Poliça – “Sea Without Blue”

Have you been listening to the singles from the new Poliça album When We Stay Alive? It would be a shame to let songs as good as "Driving," "Forget Me Now," and "Steady" pass you by. So here's what we're gonna do: Listen to the new one out today, … More »

Poliça – “Steady”

We first knew Poliça as a synth-pop act, but the Minneapolis band emerged from an exploratory Upper Midwest music scene where genre rules and/or roles are even more elastic than they've become everywhere else, and they've since been swept up into Justin Vernon and Aaron Dessner's highly collaborative, cross-disciplinary 37d03d community. So of course Poliça … More »

Swamp Dogg – “Answer Me, My Love”

The great cult soul singer Swamp Dogg is 75 years old, and he's still pushing his music out into strange new places. On his new album Love, Loss, And Auto-Tune, he teams up with Poliça and Gayngs producer Ryan Olson, experimenting with digital vocal effects and synthetic sounds. That experimentation led to great things on … More »

Swamp Dogg – “I’ll Pretend” (Feat. Justin Vernon) Video

Swamp Dogg is a gutbucket-soul legend, an artist who pushed his genre as far as it would go in the '70s. The man born Jerry Williams, Jr. started out as a fairly traditional '60s soul singer and songwriter, but he came into his own when he became a wild, expressive showman, developing a whole outsider … More »

POLIÇA & s t a r g a z e – “Speaking Of Ghost”

Synthy post-punks Poliça have teamed up with the contemporary orchestra s t a r g a z e for a collaborative album called Music For The Long Emergency.
