nicolas-jaar

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.

“I’m not claiming authorial input,” Snaith announced on Twitter. “Please support the original tracks / artists.”

Lightning Bug – Bobby

Lifted off their recently released debut full-length, Floaters, comes Bobby, the mesmerizing new track from the emerging New York outfit Lightning Bug.
Using elements of Krautrock, Shoegaze and Dream-Pop, the group have crafted an ambitious and immensely promising track seemingly effortlessly as they simply started out as a group of best friends who gradually started to throw some ideas together.

Aside from the fact they’ve rather impressively fused varied genres together, this songs coloured instrumentation, dreamlike vocals, off-kilter synths, reverb-soaked guitars and kaleidoscopic melodies should be enough to keep Bobby on your rotation for some time. Listen below.

Lightning Bug‘s debut full-length Floaters is available via the group’s Bandcamp.
