New Music Video: "Kanagawa" - Florry

"Kanagawa" is the lead single featured on Florry's forthcoming album Brown Bunny, scheduled for release on November 23 via Sister Polygon Records. Its new music video (by Jamie Alam) captures a candid/vivid home video aesthetic. There’s a mellow melancholy of overcoming loneliness within the steady progression, interjected with intense, instrumental expansions. That mix of somewhat subdued closeness with brash heaviness is an enticing combination. You can catch the band’s record release show on Sunday, November 18 at Tundra Dome, with Corey Flood, Emily Yacina, and Will Table.

   

Sean Henry plays Park Church Co-op on 11.05

Sean Henry, formally known as Boy Crush, disappeared into the ether for a few years. After this 2015 release, there was nothing new from the New York-based artist for a while. The silence came to an end this past summer, with the release of 10-track album Fink, which may make you regret those three years without new music even further. Fink has a shaggy sound to match the floppy hair of the man behind it, and it fits right in with other artists on the Double Double Whammy's roster. It's loose, at times sloppy, but in that endearing way that sucks you in. You can check out Henry's vibe in person this November, as he is performing a few shots. That includes a stop at the Park Church Co-op in Brooklyn on November 5. - Chris Morgan

   

New Track: "Myth of the Groove" - Kilamanzego

Kilamanzego recently shared a new single via Amsterdam based collective/label ZenSupremacy. “Myth of the Groove” crackles and quakes, as the warmth of synth invites, but simultaneously creates a mysterious atmosphere. Then, it finds its footing in vibrant, 8-bit matriculation. Step into that futuristic, funky, weightless beat, propelled naturally but not pushed. Kilamanzego will be joining a lineup that also includes Masie Blu and Gender Work, on Friday, November 23 at World Cafe Live.

   

New Treasure Box EP Available for Streaming & Download

Riding an experimental thread through contrasting calm and chaotic times, Treasure Junkie, the new release from Timothy MacIsaac (nubble light), a.k.a. Treasure Box, is a small gift from the future. That glitchy, free-floating groove sets a pleasant mood, as unexplored corridors are revealed. It has a contained, on-the-brink-of-collapse, burn-out atmosphere. Find that clairvoyant tunnel in the midst of disorder.
