UNDER THE RADAR: Ásgeir - "Unbound"

Singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and collaborator; the mighty Ásgeir returns with brand new single ‘Unbound’, and announces his highly anticipated second album ‘Afterglow’. ‘Unbound’ is a stunning, yearning piece of music. The Icelandic artist has spent three years honing and perfecting the eleven tracks that make up this magnificent and affecting body of work. Unplanned track and lead single from the album ‘Unbound’ is a glittering menagerie of chirping electronic melodies and stop-start beats that came about in a last minute studio session, evolving from a singular, inspiring lyric: “Nothing holds me back now.” Afterglow released on May 5th 2017 via One Little Indian.

UNDER THE RADAR: Laura Marling - "Next Time"

The UK folk musician Laura Marling seems to grow more confident and badass with each successive album. Next month, she’ll release the new LP Semper Femina, probably her best album yet. She’s shared her self-directed video for the new album track “Next Time.” The song, built on a swirl of acoustic guitars and strings, is just suffocatingly lovely. And the video, like Marling’s clip for first single “Soothing” (which she also directed), is built heavily on thoughtful choreography. In this one, a woman dances around an ornate seaside room that she can’t seem to escape.

UNDER THE RADAR: Los Campesinos! - "5 Flucloxacillin"

Los Campesinos!, release their new album Sick Scenes via Wichita Recordings. The band recorded the album, co-produced by long-time collaborator John Goodmanson and band member Tom Bromley, during Euro 2016 in Fridao, Portugal. The album exists as a release of pent-up aggression, a document of both personal and societal malaise. But it’s also a celebration of just getting to be a band again, of getting to play music with our friends. Thematically the record is concerned with fumbling for personal relevance while trying to be a better person. Repressing anxiety and attempting to function while constantly maintaining the perfect two-beer buzz. It is set upon a backdrop of non-league football, prescribed medication, and crumbling hometowns. These truly are the Sickest Scenes.

THE BLACK FLAG TOUR MACHINE GRINDS TO A HALT IN ‘REALITY 86’D’.

To support what would prove to be its last studio album In My Head, Black Flag did a full national tour in the autumn of 1985 and then basically repeated the process in the first half of 1986. For that second go-round—Black Flag’s last tour—they were joined by Painted Willie and Greg Ginn’s new side project Gone, which featured future Rollins Band members Sim Cain and Andrew Weiss. The drummer for Painted Willie was named David Markey, one of the founders of the punk zine We Got Power! and he took along a video recorder and took a copious amount of footage during the several months. The result of Markey’s filming was an hour-long movie called Reality 86’d.

UNDER THE RADAR: Oakland, CA band RAYS releasing debut LP on Trouble in Mind

Oakland, CA’s RAYS were born and bred in the city’s fertile underground scene. The group’s dystopian jangle has a lot in common with the first Modern Lovers LP, ’80s Flying Nun and the current crop of Australian bands that circle around Mikey Young. In fact Young mastered RAYS’ self-titled debut album which was produced by mid-fi maestro Kelley Stoltz and will be out March 30 via Trouble in Mind. A good example of what RAYS do is “Made of Shadows,” a song that is both frantic and catchy, pulled along with warm, drony organ.

UNDER THE RADAR: Temples - "Strange Or Be Forgotten"

UK psych-rockers Temples released last month the shimmery single “Strange Or Be Forgotten,” which is off the band’s forthcoming sophomore album Volcano. Now the song gets a semi-meta video that depicts the band directing a video. The actual video was directed by James Beale, and features the members of Temples capturing footage of a diverse cast of characters, each of whom gets to posture uninterrupted as the camera slowly zooms into and away from them. The striking attention granted to each subject makes for a visual of remarkable empathy.
