BRAIDS Premiere New Single and Mixtape

braids

Montreal based band BRAIDS are revving up for their debut album early next year with “Plath Heart”, their new single and a mixtape called Yours Truly. The eclectic band is a quartet of best friends that decided to unite for the power of music, and the result is a playful yet serious study of alternative pop music led by a female voice. You can check out “Plath Heart” here. Their upcoming LP release is called “Native Speaker”, but you can catch them live while BRAIDS tour North America next year.

CFCF Releases A Second Mixtape

CFCF (aka Michael Silver) has released a second mixtape into the wild.

Do U Like Night Bus? is out now via The FADER. What is a night bus?

“night bus is a silly little term that originated on Hipinion that describes not a certain genre but a certain feeling of music,” Silver Explains. “Can’t quite describe what it is but Eno, G-Side, David Sylvian, DJ Screw, Angelo Badalamenti, Lil B, and the Akira soundtrack, are all super night bus.”

Silver predicts that his music will be part of a much larger trend.

“We could imagine this mix as a zeitgeist as far as what might happen in music in certain circles in the next 365 days aka people are probably gonna be REAL INTO slowing shit down and kind of already are.”
