After recently announcing his highly anticipated debut album 99.9%, due May 6th via XL Recordings / Remote Control Records, KAYTRANADA is back today to share new track ‘Glowed Up’ featuring Anderson .Paak.
The Bo Mirosseni directed video perfectly captures the technical world KAYTRANADA creates in his music and comes on the heels of KAYTRANADA’s recent FADER profile. Speaking about the video, Mirosseni described the process of shooting the clip as being “as surreal and dreamy as the video concept itself actually is.”

Mourn are excited to announce Ha, Ha, He., the follow up to their critically acclaimed debut album which will be released on Friday 3rd June 2016 via Captured Tracks / Remote Control. With the announcement of Ha, Ha, He., Mourn have shared single ‘Storyteller,’ which goes on a trip through downtempo drudgery, into a melodic bridge, and concludes with anthemic sing-screaming.
Listen to ‘Storyteller‘ below:
Mourn’s self-titled 2014 debut LP gave the world an interesting idea: Catalonian teenage wunderkinds making authentically great guitar-based music in an era where it’s considered almost unfashionable. Since that period, the band has faced some very real issues, both personally and professionally, things that 17-to-20 year olds normally don’t have to worry about. When dealing with such a youthful band, you worry about how they will live up to the early attention as it begins to dissipate. Upon hearing Ha, He, He. for the first time, it turns out, we never needed to look forward to Mourn growing into a great band; they already are one.
MikeSimonetti has shared ‘Release Your Body To The Best‘ and ‘Slave‘ out now on 2MR / Remote Control Records.
It’s rare to hear an acid track with vocals these days, but when you do it’s done well and done right by New Jersey based, 2MR co-founder and producer MikeSimonetti.
Santana of French group Claap! features as guest vocalist, coaxing the listener “come to me” on minimal acid tweaker ‘Release,’ and on ‘Slave’ floating above an intensely hypnotic rhythm in francophone whisperings.
The two releases are also accompanied by a Claap! remix of ‘Slave,’ taking the track into brooding and percussive new territory.

The irrepressible King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard have shared People-Vultures, the latest track to be taken from their forthcoming album, Nonagon Infinity.
Amazingly their fourth album in 18 months, Nonagon Infinity is released on Flightless / Remote Control on Friday April 29th 2016 and the band previously announced its release with a free-wheeling video to album track, Gamma Knife.
After the acid-flecked cosmic jazz of Quarters and the hazy, pastoral, acoustic bliss of Paper Mache Dream Balloon, Nonagon Infinity sees the Gizzard once again dive head-long into the gonzo freak-beat frenzy that mark both their Heavenly debut I’m In Your Mind Fuzz, and their perpetually in motion, double-drummer propelled live show.
This high-octane, face-melting 9-song collection has been ingeniously crafted as the world’s first infinitely looping LP – each track seamlessly flows into the next, with the final song linking straight back into the top of the opener.
Melbourne duo OhPep! have a HUGE year ahead of them. Having just signed to Dualtone Music Group(The Lumineers, Shakey Graves) in the US and announced a giant run of shows across Europe and America, they have now shared with us their incredible new single ‘Doctor Doctor.’
‘Doctor Doctor’ is the first taste of an indie-pop masterpiece with the DNA of a folk record. Their obsession with great songs, regardless of genre, has led them to write and record an album with limitless horizons. Stadium Cake which is due for release in July 2016 is now available for pre-order in limited edition coloured vinyl here.
CarSeatHeadrestis excited to announce the release ofTeens of Denialout Friday 20 May via Matador Records / Remote Control Records.
Teens of Denialis the thirteenth album in CarSeat Headrest’s (aka 23-year-old Will Toledo) oeuvre, second on Matador, and first to be recorded in a proper studio with a full band and producer (Steve Fisk).
On Denial, Toledo moves from bedroom pop to something approaching classic-rock grandeur and huge (if detailed and personal) narrative ambitions, with nods to the Cars, Pavement and William Onyeabor. By turns tender and caustic, empathetic and solipsistic, literary and vernacular, profound and profane, self-loathing and self-aggrandizing, he conjures a specifically 21st century mindset, a product of information overload, the loneliness it can foster, and the escape music can provide.
After teasing Teens of Denialin February with the release of single ‘Vincent,’CarSeatHeadrest has dropped its second single off Denial, the hugely hooky ‘Drunk Drivers/Killer Whales.’
Danish artist SørenJuul will release his new album This Moment on Friday 17 June via 4AD / Remote Control Records.
This is his first album under his own name, having previously recorded under the moniker Indians. It’s a deeply personal account of Juul’s life over a tumultuous three-year period, and a first taste of the record can be heard today, the track ‘Dear Child’.
As Indians, Juul scored the song ‘Oblivion‘ for the major motion picture The Fault In Our Stars, composed works for the Copenhagen Philharmonic and was nominated in four categories for the prestigious Danish music awards, Gaffa Prisen. Juul has toured the world with Julia Holter, Beirut and Perfume Genius.
TimHecker, the pioneering electronic composer has today shared a second track, album closer ‘Black Phase’ from his eighth studio albumLove Streams, out next Friday 8 April via 4AD / Remote Control.
As with its predecessor, the cavernous ‘Castrati Stack’, the influence of 15th century choral scores strongly resonate on ‘BlackPhase’, which showcases the voices of the Icelandic Choir Ensemble dissolving into a darkly hypnotic dissonance
