Exclusive: Onomatopoeia Playlist Series: Vol.6 – “Online Dating"

Wow it’s been six months since I last shared a new playlist, it was October, almost Halloween and the long winter was just about to get started with us. Well It’s late April now and we are starting to hit those much needed sunny days so it only seemed right I buckle down and finish this extended edition to make up for the long gap with something to play on those outdoor adventures and road trips.  Online Dating is what I’m calling Vol.6 in the series and its an eclectic eighty-eight song long mix including five and a half hours of music from the past, present and future, spanning a wide range of genera’s that's sure to have a little something for every internet personality. 

I will not be posting any of the track information here or in the metadata normally attached to the mp3 files. If you would like a copy of the full track list you can contact us via email and we will gladly send it your way.

Video: Clarence Clarity – “Buck Toothed Particle Smashers”

The new Clarence Clarity LP, No Now is without a doubt one of my favorite records from the last couple of years; I've already made push to get it heard by more people, and I hope my efforts thus far have worked on a handful of you at least.  "Buck Toothed Particle Smashers," is the latest memorable tune from the record to get the video treatment; in the clip a collage of VHS projections act as the breeding ground to a series of figures who jerk and jolt to the glitchy rhythms provided by the singer/producer. 

Video: HEALTH - “New Coke”

Fuck yeah! I love me some HEALTH and the L.A. band have finally announced Death Magic, their first studio album since 2009's Get Color. The record will be released on August 7 via Loma Vista and with the announcement comes a new song and video for "New Coke.” As with most things HEALTH the experience can be a tense one, the clip was directed by the bands own John Famiglietti and the song checks off all those boxes that make HEALTH one of my favorite bands, ghostly vocals, interesting rhythms, thoughtful breakdowns and more. 

Death Magic will see some studio engineering from the Haxan Cloak, Mars Volta engineer Lars Stalfors, and longtime Kanye West engineer Andrew Dawson, I’ve started counting down the days till this drops already.

Video: San Fermin – “Jackrabbit”

San Fermin returns to the scene tomorrow with a new LP by the name of Jackrabbit. I was a big fan of Ellis Ludwig-Leone’s last offering a couple years back, the record actually made my year-end list and Jackrabbit continues down the same chamber-pop path laid out in 2013. Ellis is still the acting writer/composer for all the material but the eight-member group will be joining for the tour that kicks off this Thursday. The title track is definitely a highlight on the record that I’ve played to death in the last couple weeks and should please those who fell in love with previous offering like “Sonsick.” In the video that was released today vocalist Charlene Kaye runs through the hillsides with two K9’s in hot pursuit.

Video: Liturgy – “Quetzalcoatl”

Brooklyn’s Liturgy dropped a video for “Quetzalcoatl” off their recently released Thrill Jockey effort, The Ark Work. The visuals are super trippy and have an epic nature to theme even though there is no traditional narrative happening, it’s pretty hypnotic and fits the bands sound and overall esthetic very well.
