Jai Wolf will release his sophomore album The Cure To Loneliness on April 5th via Mom + Pop Music. We previously shared his first new single off the album, “Lose My Mind” which showcased the artists dive into the realm of the dream pop genre. This is continued on his new single “Your Way” which sees Wolf team up with Jackson Phillips of Day Wave.

Phillips, who has already become a staple of the dream pop genre, compliments Wolf’s newfound sound perfectly, with a slightly more electronic influence that you’d expect from Wolf that reminds a bit of M83. It’s a combination and pairing that works well for both and sounds excellent.

Enjoy a listen to “Your Way” below.

In 2017 Gin Blossoms celebrated the 25th anniversay of their breakthrough album New Miserable Experience with a tour that saw them play the whole album in it’s entirely. They and their fans seemed to enjoy the experience so much that they expanded the tour for a run of dates this year, which also tied into the release of their new album Mixed Reality last year.

On February 11th they brought the tour to New York for a sold out performance at Bowery Ballroom. Along with the album, the band played a selection of other songs from their catalog, as well as a cover of Radiohead’s “Fake Plastic Trees.”

Our photographer a href=”http://www.killian.work/”>Killian Young was there to capture photos from their performance, all of which can be found posted in the photo gallery below, along with the setlist.

It’s not every year single people look forward to Valentine’s Day weekend but here we are gearing up for a great one in Mana Wynwood, Miami for iii Points. Self-proclaimed “Festival of The Alternative Mind”, iii Points stands out from the crowd – which is important to do when the market is completely over-saturated and line-ups all looking rather similar. iii Points is the perfect niche blend of hip-hop and electronic to keep everyone dancing and bobbin’ well into the late night (the curfew isn’t till 5 am!).

Every day is stacked with heavy hitters and a great underground undercard. As someone who attends festivals quite frequently, there is so much unknown that I am giddy at what will be learned and loved by the end of the weekend. Tyler, The Creator, Beach House, SZA, James Blake, A$AP Rocky & Erykah Badu lead the line-up with exciting subs to follow. The Internet, Pussy Riot, Toro y Moi, James Murphy (!!!), Yaeji, Blood Orange, Khruangbin, Godspeed You! Black Emperor & DJ Koze create an eclectic grouping sure to cater to anyone’s musical tastes/needs. Smerz is a Norwegian duo with this dark feel. The second I heard their song, “Because”, I was instantly hooked. Looking forward to seeing these ladies kick off a great Saturday evening.

Not only does iii Points deliver with a great music line-up but they also provide world-class art installations. Max Cooper + Architecture Social Club will be bringing to life a light sculpture that looks as if it could be a giant hologram but instead made up of thousands of lights mapped to immerse the viewer in conjunction with live audio. Another incredible snag by the festival is trailblazing & iconic feminist artist, Judy Chicago. ICA Miami will be bringing Chicago’s installation, “Atmospheres” to the festival via video presentation. “Atmospheres” is a performance piece that uses smoke and fireworks to “feminize” the natural landscape. Originally, these performances took place between 1968 and 1975 throughout California and the Pacific Northwest.

With so much music and art to look forward to at iii Points not to mention the great weather forecast make sure you stay hydrated, put on sunscreen and bring your dancing shoes. It’s going to be a great weekend.

Chris Lastovicka has returned with a brand new remix album entitled Fortune Has Turned (Remixed)’ containing two highlighted singles ‘The 7th Chapter of Job’ and ‘The End of Tyranny’. The remixed album is set for release via Ahari Press on April 12th.

He brought on mixer Jeremy Allen to take the original raw recordings and bring out something else in them with new power and creative liberty that is on full display on the remix for the provocative “The 7th Chapter of Job.” The dark textures and moods are fully brought out and linger on your mind long after you press play. It’s the sort of material that you sense could find a fitting placement in a serious film’s score, with real power and sense of mood.
