premiere: hear a bonus track from NV’s Binasu LP
Russian experimental musician Kate Shilonosova aka NV released one of the most pleasant surprises (and one of our favorite records) of last year, in the gloriously playful and adventurous Binasu. Today, she shares the aptly titled “DE 1988“, a previously unreleased bonus track that appears on the Japanese version of the record.

The Japanese-only release of Binasu is out now on Plancha, and also features a track with Angel Deradoorian. Grab both bonus tracks here, and if you missed NV’s charming “Kata” vid, check that here. You can also pre-order Binasu on vinyl here.
