Holy Ghost! have released a new track that was co-produced by James Murphy, brilliantly titled Teenagers In Heat. It’s an outtake from their upcoming album Dynamics, and the guys have kindly released it as a free download.
Let’s face it, if you don’t like Holy Ghost! you’re pretty much zero fun right?
Dynamics drops September 10 on DFA Records.
King Krule has finally confirmed he will release his highly-anticipated debut album, 6 Feet Beneath The Moon, will be released next month. It’s an album I’ve really been looking forward to hearing, and on the back of his new tune, Easy Easy, it’s shaping up to be a good one.
Using understated instrumentals, like on Rock Bottom, Archy Marshall allows his unique voice to stand out. It’s easy to forget this kids only eighteen-years-old, as his powerful Mick Jones/Joe Strummer-esque lyrics display a talent way beyond his years.
6 Feet Beneath The Moon drops August 24 on XL Recordings.
6 Feet Beneath the Moon Tracklist:
1 Easy Easy
2 Border Line
3 Has This Hit?
4 Foreign 2
6 Baby Blue
8 A Lizard State
9 Will I Come
10 Ocean Bed
11 Neptune Estate
12 The Krockadile
13 Out Getting Ribs
14 Bathed in Grey
Tarantino is the awesome new single by Iowa-based garage rockers The Wheelers. The video for the track premiered over on Pigeons and Planes earlier in the week, and it’s the first of theirs to be taken from their forthcoming self-titled LP.
Tarantino packs one serious punch. It’s catchy as hell, and a whole load of fun too. It’s actually kind of addictive in a way, which sometimes isn’t an easy thing to achieve when trying to nail a garage-rock tune. Anyway, check it out below.
The Wheelers is available for pre-order from Maximum Ames Records. And while you’re at it, hit up the groups website for some dope merch.
Be All Be Easy is the refreshing new release by Brooklyn-based folk rockers Woods. It’s actually a re-recording of a song from 2011′s Sun and Shade. This is harmless and infectious number that’s made to be played while relaxing in the sun. Enjoy it.
Be All Be Easy was released today. Grab the single here.
I Break Horses, the pseudonym of Swedish duo Maria Lindén and Fredrik Balck, have shared their smokey new single, Denial. It’s set to be released on new 12″ for their label Bella Union while they ready the follow-up to their outstanding 2011 debut, Hearts.
Denial sees I Break Horses returning on fine form with a fresh and more expansive sound. Edging ever so slightly away from the shoegaze stylings of their debut record, they have instead adopted a much tighter electro-pop approach that will definitely find its way to a larger audience. It’s refreshing to hear artists unburdened by the pressures of “second album syndrome” and recording something that sounds this good, and that might not even make it on to that album.
Ariel Pink has teamed up with Jorge Elbrecht to record a very chilled out and melodic new track, called Hang on to Life. The track is for a new 7″ for Mexican Summer, and it’s out today.
It’s the first in a series of collaborative singles by Elbrecht, and his next recording will see him collaborate with Chairlift’s Caroline Polachek. Keep an ear out for that one.
Kanye West has unveiled the official video for Black Skinhead, which looks likely to be released as a standalone single shortly. Check out the visuals below.
Yeezus is out now on Def Jam.
Sampha, the vocalist behind some of Jessie Ware and SBTRKT’s finest moments, dropped some eagerly-awaited new material today.
Without is taken from his forthcoming new Duel EP, the follow-up to his 2010 Sundanza EP.
Duel drops July 29 through his label Young Turks.
Night Flowers, a London-based dream-pop/shoegaze outfit, have just dropped a double A-side for their brand new tracks Single Beds and North.
Both tunes are available for free over on their Bandcamp, so download them while they’re available. My pick of the two tracks is the simply gorgeous North, with those irresistible 90’s style guitars and dreamy female vocals that are beyond beautiful. Its hit me hard.
It’s like I’m hearing The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart for the first time again.
Sorry for the lack of posts over the weekend. I bought The Last Of Us last week and it pretty much took over my life.
Kicking things off for the week is the newest tune to be taken from AlunaGeorge’s forthcoming debut LP, Body Music.
If you’re already a fan of AlunaGeorge, then Bad Idea will tick off most of what you like about the London duo. Sugar-sweet vocals, shiny production, and plenty of fresh and infectious pop hooks.
Body Music drops July 26. Pre-order it here.
