I meant to get this track up last week, but seems like I put the post together but never hit the old publish button. Here’s the latest track from Montreal band Seoul, “The Line” off their upcoming debut album “I Become A Shade” (out June 9th on Grand Jury in the US and Last Gang Records in Canada). The trio have separated the album into three distinct suites, equal parts gauzy dream-pop, reverberant R&B, and speculative ambient. Fans can see them on tour this Spring at SXSW and on a co-headlining run of dates with Ballet School.
And, the playlists are up! Check out what rocked in January, via all your favourite platforms (Rdio, Soundcloud, Spotify and Youtube). This past month started off 2015 in a great way with some killer tunes from EXGF, The Wombats, The Tallest Man On Earth, Young Empires, Passion Pit and many more.
Absolutely drifting away here listening to the magic of Patrick Watson‘s title track from his upcoming release of “Love Songs For Robots” (out May 12th via Secret City). Featuring a dreamscape of swirling synths and ethereal vocals, Watson calls the song “A meditation on the human connection in our mechanical impulses”. I call it a great way to get us excited about his new record.
Watch the album trailer here.
“Somebody New” by Joywave, directed by Keith Schofield. The video finds the band skateboarding around Los Angeles while performing their new song. Speaking about the creative for the video, the band said, “We wanted to look like we were great at some physical activity, so CGI was the only option. For the first time, we had the means to create an alternate universe in which we were actually good at something.”
Best skate video ever.
