Evan Voytas Covers “Nothing Compares 2 U”

It’s been a while since we checked in with L.A. multi-instrumentalist and experimental popster Evan Voytas, but he recently recorded this cover of Prince’s “Nothing Compares 2 U” and today you can snag a download of that endeavor. Though the cover won’t be included on the record, Voytas is set to drop his debut EP,… More »

Stereogum & Popgun STEREO★GUN CMJ Party, Santos Party House, NYC 10/20/10

Last night our STEREO★GUN collaboration with PopGun Booking went down on both floors of Santos Party House. Sometime from when we organized it, to the actual happening, people got especially excited about Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr., who found themselves with a relatively raucous, packed room by the time they played their basement set. There were… More »

Evan Voytas – “Tomorrow Night We’ll Go Anywhere” (Stereogum Premiere)

Tomorrow Night We’ll Go Anywhere is the first “physical” release from L.A. multi-instrumental jazz fan Evan Voytas. We last heard from him via a MillionYoung remix, but you get a more specific sense of his insular, outward-looking sound on past singles like “I Took A Trip On A Plane” and “I Run With You, SpiritMore »

Stereogum & PopGun Present STEREO★GUN: ALL NIGHT LONG 10/20/10

Every autumn NYC’s week-long college music marathon is a great excuse for radio promoters and DSLR-toting bloggers to hobnob with famous publicists. Those who attend on official CMJ bizness even receive a canvas tote bag of promotional garbage. Also there are panels? I’m told There Will Be Panels. Joking aside, in its 30th year CMJ… More »

MillionYoung – “Mien (Evan Voytas Remix)”

Los Angeles multi-instrumentalist Evan Voytas makes MillionYoung’s “Mien” lonelier and more fragile/spare in this remix of “hypnagogic” Floridian Mike Diaz’s Be So True original, though an insular warmth bubbles beneath the surface. Consider it a blend of Voytas’s pastels and “Sad, Like Hearts Can Be” emotionalism. More »

Evan Voytas – “I Took A Trip On A Plane”

With “I Run With You, Spirit Animal” and “Sad, Like Hearts Can Be,” Los Angeles multi-instrumentalist Evan Voytas has shown a certain savvy with insular space disco, and intimate synth-pop, and inserting commas into track titles. This latest single is breaking the mold: piano in waltz time, totally comma free. Still lovely sighs in the… More »

Evan Voytas – “I Run With You, Spirit Animal” Video

Los Angeles-via-Pennsylvania multi-instrumental singer and home recordist Evan Voytas — sort of a more clean-cut Ariel Pink — creates strange synth-pop/space-disco outings that feel danceable but private and insular. The idea’s explored in the video for his most recent single “I Run With You, Spirit Animal.” The clip was directed by Carlos Charlie Perez, who… More »

CMJ ’09: Wednesday In Photos

As far as full-on noon-to-2AM marathon set hunting goes, Wednesday’s spread won’t be topped this year. In addition to bringing us memorable sets from two bands we’ll be watching much more closely in Sleigh Bells and Golden Silvers, the day delivered solid lineups at every turn. I joined photographer Jessica Amaya at ForceField’s day party… More »
