standing outside after the diiv/grimes show, diiv’s most famous fan was professing his love for the band when cole (the singer) popped up. randomly i suggested he interview his fan (jason mandel) and then this happened. soon after this, young jason ended up getting interviewed by alan palomo, ryan schreiber, dustin payseur, and cassie ramone (maybe i’ll post those later). weird magic: making dreams come true.

premiere: new video from san gabriel aka la beatsmith butchy fuego. featuring ample lazers, fog and bass, this is definitely weird magic, and just in time for 4/20.
one of our favorite tracks by one of our favorite artists gets the video treatment. this track appears on huerco’s upcoming no jack ep on wicked bass. clip by the man himself, who also just dropped the 7th installation of his all-edits secret musik series (more on that later)
Much like The Field’s illuminating From Here We Go Sublime or Luke Abbott’s Holkham Drones, each track on this collection of the duos series of 12-inches released last year takes you on a different voyage, which isn’t too dissimilar to the next or the last trip it took you on. And every minute of it puts a rapt grin above my chin. There’s a awe-inducing majesty to the moments when all the subtly introduced parts coalesce and then ebb away but there’s also a sense of feeling completely lost, as if every ounce of euphoria you just experienced is more of a fading dream than a ‘song’ or a ‘composition’ or whatever the hell you wanna call these ‘pieces’. Pulling this record apart and picking out one track over another seems pointless (isn’t everything?) and every second you’re reading this, is another moment of your life you’re not spending escaping and fully immersing yourself in the throbbing bosom of Blondes.
