“I’M SO HAPPY TO SHARE THE FIRST SINGLE OFF OF “DEAR TOMMY” TODAY. GOING TO BE RELEASING A SINGLE A WEEK UNTIL THE ALBUM COMES OUT IN MARCH. I FUCKING LOVE THIS RECORD SO MUCH & I AM LITERALLY FOAMING AT THE MOUTH TO SHARE IT WITH YOU.” — Johnny Jewel
CHROMATICS unveil the shadowy, long-awaited first single from Dear Tommy. The record is due in March, and the label tells us that “Johnny will be putting out a single a week leading up to the album’s release“:
California dream-pop duo Bouquet unveils the fittingly understated and serene visuals for their gorgeous new single “Stacks on Stacks.” Directed by Jennifer Juniper Stratford, founder of “avant-garde television studio and analog media lab” Telefantasy Studios, who you may know from her work with John Maus + Ariel Pink. Bouquet’s excellent, limited In a Dream 10″ EP — mixed by 2015 Grammy winnerCole Marsden Greif-Neill — is out March 10 via Folktale Records. Recommended for lovers of Young Marble Giants, early Beach House, and dreamy, spectral lullabies. The group has a handful of west coast dates coming up; check those after the jump…
Chastity Belt star as the coolest, most jaded band in the world as they wander around Seattle’s Capitol Hill in search of a meaningful night, in this Bobby McHugh-directed video for the group’s new single and one of our favorite jams of the year so far, “Time to Go Home.” Instead, they get wasted, take a few selfies, dance around with some shirtless dudes in Macklemore masks(?), then go home together and pass out. Actually, it does all feel kind of meaningful. Chastity Belt’s very tight Time to Go Home LP is out on March 24 on Hardly Art.
