listen to TOPS’ Taking Off Your Makeup FFF Fest mix

TOPS x FFF MIX

Montreal's TOPS will descend upon Texas this fall for a handful of shows in November, including a stop in Dallas on the 5th before heading down to Austin for this year's insane Fun Fun Fun Fest and a very rad FFF Nites show (that we'll be able to share details for soon). In anticipation of their FFF show, the group put together a sweet little mix featuring some jams they're listening to at the moment, featuring Altered Images, Annie Lennox, Q Lazzarus, Strawberry Switchblade, and more. Listen below + check the full trackslist and the band's reason for including each track after the jump...

JAMIE XX IN COLOUR LIVE

Still basking in the afterglow of both amazing, sold-out Gorilla vs. Bear V shows in Dallas + Austin, and one the most memorable and magical weekends of our lives. Massive thanks to Jamie xx, Lower Dens, Tei Shi, Bop English, Yumi Zouma, Prince Innocence, DJ Sober, and of course, everyone at the Granada, the Mohawk, and Transmission for making it happen. Can't wait to do it again next year. Live shots by the great Bill Ellison + more polaroids after the jump...

listen to the official Gorilla vs. Bear V mixtape by DJ Sober

GvsB V x SOBER FINAL

Gorilla vs. Bear V goes down next week here in TX, and for the fifth year in a row, Dallas' own DJ Sober (who will be DJ'ing between sets all night at both GvsB shows) has hooked up the official mix to get us even more psyched for the occasion. This year's tape — featuring all of the acts playing this year's sold-out shows (Jamie xx, Lower Dens, Tei Shi, Bop English, Yumi Zouma + Prince Innocence), a couple GvsB alums (Panda Bear, Empress of), and a bunch of other stuff we're into at the moment — is arguably the best one yet, and is essentially an hour-long glitter-wavy summer jam. Listen/download below, check the tracklist after the jump, and look for this one to potentially make its way to cassette at some point in the near future...
