ALDOUS HARDING BLEND

watch Aldous Harding’s “Blend” video

Aldous Harding shares the stunning video for the opening track from one of the year's best albums. Directed + edited by Charlotte Evans. Not quite as intense as seeing Aldous live, but probably about as close as you can get. Aldous says the video's concept "is based on that awful scene from 'Apocalypse Now' where the Playmates pile out of the helicopter," adding, "the costume was handmade for me, it turned out great. It's in the bin. I spent eight hours dancing on a Lazy Susan, it was easy really.” Party is out now on 4AD:

GORILLA VS. BEAR ALBUMS OF 2016

It may or may not be that time yet, but here is the highly subjective list of our 60 favorite albums -- too long, I know, but we could have gone much deeper -- from an unfathomably weird, incredible, terrifying 2016. It was a year marked by loss and uncertainty, and that might be why music felt more monumental to us than ever. Thanks for sticking with us for another year. Check the full list + a lovingly curated four-hour Spotify playlist below, and as always, we'd love to hear about your favorites that we might have missed.

GORILLA VS. BEAR’s ALBUMS OF 2016

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:

Kedr Livanskiy announces debut LP Ariadna, listen to the beautiful title track

Kedr Livanskiy - Ariadna Single Art

Kedr Livanskiy shares the dreamy title track from one of our most anticipated full-lengths of 2017, the follow-up to her brilliant 2016 debut EP January Sun. According to her label 2MR, the new record was inspired by "the Izhevsk (sometimes referred to as "the capital of Russian electronic music") sound of the 80s", and album-opener "Ariadna" is a perfect, glimmering union of Yana Kedrina's melodic, otherworldly dream-pop sensibilities and her thumping and hypnotic underground club music, and it's probably the most accessible track she's released to date...
