GORILLA VS. BEAR YACHT ROCK 2017 MIX

Presenting our second annual summer mixtape of modern yacht rock vibes: Like last year, we’re using the term "yacht rock" loosely here, to include myriad sounds inspired by smooth, sumptous soft rock grooves, while occasionally veering off into balearica, pillowy soft funk, sophistipop, cosmic disco novelties, psych-soul, and darker forms of hypnogogia. Listen/download + check the full tracklist below:

LA electro-R&B luminary Ramona Gonzalez -- aka Nite Jewel -- follows up one of the best records of 2017 with a glowing new 10-track, bandcamp-exclusive b-sides record, featuring demos, alternate mixes, and previously unreleased jams from the Real High sessions (including the absolutely gorgeous "Never Show", featuring string arrangements by Ramona, "inspired by her concurrent work on a film soundtrack"), plus a few tracks from her new Italians Do It Better 12"...

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.

Mønic – Deep Summer (Burial Remix)

DEEP SUMMER BURIAL

Burial drops a rare summer release in the form of a lovely 10-minute reimagining of Mønic's new single Deep Summer, out this Friday on 12" via UK label Osiris Music.
