U.S. Girls - Rosemary
With the ghosts of glam rock and pop crooners past as her guides, Remy’s free to play around with different personas, characters, and genders. She dreams of being Jack the Ripper in a mesmerizing cover of Brock Robinson’s “Jack”, while “Rosemary” is a yearning, sea-sick elegy for the title character’s affections. Pitchfork

Father John Misty - Nancy From Now On
The alter ego of J. Tilman, ex-Fleet Foxes. This was about to expire in my drafts folder.
“I see a lot of rampant, sexless, male-fantasy everywhere in the music around me. I didn’t want any alter-egos, any vagaries, fantasy, escapism, any over-wrought sentimentality. I like humor and sex and mischief.” Subpop

Tops - Diamond Look
Did you really need this many naked hipsters for this song, Tops? The song is already good enough. Out on Atelier Ciseaux.
Sat 1 Sep
Maribel - Pretty Nights
yvynyl: Taken with the sultry Norwegian slowgaze soundtrack, I could have mistaken this video for a Wong Kar-wai piece. Absolutely beautiful work from director Mona Fastvold. Their Reveries LP is out now on Splendour.
Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti - Only In My Dreams
Ariel has been toying with the minds of indie music listeners for what, 10 years now? On this cheeky new VHS video, he explains how love is unobtainable or why polygamy is good for you, or something. Anyway, you’ve already heard the leak. Mature Themes is definitely a keeper.

U.S. Girls - Jack
Amidst all the hype and good reviews, Jack has been the first U.S. Girls track I really liked. Is it my music taste that’s evolving, or theirs? Forthcoming single, released mid-september on FatCat Records.
