The Rosebuds

Premiere: “Esse Quam Videri” MP3 Stream

Jul 28, 2014

Next week Raleigh-based musical artists Ivan Howard and Kelly Crisp, a.k.a. The Rosebuds, will release their newest album Sand + Silence. Following the Justin Vernon-assisted cut "Blue Eyes," Under the Radar is happy to premiere a brand new track off the record titled, "Esse Quam Videri." Sand + Silence was recorded over the course of a single week at Vernon's April Base Studio in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. "Everyone in the room we were working with is such a great musician, so we'd hit record and the whole thing would just sail," says Crisp in a press release. "Everything would get done in just one or two takes, and the songs all ended up having this buoyancy to them."

Hopium

“Dreamers (feat. Phoebe Lou)” MP3 Stream

Jul 28, 2014

One of our favorite bands from last year, Snakadaktal didn't have a very long shelf life. But that doesn’t mean its members aren’t keeping themselves busy. Frontwoman Phoebe Lou recently popped up on “Dreams” a new track from Australia’s Hopium. It sounds a bit like Grimes going mainstream (oh wait, that totally happened!), full of fizzy synths, and the kind of choruses you can’t help but sing along to. Check it out below.
