Jeremy Zucker is back at it again with his newest song ‘all the kids are depressed’. We’ve previously featured ‘Talk is Overrated’, ‘End’, and ‘Ghosts’, and this one does not disappoint. Well, it does make it us a little sad when we internalize the song and wonder how many of us are depressed kids wondering what the hell we’re doing with our lives. I mean just today I was thinking about exes and now I’m home drinking too much. Everybody’s just trying to figure their shit out and pretend things are okay. We may be scared, but at least we’re here. What’s life without a little fear?

I think it’s safe to fathom that the majority of you have already been enjoying this gargantuan sized collaboration since it dropped on Monday. Even if so, it’s only proper we take a moment to marvel at long awaited My Life. ZHU has been teasing the track for quite some time now, and it’s been well worth the anticipation. The San Francisco native and much beloved producer has linked up with Australian psych rock legends Tame Impala on an ambient spiraling masterpiece, which features hypnotic synth arpeggios and booming house beats. Their visualizer for My Life is also deeply transfixing with a sleek Porsche traveling down a warped desert road. We’d love to live our life riding in an expensive sports car to the tune of this crisp pulsing, brassy warbling jam. ZHU will be hitting the road again this fall, check out his tour dates, here.

Celebrated future bass pioneer and influential chill trap trailblazer Harley Streten, better known as Australian production luminary Flume, has teamed up with Greenpeace to reveal some unreleased music. He provides a brilliant instrumental soundtrack to Greenpeace Australia Pacific’s stunning underwater visuals, giving us a glimpse at the horrible effects of climate change on the Great Barrier Reef. Flume’s percussive resplendence and pivoting synths embellishes this signaturely compelling piece, whilst Greenpeace’s video is both wondrously beautiful and devastatingly sad. You can sign a petition, here, in support of protecting the reef.

WENS stunned the music scene with songs like Bleed and If this year. The 19 year old singer songwriter from Los Angeles seems set on impressing us even more with every new release as she returns with Life, an intricately expansive, smoky swirling electro-R&B and soulful electropop song with her effervescent soaring, pristine pure voice on full display. The svelte mellifluous, serpentine sheer gem leaves us ever excited for her forthcoming debut EP, which we hope we’ll be arriving soon.

By fortuitous chance, we encountered an enigmatic production project on Soundcloud the other day named DIVINE. As you’ve probably figured out from following IHM in the past, this music head is incredibly fond of the dark and haunting. DIVINE’s music is just that… it’s witchy and gothy, ominous yet euphoric. In fact, this mysterious project has gone and remixed Purity Ring’s rendition of HEALTH’s Life, and I couldn’t be happier with the ghostly droning, spectral humming results. DIVINE is a fine discovery just before Halloween hits us in just over a week from now. For another taste from the project, stream Haunt You below, and revel in its glitchy pulsing, chime tinkling umbral beauty.

Southern California’s Stephen has been slowly revealing some magnificently profound opuses from his debut album over the course of the past seven months, showering us with genre defying music so powerful it leaves us deeply mired in our own thoughts for long after the songs fade away. Today, Stephen dropped his music video for passionately rousing, emotionally charged Crossfire, and its visuals are as much an examination of the human condition as is his music. Crossfire’s sonic expanse spans a spectrum of sound, including future bass, electronica, pop, soul, rock, and so much more. Its video examines some very pressing issues that we face on a daily basis. Crossfire is a stark reminder that things are not simple in this dizzying world we live in. We tend to lash out, ripe with emotion, and our actions reverberate with a ripple effect, tying us altogether in strife and tragedy. Stephen’s debut album Sincerely is due out on April 26th via Halfway House, and trust me, it’s going to be one resonating and deep experience.

I had to pinch myself to make sure I wasn’t dreaming when I first saw this remix. As someone who loves dark, industrial electronica and gothy electropop, I tend to gravitate towards music by the likes of Purity Ring, Crystal Castles, TR/ST, and Health. Today, Canadian duo Purity Ring surprised me with a remix of Health’s Life. I suppose it shouldn’t be unexpected, considering Health had previously remixed Purity Ring’s Begin Again. Life goes atmospheric and fantastical on Purity Ring’s interpretation, and most notably, Megan James layers in some additional vocals that make the song the perfect fusion of these two amazing acts. Excuse me as I go cry in the corner in joy. This is beautiful.

OFFICIAL VID: Washed Out – Don’t Give Up

July 24, 2013

Chillwave artist Washed Out, aka Ernest Greene, dropped a new video for his single Don’t Give Up. You’ll feel like you just watched Planet Earth or the Discovery Channel once you’re through with this one, I guarantee it. It’s full of bright colors and amazing shots of flora and fauna. Don’t Give Up is off Washed Out’s coming new album Paracosm, out August 12 on good ol’ Sub Pop. Out of the cuts we’ve heard from the album so far, the songs have mostly seemed similar to Greene’s dreamy, mellow synth style on debut album Within and Without, save for one super psychedelic tune very different from his usual repertoire and more akin to Tame Impala or Youth Lagoon. Don’t Give Up is one of the former. It’s vibrant and warm, as is the new video filled with life.

New Antony and the Johnsons

May 29, 2012

Wow, this is breathtaking and poignant… Antony Hegarty of Antony and the Johnsons has a new song out titled Rise. It’s featured in a coral reefs film. You can download the song for free or for much encouraged small donations at an Australian coral reef studies research site. Stream the song below and view the eye popping footage from the film. Both are beautiful enough by themselves, but combined, it’s indescribable. I just repeated it a few times.
