Over the summer, we heard a number of tracks from the prolific British house producer Herbert, who has been releasing a serialized collection of 12″ records over the course of the past year. Herbert’s latest offering is “Her Face,” which will be released on the final four-track installment of the EP, Part 8. Additionally, Herbert announced that he will be releasing a full length in early 2015. “Her Face” is a gentle kind of ruminating house song, its hollow sampled beat unleashes in short bursts like synaptic impulses. Listen below.
Ben Gibbard is really into running, so much so that he agreed to be interviewed for an hour about it. Gibbard and Ethan Newberry (BKA “The Ginger Runner”) discuss everything from how Gibbard got his start as a running enthusiast in an effort to kick his unhealthy young adult lifestyle to his preferred pair of sneakers. Around the 51:50 mark, Gibbard briefly addresses Death Cab For Cutie’s forthcoming album, which is due out in the spring of 2015. “I’m really proud of this album,” he says. “I think it’s the best one we’ve made in awhile.” Otherwise it’s entirely about running. Watch below.
“Chess” is the lead single off of Petite Noir’s forthcoming debut EP The King Of Anxiety. Today Yannick Iluga’s project released a retro video by director Cieron Magat that emanates the dream-like, solitary quality of the song. Iluga sings in uncanny falsetto before his voice sinks to unimaginable depths about two minutes into the track. Watch below.
Sorry! That’s fixed now :)
