premiere: Hater – Cry Later

Psyched to premiere another gut punch of a track from Malmö, Sweden’s Hater, taken from the group's wonderful forthcoming LP You Tried, out next month on Stockholm label PNKSLM...

CHTHONIC

premiere: Julia Lucille – Eternally

We're psyched to debut the devastating opening track from Chthonic, the new full-length from Austin's Julia Lucille. Julia counts two of our favorites -- Alela Diane + Sibylle Baier -- among her biggest influences, and the stunning incantation "Eternally" is every bit as disarming and lovely as the most haunting gems in that ethereal dream-folk lineage...

gvsb_songs2016

Today we follow up our albums of 2016 list with the much more interesting list of our 101 favorite songs of the year. Featuring a couple of inventive flips of Shangaan Electro and Tropicália samples in the top 3, the powerful opening missive from A Tribe Called Quest's first album in nearly 20 years, an old Radiohead love song, multiple jams each from Frank Ocean, Danny Brown, and Carly Rae, undeniable breakthrough singles from Whitney, Mitski, Maggie Rogers, and The Homie, another strong showing from TX's own S U R V I V E boys (whose massive year culminated this morning in 2 Grammy noms in the same category), and many more incredible and essential tracks that helped us all make it through this pathetic excuse for a year. Hit play on that 6 hour spotify playlist + check the full list below:

GORILLA VS. BEAR’s SONGS OF 2016

premiere: Hater – Cry Later

cry-later-artwork

Psyched to premiere another gut punch of a track from Malmö, Sweden’s Hater, taken from the group's wonderful forthcoming LP You Tried, out next month on Stockholm label PNKSLM. Like the previous singles from the new record -- "Mental Haven" + "Had It All" -- "Cry Later" is a very good lovelorn indie-pop song that's elevated to greatness by Caroline Landahl's gorgeous, pining vocals, which radiate with a warmth and fragile strength that destroys all of the feels every time...

HOOPS ROUTINES

Bloomington's Hoops share the first glimpse at their stellar forthcoming debut LP Routines, and the group stays pretty true-to-form in the best possible way with the typically melodic, blissed-out and easy guitar pop gem "Rules", which I believe floated around in solo demo form for a bit last year...

stream a very chillwave-y soundtrack from Grizzly Bear’s Chris Bear

CHRIS BEAR

Late last year, Grizzly Bear's Chris Bear created an original score for HBO's weed comedy High Maintenance. And as it turns out, the dreamy soundtrack harkens back to the heyday of chillwave, with tracks like the twinkling opener "Aloha" recalling early Washed Out, while standout "Pup Luv" features Bear's(...
