I Break Horses – “Load Your Eyes” (Star Slinger Remix)

It’s always fun when two of the people from our 40 Best New Bands Of 2011 list show up on the same track. In this particular case, it’s British producer Star Slinger lending his woozily diffuse beatmaking style to “Load Your Eyes,” a head-spinner of a track from Swedish electro-shoegazers I Break Horses.

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.

Alex Winston – “Sister Wife” Video

The last time we looked at Detroit singer Alex Winston’s “Sister Wife,” the track was tagged “a more modern-backbeat affair, with a big, breezy hook and deceptively hefty lyrics fusing female roles a la Cass McCombs.” Directors Noel Paul and Stefan Moore went with the fission over the fusion, with Alex in white than red,… More »

Remixtape Vol. 3

This month’s Remixtape begins with a wistful twist (Clams Casino, a Gold Panda redo of Lykke Li, Phone Tag tagging up Small Black’s “New Chain,” Creep working on Planning To Rock) and ends on a pop note (that Star Slinger remix of Alex Winston), with the middle dedicated to stranger and more beat-oriented musics.

Stereogum Monthly Mix: January & February 2011

After a holiday break and an inclemently weathered January, our Monthly Mix series returns with a two-month/one-mix compilation that sets a defiant tone. If not for the year, then for the persistently re-accumulating, gut-checking frost. The key elements (aside from recency and excellence) are electronics and sequence, with a late-mix flip to stringed instruments, before… More »
