LOMA – BLACK WILLOW

Loma is the new collaborative project from the incredible Dripping Springs, TX band Cross Record + Shearwater's Jonathan Meiburg, and today the group graces us with some beautifully mystical vibes in the form of the devastating, ASMR-inducing first single from their forthcoming album, with a powerful and haunting accompanying video from director Andrew McGlennon...

MEN I TRUST IHTBA

MEN I TRUST – “I Hope to be around”

Montreal group Men I Trust's most recent single "Tailwhip" is a perfect song, a stylishly understated indie-dance-pop track with an irresistibly velvety groove, a magical, infectious melody, and poignant, casually profound lyrics that are impossible to shake ("this country dog won't die in the city")...

DELETE BEACH

Mica Levi – Delete Beach

Incredible stuff from Mica Levi's original score from dystopian anime short Delete Beach. Order the double 10" vinyl release -- limited to 500 copies, complete with a booklet with anime cells, out today via DDS -- and hear more from the score here.

oh my

premiere: NADINE – Ultra Pink

You aren't going to encounter many more immediately endearing debuts than NADINE's forthcoming full-length oh my, a playful, warm, almost loungy collection of deceptively sophisticated pop gems that somehow manage to feel instantly familiar, but also continue to unfurl and reveal their understated magic over repeat listens...

SASSY 009 EP

stream Sassy 009’s hypnotic debut Do you mind EP

Following a couple of extremely hypnotic and restorative singles that we've had in heavy rotation on our SiriusXM show from the moment we heard them, Oslo's Sassy 009 shares one of the most promising and lowkey life-giving (it's the flute) debuts of the year, officially out Friday on Hard Up / Luft Recordings:

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

Negative Gemini – Bad Baby

NEGATIVE GEMINI

Lindsey French aka Negative Gemini shares the swooning title track from her highly anticipated (by us) new Bad Baby EP, coming in January 2018. It's the only love song that Negative Gemini's ever done, and French tells us it's meant to capture the "playful and kind of reckless" feeling of "falling in love and just being obsessed with someone almost to a fault...

Young Ejecta’s soaring Build a Fire remixed by Napolian + Ellie Herring on new 12″

blossombean (1)

Leanne Macomber + Joel Ford released the most epic Young Ejecta jam yet over the summer, and now they're dropping an extremely limited Build A Fire 12" featuring two inspired remixes of the soaring track -- including a beautiful, spacey re-imagining by Ford's regular collaborator Napolian + a pulsing dancefloor re-work by Ellie Herring, each taking Macomber's heartrending plea to entirely different places --with the duo's 2015 EP The Planet on vinyl for the first time on the flip...

premiere: Tea Leigh & Luke Reed – Underwater

UNDERWATER

Psyched to premiere this warm and fuzzy soft-focus collab from renowned tattoo artist / musician Tea Leigh & the man responsible for one our favorite records of 2017, Luke Reed. The achingly pretty "Underwater" is part of a series of stand-alone singles from Reed that the Native Sound is putting out this year and next, and it's a wistful, gently woozy love song that will almost certainly elicit a dreamlike state of longing that you won't be in any hurry to shake...
