Fans of Tamaryn will have to make due with this in the meantime, as their album CraneKiss, on Mexican Summer, isn’t slated for release until August.

LISTEN — Maribou State “Portraits” via Hype Machine

May 27th, 2015

mariboustate-hypem

“This is the full-length debut from Chris Davids and Liam Ivory, who formed Maribou State after meeting at college in 2011. They went on to release a series of well-received singles and EPs (for labels like Fat! and Southern Fried), as well as remixes for Kelis and Lana Del Rey, leading The Guardian to dub them “the downtempo Disclosure.” As for this new album, Stereogum calls it “some of the most textural, cohesive electronic music we’ve heard this year,” before adding, “just spooky enough to soundtrack a rave held in a graveyard–and just catchy enough to keep you dancing.””– via Hype Machine

WATCH — Pimps of Joytime “The Jump”

May 27th, 2015

pimpsofjoytime-thejumpvideo

“With a funk and soul aesthetic drawn from Brooklyn and New Orleans, the Pimps of Joytime just sounds like a city band. So there’s a moment of cognitive dissonance in the New York group’s video for new song “The Jump” when the musicians are frolicking in nature. The video premieres today on Speakeasy. The song has a lean, hard edge, thanks to a twitchy beat and a dry, jangling guitar riff. Fittingly, the color-saturated clip opens with a shot of singer and guitarist Brian J on horseback, before cutting among scenes of the band members dancing and performing the song surrounded by trees and a dilapidated cabin in the Rockies.” — via The Wall Street Journal

LISTEN — Róisín Murphy “Gone Fishing”

May 26th, 2015

roisinmurphy-gonefishing

“[Róisín] Murphy’s output over the past near-decade has been wildly unpredictable, ranging from dance bangers with porno guitars (“Orally Fixated”) to an Édith Piaf-inspired EP of Italian art songs not to mention two remix EPs that might have stirred the highest of emotions on the dancefloor, if only people heard them. And [her new album] Hairless Toys continues this trend. It’s the most cerebral work of Murphy’s decades-long career, and arguably the one with her most creative control yet, letting listeners closer into her head than ever yet keeping them at a distance even there.” — via Pitchfork
