Stream This Shit: Unknown, I Cry EP

Posted on by TP1.COM in Download This Shit | Comments Off on Stream This Shit: Unknown, I Cry EP

Unknown I Cry EP (Champion Sound) Stream the fantastic, shadowy new EP from this Burial-ish anonymous Irish producer. On the heels of its evocative lead single, “I Cry,” the EP plunges into the sonic mire of down-tempo, bedroom dub-step with understated aplomb. Though we still know almost nothing about its author, it’s the exciting first etchings of an potentially brilliant portrait that will hopefully cCome into focus in the coming months. Pick it up on vinyl before it inevitably sells out …

Hot Jam of the Day: Friends, “The Way”

Posted on by TP1.COM in Hot Jam of the Day | Comments Off on Hot Jam of the Day: Friends, “The Way”

Friends “The Way” The Way Single (Lucky Number) Devonté Hynes (Blood Orange, Lightspeed Champion, Test Icicles) is having a moment right now. Fresh off writing two of the best pure pop songs of last year — Sky Ferreira’s “Everything is Embarrassing” and Solange’s “Losing You” — the suddenly in-demand producer/multi-instrumentalist penned a storming, unlikely comeback for the Sugababes (MKS’ “Flatline”) and had a hand in this sexy return to form from Samantha Urbani’s revamped Friends project.

All of those come highly, highly …

Hot Jam of the Day: Holy Ghost, “Teenagers in Heat”

Posted on by TP1.COM in Hot Jam of the Day | Comments Off on Hot Jam of the Day: Holy Ghost, “Teenagers in Heat”

Holy Ghost! “Teenagers in Heat” Dynamics (out 09/10 on DFA) I’m moving to New York in two weeks, and there’s nothing I would rather soundtrack my new adventures with than a new Holy Ghost! album. Nick Millhiser and Alex Frankel’s sound has always been pure NYC, and “Teenagers in Heat” is no exception.

And just like that, 2013 is half over. In short, it was an incredible six months of music, and as I do around here, I decided to round up all my favorite songs of the last six months.
