WATCH — Miles Francis’ “Swimmers” Short Film + Tour Dates

June 12th, 2018

“To hear them tell it, there’s a star-crossed quality to the collaboration between Miles Francis and Charles Billot, a meeting of complementary dreamers that quickly became apparent when the three of us met at Greenpoint’s BÚÐIN cafe. They had been introduced a year earlier after admiring each others’ work from afar, and a chance message from Charles happened to slide Miles’ way just as the musician was sitting down to mix Swimmers, his solo debut.”

WATCH — IDLES “Danny Nedelko” + Tour Dates

June 7th, 2018

IDLES are a politically charged punk band from Bristol with a new album called Joy as an Act of Resistance. — the period is part of the title — so it only makes sense that they’d end up on a record label called Partisan. They are a band fond of lofty statements, such as the one frontman Joe Talbot issued that repeatedly compares the new album to a parade. (One choice quote: “It is a parade of naivety, of a warm embrace, it is Young Thug’s dress.
”) And in the video for new single “Danny Nedelko,” they’ve got another statement on their hands.”
