PREMIERE: Los Cumpleaños dazzle on experimental debut “Agua”

New York experimental pop outfit Los Cumpleaños subvert expectations on new EP Agua, making for an exciting, thoroughly novel release that modulates between styles conventional and avant-garde (and back again). While each of the extended play’s four tracks finds its footing a heavy Cumbia rhythm, heady synth leads and expressive brassy fanfares quickly fill in the space, lending a psychedelic atmosphere which, combined with double time segues, create an ecstatic, joyful energy throughout the effort’s roughly 23 minute run-time. Moreover, Los Cumpelaños synthesis of elements old and new enables electronic experimentation, while retaining elements of traditional Colombian music, in a manner that feels both contemporary and classic — more importantly, it’s an EP that’s nearly impossible not to dance to. Recommended for fans of artists like Sun Ra, Flying Lotus, Animal Collective (or anywhere in between), stream our premiere of this rousing release below. Photo by Brennan Cavanaugh

Grace Ludmila takes no prisoners on new track “Hollow”

It’s hard to tell who’s the subject of Grace Ludmila’s rage on new track “Hollow,” a punk-influenced indie takeover wherein the artist admonishes all who think they can put her in a box. Much of Ludmila’s lyricism over the the song’s four minute runtime uses a variety of dialectics to determine, more so, who the artist isn’t rather than what she is — lyrics such as “I’m not your therapy, don’t hand your trauma to me” and “I’m not on a movie screen, don’t project your shit on me” seem to direct their anger towards both listeners who may claim to have Ludmila “all figured out,” or critics who think they can ascertain her true motivations through circumstancial evidence. In the end, however, Lumdila’s series of first-person statements serve as a kind of manifesto on the self, a laundry list of metaphors and proclamations that do a much better job at telling you who she is than whatever bullshit observations I’ll type up here — on that note, stream it (loudly) below. —Connor Beckett McInerney
