Tei Shi x Gorilla vs. Bear takeover: Sean Nicholas Savage – The Rat

SEAN NICHOLAS SAVAGE

I think I might be one of Sean’s biggest fans. I think he is so great in such an indescribable way. I played a show with him in Montreal last year and that was my first time seeing him...it was unlike any live experience I’ve had before, his performance feels like a Lynchian dream...

mp3 premiere: Blue Hawaii – Get Happy / Get Happier

BLUE HAWAII // GET HAPPY

(๑ ऀืົཽ₍₍ළ₎₎ ऀืົཽ)✧ 'Get Happy' is a song we recorded one day in January 2014 but laid to rest as we got lost in the commotion of touring and moving to separate cities. As the year progressed, we found our live show intensify but still had all these softer recordings which would never be released. Hence we present Get Happy / Get Happier, where we explore both sides: the original demo and a fun, double-time edit made one day in August.
-- Blue Hawaii

Montreal duo Blue Hawaii drop a beautifully conflicted new jam/mantra ahead of their CMJ dates: Listen to + download the hypnotic "Get Happy", along with its more frantic, double-time counterpart, below. Raph and Agor bring their amazing live show to NYC this week for CMJ, check those dates after the jump...
