Hinds continue to make the best videos for $0: this one, for the Madrid group’s breezy grower of a new single “Chili Town” — taken from their new Very Best of Hinds So Far EP — was directed by the band + Alex Delucas. Hinds are coming back to the USA for a massive tour starting next month (no TX shows, but it’s cool); check all of those dates here.

Last month, Liz Harris of Grouper announced the debut LP from her “pop group” Helen, and unveiled the record’s stellar lead single “Motorcycle“, a track that we said at the time maintained “all the beautiful, delicate haze of a Dragging a Dead Deer Up a Hill-era Grouper song, before erupting into a glorious, blown-out fuzz-pop jam.” Today the band unveils another gorgeous blown-out track from the record, and while not a Hole cover, “Violet” is an exquisitely explosive missive, a dreamy lullaby buried in embers and ash, until the din starts to disintegrate over the last minute or so, leaving only Harris’ inimitable ghostly voice in its wake. the original faces is out September 4 on Kranky.
As we continue to celebrate the 5th anniversary of one our favorite labels in the world, we’ve lovingly and carefully curated this perfect (in our opinion), hour-long Cascine 5YR mixtape, made up of some of our personal favorite tracks from the label’s deep and consistently stellar catalog. Featuring classics from Korallreven, Yumi Zouma, Keep Shelly in Athens, Lemonade, Airbird & Napolian + much more, as well as previously unreleased tracks from Jensen Sportag, Boat Club + Chad Valley, it’s a beautiful reminder of just how much great stuff these guys have helped put out into the world over the past 5 years. You’ll be able to cop the tape in physical form as part of Cascine’s limited 5YR pack (along with a tee and a new Yumi Zouma 12″) soon, or right now with tickets to Cascine’s 5YR party next month at Brookyn’s Wythe Hotel. Listen to the mixtape below exclusively on Spotify, and check the full tracklist after the jump…
