I See You
by The Horrors
(115 plays) | (1 fan)

It’s the band’s first album since 2011’s Skying, and as frontman Faris Badwan told NME, “This is the album I’ve been most excited about releasing. I think it would be misleading to say it’s got more guitars or more synths, because half the time the guitars sound like synths anyway. Is it fair to say there’s more of everything?” The band just debuted a song from Luminous (notably not a single, which isn’t surprising as it’s seven and a half minutes long) on Zane Lowe’s BBC 1 radio show. The epic “I See You” opens as an unusually clearheaded and dance-y track for the Horrors, with a lilting Britpoppy melody, but all that gives way to spectral, deeply tripped-out second half worthy of Spiritualized or early Deerhunter. https://bit.ly/31UDQWK Support the artist here! www.thehorrors.co.uk/

There Goes The Neighborhood
by Tomo Nakayama
(17 plays) | (0 fans)

Of this track, local Seattle musician Tomo Nakayama says: "Though it's a song about gentrification and the rapidly changing landscape of our city, at its heart it's a love letter of sorts to Seattle and our arts community. Zack Bolotin from Porchlight Coffee&Records directed this beautiful video which we made remotely. I hope we can all rally together when the time comes to help all of the small businesses that have suffered as a result of the pandemic. " https://tomomusic.bandcamp.com/

Rabbit Hole
by Cherry Glazerr
(27 plays) | (0 fans)

“‘Rabbit Hole’ is about clawing back my identity,” Creevy says in a press release. “I often find myself acting a certain way to get someone else’s approval. Then it’s hard for me to find myself again. That’s what I was meditating on with this song.” http://www.undertheradarmag.com/news/cherry_glazerr_share_new_song_rabbit_hole

Here is what The Avalanches had to say about this song: "Sometimes we receive a message. Telling us our music has been there; through dark times, loneliness, loss. There are no words to express how moving or profound this connection with you is. Because the music was born out of such moments itself, and so it is felt, by those with open hearts, on the same wavelength it was first created. Morse Code beamed and received by hearts and hearts alike. Our new record is about such journeys, from darkness to light. About life after (all kinds of) death. About the transcendent nature of music itself. Every voice ever played on the radio over the last 100 years now exists in the stars; the transmissions of these singers are forever floating around out there, lost in the cosmos, endless travelling. Tonight Smokey Robinson duets with Dev Hynes and the Roches. Those spirits are out there. We are each a tune, floating in space. And this one’s for you." https://pitchfork.com/news/the-avalanches-and-blood-orange-share-new-song-we-will-always-love-you-listenandnbsp/

Mitski recently revealed she’ll be creating the original soundtrack for a new graphic novel due out this March - "There’s no word on how the soundtrack might sound, but the book is described as “an innovative new science-fiction series… that delves into complex questions on science, faith and mankind’s need to believe in something bigger than itself” Sounds fitting for these times... https://www.nme.com/news/music/mitski-to-create-soundtrack-for-graphic-novel-this-is-where-we-fall-2804837

Road of the Lonely Ones
by Madlib & Four Tet
(26 plays) | (0 fans)

Madlib is set to release his new album "Sound Ancestors" (which includes this single) this month via Madlib Invazion. Of the album’s creation, Four Tet explained, “I was listening to some of [Madlib’s] new beats and studio sessions when I had the idea that it would be great to hear some of these ideas made into a Madlib solo album.” He added, “I put this concept to him when we were hanging out eating some nice food one day and we decided to work on this together with him sending me tracks, loops, ideas, and experiments that I would arrange, edit, manipulate and combine. I was sent hundreds of pieces of music over a couple of years stretch and during that time I put together this album with all the parts that fitted with my vision.”: https://pitchfork.com/news/listen-to-madlib-and-four-tet-new-song-hopprock/
