video premiere: Penelope Trappes – CONNECTOR

PENELOPE TRAPPES CONNECTOR

We're psyched to premiere the visuals for "Connector", the darkly mesmeric new single from Penelope Trappes' forthcoming album Penelope Two, due next week on Fabric's Houndstooth label. In tandem, the song and its striking accompanying visuals -- which were directed by Penelope with Agnes Haus, and are intended to be an "isolating and direct personification of Penelope's search to bring light into the dark and emotional period of her own life" -- elicit a hauntingly spectral Under the Skin vibe, with harrowing but hopeful themes of rebirth/renewal, beautifully blurring the lines between eerie conjuring and meditative lullaby...

premiere: Anna St. Louis – Desert

anna st louis

Anna St. Louis shares another stunning new track from her proper debut full-length If Only There Was a River, coming next month. The windswept, vividly cinematic "Desert" evokes wide open spaces and intense longing, and the song's heartbreakingly lonely sentiment -- "and the fire went out long ago, but still i pretend that you’re coming home" -- would resonate just as devastatingly if it were soundtracking a slow-burning scene in a picturesque western flick or emanating from a jukebox through the smoke across a seedy dive bar...

Brooklyn's Erika Spring (of Au Revoir Simone and Nice As Fuck fame) debuts a propulsive track from her new solo EP Scars, coming next month on Cascine. "This song is a play on words, asking the listener to adjust their fixed view of the universe," says Spring about the dynamically driving and warped (Spring's crystalline vocals notwithstanding) synth-pop jam "Less", adding, "It's also our love letter to the slightly out of tune Korg Polysix + (Spring's co-writer and musical partner) Homer Steinweiss' minimal, hypnotic drums...

Rina Mushonga 4qrtrs

Dutch-Zimbabwean artist Rina Mushonga graces us with the premiere of her new video for her infectiously bright and exhilarating Afro-electro-pop club jam "4qrtrs". Mushonga says that the Gugi van der Velden-directed video is "is comprised mainly of 'home-made' self shot footage in Zimbabwe" -- shot mostly on her iPhone and a cheap handheld camcorder -- "combined with vibrant graphic animation"...

video premiere: Tōth – Copilot

COPILOT

We're honored to debut the achingly beautiful new song and video from Brooklyn songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Alex Toth, aka Tōth. Directed & shot by Jake Saner, the video is an intensely surreal and haunting visual intepretation of Tōth's stunning new single "Copilot", in which chilling, alternately lush/windswept sonics ebb and flow around the heartbreakingly bittersweet lyrical refrain, "just admit you’re a butterfly / you were just waiting for your wings to dry...
