–and one of the most aggressive make out sessions I’ve seen in a while. The last third actually becomes slightly uncomfortable to watch as our female protagonist struggles against the grip of some fellow clubgoer who looks like he’s trying to help her–uh, I think.
New Jersey MC GDP and Philly electronic music producer Space Jesus have joined forces under the name #$ (Hash Money). The Smokers Cough signees already have new single and video out under their new handle, titled “Right Now.” Check out the bassy EDM-rap goodness above!
Up-and-coming producer and recent Ninja Tune signee Lee Bannon drops another track and video in promotion of his forthcoming album, Alternate/endings. The LP is currently looking at a January 13th release date. Enjoy!
Icelandic electronic musician and contemporary classical music composer Jóhann Jóhannsson broke into the mainstream consciousness earlier this year with his breathtaking score for the acclaimed Hollywood film Prisoners. Now, he’s set to take his astounding score for last year’s Bill Morrison-directed documentary The Miners’ Hymns on the road for a handful of screenings, which you can find information about on his website. Jóhannsson will be constructing the music live with a number of brass ensembles, and judging from the above rehearsal video, it’s going to be fucking epic. Check it!
New York hip hop duo The Underachievers are at work on their debut studio album, set to be released sometime next year via Brainfeeder. In the meantime, check out this stylish, Wrung-produced set of visuals, shot in Paris, for Indigoism cut “Leopard Shepherd.”
And a gentle reminder that Indigoism was a pretty sweet tape:
Check out MGMT’s new video for the song “Alien Days;” it’s a delightful, farm-set romp! Our main characters, a young rural couple, appear to be in a constant state of elation – frolicking, swimming, spinning in gyroscopes, experiencing childbirth…Erm, actually, that last one proves to be not so much fun. But there’s also a couple of dancing aliens, so overall, the video’s a joy. Check it out above!
