Like you need an excuse to listen to this one again. Doldrums‘ monster-of-a-single “Loops” now has a psychedelic sci-fi video to accompany its delirious groove. Directed/edited by Lily X, it’s the feverish/ecstatic dream of a man living on (or in) the moon. Yep, that’s exactly what this song feels like. Glorious animation work!

You can stream The Air Conditioned Nightmare on Sub Pop’s Youtube channel. And you can buy the record from them here.

We were already giddy with anticipation about the new Doldrums record. Remember “Hotfoot”? Well that excellent first track was no fluke, because sweet merciful crap does the latest single go even deeper into pure dancefloor material. With heavily treated vocals and a huge 4/4 beat, this is Doldrums for the club. We absolutely love this meeting of worlds between his experimental juxtapositions and electro-house simplicity. We’ll be hitting repeat on this all weekend.

Countdown’s on. Doldrums’ second album The Air Conditioned Nightmare is out April 7.

Ooooh, it’s terribly exciting to hear new stuff from the ever-expanding mind of Doldrums. 2013’s Lesser Evil remains a phenomenal statement, so news of the followup makes for fantastic tidings indeed. So here’s the first single from the amazingly-titled The Air Conditioned Nightmare, an alternately cacophonous and crisply minimal electro dancefloor burner. At times sounding quite a lot like Silent Shout fave Zoo Owl, and featuring killer arpeggiator fills, it’s an addictive track. Repeated listens may be necessary.

Also, he signed to Sub Pop, good on him. The stratosphere’s where he belongs. Or maybe the ionosphere. The Air Conditioned Nightmare is out April 7, and we seriously cannot wait.

Doldrums – I Hear Music

Nice b-side from this year’s spectacular Lesser Evil, unceremoniously dumped on the Doldrums soundcloud last night. The description is our favourite part:

sean nicholas savage came to me in a dream and sang this song and i didn’t realise that it was a dream when i saw him so i told him how much i really liked his new tune and he looked at me like WTF?

Cadence Weapon, excellently reworking of one of our favourite singles from Doldrum’s Lesser Evil.
