Oneohtrix Point Never – ‘Animals’

Hey you, with the black metal font across your chest. Yeah, you. Take that shirt off if you haven’t heard “Rheia” by Oathbreaker.

Baloji – ‘Spoiler’
I love it when people we’ve been supporting for years get signed to cool label. Baloji signed to Bella Union -rubbing elbows with the likes of Father John Misty, The Flaming Lips and Beach House- and celebrates in style with a self-directed video for “Spoiler” of his latest EP, ’64 Bits and Malachite’. Turn it up, do a little dance and cool back down by reading the subtitles so you can appreciate the lyricism behind the hooks.
