“Lean In When I Suffer” music video

March 21, 2018 12:42 pm

Another new one from Speedy Ortiz! The Fader just shared the “fun” music video for “Lean In When I Suffer.” Don’t be fooled by the clowns though. Video directed and produced by Ari Ratner.

“[‘Lean In When I Suffer’] is about that fun breed of ‘ally’ who wears out their already exhausted friends by relying on us for excessive emotional labor. They want props for their wokeness, but don’t want to put in any actual work or divest themselves of power.” – Sadie Dupuis

Two new Palm remixes!

March 1, 2018 3:08 pm

Two new Palm remixes for your listening pleasure! Via Ada Babar and 食品まつりa.k.aFOODMAN. Give them a listen over at Earmilk.

“Originally available only on the Japanese release of Rock Island, the band is now releasing these tracks everywhere. Foodman’s edit of ‘Dog Milk’ adds glitchy texture and nuance to the original while Ada Babar’s take on ‘Color Code’ immediately pushes you to listen to the original to try and deconstruct how they came up with what you’re hearing. The remixes do a phenomenal job of preserving the spirit of the original record while showcasing the remixer’s particular talents and inspiring you to dig more into their work.”

Both original tracks are taken from the band’s new record, Rock Island, available now on the Carpark shop and on all streaming services.
