October is going to begin in a rather epic fashion. Not only do I get to see my favorite trip hop and electro-gaze band headline the Fox Theater in Oakland on October 5th, but that very same band, Phantogram, will be dropping their eagerly anticipated new album THREE the Friday after the show! It’s going to be exciting hearing the new material live before the album arrives. We have, after all, already fallen hard for so many tracks revealed off of THREE. And I have a feeling the costumes, lights, and stage persona prepared for Phantogram’s new tour are going to be over the top imaginative. You’re Mine is Sarah and Josh’s latest treat from the LP, an abrupt throbbing pulse of glitchy soulful trip pop. If you haven’t ordered your copy of THREE yet, snag it here on iTunes.

French producer Mandeh first caught my attention several months ago with a mellow and chill soother named Clear Mind, on which he teamed up with sublime vocalist Velvet. Today, he goes solo on Often, an instrumental ambient house track that will send you flying across the most beautiful vistas and diving under the most magnificent oceans with its cinematic expansiveness. Meditative and profound, weightless and fluid, this is the perfect song to space out to when you need a moment of quiet and peaceful introspection. Often is interlaced with hints of chillwave Tycho and a touch of downtempo Boards Of Canada. Download for free, here.
