brijean walkie talkie

Our intro to Bay Area "backroom disco" duo Brijean -- the project of percussionist Brijean Murphy, who has worked with GvsB favs Toro Y Moi, U.S. Girls, and Poolside, among others -- came via the shimmery, sensuous single "Show and Tell", which sounds a bit like Stereolab gone full-on dreamy disco-pop, Brijean's silky vocals wafting over an infectious tropical groove that feels destined to soundtrack countless pool parties and topdown twilight drives up the coast...

album premiere: listen to Jib Kidder’s dreamlike Teaspoon to the Ocean

TEASPOON to the OCEAN

We're psyched to debut the expansive, poignant new LP from Jib Kidder (née Sean Schuster-Craig), A Teaspoon to the Ocean. Schuster-Craig covers much varied and wonderfully strange ground over the album's 11 tracks, creating a vivid, dreamlike landscape -- see the complementary animations below -- best navigated while reading his very personal and insightful self-written album bio, which covers everything from his early experiences with collage/sampling, to his time spent at the University of Michigan with Julia Holter (who appears on the lovely, lilting acid-country jam "Appetites") and Laurel Halo, to his "dark years", and the intense relationship/fascination with dreams that informs his unique musical style...
