Fascinator unveils video for "Sex Crystals" + announces new LP

In the late '80s, when bands like the Happy Mondays and the Stone Roses were all the rage, Manchester, UK was the kingdom of alternative pop. The wild parties propelled by that scene triggered the nickname "Madchester," which was soon adopted to describe that era's music, which blended funk drumming and psych arrangement with an overall pop sensibility. In new single "Sex Crystal" (video streaming below), NYC via Australia electronic one-man-act Fascinator seems to find inspiration in that sound, something not many Big Apple-based artists have attempted. The formula still works, at least on semi-veterans of the scene like us.
The single will be included in the long awaited sophomore LP 'Water Sign,' out Friday 11 May via Spinning Top (Tame Impala, GUM, POND) /Caroline. Fascinator will support the release with a tour that will see him perform at Warsaw on May 30th.

New Track: "Little Man" - Yeenar

Philly four-piece Yeenar recently shared a new single, called “Little Man”. Unfolding from a tight guitar pattern, the song gathers steam as backend elements flesh out a momentous rush. Riding a wave that escalates and ebbs, as points of wisdom, in regards to youth activity and friendship, are offered. Get outside, and enjoy the company of others, or convene this evening at Ortlieb’s, where the band will be sharing a billing with Effusion 35 and Young Pilgrims.


Post Rock trio Tigue releases "Strange Paradise" EP at Elsewhere on 04.27

Those who were bewitched by Tortoise's post-rock masterpiece TNT owe it to themselves to get familiar with Brooklyn's Tigue. The Brooklyn trio produces hypnotizing, circular instrumentals that slowly evolve in some kind of "internal" way - like in single "Triangle," whose video was unveiled last week. The harmonic content of the song doesn't change (i.e. there is no chorus), but the continued changes in textures and instrumental parts, together with a literally unsettling time signature, keep the track interesting, and the bodies moving. The band will celebrate the release of their new EP 'Strange Paradise' at Elsewhere on April 27th.

Ravyn Lenae "4 Leaf Clover"

Ravyn Lenae has released a video for her song “4 Leaf Clover”. The song features Steve Lacy (The Internet) and is taken from her recently released EP, "Crush".

Lenae will be performing at Pitchfork Music Festival on Sunday, July 22nd.
