Another stellar new song from Arlington, TX’s own Jana Hunter + her band Lower Dens: the brooding, Ariel Rechtshaid-co-produced “Ondine” is taken from one of our favorite records of 2015 so far, Escape From Evil, out later this month on Ribbon Music. Lower Dens will tour North America this spring/summer; check those dates here.
GABI‘s beautiful, otherworldly single “Fleece” is #blessed with a thick, bass-heavy club mix by Autre Ne Veut. Just as alien and trance-inducing as the original, but with ANV’s heavy pop sensibilities elevating that “chorus” into a real life-affirming, clouds-parting moment. Video by Serena Forghieri. See ANV’s visceral/emotion-wrecking live show next week at our SXSW party.
London’s Kero Kero Bonito drop their sugary, insanely catchy new single: an evisceration of narcissistic selfie/instagram culture, or an empowering pro-selfie anthem? Probably both. Grab it here, and catch KKB next Thursday at our official SXSW showcase.
“This song was never finished. its a demo from ~ the lost album ~, recorded early 2013. i lost the ableton file, so its not mixed or mastered. i tried to doctor the mp3 into a listenable state, but it was poorly recorded in the first place and never meant to be heard by anyone, so its a bit of a mess haha.” — Grimes
Grimes just being modest, this sounds really great to us, and hopefully “REALiTi” isn’t the last we hear of the ‘lost album.’
