Youth Lagoon - The Knower

Posted by 1 site • Also on: SpotifyApple Music
Over the weekend, a new 7" from longtime blog favorite Youth Lagoon appeared in select record shops, a map to which was posted only the night before. The surprise single served to announce a new album, recorded in Bristol, UK, and due out in September.

Brenmar - Hula Hoop feat. UNiiQU3 +1 remix

Jersey Club is a genre driven by high-energy (130-140 bpm) beats and vocal drops designed to make people get down n' dirty on the dance floor. Here, "Jersey Club Kween" (and Hype Hotel alum) UNiiQU3 delivers a summer jam complete with dance instructions.

Helen - Motorcycle

Among the week's most blogged, the first single from Kranky act Helen (Grouper with members of Eternal Tapestry and Eat Skull) "pairs melancholic but sunny, cathedral-like vocals overtop an overwhelming pile of distorted, rhythmic debris," describes Ad Hoc.

Jack J - Thirstin'

Posted by 9 sites • On SoundCloud • Also on: Spotify
One-half of Vancouver duo Pender Street Steppers drops a new 12" on DC label Future Times. "Laid-back grooves, sun-kissed melodies, an infectious bassline and yearning vocals by Jack Jutson himself," says LaGaSta. "Perfect for your warm summer evenings."

Ought - Beautiful Blue Sky

Montreal post-punk/art-rock foursome return with their second full-length, due out (on the Constellation label) in September. "Eight minutes of minimal, revolutionary rock," says Impose. "Ought ruptures the predictability of life under this beautiful blue sky."

Architect, the debut LP from Glasgow's Christopher Duncan—"A full spectrum of pastel colours that explode into psychedelic life."


VICE traces the history of the largest, most technologically innovative sound system ever built, The Grateful Dead's Wall of Sound.

"Back at the pink warehouse, they were about to revolutionize sound engineering, acoustic theory, and the way people experienced live music for decades to come, and they likely didn’t even know it. Someone lit a joint."

Thanks for listening!
