Indian Wells is back with a new album on Bad Panda, this time its slightly more detailed and upfront, maybe more confidence after playing in front of people and tweaking in favor of the live show but without compensating his sound at all. That seems to always be the sophomore album move that is the right move, its nice to get live shows under your belt and be asked to come back and I hope thats what happens here for Indian Wells.
Scott Hansen will be on Red Bull Music Academy Radio today live chatting, this is also local so if you haven’t stopped by the Dijital Fix shop on Valencia St. you definitely should, many of the posters/lithographs at the shop are there in person.
Tune in at 10pm EST / 7pm PST HERE
Toro Y Moi’s “Empty Nesters” is the first single from What For?, out April 7 on Carpark Records.
Chaz brings back the joyous times from the 60s and 70s for our first taste of the new LP.
Galcher Lustwerk released Edits today which a collection of… edits that he’s been doing over the years. You can listen to them all here.
When you visit All We Are’s soundcloud they describe themselves as “Bee Gee’s on diazepam” which is pretty spot on. CFCF massages this out in his natural spacious style, the 2nd half is where the magic happens and vox really opens up and layers over the CFCF treatment nicely.
‘Keep Me Alive’, the supple, dreamily captivating single from Liverpool’s All We Are has been remixed by a crew of talented peers – UK producer Lxury (Greco-Roman), Los Angeles-based dream rock band Warpaint, and Montreal electronic composer CFCF. This 4-track bundle, featuring the original version plus the 3 remixes, is available today digitally on Double Six / Domino.
Tycho hits the road this March, the first of a handful of posters just went up on the shop, you can grab yours here.

I recently had the opportunity to design some album art for Artisan Loyalist on the upcoming full-length album, Lonely Ghost, and the recently released teaser, The Ace EP. Initially, the artwork for The Ace EP was derived from pieces of the Lonely Ghost design: the gem-like cluster started in Illustrator as basic flat shapes that I had worked into 3D, and then overtop, layered a large number of photos I had taken to get the various textures.
This is the premiere streaming release of the the track Light Trail. Lonely Ghost is set to release on Tuesday, February 24th 2015 on Sky Council Recordings, and you can pre-order now on iTunes and Amazon.
Slowly all the summer pool jams are being accumulated, this one from Studio’s Dan Lissvik is without a doubt an automatic on the daytime playlists of 2015.
