Tanlines have made an amazing video for Mixed Emotionsfirst track Brothers.

The band spent a lot of time talking about what it is to make music videos in this day and age, and as they do, Tanlines found a way to do something a little different- to make an intimate, simple story take on a few extra layers, to be able to tell a simple story that can be retold in an infinite number of ways.

The video is shot using a 360-degree GoPano lens and has enough easter eggs to justify a few repeated views. It was directed by Weird Days.

Press play and ‘CLICK & DRAG':

Tanlines – Mixed Emotions is out 16 March 2012 via True Panther/Remote Control.

Put Your Back N 2 It the new album by Perfume Genius is out now via Matador/Remote Control.

Perfume Genius is Seattle singer-songwriter Mike Hadreas whose 2010 debut Learning established him as one of the most endearing and quietly forceful performers today, with Hadreas’ work often been compared to Cat Power, Bon Iver and Thom Yorke.

Put Your Back N 2 It, is a more universal work, addressing intimacy, power, family, secrecy and hope, not just through his impressionistic lyrics, but the music itself, which is as lush as Learning was stark.

The hypnotic songs on Put Your Back N 2 It are tender and moving, but they are also surreal and grand, recalling at times the universality of lullabies and hymns, faraway folk songs, the dramatic arc of a film score, and the almost spiritual quality suggests a kind of opiated gospel.

Recorded by John Goodmanson (Blonde Redhead, Sleater-Kinney, Nada Surf) and producer / contemporary composer Drew Morgan, the record is a sonically beautiful, approachable album.

Put Your Back N 2 It is a gorgeous soundtrack for anyone trying to keep it together in everyday life, and moving forward.

Melbourne musician Chet Faker will release his debut EP Thinking In Textures in late March 2012 via Opulent / Remote Control.

Premiered today, ‘Terms and Conditions’ is the first single taken from the much anticipated EP.

Hailing from the tight-knit disco and house music scene in Melbourne and taking elements from an acoustic past, Chet Faker has carved out a unique style that fuses personal stories of love and loss with an electronica soul that reaches far beyond his homeland.

Shrouded in secrecy, hidden behind an alias and disguised by a beard, Chet Faker enjoys mystery. He came to everyone’s attention when his cover of Blackstreet’s classic ‘No Diggity’ hit #1 on Hype Machine, the worldwide indie music aggregator. But far from rushing into the limelight, Chet built on the popularity of ‘No Diggity’ through a series of tracks released online, creating an insatiable hunger from fans for more from this part jazz, part soul and part electronic artist.

Having recently performed in Los Angeles as a guest of KCRW’s heralded music guru Chris Douridas, Chet Faker is poised on the next phase of his development, supporting Toro y Moi and Washed Out in Australia and returning to the US in March to perform at SXSW.

Thinking in Textures will be released in late March 2012 on Opulent / Remote Control in Australia, Chess Club Records in the UK and Opulent in the US.

Stream the new single ‘Terms and Conditions’ below.
