TRUST‘s excellent new full-length Joyland is out this week on Arts & Crafts, and to commemorate the occasion — like we’ve done in the past with Grimes, SHLOHMO, and a few others — we’re handing over the keys to TRUST mastermind Robert Alfons to post whatever the hell he wants all day long. So say hi to Robert, stick around for some amazing stuff you might not expect to see on this site (including an exclusive or two) and stay up on all of TRUST’s posts throughout the day right here.
As if we weren’t psyched enough about SOPHIE coming to TX next week for SXSW: get your synapses bent by the next level sounds + visuals from the mysterious London producer’s mind-melting, very out there live set for #JUSTJAM last night [Edit: video removed, but check one of the highlights from the set below]
Very psyched to introduce IDYLL, the new collaboration from Chicagoans Angelina Lucero + JoJo Yang. The duo’s spectral debut single finds Lucero’s devastating, lovelorn voice (hopefully you’re already familiar) hovering over Yang’s shadowy/sexy, beautifully restrained bass-heavy production, which ebbs and swells to hit hardest at all the right times. The haunting and very promising “Trouble” is taken from IDYLL’s debut release 1, out soon.
