Stereogum Monthly Mix: February 2013

It’s finally come to this: The first straight-to-Spotify Stereogum Monthly Mix. It’s the end of an era, and I’m a little sad about it! But it’s a necessity in 2013, and one that will serve this feature well. In theory, over the past three years, this mixtape has functioned to spotlight and memorialize the month’… More »

Young Dreams – “First Days of Something” Video

Norway’s Young Dreams are set to release their debut full-length Between Places on Modular early next month. This is the third video from that platter, and the third directed by Kristoffer Borgli.

by:Larm 2013 Highlights: Van Dyke Parks, God Seed, Anna Von Hausswolff, More

After three years of experiencing non-Nordic winters, Stereogum made a triumphant return to the land of Olso cold and classic, icy, YouTube-able slip-and-falls last week as I made the transatlantic trek from Brooklyn to Norway for by:Larm 2013. Actually, in 2010, Scott and Brandon’s trip was marked by debilitating weather; last week, Oslo’s snow wa… More »

Young Dreams – “First Days Of Something”

Like many of us, the Norwegian indie collective Young Dreams is yearning for summer. The group’s energized, orchestral single “First Days Of Something” follows their mellower “Fog Of War,” released last year. “First Days Of Something” anticipates the warm months ahead as well as Young Dreams’ debut album, Between Places, scheduled for release on 3/5… More »

Stereogum Monthly Mix: December 2012

It’s the last Monthly Mix of 2012, sweet people. We did it! It hasn’t been an easy run over in this corner of the blog, to be honest. This year saw an ever-diminishing store of free MP3 downloads, as artists increasingly preferred promoting their songs in a streaming fashion, via Soundcloud and its ilk. Which… More »

Young Dreams – “Fog Of War (Lemonade Remix)”

You know that a label believes it has a good thing on its hands when a remix EP is commissioned, featuring three redux champs, for a band’s debut single. In the case of Modular and Norwegian young guns Young Dreams, it seems like a wise enough investment. Based on what we know of them, anyway,… More »

Stereogum Monthly Mix: November 2012

Guys, it’s Friday, and there are used plates with smeared cake-frosting laying around, with empty booze bottles accumulating on our desks and a general pall of whiskey fumes hanging over the office. While that is some people’s idea of holiday magic, for us, it’s the signifier that it’s someone’s last day. It’s a sad thing. More »

Young Dreams – “Feels Like We Only Go Backwards” (Tame Impala Cover)

Young Dreams are a sprawling Norwegian indie-pop collective with a gift for high drama; we’ve already posted their “Young Dreams” and “Fog Of War” videos. And now they’ve recorded a cover of “Feels Like We Only Go Backwards,” the dizzy psych-rock single from their much-loved Modular labelmates Tame Impala. The Young Dreams version of the… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

Considering that New York City — the place where most of the indie label/publicist/writer infrastructure calls home — spent the entire week in a state of Deep Impact disaster, it’s remarkable how little Hurricane Sandy affected the endless march of bloggable music items. Maybe we didn’t see quite as many new music videos this week… More »

Young Dreams – “Fog Of War” Video

Young Dreams are a Norwegian orchestral pop collective, and their new single “Fog Of War” takes the sonic hallmarks of chillwave (faraway synths, pubescent sad-kid yelps) and turns them grand and epic, blowing them out to Arcade Fire proportions. In the song’s brand-new video, we learn what happens when you leave two French teenagers home… More »

Young Dreams – “Young Dreams” Video

Young Dreams is Modular’s latest signing out of Bergen, Norway, a city that’s established a little bit of a reputation in the indie pop scene thanks to bands like Razika. Today they share their first single, “Young Dreams,” which comes paired with a somewhat creepy video, where I think the implication is that the kids’… More »
