They’ll be joined by a cadre of local artists painting murals, as a nice homage both […]

[MIX SERIES] ALAYA – ALAYA. ISSUE 01 [FREE DOWNLOAD]

ALAYA

A distant land where the rivers of rhythm never run dry and the melodies in the wind are only the most soulful and powerful. That’s where I want to be. Where the combination of noises are vibrant with life, with tone, with volume. Luckily, this place exists and we’re going to take a sonic expedition […]

[DARK POP] Real Lies – North Circular (Local Hero Remix)

fggg

Solitude sinks its teeth into my stomach. It’s got me twisted up in knots, shooting glances at my gut–not trusting it knows how to get me back to humanity.  So, I pacify it with whiskey.  Shot after shot across every bar stool I can find in Thailand.  And I sit in silence and stare at […]

[INDIE] LUH. – UNITES

maxresdefault

For I am the opposite of you As one we balance two After all that we have been thru All I need in this world is you LUH. – the new project from ex-WU LYF frontman Ellery James Roberts and Ebony Hoorn – are right. ‘Unites’ is a simple love song. But within its simplicity, […]

[DARK INDIETRONICA] Little Daylight- My Life (Golden Pony Remix) [FREE DOWNLOAD]

Little-Daylight-My-Life-2014

It’s my life, but I couldn’t let anyone in it even if I tried. I’m always the asshole, the one bad link in a daisy chain that grows arms and starts cutting at all the linkages to his left and right until he’s blowing around in the wind. I don’t really care if I survive, […]

Light-Painting-Fashion-dresses-5

STATE OF SOUND is a feature on The Sights and Sounds where we select new electronically focused bands/artists (either Soundcloud/Facebook followers < 3000) and bring their best songs to light. Getting traction on blogs can be a pain in the ass if you don’t already have a connection in, but we happen to think there’s […]

[DARK POP] Flight Facilities-Two Bodies feat. Emma Louise (HNNY REMIX)

flight-facilities-two-bodies-feat-emma-louise-official-video-youtube_thumb

Just because we’re fucking doesn’t mean it’s some exhilarating experience. It doesn’t mean I’m just waiting for the cumshot either so our time together can start to circle the drain. This misnomer that when we touch it’s a rush of endorphins is inane. Sex as electricity or some shit. We’re two humans, two bodies with histories […]

[DARK INDIETRONICA] Young & Sick- Ghost Of A Chance (Act!on Mix)

Young-Sick-album-cover-608x608

Only here to watch you slay me. Moonlight shines through onto that little space on the floor in the kitchen where you first made me cum. I can look down at it now, here as I prepare for battle, and smirk. I remember the ways our bodies practically melted together into the oak floor. I recall […]

[DARK INDIETRONICA] Icona Pop- Get Lost (Kasbo Remix)

130827-icona-pop-cover

Throw down the windows, inject your veins and the throttle with the power of Redbulls and leave this goddamn town. I’m a big fan of shouting godspeed to myself as I rush out of a town with darkness inundating interstates. Everyone I know is just turning down their sheets, and by morning I won’t turn […]

[PREMIERE/LP REVIEW] MAU- Safari Entrepeneur + FREE DOWNLOAD OF 1 Track

MAU - Artwork

A muted disaffection, a cold affair with the world where we whisper sounds of our discontentment into tumblers of scotch–that’s the sound of our generation. We are a disconnected generation. We look at the world and it stares back placidly as it shrugs–it’s forgotten who we even are. And we sit in our bedrooms and bar […]
