Flume has once again teamed up with Kucka for a new bonus track called ‘Hyperreal’. The new track was to be an exclusive addition to the vinyl release of Skin Companion EP II, but Flume decided to make it available in digital form as well.
It’s a thumping, glitchy club track packed with bass and off kilter syncopation. Flume has woven explosions, claps, distortion and kick drums together with Kucka’s soprano to create an unnerving, deep dark beast.
Lovers of soulful psych-pop rejoice! Three years after the release of ‘Lacuna,’ South Londoners Childhood are back and are releasing their new album ‘Universal High’ on 21st July via Marathon Artists!
They’ve also lifted the lid on ‘Californian Light,’ a sparkling, pretty vintage number that’s perfect for the summer.
Phoenix are gearing up to release their new album Ti Amo this summer and today you can hear its opener and first single ‘J-Boy’.
The band opened up about the album in a recent New York Times profile, describing a long recording process in Paris during extremely fraught political times. Despite that, they described Ti Amo as “incredibly colorful” and there isn’t a better way to describe this first taste.
At least judging by ‘J-Boy’, the French rockers seem to be inching further away from their previous crunchy, dueling guitar-driven sound and more towards the synth-driven power pop they explored on Bankrupt!.
British rock band Royal Blood have announced a new album How Did We Get So Dark? due out June 16, 2017, via Warner Bros. Records. In support of this, the duo have shared the album’s lead single “Lights Out” with an accompanied music video. They’ve also announced a slew of United States tour dates, kicking off June 2 at the Paradise Rock Club in Boston.
Welsh multi-instrumentlist Novo Amor is sharing beautiful new cut “Carry You”, the first track from new EP Bathing Beach. Novo Amor – aka Ali Lacey – describes the song as “an expression of nostalgia, a wistful nod to to a certain period of time.” The song is rich and full, and despite a wealth of layers building towards the heavens, there’s a bold sense of freedom.
Alt-rock icons The Afghan Whigs have announced a new full-length album called In Spades. Due out May 5th via Sub Pop, the 12-track LP follows the band’s 2014 comeback effort, Do to the Beast, which was their first since 1998.
Bandleader Greg Dulli wrote and produced In Spades himself, and inoperable cancer be damned, guitarist Dave Rosser is also a featured contributor. Recording sessions took place in New Orleans, Los Angeles, Memphis, and Joshua Tree.
