White Denim‘s James Petralli has been one our favorite songwriters since we first heard WD’s thrillingly frenetic, very intense raw demos on myspace (RIP) almost 10 years ago now. Petralli’s always seemed to have a million brilliant, barely-contained ideas up his sleeve, as anyone who’s experienced the evolution of his band’s adventurous/experimental and often mind-blowing live sets can attest. Over the past 5+ years, he’s harnessed and honed these ideas into some of the best jams of his life, in the form of a beautiful, sprawling, and characteristically genre-defying record under his longtime moniker Bop English. Today Bop unveils the album’s rollicking opening track, “Dani’s Blues (It Was Beyond Our Control)“; listen below, and grab it now on iTunes. Bop English’s timeless debut LP Constant Bop is out April 21 via Downtown in the States, and on limited blue & yellow vinyl via Blood and Biscuits.

Yumi Zouma follow up their stellar debut EP and an all-around breakout year in 2014 with their new EP II 10″, out March 10 on Cascine. We’ve already heard the dreamy, bittersweet dance-floor catharsis of “Alena“, and today the band unveils the Allie Avital Tsypin-directed video for new single “Catastrophe,” yet another sweetly infectious jam that captures the kind of wistful, life-affirming yearning the Yumis do so well. Part I of a two-part film from Allie’s crew BANGS, “about a fictional small town in which the people are disrupted from their day-to-day life by otherwordly forces.”

Pre-order Yumi Zouma’s EP II, and while you’re at it, pick up their lovely debut on cassette from Cascine. The group will play an EP release show in Brooklyn on 3/13 @ Cameo Gallery before finally making their way to TX for SXSW (and this) in March.
