Pantha du Prince has just released another new video from his new album The Triad releasing this Friday via Rough Trade Records. This comes hot on the heels of “Frau Im Mond, Sterne Laufen” released back on May 9th. The “In an Open Space” video is seriously trippy and Pantha du Prince’s warm, minimal techno pulls you deep into his imagination.

Emmanuel Elone: People who complain about the current state of pop music do not know who Grimes is. “California”, besides being a solid pop tune, has colorful and quirky electronic instrumentation that blend perfectly with Grimes’ child-like vocals. To be sure, her lyrics are still nothing particularly of note, but one has to accept the musicianship and musicality of her work at the very least. “California” may not be reinventing pop music, but it is revitalizing it.

Chris Ingalls: A wonderful late-night chillout vibe. I like the combination of digital bleeps and organic percussion. The bass line is simple yet irresistible. And it earns that six-minute run time. The song goes through a number of different yet subtle stages that never seem forced. [8/10]
Chris Ingalls: This one threw me for a loop. At its core, it’s basically a simple, sloppy rockabilly rave-up. But it seems filtered through a very punk sensibility: it’s like rockabilly by way of the Ramones (which may very well be how Butler discovered the genre).

And the payoff is worth it. [8/10]
Darlingside‘s most striking feature is those pristine, crystalline harmonies that the four-member band spin like the finest of weavers. They seduce and pull you into their stunningly beautiful musical sphere. In fact, the harmony singing is so good that Darlingside may be today’s Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. Their latest single/video is for “White Horses”, an utterly gorgeous song that will have you hunting down their recent release Birds Say.
