LRDC This Week New Music Playlist – 7/26/16

Tuesday, July 26th, 2016

Kicking off this week, we have a brand new track from Chairlift who just released a new album less than 8 months ago. They certainly aren’t wasting any time and the song is totally solid. It’s a bit slower than the past singles we have heard from them and has a bit of a fantasy vibe to it. Following this up is new music from Dent May. Everyone’s favorite Mississippian is back and as fun as ever! This song, “Face Down in the Gutter of Your Love” dances around in the squalor that is “love” and it’s quite cheeky.

Going ahead, we have the first track to be released from Kishi Bashi’s undoubtedly amazing new album. If you’re not familiar with this multi-instrumentalist, it’s about time you do some catching up (see “It All Began With a Burst” & “Philosophize In It! Chemicalize With It”). Once you do so, you will realize this guy is something special and so different from any other artist out there.

I’ve added a track that gets a bit deeper into Sofi Tukker’s repertoire and it is so dang fun (just like all of their songs). You may have heard “Drinkee” all over the freaking place, and dug it, well this one is just as catchy and it’s even in English, for all of us non-Portuguese speakers!

Towards the end, we have a track that is not new, it’s just straight out of the 80’s! It’s called A.H.B. and is from a band out of Austin, TX called S U R V I V E. It’s pure synth goodness and is super catchy. And last up, we have the debut track from a duo called The Linedots. They’re super new (a solid group of 46 people like them on Facebook at the time of this post) but not from the sounds of this track. It’s got some killer riffs that remind me a bit of Ratatat in all of the best ways and the fuzzy vocals from Evangeline Ling has a solid Lily Allen vibe.




Dent May – Born Too Late

Wednesday, August 7th, 2013

Goodness! This is the Dent May we all know and love. If you haven’t heard him, he is a magnificent artist and excels at most every instrument he picks up. Often going songs that are rather tongue-in-cheeks, this is one that you could easily put…I don’t know…on the radio on heavy rotation! Imagine listening to the radio (with the same pop-y songs and rap songs talking about women and cars like they are both objects) and hearing this come on! INSTANT GOOD VIBES!

Dent May has a new album coming out at the end of August and if you haven’t listened to his last album which features him solely on the ukulele, do that immediately! The upcoming release, titled “Warm Blanket” (not to be confused with a wet blanket), will take you immediately to comfy-town where May will sit you down and serenade you into a state where drugs are usually necessary. Please enjoy carefully!

Dent May – Best Friend

Monday, May 14th, 2012

Dreamy, swoopy, retro, and chill. All things that describe Dent May’s single from their upcoming release Do Things (June 12th on Paw Tracks). Like the Friends track, this is the ideal song to sing to with your bff while you are driving on the coast. I don’t know if the rest of the songs will be like this on their new LP but if they are as good, you can guarantee this Southern gentleman will be on everyone’s radars!
