Watch Rhye Debut New Song “Waste” In Santa Ana

It’s been two years since the release of Rhye’s debut album, Woman, an album that only sounds better the further removed it is from the influx of moody R&B that hit around that time, and it looks like the duo of Mike Milosh and Robin Hannibal are working on their follow-up. They kicked off a… More »

Milosh – “Right Never Comes”

Last fall Rhye singer Mike Milosh released his latest solo effort Jetlag, an album that in my mind surpassed even the whispery, delicate beauty Rhye achieved on their breakout debut Woman. (As explained in our interview, it was a wonderful love letter to his wife.) Now Rhye is getting ready to head out on tour,… More »

Indie Rock’s R&B Movement Reaches Its Saturation Point

A few years back, a critical mass of musicians started making R&B steeped in the sort of art-damaged signifiers indie rock has traditionally claimed as its own. This wasn’t the first time rhythm & blues had pushed boundaries; legendary figures from Curtis Mayfield to Prince to Missy Elliott managed to get some of the most… More »

Milosh – “This Time” Video

The Rhye singer Michael Milosh has been making solo records for longer than he’s been in Rhye, and he put together his newest, the just-out-today Jetlag, with the help of his wife, actress Alexa Nikolas.

Q&A: Mike Milosh Talks Jetlag, Rhye, Love, Travel, And His Future Creative Endeavors

Although he’s released three previous albums of sighing futuristic pop, Mike Milosh attracted his largest audience by far this past year by collaborating with Robin Hannibal as the airy and mysterious bedroom-R&B duo Rhye. That project’s delicate quiet storm became an underground sensation, which makes Jetlag, the album Milosh releases this week, a coming-out party… More »

Stream Milosh Jetlag

Earlier this year, the mysterious boudoir-R&B duo Rhye released their debut album Woman, building a buzz while keeping temporarily quiet on who was in the group or what their story was. The whispery androgynous voice of the group turned out to belong to one Michael Milosh, a Torontonian living in Los Angeles who’s married to… More »

Watch Rhye Make Their TV Debut On Kimmel

Not too long ago, the L.A.-based bedroom-R&B duo Rhye kept themselves anonymous, surrounding themselves with a cloak of mystery. But now they’re apparently comfortable enough to take the spotlight, as they made their TV debut on last night’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, performing “The Fall,” the soft, searching single from their album Woman. But… More »

Stream Rhye Woman

Since last year, the mysterious bedroom-R&B duo Rhye have been slowly trickling their languid, sexed-out, atmospheric songs to the internet, giving us gooey gallons of vibe and very little in the way of persona. We’ve posted their great “Open” video, as well as a couple of remixes of their tracks, and now their debut album… More »

Rhye – “Open (Ryan Hemsworth Remix)”

L.A. duo Rhye and Canadian producer Ryan Hemsworth are among the young year’s most buzzed-about artists, and they’ve both been racking up plaudits by making some exquisite, luxurious chillout music. Rhye specializes in a wispy, murmuring form of bedroom R&B that’s ultimately not all that far removed from, say, Mazzy Star, while Hemsworth constructs dazed,… More »

Rhye – “Open” Video (Version 2)

Sensuous Sade-intoned LA R&B outfit Rhye have already taken one pass at a visual treatment for their supple love song “Open,” and it very fittingly framed pretty shots of couples dry humping. This new, Daniel Kragh-Jacobsen-directed version connects to their video for the ace track “The Fall,” in that the themes are the same: love… More »

2012 In Review: The New Wave Of R&B Comes Into Full Bloom

Throughout the course of my life I have not been what you would call an R&B listener. A brief history of my dabbling: I owned a cassette copy of Boyz II Men’s II because who didn’t? A year later I nabbed Mariah Carey’s Daydream on CD, mesmerized by the tree swing party that was the… More »
