It’s been a great summer holiday for us here at Antidote, but we’re back to work now 🙁 Here are some of the latest new videos that we’ve pull for August so far. We’ll be back with another one in 2 weeks.
Release Date: Fall 2015
After the pleasantly gorgeous Xen last year, Arca has kept himself busy with his involvement in Björk’s heartbreak masterpiece Vulnicura. The wonky producer recently shared news of a new album in the works, expected to be out this fall. Judging from already-released tracks from this year like “Sheep” and “Vanity”, it looks like the soundscape continues into stranger territory.
I’m sure you’ve read through countless articles regarding the new N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton. Most major music publications have taken fistfuls of inspiration to paint a new picture of the iconic yet controversial rap group. Along with the new limelight shone on the men behind the music, dark clouds have also started to circle.
As we continue to find inspiration for our appearance through the latest trends from New York Fashion Week, the hippest street style and runway collections, let us not forget who the designers themselves tend to take inspiration from; the rockstar. The majority of major fashion houses have used the musically-gifted for runway shows and ad campaigns.
Kanye West shook things up this weekend by introducing two new tracks and offering the world the first taste of his sixth studio album, Yeezus. The single “New Slaves” will feature Frank Ocean and was debuted through projections on city walls around the world, onto 66 buildings worldwide. The sparse track highlights West’s lyrics, staying simple but engrossing.

Social media and the unfathomable number of music blogs have made the competition fierce for acclaim and success, but also allows the strongest to survive and proposer at a quickened pace.
