The new Beach House album, Teen Dream, out on Jan. 26.
Local electro-retro-futurist Outputmessage dropped a four-song single yesterday, the third and final one leading to his upcoming album. You can pay what you want for it over at his bandcamp page, or stream it:
Teen Dream, the upcoming Sub Pop debut of the dreamy Baltimore duo Beach House, has leaked, and Gorilla vs. Bear has an mp3 of one of its songs, “Norway.” It’s less minimal, and a bit poppier, than the group’s usual fare, but just as gauzy and hypnotic. Not just one blog has described this as “gorgeous.” Right on.
The hazy Swedish electropop act Little Dragon performs Sunday at Liv, and the Couch Sessions blog dropped a mixtape that pays tribute to the group’s singer, Yumini Nagano, by connecting the dots between her various projects, all of which are, by degrees, jazzy and urbane. D.C.’s Supa Kool DJ Uncle Q mans the boards. Grab it here.
A few weeks old: Casper Bangs has a new EP of lush, romantic guitar pop that you can buy for any price (including $0) from his bandcamp page, as well as a new white-vinyl seven-inch, which you can buy from Dischord for $5. Or listen to the songs here:
