“Mark” MP3 Stream
Oct 01, 2014
La Plage’s second single “Mark” is a delicate piece of minimal pop. Quite different from their jangle-filled debut track “Rendez Vous,” but hey—it’s too soon in the relationship to start making any sort of sweeping judgments, right? Listen below and revisit their debut single “Rendez Vous” here.
“Bent” MP3 Stream
Oct 01, 2014
Kiasmos’ (Ólafur Arnalds and Janus Rasmussen) new single “Bent” follows in line with what we’ve already heard from the Icelandic duo. (See: previous offering “Looped.”) Expect some seriously emotive slow-motion techno. The band’s self-titled album drops Oct 27 on Erased Tapes.
Chances are Peter Morén’s (Peter Bjorn and John) two Swedish-language albums kinda flew under your radar. (Guilty as charged.) Well, Morén is in the process of making it up to us non-Swedophones. Last year, he released an EP called Broken Swenglish Vol. 1, that featured cuts from his two albums, I spåren av tåren and Pyramiden, rerecorded in English. On Oct 7 he’ll continue the trend by releasing—you guessed it— Broken Swenglish Vol. 2. It’s a driving collection of rock songs with some serious heart. We’re pleased to host the premiere of the project below.

“Lost Tribes” Video
Sep 26, 2014
Gruff Rhys has debuted a new video for "Lost Tribes." The song is taken from the Super Furry Animals frontman's latest solo album, American Interior, which is already out in the U.K. and comes out in America on November 4 via Turnstile.
A press release explains the video as such: "'Lost Tribes' is a song about the 18th century explorer John Evans's misguided quest to find a lost Welsh tribe in the American interior—thought to be descendants of the mythical 12th century prince—Madog. In this video directed by Dylan Goch, Gruff Rhys dresses for the wilderness in the guise of a Welsh radical, sartorially inspired in particular by the druid and Chartist Dr. William Price. Evans is represented by a 3 ft tall avatar in felt designed by Pete Fowler and the Felt Mistress."
American Interior is more than just an album, but is also a documentary in which Rhys retraces Evans journey and an app.
Rhys also has some upcoming U.S. tour dates:
November 6 Philadelphia, PA @ Boot & Saddle
November 7 Boston, MA @ Brighton Music Hall
November 8 New York, NY @ Baby's All Right *
November 10 Toronto, ON @ The Legendary Horseshoe Tavern
November 11 Ferndale, MI @ The Loving Touch
November 12 Chicago, IL @ Schuba's
