It’s always been easy to swoon over Angel Olsen, and she’s made it even easier with this video for her new song, the pop-tinged, lovelorn “Forgiven/Forgotten.” The song is from her upcoming album Burn Your Fire For No Witness, and the video was directed by Zia Anger. The album is out February 18th via Jagjaguwar.
We’re excited to give you the first listen of a brand new song from Sides of Chaz, aka Chaz Bundick of Toro Y Moi. The track is called “Sweet Tea,” and will be released on a limited edition 7″ through South Carolina-based label Fork and Spoon Records. It’s a bit more experimental, the label calls it a “sweet ass weirdo pop jam” which I can’t deny at all.
Listen below and pre-order the 7-inch via Fork and Spoon before its release date on December 10th.
Chrome Sparks has been touring a lot this last year, and every time they close out their set, they do it with this infectious number that no one’s ever heard before. And every time, there isn’t a person in the venue who isn’t bobbing their head and grimacing their face. Well, now we know what this infamous track is: “Lookin At Me.” It’s the latest single released on Chrome Sparks’ new label Future Classic, and you can download it here.
Russian ambient producer x.y.r. just released a collection of beautifully serene sounds called Big Calm. It’s like a journey through oceans, the trees and the stars, all in just eight tracks. Grab the digital, spring for the limited-edition cassette from Singapore Sling Tapes, and stream album standout “message in a bottle” below.
Nashville experimental weirdo-pop artist Uncle Skeleton is back with his fourth album. Too Young, Too Old is full of poppier pop songs, more experimental experiments, and more profound ambient tracks. You can order the golden vinyl from Uncle Skeleton’s Bandcamp page and enjoy these eccentric wonders forever.
Philly producer Moon Bounce, aka Corey Regensburg, produces—in my opinion—some of the most original electronic music around right now. His obsessive attention to detail and propensity for original sounds (almost all his music uses no samples) puts him in a league of his own. We’re happy to give you a first listen to his brand new single, “Marvelous Beast.” The stuttering bass line that starts it off may have you checking your internet connection, at least until that pointed and echoing “hey” pricks you like a pin.
Moon Bounce is finishing up his next EP, Dress Rehearsal. And according to Corey the release will be “a more on the nose pop/r&b aesthetic filtered through electronics and experimentation.”
Head over to Moon Bounce’s Facebook page for the download of “Marvelous Beast.”
Kazimier is Brooklyn’s Bill Delelles, and apart from being the live drummer for Chrome Sparks, he just released his debut EP ?. The title track “?” is probably my favorite cut off the EP so far. It’s a slow moving experimental waltz, drifting in and out of bouts of droning ambience and beautiful violin melodies.
Listen &/or download the full EP via Kazimier’s Bandcamp page.
