SECRET KNIVES

Secret Knives is Ash Smith from Wellington, who also plays bass in Over The Atlantic and is touring with the Shocking Pinks right now. His album "Affection" is a MUST-download from Bandcamp, and his bi-annual live shows are insane if you can ever catch one...

Yumi Zouma x Gorilla vs. Bear takeover: Wet Wings

WET WINGS FEEEEL IT

Wet Wings were a great band from Christchurch. Lucy and Darian created a really special world in their music, there really wasn't anything like it in New Zealand at the time. It was actually the first time I heard about Gorilla Vs Bear, when Chris posted about their first EP 'Skin To Soil' in 2010...

Yumi Zouma x Gorilla vs. Bear takeover: Lontalius

LONTALIUS COMFORTABLE

Eddie is from Wellington, the capital of New Zealand. I wish I had a fraction of the talent that he has, his songs legitimately terrify me and make wonder what the point is to anything. He just signed a record deal and released the best video of the year, and is starting to play overseas heaps now that he's finished school...

Yumi Zouma x Gorilla vs. Bear takeover: Aldous Harding

ALDOUS HARDING

I saw Aldous Harding play this song live a couple of months back and I was completely and utterly spellbound. She hails from Lyttelton, a port town about a half hour away from where I live. Her music is haunting, her voice is beautiful and her wit is sharp -- I fell in love at first listen...

YUMI ZOUMA EP II

Yumi Zouma is set to drop a limited new 12" that collects all the New Zealand group's hits — including both of their stellar, now-sold-out EPs, along with that beautiful Air France collab/cover, and the previously unreleased "Right, Off the Bridge" — on one very fancy deluxe vinyl package (pictured above). The first 500 records come on translucent vinyl with "blue haze" and a colored silkscreen wrap; listen to the silky new jam below and pre-order the 12" here. Full tracklist after the jump. Catch the Yumis live (along with Korallreven, Chad Valley, Lemonade, Cuushe, and more) at Cascine's 5YR Anniversary party on September 17 at Brooklyn's Wythe Hotel.

listen to Cascine’s The First Five Years mixtape (curated by us)

CASCINE 5YR

As we continue to celebrate the 5th anniversary of one our favorite labels in the world, we've lovingly and carefully curated this perfect (in our opinion), hour-long Cascine 5YR mixtape, made up of some of our personal favorite tracks from the label's deep and consistently stellar catalog. Featuring classics from Korallreven, Yumi Zouma, Keep Shelly in Athens, Lemonade, Airbird & Napolian + much more, as well as previously unreleased tracks from Jensen Sportag, Boat Club + Chad Valley, it's a beautiful reminder of just how much great stuff these guys have helped put out into the world over the past 5 years. You'll be able to cop the tape in physical form as part of Cascine's limited 5YR pack (along with a tee and a new Yumi Zouma 12") soon, or right now with tickets to Cascine's 5YR party next month at Brookyn's Wythe Hotel. Listen to the mixtape below exclusively on Spotify, and check the full tracklist after the jump...

JAMIE XX IN COLOUR LIVE

Still basking in the afterglow of both amazing, sold-out Gorilla vs. Bear V shows in Dallas + Austin, and one the most memorable and magical weekends of our lives. Massive thanks to Jamie xx, Lower Dens, Tei Shi, Bop English, Yumi Zouma, Prince Innocence, DJ Sober, and of course, everyone at the Granada, the Mohawk, and Transmission for making it happen. Can't wait to do it again next year. Live shots by the great Bill Ellison + more polaroids after the jump...
