Found these on our feed. Thought we’d scribble a few words. Here are new releases from Warpaint, SWIMM and Eyedress & The Marías …
The Apple TV+ series “The Buccaneers” premiered last week, and on the same day Interscope released “The Buccaneers: Season 1 (Apple TV+ Original Series Soundtrack).” It’s got some gems, included “Ankhas,” a previously unreleased song by L.A. quartet Warpaint, who last year released their fifth full-length, “Radiate Like This.” In fact, the soundtrack was produced by Warpaint’s Stella Mozgawa, who also lassoed two solo tracks from the band’s Emily Kokal — plus a cool but cowbell-deficient cover of LCD Soundsystem’s “North American Scum” done by Kokal and Miya Folick. Sharon Van Etten, Folick, Alison Mosshart, Bully, Lucius and Gracie Abrams also appear on the soundtrack, which you can hear in full here.
SWIMM, “Something in the Night”
From the Dept. of Wait … What? SWIMM just released a new album, “Best Comedown Ever,” in September. But they are already back with “Something in the Night,” a riffy rocker that really isn’t like anything on the album. Spencer Petersen of Sego produced. SWIMM opens for Mondo Cozmo on Nov. 30 at the Lodge Room.
EYEDRESS and THE MARÍAS, “Separate Ways”
Manila-born, L.A.-based Idris Vicuña — aka Eyedress — is a prolific songwriter, and just as prolific a collaborator. His 2022 album “Full Time Lover” featured collabs with N.E.R.D.’s Chad Hugo, Nosaj Thing, the Drums, Provoker, Vex Ruffin and more. Earlier this year Eyedress released back-to-back singles made with Mac DeMarco. Now comes “Separate Ways,” the first two two songs he’s made with the Marías. It’s typically (for Eyedress) drunk on synths and drenched in reverb; Vicuña and Marìa Zardoya trade off vocals as the songs sails dreamily into the sunset.
