L.A. punk act FIDLAR are set to release their self-titled debut LP on February 4 via Wichita Recordings in Europe and on January 22 via Mom + Pop in the US. Ahead of that they've contributed a cover of the Descendents' "Suburban Home" to FILTER Presents Milo Turns 50, to celebrate Descendents frontman Milo Aukerman's fiftieth birthday. Other artists to appear on the tribute LP are The Babies and The Henry Clay People. Check out FIDLAR's take on "Suburban Home" below.
New York/London-based label Cascine has delivered a whole bunch of excellent records this year with releases from Chad Valley, Ditt Inre, World Tour, Rush Midnight, Erika Spring and many more. Now they've unveiled their latest signing; the Brooklyn-based producer Wildarms - or Duncan Cooper as he's really called - with a brand new track titled "Unity". It's excellent. Cascine is set to deliver new releases from Wildarms, Selebrities, Ditt Inre, Wintercoats and more in 2013.
A while back Stockholm-based Simian Ghost unveiled their latest single "Autumn Slowmo (For The Dejected Realist)" and today they shared the full Autumn Slowmo EP as a Christmas gift free download, to compensate for recently canceling their UK tour. The EP contains "Autumn Slowmo (For The Dejected Realist)" as well as two brand new tracks; "Sunday" and "Dizzy Spells", and they're all expectedly gorgeous. Check out all three tracks below.
BNF-favourites Heart Throb Records recently released the latest 7" from London's Torches, "Someone Needs A Ritual", and on Friday they unveiled the four-track EP Christmas Heart Throbs on which they gathered a few of their favourite acts for exclusive covers. Ides, Howl, Bear State and the aforementioned Torches all contribute, and Torches turn out a great version of Dusty Springfield's "Spooky" - which you can listen to below. Head over to the Heart Throb Records Bandcamp page to listen the whole EP, plus it's available for 'pay-what-you-want' download. Merry Christmas!
Frank Ocean's been one of the most important artists this year and now he's unveiled a brand new song on his Tumblr. The track, titled "Wiseman", was written for Quentin Tarantino's film Django Unchained which premieres on Christmas Day (except here in Sweden where we'll have to wait until January 18) but it didn't make the final cut. Check out what Tarantino had to say about it and listen to the song below.
