Devonté Hynes – aka Blood Orange – released his sophomore album Cupid Deluxe to critical acclaim last year. Today, he releases a new music video for Cupid Deluxe's grime-inspired track, "High Street" featuring British rapper, Skepta. Click HERE to watch the video exclusively via ssense.com.

 

Subsequent to the release of Cupid Deluxe, Hynes has quickly established himself as one of the most prolific musicians, songwriters, and producers in contemporary music: Cupid Deluxe earned recognition from both NPR Music and Pitchfork in their Top 50 Albums of the Year compilations. Known as "2014's answer to Lou Reed" according to GQ, 2014 has undoubtedly been the year of Devonté Hynes.

Blood Orange's partnership with SSENSE is part of the international online retailer's series of bi-weekly music-based videos, a project that has seen collaborations between established artists and creatives from every corner of the industry. So far, SSENSE has premiered videos for artists like Sky Ferreira, Hercules & Love Affair, and Henry Krinkle. In their most recent release, Maryam L'Ange directed Chloë Sevigny in a noir-inspired fashion film featuring music by electronica three-piece, Eaux. Every video allows viewers to shop the fashion featured on screen, while Blood Orange and Skepta's "High Street" offers an exclusive preview of the upcoming Fall season.

Cupid Deluxe is available for download via iTunes here, and you can order a physical copy of the release via Dom Mart, here. Blood Orange will also be completing his summer festival tour at events like at Lollapalooza in the US and Way Out West in Sweden, and will be headlining Central Park Summerstage in NYC in August.

WHITE LUNG SHARE NEW VIDEO FOR IN YOUR HOME

White Lung | 08/07/14

Image: White Lung In Your Home video still

Fresh from touring Australia and New Zealand, White Lung are poised to release new single ‘In Your Home’ on August 25th before tearing up North America with a string of live dates once again. Mish Way explains the video:

“This video was created by Justin Gradin and Ben Jacques. Justin has done all our album art since our first LP so ‘In Your Home’ is funny, demented and uncomfortable, it's perfect. The star of the video is my dear friend Christina Kenton who pushes the baby cart and smiles at the end. She's an incredible artist herself. This video is filled with people way more talented than the four of us.”

 

Watch the new video for ‘In Your Home’ below.

 

Deep Fantasy is their third full length and proves White Lung to be every bit as confrontational as before, but it appears that Vancouver’s hard hitting rock n’ roll outfit have opened their sound up just enough to draw listeners in:

“I wanted it to sound more like a rock record than a punk record. I didn't want to lose any of the speed and aggression that we have, but I wanted more melodies,” says Way, “But it's still a really hard record.”

Way is more provocative and melodic than ever on Deep Fantasy, lyrically surveying addiction (“Drown With the Monster”), body dysmorphia (“Snake Jaw”) and sexual dynamics (“Down It Goes,”) amongst other dinner table topics.  Guitarist Kenneth William, a devotee of Johnny Marr “plays with the speed of an 80s hardcore dude” whirled in Anne-Marie Vassiliou’s relentless and seemingly effortless approach to drumming.

Mish compiled a playlist: ‘Songs That Inspired Deep Fantasy’, listen  HERE

Deep Fantasy is available to buy now from Dom Mart HERE and through iTunes HERE

AUSTRA SHARE NEW VIDEO FOR HULLUU

Austra | 03/07/14

Image: Austra Hul

Toronto-based Austra have shared a video for Hulluu, directed by Zeesy Powers and featuring choreography and dancing from Emily Law

Hulluu is the last track on Habitat, a brand-new four-track EP which is out now. Order the limited-edition hand-numbered 12" here from Austra or download from iTunes

Katie Stelmanis from Austra said the following about the video:

 

I knew that I wanted the video for Hulluu to focus on movement. I've known Emily since I was 12 and she is the best dancer/waacker in Toronto so I definitely wanted her to be a part of it. Zeesy is a super-talented artist who I used to live with and collaborate with all the time making soundtracks for her performance art pieces (and who was actually the one to encourage me to start performing my own music in the first place). I thought it would be cool to work together again. We used a green screen and filmed Emily dancing to the track for about 4 hours.

