VIDEO: Josh Pan and X & G 'nowhere'

"nowhere, no air, no heir..."

The setting of the 'nowhere' video will be familiar to some, home to an infamous scene from the movie Kill Bill.  Josh Pan and frequent collaborators X&G envisioned a video showing the chaos of our world but focused on the deeper, universal language of music and the hope that grows from it.  The video is directed by Liam Underwood, and it's absolutely stunning and at times a bit shocking.

Madou: 'Nowhere Else'

Madou is the Belgian duo of Jochen Sablon and Vincent De Boeck.  'Nowhere Else' is a beautiful blend of electronic, indie and soul sounds.  OWSLA's NestHQ program is the perfect place for a newly created project to debut their unpredictable music.  The laidback sound is perfect for welcoming summer, and it's going to make Madou a name to watch...

Hundred Waters: "Particle"

Hundred Waters have released a new song, and quite sudden at that.  "Particle" was released just over an hour ago with the band sharing the album art on Instagram in conjunction with the release on major platforms.  It's been a while since their last releases, The Moon Rang Like A Bell: Remixes and "Show Me Love" with Skrillex, Chance the Rapper, Moses Sumney, and Robin Hannibal.  The wildly unpredictable Hundred Waters catalogue has led the way for "Particle" and hopefully for a third album.  Download "Particle" free at Hundred-Waters.com or get it here.
