premiere: stream Permit’s Vol. 1 EP

PERMIT VOL 1

Psyched to premiere the new EP from Bloomington's Permit, the new project from Jack Andrew and the prolific Drew Auscherman of Hoops. The duo makes blistering, super infectious, feel-good lo-fi garage-pop/punk rippers -- think “Thin Lizzy, but twice as fast”, in the band's own words -- that feel like fleeting, sub-2:00 bursts of hazy sunshine that never overstay their welcome...

premiere: stream DÆVA’s dreamy debut LP Beta Persei

BETA PERSEI

We briefly mentioned DÆVA's magical, lucid-dreamlike debut LP Beta Persei earlier this week, and now you can stream the record in all its softly shimmering, spectral glory below. Highly recommended for the lovelorn, fans of early Grimes, X-Files obsessives, and anyone lamenting the death of chillwave and/or witch house...

premiere: watch DJ Taye’s “Burnin Ya Boa” video

DJ TAYE

We're psyched to premiere the beautifully shot, Desmond Penn-directed new visuals from one of the brightest young luminaries in footwork, Teklife's DJ Taye. With its elegantly chopped samples -- that tinkling, cascading piano and an almost mournful woodwind melody lend the song an unmistakably poignant vibe -- deftly woven into Taye's distinctive skittering drum and bass patterns, the soulful, DJ Manny-assisted "Burnin Ya Boa" is one of the highlights from the producer's very dope Move Out EP, out this week on Hyperdub...

premiere: Fear of Men share new song “Change Me”

FEAR OF MEN

Fear Of Men share a decidedly less gloomy alternate version of "Erase (Aubade)", one of the starkly emotional highlights from their beautiful Fall Forever LP, out now on Kanine. The group told us via email about the shimmering, relatively chipper (but still goosebump-inducing) "Change Me":

video premiere: BOYBOY – Vices

BOYBOY VICES

If you haven't been paying attention, anonymous LA-via-New Zealand artist BOYBOY is currently responsible for four of the most infectiously playful and charming indie-pop jams to be released this year (including the lowkey perfect "Boy" + "None of Your Love", two of our favorite tracks of 2016)...

LAURE DREAMS

Toulouse, France chanteuse Laure Briard shares the picturesque visuals for her new psych-pop reverie "Dreams", taken from the forthcoming follow-up to her lovely Sur La Piste de Danse LP that dropped this summer...

video premiere: Zebra Katz – Hello Hi

ZK

It's already been established that Zebra Katz makes the best videos, and the striking visuals for the rapper's sensual and menacing new single "Hello Hi" -- shot inside fashion designer Rick Owens' lavish Palais Bourbon (which ZK tells us was "like a dream come true") -- are another impossibly stylish, hypnotically immersive entry in his catalog...

video premiere: Newman Wolf – Computer

NEWMAN WOLF COMPUTER

Newman Wolf shares a lovingly voyeuristic (and only occasionally creepy) view of his hometown of Los Angeles, made up of 700 black and white still photos, shot + directed by Ezra Ewen, and edited by Jerome Potter. “Computer” is taken from Wolf's debut LP Please Keep Talking, out November 11th on Body High.

premiere: Queen of Swords – Rise Instead

QUEEN OF SWORDS

Queen of Swords is the new project from Aerin Fogel, formerly of the awesome and severely under-appreciated early 2010's "cave pop" duo the Bitters, who dropped a few legit gems on labels like Captured Tracks + Mexican Summer...

premiere: Ellie Herring signs to Driftless, shares first single from new What a Joy EP

WHAT A JOY

Lexington, Kentucky producer Ellie Herring never makes the same move twice. Whether this constant state of flux is deliberate or simply the function of an inherent adventurous/restless streak (I suspect it's the latter), Herring's shapeshifting fluidity and apparent perpetual motion have made her one of the most exciting and versatile young dance music producers around...
