Skylar Spence x GvsB takeover: Braque – Maraude

BRAQUE MARAUDE

I just stumbled upon this record label called D.K.O. out of France, and they’ve got an impressive roster of house and disco enthusiasts. Braque’s EP, ’Maraude’, is short but sweet from top to bottom, and the title track sounds like something that could have been released on Crydamoure...

Skylar Spence x GvsB takeover: Roman à Clef – Bye/Gone

ABANDONWARE

This track is the centerpiece of (for my money) the best album of 2015. I heard the single, “Abandonware”, on the radio on the way to leave for our first ever leg of tour. It floored me instantly...

Skylar Spence x GvsB takeover: マザー・グース – 貿易風にさらされて

貿易風にさらされて / マザー・グース

I don’t have much to say about this one, but it’s a jam and it goes like twenty different places within its three and a half-minute timeframe. It might sound like something you’d expect to hear on an Ariel Pink record, but the album credits include almost a dozen pioneers of the Japanese City Pop scene...

Skylar Spence x GvsB takeover: SAINT PEPSI – Fall Harder (Early Version)

SAINT PEPSI FALL HARDER

I wrote this song one weekend while I was a student at Boston College, two months after I started the SAINT PEPSI project. I was initially planning to release this song under a side project, but my parents told me they thought it was the best song I’d ever written...

Skylar Spence x GvsB takeover: Monkey (demo)

SKYLAR SPENCE

I haven’t had much time to work on new tunes since I finished ‘Prom King’, mostly due to putting a band together and playing a bunch of shows this summer. Which was awesome! But I’ve had some time off and I’m just trying to have fun making music again...
