Junior Boys have released 'KISS ME ALL NIGHT' EP today, and it contains some of their best jams yet...
Taking one more lap before the summer's out, this EP follows critically acclaimed album Big Black Coat. Junior Boys' Jeremy Greenspan has also worked on the album Oh No with his collaborator JESSY LANZA and the But Wait There's More EP with Borys, both of which influence this new EP.
Now, just in time for an extended US tour in September and October as well as additional European dates, Junior Boys return with this brand new EP. It starts with two extraordinary retro-futuristic tunes - 'Yes' and 'Baby Fat' - plus a proper recording of a live favourite: their cover of John Martyn's 'Some People Are Crazy'. It's rounded off by the Paisley Park infused title track 'Kiss Me All Night'. Kiss Me All Night is out digitally today and will be available on limited vinyl in September.

Gold Panda has just unveiled a new John Roberts reworking of standout 'Good Luck And Do Your Best' track "Chiba Nights"
"I'm a big fan of John Roberts' work and I have nearly all of his releases so I was very flattered to hear he liked GLADYB and agreed to do a remix. The remix uses a similar sound palette to his new album "Plum" which was just released on his own label Brunette Editions and I highly recommend. It was nice to chat to him and find out that we share a fondness for Japan and the Akai MPC2000." - Gold Panda

He’s a gifted musician who is mostly self-taught, having abandoned formal study because it was draining the life from his work. He’s a self-described disciple of Phil Collins. What he is not, however — despite multiple press reports to the […] READ ON
The story of Gold Panda’s journey from an acclaimed debut record to now, as he prepares to release his third full length album, is an entirely circular one. Hailing from Chelmsford Essex in the UK, in the six years since the release of his genre-defining debut album ‘Lucky Shiner’, the electronic artist most comfortable with the moniker Derwin Panda spent the subsequent years splitting […] READ ON
The band’s debut album is intent on dismantling the ideas western listeners have about popularized Tuareg music. This new wave of Tuareg musicians sound very different to the desert distortion that accompanies groups like Mdou Moctar or Group Inerane. Instead, it finds a calm and passionate soul, provides sumptuous slow burners, and a complexity of composition that hasn’t been demonstrated […] READ ON
“It took me 15 fucking years to feel brave enough to do this!” Joel Wästberg, the Swedish producer behind the eccentric sir Was alias, confesses. “To reach the point where I could let myself do this was a long struggle. But once I felt less scared, it was kind of easy. It just came out, like: ‘This is the sound!’”
