“Dilly Dally nearly called it quits after their 2016 debut album Sore, the title of which is appropriate: The Toronto group was exhausted after the album release and promotion cycle, enough so that they considered bringing the band to an end. Instead, they’ve just announced that they’re back with their second album, the tile of which, Heaven, alludes to the band’s journey in recent years: “This feels like the album we’d make if the band died and went to Heaven,” the band’s Katie Monks says. Heaven is set for release on September 14 via Partisan.”

Leon Vynehall shared two official videos from his debut album, both made by esteemed director Young Replicant (The xx, Lorde, Flying Lotus).
The British DJ and producer released the accompanying chapters of the novella that were released alongside the album, Nothing Is Still, and they correspond with the two films.
The videos reveal more of the story of his grandparents’ journey to New York from the UK in the 1960s and what was originally told to Vynehall through a series of polaroids and conversations with his Nan, is now visually realised.
Legendary L.A. rapper/producer, Evidence, delivered a new music video for his latest single, “The Factory” this week. For the visuals, director Jason Goldwatch collected a plethora of retro clips to blend and overlay with new footage. The electrifying result, which is both artistic and humorous, shows a side of Evidence some viewers may not be accustomed to. Ev candidly says of the video, “This is my real hair before I cut it. Hope you enjoy!”
Just prior to the release of their fantastic new record The Louder I Call, The Faster It Runs, Wye Oak stopped by Moog Music factory in Asheville, North Carolina, to perform a unique version of “It Was Not Natural.” The duo of Jenn Wasner and Andy Stack kept the song’s signature woozy synth lead intact while introducing drum machines and an army of arpeggiating melodies to the mix, and the result is truly special.

Unlike the persistent debate over how to pronounce their name Slothrust, (it’s Sloth-rust, officially), the LA-by-way-of-New York power trio is a juggernaut of cannonball riffs and lyrical intrigue. They’ve got a new album on the way, The Pact, and its lead single “Peach” — premiering today on Billboard — features frontwoman Leah Wellbaum leading up to the big chorus with after-school mad libs like this: “Silly sandbox, stupid scarecrow; Jack-o-lantern, chupacabra; sick menorah, candelabra.”
