Keepaway – “You’re Silk”

We just heard Bear In Heaven’s “The Green“; now here’s another contribution to the Everything Is New Project compilation BOATS, a benefit for impoverished low-caste Indian children. This one comes from Keepaway, and it’s called “You’re Silk.” Every track on BOATS features samples from Light Of Love Children’s Choir as recorded for Marram’s Sun Choir,… More »

There’s a larger dose of videos this week, since we took Friday off for the holiday. And the best videos this week are varied — there’s a new, interactive clip from Au Revoir Simone, another fan-made clip for Sleigh Bells (that is way more fun than the official one), and inscrutable videos from Active Child,… More »

Keepaway Release Free Kompetitor EP, “Zoo Too” (Feat. Das Racist)

When we posted Brooklyn trio Keepaway’s “Sideways Smile” I mentioned it came from a forthcoming free digital-only EP, Kompetitor, said to feature “some music from what’s next, some music from the last few months, some visuals, some ‘remixes’,” etc. (For instance, you’ll recognize opener, “100.”) It’s up for streaming and downloading now and the band’… More »

Keepaway – “Sideways Smile”

Brooklyn trio Keepaway’s “Sideways Smile” comes from their forthcoming free digital-only Kompetitor, which the band says features “some music from what’s next, some music from the last few months, some visuals, some ‘remixes’ … Kompetitor is where the past, present, and future collide.” There are more than a few collisions in this one.

Keepaway – “100”

Percussive Brooklyn trio (and Animal Collective fans) Keepaway follow their ebullient Baby Style EP and Fol Chen remix with “100,” a decidedly witchy single forthcoming via Lefse. We don’t have much info on it, so for now concentrate on the cascading backdrop, hand drums and off-kilter vocals. Fill in the context later. More »

Tanlines, Memoryhouse, Keepaway, Psychobuildings, Light Pollution @ Glasslands, Brooklyn 4/30/10

I’d meant to put up these photos by Sean O’Kane yesterday, but Peter Gabriel got in the way (always getting in the way, that guy). So a day late but still worth framing: Williamsburg’s Glasslands Gallery, which seems to have stepped up their booking game especially since the folks at PopGun stepped up theirs, assembled a… More »

Fol Chen – “In Ruins (Keepaway Remix)”

Earlier this month, masked L.A. sextet Fol Chen dropped the unexpectedly joyous, primordially percussive post-apocalyptic dance jam “In Ruins,” navigating a world covered in ash and acid rain with a trip to find lost love at the dance club. Previously loved post-Pavilion psych-pop trio Keepaway give it a spin with this remix, trading the original’… More »

Keepaway – “5 Rings”

Here’s a couple of tracks off a five-track EP called Baby Style brought to you by Lefse, the imprint that’s put out ’80s-baiting Mountain Dew-approved synth-man Neon Indian and downcast glitch-gaze L.A. BTW the Delta Mirror. Keepaway hit somewhere in between those two, comprise three guys calling Brooklyn home and certainly having heard of Animal… More »
