Ducktails – “Letter Of Intent”

Real Estate guitarist Matt Mondanile also records as Ducktails, and his new album The Flower Lane drops next month. We’ve already posted the album’s title track, but the official first single is “Letter Of Intent,” a slow-melting synthpop tune that I’d have to call out-and-out catchy. The track has a vocal from singer Jessa Farkas,… More »

Airbird – “Long Lake”

Joel Ford, the half of Ford & Lopatin who isn’t Oneohtrix Point Never, is now recording his own whacked-out synthscapes under the name Airbird. His Romance Layers EP is imminent, and we’ve already heard the (entirely legal) Mariah Carey-sampling track “Free Mind.” Now here’s another one called “Long Lake,” a handclappy oblique-dance thing that sample… More »

Airbird – “Free Mind”

Joel Ford of Ford & Lopatin’s solo project Airbird has an EP on the way called Romance Layers, a title that has some bearing on his approach to new single “Free Mind”: FADER points out that Airbird used legitimix to secure cheap rights to sample Mariah Carey’s vocal from “Prisoner,” and the legitimix page state… More »

Hear Two New Ford & Lopatin Tracks Feat. Shannon Funchess & Tamaryn

Their 2011 album Channel Pressure was all queasy synthpop, like a bad-dream memory of ’80s PBS science-film soundtracks, but Ford & Lopatin go in a couple of different directions on a new collaborative single. One track, “Snakes,” features Light Asylum wailer and frequent !!! collaborator Shannon Funchess, and it’s essentially a Eurodisco banger, but stripped… More »

Ford & Lopatin – “I Surrender (Peaking Lights Bass Ship Remix)”

When two spacey, psychedelic home-electronic production duos get together, it stands to reason that the results should be extra-spacey and extremely psychedelic, right? In this case, anyway, that turns out to be true, as the dub-inflected Wisconsin duo Peaking Lights have given a super-woozy and bass-heavy remix to “I Surrender,” a track from synth-addled Brookly… More »

Ford & Lopatin – “Too Much Midi (Please Forgive Me) (Alan Braxe Remix)”

When it comes to makers and enthusiasts of retro synth-cheese, game recognize game. At least, I assume that’s what’s going on with this remix: French plastic-dance auteur Alan Braxe reworking “Too Much Midi (Please Forgive Me),” a track from New York dreamwave duo Ford & Lopatin. Listen below. More »

Download Oneohtrix Point Never’s Mixtape For Modular

In the 86th installment of Modular’s artist-curated mixtape series, called Modcasts (clever girl), the Aussie label turned over the reins to Daniel Lopatin — the out-sounds regenerator and vintage synth + electronics producer behind Oneohtrix Point Never, and one half of the outfit formerly known as Games, Ford & Lopatin. The resulting mix runs just… More »

The 7 Best Videos Of The Week

We’ve got new videos from Rihanna, UNKLE, The Grates, and WU LYF this week. I especially like the Ford & Lopatin video because it’s the human version of those Friskies ads. The ones where the cat hallucinates and believes that turkeys, fish, and other edibles worship cats like gods? They’d make really good Animal Collective… More »
