listen to the finished version of Maggie Rogers’ “Alaska”

MAGGIE ROGERS ALASKA

It's fun when a song that has been so incessantly hyped -- and was, by any measure, already a hit before it was even finished -- ends up being as good as you'd hoped. Maryland's Maggie Rogers shares the beautiful finished version of her undeniable viral sensation "Alaska", on which she manages to organically combine her impressive, more traditional folk music background with the "energy of dance music" to create a pulsing, heartfelt pastoral-dance-pop gem that reminds me of the time Amelia Randall Meath transformed her former group Mountain Man's a capella folk hymn "Play It Right" into a full-on Sylvan Esso banger...

Surfing – Deep Fantasy

SURFING DEEP FANTASY

Our friends at 100% Electronica are reissuing Deep Fantasy, the 2012 record from Melbourne, Australia artist Surfing, releasing the cult favorite for the first time ever on vinyl. If pressed to categorize this thing, we'd file the record under vaguely psychedelic lite-funk/dream-pop, or the dreaded (not by us, but you know) "chillwave/hypnogogic pop" tag...
