Happy Monday everyone! Hope you’re doing alright, physically and emotionally. We’re here to wrap up last week’s hits, or at least what we loved. This collection has a bunch of songs included from some albums that dropped on Friday, as well as new tunes from Gustaf, Dinner and the new collaboration from Living Hour + Peel Dream Magazine. Start your week off right by reviewing what we loved last week. Have a good day!
Earlier this summer I dropped a new single and album announcement from our friend Rasmus Littauer and his Copenhagen based musical project known as School of X. I’ve been drawn into the way Littauer can take a sort of convoluted indie pop genre and give it some darkness and slick guitar work to truly give it his own spin. His latest single, “New Friend”, can be found below and offers up more of that pop goodness paired with the slightest hint of edge and grit. It’s a truly catchy little tune.
School of X will drop new album Dancing in the Void on September 24th via Tambourhinoceros.
Rasmus Littauer, working under the musical moniker School of X, is one hard working dude in the Copenhagen underground music scene. Last year he dropped his debut LP Armlockand also planned to impress us with his live show for SXSW, but then the world sort of stopped. School of X has continued making new music through the pandemic with yet another LP of new tunes entitled Dancing Through the Void coming on September 24th via Tambourhinoceros. Prior to the new album, we’ve been lucky enough to hear this new single “Feel of It”. It is a truly infectious piece of get up and move pop music similar to some of the earlier days of a band like Generationals or Fyfe Dangerfield. Check it out.
Man it’s been a crazy day in Austin, and I’m hoping to end your day of music with us by offering up something a bit more chill and relaxed to ease you into the afternoon. Imagine that, I have this new song called “Write My Name” from Copenhagen based Rasmus Littauer and his project known as School of X. Currently working as the touring drummer for Major Lazor, one can hear a bit of electronica and beat driven pop here. I’m finding it to be quite irresistible.
School of X will release a new EP entitled Destiny on November 15th via Tambourhinoceros.
