For Magnifique RATATAT returns to their core guitar-driven sound, which they spoke to Spin about in-depth recently.  Recorded over the course of the last four years in various studios in different locations including Jamaica (the country), upstate New York, Long Island, NY and their home studio in Brooklyn, the explained the lengthily recording process to to Spin: “Because it’s instrumental music, you can’t just be half-assed with the music and then like, ‘Oh someone will sing on this,’” says Mast. “It makes it a bit more of a challenge.”

MICACHU & THE SHAPES announce new record ‘Good Sad Happy Bad’ + share first single ‘Oh Baby’


Micachu & The Shapes return three years after the release of their last record Never, by almost accident: the trio of friends decided to rehearse in an East London studio, and found themselves immersed into an hours-long jam. Drummer Marc Pell had an Edirol field recorder in hand, and unbeknownst to his bandmates, recorded the whole session; Pell, Mica Levi, and Raisa Khan were so enamored of those off-the-cuff audio experiments that they became the underpinnings of a new record.

The band have just announced the release of their third studio album ‘Good Sad Happy Bad’ is out Friday 11 September. Today the band have shared their first single from the LP ‘Oh Baby’. Have a listen below!


U.S. Girls announce album Half Free + Share single ‘Woman’s Work’

u.s. girls

The incredible U.S. Girls aka. Illinois-born and Toronto-based artist Meg Remy, will release her new album ‘Half Free’ via 4AD / Remote Control on Friday 25th September.

The second track to be heard from the album, ‘Woman’s Work’, debuted online, accompanied by another hypnotic video directed and edited by Remy. Following up on the release of the mutant dub of ‘Damn That Valley’ earlier this year, ‘Woman’s Work’ builds further anticipation and intrigue; Remy has delivered a nagging, arpeggio-laced stormer, picking away at the themes of beauty and neurosis, with a video that examines our collective paralysis in the face of ageing. Watch it below.
