Their new album, Cosmic Logic, is a heady brew of dub, kraut, minimal house, disco and pop influence all rendered in the inimitable Peaking Lights fashion.
Recorded by the band themselves in a couple of LA studios and then mixed by Matt Thornley of DFA, Cosmic Logic follows the outer space pop explorations of 2012’s Lucifer and 936 before that.
This time around, however, the band have gone for a more concise, lean approach - abandoning some of their psychedelic sprawl for a more pure pop experience.

MRW I receive my Loser Edition of the new King Tuff LP, Black Moon Spell.
I’ll be catching Kyle, the man, the legend that is King Tuff for my second time live at Fly Wheel in Easthampton, MA on October 11th. Seriously this has got to be the smallest, best place to see him if you’re a King Tuff obsessor like me. Its a freakin community church basement, with tiny attendance; how much more intimate a setting can you ask for? Last time I was at Fly Wheel seeing Sonny and the Sunsets, I may have passed a bottle of wine with Sonny pre-show on the church steps, then danced my ass off inside.
Angel Olsen New Track from Upcoming Deluxe Album Release
Yay new Angel Olsen track, with four total new tracks to appear appear on the Deluxe Release of her last album Burn Your Fire For No Witness onNovember 18th.
Only bummer is its a shit iTunes release. Wish artists I love would release the bonus tracks on the LP like its meant to be. Or at the very least throw them on a nice 7” or 10” after Apple gets their exclusive nonsense. I can always hope.
