Dirty Projectors Return with Video for New Song “Keep Your Name”

After teasing something new for the last few days, Dirty Projectors have returned from a four-year hiatus with new track “Keep Your Name.” The song and visual have a very nuanced beauty busting with retrained epic emotionalism that could be placed nicely next to James Blake, Bon Iver, Anohni, etc. We can only hope the rest of the yet-to-be-named album is on the same level. You can purchase the track via iTunes now..

Photo Recap: Ryley Walker, Promised Land Sound, and Kevin Krauter @ The Bishop

When Ryley Walker played the Bishop a year ago, his open-air blend of rippling guitar folk drew a pretty decent crowd of newcomers to the Bloomington bar. Now that the excellent Primrose Green has had time to seep into public consciousness, Walker’s latest Bishop show felt like a packed party of old friends reminiscing on what they did last summer. His latest release, Golden Sings That Have Been Sung, is even looser and spacier than his previous album, allowing Walker and his band the opportunity to explore mood and composition in a live set with little restrictions.

In support that night was Promised Land Sound, a Tennessee four piece playing ferocious Southern rock, as well as Kevin Krauter, best known as part of Bloomington’s own purveyors of chill, Hoops.

Van William & First Aid Kit : Revolution

A few weeks back, we introduced you to former Port O’Brien frontman and current WATERS frontman Van Pierszalowski’s new project, Van William. We’re a week or so behind the internet on this one, but should nonetheless weigh-in and make sure you know we think it’s great. He’s wisely teamed up with Swedish folk, sister duo First Aid Kit on his follow-up single, and Klara and Johanna bring beauty to every song they make, so you can guess that this one is simple and pretty perfect in its execution. This may be the best I’ve heard Van’s voice sound as well, which you gotta figure he knew he had to come with it when pairing up with these ladies!

Melbourne’s Static Animal Streams Intimate New Song “Country Room”

After releasing a celestial, lo-fi self-titled EP last year, elusive bedroom project Static Animal have announced a new EP, titled Morning Sounds, for release tomorrow, September 23rd, through Sports Day Records. Falling in a similar off-center space with acts like Ariel Pink, Hoops, and Mild High Club, the songs are a product written, recorded, and produced by teenagers in Melbourne, who choose to remain secretive letting the music speak for itself. “Country Room,” the first reveal from the collection, has been perfect as we mourn the end of summer and look to dimming hues of fall. You can pre-order the release now via their Bandcamp.
