Joanne Robertson – HEAT


A fragile, quietly devastating new track from Dean Blunt collaborator Joanne Robertson, out this summer on World Music, the new imprint started by Blunt & Inga Copeland:

new Dean Blunt – “Papi”


Here's the romantic, Pink Floyd-sampling first single from Dean Blunt's new LP The Redeemer, out May 1 on Hippos in Tanks / World Music. Just as bizarre and heartbreaking as Blunt's devastating "The Narcissist," though in very different ways...

premiere: SLEEP ∞ OVER – “Rooftop” + “I Want To Be Alone”


We're extremely psyched to share the premiere of the beautiful new single from Austin's Stefanie Franciotti, aka Sleep ∞ Over. A-side "Rooftop" opens with an ominous plinking and drifts off into an enchanting, otherworldly lullaby fit for the darkest and most surreal Disney (or Lynch) dreamscapes, while the b-side is a devastating cover of Vashti Bunyan's 1965 heartbreaker "I Want to Be Alone...

mp3 premiere: d’Eon – “Transparency pt. II”


Here's another smooth R&B track from Montreal composer/singer d'Eon's forthcoming LP, out next week on Hippos in Tanks. The frustrated lover's plea "Transparency Pt.

video premiere: Grimes – “Vanessa” + d’Eon – “Transparency”


Two new videos from like-minded Montreal homies Grimes + d'Eon, for songs taken from their new split 12", Darkbloom. Grimes gets down in her clip for "Vanessa," then she eats d'Eon's hair in his awesomely bizarre vid for '90s-R&B-leaning smooth jam "Transparency...

mp3: Grimes – “Vanessa”


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. The soaring "Vanessa" represents the bolder, slightly more polished version of Grimes' cosmic "space-station pop" that wowed just about everyone who caught one of her transportive sets at SXSW earlier this month...

Sleep ∞ Over – “Casual Diamond”


In the time since we released Sleep ∞ Over's transcendent Outer Limits 7" single last Spring on Forest Family, two of the band's three members left to form a new group, leaving the status of the project's future somewhat vague for a minute there...
