WATCH: New Sun Airway Video for “Close,” Pre-order Soft Fall on Limited-Edition Purple Vinyl

Directed by Ewan MacLeod, the new Sun Airway video for “Close” was shot in the furthest southern wilds of Australia. It’s a stunningly beautiful piece set on the beach and features actors Anthony Guilbert and Chloe Boreham. Constructed around the idea of a soft fall, MacLeod writes “it’s kind of a hallucinogenic love story or perhaps it’s the story of what happens after two lovers drown.” Watch the video above or at Pitchfork!

Out on October 2, Soft Fall is now available for pre-order at both SC Distribution and iTunes. The physical pre-order boasts of the most gorgeous colored vinyl we’ve yet to see; it’s translucent purple with a fittingly detailed label. Order fast – the limited-edition run is available for the first 300 copies.

In addition to the video, Jon Barthmus shares a new Spotify playlist he recently curated. Titled I Can Feel It But I Can’t See It, the mix features a wide variety of artists from ELO to Patsy Cline to Daft Punk. Stream the list below.

“The two things that most often make me come back to certain songs again and again are either timeless melodies and orchestration or unique and innovative production. Most of the songs in this list hit both of those categories for me. This mix is pretty polarized into new/old by that dynamic, causing oddities like John Talabot butting right up next to Patsy Cline, but maybe that’s not as far a stretch as it seems.” Jon Barthmus

The Luyas Announce New Album – “Animator,” First Single Available for Download


What a great day to be a Luyas fan! The group announces the follow-up album to 2011′s Too Beautiful To Work. Titled Animator, the new record was created through a particularly difficult time following the sudden death of a close friend. Through both the introspection caused after losing someone and the act of joining together for the sole purpose of music, Animator – an album that is “intuitive, seductive, moody and textural,” came to be. Animator is out on Dead Oceans October 16, but you can listen to the first single, “Fifty Fifty,” below. Premiering earlier this afternoon at Pitchfork, the song is up for 1,000 free downloads – after it will continue to be available for streaming!

There’s something almost supernatural to the feel of the record. “Animator is supposed to be some weird resuscitation. The animator’s job is to create the semblance of movement in things that cannot move themselves. The musician’s is to make us feel like something is happening with a sound,” explains singer and multi-instrumentalist Jessie Stein.
