“So Right So Clean” music video

February 12, 2019 12:09 pm

Cloud Nothings teamed up with animator Brandt Imhoff to create a post-apocalyptic music video for their bleak and jarring track, “So Right So Clean.” You can also read about how it all came together via The Wild Honey Pie, who produced the video.

“So Right So Clean” is taken from their album released at the end of last year, Last Building Burning. If you haven’t already, be sure to give it a listen on your favorite streaming service.

Madeline Kenney announces new 7″ split with Flock of Dimes

February 11, 2019 11:22 am

Jenn Wasner (of Flock of Dimes, Wye Oak) and Madeline Kenney have come together yet again; this time to release a 7″ split. Get a first listen of the songs via Stereogum’s premiere! “The Sisters / Helpless” will become available on all streaming services tomorrow + you can pre-order the limited edition 7″ via the Carpark shop or grab a copy on tour.

Madeline Kenney on working with Jenn: “Some strange twists of fate and good fortune put me in the orbit of Jenn Wasner’s musical genius for the entirety of 2018. Even after making a record, going on several tours together, and moving into the same house for a time, we just couldn’t bear the thought of our creative collaboration ending. We put these two songs together on the same piece of plastic — a kind of mirroring of how our musicality and personalities are truly two unique sides of the same coin.”

April 23rd – Los Angeles, CA – Moroccan Lounge
April 24th – San Francisco, CA – Swedish American Hall
April 27th – Seattle, WA – Fremont Abbey

“Ordinary Pleasure” music video

February 6, 2019 11:03 am

Following the release of Outer Peace, Toro y Moi just shared a new music video for the second single from the album, “Ordinary Pleasure.” It takes fans on a tour of Toro’s own Company Records studio, introducing fans to the band as they break out into a live performance of the track as Chaz B. dances his way through the space. The track finds Toro’s sound at its most jubilant, carried by a funky bassline and conga drum patterns to create a finished product that Highsnobiety called “the most playful sound from the album.”

“Rarely have I had the experience where my partner is OK with my complexities; my intensity, my warmth, my ambition, generosity or lack thereof. The fact that I unabashedly will not be contained. Instead, my experience, especially in relationships with men, has been this: it is far more comfortable to keep me as a projection of what they want, rather than interact with who I really am.” — Teeny Lieberson
