Sadie Dupuis, aka Sad13, of Speedy Ortiz teamed up with Lizzo after accepting the challenge from Google to create a track purely using Hangouts and Docs. After throwing multiple ideas around, the two met in Brooklyn to record the single, they came up with “Basement Queens.” “With irresistible vocal harmonies and driving bass beats, ‘Basement Queens’ is a celebration of individuality and creation on your own terms.” Stream the track now via Google Play. The track was produced by Computer Magic.

Head over to Stereogum and stream the third single from Benny Boeldt’s forthcoming album, “Valley Amnesia.” 8 of Cups is out two weeks from Friday, pre-order your copy today on the Carpark web shop and iTunes.
Hear what Stereogum calls “a meditative electronic instrumental in the Aphex Twin tradition. Somehow dreamy yet frenetic all at once, it begins as a watery trickle but eventually explodes into a gorgeous flurry of skittering drums and cascading piano melodies.”

“‘Now Is The Time of Emotion’ has the feel of ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ meets Devo under the bleachers in the high school gymnasium, with searing electric guitars that make it feel like the entire pep rally has caught fire, rapidly exploding into the ultimate teenage sexual catharsis while alien cheerleaders continue to chime the infectious chorus hook well into the afterlife.”
Check out Prince Rama’s new “lazer-laden” single, “Now Is The Time of Emotion,” via Noisey. The track is taken from their forthcoming album Xtreme Now, out March 4th. Pre-order the album today on the Carpark shop and iTunes.
