UNDER THE RADAR: Vondelpark - "California Analog Dream" (Official Video)

UNDER THE RADAR: Indie rock trio Vondelpark do a whole lot with very little on “California Analog Dream,” a track whose delicate, understated soulfulness sounds and feels much louder than its subtlety might seem to let on. The song’s new music video works in a similar minimalistic way, as director Rollo Jackson just focuses on the London three-piece as they perform in a huge, empty room that’s lit in soft red and orange hues.

THIS IS OUR MUSIC: "Drop" by Githead

THIS IS OUR MUSIC: The appearance of Githead and the release of their debut EP Headgit in 2004 surprised many, not only because of the unlikely ‘front line’ of Wire’s Colin Newman (guitar/vocals), Minimal Compact’s Malka Spigel (bass, vocals) and Scanner’s Robin Rimbaud (guitar), but also due to the band’s cyclic, hypnotic funkiness, not to mention their avant-pop sensibility.

NEW MUSIC: Tame Impala - "Mind Mischief" (The Field Remix)

NEW MUSIC: Much of Tame Impala’s work involves meticulous studio tinkering to nail specific sounds and feelings of hypnotic loneliness, and this idea carries over to The Field‘s remix of “Mind Mischief,” which is drawn out into a ten-minute showcase of soft-focus loops and a bassline that sounds like it was wrapped in like sixteen wool blankets.
