Eyedress releases "Can I See You Tonight" from upcoming summer LP

Eyedress's upcoming LP Let's Skip To The Wedding has been a long time coming, but its release date of August 7th is right around the corner, so you won't have much longer to wait in order to hear the magnum opus. In the meantime, Eyedress has put out another single from the album called "Can I See You Tonight?", a track smacking of Ariel Pink and Wild Nothing vibes that expresses his love for his girlfriend. Her voice appears on the single, as both she and Eyedress recorded the track during one of her visits to LA before moving there. Let's Skip To The Wedding is Eyedress's first LP of original material since moving back to the U.S., and it's tailor-made for a summer that may have us all seeing less of the beach and more of the backyard. Take a listen to "Can I See You Tonight?" below. - Will Sisskind

   

Dan Drohan races forwards on "Drocan!" new LP out 6.26

Drocan!, the latest offering by New York-based experimental electronic composer Dan Drohan, is billed as the B-side of the forthcoming You’re A Crusher — in this sense, it fulfills its purpose as the dark underbelly of Drohan’s explosive, percussion-driven visions. Tracks serpentine between elements synthetic and tactile in rapid fashion, executed in a Futurist fashion that leaves little space for the listener to catch their breath, yet despite this seemingly unstoppable energy, the entire record feels joyous; from the refrain of “Tokyo” to the stumbling fluorescent “Passwords,” Drohan, in collaboration with Mike Cantor, provides an experimental pop vamp that delights and surprises. Stream it below, and keep an eye out for the record’s A-side, dropping June 26th. Photo by Emile Bertherat

   

Tune in and drop out with David V Britton's new video "Silk Null"

The electronic compositions of New York artist David V. Britton have a two-pronged effect, inclining listeners towards focus and meditative relaxation at the same time. Such is the case for new video “Silk Null,”directed by Jeff Mertz, which consists of Britton’s calming-yet-intense sound work against processed 360 degree footage of Mertz’s neighborhood, creating what he dubs a “virtual reality landscape.” Deep hues and a glitch-like quality well fit the at-times overwhelming nature of the track, creating an audio-visual experience that washes over the viewer in waves of varying intensity, never too lush but always hyper-stimulating. These qualities make “Silk Mull” recommended viewing for fans of abstract expressionism or long-form ambient music — think Brian Eno meets Mark Rothko. Watch it below, preferably with a VR headset if you’ve got one on hand, and be sure to check out Britton's recent LP Qualia as well.

   

Golden Rose Boy exposes a glitch in the system in new EP "Floppy Disk"

To say 2020 feels like a glitch in the system would not be a stretch of the imagination: it has all the qualities of disruption indeed. Golden Rose Boy, a chiptune artist from Manchester, NH, gets the tone just right in his May release Floppy Disk which takes the synth-arcade sounds we recognize and morphs them into something sinister and entertaining at once. Tracks like “Lofi Music To Die To - Rest” have a cold ambiance to them, robotic, yes, but also very much grounded in a dark type of biological-sounding atmosphere. “A Summoning - The Inevitable” feels like the anthem to the marching parade of your nightmares, it swells and growls in a manner that excites the imagination. Overall the short entry is something bizarre and welcomed, all at once, it fits the mood of the year; Stream “Golden Rose Boy - Victory Lap” below for something outside your comfort zone. - Rene Cobar

   

NightFire Offers an Escape on New Single "Cave of Dreams"

 

As the pandemic persists and continues to pervade our lives with fear and anxiety, the next renaissance of artistry is slowly fomenting. Artists and creatives are leveraging their quarantine as a solitudinous period to make art - to make something. 

 

The pulsating rhythm of NightFire's new single,Cave of Dreams,” recalibrates and validates ones senses. NightFire released her new single as the first track of her latest EP, which is scheduled to be released sometime this fall. A self-produced singer, songwriter out of Houston, TX, Nightfire has been gaining momentum with recent music releases that have become to garner attention. The EP itself was produced before life crystalized under quarantine, but her lyrics provide a beacon in this dark, restless time. For some of us during lockdown, it may feel like we are in, “dreams, a cave of dreams.” Energy feels more potent lately, dreams are more vivid, interactions have become more sacred. If anything can happen overnight, NightFire asks 'Which of your wildest dreams are you bringing into a reality?' 

 

It's not difficult to lose yourself in the bombinating rhythm of "Cave of Dreams". Sweet like a siren, NightFire sings, “Cast your loving spell now….they can’t find us down here because they don’t know how." It's in this private cave, which includes the dreams that light you up, that makes you feel most authentic, and allows you to leave behind what no longer serves you. NightFire’s hypnotic voice will protect you as you descend deeper and deeper into your subconscious.
