FAYE

Premiere: “Water Against the Rocks (Museum of Bellas Artes Remix)” MP3 Stream

Jul 25, 2012

Recently we fell for Swedish songstress FAYE’s moody debut single, “Water Against the Rocks.” On the new remix, FAYE tapped a few of her friends—likeminded Stockholm-based band, Museum of Bellas Artes—to help her out. (Take a listen to their equally atmospheric track “Dead Silence” here.) Today, we’re pleased to host the remix premiere. Take a listen to the dramatic results below.

Like what you hear? FAYE’s “Water Against the Rocks” single is out now. Museum of Bellas Artes also have a fantastic song called “Bear Cubs” that’s ready for the buying here

MNDR

“Feed Me Diamonds” MP3 Stream

Jul 24, 2012

On August 14, MNDR (or Amanda Warner as her mother intended) releases solo debut, Feed Me Diamonds. Today WNYC offered up the dark, danceable title track. As described by Warner herself, it’s got an even darker context, inspired by performance artist Marina Abramovic:

“Feed Me Diamonds” is solely inspired by a claim that Marina herself made about her father’s death. She claimed that he was murdered by being fed finely ground diamonds which eventually caused internal bleeding in the G.I. tract. This was also a way that monarchs were overthrown: slowly being fed diamonds over a period of time until they eventually bled out.”

Take a listen to the track below, or listen to previous album sample “Faster Horses” here
