Twin Shadow – “To The Top”
Twin Shadow have taken a break from their UNDER THE CVRS project, to give us this absolute gem. “To The Top.” is a bit of ’80s-style slow-dance prom goodness. Foreigner’s Mick Jones would be highly impressed, as are we.
SZA teams up with Kendrick Lamar on Z cut, “Babylon”.
London singer Kwabs has his new EP, Love, coming out on May 20th via Atlantic. Today, we get the incredible SOHN-produced track “Something Right”. As if we weren’t already loving SOHN’s brand new, soon to be album of the year, Tremors.Great things coming out of London right now…
We have been enamored with English duo Aquilo for a little over a year now. This morning we have been blessed with their exquisitely beautiful self-titled debut EP. Each delicately crafted track brings us further into the gorgeous, sparse world that Aquilo has created.
We are already about as amped as you can possibly get for SOHN‘s much-anticipated LP, Tremors, coming out next week through 4AD. Adding to that, we get a spine-tingling 4AD Session of him performing album track “Bloodflows”. The third in the series including “Artiface” and “The Wheel”. View all 3 below…thank us later.
The Antlers beautifully burst (so to speak) on to the scene with 2011′s Burst Apart, which still to this day, is one of our favorite albums…ever. Today they announce a new full length, Familiars, which was recorded and produced by the band at their Brooklyn studio and will be out on June 17 via Anti- (US)/Transgressive (UK). The first single, “Palace”, is a beautifully peaceful number that intimately opens the door for what we hope will be an exquisite album. Accompanied by an equally gorgeous video.
Stockholm folk sisters First Aid Kit drop “My Silver Lining,” the first single of their upcoming new record Stay Gold (out on June 10 via Columbia). There first album since their incredible 2012 release, The Lion’s Roar. Produced by Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes) and featuring the rich orchestration of the Omaha Symphony Orchestra, as well as arrangements from Nate Walcott (Bright Eyes, Broken Bells). The song certainly maintains their folk roots, but adds some ’70s rhinestone country elements. Also, check out the album teaser below.
One of our absolute favorite acts of the past year, London Grammar, stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live last night. Beautifully performing “Metal & Dust,” which is easily our favorite track on their incredible debut LP, If You Wait. Hannah Reid is absolutely radiant in her performance. Gorgeous.
