Dinner shares video for "Siren Song," plays the Bootleg on 10/01

Dinner, the synth pop project of Danish producer/vocalist Anders Rhedin, is a suave wanderer on the video for his latest single, "Siren Song." The Copenhagen via L.A. transplant gallivants to the night's natural rhythm with a coquettish demeanor, thinking about his pleasure-filled day as he flirts straight into the camera with his boyish, yet penetrating eyes. Rhedin is simply having fun with it, taking cues from the New Romantics who made the boys and girls swoon back in the golden age of MTV. 

"Siren Song" is taken from Dinner's recent second effort, New Work, which is out now via Captured Tracks. Get lost in his dreamy vision when he plays The Bootleg Theatre on October 1st. 




Cones are lost in love on “Whatever You’re Into”

Cones, the songwriting duo of brothers Jonathan and Michael Rosen, first caught our attention earlier this year with the winding, Laurel Canyon-informed single “Echoes on.” Since then, they’ve aimed to buck that convention with their latest, “Whatever You’re Into,” a mellow, romantic soft-rock jam that leans towards a more cosmopolitan sound. The Rosens may have taken a slightly new direction, but they’re still committed to the groove, further stretching their musical ideas rather than sticking to a fixed format.

Watch Cones perform at the Bootleg on September 28.


Raener release entrancing new single, "No Sun"

A feeling of impending dread surrounds Raener's latest single, "No Sun." The four piece (Daniel Fox, Willem Erin, Zachary Bilson, Daniel Vanchieri) fabricate intricate synth textures that repel like molecules, navigating through a vast, empty soundscape that slowly intensifies. It becomes increasingly discordant, yet never loses its rhythmic footing, as it transforms into a morass of sonic chaos that produces a dynamic aural experience.

"No Sun" is taken from Raener's upcoming EP, EP 1, which is due on October 6 via Danger Collective Records.

Phoebe Bridgers releases video for "Motion Sickness," plays Highland Park Ebell on 9/21

Phoebe Bridgers has just released her newest music video for “Motion Sickness”, and it is artistically phenomenal. Lyrically, this single has me shook with the way Bridgers adequately describes her emotions through a nostalgic story. The simplicity of her voice quiets your mind as you watch and listen to an honest depiction of her life. This single resonates a lot with me, coming from a place where you don’t feel whole: “There are no words in the English language, I could use to drown you out.” I don’t know what I love more: the creativity of Justin Mitchell's music video, pinpointing the child-like references and intertwining them with adult problems, or Bridgers's true self coming through in her lyrics. Either way, they are both beautifully revitalizing.

“Motion Sickness” is just one single off of Bridgers's debut album, Stranger In The Alps, which is out on September 22 via Dead Oceans. Catch her play a headline show on September 21 at Highland Park Ebell. - Kayla Hay


The Great Escape live up to their name on "Let Me Go Wild"

The Great Escape brings on the funk on "Let Me Go Wild." Fronted by Ingrid Andersson's chirpy yet commanding vocals, the Venice-based band feed from a miscellany of influences ranging from classic soul to sleek pop rock. "Wild" takes many stylistic shifts during its lively three minutes, touching on some neo-soul licks and brass band theatrics worthy of a grand romp. The trio wholly embraces the old in the new without resorting to shameless parody, and really, when you're basing your song's structure off of Tommy James & the Shondells' classic "Mony Mony" you can't do no wrong.
