Presenting our favorite songs of 2018*...
Presenting the list of our favorite releases from an overwhelming year, posted up way too soon like we always do:
Presenting our new monthly mix for November 2018, featuring some of the best tracks we heard over the past month, and a few highlights from October, since there was technically no monthly mix last month (although there was this sweet Halloween mix). This month's mix features new music from CHROMATICS, Otha, Mr Twin Sister, Boy Harsher, Cindy Lee + more. Listen below:
Presenting our new monthly mix for September 2018, featuring some of the best tracks we heard over the past month. This month's mix, which features new music from Yaeji, Men I Trust, Grimes, the Samps, Thom Yorke, Helena Deland + more, is extra good in an attempt to atone for my blatant disregard for the rich tradition of the GvsB monthly mix last month, in which I irresponsibly posted no mix. Listen below:
Presenting our new monthly mix for July 2018, featuring some of the best new tracks we heard over the past month, from Free Love, Helena Deland, Okay Kaya, Tirzah, Channel Tres, SALES, Kate Teague + more:
Presenting the third installment in our series of annual modern yacht rock summer mixtapes: As always, we’re expanding the yacht rock universe here to include more modern sounds inspired by those classic easy listening FM-gold guilty pleasures of the late '70s and early '80s, while occasionally veering off into balearica, pillowy soft funk, sophisti-pop, long-lost obscurities, exotica, and darker forms of hypnogogia.

Presenting our new monthly mix for June 2018, featuring some of the best new tracks we heard over the past month, from Hana Vu, Chromatics, Dilly Dally, Kornél Kovács, Mr Twin Sister, Hater + more:
We're not quite halfway through 2018, but here's our annual recap of the albums + songs of the first half of the year anyway. I’ve excluded any records that we’ve released on our new label Luminelle Recordings; otherwise, the stellar new ones from Helena Deland, Anemone, and Hana Vu would have all figured prominently into both of these lists. Also, I guess a few of these aren’t officially out yet. Sorry!
Presenting our new monthly mix for May 2018, featuring some of the best new tracks we heard over the past month, from CHROMATICS, Tirzah, Otha, Playboi Carti, Beach House, Bella Boo + more. Thanks JJ for the cover image:
