We’ve already heard “Hands All Over Me” and the absolute gem “Cranekiss” from Tamaryn, now they have shared a third song “Softcore” dipped in more ominous tones. Just like the others, it will be on their new album Cranekiss available on August 28th via Mexican Summer. Listen below.
Santigold is currently finishing up a new album slated before the end of the year, but in the meantime she has shared a new song “Radio” for mass consumption. The song will appear on the latest John Green novel turned movie Paper Towns, which will also feature songs from The War on Drugs, HAIM, Son Lux, Kindness, and much more. While the song isn’t the rhythmic club banger we prefer Santi, it still is a solid cut. Listen below.
Newfoundland one-man band and personal favorite Fog Lake has quietly unveiled a couple of lo-fidelity, bedroom gems leading up to the release of a new album, Victoria Park, tomorrow via Orchid Tapes on a limited cassette (no word on vinyl yet) and his Bandcamp. The album follows last year’s under-the-radar jewel virgo indigo.
The tracks revealed thus far frome it are “Bury My Dead Horses” and “Andy” to go along with an unmastered (and perfect) version of opening track “Renegade” from back in April. While the songs might feel out of place in the summer months, they should appeal quite nicely for those who have been dealing with massive amounts of rain and really take hold once we fade towards the autumn months. Find the songs below and also head over to the great blog Portals to check out a recent Residency feature they did for the project here and here.
Shura’s epic latest creation “White Light” has an underlying sci-fi theme (as well as being about her twin brother) that is further explored in the new video for it. Directed by Noel Paul, the visual consists of a woman seeking out a man with otherworldly qualities. It ever so subtly reminds us of the M83 video trilogy from a few years back. Watch below.
Lo-fi bedroom producer Creeping Pink recently announced his debut LP, Mirror Woods, will be out on July 13th via Castle Face Records, the label founded by Thee Oh Sees’ John Dwyer. Characterizing his sound as “tape glam”, he creates soothing sounds that harnesses both organic and electronic elements. Label head Dwyer calls the album “a fog of memories caught in the sun-flakes settling in the forest” he was “taken” with after one listen, although he warns “one listen is not enough” to really hear all of the “glittering gems woven into these tunes.” Having previously revealed song “Come Into My World,” we have the album’s title track for your ears. The track is a brilliant combination of noise and traditional pop construction bringing the listener on an audible journey. Find it below.
