I’ve always liked this little gem from Desmond Dekker & The Aces, and Trojan Records just posted a video for this 1966 song, “007”:
Here’s a prime candidate for 2017’s summer anthem. Toro y Moi just shared a video for “Girl Like You,” full of summer vibes and available on his forthcoming album Boo Boo.
The Berkeley-based creator of the musical project Toro y Moi has only shifted slightly from his chillwave roots into the autotuned dream-pop heard in “Girl Like You,” and the artist has also officially changed his name from Chaz Bundick to Chaz Bear.
He says that Boo Boo was influenced by Travis Scott, Daft Punk, Frank Ocean, and Oneohtrix Point Never.
I recognized that the common thread between these artists was their attention to a feeling of space, or lack thereof.
Last week we shared a song that Chromatics did for David Lynch’s new Twin Peaks series and this week we have another great Chromatics nod to David Lynch, “Shadow,” which serves as a “Tribute To David Lynch’s ‘Blue Velvet’ & The Legendary Julee Cruise.”
The Baltimore-based dream-pop duo known as Beach House have a previously unreleased song now available for your listening pleasure from B-Sides And Rarities, which you can expect to be released on June 30th from Sub Pop records.
You can now watch a full performance of Sufjan Stevens’ Carrie & Lowell in all its glory live.
According to his label, Asthmatic Kitty Records, Sufjan Stevens explores the feelings following the sudden death of his mother in the album Carrie & Lowell. Much of the videos we see in the background of the performance are family videos, many of Carrie, taken by Sufjan’s grandfather, Nick Marabeas.
Sufjan had this to say about the performance:
I found that performing these songs live allowed me to work through my suffering by giving it away. In sharing this music with the audience, I could surrender it to them as a gift, that they might be able to go home and contemplate death with an open heart. It was important for me to create an experience of sadness and exuberance, and to remind people to live everyday as if it were their last.
In addition to getting to experience the full album live in this video, you can also watch him do a cover of Drake’s “Hotline Bling,” which is rumored to be available in September!
Max your screen and enjoy the goodness.
