There have been some rumours about it recently, but apparently it’s been confirmed: Beach House will release a new album in 2012. It will be titled Bloom and counts 10 tracks - expectations are obviously very high since their magical Teen Dream. Bloom is out on May 15 via Sub Pop, you can find the tracklist below. Suggest you start building a stock of tissues already.
04 Other People
05 The Hours
07 New Year
09 On the Sea
Repeater = Songs that go on repeat. At least for a little while.
The repeater this time?
Decide by Caveman. This was on constant play this summer and I have recently rediscovered it due to the fact that these guys will be at SXSW….but I won’t be there yet! Boooo….
PLAY! LISTEN! REPEAT!
‘cause i would like to be one
Decide on me
You try, you’ll see
Cadence Weapon, who turns 26 today, wishes that it was still 1988. So much so that the Edmonton native has recorded a new jam dedicated to the seminal year for hip-hop, the aptly titled “88.” New Cadence Weaponmusic is, of course, reason enough to be excited considering he was relatively quiet last year. But we’re particularly hype to see that none other than Montreal’s Grimes produced the track. Well, kind of. Cadence Weapon apparently sampled “Eight,” off her new Visions release, to create the grimy (sorry), thick backdrop for his personal ode to ‘88. You can stream and download it below. [Spinner]
So, today Grimes took over the Gorilla VS. Bear site and is posting awesome, crazy stuff!
1. Grimes new album Visions is out today! Available for purchase here.
2. Awesome video recommendation:
This is some Lynchian horror anxiety music by the coolest person I have ever met, and the guy who lays out all my album artwork; Jasper Baydala. (Grimes)
Rise and shine and take a listen here!
Taken from the new Shlohmo EP Vacation out on Friends of Friends.
I first heard Peaking Lights last spring when an unofficial video for the song Tiger Eyes was posted on a few bloggy blogs. The song is great, but the song WITH the video is what made it stick. Awesome.
Created with footage from the 1985 Italian film Arrapaho. Obviously, there are some BIG questions that can be asked about representation here, but I was more focused on the eery experience of the footage with this soundtrack. Very strange indeed. I’m very curious about this film….
Pour ce soir…. Harsh Realm by Widowspeak.
Maybe it’s the seventeen hours of ‘work’ or the two flights I took over those hours, but this little diddy seemed appropriate to feature today.
There’s an ache to “Harsh Realm” that’s all their own, the central vocal line (“I always think about you”) bearing a downplayed creepiness that suggests Hamilton knows a thing or two about the ill effects of obsessive love.Nick Neyland
I dig their self titled album, especially those tracks that combine that 1950s surf guitar feel with that 1990s shoegaze moodiness. Like this one!
Here’s the deets on the SXSW show. Bon soir mes amis.
countdown. 2. SXSW.
In 28 sleeps we will be in Austin enjoying sun, BBQ and, of course, a smorgasbord of awesome music. Over the next 28 days I will be posting a lil’ somethin’ somethin’ on exciting bands to watch! hoorah!
today……………..let’s start with what I am most looking forward to. You can probably guess……….
A little bit on Grimes from Arbutus Records:
A phantasmic state for the deep listener, sourcing the long forgotten spells running alongside humans for centuries and forcing them through a hyper-futuristic filter. Compositional and vocal delivery are coloured with an emotional trauma. Despite a generally upbeat demeanour, an urgency permeates the music. Calling us between our history and the future it uses the pleasure of minimal rhythms and dance to entice, but beyond its rich, software-sculpted cohesiveness, and vocal energy, runs a very real and odd world.
This just made this morning so much better. Dancing in my chair.
Turn it up!
Thanks Gorilla vs. Bear!
