Das Body - Graceland

video: Das Body – Graceland

Super psyched to share this stellar new video from Oslo's Ellie Linden and her band Das Body for their undeniable neon-pop jam "Graceland", starring Ellie and an absurdly jacked bodybuilder. Shout out to the Fader for the premiere, in which they astutely call the surreal, glowing, Lykke Hagen-directed visuals "a chic neo-noir dance party for one", also noting the strong Twin Peaks vibe. Watch below + pick up Das Body's debut EP here.

gvsb_albums_2017

As the internet's collective attention span continues to dwindle away and the clickbait economy slowly ruins everything good, we made a conscious effort this year to spend more time listening to fewer things. Discovering new favorites will always remain a priority around here, but it felt good to devote more quality time to absorbing ambitious, flawed, elaborately nuanced and layered masterpieces like Dust, Quazarz, Party, and The OOZ. And the more immediate records that we fell in love with at first listen -- TOPS’ Sugar at the Gate, the super charismatic Carti mixtape, and Kelly Lee Owens’ enveloping debut full-length, to name a few -- felt more like all-time favorites with each spin. While anyone in our top 5 could have staked a legit Album of the Year claim depending on the day, we had to put the two EPs that announced the arrival of dance music's brightest new star in their rightful spot at the top of our list. Here are our favorite records of 2017:

GORILLA VS. BEAR’S ALBUMS OF 2017

Lou Hayter – Cherry on Top

Cherry on Top - Single

Shout out to Be With Records for the heads up on this infectious new jam from London's Lou Hayter, the former keyboardist from New Young Pony Club (who were an absolutely sick band, and maybe a little ahead of their time). "Cherry on Top" just dropped today, and it's a glittery, summer-daydream-y jam, perfect for convertibles, pool parties, and roller-discos. Listen:

video premiere: Penelope Trappes – CONNECTOR

PENELOPE TRAPPES CONNECTOR

We're psyched to premiere the visuals for "Connector", the darkly mesmeric new single from Penelope Trappes' forthcoming album Penelope Two, due next week on Fabric's Houndstooth label. In tandem, the song and its striking accompanying visuals -- which were directed by Penelope with Agnes Haus, and are intended to be an "isolating and direct personification of Penelope's search to bring light into the dark and emotional period of her own life" -- elicit a hauntingly spectral Under the Skin vibe, with harrowing but hopeful themes of rebirth/renewal, beautifully blurring the lines between eerie conjuring and meditative lullaby...

Tiny Ruins – Olympic Girls

OLYMPIC GIRLS

New Zealand's Hollie Fullbrook, aka Tiny Ruins, shares the second resplendent single from her forthcoming LP Olympic Girls, coming in early 2019. Fullbrook says of the "Olympic Girls" visuals, which were directed + edited by Charlotte Evans, "I wanted the video to contrast with the one for 'How Much.' Where that was glamorous, shadowy and elusive, I wanted this to be exposed, in plain view - in the light of day". Watch below:
