UK-based producer Dark0 has stepped up to remix ‘Falling Short’, the latest single from Holly ‘Låpsley’ Fletcher. Simultaneously euphoric and melancholic, this is the latest in a line of Dark0 remixes for the likes of Anushka, OT Genasis and Justin Bieber that are high on drama, emotion and melody.
Remote Control Records, in partnership with Dot Dash, are pleased to share the new single from Melbourne’s Client Liaison. ‘World Of Our Love’ is the first taste from the duo’s forthcoming debut album and was World Premiered on triple j’s 2016 with Richard Kingsmill on Sunday night.

May 20th sees the release of Day of the Dead – a Grateful Dead tribute album benefitting the Red Hot Organisation. The album was curated by Aaron and Bryce Dessner of The National and they have share a new song, ‘Terrapin Station (Suite)’, off the compilation. The track is the most musically elaborate recording on the album, featuring nearly 50 musicians.
The Grateful Dead’s ‘Terrapin Station’, found on the album bearing the same name, was the first time the Dead unveiled a more symphonic and progressive sound. For this new version the Dessners enlisted Grizzly Bear’s Daniel Rossen and Christopher Bear along with members of their band The National to record their take of this iconic track for Day of the Dead. Also on hand to recreate 1977’s entire Terrapin Station were Josh Kaufman, Conrad Doucette, Sō Percussion, and the Brooklyn Youth Chorus.
Car Seat Headrest is excited to share the latest single ‘Fill In The Blank’ from his forthcoming record Teens of Denial out Friday 20 May via Matador Records / Remote Control Records.
The track was named Best New Track by Pitchfork – read the review here.
Teens of Denial is the thirteenth album in Car Seat 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, 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.
Yes! We are super excited that a heap of our friends are playing Splendour In The Grass including Sigur Ros (only Aus show), Courtney Barnett, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, Lapsley,
Methyl Ethel, Sui Zhen & Banoffee!

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.”
Read the in-depth and fascinating feature from Fader where you can learn about Kaytranada’s influences, family and upbringing here.
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.
