Native Speaker

Montreal experimental pop outfit Braids just put out a video for Plath Heart, one of the tracks off their acclaimed 2011 debut, Native Speaker. Plath Heart uses primal drums, psychedelic synths, and playful vocal cadence to convey an otherworldly feeling. The video takes you down the rabbit hole as well.

Trill Trill

Sleigh Bells finally releases a video for Rill Rill, the only slow tempo track off their 2010 debut, Treats. While the song may be lazy and sweet, the video is super creepy.

With all the snow, some of which is still in my shoes, I could really use something warm and sunny.

Dan Bejar aka Destroyer's latest electro/jazz album is a smooth one. Kaputt is easily the sexiest album of the still young 2011. As you can see from the provocative yet tripped-out Dawn Garcia-directed video for the title track, Bejar is well aware of the sexiness.

Kaputt is out 1/25 via Merge. Don’t forget the “Archer On The Beach” 12″, which includes two songs not found on the record.

Good Girls

Vivian Girl Katy Goodman's La Sera project is set to release their self-titled debut LP February 15 via Sub Pop offshoot Hardly Art. Before that, La Sera will release a new 7" single on the label, "Devlis Hearts Grow Gold", January 18. 

Below, you can check out the single's title track (which also appears on the La Sera full-length). Like her previous release Never Come Around, covered here, this song sounds like sunshine with a beautiful catchy melody. It'll be paired with the non-LP cut "Dedicated to the One I Love" as the B-side. That's the ultra-strange single art above; check out the tracklist for both the single and LP below.

"Devils Hearts Grow Gold" 7":
01 Devils Hearts Grow Gold
02 Dedicated to the One I Love

La Sera:
01 Beating Heart
02 Never Come Around

06 Left This World
07 Hold
08 Under The Trees
09 Devils Hearts Grow Gold
