VIDEO PREMIERE: ALLOFME “LOSING TOUCH”

March 1st, 2019

Absence makes the heart grow fonder, but can also stop it altogether. ALLOFME’s interstellar video for "Losing Touch" (off his recent The Past Is Still Present) showcases an artist obsessed with space, whether it be in the cosmos or here on earth. Even his sumptuous auto-tuned vocal is delivered in minimal, legato flights. This is a narc’d out breakup song with an insidiously weird beat, a sad jam about losing someone slowly and painfully.

VIDEO PREMIERE: HEVIN “GET YOUR HANDS UP”

February 15th, 2019

hevln is living in hell, and he’s got company. The prolific producer’s lo-fi video for "Get Your Hands Up" is both emotionally detached and gut-wrenching, and a reminder—in case you forgot—that police shoot innocent people.

It’s like a darkly-comic ’What’s Going On,’ warped by modern media. hevln's "Get Your Hands Up" single is available digitally now, and he'll be performing tonight at Resident. Get tickets here!

TRACK PREMIERE: PANDER SERA “GAZEBO”

February 14th, 2019

There’s nothing more alluring than an auteur—the thought of a singular figure building a world and inviting you in to hear the esoteric thoughts kicking around their head. Well, Pander Sera’s thoughts are noisy. On the stadium-sized psychedelic fuzz track ‘Gazebo,’ bright, brilliant snares and ominous low-end ostinato grab you by your laundry-day t-shirt and pull you into a world apart from ours. Sera is a gifted multi-instrumentalist—most notably on these rocket shot drums; they sound like compressed cannons—whose music acts, in her words, ’as a satisfying expression of the internal oscillations she feels living on the cusp of perceived genders.’ ‘Set fire to your new gazebo,’ Sera belts near the end of this 2:22 romp. With heat like this coming from the speakers, she might just light the match for you. Pander Sera performs on Sat., Mar. 16, at Junior High—flyer below!
