VALLENS – TENNESSEE HAZE (VICE PREMIERE)


VALLENS exclusive world premiere of TENNESSEE HAZE on VICE.COM.

“Vallens, who are influenced by Twin Peaks and recorded their album with a former member of Psychic TV, I was blown away — But name-checking aside, Vallens is actually good. The music is shoegazey, complex, and textured—don’t listen to it because it’s cool, listen to it because it’s a good song. Then buy their new album on Hand Drawn Dracula, a label that continues to be both stylish and full of substance.” ~ VICE.COM

 

ROLEMODEL – UNTIL (feat. Praises) Premiere


ROLEMODEL premiere their new track “Until” featuring Jesse Crowe of BELIEFS / PRAISES off the group’s forthcoming EP, Claire (available now in our HDD STORE).

“The music of Rolemodel is often described as “dreamy,” “hazy,” “ethereal” – the list of adjectives with nods to the subconscious go on. This mood defined the pop-meets-shoegaze project’s 2013 full-length, Before Then Was Now, and continues on “Until,” an intoxicating new track” ~ FLAVORWIRE
