PREMIERE: Rugby - "Treasure Racer"

Back in April of last year, we shared a video from the experimental pop outfit Rugby called "Bag of Bones." The romantic, black and white video was the second to come off their full length Worldly Wise, but now we're presenting you with their third. 

"Treasure Racer" is the opposite of Rugby's former video, aesthetically. Beautifully hued pastels, animation and dance scenes accent the duo's playfully poppy, upbeat tune. The video was filmed in a documentary style by Rugby themselves, incorporating footage from a family vacation of theirs at the Outer Banks. As for the track, "Treasure Racer" is based off a poem by one of the members, where the scuba diver from the '90s computer game Treasure Cove goes on an ocean adventure with the cartoon Speed Racer.

The whole "Treasure Racer" package is fun, lighthearted and perfect for summer. View the new video below.

See Shannon Entropy Perform Their Debut Live Tonight

 Shannon Entropy popped up on our radar months ago after we fell hard for their Tamale EP. The way the band, consisting of Libby and Jesse Hamlin (guitars, vox), David Hickey (keys, vox), Roman Buermann (bass) and Kevin Wilbanks (drums), mingled elements of math rock, psych and shoegaze on their EP made their sound easily addicting, but their official debut takes their mastery to a whole other level.

Out There Ideas dropped on 6.16 and is the summation of years of songwriting and refinery, building up on a foundation of tracks from deep within the Hamlins' arsenal. A brooding dejection that flows through the album, from the orchestral string intro that opens the album, to dark rock tracks like "VVitches" and album closer "The Ballad of Mustin Park," with Hickey's vocals echoing a tender croon along with it. 

The band will be joined by art pop of Sheers, Mood Beach's synthy grooves and some indie-psych from The Wild War as part of their album release show tonight at Holocene. What better way to spend a hot evening than by chilling out with a bill of great acts. Stream the album to become even more acquainted with the Out There Ideas tracks before the show.

Cruel Youth assists on holywater's debut track "Hush"

Though we've seen quite a few musical icons make headlines in the fashion world *coughKanyecough*, it's quite rare to see someone from fashion make the switch to music. Enter holywater, a photographer, fashion curator and the head of creative collective Virgin Gold Cult, who is now also making her foray into music under the same name. And not content to simply get her toes wet, she has dove in head first with "Hush," a moody, yet upbeat collaboration with Cruel Youth. Over the track's party-ready instrumental, Teddy Sinclair of CY sings with fiery passion, trying to rekindle an old flame that seems to have burned them both out long ago. "Hush" is a very promising start to holywater's musical career, and is hopefully only the beginning of exciting collaborations in the future. —Henry Solotaroff-Webber
