Mitski & Ryan Hemsworth Predict The Song Of The Summer 2015

The song of the summer is a slippery, ephemeral thing. You can try to predict it, labels can (and will) try their hardest to make sure that their song is the one that comes out on top, but it’s still an imprecise science. It means different things to different people, certain niches will gravitate toward… More »

Swim Good x Merival – “Since U Asked”

Toronto producer Swim Good usually lives up to his name, giving us the kind of production that sounds like a sunset melting into the horizon while you’re basking and stroking your way through tropical waves.

(We never did make it to the McDonald’s showcase, damn.) As much a… More »

This was a weird week in the music-video universe, and that was a good thing. Many of this week’s videos (including those that didn’t make it onto this list, like clipping.’s genuinely harrowing “Body & Blood“) do strange things with the form, warping it and manipulating it but still finding ways to complement their songs.
