Barrie-Canyons-Art

premiere: listen to Barrie’s dazzling debut single “Canyons”

We're psyched to premiere the magical debut single from Barrie, a young Brooklyn band that we expect will win a lot of hearts in 2018. The group, whose members serendipitously converged on NYC from various locales -- Baltimore, Boston, São Paulo, London, and Upstate New York, specifically -- says that every revision to the sumptuous, warmly glowing "Canyons" "was like a swipe of sandpaper, stripping it down and roughing up the sweetness...

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

premiere: Launder – Annie Blue

ANNIE BLUE

We've already heard the excellent lead single from Launder's all-killer new Pink Cloud EP, which features Zachary Cole Smith of DIIV on guitar, SoKo on vocals, and production from Day Wave, and today the LA-based artist -- real name: John Cudlip -- shares the EP's more urgent, but still dreamy as all get-out opening track...

Caroline No – Alex

CAROLINE NO

What are the odds that Caroline Says and Caroline No would each drop gorgeous, heartbreaking new singles on the very same day? Probably not very high, but here we are: Australian Caroline Kennedy and her group -- which includes the great Mick Turner of Dirty Three on this one -- have shared a beautiful song from their new Swimmers EP, out next month...
