HOOPS ON TOP

Bloomington's Hoops share the video for their blissed-out new single "On Top", one of the many highlights from the group's forthcoming debut LP Routines...

SHE DEVILS LP

She-Devils announce debut LP, share new single “Hey Boy”

We were lucky enough to catch Montreal duo She-Devils down at SXSW last week, where we were entranced and transported by the hazy, lucid-dream-like atmosphere that Audrey Ann + Kyle Jukka channeled on a patio in the middle of a sunny downtown Austin afternoon...

Nite Jewel – 2 Good 2 Be True

Ramona Gonzalez, aka Nite Jewel, shares the dreamy first single from her stellar, janet-inspired forthcoming LP Real High, and after our first 20+ listens to the slinky dancefloor R&B gem "2 Good 2 Be True", we're pretty sure this is definitely one of the best Nite Jewel jams...

RACQUET x GvsB SXSW 2017

RACQUET x GORILLA VS. BEAR SXSW MIX

We're stoked to share this new mix we made for our friends at RACQUET Magazine, an extremely dope new independent tennis magazine that emerged last year, and has already garnered more than its share of accolades for their beautiful design and on-point writing...

TOPS SUGAR AT THE GATE

premiere: TOPS – Petals

We are beyond psyched to premiere the new single from one of our favorite bands of the last half-decade or so, Montreal's TOPS. "Petals" is a sinuous, timeless soft-funk-pop jam with some of the most bitingly relatable lyrics you'll hear in 2017 -- “got a phone full of numbers and a list full of names / no one to call / not much to say, anyway” -- taken from the group's stellar forthcoming album Sugar at the Gate, which was recorded in LA at a spot called "Glamdale," a mini-mansion and former brothel out in Glendale...

CINDY

PALMBOMEN II – Memories of Cindy

Dutch producer Kai Hugo, aka Palmbomen II, shares the surreal and transfixing vaporwave-y video for his new 12" EP Memories of Cindy Pt. 1, a record that ranges from lo-fi techno/house club tracks to soothing, mystical new-age infomercial vibes...

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:

HOOPS ON TOP

Bloomington's Hoops share the video for their blissed-out new single "On Top", one of the many highlights from the group's forthcoming debut LP Routines. The gently warped and sweetly inspirational Kevin Krauter-penned jam gets a fitting vintage VHS public access vibe, courtesy of director Jake Huber...
