GvsB AUGUST 2016 MIX

august 2016 mix

Listen to our AUGUST 2016 monthly mix, featuring the best new tracks from the past month:

NEGATIVE GEMINI ROLLERCOASTER

premiere: Negative Gemini – Rollercoaster

We fell in love with the music of Lindsey French, aka Negative Gemini, through her dance-pop gems "Forget Your Future" (taken from last year's stellar Real Virtual Unison EP), "You Never Knew" + "Don't Worry Bout the Fuck I'm Doin", all gorgeous, ethereal tracks that highlighted French's dreamy melodic sensibility and an uncanny, almost Grimes-esque feel for pop songcraft...

RUTH CHROMATICS

CHROMATICS – DEAR TOMMY

Dear Tommy is real. Hear the haunting title track + check the album's tracklist after the jump. Video shot + edited by CHROMATICS:

E MO TION SIDE B

stream Carly Rae Jepsen’s E•MO•TION: Side B

I feel like the average pop star dreams of writing one song as good as Carly Rae Jepsen's b-sides. One highlight: the early Madonna vibes are so strong on "First Time", which was first released on the Japan-only E•MO•TION REMIXED + that dropped earlier this year...

The Bells

stream Kornél Kovács’ beautiful new album

With new albums from Vince Staples, Carly Rae Jepsen, and Young Thug all coming in the same day, it'd be easy for an eclectic collection of emotional and transportive dance music from a little-known Swedish producer to get lost in the shuffle...

STRANGER-THINGS-VHS-STEELBERG1

stream the Stranger Things soundtrack

We posted up a few previews of this earlier, but now you can stream volume one of the brilliant Stranger Things OST (by DFW's own Kyle Dixon + Michael Stein of S U R V I V E) in its entirety on Apple Music...

GvsB ALBUMS OF 2015

We feel pretty confident proclaiming 2015 the best year for new music this decade, and we'd even go so far as to say it's been arguably our favorite year in the history of this site. So many stars seemed to serendipitously align this year — our 10th as a blog — for sounds that veered right into our own personal, sometimes insular little lane: the triumphant return of Grimes; the improbable meteoric rise of Leon Bridges from seemingly out of nowhere (i.e., right here in our own backyard); a sweet, thoroughly relatable, '90s-hip-hop-inspired record from Panda Bear (our favorite artist); two Beach House albums in the span of two months; D'Angelo with probably the best show we've seen since the last time he rolled through town 15 years ago; Grouper started a pop group; the summer of Jamie xx; and on and on. If 2015 had seen the release of Dear Tommy and new music from Shabazz Palaces or Burial (all still possible, I suppose), our blog might have imploded. With all of that said, I still feel like we went as deep as ever this year, and as always, there were some genuinely incredible hidden gems to uncover if you spent a little time digging. Let us know how your year went as you check the full list of our 50 favorite records of the year, and lose yourself in our nearly 3-hour-long spotify playlist:
