Last year Perera Elsewhere dropped her debut album on FoF Music, a compelling 13-track EP of ‘off-kilter pop’ laden with vocals and minimal production that both seem heavily influenced by a yin and yang of moody and dream-like states. Now the Deluxe edition of her venture has dropped, this one containing all the original tracks as well as a brand new selection of remixes from the likes of Shlohmo, Benjamin Damage, Kyoto, and more. Each track from the album got a revisit, and cleverly enough FoF have put Shlohmo’s remix of “Light Bulb” up for stream on Soundcloud. Considerably more urgent sounding than the original, Shlohmo’s remix takes the track to his signature dark place – this time with a grinding repetition and siren-sounding synths.

Frank Ocean, Mick Jones, Paul Simonon & Diplo – “Hero”
Converse’s “Three Artists. One Song” series kicks out another stacked-as-fuck, scorching jam.
Tame Impala: “Stranger In Moscow (Michael Jackson cover)”
With news of a new live EP coming up for Record Store Day, it doesn’t seem like Tame Impala is anywhere near close to releasing a new album. Putting out an excellent Michael Jackson cover is a great way to appease the masses.
Childish Gambino: “What Kind of Love”
Want more of Gambino’s latest album, Because The Internet? CG let loose this free download of swooning bonus track, “What Kind of Love.”
Oceaán: “Turned Away”
Another throbbing, utterly unpredictable taste from Manchester producer Oceaán’s upcoming self-titled debut EP. Think James Blake’s Overgrown on a mind-altering substance or two.
Phoenix – “SOS In Bel Air (Ariel Pink’s Krystal Bamboo Remix)”
Mr. Pink gorgeously slows Phoenix’s roll with his take on “SOS In Bel Air.”
Shlohmo & Jeremih – “No More (Boots Remix)”
Producer Boots got snowed-in in February, and decided to add a verse to Shlohmo & Jeremih’s “No More.” Long story short, it was a good choice.
Jeremiah Jae – “Survival (Feat. Oliver the 2nd)”
“Survival” is the composed first taste of Jeremiah Jae’s soon-to-be-released Good Times mixtape.
Lydia Loveless – “Verlaine Shot Rimbaud”
On the country-twanged “Verlaine Shot Rimbaud,” Lovless expertly emotes a tale of power and struggle.
D/C – “Devil On My Shoulder”
D/C ‘s “Devil On My Shoulder” sounds like something a classically trained James Blake might make. Brilliant.
Elbow – “New York Morning”
Elbow may have dropped their sixth LP a few weeks back, but its atmospheric standout “New York Morning” is still spinning strong.
Fucked Up – “Paper The House”
Everybody’s favorite “band you can’t name-drop on the airwaves” is back—and in top form, too.
La Sera – “Losing To The Dark”
“Losing To The Dark” finds Katy Goodman at her most pummeling, aggressive, and refreshing state yet.
Party Dolls – “Indigo”
Party Dolls is a self-described “semi-obscure supergroup” made up of members from Crooked Fingers, The District Attorneys, and Tedo Stone.

American singer-songwriter Banks has released the official film clip for her track ‘Brain’, directed by Barnaby Roper.
The nearly four minute film clip adopts an ominous darkness throughout its entirety, along with the occasional burst of red lights and kaleidoscopic effects, all framing a rather sexual Banks – reminiscent of her past work on the videos for ‘Warm Water’ and ‘This is What it Feels Like’- as the focus of the video.
The 25-year-old Banks has been making consistent waves in the music industry since her arrival in 2013, with an impressive track record of songs and collaborations with the likes of T.E.E.D and now fellow LA local Shlohmo.
You can hear more of Banks’ EP ‘London’ here.
Check out the film clip for ‘Brain’ featured below.
[catch BANKS tomorrow night at the GvsB x YT x HypeM SXSW showcase]
Aquí está el video de “Brain”, el gran track de BANKS producido por Shlohmo. Esperamos ver su álbum debut este año. Enjoy.
