Their latest song revealed from it is the wistful “No One Wants It To Happen To You” pulling beauty out of loss and sadness.

“Pray for Rain,” Pure Bathing Culture’s latest song and title track to their forthcoming album (out October 23rd via Partisan Records/Memphis Industries), has been on constant repeat since dropping last month. We now have a visual for the song directed by Greg Hardes & Jacob Proud taking the song to an unexpected dark stage at a strip club, although not so surprising considering their homebase of Portland has the most strip clubs in the US per capita. Watch below.

Yumi Zouma Announce EP Collection, Stream Unreleased Track

A while ago, we were disappointed when our copy of Yumi Zouma’s limited-edition first EP was damaged by a dumb accident. At the time, we reached out to our friends over at Cascine to see if they had any extras we could grab. Unfortunately, they didn’t, but they did inform us they were planning on releasing both EPs together in the very near future. We are happy to see the day has arrived with the announcement of a deluxe 12″ bundle of both with bonuses of their Air France cover and collaboration along with previously unreleased song “Right, Off the Bridge” found below. The bundle can be ordered here with the first 500 copies coming on translucent vinyl with blue haze and a colored silkscreen wrap.

For those that have been following Natasha Khan aka Bat for Lashes’ instagram, she has been teasing a new project dubbed Sexwitch comprised of herself, TOY, and producer Dan Carey. On September 25th via The Echo Label Limited, they will be releasing a self-titled album featuring six covers of traditional songs. The first song from it to see the light of day is “Helelyos” made up of world-music style percussion and instrumentation that almost feels like a Warpaint-esque mystical groove. Listen below.

Listen to “Prisoner” from The Weeknd featuring Lana Del Rey

When The Weeknd and Lana Del Rey burst upon the during the early part of the decade, everyone wondered if they could keep the momentum and carry it into mainstream status. Here we are heading towards 2016 and not only they full-on crossover stars, but they have decided to join forces on new song “Prisoner” set to appear on Weeknd’s new LP Beauty Behind The Madness hitting stores on August 28th via XO/Republic. The results are very strong with both’s penchant for putting together sad, dark-tinged songs meshing seamlessly. It is a nice antithesis to possible song of the summer “Can’t Feel My Face.” Listen below.

Korallreven Share New Song “Here In Iowa”, Call It Quits

“It has been a trippie trip, sort of a dream come true, sort of a dream become shattered. Kinda incredible how Korallreven, with this weird name in Swedish snowballed from bedroom recordings in Stockholm into a headlining US tour, festivals around Europe, amazing collaborations and all this love we have felt from all around. It’s been magic, but there is a time for everything and an end to everything too, also with Korallreven.

So, enjoy this single, as you would the last drop of fresh water in the jungle. It sort of underlines exactly everything we wanted to do from the beginning but never yet achieved. Lifelovingness, big words and melancholy in three and a half minutes, for the last time.”

Daniel & Marcus

We are bummed to hear that Swedish duo of Marcus Joons and Daniel Tjäder aka Korallreven, responsible for some of the more dreamy, nostalgia-inducing music of the first half of this decade, have decided to call it a day. As one last exclamation point, they have shared new song “Here In Iowa” for everyone to take with them. The song will be released digitally via Cascine (worldwide) and Tuf Luv/Sony (Europe), and as a picture flexi-disc via Be Here Records. They also have a signed and number limited-edition print you can grab here.
