NEW MUSIC: Darkstar “News From Nowhere” LP Out Now
“like being pushed off a skyscraper and discovering wings…altogether beyond words” – The Quietus
Here’s yet another outstanding record from an already-exciting year for new music. In a notably singles-focused era, it is increasingly refreshing to hear such a markedly cohesive collection of stunning music. News From Nowhere bends the boundaries of psych-pop and escapes apt categorization, although fans of Grizzly Bear and Animal Collective will surely notice and hopefully appreciate the prevalent influence. If you like music that flows, tap into this.
You can pick up a copy of this beaut of a record here and also check out a couple of live videos down below.
