ADULT. will invite six musicians from around the country to their home over the next seven months to collaborate and create an album together that embodies the spirit of Detroit, thanks to support from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. Here’s a little video that explains it in my detail.
Following a 4-year hiatus, legendary San Francisco post-punk trio Erase Errata has announced their fourth studio album ‘Lost Weekend,’ which will be self-released on January 20 via the band’s own label Under The Sun and distributed by Revolver. With a sound inspired by Surfside Beach and the Texas Gulf, the moody lead single My Life In Shadows is an understated emancipation anthem to ward off toxicity with a positive acquisition of control.Watch the video via YouTube below.
Karin Park moves even further into darker territories on her new album ‘Apocalypse Pop,’ which delivers catchy rock-pop-synth tracks laced with deep personal lyrics.
‘Apocalypse Pop’ will be released March 2, 2015.
According to her label, every track feels like a statement and Karen cleverly accompanies them with a combination of sultry beats, buoyant drums, delicate piano, and dabbles with a touch of electronica.
Captured Tracks has announced that the young Catalonian foursome called MOURN is the newest addition to their roster. Born from the friendship of Jazz Rodríguez Bueno and Carla Pérez Vas – who later recruited drummer Antonio Postius and bassist Leia Rodríguez – MOURN is a foursome of self-proclaimed “Nerds playing music and shit at the doors of hell.” Paying homage to the likes of PJ Harvey, Patti Smith, Sebadoh and Sleater-Kinney, but with such subtle and sophisticated reverence, it’s hard to believe that they’re so young (Jazz , Carla [18)] Antonio  and Leia )
On February 17th, 2015, Captured Tracks will release the band’s self-titled debut on vinyl (out digitally now though), which will feature 11 tracks recorded live over two days in the studio. If you purchase the digital version before December 1st, we’ll give you the bonus track Boys Are Cunts. Pre-order of the vinyl available here. You can listen to and download lead single Silver Gold right now via Soundcloud below.
Boys Noize (Dog Blood, Skrillex, Mr Oizo) and Chilly Gonzales (Daft Punk, Drake, Peaches) join forces once again for a new collaborative project called Octave Minds. The album will be out on September 15, 2014 via Boysnoize Records. Mixmag premiered the 3rd single from the album, Anthem – listen via Soundcloud below.
The album / their sound includes a mixture of crafted piano composition and electronic beats. The two befriended and created Ivory Tower in 2010 and now, the pair has reunited again for a full-blown album, with an appearance by Chance The Rapper & the Social Experiment.
Starting next Friday, there will be one off events internationally where fans will be able to hear Aphex Twin’s first new record in 13 year in its entirety before the release on September 23. RSVP ticket lottery begins on Sunday, August 31 at 4am PST / 7 am EST / 12pm GMT / 1pm CET and closes Tuesday, September 2 at midnight in each time zone.
The event will happen in these cities (we are crossing our fingers that we get into the Toronto event):
New York City, US
Los Angeles, US
Toronto psych band WISH are set to release their debut self-titled album on August 26th via Hand Drawn Dracula. The album is now available for pre-order. Watch the video for the album’s first single Retro Grade via YouTube below.
WISH is a collection of songs spawned from the mind of 23 year old Kyle Connolly. Having accumulated a wealth of material in the past few years while recording and performing in Milk Lines, Breeze, and Beliefs, Kyle assembled a line-up of musicians and began recording several volumes of his own work at Toronto’s Candle Recording Studio. Joining Kyle are Peter Gosling (Decades, Lobby) on drums, Emily Bitze (Milk Lines) on bass, and long time friend/musical collaborator Josh Korody (Beliefs, Breeze) on guitar.
WISH was produced, mixed, and mastered by Josh Korody and Connolly. Recorded in just two days, the spontaneous feel and energy of their psychedelic dream pop sound calls to mind Sonic Youth, Lou Reed, Pavement, Neu!, and Meat Puppets. In the past year WISH have also shared the stage and the retro sensibilities of King Khan and The Shrines, Ought, and Crystal Stilts.
