Gold Leaves is the new project of Grant Olsen, who is better known as Arthur in Seattle’s folk duo Arthur & Yu. The debut LP “The Ornament” will be released August 16th on Hardly Art. The title track has a vibrant yet dreamy vibe, and I’m really looking forward to hearing the whole album. Gold Leaves – The Ornament by hardlyartrecords Follow  Read More

Sneaky Sound System – “We Love”


Australia’s Sneaky Sound System is back with another album, and here is the lead single. The video is highly inappropriate – well, not really (you’ll understand once the lights come up). The group, in the past, has taken away many wins and nominations at ARIA for their dance music, so when their album drops on Modular in August we’ll let you know and see if it lives up to their amazing past: Follow  Read More

New Single: iamamiwhoami, “John”

More art piece than music (though the music is quite interesting, in a good way), iamamiwhoami continues to make statements with their music videos. Their point of view is often hard to grasp, and sometimes it’s not meant to be. The landscape scenes are tremendously beautiful in a utopian regard, and the design of the sets are interesting in a way that both compliments the music and also defies it as a different point of view altogether.

New: TV On The Radio – “Nine Types of Light”

TV On The Radio have not only recently released their fifth album titled “Nine Types of Light”, but also an accompanying movie consisting of music videos for every song interwoven with interviews of New Yorkers speaking about various topics. This Brooklyn based band can do no wrong in my opinion, and this album is pure pleasure. Here is the video for “Caffeinated Consciousness” and also the full-length hour long film. Full-length film directed by Tunde Adebimpe. Follow  Read More

New: Figurines – “Figurines”

Figurines self-titled fourth album will be released in the US tomorrow on the Control Group label. The Denmark band produced and recorded the album on their own. After a four year hiatus between albums for personal reasons, their sunshine-laden sound is already a staple in my Spring rotation. Here is the video for “Hanging from Above”, the opening track off the album. Follow  Read More
