Grimes starts new “artist co-operative” / label Eerie Organization; hear the first release http://www.gorillavsbear.net/2015/08/28/grimes-starts-new-artist-co-operative-label-eerie-organization-hear-the-first-release/ http://www.gorillavsbear.net/2015/08/28/grimes-starts-new-artist-co-operative-label-eerie-organization-hear-the-first-release/#comments Fri, 28 Aug 2015 14:05:24 +0000 Chris http://www.gorillavsbear.net/?p=351325 Read more »]]>

Grimes has started a new artist co-operative and record label called Eerie Organization, which will release her new album in Canada. First up, though: newcomer Nicole Dollanganger and her debut LP Natural Born Losers. Grimes says of the record: “It blew up my brain so hard that I literally started Eerie to fucking put it out because it’s a crime against humanity for this music not to be heard.” Grimes describes Nicole’s sound as “Hurt NIN sound design/ pain w Dolly Parton-esque witty profundity that sometimes gets super dark and contrasty to fluttery expressive cherub vocals…” Listen to first single “You’re So Cool” below:

premiere: Ryan Hemsworth casts an emo shadow over Skylar Spence’s “Can’t You See” http://www.gorillavsbear.net/2015/08/26/premiere-ryan-hemsworth-casts-an-emo-shadow-over-skylar-spences-cant-you-see/ http://www.gorillavsbear.net/2015/08/26/premiere-ryan-hemsworth-casts-an-emo-shadow-over-skylar-spences-cant-you-see/#comments Wed, 26 Aug 2015 15:00:31 +0000 Chris http://www.gorillavsbear.net/?p=351235 Read more »]]>

We’re big fans of Skylar Spence‘s disco anthem “Can’t You See“, a self-deprecating but still light-hearted and deliriously fun summer jam, taken from his endlessly danceable new record Prom King. Summer’s just about over though; enter the most emo producer in the game, Ryan Hemsworth, who takes the track to a very dark place for some serious soul-searching and self-doubt, as those lyrics (particularly the “I’m in love with my own reflection” refrain) take on some kind of devastating emotional weight. Heavy stuff from the bae whisperer and the artist fka Saint Pepsi. Prom King is out September 18 on Carpark.
