ben_khan_131114_0180_copy

Emerging 22-year-old London producer Ben Khan has followed-up his acclaimed 1000 EP with a dazzling, hypeworthy new standalone track titled Blade (Tidal Wave Of Love). The track was premiered by Huw Stephens on BBC Radio 1 this week as his Hottest Record, and it’s easy to see why. I didn’t think anything could top Eden, which appears on his debut 1992 EP, but Blade (Tidal Wave Of Love) is undoubtedly his strongest effort to date.

Listen below and download the song for free over on Ben Khan’s Tumblr page. The 1000 EP is out now on his own label Blessed Vice.

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.”

Nicolas Jaar returned earlier this year with the 20-track surprise album Pomegranates, an alternate soundtrack to the 1969 film The Colour of Pomegranates, an Armenian film from director Sergei Parajanov. He then followed this up back in May with Nymphs II, a 12″ containing two new tracks entitled The Three Sides of Audrey and Why She’s All Alone and No One is Looking at U.

Now, the New York-based producer is back with Nymphs III, a hypnotic new 12″ containing two new tracks entitled Swim and Mistress that were both recorded in New York City between 2011 and 2015.

Nymphs III drops later today on Nicolas Jaar’s own Other People imprint. Stream both tracks below.

Nicolas Jaar releases new album Pomegranates

Earlier this year, Nicolas Jaar released an alternate soundtrack to the 1969 film The Colour of Pomegranates, an Armenian film from director Sergei Parajanov. Today, Jaar has released a free download of the LP version of the soundtrack. Nicolas Jaar also included artwork and photos in the downloadable package, which you can grab for free here.

The Color of Pomegranates is a biography of the Armenian ashug Sayat-Nova (King of Song) that attempts to reveal the poet’s life visually and poetically rather than literally.

Jaar’s upcoming 12″, Nymphs III, arrives June 29 on Other People.
