Animal Collective – FloriDada


Animal Collective return with FloriDada the energetic and kaleidoscopic opening track and lead single from their forthcoming eleventh full-length album, Painting With. The forthcoming album features contributions from John Cale and Colin Stetson, was engineered by Sonny DiPerri, and will be released on February 19 through Domino Records.

Painting With will be released on CD, LP and a deluxe LP bundled with a 7″ and a zoetropic turntable slipmat. The album will be available in three different covers, each featuring a different band member (that’s the Panda Bear cover above). The 7″ contains two non-album tracks.

VIDEO: Girls Names – Reticence


Belfast post-punk outfit Girls Names have shared the Matthew Reed-directed video for Reticence, the blistering opening track from their exceptional 2015 LP, Arms Around a Vision. A press release for the visuals explain that the video “explores the contrast between human form and machinery. It’s a duality mirrored in the track where dogged humanity and discordant clang and clatter meet to stunning effect.”

“The band were keen to do something which drew on a tension between mechanical movement and the more organic rhythm of human bodies. I then put that concept through a kind of 80s art school filter, which felt in keeping with the mood of the song: using a lot of 16mm film as source material and a slightly old-fashioned approach to montage in the way it’s cut” – Matthew Reed.

Arms Around a Vision is available now via Tough Love Records. Watch the Reticence visuals below.

Your Friend – Heathering


Kansas-based songwriter Taryn Miller, aka Your Friend, will release her forthcoming debut album Gumption on January 29 via Domino Records.

Recorded alongside producer Nicolas Vernhes (Deerhunter, War On Drugs, Animal Collective) at the Rare Book Room in Brooklyn, the album will follow Miller’s debut self-recorded EP, Jekyll/Hyde.

“I was trying to remove myself from an approach that I had followed before, but still wanted to bring in that melodic element that is most inherent to me, and marry it with a more sonically meditative landscape” – Taryn Miller.

Gumption drops January 29 on Domino Records. Pre-order here.
