Young Magic shares second single “Sleep Now”

April 11, 2016 11:29 am

Young Magic’s newest single “Sleep Now” is streaming now via Under the Radar. Hear what they call “a lithe, lovely song, but far from insubstantial, with electronic and organic elements interweaving to form a fluidly shape-shifting pop soundscape.”

Still Life is out in just over a month! Pre-orders available now in the Carpark shop and iTunes.

The Lines release “hull down” on Acute Records

April 6, 2016 10:59 am

From within the Carpark family, Acute Records is elated to bring you new music from U.K. post-punk and proto-new wave pioneers, The Lines, in the form of hull down, a “lost” album of sorts. Head over to SoundCloud and stream the first single “Single Engine Duster.”

After the release of their cult-classic singles, EPs, and LPs in the late 1970s and early ’80s (compiled on Acute’s Memory Span and Flood Bank releases), The Lines continued to record, first in a series of home experiments and then in William Orbit’s Guerilla Studios. Unfortunately, these recordings were never finalized as band members began to drift apart. Over 20 years after these sessions, the original cassette tapes were dusted off and different incarnations have been blended or cross-faded to create a version of what might’ve been a third LP, an alternate ’80s where The Lines continued developing and exploring.

This will be Acute Records’ final release. Pre-order it today via the Carpark shop or iTunes. Thank you for listening!

Blown Out music video

March 31, 2016 12:42 pm

Head over to The Fader and check out the latest music video from Greys for their new single “Blown Out.” The track is taken from their forthcoming album Outer Heaven, out April 22nd. Pre-orders are available now in the Carpark shop and iTunes. Video directed by Allison Johnston and Shehzaad Jiwani.

Frontman Shehzaad Jiwani on the video: “The difference between sympathy and empathy is a distinct one—hearing someone out is one thing, but really listening to them is another. The video alternates between stark, Godard-esque candor and Lynchian surrealism to illustrate what it’s like inside and outside the mind of someone who suffers from depression, anxiety and other mental health issues.”

“Lucien” music video

March 28, 2016 11:32 am

Young Magic just shared the music video for their newest single, “Lucien,” via The Fader. The track is taken from their forthcoming album Still Life, out May 13th. The video was directed by Johann Rashid and Young Magic

Melati Malay on the video: “I started making ‘Lucien’ in small shack by the water. I spent half a month gathering field recordings, collecting stories and writing music. There is a day called Nyepi or ‘Day of Silence’ where no one leaves the house because it’s believed bad spirits fly over the island. They burn effigies of their monsters (Ogoh Ogoh) and then everyone hides indoors for 24 hours. It’s incredible, the streets are completely empty. I’m not sure if these ghosts still follow me in New York, but making ‘Lucien’ was my way to make an effigy of my own Ogoh Ogoh, and then burn it to the ground.”
