Vinyl Williams – Space Age Utopia


Los Angeles-based psych rocker Vinyl Williams has shared a dreamy new song entitled Space Age Utopia. The single is the second to be lifted from his forthcoming new album, Into.

“Unlike the dramatic film scores of his grandfather (famed composer and conductor John Williams), this 25-year-old Los Angeles-based musician’s songs are far more introspective, effortlessly blending ambient, electronic, Krautrock, psychedelia and shoegaze influences into a uniquely visceral listening experience that often mirrors the surrealism of his own collage-based visual artwork.”

Into arrives July 24 on Toro Y Moi’s Company Records imprint, and is Vinyl Williams first since his 2012 debut LP, Lemniscate. You can pre-order the record here and it will include an instant download of Trance Zen Dental Spa, the collaborative EP between Vinyl Williams and Chaz Bundick.

La Luz – Don’t Wanna Be Anywhere


Seattle surf-rock group La Luz release their new Ty Segall-produced sophomore album Weirdo Shrine on August 7 via Hardly Art records. This week, the quartet paired-up with the sunny weather we’ve been getting, by sharing their breezy new track Don’t Wanna Be Anywhere.

In describing the upcoming record, Ty Segall remarked that it gave him a vision of a “world…burning with colors [he’d] never seen, like mauve that is living.”
