How To Dress Well – “Suicide Dream 2 (elite gymnastics Baptism)”

A couple of weeks ago, we posted "h e r e i n h e a v e n 3," mutant R&B spectre How To Dress Well's cover of a track from the conceptual dance-pop duo elite gymnastics. And elite gymnastics have now returned the favor, remixing "Suicide Dream 2," a song from HTDW'… 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… More »

elite gymnastics – “h e r e i n h e a v e n 3″ (Cover By How To Dress Well)

Over the summer, the internet-addled production duo elite gymnastics released their sparkling Ruin 1 & 2 collection online, and it was enough to generate a ton of buzz and get them signed to Acéphale, the label that's legit-releasing the digital version of Ruin 1 & 2 this week. And soon, elite gymnastic… More »

Active Child – “Playing House” Video (Feat. How To Dress Well)

Earlier in the summer, we posted "Playing House," a sort of summit meeting of forlorn bedroom-indie falsetto addicts Active Child and How To Dress Well. That track now has a video, and whether it's intended or not, the thing comes off as being very, very silly. It's full of cheesed-out smoke effects and quivering… More »

How Independent Rockers Celebrated #IndependenceDay

How did you celebrate July 4th? On a rooftop BBQ listening to our summer mix? Maybe you stayed in and watched old episodes of Hoarders on Roku? Maybe I stayed in and did that. There is no way to know. But all across this great country we do know there were fireworks to be… More »

Remixtape: Vol. 2

A few weeks back James Blake told SPIN, "Remixing is like musical prostitution." Ha -- relax, James Blake. This is the column in which we beg to differ. Much in the spirit of our inaugural Remixtape this month's collection features reworkings from both in-demand prostitutes and adept indie rock knob twiddlers. Honorable mention to… More »

The 9 Best Videos Of The Week

This week's best videos include clips from Rural Alberta Advantage, Rihanna, CocknBullKid, How To Dress Well, and Lord Huron. This week I've decided to start picking one extra video that isn't one of the best of the week, but is still worth watching/talking about, like that excessively violent South Central video from last week.
