hold yourself
by tUnE-yArDs
(68 plays) | (0 fans)

Last month, Tune-Yards announced their new album 'sketchy' and released the new single “hold yourself.” For the last decade, Merrill Garbus’ project has bounded through volatile lyrical terrain...Pitchfork recently wrote that the single, "doesn’t shy away from either of those tendencies, exactly. But it’s also elegant and, by Tune-Yards standards, understated in a way we haven’t heard from Garbus and her longtime collaborator, bassist and husband Nate Brenner, for a long time." Check out a full performance they did on KEXP! https://youtu.be/PAfKxGEMqkQ Singer Merrill Garbus says of "hold yourself.": “This song is about feeling really betrayed, by my parents’ generation, and at the same time, really seeing how we are betraying the future." https://bit.ly/2MoHW4Q Check out the animated multi-media visual directed by Basa Studio for “hold yourself." https://youtu.be/2hcG6UgTHiU

by Pylon

Much like their Athens counterparts the B-52s, Pylon got their start in the late '70s and expanded their sound into the brash trash culture of the '80s with a danceable approach to punk and thrash traditions.

Not my Boss!
by Blue Hawaii
(15 plays) | (0 fans)

Larry Mizell, Jr. selected this track as KEXP's Song of the Day today, November 23! https://tinyurl.com/y2st89by Canadian electronic "With one member in Berlin and one in Montreal, Blue Hawaii fuses together a globe-spanning dance party with each new record. “Not My Boss” from their latest release, ‘Under 1 House,’ finds the duo bringing together sultry synth pads with classic house rhythms... It’s the fuel to dance off frustration and find strength on the dancefloor." Canadian electronic duo, Blue Hawaii released 'Under 1 House' in September. The duo said "'Not My Boss!' is a song about money and the dominance it can have over our lives. It’s a proclamation to liberating ourselves from the shackles and binds of the patriarchy. Not my boss is a snappier way of saying ‘fuck Milton Friedman, fuck disaster capitalism, my abundance is constructed of a multitude of events and feelings, I am worth more than dollars and cents.'” Read more here: https://www.stereogum.com/2097363/blue-hawaii-not-my-boss/music/ https://bluehawaii.bandcamp.com/album/under-1-house
