Julia Jacklin reveals second-half of new 7″ “Cold Caller”

A budding ode to her sister, Julia Jacklin’s “Cold Caller,” the second-half of her Eastwick/Cold Caller 7″ out via Polyvinyl Recording, is a sublime bundle of pointed guitar work and nonchalantly delivered sentiments. Wrapped briskly in her cuttingly euphonious wonderings, Jacklin quips tenderly about the changes in her sister’s life that have quietly affected her own as […]

With his forthcoming debut album Aromanticism out in just a few weeks, Moses Sumney has unveiled another single, “Indulge Me,” from his concept album about the sonic dreamscapes of lovelessness.

King Krule waxes philosophical with the lounge-jazz meanderings of “Czech One”

King Krule, the multi-genre juggling stage name of UK artist Archy Marshall, has shared his first new single since 2013 today with the deeply atmospheric, lounge-jazz piece, “Czech One.” Paired with a noir-esque music video filmed on what feels like 80’s home-video tapes, the song sees Marshall wandering amongst strangers–from dimly lit red-eye flights to sprawling […]
