Listen to Majical Cloudz “Love Soul”

By Robby on Friday, February 14th, 2014

Along with “Savage“, “Love Soul” was culled from the sessions from Majical Cloudz’ 2013 essential, ‘Impersonator‘, though, as with “Savage”, “Love Soul” stands alone as vital as any of Devon Welsh and Matthew Otto’s songs. Featured on a stunning new website and in partnership with Spotify, listen to ‘Love Soul’ here.

The website allows the viewer to explore and experience them in an interactive manner, go ahead and download “Love Soul”, along with these original, animated GIFs, directly from the site as part of the full experience.

Take “Love Soul” with you and dig in to and/or revisit ‘Impersonator‘ today.

 

And, happy Valentine’s day.

By Patrick on Friday, December 13th, 2013

Fans will already be familiar with “Savage,” a staple of Majical Cloudz sets over the past year. They have now recorded it in the studio and made a quick music video. Watch it at the link above.

Coming 12/3 : A Lower-Than-Low Priced Compilation LP Of Matador 2013 Highlights

By Gerard on Tuesday, November 19th, 2013

OK, we missed Black Friday by a few days, but if that means ONE LESS TRAMPLING this holiday shopping season, it was totally worth it.  On December 3, we’re releasing a limited edition, one-time pressing of a $5.99 list LP , ‘It’s Been A Business Doing Pleasure With You‘, featuring 9 songs from (most of) our 2013 releases. In addition to album tracks from Chelsea Light Moving, Majical Cloudz, Body/Head, Lee Ranaldo & The Dust, Iceage and Kurt Vile, there’s a live version of Queens of the Stone Age performing “If I Had A Tail” at the 2013 iTunes Festival (Roundhouse, London),  Savages’ “City’s Full” from last summer’s KEXP session, and Yo La Tengo performing “Before We Run” in those same KEXP studios.

We don’t have any copies for mail order, sadly, but hopefully you’ll find one at your favorite record store after they’re done sweeping up all the broken glass, blood, etc. from Black Friday.  If you prefer, you can order a digital version of the comp. right now at the Matador Store.
