Screen Shot 2015-08-21 at 2.45.15 pm

The legends Beirut have shared new song and video ‘Gibraltar.’ Joining forces once more with Brother Willis (makers of the kaleidoscopic video for ‘No No No’), and interested by the idea of a setting beside the sea and “the massive island of trash which is growing and floating out in the Pacific.” ‘Gibraltar’ follows Beirut leader Zach Condon and band members Paul Collins and Nick Petree picking their way through a fantasy Gibraltar to meet its ‘Rock’.

Have a watch!

Their forthcoming album ‘No No No’ is out Friday 11 Sept.

Banoffee signs to Dot Dash + releases single ‘With Her’


Yes! We are stoked that Banoffee has signed to Dot Dash / Remote Control Records for her forthcoming EP ‘Do I Make You Nervous?’ on Friday 2nd October 2015.

Banoffee, the solo project of Melbourne based singer and producer Martha Brown, has also dropped her new single ‘With Her’ produced by long time collaborator and friend Oscar Key Sung.

‘With Her’ sees Banoffee’s unique recipe of new wave, R’n’B, gliding synths and majestically layered vocals on full display, with floating textures, aquatic piano and a syncopated rhythmic backbone building into an impassioned crescendo.

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard announce acoustic LP ‘Paper Mâché Dream Balloon’ + new single

They’re back! King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard have announced their seventh LP Paper Mâché Dream Balloon, will be out Friday 13 November via Flightless / Remote Control Records.

Originally, the band thought Paper Mâché Dream Balloon was going to be filled with the darker, heavier material that the band has been playing live of late. But front man Stu Mackenzie soon decided that it was time to put aside the longer, more conceptual pieces and go in a completely new direction.

On previous records King Gizz has channeled many different sounds: From heavily distorted, kraut-driven rock on their 2014 album ‘I’m In Your Mind Fuzz’ to expansive, almost jazzy, Dead-like head trips on ‘Quarters!’ Or as Mackenzie puts it, “I always wanted to be a band where you would expect the unexpected each time, with each album being treated like a different phase.”

Hence, the band’s seventh album was recorded using nothing but acoustic instruments. Mackenzie elaborated on this with: “Acoustic guitars, flute, double bass, fiddle, harmonica, drum kit, clarinet. Whatever we could find really.”

The result is a lovely, lilting pop masterpiece that still evokes the same intoxicating exuberance as The Gizz’s most recent work, but with a more pastoral, communal feel to it.

Deerhunter share new video ‘Snakeskin’


We are stoked that Deerhunter will be releasing his seventh studio album on Friday October 16 via 4AD / Remote Control Records. Deerhunter has shared his new video ‘Snakeskin.’ Have a watch of the killer clip below.

The record was made by founding members Bradford Cox, Lockett Pundt and Moses Archuleta, and bassist Josh McKay. Written in their hometown of Atlanta, GA, production duties were shared by the band and Ben H. Allen III, continuing a collaboration that began with 2010’s Halcyon Digest.

Following the death-rattle garage catharsis of 2013’s Monomania, the group has shifted towards something strikingly balanced, focused on melody and texture. The songs are brighter; if not in content, then in the album’s production. Starkness plays against clutter in what is the band’s most complex yet accessible work to date.

Fading Frontier shows that a decade in, Deerhunter has lost none of its intensity. As the group matures, so they have grown into the most consistent purveyors of art-rock of their generation.

FKA twigs drops M3LL155X EP

Screen Shot 2015-08-14 at 3.54.49 pm

FKA twigs today reveals her new EP on Young Turks. Titled M3LL155X, the EP features five songs, four of which – ‘Figure 8′, ‘I’m Your Doll’, ‘In Time’, ‘Glass & Patron’ – are accompanied by a video directed by FKA twigs. The four film pieces come together to form a single continuous FKA twigs-directed work, cementing who she is as an artist with an aggressive statement conceptualising the process of feeling pregnant with pain, birthing creativity and liberation.

Watch M3LL155X right now at http://M3LL155X.COM

M3LL155X is a continuation of the holistic creative process FKA twigs has undertaken on each of her previous EP releases (‘EP1’ and ‘EP2’), with videos forming an integral part of the release. However, M3LL155X is more ambitious than ever and, in terms of concept, scope and execution, is undoubtedly FKA twigs’ most complete work to date.
