Hot Jam of the Day: Cashmere Cat, “With Me”

Posted on by TP1.COM in Hot Jam of the Day | Comments Off on Hot Jam of the Day: Cashmere Cat, “With Me”

Cashmere Cat “With Me” Wedding Bells EP (out January ’14 on LuckyMe) Producer/DJ/songwriter/all-around chill Norwegian dude, Cashmere Cat is back with a new original to follow his genre-defining debut 2012 EP, Mirror Maru. The 25 year-old (né Magnus August Høiberg) doesn’t disappoint, as “With Me” is another trademark emotive dance-ish cut with a characteristically deft vocal sample. He has always had an incredible knack for creating tracks that just flow effortlessly from movement to movement — leaving the listener with engulfing pocket symphonies that …

Download This Shit: Deptford Goth, Life After Defo Remixes

Posted on by TP1.COM in Download This Shit | Comments Off on Download This Shit: Deptford Goth, Life After Defo Remixes

Deptford Goth Life After Defo Remixes Daniel “Deptford Goth” Woolhouse’s exceptional debut LP gets the full remix treatment from an impressive range of rising producers. Though it has mostly flown under the radar in the States, Life After Defo is one of the stand-out albums of the year, and it’s fascinating to hear the stark, emotive originals in new lights with fresh arraignments. If you missed the original, this is a fantastic way to get caught up on one of the best albums of …

Images & Words: Memoryhouse, “Get Back”

Posted on by TP1.COM in Images & Words | Comments Off on Images & Words: Memoryhouse, “Get Back”

Memoryhouse “Get Back” Taken from NPR’s World Cafe Since 2010, there are very few artists that I have devoted more words to than this resplendent Ontario-based dream-wave duo. Simply put, their near-perfect, celestial debut EP, The Years, is one of my favorite albums of the last five years. Its follow-up, The Slideshow Effect, didn’t glitter in quite the same gauzy way, as the group opted for a more upbeat approach, resulting in a slightly uneven effort. That said, I continue …

Images & Words: Arcade Fire, “Afterlife”

Posted on by TP1.COM in Images & Words | Comments Off on Images & Words: Arcade Fire, “Afterlife”

Arcade Fire “Afterlife” Reflektor (out now on Merge) First thing’s first, I like Arcade Fire. I do. However, I’ve found it incredibly difficult to get excited about their critically-acclaimed, fourth album. Yesterday, my good friend and old roommate (who has stubbornly refused to let me ignore Reflektor) finally sent me something that has made me sit up and take notice. “Afterlife” is the kind of engrossing, epic (vomit) statement that made me fall in love with their earlier work, and the …

Hot Jam of the Day: Evian Christ, “Salt Carousel”

Posted on by TP1.COM in Hot Jam of the Day | Comments Off on Hot Jam of the Day: Evian Christ, “Salt Carousel”

Evian Christ “Salt Carousel” Waterfall EP (out February, 2014) The 22 year-old, Liverpool native’s 2012 mixtape, King and Them, was one of the true surprise breakouts of last year. Evian Christ (né Joshua Leary) claimed that he never intended for anyone but friends to hear his Tyga-sampling masterpiece, but once the ever-scrupulous Dummy uncovered it, there was no turning back. Fast forward almost two years, and the low-key producer has played countless festivals, worked on Kanye’s infamous Yezzus Paris sessions, and …

Hot Jam of the Day: Jerome LOL, “Always” (f/ Sara Z)

Posted on by TP1.COM in Hot Jam of the Day | Comments Off on Hot Jam of the Day: Jerome LOL, “Always” (f/ Sara Z)

Jerome LOL “Always” (f/ Sara Z) Deleted/Fool (out 02.04.14 on Friends of Friends) Ex-LOL Boy, current globetrotting DJ Jerome Potter has finally put the finishing touches on his first post-LOL Boys EP, and it should be a monster. The Los Angeles resident is an excellent DJ, but really excels as a producer and songwriter, thanks to his uncanny ability to draw maximum emotion out of the most unexpected places. While he is well-known for his remix work, nothing he did ever touched …

Hot Jam of the Day: Say Lou Lou, “Beloved”

Posted on by TP1.COM in Hot Jam of the Day | Comments Off on Hot Jam of the Day: Say Lou Lou, “Beloved”

Say Lou Lou “Beloved” Better in the Dark (out 11/25 on á Deux) Another week, another bewitching, stylish single from the intoxicating Kilbey sisters. I wrote about the stunning, dreamwave A-Side, “Better in the Dark,” a few weeks back, so I’ll try not to repeat myself too much, but it’s difficult to restrain myself from heaping praise on yet another impeccable SLL track. While there’s still no full-length on the horizon, you can still round up the handful of singles they’ve dropped in …

Hot Jam of the Day: Marissa Nadler, “Dead City Emily”

Posted on by TP1.COM in Hot Jam of the Day | Comments Off on Hot Jam of the Day: Marissa Nadler, “Dead City Emily”

Marissa Nadler “Dead City Emily” July (out 2/10 on Sacred Bones) Fresh off her under-appreciated 2012 EP, The Sister, the folksy Massachusetts product has prepared a follow-up to her break-out self-titled LP of 2011. Its lead single highlights so much of what the 32 year-old does well. Built around an emotive, fingerpicked guitar line, “Dead City Emily” is a quietly plaintiff stunner. Nadler’s vocals have always been incredibly rich, and she’s on top form here, gracefully breezing over the delicate arraignment. Though it seems …

Hot Jam of the Day: Blood Orange, “Time Will Tell”

Posted on by TP1.COM in Featured, Hot Jam of the Day | Comments Off on Hot Jam of the Day: Blood Orange, “Time Will Tell”

Blood Orange “Time Will Tell” Cupid Deluxe (out now on Domino) Simply put, Dev Hynes’ sophomore album under the name Blood Orange is the most important of his career. Score big, and he cements himself as one of the driving forces in pop music and a legitimate star-making producer (Sky Ferreria, Solange). Fail, and he maintains his status as weirdo, fringe-pop bro, more known for hairdos and turtlenecks than hit singles. Lucky for us (and him), the London native didn’t drop …

Hot Jam of the Day: Songs: Ohia, “The Big Game Is Every Night” (Demo)

Posted on by TP1.COM in Hot Jam of the Day | Comments Off on Hot Jam of the Day: Songs: Ohia, “The Big Game Is Every Night” (Demo)

Songs: Ohia “The Big Game Is Every Night” (Demo) Magnolia Electric Co. (Reissue) (out now on Secretly Canadian) When Jason Molina passed in March at the age of 39, the overwhelming response focused more on resigned sadness than shock. The prolific, prodigiously gifted songwriter’s battles with alcoholism and other unspecified health issues have been well-documented, and he shared that struggle honestly in almost all the music he ever made. Ten years on from its original release, Magnolia Electric Co. feels as relevant as …
