premiere: S U R V I V E – A.H.B.

survive rr7349

We're psyched to premiere the opening track from the brilliant forthcoming full-length from Austin analog synth wizards S U R V I V E, due this fall on Relapse Records. While we're hesitant to throw the word "epic" around haphazardly, it certainly applies to the group's thrilling, darkly gleaming, otherworldly synth odysseys, which are truly transportive and majestic (there's a reason half of the group was tapped to score the best supernatural alien adventure since the '80s, and they delivered an eerie instant classic)...

Drugdealer – Suddenly (feat. Weyes Blood)

SUDDENLY

Drugdealer is the new project (and latest illicit substance-related moniker) from the man behind Run DMT/Salvia Plath/the Doobie Sisters/Silk Rhodes, Mike Collins. His excellent, Ariel Pink-produced new album The End of Comedy is due September 9th on Weird World, and lead single "Suddenly", which features the lovely vocals of Natalie Mering aka Weyes Blood, is a classic '70s singer/songwriter piano joint replete with heavy Tapestry vibes and a killer, all too fleeting sax riff...

listen to the Stranger Things main theme by members of Austin band S U R V I V E

STRANGER THINGS VHS JACKET

Like seemingly everyone else on the internet, we're currently obsessed with the new Spielberg-meets-Stephen King '80s nostalgia trip / Netflix original series Stranger Things. One of the elements that makes the show so great is the perfectly eerie atmospheric score, which was created by Kyle Dixon + Michael Stein of Austin band S U R V I V E. Their score elicits the same sense of wonder and dread as John Carpenter's classic film scores, Tangerine Dream's best horror scores, and more recent brilliant throwback scores from Disasterpeace (It Follows) and Cliff Martinez. Listen to the Stranger Themes main theme -- along with an awesome extended version that someone upped to youtube -- below, and look out for a new S U R V I V E record coming soon on Relapse (in the meantime, you can hear a recent track from the group here):

GvsB Modern Yacht Rock // Summer 2016 Mixtape

GvsB YACHT ROCK 2016 MIXTAPE

With the recent return of Sirius XM's glorious seasonal yacht rock channel, we were inspired to compile this mixtape of modern soft rock, sophistipop, vaporwave, balearic pop, cosmic funk, and smooth hypnogogic jams from the past decade or so that would fit seamlessly in the station's rotation, or alongside the legends Fleetwood Mac, Loggins & Messina, Steely Dan, Hall & Oates, Toto, et al. on any yacht rock playlist. Shimmering and soothing summer-ready FM radio vibes for the weekend, with a nod to classic yacht rock's darker and weirder undertones. Listen/download + check the full tracklist below:

video premiere: Zen Mantra – Remember You At All

ZEN MANTRA REMEMBER YOU AT ALL

You might recognize "Remember You At All" as one of the dreamiest (and best) tracks on the stellar new Yumi Zouma record Yoncalla, but it was originally written by the group's Sam Perry for his solo project Zen Mantra. The Zen Mantra version is decidedly more psychedelic and warped, and the ghostly, The Fog-inspired new video, directed by Ben Dodd, Frances Carter, Sam Perry, & Lily McRae, perfectly complements the song's eerie, distant vibe. Sam tells us about the concept for the vid:

Alex Rose – Grandmothers / Coattails

ALEX ROSE

Psyched to introduce the lovely debut release from Austin's Alex Rose: "Grandmothers" is a disarmingly beautiful and bittersweet gem that Alex says is "a rumination on the nonĀ­linear and linear aspects of time," with vivid lyrics that manage to feel both surreal and very sincere and intimate, while the modest, hushed folk of the virtual flip-side "Coattails" is a heartfelt lament/lullaby for an ending relationship...
