Clams Casino has announced what I guess you could technically call his debut album (he has mixtapes and and EP prior to his name) titled 32 Levels ready to drop on July 15th via Columbia Records. To commemorate the moment, he has also share a video for the heavenly first track “Blast.” The visuals for the track were done by Strandloop. There is no pre-order yet for the LP, but expect that very soon.

After recently releasing a 7″ for the percussion heavy “No More Parties in the Attic,” Exploded View, the new project fronted by journalist-turned-singer Annika Henderson (aka Anika) have announced their self-titled debut full-length scheduled to drop on August 19th via Sacred Bones, whom they released the 7″ with. The album was recorded using single take recordings created with other members Martin Thulin (of Crocodiles), Hugo Quezada and Hector Melgarejo, while in Mexico City. Anika’s Nico-esque vocals feel nicely improvised over what plays out like a drawn out jam session flush with dark atmospherics.

It has been a minute since we last heard from Hannah Rodgers, better known as Pixx. “Baboo” is her new track and serves as the first new music since last year’s quite good Fall In EP released through always reliable 4AD. With the reveal comes a lomographic video complimenting the song’s theme of friendship, specifically with Rodgers’ best friend, Alice, who she says “has shown me so much about the world and whose friendship I cherish more than anything else.” You can grab the track here.
