stream and download the new kid trails ep

kid trailspatrick jeffords routinely finds himself playing bass guitar and looking cool in both toro y moi and painted palms, but over the past few years jeffords has also been sporadically releasing music of his own under the moniker kid trails.  his latest effort is an ep entitled out here, a decidedly complete offering in comparison to his various mixtape appearances.  while jeffords supports lush, exquisitely-produced acts in a live setting, his own work in the studio is comparatively raw.  besides enlisting the help of fellow toro y moi bandmate andy woodward to play drums and mix the ep, jeffords handles all of the chores on out here, from the squealing synths and bouncing bass lines on “along” to the poppy guitar work on “care to.”  stream and download out here below, courtesy of kid trails’ bandcamp page.

download a new mixtape featuring milo b-sides & rarities

earlier this week, rapsmith milo dropped his exquisite new mixtape cavalcade.  now, a nice little supplement has surfaced, apparently courtesy of an unknown third party.  someone took it upon themselves to compile a set of b-sides and rarities by milo and subsequently posted the file on tumblr, promising to update it as more material becomes available.  the mixtape is entitled penobscot expedition and features seven new(ish) tracks, depending on your previous exposure to milo.  it’s gotten the endorsement of both milo and hellfyre club, so i feel comfortable passing along the goodness.  download it here.
