Sad13 shares third single “Devil In U”

October 19, 2016 12:49 pm

“It’s about constraining your life to avoid conflict in the face of emotional abuse. You cut yourself off from your support systems and passions to prevent and assuage your partner’s irrational reactions; you force yourself to fit another person’s definition of ‘angelic’ so as not to provoke their ‘devilish’ side. But no devil is worth your care if they don’t love and support you for who you are. And if the ‘Devil In U’ causes you to hurt someone you supposedly love, maybe you’re just the devil, period.” — Sadie Dupuis

This record is like my version of new age music,” he adds. “It’s supposed to be inspiring.”
It is.

Skylar Spence releases single “Faithfully”

October 10, 2016 1:53 pm

A new Skyar Spence track premiered today! Head over to The Fader to stream his dreamy
new song “Faithfully.”

Ryan DeRobertis on the track: “The main vocal sample is from Aretha Franklin’s ”Wonderful,” a song that I sampled a few years ago in my song, “Mr. Wonderful,” which is pretty ebullient and braggadocios by nature,” he said. “I think this song is in stark contrast with “Mr. Wonderful”—when I was making it I pictured two people catching each other’s eyes on a subway. Maybe one of them’s married. The point is, there’s nothing between them besides that fleeting, spontaneous chemistry that’s led many to Craigslist’s missed connections. So this song’s kind of about missed connections. Also, I’d like to stress that it’s an older tune I really wanted to release, and it’s neither a track from my forthcoming material, nor a hint of what’s to come!”


Skylar Spence UK tour starts up this week.
October 12th – Copenhagen, DK – Ideal Bar

Brett remixes MADEIRA’s “Come On Thru”

October 10, 2016 11:16 am

New Zealand’s MADEIRA has shared a remix of her gauzy single “Come On Thru” by Washington, DC dream pop outfit Brett.

“[The remix] is inspired by early Weatherall and Oakenfold productions, as well as the textures found on the Moodhut and Future Times labels. The dance mix builds to a grooving bass line which compliments the soaring melodies of the original.” — Mike Coogan (of Brett)

The original “Come On Thru” can be found on MADEIRA’s debut EP Bad Humors, which is out now on Carpark Records. You can pick up a physical copy of the release on the shop or digitally via iTunes.

Having made her debut US performances in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Washington, DC, MADEIRA plays New York City for the very first time tonight at Brooklyn’s Manhattan Inn — don’t miss out. Tickets available here.
