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 »

Holy Other – “Held”

Holy Other, a Manchester-based producer of emotively gauzy glitch-swoon sadscapes, will soon release his debut album Held. We’ve already heard the early track “Love Some1,” and now, the impressively bummed-out six-minute title track has made it to the internet. Stream it below. More »

Holy Other – “Love Some1″

For the past year or so, the Manchester-based producer Holy Other has been building a dark, gauzy, drifting sound, the sort of thing where the melody always seems to hover just out of reach. His With U EP was one of our favorites of last year, and now he’s announced plans for his debut album. More »

Remixtape Vol. 6

It’s the return of Remixtape, the feature where I listen to a tremendous amount of shitty blog-bait “X Remixes Y” tracks and weed out those worth your weed-out. (Right?) Volume 6 opens with this month’s undisputed champion of tracks bearing Remix in their title: the indomitable “Huzzah!” featuring a fierce set of relatively underground rapper… More »

Stereogum’s 40 Best New Bands of 2011

Last year, right around the time summer turned to fall, we at Stereogum published our list of the 40 best new bands of the year. The idea of a “new” band is a pretty nebulous one, since many of the kids we listed were probably planning out their musical ventures in their basements since they… More »

Holy Other – With U EP

This summer, Manchester-based mixtape perennial Holy Other releases his debut EP on Tri Angle Records, home of similarly gauzy/gothic, dragged-out beat and R&B experimentalists like Balam Acab, How To Dress Well, and Clams Casino. From Holy Other’s strong introductory single — “We Over” b/w “Yr Love” — it’s the latter that carries over to the… More »

Remixtape: Vol. I

Most remixes are shit. This new feature exists in defense of The Remix. So, welcome to Remixtape: a monthly compilation of the best recent remix MP3s floating around the internet because despite the glut of garish promo bloghouse crap, there are actually still people doing this thing artfully. Because there’s an actual art to thi… More »

Holy Other – “Yr Love” & “We Over”

Berlin-via-Manchester shadow builder Holy Other is releasing his debut single on Transparent. The songs have a hollowed-out darkness to them that goes better with morose, romantic Norwegian Svarte Grenier’s gorgeous Knive or more recent Penpals Forever (And Ever) than a lot of the zeitgeist-y bedroom stuff we’ve been hearing in 2010. It’s dancier than Svarte,… More »