In director Powers' words: "The spirit self is unleashed in the nightclub in your mind. The beat hits and time stops, speeds up, slows down. On the dance floor do you compete with others or only yourself? True freedom fills the body with what we have been, are, and could be. Shedding psychic bodies reveals the person always there. Move."

 

 

The band recently completed US west coast dates with Chvrches after having performed at Coachella and Sasquatch and have upcoming festivals in Canada and Europe including a show at Oval Space in London on 10th July. The band has also announced North American dates supporting Broken Bells. Full dates are below.

 

“'Habitat' is an old song that we've waited almost three years to release," says the band's Katie Stelmanis. "It didn't seem to fit with the sounds of Feel it Break or Olympia, so we decided to finally put it out as a single along with 3 new instrumental tracks.There's a lot of live versions of the song online but people have always pressed us to make a proper recording, so we are especially excited to announce these limited-edition physical copies of the EP. It’s a euro-style computer music experiment produced with love from me, Maya, and Dorian."

Sun 12 Oct 2014         UK      NANTWICH  WORDS AND MUSIC FESTIVAL

 

Composed of eleven stunning and emotive tracks, From Scotland With Love was written by King Creosote and produced by music supervisor and guitarist David McAulay, with additional production by Paul Savage, in Chem19 Studios in Glasgow. The record features King Creosote accompanied by his band – Derek O’Neill (keyboards), Andy Robinson (drums), Pete Mcleod (bass), and Kevin Brolly (clarinet) – as well as an additional string section (arranged by cellist Pete Harvey), and a choir of backing vocalists. For One Night Only (RUG608D) will be released as the first single from the album, and both single and album will be available on 21st July 2014. Watch the accompanying video, extracted from the film, From Scotland With Love.


 

From Scotland With Love was created in collaboration with director Virginia Heath and Producer Grant Keir as an audio-accompaniment to a poetic documentary film of the same name, to be released for the Commonwealth Games this summer. Featuring archive footage but no narration or interview, the film works around themes of love and loss, war, resistance, emigration, work and play, and is driven as much by the music as it is the images. For the first time King Creosote found himself being able to write from other people’s perspectives, such as the female characters found in the archive (the ‘fisher lassies’ inspired the moving track Cargill, for example). The result is From Scotland With Love, one of King Creosote’s most widescreen cinematic and finest pieces of work to date.

From Scotland With Love will be released on CD (WIGCD338), heavyweight vinyl LP with download codes (WIGLP338) and Digital (WIG338D). An extended version of the album encompassing all the music from the film will be available on heavyweight double gatefold vinyl LP (WIGLP338X) with 8 bonus tracks, Favourite Girl, Melt, Marie Celeste, Carry On Dancing, Hair of the Dawn, Return Ticket, 678, Bringing in the Bales. Pre-order the album through Dom Mart, HERE. The standard edition is available through iTunes, HERE and the Extended Edition, HERE.

BBC 2 Scotland will screen the film, From Scotland With Love, on the 22nd June at 10pm.

Having first formed in Brooklyn in 2012, Canadian production duo Bob Moses - comprised of Tom Howie and Jimmy Vallance - have recently signed to Domino and are releasing ‘First To Cry’ today.

The rising stars of the underground electronic world’s two-track 12” bundle, ‘I Ain’t Gonna Be The First To Cry’ and ‘Grace,’ is now available for digital purchase.

The band’s lead single, 'I Ain't Gonna Be The First To Cry,' premiered in late May and “is a dark and hazy eclectic mix of blues and electronic with heartfelt vocals” (Combo Rice) who’s “retained arrangement… seems to wring out the emotion of each note” (Clash Music). The track "has a soul of a blues song... with guitar work riding along with the pulse of the beat, the track builds with dark undertones and restraint toward an understated breaking point" (Pigeons & Planes).

For their AA-side track, ‘Grace,’ Bob Moses also released an audio-visual clip.



Currently, the duo is in the midst of a worldwide tour, having already made stops in Paris, Berlin, Ibiza, London, Istanbul and Moscow. They are headed west to North America next week, with a first stop at Brooklyn’s Output on June 20th, where they will debut brand new tracks. The band will then continue on to Miami, Philadelphia, Michigan, Chicago, Toronto and Atlanta. 

'First To Cry’ is now available as a limited edition silk-screened 12” vinyl from Domino and digitally via iTunes, Spotify and Beatport.
