♫ Listen: Infinity Dance Complex – These Rules

This post was originally published on this site

It’s that special, frosty time of year when suddenly my urge to go out and do things on the weekend completely evaporates, and all I can muster anymore on a Friday night is staying in, playing Smash, and catching up on all the great music that came out over the past 12 months. But just because it’s December doesn’t mean we’re done finding new gems yet; just take These Rules, the lovely new album from Infinity Dance Complex. The project of Matthew Anderegg from Philly post-punk squad Mothers, These Rules flirts with icy pop moves laden with Casio-lite beats and bouncy synth lines, wearing accessibility like a charm until you realize that suddenly Anderegg’s dropped us into a deliriously chopped up sample stew. Infinity Dance Complex pulls all their disparate sounds off with a breezy sense of calm, serving up a cozy medley of upbeat indoor pop as peculiar as it is delightful.

These Rules comes courtesy of Nino Tomorrow (the label side project of Palm guitarist Kasra Kurt), and you can pick up a tape or digital copy right here! Check it out below, and if you’re going outside, make sure to bring a sweater:

Next month, the jittery Philly math-poppers and onetime Band To Watch Palm will release their sophomore album Rock Island. We’ve posted the early tracks “Pearly” and “Dog Milk,” and now they’ve also shared the nervous, twitchy, oddly melodic “Composite,” which sounds like an indie-pop jam that’s been torn apart and then glued back … More »

25 Great EPs From 2017

This post was originally published on this site

Over the last couple years, we’ve seen the rise of the “mini-album,” an inexplicable term that is, I guess, supposed to signify some kind of intentionality and artistic vision that an EP simply cannot capture. It’s a designation that’s been rightfully met with ribbing derision, but it’s an interesting development that speaks to some larger … More »

Palm – “Dog Milk”

Last month, the psychedelic art-rock group Palm announced their sophomore album, Rock Island, with lead single “Pearly.” The album’s still a couple months out, but today the Philly-based Band To Watch have shared a second track from it, “Dog Milk.” It’s a sprawler, clocking in at five-plus minutes, which really lets them dig … More »

Palm – “Pearly”

We named Palm a Band To Watch in 2015 based on the strength of their live performance and inventive debut album Trading Basics. Since then, the band has been touring the US exhaustively and signed to Carpark Records. Palm’s sophomore album, Rock Island, will be released in February of next year and it follows … More »
