Bay Area experimental electronic duo PARENTZ returned earlier this summer with the lovely and nostalgic “Dead Mall,” which is being remixed this week by fellow Bay Area group Pretty, Handsome. PARENTZ have also put together a playlist of songs from their friends, influences, and contemporaries that will have to jamming through all the way to weekend. Will you be finding yourself at the Dead Mall?
NC’s Young Mister (aka Steven Fiore) is set to release his newest collection of songs on Refresh Records this fall and today, he has released the first single from the LP. Stream the track below; preorders for vinyl are available HERE.
Pittsburgh’s West/Step have just released a new track from their upcoming 8/2 LP, This is Terrifying, with the folks over at Tiny Mix Tapes. "Hackurwayhome" combines elements of shoegaze and bedroom pop. A slow burner, the song unfolds gradually, with hazy guitars, feedback and ambient noise, and echoey vocals all layered on themselves before the drum machine percussion hits around two minutes in. A bit dark, but ultimately hopeful in sound, this track sets the tone for the rest of the album, as Whitman describes it:
"This Is Terrifying is a group of songs that deal directly with facing fear and insecurity.
A reflection on years of personal struggle. Songs and words of hope and light shine through layers of somewhat dark melodies.”
Take a listen below or at Tiny Mix Tapes and pre-order the record on West/Step’s Bandcamp now.
Oakland electro pop, and sometimes absurdist, duo PARENTZ just dropped a new single that was inspired by Stranger Things and nostalgia for bumming around the mall as a teenager with nothing else to do. New Noise Magazine has the premiere of the groovy number, with synths and beats galore for your ears to get lost in. Take a listen to the track below or wherever you stream music.
“The track’s wavering energy is entombed in the atmosphere of the synth waves chiming through the air.”
