TheThursday Bundle: 011917
TheThursday bundle, just in time for the weekend with artwork inspired by TheWeeknd’s second mixtape, ‘Thursday.’ A mouthful, I know, but luckily an earful, too!
POOLCLVB - What You Want
With the release of POOLCLVB's ‘You + Me EP’ -- "an ode to newfound love and romance" -- the Sydney producer proves he knows "What You Want," what I want, what all the paramours of the world want. Further, he decorates it seamlessly with punchy synths and playful melodies resulting in a body of work that moves the body.
Glassio - Search & Destroy
If only we could clone alt dance-pop duo Glassio (made up of Sam Rad and Charlie P), the world would be a better place. Proof: Listen to "Search and Destroy,” what the boys describe as "a happy accident that came shortly after election night. The vision then became clear to re-contextualize the aggressive Vietnam war song (a cover of the Iggy Pop original) with a soulful and melancholy spin to reflect the current feeling of uncertainty and fear across the globe." See. They get it, searched it, destroyed it.
Diamond Pistols ft. Ian Everson - Run Away
Sometimes you just want to "Run Away." Other times, dance. For me, there's rarely an in-between. That said, standing at the crossroads of Diamond Pistols Blvd and Ian Everson Ave, there's no need to feel conflicted or move elsewhere. You made it. Best of both worlds. Tighten your laces and stretch the soles of your souls.
DYAN - Of Love
Well, if you doubt that Earth isn't a beautiful, breathtaking, blue and green marble, DYAN and their music video for "Of Love" should straighten you out. From the first drool-inducing frame to the last, you'll get all the feels you did the first time watching Planet Earth, you'll remember how lucky we are to experience and live among such beauty, and hopefully you'll finally fucking recycle.
Draper - Jealous Feat. BB Diamond (Chimes & LVTHER Remixes)
Now then, let’s imagine producers LVTHER and Chimes in a boxing ring. In one corner, LVTHER has me wanting to lure unsuspecting subjects to a dance floor, turn the room upside down and raise the volume until the bass shakes out everyone’s wallets and all other valuables. In the other corner, Chimes is giving the original a fresh new take with purer intentions in an everyone-is-invited-to-join-this-conga-line kind of way. But this isn’t a competition – it’s a one-two punch that conquers different genres successfully while giving a nod to Draper’s possessive original.
