Song of the Week: Darkest Place by Woman's Hour

Song of the Week: Darkest Place by Woman’s Hour

There are plenty of songs about heartbreak that holler and yell about hearts being torn out, or someone being left for dead. But few of them hit quite as hard as the beautiful, simplistic sound of a colloquial voice plainly stating “you cut me loose because I let you down”....

Stream Darkside’s Debut Album, Psychic

As an artist, Nicolas Jaar is motivated by progress. Anyone else might have become attached to a successful record label they started at the age of 19, but Jaar just closed the doors on his Clown & Sunset imprint, for little more reason than wanting a ‘clean start’. He’s moving...
Holly Walker is About to Explode

Holly Walker is About to Explode

Several of the ATS writers have been huge fans of Holly Walker for years after falling in love with her sadly defunct band Sly Mr Fox when we were teenagers. Walker has since released several EPs that brilliantly showcase her classical piano skills and soulful voice, but which have been...
Weaves Release Third Brilliant Song in a Row

Weaves Release Third Brilliant Song in a Row

Weaves is a the product of a beautiful meeting-of-minds between RatTail’s Jasmyn Burke and Sweet Thing’s Morgan Waters. Thus far, they’ve only released three tracks, which all are totally different yet equally brilliant. The first was the slow and woozy ‘Hulahoop‘, followed by the much more fast-paced and hook-heavy ‘Motorcycle’...

Today is a great day to get your heart broken. Soothe your aching heart with two break up belters from MØ and Sky Ferreira. The UK may be grey and drizzly, but we can regain summer for a brief moment with MØ’s new track, ‘Never Wanna Know’. It is taken...

The Men’s Campfires Are Better Than Yours

Do you have a really great campfire memory? There’s music playing, everyone’s sitting around feeling warm and connected and watching the flames dance in the darkness? Well compared to The Men’s campfire, your campfire was shit. If you don’t believe me, check out the beautiful, swelling ‘Turn Your Colour’ below, from their upcoming Campfire Songs...
Stream: Enemies- Embark, Embrace

Stream: Enemies- Embark, Embrace

Embark, Embrace is a dazzlingly apt title for Enemies’ second album. It’s a invitation to the listener- get lost in their lush layers of sound, and fall in love. Enemies also dabble with including vocals on this record, but they never overwhelm the multi-faceted instrumentation. Executive Cut (featuring Conor Adams from Cast of Cheers) is...

New: Dirty Projectors- The Socialites (AlunaGeorge Remix)

Dirty Projector’s Swing Lo Magellan was one of our favourite records of 2012- now, we get to fall in love with one of the tracks, ‘The Socialites’, all over again. The Socialites Remixes is released today, featuring reworkings by Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard, Falty DL and AlunaGeorge, which you can listen to below. For those...
New: Suffer Like G Did- Beow

New: Suffer Like G Did- Beow

I’m not really sure how to accurately describe the kind of music Suffer Like G Did play- I’ve heard it described as both alt-jazz and math-rock, which is exceptionally confusing. All I’ll say on the matter is on ‘Beow’, their sound is brilliantly executed, highly original and funky as all Hell. The band described ‘Beow’...

The beautiful people over at Italian Beach Babes are streaming Sealings’ eponymous EP in its entireity. If you’re partial to loud, scuzzy rock, I cannot recommend this highly enough.

Video: Wild Nothing- Paradise

Video: Wild Nothing- Paradise

Wild Nothing have released a video for Paradise, and it’s almost as stunning as the song itself. It features Michelle Williams reading an extract from A Word Child by Iris Murdoch, recorded in the Rare Book Room (where the song/album was recorded). If you like what you hear, be sure to download the track here....

Video: Young Rival- Two Reasons

Young Rival just dropped a new video for the track Two Reasons, and had this to say about it: Just about a year ago we stumbled upon the face-paint artwork of James Kuhn and decided to e-mail him to see if he’d be up for a collaborative video. He said yes, and after we received...
Stream: Night Moves- Coloured Emotions

Stream: Night Moves- Coloured Emotions

I don’t think album titles come much more fitting than Night Move’s ‘Colored Emotions’. It’s both filled with lush, colourful textures and clearly from the heart. It features vocals that can be described as both soulful and howling, and guitar lines that beg to be swayed along to. Basically, it’s fucking great, and you should...

Stream: How to Dress Well- Total Loss

How to Dress Well (aka Tom Krell) is currently streaming his new album, Total Loss, ahead of its release next week. The album is full of sublimely haunting, RnB-influenced sounds, and is one of the strongest efforts I’ve heard recently. About his creative process, Krell stated: “I had reached a point in my own life...

Stream: Grizzly Bear- Shields

You can now stream Grizzly Bear’s new album in its entirety over at NPR. Whilst preliminary listening suggests it’s not as lush or majestic as Yellow House & Veckatimest, it’s still definitely worth a listen. Check out ‘Sleeping Ute’ and ‘Yet Again’ in particular. Shield is released on the 17th September via Warp Records.
