I made my way through Downtown LA’ s Chinatown and into what appeared to be my own personal, dusty, hipster hell– only to be delighted by a gentle and bemustachioed crowd, Goldenvoice’s usual top notch accommodations, and surprisingly chest-ratting bass.

Simian Mobile Disco announced today that they will be releasing a 4-track EP titled A Form of Change on October 2nd via Wichita Recordings accompanied by a fall/winter North American tour that will kick off here in Los Angeles at FYF Fest in Downtown Los Angeles September 1st and 2nd. The tour will feature a new live set from James and Jas, and if it’s anything like what we’ve seen before, we can expect a fresh, innovative experience. And while on the topic of innovation and progress, the title track of the upcoming EP has been made available for stream today, and it’s a sophisticated, intricate production — joyfully ambient for nearly 3 minutes before blossoming into an ethereal Deep House groover. Stream “A Form of Change” and find tour dates below. √+Continue Reading
