AIMES - On Holiday (Official Music Video) 

This just premiered over at Brooklyn Vegan:

AIMES’ On Holiday Out Now on Dither Down

AIMES is the production moniker and musical alter ego of Alabama born, Brooklyn resident, Aman Ellis. His music is psychedelic at heart, provoking hints of new-wave, italo, and cosmic disco. Lush synths and washed out vocals juxtapose big kicks and silky bass lines. The self-dubbed “Space Pop” explores vast sonic territories, keeping a close affinity to other-worldly psychedelia and interstellar weirdness.

"On Holiday", his latest single and Dither Down debut, comes ready for the party - not only with it’s celestial original, but also a trio of remixes from ROTKRAFT, FUTURE FEELINGS, and SARE HAVLICEK. The result is the soundtrack to a party in the stars, the sort of pulsating blissed out romp, that you can see the denizens of Liquid Sky partaking in, if they were magically and cosmically transported to where the aliens were partying. It’s 80’s Pyramid Club cum Berliner after hours rave, unapolgetically decadent. This, is the best kind of head music.

Orthy - E.M.I.L.Y. 

Directed by Eli Welbourne (of Silent Diane)

Out January 28. 2014 on Dither Down Records.

Being in love is rad. When you’re deep in it, all you want to do is share that feeling with the world. That’s exactly what Orthy has done on the E.M.I.L.Y. EP, his second musical missive and testament to his wife. The four songs on E.M.I.L.Y. are the resulting work of months of writing and recording at the couple’s home in Austin, TX. Drawing on their mutual love of all things house music, power pop, and new wave, E.M.I.L.Y. plays out as the soundtrack to the couple’s history. Continuing with the message of his debut EP Sueños, the songs on E.M.I.L.Y. are steeped in the timeless tableaux of youth, life, and the carefree confidence love allows.

Released on NYC imprint Dither Down, E.M.I.L.Y. also boasts a remix by Greco Roman’s own Baio, aka Chris Baio of Vampire Weekend.

In lieu of a real Holiday card, I made you this lil’ disco edit for Christmas… Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everybody! Celebrate Tonight! -Tim from DD
