Pure Bathing Culture - Pray For Rain +1 remix

Atop this week's most-blogged chart is Portland duo (and Hype Hotel alumni) Pure Bathing Culture. The first single from a new sophomore LP (out this fall), "adds new oomph to their crystalline transcendental yacht-pop," says Stereogum.

Darius & FKJ - Ô

Darius and FKJ both record for Roche Musique, a Parisian label that trades in smooth house with a French touch. This silky collab is one of several new tracks that will appear on .WAVE, an impressive, roster-spanning compilation from the label due in August.

SPORTS - The Washing Machine

Music blogs were charmed last year by SPORTS' self-released debut, made while still in college. This new track precedes a follow-up album, recorded in Philly with producer Kyle Gilbride (Girlpool, Waxahatchee, etc) and also purported to be their last.

Valet - Clouds Recycle Culture Magellanic Mix

Posted by 1 site • Also on: SpotifyApple Music
Two Gorilla vs Bear favorites entwine as Bandcamp artist Recycle Culture ("the most versatile producer in the game™") remixes Valet (who has a lovely LP out on Kranky). "Beautiful, swirling, psychedelic..." GvB could "listen to it on loop forever."

Trouble Knows Me - Trouble Knows Me (prod. by Madlib)

Sam Herring, the Future Islands frontman with an underground hip-hop history, teams with beat konducta Madlib. Okayplayer is impressed: "Truth be told, the kid’s got bars, riding over a supremely funky, vintage-set chop that’ll have you catching all of the vibes."

Radiance and Submission, the new LP from the Montreal producer/composer CFCF.


Wax Poetics talks to DJ Cash Money about his incredibly insane record collection.

"Philly at the time was a mecca. There was such a major music scene, like, old warehouses that no one knew about selling forty thousand records for forty-nine cents a pop."

Thanks for listening!

- Dave, Dev & Team Hype Machine
