    WATCH | iLe “Canibal”

    According to KCRW, "“Canibal” is a well-crafted video that poignantly explores a self-reflexive perspective on how we cannibalize our feelings and, to a further extent, our identities. It’s a very fitting interpretation that accents the lyrical thematic by iLE & director Juan Manuel Costa of El Birque Animaciones." Click through to watch it now!

    LISTEN | Aphex Twin ‘Cheetah EP’

    The 'Cheetah EP' is slower than Aphex Twin’s last few records, and its beats are straighter... but, as Pitchfork points out, "crucially, with his beats less busy, it has left James more room to focus on spine-tinglingly rich tunings and timbres. And that’s where Cheetah really stands out."

LISTEN – iLe Interview w/ NPR’s Alt.Latino

ile-altlatinointerview

“A common complaint of bands playing Latin Alternative music is that it’s almost impossible to be included in the best propecia only here lineups of the big multi-day summer music festivals that take place across the country. With very few exceptions, mega-fests like Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo and Coachella ignore the music and its fans. Latin Alternative enthusiasts often go to those festivals anyway, of course, because we don’t just listen to one kind of music and are fans of the bands, big and small, who play those events. Fortunately, though, there are now summer music festivals that feature bands from Latin America, Spain and the U.S. that play rock, hip-hop, noise, pop, trap and can you buy prednisolone online instructions just about any other form of contemporary Latin music. That’s the good news. The bad news: Most of them happen on the same weekend. Which creates a challenge for us at Alt.Latino to get out and visit with the musicians and fans who attend those festivals. But, as they say in The Godfather Part II, it’s “difficult, not impossible.” So, with a little help from our friends, we bring you four festivals in three cities, all taking place within 48 hours of each other: Nuevo Fest in Philadelphia, Ruido Fest in Chicago, and the Afro Latino Fest in New York City — the last of which is coupled with the Latin Alternative Music Conference, an annual gathering of Latin Alternative musicians and fans that’s been going for 17 years now.” — via NPR

ygsf-waxpoetics

West Coast End picks up where Daft Punk’s “Fragments of Time” left off—with a modern reimagining of the classic West Coast AOR studio sound of the mid- to late ’70s, when soulful and slick soft rock ruled the FM airwaves. This peak era of sophisticated analog production and stellar musicianship and songwriting produced iconic vibes from artists like Loggins & Messina, Fleetwood Mac, Steely Dan, the Doobie Brothers, Hall & Oates, Carly Simon, Ambrosia, America, and more. Young Gun Silver fox is made up of singer-songwriter Andy Platts of U.K. soul-rock band Mamas Gun and multi-instrumentalist producer Shawn Lee, an American expat who has made a name for himself in the group AM & Shawn Lee, as well as his solo outfit, Shawn Lee’s Ping Pong Orchestra (see the massively popular and resources buy levitra by mail often-licensed “Kiss the Sky” featuring Nino Moschella). With West Coast End, the duo has created a wholly authentic homage to the golden age of California pop—written and recorded in cloudy London.” — via Wax Poetics

Singer/songwriter/producer Black Atlass teams up once again with fashion photographer Kenneth Cappello for the stark and bewitching “Blonde” music video. As BA croons (“Your lips take me to California…”) over his own minimal, hypnotic piano loops, lingering shots of Los Angeles at sunrise build to a fiery climax. “Blonde” immortalizes the pull of this city’s dark side so powerfully-it’s unclear who is seducing who, but we’ll let the love burn either way. Haunted Paradise, Black Atlass’ debut album on Fool’s Gold, is filled with even more snapshots of attraction and temptation.

flockofdimes-semaphore

Flock Of Dimes, aka Jenn Wasner (Wye Oak, Dungeonesse), has shared the first track, “Semaphore,” off her debut full-length album If You See Me, Say Yes coming out September 23rd on Partisan Records. This track is the first glimpse of a record that is the culmination of Wasner’s many years of work crafting her distinct blend of electro-acoustic pop music – forward thinking, emotionally resonant, and stylistically unparalleled. Across all of her projects Jenn balances experimentation with craft, unafraid to be vulnerable– from 10+ years co-creating the novel, guitar-driven Wye Oak repertoire (including last month’s surprise-released Tween), to purposefully putting out several 2-at-a-time 7 inches as Flock Of Dimes, or exploring electronic textures as Dungeonesse. Wasner wrote, performed, and self-produced the record, with help from frequent collaborators Mickey Freeland in Baltimore and Aaron Roche in NYC. It was mixed in Dallas by John Congleton (St. Vincent, Angel Olsen).

The track, which follows ‘Settled Down’ in previewing his Wichita debut, deals with Mike Kinsella’s father’s drinking problem, looking back from a new, more secure place. ‘A Burning Soul’ is refreshingly frank, and sees Kinsella growing even more confident, twenty years into his career.” — via DIY

WATCH — Conner Youngblood “Summer Song”

July 21st, 2016

conneryoungblood-redbullsession

“Nashville-based Conner Youngblood is a curious man. He recently learned Danish because, well, why the heck not? And when he finished touring Europe with Aurora earlier in the year he set off on an expedition around Norway and Iceland, eating bear meat and hanging out with reindeer along the way. There’s also a theme of drifting between places in his music, notably on songs from his The Generation Of Lift EP, which is being re-released by Ninja Tune‘s Counter Records. But it’s not because Youngblood is lost. He’s just trying to find his own sound in his own unique way. “That’s kind of what my whole philosophy has kind of been: like, if you do something awesome, awesome things happen because of it, and you just kind of go along from one thing to the next and follow a path that’s creating itself,” he explained to Vice. “I’m not very good at creating a set of goals and trying to get there – usually I’m just really focused on the exact thing I’m doing, and then when I release that, or put that out into the world, cool things happen because of it.” This happy-go-lucky philosophy seems to be working well for the gifted musician, who kept his talents quiet from friends while studying Amerian Studies at Yale. His songs are pretty yet bold, ambience-strafted songs that mix up – very easily – the alt-folk of Elliot Smith and www.compag.cz Sufjan Stevens with hip-hop, electronica, and bluegrass. Don’t bet against a fidgety Youngblood finding further sounds to throw into an already intoxicating brew. But for now, enjoy where he’s at.” — via Redbull
