GRIMES d'EON DARK BLOOM

Here's an otherwordly new jam from Claire Boucher, aka Grimes, taken from Dark Bloom, Boucher's forthcoming split 12" EP with her Montreal homie d'Eon.

mp3: Holy Other – “Touch”

With U

Here's a new one from Manchester producer/apparition Holy Other, taken from his forthcoming With U 12" EP. "Touch" is a spectral slow jam that's a bit sexier and not quite as suffocatingly sad as last year's devastating "Yr Love" (also on the EP), but still feels haunted by the same feelings of yearning and regret:

The group's sexy smooth "beach-House" vibes have been described by Pitchfork as "downtempo, Balearic-tinged sounds that sound like what would happen if someone tried to remake Air's Moon Safari to correspond with the present day's fashions...
