Silver Swans Stream “Jealousy” from New EP

It has been since 2013 that we last heard new material from dreamy San Francisco duo Silver Swans. Today, they are dropping their new EP, Illusions, through Italian label Coypu Records. The initial single from the six-song release is “Jealousy” offering subdued dance beats floating under Ann Yu’s straight-faced vocals. It is a cloudy pop gem easily digested. Purchase the release here.

Stream the Latest EP from Boston’s Mini Dresses

We totally slept on the latest EP from Austin born, Boston based band Mini Dresses. Titled Sad Eyes, the collection was recorded over the last year in their kitchen on tapes and laptops, so as you might expect, it is beautifully lo-fi as a result. Despite being only four-songs, the release is immensely satisfying playing over your headphones kicked back on a rainy autumnal day. You can grab the EP along with the rest of their grossly underrated back catalog via their Bandcamp.

Watch The xx’s Visual for “On Hold”

The xx’s third LP is out on January 13th via Young Turks. They have offered up a video for the first single from it “On Hold” directed by Alasdair McLellan. It was shot in Marfa, TX, where the band wrote and recorded some of their new record, using local teenagers as extras. You can order the 7″ of the song along with the full album here.

Hoops Stream Demo Version of “Gemini”

Hoops just made available a demo or alternative version of their song “Gemini,” which serves as a highlight from their self-titled EP (purchase here) released earlier this year through Fat Possum. While the original is nice, we can’t help but find this version more satisfying and true to the raw, lo-fi vibes of their Tape 1-3 (find here, here, and here) releases that attracted us to the project in the first place.
