Yves Tumor shares new song/video “Jackie”

Yves Tumor was not only behind one of the most convincing reinventions of 2020 — from experimental texture alchemist to glam-rock god — but they also created one of the year’s best albums in the process, Heaven To A Tortured Mind. Today Tumor returns with another single “Jackie,” a towering space-guitar epic that builds on his latest, transformative era. Rick Farin and Claire Cochran direct the song’s music video, where Tumor battles the titular Jackie under a sky of piercing purples. Live-action anime adapters, take note.

Paris Texas share new song/video “FORCE OF HABIT”

Paris Texas share new song/video “FORCE OF HABIT”
The Compton rap duo’s debut project BOY ANONYMOUS is out May 14.

Paris Texas are an emerging rap duo from Compton with a string of promising recent singles under their belt. It all started last month with “HEAVY METAL,” striking for its instrumental’s lead guitar, as stripped down as a White Stripes demo while rappers Lousie Pascal and Felix drop lysergic bars full of flexing. We added that track to our weekly Songs You Need playlist back when it dropped. Last month we heard “SITUATIONS,” a gothy and brooding track that recalled recent Yves Tumor mixed with T.D.E, and it cemented the act as one to watch. Today there’s another new song called “FORCE OF HABIT.” It reminds me of the cult lo-fi rapper Cities Aviv, King Krule, and OutKast if Andre and Big Boi were raised on YouTube. Have a listen in the clip’s music video above, and watch out for Paris Texas’s debut project BOY ANONYMOUS, out May 25.
