video premiere: Earth Girl Helen Brown – Language of Love

EGHB

We've been huge fans of everything Heidi Alexander's done since we fell in love with that classic debut from her former band the Sandwitches almost a decade ago, and the latest transmission from her shapeshifting alter-ego Earth Girl Helen Brown is no exception...

Amen Dunes – Blue Rose

AMEN DUNES BLUE ROSE

Amen Dunes shares the second song/video from our favorite full-length of 2018 so far, out next month on Sacred Bones. Freedom is so affecting and immersive as a cohesive work that it almost feels inappropriate to post single tracks out of context, but opener "Blue Rose" works as well as any as an intro to the record's vivid recurring themes and characters, timeless songwriting, and undeniable swagger...

oklou – Friendless

premiere: listen to Barrie’s dazzling debut single “Canyons”

Barrie-Canyons-Art

We're psyched to premiere the magical debut single from Barrie, a young Brooklyn band that we expect will win a lot of hearts in 2018. The group, whose members serendipitously converged on NYC from various locales -- Baltimore, Boston, São Paulo, London, and Upstate New York, specifically -- says that every revision to the sumptuous, warmly glowing "Canyons" "was like a swipe of sandpaper, stripping it down and roughing up the sweetness...

premiere: Jorge Elbrecht – Here Lies (feat. Tamaryn)

JE_HERELIES_FRONT_COVER_HI_RES

The prolific Jorge Elbrecht unveils the title track from his ambitious new conceptual record Here Lies, created over what a press release calls a "10-year period of deterioration" in which Elbrecht suffered some kind of break with reality and spiraled into a deep depression, ultimately transforming into "an atrophied chassis, meandering from one foggy idea to the next, unable to focus...
