Tim Presley of garage rockers, and frequent Ty Segall collaborators, White Fence have unleashed Pink Gorilla, their fuzzy and psychedelic new single. Anyone who dug last years critically acclaimed garage rock masterpiece Hair, will surely love this release and it’s encouraging to see Presley carrying that blistering form into 2013. This track should be played loud.
Vancouver pop-rock trio The Courtneys have unveiled the video for their latest single, 90210. The band bring their instruments and friends to the beach and thrash it out in a really feel-good video. Please can it be Summer already?
Hudson Mohawke has remixed London duo Disclosure’s latest single White Noise, featuring AlunaGeorge. White Noise was already one of my favourite tracks of 2013 thus far, yet it’s nice to hear HudMo adding his own vibe to it.
My favourite rapper, Ghostface Killah will finally release his new studio LP Twelve Reasons to Die on April 16 through RZA’s Soul Temple Records. Ghostface has just shared the album’s lead single The Rise of the Ghostface Killah, a collaboration with producer/composer Adrian Younge. This track sounds great, and RZA’s production really channels that classic 36 Chambers era sound.
Brooklyn-based experimental soul duo Denitia & Sene dropped this sensual little number on Valentines Day. Breathe.Scream.Dream is subtle and soothing, with the ambient beats almost as soft as Denitia Odigie’s vocals.
Download the track here, and expect a full debut later this year.
Portishead producer Geoff Barrow discovered German musician Anika a couple of years ago and the pair recently collaborated on Barrow’s excellent Beak> project. Anika has a self-titled EP duo April 16 and the pair have teamed up to record a smooth take on Chromatics Kill For Love cut, In The City.
Melbourne’s Super Wild Horses return with the brilliant new single Alligator, taken from their forthcoming LP Crossroads. Alligator is an energetic and infectious throwback to 60’s style guitar-led pop that has me pretty stoked about this new album, which drops April 5.
London Grammar are back with another magnificent new single, Metal & Dust. It turns out that Hey Now, a track I posted about two months ago, was just the B-side. It’s promising when new bands can put out tracks of that quality as a flip-side. Metal & Dust is another gorgeous track, backed once again by Hannah Reid’s beautiful vocals. This is a must hear.
Tyler, The Creator drops his new LP Wolf, which has three covers, on April 2 through Odd Future Records. Tyler just shared the first cut from the album with the video for Domo 23. The video features Tyler and Domo Genesis wrestling, while Earl Sweatshirt is the referee. As you can imagine, it’s pretty nuts. The song splits on the 3:36 mark into a track called Brimmer, which features Frank Ocean.
Portland Oregon-based Wampire have just shared new tune The Hearse, and it’s proving to be irresistibly catchy. For some strange reason, I didn’t think I was going to like this track, but I’ve now played it about seven times over. The bass playing on this track is nuts.
Their debut album Curiosity is out May via Polyvinyl.
