Stream: Just Blaze x Baauer - “HIGHER”

TNGHT's self-titled EP was one highlight of last year's ever-growing genre of Frankenstein, dance-floor, trap music: Gamera-sized beats that make you want to drink, smoke, freestyle and grind like you’re in Sodom or Gomorrah, not Williamsburg.

Baauer had a killer single and a few remixes in 2012 that explempified this to a tee, so it’s no shock producer-extrodinaire Just Blaze tapped him for an upcoming tour. Apparently, this is the first fruit of their collaboration… Here’s hoping it gets even better.

Stream: Ducktails - “The Flower Lane”

image

So Real Estate guitarist Matthew Mondanile has the fourth album of his Ducktails project due out early, early next year. Til now, the band’s been a solo, bedroom act, nothing but seams-showing, shambling, lo-fi, psychedelic-pop. The Flower Lane, however, is Mondanile’s first album proper, recorded in an actual studio, with actual musicians, which might help explain that keyboard-heavy AOR sound.

It’s not quite The Doldrums-lite, but there’s definitely some Ariel Pink coming thru the cracks…
