Teengirl Fantasy – “U Touch Me” (Feat. Hoody) Video

We caught a glimpse of Teengirl Fantasy’s video for “U Touch Me” two weeks ago, when the duo released the interactive site for their Thermal EP. The video, directed by Tatiana Valentin and Taran Allen, can be seen on a billboard along a freeway, which you might not have noticed if you were too busy… More »

Stream Teengirl Fantasy Thermal EP

Teengirl Fantasy released their new EP Thermal today, and you can stream it now on an interactive website. A few months ago, James pointed out that the group has a “witch-house-once-removed vibe,” which is going strong on Thermal. On the website, the EP’s four tracks are individually showcased in their own futuristic video game landscape,… More »

Teengirl Fantasy – “Lung” (Feat. Lafawndah)

Besides a one-off track in January, this year has been quiet for the Amsterdam-based production duo Teengirl Fantasy. That’s about to change: they’ve just announced a new EP, Thermal, that will be out in November, and shared the first track from the new release. “Lung” doesn’t stray far from the witch-house-once-removed vibe the band wa… More »

Hear Sonic Youth’s “Creepers & Climbers,” Previously Heard Only By Plants

Plants are living things too, right? So why shouldn’t they get music just like the rest of us? That’s the goal of artist Peter Coffin, who began his Music For Plants art series in 2002. Inspired by a quacky 1973 book The Secret Life Of Plants that speculated that plants were sentient beings, he started… More »

Teengirl Fantasy – “TonBase”

The dance production duo Teengirl Fantasy just released their Nun EP a few months ago, but they’re already back with a new track. “TonBase” is an orphan — it appears to have no home on any forthcoming albums, at least as far as we know — but it’s an intriguing one-off. The wriggling instrumental split… More »

Teengirl Fantasy – “Nun” Video

The Oberlin-born, Amsterdam-based dance duo Teengirl Fantasy have a new EP called Nun coming later this month, and in making a video for its skittery and evocative title track, they’ve recruited director Hans Lo to make something of a glitched-out Gravity. Lo made the video by editing together surveillance footage of Earth’s ecosystems. Watch it… More »

On Teengirl Fantasy’s new LP Tracer, the Oberlin-rooted duo of Nick Weiss and Logan Takahashi add a significant stable of vocal cameos to their live-mixed, unfurling electronic dance music: Catch Panda Bear on on “Pyjama,” Kelela’s Dirty Projecting harmonic pirouettes on “EFX,” Laurel Halo spaced-out syncopations on “Mist Of Time,” and Romanthony (the voice of… More »

Listen below. More »

Teengirl Fantasy – “Motif (Actress Remix)”

Motif,” the house-y, synthy new single from Teengirl Fantasy (their first release since the 2010 LP 7AM), initially appeared online a few weeks ago, in advance of their Tracer LP due later this summer. Here “Motif” gets remixed by London DJ/producer Actress (aka Darren Cunningham), who strips the track to its beaty basics. Stream it:… More »

Teengirl Fantasy – “Motif” Video

Following up the other day’s announcement of their “Motif” single, Teengirl Fantasy come through with a Clayton Harley-directed video for that very track. It’s basically what it looks and feels like to be at a Teengirl gig, with video presets set to “murky VHS vibes.” Check it:… More »

Oberlin-rooted Brooklyn duo Teengirl Fantasy are set to followup their 7AM LP this year, starting with a 12″ out on R&S Records. The A-side, titled “Motif,” is streaming today, mixing steady house beats with murky ambience and colored up with warped techno synth work. It’s due later this summer, along with a remix by Actress,… More »

CMJ 2011: Class Superlatives & Our Finest Photos

We’re on the other side of CMJ now, which you could probably tell by the uptick in the music news cycle, or by some bloggers’ (could be any bloggers, no way to know who I am talking about) bleary eyes and corresponding level of risibility. Stereogum threw a couple of parties early on, then shifted… More »

Teengirl Fantasy – “Cheaters” (Remixed By Beautiful Swimmers & John Talabot)

Here are a couple of great refits on one of last year’s more memorable singles, from one of last year’s best new bands. “Cheaters” is the signature song on Teengirl Fantasy’s debut LP 7AM, a paean to Chicago house built on a dramatically recontextualized vocal sample. That sample is spun out a step further: via… 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 Tyler,… More »

Das Racist – Sit Down, Man Mixtape

Plenty more on this new Das Racist .zip later, surely, if our posts on the last mixtape and this one’s trailer/tracklist and everything else we know about Das Racist are any indication. For now though we finally conquered a sluggish download rate spat by a server buckling under the strain of many downloads by a… More »

Panda Bear, Teengirl Fantasy @ Governors Island, NYC 9/11/10

A set of photos from Panda Bear’s #neverforget 9/11 show at Governors Island, where the views of Ground Zero and the light tower memorial were crisp and clear, and the sounds were dominated by the hazed dance of Teengirl Fantasy (one of 40 favorite new acts), Portugal’s Gala Drop, and of course all that Noah… More »

Teengirl Fantasy – “Cheaters”

The Memoryhouse remixing Oberlin duo Teengirl Fantasy’s debut full-length 7 AM is out this September. Closer “Cheaters” is a fun overlap of gauzy electronics and soulful gospel vocals. Think of it as a hipper version of Primitive Radio Gods’ “Standing Outside A Broken Phone Booth With Money In My Hand.” Or a later, poppier versio… More »
