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:

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...

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:
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...
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":
If you saw me play this year chances are super high that I played a Gilligan Moss song. Recently I asked my grandmother if she felt older in her mind or just her body as she aged. She told me only her body, that her mind was still full of energy. The end of this video reminds me of her. “Choreograph” makes me want to be Bertie in “Swiss Family Robinson,” the 1960 version. -- Ellie Herring
Many years ago my Mom gave me a bunch of her old records & this was by far the best of them. I get that this is a pretty popular one, but I grew up with 60s rock around me. Listening to Jimmy Bo Horne was such an experience! And one that stuck with me. “Dance Across The Floor” makes me want to be artistic roller skater Terry Barkley in “Roller Boogie.” -- Ellie Herring
