The story of Dylan Moon’s Only the Blues unfolds with “Hope Dog,” a showcase for the LA-based musician’s Lydia Davis–esque ability to move listeners incrementally through entire worlds. The clip, directed by Ellie Tremayne, is an animated lament for time wasted and a testimony to the resilience of the world that moves around us.

Craig Leon revisits the extraterrestrial origins of civilization on Anthology of Interplanetary Folk Music Vol. 2: The Canon. Picking up where the pioneering electronic albums Nommos and Visiting (Anthology of Interplanetary Folk Music Vol. 1)left off, The Canon traces the imparted knowledge of alien visitors as it spread from Africa across the ancient world. Co-produced and featuring vocals by Cassell Webb, the pair engage a sonic pallet familiar from Vol. 1, updated with ecstatic contemporary sound and synthesis, creating a propulsive, exploratory album of cosmic lore and speculative anthropology.
Anthology of Interplanetary Folk Music Vol. 2: The Canon is out May 10, 2019 on LP, CD, and Digital formats. Learn more, and pre-order at the shop ~
Helado Negro shares “Running,” the third offering from his upcoming album This Is How You Smile. “Running” follows recent singles “Pais Nublado” and “Please Won’t Please,” leading us further down the road to Roberto Carlos Lange’s sixth record.
“‘Running’ is a poem. In it, I’ve buried sentiments and personal histories. Most of it is just for me and some for you,” says Lange. “The song started as a voice memo recording I made while on a trip to Mexico City in 2016. I was waiting outside of a restaurant to eat dinner, and I was feeling awkward and anxious, so I decided to be still and listen to everything around me and come up with a melody to sing into my phone.”
Director David Merten paces through the gentle spaces of “Running” in his video for the single. “I intentionally shot and edited the video with a frenetic pace to counter the mellow vibe of the song. The video concept was based around trying to outrun the past, while repeating it. Running in circles with no true end to the journey,” says Merten.
Beside Herself collects the dream music of Michele Mercure’s self-produced and distributed albums, offered in scarce analog editions between 1983 and 1990. The co-release from RVNG Intl. and Freedom To Spend, is available on all formats on November 9, 2018. Pre-order here.
