Dean Blunt, part of Hype Williams and musical partner of Inga Copeland, has unexpectedly dropped a new album last week. Stone Islandpicks up where The Redeemerleft off earlier this year, merging elements of R’n'B, sould and electronic music.
One of the highlights off the record is “Two”. Both the song and the entire album can be downloaded for free.
Sometimes it’s really convenient to have new music sent to you directly from the artist. No promo pics, no long press releases – just some words and a link to the music. Easy to check out. Now and then there’s gems of new songs hiding in between a lot of average stuff.
This is one of these stellar tunes – sent by Baltimore band SUN CLUB. The band has put up their new single “Beauty Meat” on bandcampearlier this month, a song that is part of the 7” of the same name. These guys know pretty well how to add the right amount of distortion to their melodic indie pop to make you feel like being at a perfect house party.
Download “Beauty Meat” right here and head over to the SUN CLUB’s bandcamp page to download the b-side for free.

Long-time guerolitomusic favourite Orca Orcahas just released a new EP called Tidals. Sounding dreamy and jangly as ever Jimmy Hewitt has obviously improved his songwriting and instrumental skills, having arrived at a very high level. It’s only a matter of time before bigger indie labels will take notice of Jimmy’s talents.
Download the EP over at bandcamp and make sure to buy one of the limited, hand-painted cassettes.
For now stick with Tidals’ amazing opener “Climb”.
L.A. R’n'B duo Dead Timeshas already won us over with their tune “Centuries”, which was released earlier this year. Being suckers for modern r’n'b that isn’t too cheesy we also fell for the duo’s new number “Inner Gold”. Listen to it below.
If you have seen the music video for Ducktails’ «Hamilton Road» or if you are the (proud) owner of Real Estate’s Days LP you might recognize the house with the characteristic bird stickers on the windows and the beautiful backyard that appears in this new music video by Matt Mondanile and his bandmates. Seems to be quite an important place for all of these guys. The video – directed by Charles Poekel – features the band, Martin Courtney, Alex Bleeker, badminton, domino and much more.
«Under Cover» comes off The Flower Lane, Ducktails’ latest release on Domino Records.
By the way: Ducktails will soon be in Europe again. There are two shows in Switzerland we can definitely recommend:
