I’m sure we all remember Kisses, the Los Angeles based indie band who last put out a full length a year ago named Rest In Paradise. So, what have they been up to since? Well, I don’t know about the rest of the band, but Jesse Kivel has embarked on a new solo adventure under his given name. On October 6th, he’ll be releasing his debut EP, Content, a five track release that will be out on his own label New feelings (US) & Rallye (Japan). The announcement arrives with lead single LA Story, a sleek dreamy, chiffon wafting, and cool languid groover with plenty of snazzy brass and svelte cooing. Its jazzy R&B and chill disco almost feels like Damon Albarn gone Electric Guest, Washed Out, and Toro Y Moi, with a hefty helping of Bossa nova breeziness. Pre-order Jesse Kivel’s debut EP, here.

OFFICIAL VID: Classixx – Borderline

March 7, 2013

It’s been nary a coupla weeks since Los Angeles duo Classixx released an awesome video for Hanging Gardens lead single Holding On, and they already have another new one for us! While Holding On was a high energy electro house extravaganza, Borderline is much more toned down and new wave-y blissed out. It also features Jesse Kivel of Kisses! While I loved Holding On, I’m loving Borderline even more. This is great. The falsetto wailing around the 2:45 mark is almost Active Child-like and very baroque. Love.

For those that prefer the upbeat daft punk-ish electro house stuff, Holding On is still fantastic too, plus the video is so well done. Anybody know how they made it, exactly?
