september 2018 mix

Presenting our new monthly mix for September 2018, featuring some of the best tracks we heard over the past month. This month's mix, which features new music from Yaeji, Men I Trust, Grimes, the Samps, Thom Yorke, Helena Deland + more, is extra good in an attempt to atone for my blatant disregard for the rich tradition of the GvsB monthly mix last month, in which I irresponsibly posted no mix. Listen below:

One More

Yaeji returns with hypnotic new track “One More”

Fresh off of dropping that silky Charli XCX remix just last week, NYC house music producer and inevitable pop-star Yaeji -- the creator of the two best debut releases of last year -- makes an auspicious return with the first new track of her own in 2018, and it's another one of her entrancing, uniquely soft-almost-to-the-point-of-whispered bangers/dancefloor fillers, on which she deftly and fluidly alternates between Korean and English over a thumping but relatively airy beat to fully hypnotic effect...

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:

Barrie x Gorilla vs. Bear takeover: tour footage & unreleased snippet

Screen Shot 2018-10-12 at 10.37.08 AM

We had a bunch of footage from when we brought noah's parents' vhs camera with us on tour to sxsw. Our friend Ricky Alba shot most of it -- he's a good friend and good artist from Brooklyn.

We edited it together over a demo of mine that's been laying around and doesn't have a home. Just for fun :) -- Barrie

Secret Friend is an experimental dance party that I throw with my friends from POND Mag and my other band, Psymon Spine.
