Two '90s/'00s post-rock vets, Bryce Chambers of Ester Drang and Johnathan Ford of Unwed Sailor, teamed up a few years back to form a new band together, Native Lights. They put out their debut single, "Blackwater" (backed by a cover of OMD's "Of All The Things We've Made"), in 2010, and now they're set to release their self-titled debut album on March 17 via Passive Recordings (pre-order). They've already put out two songs from the album, and we've got the premiere of a third, "La Rosa." It's an atmospheric slow-burner led by Bryce's melancholic singing, but it's got a backbone too. Listen below.

Native Lights are also hitting the road, playing a few dates of the Wray tour, SXSW, and making a couple stops with mewithoutYou. No NYC shows at the moment. All dates are listed below...

Blood Orange premieres new song Delancey listen
Mar 5, 2015 9:45am | Cosequence Of Sound

Producer/songwriter extraordinaire Dev Hynes has been nothing short of busy the last couple of months, collaborating with the likes of Julian Casablancas, Jessie Ware, Heems, and even Ms. “Call Me Maybe” herself. Now, it looks as though the Brit is finally turning his attention back to his own work as Blood Orange. Last night, he released a new demo called “Delancey”.

His first piece of new Blood Orange material since 2013’s Cupid Deluxe, it’s an airy number that straddles the line between late-night, bedroom synthpop and orchestral opus. If this is what we can expect from his highly-anticipated Blood Orange album, then consider us very intrigued. Listen in below.



Mo Kolours opens up about his How I (Rhythm Love Affair) EP stream it in full
Mar 5, 2015 9:43am | Fact Magazine

Plus, we catch up with the London-based rhythm-maker.

Following up last year’s well-received debut album, Mo Kolours has assembled the How I (Rhythm Love Affair) EP, his latest exploration of his personal take on funk and soul, Mauritian sega music and the deepest of deep house.

The EP is due out on March 9 via longtime home One-Handed Music, and precedes another full-length album due out this year. Stream the EP including two throwback-friendly, vinyl-only bonus beats below. Plus, we caught up with the London-based producer about the EP and what’s to come.

What inspired the new EP?

Inspiration for the new EP seemed to come from all sorts of angles. Rhythm exploration, looped cycles, 70s soul, Sumerian tablets, up-tempo mindsets, roots of sound… drums and discos, along with many other topics, people, and general happenings.

How has living in London affected your life and music?

Living in one of the most diverse (in every sense of the word) populations on the planet, makes for a very interesting experience. It has affected my life in the best possible ways, I’ve met some incredible people, and I’ve had some great opportunities. I bug out crossing the Thames, reminding myself of where I am and what I am doing, fulfilling and pushing my ideas of what can be possible. But it is tough, grey, and cold. And an expens...

McDonald's throwing SXSW party (yay), Ex Cops tear into them for not paying the bands that will play
Mar 5, 2015 9:31am | Brooklyn Vegan

SXSW starts in a couple weeks and if you've been recently or read about it or seen pictures, you know that corporate branding is omnipresent there. One of the most infamous and blatant examples was the Doritos stage that looked like a giant vending machine, with the stage being the part where the snacks come out. This year, McDonald's, one of SXSW's "Super Sponsors," is throwing a party and they asked Brooklyn band Ex Cops to play. They declined and co-frontman Brian Harding posted an open letter to the fast food giant on the band's Facebook. Here's a couple excerpts:

This week our band was asked to play the McDonald's Showcase at the annual South by Southwest, also known to music insiders as "SXSW."

Their selling point was that this was "a great opportunity for additional exposure," and that "McDonald's will have their global digital team on site to meet with the bands, help with cross promotion, etc"

I don't, and doubt that they know what this means either.

Getting past that rhetoric, at the very least a big corporation like McDonald's can at least pay their talent a little. Right?

"There isn't a budget for an artist fee (unfortunately)"

As of 2013, McDonalds is valued at 90.3 billion dollars.

...

I will also go ahead and save time for any schill / troll rebuttals; "Are the other showcases paying you? No one is holding a gun to your head!" This is true. It is our choice (pretty...

Shamir Announces Debut Album Ratchet

The chiffon-voiced 20-year-old Las Vegas singer Shamir Bailey appeared out of nowhere last year, dropping his Northtown EP on the Brooklyn DIY label GodMode and then breaking the fuck out with his giddy, irrepressible underground hit “On The Regular.” He’s since moved on to the much bigger label XL Recordings, and he’s now announcing that […]
