premiere: Dent May – Face Down in the Gutter of Your Love

DENT MAY FACE DOWN

Dent May returns with a charming new single, his first for Carpark Records: "Face Down in the Gutter of Your Love" is everything we love about vintage Dent, blending his smooth AOR-disco stylings and romantic yacht rock sentimentality with a darker, yearning side of his signature light-hearted wit, making for a wistful, heartfelt love song that would have been a perfect centerpiece on our latest mix...

survive rr7349

We're psyched to premiere the opening track from the brilliant forthcoming full-length from Austin analog synth wizards S U R V I V E, due this fall on Relapse Records. While we're hesitant to throw the word "epic" around haphazardly, it certainly applies to the group's thrilling, darkly gleaming, otherworldly synth odysseys, which are truly transportive and majestic (there's a reason half of the group was tapped to score the best supernatural alien adventure since the '80s, and they delivered an eerie instant classic)...

YOO_YOO_cover

Psyched to share the second stellar jam from Yoo-Yoo, a mysterious Swedish collective/group that features members of Korallreven, ORKID, Thanxxx, and various unnamed "friends and lovers". The group calls the glorious "Eye of the Eye" -- which I think samples both Snoop + 50 Cent (...
