Premiere: Goldfrapp - Anymore 

Goldfrapp just premiered Anymore - lead single to upcoming album Silver Eye out March 31st! And OMG, this single is amazing and continues where 2003 masterpiece album Black Cherry left us. The intro with its dirty synth is heaven and really sets the tone - not to mention how stunning Alison's vocals sound. They're too cool school, clipped and divine. Almost 3 minutes in they shift into a harder beat and the vocal gets twisted into a dark fantasy of gleaming, pounding mantra that suddenly just ends. It's part glossy cabaret, part Berlin club with people having it off in the corners and stiff drinks being poured around. Perfect in the canon of Goldfrapp! Welcome back!

Video Premiere: BANKS - Trainwreck

Visuals from BANKS are always dark and moody treats and the ones to Trainwreck are beyond! He The Altar album is such a emotive body of work and it deserves stunning visual treatments to say the least. Trainwreck the video paits BANKS the artist with what her label might want from her as a popstar. It's an intriguing world to step into and we love how she's so consistent with her work even though she could easily become a 'airplay hit artist' if she wanted to, we're sure. The ending is too damn good! Thoughts?

Premiere: CocoRosie Feat. ANOHNI - Smoke 'em Out

CocoRosie and ANOHNI all get together against Donald Trump in brand new track Smoke 'em Out. Read their statement below. 

Today we share a new song to inspire the weary-disappointed hearts of so many crest-fallen citizens. We just started working on a new album, but “Smoke ‘em Out” begged to be turned loose on the world now, as a means of participation during these turbulent yet invigorating times. Joined on guest vocals by our fellow Future Feminist ANOHNI, “Smoke ‘em Out” welcomes the new character who will be occupying the White House with a mob of women and children armed with forks and knives. In the wake of this unnatural disaster, we feel a call to rise, shout, and burn the house down. The future is female.
peace, Bianca & Sierra Casady

The track itself is a thumping one with a steely, chilly beat, razor sharp rap and a roaring drum machine and ANOHNI's distinct vocals kicking in mid song. Love! The opposition against Trump is real and they (we) bring great music, too. Listen below! Pic via Pitchfork.

Free Download: Lana Del Rey - The Blackest Day (Samuel Fnderio Remix)

Even though Lana Del Rey has been very generous with 4 studio albums between 2012 and 2015 it's easy to go a bit crazy in between. Being under her spell and all! Luckily there are plenty of bootlegs and here's a black and heavy one for The Blackest Day. The original version from the Honeymoon album is already fantastic and from the very first listen it was love from us. Samuel Fnderio adds a harder sound with pouding drums and an atmosphere of high drama which we absolutely love. A single release from the album would have been amazing and we're so happy to have this as a reminder of how brilliant this track really is. Check out below + download it here! Enjoy!

Premiere: Mr. Tophat Feat. Robyn - Right Time

Mr. Tophat and Robyn are releasing the EP Trust Me on January 13th and here is some more sweet beats from it. Remember lead single Trust Me from late last year? Right Time is a bonbon filled with swirls of light and dark, a sweet and salty treat. It reminds in parts of New Order's Blue Monday and the jazz force is also strong with this one. Steeped in the heady world of nightlife and nocturnal events it sounds like a classic 12" to pull out when you really wanna impress a crowd. Robyn is as always trying on new things and her distinct vocals really makes a record stand out. Top marks! Thank U, Rapha!
