GORILLA VS. BEAR MODERN YACHT ROCK III SUMMER 2018 MIXTAPE

gvsb_yacht_2018

Presenting the third installment in our series of annual modern yacht rock summer mixtapes: As always, we’re expanding the yacht rock universe here to include more modern sounds inspired by those classic easy listening FM-gold guilty pleasures of the late '70s and early '80s, while occasionally veering off into balearica, pillowy soft funk, sophisti-pop, long-lost obscurities, exotica, and darker forms of hypnogogia. Listen/download + check the full tracklist below:

Shout out to Hype Machine for debuting Hana Vu's new EP How Many Times Have You Driven By, out this Friday on our label Luminelle Recordings.

Das Body – Boys

Das Body 3000

We're beyond psyched to welcome Oslo's Ellie Linden and her band Das Body to the Luminelle Recordings family. Ellie's already been called "brilliant" by i-D on the strength of a handful of rousing, increasingly buzzy performances in Das Body's native Norway, and the group's debut single "Boys" is a balmy and brash summer jam that conjures some vibrant lost '80s dance-pop anthem and earliest Lykke Li vibes in equal measure...

2018.5: our favorite albums + songs of the year so far

gvsb_2018.5

We're not quite halfway through 2018, but here's our annual recap of the albums + songs of the first half of the year anyway. I’ve excluded any records that we’ve released on our new label Luminelle Recordings; otherwise, the stellar new ones from Helena Deland, Anemone, and Hana Vu would have all figured prominently into both of these lists. Also, I guess a few of these aren’t officially out yet. Sorry!

premiere: Primo – Mirage

PRIMO

We're psyched to debut this buzzing new track from Melbourne, Australia trio Primo, taken from the group's addictive debut album Amici, coming soon via Upset The Rhythm. The label says that Primo's deceptively minimal, alternately lilting/ripping post-punk jams sound like "the places you go when you’re working hard nine-to-five and can’t go anywhere," and the fleeting "Mirage" is a blistering intro to the group's detached urgency and infectious, almost gleeful cynicism, always sweetened just a bit by those disarming three-part harmonies...

I've had the first two tracks that PYNKIE shared from the record on repeat for a few months now, and now you can stream the whole thing in all its glory below...

Bella Boo – Fire Fire

BELLA BOO FIRE

This one was a vinyl-only track until today, but Sweden's Bella Boo just upped the dreamy highlight/opener from her magical new Fire 12" EP on her soundcloud. Listen to the hazy, chilled-out groove of "Fire Fire", our favorite track from our favorite house 12" of the year so far, out now on Studio Barnhus:
