Soft Hair are Connan Mockasin and Sam Dust (LA PRIEST / Late of The Pier). Their eponymous debut album is due for release via Weird World.

The album’s recording took place over five years amongst the pair’s solo careers and outside lives. After the dispersion of Late of the Pier, whom Connan supported on tour in 2009 (the first time the two met), Sam travelled in the far east, Africa, Europe and elsewhere, spending time inventing his own instruments, producing and directing, and re-emerging as LA PRIEST in 2015 with debut solo album Inji.

Connan meanwhile released the albums Forever Dolphin Love and Caramel and toured the world extensively, working with artists such as James Blake, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Vince Staples.

The songs on this album were written and recorded in a wide array of locations using methods that neither Mockasin nor Dust had used previously, developed by the pair from the start of its creation. As a result, the record gives the listener a view into an exotic world with a blend of familiar, unfamiliar and unconventionally attractive sounds.

Watch the Soft Hair / Joseph Bird-directed video for first single, “Lying Has To Stop” above.

Speedy Ortiz announce their latest album 'Twerp Verse' out 27th April 2018 via Carpark Records. In addition to their announcement, the band share the first single “Lucky 88,” alongside the Emily Yoshida directed music video. Watch above.

"Lucky 88” expresses optimism that space can be made for more radical agendas and socialist voices. “For the video, we wanted something evil, glossy, cynical, and camp,” Dupuis explains. “Our director Emily Yoshida came up with a concept that addresses our reliance on technology and apps that’s so absorbing, it’s hard to engage with the outside world, even when it is literally being consumed by slime (and, hello, global warming, melting ice, coral bleaching, impending heat death, make no mistake, it IS being consumed by slime).” 

Speedy Ortiz is Sadie Dupuis on guitars, vocals, and synths, supporting guitarist Andy Molholt (of psych pop outfit Laser Background), Darl Ferm on bass and Mike Falcone on drums.

ALEXIS TAYLOR 'BEAUTIFUL THING' OUT 20TH APRIL 2018 (DOMINO RECORDINGS)

Alexis Taylor 'Beautiful Thing'

Beautiful Thing is the forthcoming solo album from Alexis Taylor and will be released on April 20th via Domino. Watch the Edwin Burdis directed video for 'Beautiful Thing' above. 

This is a musician, writer and singer who has carved his own unique path through the music of the 21st century, completely avoiding getting trapped along the way in dumb oppositions of pop vs avant-garde, dancefloor vs intellect, retro vs modernist and so on. He has worked with living legends from major pop stars to free improvisors in the furthest left field, played huge arenas and tiny clubs without ever privileging one over the other, and through all of it, never stopped listening and learning. All of this accumulated experience is put to work on Beautiful Thing in pursuit of something subtle and elusive but ultimately quite profound and beautifully human. 

With ‘Beautiful Thing’, Alexis combines experimental, clattering noises with crazed, disco lavishness and bug-eyed acid house momentum to create something giddy and glorious. The video is a suitably compelling counterpart.

The upcoming record is a bold and confident step forward for Alexis both sonically and in terms of his songwriting abilities. It has electronic thrills, dark spaces, memories of dancefloors, heartfelt writing; it's composed, it's improvised, it's accidental, it's strange, but it's also very immediate. It is a beautiful thing itself:  a moving, modern and unique sounding long-player, to get lost in on repeated deep listens.

UK composer, producer and songwriter Will Archer (formerly recording as Slime), has announced two songs, ‘Scarecrow’ and ‘Cures and Wounds’, his first new music of 2018. Watch the Katia Ganfield directed music video above.

The release follows last year's single ‘Like A Hunger ft. Amber Mark’ and Archer's 2015 album, Company, under his previous moniker, Slime. After composing and writing for the likes of Jessie Ware, Selah Sue and Jeramiah Jae, the release sees Archer shift focus back to his own work. ‘Scarecrow’ takes Archer’s prodigious musicality to a whole new level, moving from the languid, elusive soul of his earlier works towards a more dynamic, robust form of modern instrumental experimentation.

The track is composed of a number of different movements each of which see a different instrument take the lead, eventually building to a gorgeous crescendo. Both ‘Scarecrow’ and ‘Cures and Wounds’ were composed, arranged and produced by Wilma Archer.
