Tennis "Deep In The Woods" Video


(via Rolling Stone)

Single Available on iTunes Today

Try not to dwell on the fact that the trash bag being dragged across a floor in the opening image of Tennis' new video seems to be leaking blood. The band's sweet girl-group sound only enhances the creepy David Lynch-ian feel of the video for "Deep in the Woods," a bonus track from the band's new single, which is available today on Forest Family Records. (The Denver group's next album, featuring production help from the Black Keys' Patrick Carney, comes out in February on Fat Possum.) Singer Alaina Moore explains that "Deep in the Woods" is based on Shirley Jackson's novel "We Have Always Lived in a Castle." "It is the story of two sisters, devoted to each other to an extent that borders on mania," she says.

El-P "Rush Over Bklyn" Remix


(via Pitchfork)

As previously reported, El-P's gearing up to release a new album, Cancer for Cure, on Fat Possum. Now, El has remixed first single "drones over BKLYN" as "Rush Over Bklyn", mixing in a sample from Rush's "Tom Sawyer". "Rush Over Bklyn" is the first official sample-based single release through Legitmix, a platform that allows producers and DJs to legally sample music from other sources without going through a sample-clearing process. (We previously posted about a mix Diplo did through the service.) Proceeds from sales of "Rush Over Bklyn" will benefit a fund for DJ/producer Mr. Dibbs, who is suffering from liver disease.
