"It can be difficult to connect to Parker’s idea of pop music. “Borderline” is less looking at a lava lamp and more looking at an Instagram of a lava lamp." - Pitchfork Find their review of "Borderline" here: https://bit.ly/2JVfDbB

Sabre said: “I wrote 'Drifting' to numerous different visuals that I was inspired by from Kendrick Lamar's Kahlil Joseph documentary through to La Haine. That's why it's has this cinematic feel within the music before we even created the film. "I was brought up in Ireland and Irish cinema has always grabbed me, so we wanted to carry that on through and make sure it was captured as beautifully as possible. The aim is to tell as many different untold Irish stories within a grander film. 'Drifting' is scene one.”

Simon says this song is an example of "how a collaboration works even when you're not aware of it occurring." He traveled to South Africa in February 1985 and recorded with a variety of local musicians. One of these sessions was with an accordion player named Forere Motloheloa, who played on the song "The Boy in the Bubble." These sessions produced a drum sound that Simon liked, which he described in the 2012 Graceland reissue: "The drums were kind of a traveling rhythm in country music - I'm a big Sun Records fan, and early-'50s, mid-'50s Sun Records you hear that beat a lot, like a fast, Johnny Cash type of rhythm."

Teen Violence
by LUH
(4 plays) | (0 fans)

Yesterday, LUH shared Teen Violence an-unreleased Stomper,originally from the LHWYB album sessions. From LUH: "It was left off the album for a few reasons, simply that an extra 4 minutes would bump us off one piece of wax and a double vinyl seemed a little excessive for this visceral work. But crucially we were not happy with how the song had been produced, the version we left the LA sessions with fell short of the envisioned impact. Taking it off the album provided an opportunity to take it back into the studio to re-work it into the juggernaut you can hear today. I recommend to listen to it LOUD, preferably on headphones whilst stomping thru dirt ridden streets."

Sweet Sweet Midnight
by stef chura
(46 plays) | (1 fan)

""Sweet Sweet Midnight," which could be interpreted as the record's title track, is an epic indie-rock duet between Chura and Toledo, reflecting on the loss of Chura's friend. Between Chura and Toledo's cathartic, grief-ridden shouts, the track flaunts the leveled-up songwriting and aesthetics that are saturated throughout the record."
