This just in, from Pitchfork… our very own Daniel DeBlanke (ROBOTANISTS / WESTERN BELLS) is going on tour with White Sea this month (tour dates below). Go see them and buy the new record!
White Sea is Morgan Kibby, member of M83 on Saturdays=Youth and Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming. Her debut LP In Cold Blood is out May 20 via Crush Music/Songs. She’s already shared “Prague”; that’s “Future Husbands Past Lives” above. Find her upcoming tour dates below.
Here’s what Kibby said about the album in a press release:
“This record couldn’t have been more self-reflective or personal if I had tried. I took many cues from Prince, Donna Summer and countless films to hopefully impart a deeply moving and almost visual experience for people when they listen.”

Daniel and I just teamed up with AFI again to write a song called “Dream You” for the short film, SPLENDOR (written/ directed by Eric J. Yandoc).
A dramatic short set in the world of aerial performance and dance, SPLENDOR is a story about love, loss, dreams, and fears. But above everything, it is a story about hope… the hope to witness those sublime moments of splendor, and still be surprised by it all.
Check us out in the trailer, and look for the film at festivals this year!
