Here’s what control have up new this week:
Dial Square – Clear Light
Wellingtonians Dial Square released their debut EP ‘Clear Light last week here: http://dialsquare.bandcamp.com/ and the title track is an awesome blend of the indie attitude with the chilled out clangy guitar feel, definitely a group to watch. The live video for this song here:
Husk – Go Alone
More kiwi goodness, Husk are at it again with another abrasive indie rock and roll track, this one a single which you can download on bandcamp.
Phoenix – Drakkar Noir
Phoenix release their newest effort ‘Bankrupt’ today, so you can make your own mind up on it very soon. This was out favourite off the new album, and below is a live version of the song from the recent coachella festival.
The Flaming Lips – Look… The Sun Rising
Boy have this band evolved, I bet you wouldnt imagine to be describing The Flaming Lips album as a dark electronic album. This is the MOST accessible track on the album would you believe, and if you like it as much as we do, we suggest you dive even deeper down the rabbit hole.
Thundercat – Heartbreaks + Setbacks
Thundercat is probably best known as a phenomenal bass guitarist, but perhaps less known for creating nice atmospheric RnB type tunes like this one. Flying Lotus is taking him under his wing in both a label and touring sense, with the two heading off on tour together soon. There’s something about the way he makes his bass sound like an electric piano near the end of this one that really gets me.
Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Slave
The Yeah Yeah Yeahs dont let us down with the new release, continuing to change and evolve their sound. This one starts gentle and ends with the usual raucous YYYs we might have predicted, our top pick off ‘Mosquito’
And the rest:
Bondax – Gold
Cosmos Midnight – Phantasm
Deerhunter – Back To The Middle
Ghostface Killah – Rise Of The Ghostface Killah
Laura Mvula – That’s Alright
Major Lazer – Sweat
Slug Cutters – Oh Girl
The Veils – Dancing With The Tornado
Tom Lark – Hipsteranity
