“Dopamine” by DIIV // Is the Is Are (Out TBD / 2015)

This is one that I’ve been waiting for quite some time and I am in no way disappointed. “Dopamine” is the new single from the brilliant dream pop/ shoegaze band, DIIV. The band’s last release was my favorite album of 2012 - the absurdly good, Oshin. The new track doesn’t stray too far from the hazy shimmer that they band used to beautifully in the past, and that’s just fine by me as no one does it quite like DIIV. If anything, “Dopamine” comes on confident and fast, no time wasted - lean, yet dreamy and frontloaded with pretty vocal harmonies. It feels more direct and aggressive than before, but still unmistakably the work of Zachary Cole Smith and his band.

I'm in england too and it's rAINING SOMETHING FIERCE I HATE IT

Wahey!!! I’m not alone! Luckily I’m tucked in a lovely Smith & Western booth with a veggie burrito ordered, out of the cold and rain! Hehe all my love xox

“Bent (Roi’s Song)” by Diiv // Is the Is Are Now (Out 2.5.16 via Captured Tracks)

Another track from the forthcoming Diiv sophomore release and another reason that I am absolutely thrilled to hear the full release. “Bent (Roi’s Song)” certainly feels like a Diiv song, but at the same time it finds a way to weave and flow through new darker territory. There is certainly a pained and unsettling quality to the lyrics and vocals of Zachary Cole Smith, but he still manages to pull his struggles with addiction and depression through dreamy states where waves of lovely warped guitars guide the way.

-I doesn’t really\work like that man. I can’t “track down” guns.
>No, yeah just like on your computer, like…track it down. I want my old gun back.
-Your going to have to file a police report man.
(Customer looks heartbroken) >Nah I can’t do that.

“Golden Days,” one of the lead singles off Whitney’s debut album, Light Upon the Lake, is one of the most shimmering and sunny songs I’ve ever heard. Actually, the entire album fully embodies summer-y vibes. Fun fact: despite how warm the album sounds, it was surprisingly created during a very cold winter in Chicago by the duo of Julien Ehrlich (former drummer of Unknown Mortal Orchestra) and Max Kakacek (former member of Smith Westerns). Seriously, I’d be surprised if you haven’t heard of this group yet - their debut album absolutely blew up last year and is commonly considered one of the best of last summer. They are amazing! Not to mention the live show they put on, which I can verify will be great due to my experience seeing them at DC9 last year. Especially with the summer and warm weather coming up, I can guarantee that this is a performance you do not want to miss live. Not to mention how fast Whitney is growing, this may be one of the few perfect opportunities around to check them out. But at a minimum, please give Light Upon The Lake one listen-through; you will not regret it!

eruri ficlet #27: western au

western au that me and a friend came up with, and that i’ve owed her for a long time after she drew me this art :) 

we imagined that Levi was an outlaw cowboy and erwin came from the northeast originally because he wanted to explore the west, but ended up stuck in a town being the mayor or something. in here he was formerly in the army.


“I’m stickin’ you up, Smith.”

“Again, Mr. Ackerman? I must say, this is the 3rd time this month.”

Erwin raised his arms with a resigned sigh, leaning back as the tiny outlaw climbed into his lap, nudged him with a pistol, and began to frisk him. There was no short amount of groping as he did so, including a particularly harsh squeeze to the top of his ass that had him raising an eyebrow and flinching his hips in surprise.

“New pocketwatch?” Levi pulled the piece out of his coat, shoving it into his vest along with a few coins and his wallet before he wound his fingers in Erwin’s bolo tie. “That hoity toity Yankee money sure does you good.”

Before Erwin could retort, Levi jerked him down for a rough kiss. The brim of his dusty cowboy hat brushed against his forehead, slipping back a bit when Levi bent to lick at his jaw and nip at his ear.

Erwin didn’t even try to fight it; he’d given that up a long time ago. Instead, he wrapped his arms around Levi’s waist, only managing to murmur a minor deterrent when he popped open a button on his shirt.
