Listen: Movement - Ivory

Following two back-to-back Best New Tracks on Pitchfork, Sydney creepers Movement present 'Ivory', the latest single from their forthcoming eponymous EP. 'Ivory' brews sentiment and nostalgia with an almost ominous, stirring drive of slo-mo piano pulses and additional production and mixing from Ilangelo (The Weeknd).

Out May 2 (Aus), May 5 (UK/Euro), May 6 (US), the four track EP sees the band touring Australia during May and June, as well as their first UK headline show en route to FOR Festival in Croatia, playing London's Ace Hotel Basement on Monday June 16th with support from fellow FOR festival artist Baio and Modular DJs.

Klaxons Unveil New Album Artwork And Stream 'Atom To Atom'

Klaxons Unveil New Album Artwork And Stream 'Atom To Atom'

British rave revivalists Klaxons unveil their subversive album art, tracklist and pumped up new track Atom To Atom, as we edge closer to the release of album #3 Love Frequency.

It's easy to forget that Klaxons have been charming hearts and minds since 2007 when they erupted into the cosmos with a then pioneering dance/indie hybrid that led to awards, glory and a trail of ravaged venues the world over. They turned darker with 2010's Surfing The Void, and the new swagger of Love Frequency tasters (BBC Radio 1's A-listed There Is No Other Time, plus Children of the Sun) shows a further evolution.



The June-released album features production from Gorgon City, the Chemical Brothers' Tom Rowlands, Erol Alkan, and James Murphy, and was recorded throughout 2013. See the tracklisting below.

Listen: Jagwar Ma - Uncertainty (Cut Copy Remix)

The Cut Copy boys remix fellow Australians Jagwar Ma, stretching their latest single 'Uncertainty' into a jacking intergalactic sparkle. A winning combination. You could argue that both acts see eye to eye with 'Free Your Mind' and 'Howlin' finding common ground in their marriage of psychedelia and dance music, paying homage to the Madchester scene.

Watch: Klaxons - There Is No Other Time

Klaxons released a new single earlier this year, the Radio 1 play-listed There Is No Other Time, and we just got the fancy new video for it. Georgia Hudson (Midlake, MØ) stepped up to the director's spot to create the nightclub meets scenic dream-scape clip! We like it.

Recommends: Haim - Don't Save Me (BBC Radio 1 session)

FOR Festival's stellar line-up is headed up by Haim, a quartet who've spent the last year eliciting not only colossal sales of their debut album Days Are Gone but also comparisons to those untouchable titans of transatlantic pop, Fleetwood Mac.

We dug out this near-perfect live rendition of Don't Save Me recorded for BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe at the tail end of 2012. If the music sounds this sunny in a darkened studio in Central London, just imagine it in a converted monastery on the balmy Mediterranean island of Hvar, Croatia. Or click here and imagine no longer.
