One of our favorite songs of 2014 so far, which Allie X apparently “sort of just vomited out in one day,” gets a video, directed and edited by Jungle George. Watch + download the track for free below:

Before Leanne Macomber was making sparkling, romantic synth-pop with Joel Ford as Ejecta, she made hauntingly intimate, slightly less sparkling, but also very romantic dream-pop in beloved Denton, TX duo Fight Bite. Today Leany sent over her new Swissex Mixtape, which is “neither a mix nor a tape”, but a lovely collection of stripped-down versions of previously released Fight Bite tracks, as well as “sketches past present and future.” So, not technically a new Fight Bite release, but very dreamy and emotional all the same. Listen to the tape in its entirety below, then pay whatever you’d like to download it here.

“Perth fantasy windsurfer” Eleventeen Eston drops his debut Delta Horizon cassette, sounding “like the soundtrack to some mythically faded new wave instructional hang gliding video” (an aside: Britt from Not Not Fun writes the best album bios around). Serious Rangers / Ariel Pink weather channel soft-psych vibes to be found here, which I guess we’ve missed more than we knew in this post-Alt Zones landscape :/ Video directed by Benjamin Shearn. Delta Horizon is limited to 100 copies, out this week on NNF.

Hugo Manuel aka Chad Valley drops a balmy tropical re-work of Lusine‘s “Two Dots” under his tailor-made-for-summer-nights Turks & Caicos side project, which you might recall from this very dreamy Kate Bush flip. Catch Mr. Valley + Lusine on next month’s Cascine & Friends summer tour along with Yumi Zouma, Lemonade, + more.
