Budding young LA pop-star Banks drops her warmest, most engaging track yet in the lovely / aptly-named “Warm Water,” a romantic summer night love song in which her soulful, starry-eyed come-ons drift along that balmy, subtly enveloping beat from UK producer Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs. “Warm Water” is out May 27 on London’s Good Years.
The already stellar 2013 Chaos in Tejas lineup got even better yesterday with the addition of DIIV, Antwon, Roc Marciano, and a lot more, and we’re to excited to announce the second amazing bill that we’re co-presenting with the fest: Andy Stott, Total Control, Vulgar Fashion, and more at Holy Mountain on Saturday, June 1. We’ve got 5 pairs of tickets to give away for this one courtesy of the fest; just leave your name in the comments if you’d like to go, and we’ll pick the winners the week before the show. You can also buy tickets for this one here while they last.

We’re psyched to announce that we’ve teamed up with our friends at Austin’s Chaos in Tejas to help present a couple of amazing shows at this year’s fest, starting with one of our favorite / most important artists in the history of this site, Portland’s Grouper, along with Jessica Pratt and Silent Land Time Machine on May 31 at the beautiful Central Presbyterian Church in downtown Austin. We have 5 pairs of tickets to give away for this one: just let us know who you’re most excited to see at the fest in the comments below or on facebook, and we’ll pick the winners the week of the show.
The entire Chaos lineup is beyond stacked, as you can see here. Another show announcement coming soon; in the meantime you can buy tickets for this show here for only $12 while they’re still available, or grab a 4-day wristband that gets you into all of the Chaos in Tejas shows here.
DIANA‘s beautiful, basically flawless soft-focus dance-pop dream “Born Again” finally gets some appropriate visuals, directed by Geoffrey Pugen, and starring Carmen Elle and other assorted psychedelic jungle dwellers. In other exciting news, DIANA‘s exceedingly lovely and timeless self-titled debut — without question one of the year’s best — is out August 20 on Jagjaguwar + on Paper Bag Records in Canada.
