premiere: stream Permit’s Vol. 1 EP

PERMIT VOL 1

Psyched to premiere the new EP from Bloomington's Permit, the new project from Jack Andrew and the prolific Drew Auscherman of Hoops. The duo makes blistering, super infectious, feel-good lo-fi garage-pop/punk rippers -- think “Thin Lizzy, but twice as fast”, in the band's own words -- that feel like fleeting, sub-2:00 bursts of hazy sunshine that never overstay their welcome...

listen to Burial’s Young Death / Nightmarket 12″

BURIAL YOUNG DEATH NIGHTMARKET 12

Burial's surprise Young Death / Nightmarket 12" is now available for purchase via Hyperdub (edit: it's already sold out, but you can still purchase digitally). After listening to questionable vinyl rips all weekend long, I can already promise that we will inevitably rank this thing way too high on our year-end list, but every new Burial release feels like such an event and inspires such an intense emotional/visceral reaction upon first listen that I think it's warranted. Listen to both tracks below:

premiere: stream DÆVA’s dreamy debut LP Beta Persei

BETA PERSEI

We briefly mentioned DÆVA's magical, lucid-dreamlike debut LP Beta Persei earlier this week, and now you can stream the record in all its softly shimmering, spectral glory below. Highly recommended for the lovelorn, fans of early Grimes, X-Files obsessives, and anyone lamenting the death of chillwave and/or witch house...

DÆVA – Dream

DAEVA

Here's a glittery, ethereal dream-pop gem from Brooklyn's Gigi Mead, aka DÆVA: "Dream" is the opening track from her beautifully vaporous, two-years-in-the-making, X-Files-inspired debut LP Beta Persei, which has provided a very welcome and chill (and even occasionally danceable) escapist vibe for us these past few nights. Beta Persei is out this week on limited glitter cassette via Furious Hooves:

premiere: watch DJ Taye’s “Burnin Ya Boa” video

DJ TAYE

We're psyched to premiere the beautifully shot, Desmond Penn-directed new visuals from one of the brightest young luminaries in footwork, Teklife's DJ Taye. With its elegantly chopped samples -- that tinkling, cascading piano and an almost mournful woodwind melody lend the song an unmistakably poignant vibe -- deftly woven into Taye's distinctive skittering drum and bass patterns, the soulful, DJ Manny-assisted "Burnin Ya Boa" is one of the highlights from the producer's very dope Move Out EP, out this week on Hyperdub...

premiere: Fear of Men share new song “Change Me”

FEAR OF MEN

Fear Of Men share a decidedly less gloomy alternate version of "Erase (Aubade)", one of the starkly emotional highlights from their beautiful Fall Forever LP, out now on Kanine. The group told us via email about the shimmering, relatively chipper (but still goosebump-inducing) "Change Me":

Ellie Herring x gorilla vs. bear takeover: the Librarian x Skeleton Hands

The Librarian_Skeleton Hands

The Librarian (now Black Shield) & Skeleton Hands are very best friends of mine and fellow Racecar pals. Both have killer records coming out next year, but for now “Slow” is the greatest combo of the two. “Slow” makes me want to be Alex Rogan in “The Last Starfighter.” -- Ellie Herring
