If you’ve been following the site (which we assume you most certainly have) you know that we’re huge fans of Wildlife Control. This brotherly duo hailing out of Brooklyn and San Fran first grabbed our ears and hearts with tracks like “Analog or Digital” and “People Change.” They’re affection for whisky, sriracha, good music, and being genuinely good people has solidified their spot in TMN’s favorite artists for years to come.
Today we’re happy to bring you their new single, “Ages Places.” This driving melodic track features some crunchy guitar riffs, repetitious piano, and a downright dancy tempo. As with all their tracks, they blur the lines between electro pop, indie rock and jazz. And, as usual, this release is impressive, catchy and will get maintain a spot in our playlist for some time. Make sure to download this track, and if you’re heading to SXSW, catch Wildlife Control at any of these shows:

Ich R U (Justice Remix)
Christmas came early, way early. Justice have just delivered a nostalgic sounding remix of “Ich R U”, one of the latest single from German electronic super star Boys Noize of his prolific full-length Out Of The Black. Taking on most of the original filtered vocal samples, Justice simplifies the track adding doomy dark elements while still grounded to their very style.
Boysnoize will celebrate his 100th release on March 18th, marking the release of this track accompanied by a Chemical Brother remix
Back again with yet another new track this week is the British singer/producer James Blake. His newest single off his upcoming 1-800 Dinosaurs‘ Overgrown album is an airy and spacey tune that is almost multiple songs in one. Beginning with an atmospheric beat and reverberating vocals, Blake switches up the beat about a minute in to a melodic vibe and switching again by adding some heavier drum rips. Keeping the same echoing and haunting vocals that is signature to Blake’s style, this is a floating track that is quite the chill listen.
Where Can I Go?
London indie folk musician Laura Marling will release her fourth studio album, Once I Was An Eagle, in May. Today, we get a taste of that record with “Where Can I Go?”, a lovely track that starts off melancholic and wistful, exact fingers dancing over an acoustic guitar, only to later be stirred up with a vigorous, bold confidence towards the end. Whether it’s her beautiful, captivating vocals, or the loud, hearty organ, there’s a real commanding and emotional power in Marling’s latest offering and we can’t wait to see what the rest of her LP will sound like.
