This one’s been intermittently bouncing around our head for months thanks to SOPHIE‘s tripped-out, mind-warping live sets and that one Diplo mix from a few months back, and now the London producer’s long-awaited, impossibly infectious new single is officially here: the Lemonade / Hard 12″ is out digitally + on limited edition vinyl on August 4 via Numbers. Don’t miss SOPHIE’s first-ever Dallas show at GvsB IV on September 12, along with Panda Bear, Ejecta, Doss, and Blues Control. Grab your tickets here while you’re still on that sugar high.

Thanks to Hipinion for somehow brokering the liberation of this painfully short (alleged) preview of Lewis‘ unheard, only recently discovered second album, Romantic Times, released just two years after L’Amour to zero fanfare. This one’s already commanding bids of over $1600 on ebay with almost 4 days left to go. The legend gets deeper / more ridiculous…
Thanks to our friends DIANA for the heads up on London, Ontario, analog dream-pop duo You’ll Never Get To Heaven, and the group’s entrancing and elegant new EP, Adorn. Listen to the record’s gorgeous title track, and the every-bit-as-lovely opener “Caught In Time, So Far Away“, which sounds a bit like Chromatics at their most haunting and ethereal, below. Adorn was originally self-released by YNGTH earlier this year on cassette, and will get new life on limited 12″ later this summer via Montreal label Psychic Handshake (edit: get it here); listen to EP in its entirety (including a dreamy Eno cover) here.
