Mild High Club's dank psych-pop debut Timeline out September 18

Alexander Brettin's debut release as Mild High Club is due next week — plan your 4:20 around this. The psych-pop salad Timeline features songs with the likes of Ariel Pink and Mndsgn, the former whom Brettin worked with in the album pom pom. You'll hear Pink along with Weyes Blood in the newest teaser "The Chat" (via Pitchfork) as buttery bass and confectionary synths wrap themselves around the lackadaisical croon of Brettin, guitars quavering with delight. It's the sweet, slow-rising narcotic you've come to expect from the jazz-trained transplant (ex-Soft Candy), whose previous list of credits also include working with Wolfgang Strutz and Salvia Plath.   

Days earlier, Mild High Club also put out the music video to another song on the album, "Undeniable". Brettin casually explores boundaries of bar and online dating with director Todd Narson in the glory of cathode ray grain. "It's about hooking up, having the balls to talk to someone in real life instead of the obscure Tinder reality," he says.

Mild High Club's debut album Timeline comes out September 18th via Stones Throw's step-sister Circle Star Records. Listen to the first single off the album, "Windowpane" below. - Ryan Mo

Video: MNDSGN, "Txt (Msgs)"

Inspired by the Nas lyric, “my mind is seeing through your design like blind fury”, and a nod to his dad's work in neuroscience, Ringgo Ancheta is the genius behind MNDSGN (pronounced ‘mind design’). He illustrates to his audience the importance of beats and melodies in his music, which we rarely hear in music nowadays without lyrics, so we tend to forget how vital every detail is; every bass hit and every auto tune that we hear in the background is what is used to create the songs we know and love. Ancheta’s work solidifies the backbone of the hip-hop beats; his most recent work is the bewitching sound of TXT. His newest release from his album, Yawn Zen, creates an atmosphere of psychedelic ins and outs while engaging his audience on a synesthesia journey. "I've allowed myself to study the absence of daily struggle and its effects, and began to subconsciously paint that vibe in the music. Yawn Zen comes from a very neutral place that we, sometimes, are too busy to realize is there." - Kayla Hay
