Following last week's launch of her stellar debut album, Amparo, Maria Usbeck shares videos for singles, "Moai Y Yo" and "Uno De Tus Ojos."

Last fall Yumi Zouma set to writing their debut album. Between time spent on the road and the various cities they call home, the songs took shape - refined pop gems that expand on everything we already loved about the band.

Amparo was co-produced by Caroline Polachek and engineered by Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson.
Shot by Garret Curtis, the gorgeous new video for single "Oh" captures Sarah Chernoff floating in the Dead Sea and standing atop a mountain range outside Tel Aviv. "The concept was to bring to life an image, someone else's memory of a trip they took to their homeland. That picture and its stillness has come to define Mt. Si and the patient space the group exists in," the band explained.
et aliae is a pianist, composer and producer who makes refined and future-forward electronic music. Her newest track, "Sober," sees her collaborate with the incomparable D∆WN (Dawn Richard) to deliver a late night, downtempo jam that's as heartbreaking as it is lovely.

Visually articulated by one of the most accomplished young fashion & music video directors in the game, Lauren Sieczkowski, the fall from grace illustrated in Chad Valley's recent single, "Arms Away," is imaginatively captured in the interplay among Brooklyn's Indelible Dance Company, a child actor and Mr. Chad Valley himself.

It has been a trippie trip, sort of a dream come true, sort of a dream become shattered. Kinda incredible how Korallreven, with this weird name in Swedish snowballed from bedroom recordings in Stockholm into a headlining US tour, festivals around Europe, amazing collaborations and all this love we have felt from all around. It's been magic, but there is a time for everything and an end to everything too, also with Korallreven.
So, enjoy this single, as you would the last drop of fresh water in the jungle. It sort of underlines exactly everything we wanted to do from the beginning but never yet achieved. Lifelovingness, big words and melancholy in three and a half minutes, for the last time.
Daniel & Marcus
Korallreven will play two final shows: Sept. 17 @ Wythe Hotel in Brooklyn, and on Oct. 17 @ Debaser Strand in Stockholm.

Next month Cascine will reissue The Children We Were on limited edition vinyl. The material has been remastered, the artwork redone and the record repackaged. Preorder the record here and listen to the first single on Dummy.
Excited to be doing an album with our friend Mark McGuire under his pop alias, The Road Chief. The record's first single 'Summer Eyes' is a bouyant summer jam written when Mark was living in LA and working on a film score. “During the day, I’d get little breaks and just drive around North Hollywood smoking weed and listening to the early mixes of the tracks. Those days were all about bright, sunny midday vibes, glass sparkling-water bottles, coconut milk shampoo, sunscreen smells, the leather interior of the car getting hot in the sun...glimpses like that.”

Yumi Zouma announces their anticipated sophomore EP (out March 10) with a video for new single 'Catastrophe' by BANGS.
Visually, 'Catastrophe' is the first of a two-part film about a fictional small town in which the people are disrupted from their day-to-day life by otherworldly forces. To Cascine, the video points to the need for a collective waking up. To shun outdated ideas that no longer serve us.

Called the “All-healer,” Slime by Korallreven is one of the most effective slimes for healing people, plants and animals. Natural unpolished slime is particularly helpful placed where plants will not grow or animals refuse to sit. It also counteracts negative earth energies beneath buildings or anywhere that feels hostile.
Slime by Korallreven protects against psychic attack, paranormal harm or ill-wishing, and returns the energy back to the universe after being transformed into positive, loving energy. To increase this power and attract good luck, draw an image of the sun and the crescent moon over your Slime by Korallreven in lavender incense smoke.
Slime by Korallreven is also referred to as the “couple’s slime” and gives meaning to relationships that over time, transcends the carnal union and gives way to deeper connection and a more soulful communion. Wear your Slime By Korallreven as an engagement or eternity ring for fidelity, or as a locket to call back lost love.
