Australian producer Chet Faker has enlisted emerging L.A. singer BANKS to record a re-touched version of 1998, a song that was originally featured on Chet Faker’s 2014 debut, Built On Glass. The collaboration just premiered on Zane Lowe‘s Beats 1 program on Apple Music, and with the addition of BANKS’ sultry vocals it has the potential to be one of the tracks of the summer. Dig in.
1998 (Feat. BANKS) is out now on iTunes.
Copenhagen-based post-punk quartet Communions have shared the stark, black-and-white visuals for latest single Forgot It’s A Dream. Directed by Nikolaj Møller, the track is the opening number on their newly-released Communions EP.
”The video is about the special time and years around being a teenager growing up and becoming an adult. Around the innocent years with the newly discovered sexual attraction and exploration. The longing eyes. As as a viewer we are part of a world where reality and fantasy blurs together. An undefined time warp stated around an athletic stadium where the interaction between different persons and thoughts floats together” – Nikolaj Møller.
Communions self-titled EP is available now on Tough Love.
Earlier this month, John Talabot‘s rework of Jamie xx and Romy’s Loud Places appeared on Tim Sweeney’s Beats In Space radio show at the tail end of Swedish house music DJ Axel Boman guest mix.

The new edit will appear as part of a forthcoming Loud Places 12″, due out via Young Turks this summer.
