Watch: Plastic Picnic Release Music Video For "After You"‘

Brooklyn, NY post-rock/indie pop Plastic Picnic have released the video for their newest single "After You".

The song is part of our current playlist and is taken from their upcoming new album 'Vistalite’, which will be out on July 19. Pre-order it here.

Speaking about the song, the band told: "'After You' alternates between hope and crippling fear of change. It's a song about seeing the road you're on while also looking out at the paths or exits spread before you. It embraces the exhilaration of leaning into the unknown and asking yourself if you should take that leap."

The video was directed by Hunter Airheart. Take a look below.

The new record, which finds its guitar work inherently in the vain of Disintegration-era Cure, while injecting electronic elements that would be at home on records by OMD, is a refreshing mix of synthpop, darkwave, and goth, that will appeal to fans of Cold Cave, The Twilight Sad, and Lycia.

New Entry: Underworld & Ø [Phase] Reveal "Border Country" (#DRIFT Ep.4 Pt.6)

Electronic icons Underworld and Ø [Phase] have shared "Border Country", Part 6 of Episode 4, of their #DRIFT series.

Border Country is the second collaboration with friend of Underworld and DRIFT community member Ø [Phase] and the final part of DRIFT Episode 4. Lithe and restless, it edges and darts through unmapped spaces into a place where grimy nocturnal electronics are driven hard by fizzing hi hats and multiple voices ricochet in from the peripheries.

“We’ve been performing Border Country live since November 2018 and though it had never been released we’ve seen how it instantly connects with audiences everywhere we play.” Karl

My relationship with Ashley a.k.a Ø [PHASE] began in Autumn 2017 when I first heard his Submerged Metropolitan release.. it’s not an exaggeration to say I immediately fell in love with his music. There was a sense of journey and mystery and magic to what I heard. Having worked with him for a little while we know he brings that same magic to the table every time, informed by his deep passion and understanding of the lineage of Techno and a thirst to learn and grow. A lovely talented man.” Rick

“I got a message from my label manager sometime in late 2017 titled ‘contact re Underworld’. Apparently the guys were keen to meet to “talk about some ideas”… ?!?!  Within just a few weeks of first meeting we were in Rick’s studio drinking tea, talking together and working on ideas...Border Country came into being gradually, like a photograph coming softly into focus before sharpening into a crisp image, maturing into its final form.” Ashley Burchett aka Ø [Phase]

Drift is an ongoing experiment that will regularly publish new Underworld material – music, film, stories, etc. Pre-order the forthcoming album DRIFT SONGS here.

Moon Duo Announce New LP 'Stars Are the Light', Stream Title Track

San Francisco psych rockers Moon Duo have announced the release of their seventh studio album 'Stars Are the Light'.

The follow-up to 2017's two-part album Occult Architecture, was mixed by Sonic Boom (Spacemen 3, Spectrum), and will be out on September 27th via Sacred Bone Records.  Pre-order your copy here.

According to the press release, the album marks a progression into significantly new territory. From a preoccupation with the transcendental and occult that informed Ripley Johnson and Sanae Yamada’s guitar-driven psych rock, and reached its apotheosis in the acclaimed Occult Architecture diptych, Stars Are the Light sees the band synthesize the abstract and metaphysical with the embodied and terrestrial. 

Says Yamada: “We have changed, the nature of our collaboration has changed, the world has changed, and we wanted the new music to reflect that.” Branching out from Occult Architecture Vol. 2, the album has a sonic physicality that is at once propulsive and undulating; it puts dance at the heart of an expansive nexus that connects the body to the stars. These are songs about embodied human experience — love, change, misunderstanding, internal struggle, joy, misery, alienation, discord, harmony, celebration — rendered as a kind of dance of the self, both in relation to other selves and to the eternal dance of the cosmos.

Taking disco as its groove-oriented departure point, Stars Are the Light shimmers with elements of ’70s funk and ’90s rave. Johnson’s signature guitar sound is at its most languid and refined, while Yamada’s synths and oneiric vocals are foregrounded to create a spacious percussiveness that invites the body to move with its mesmeric rhythms.

On embracing disco as an inspiration, Yamada says, “It’s something we hadn’t referenced in our music before, but its core concepts really align with what we were circling around as we made the album. Disco is dance music, first and foremost, and we were digging our way into the idea of this endless dance of bodies in nature. We were also very inspired by the space and community of a disco – a space of free self-expression through dance, fashion, and mode of being; where everyone was welcome, diversity was celebrated, and identity could be fluid; where the life force that animates each of us differently could flower.”
