Atlanta-based Manchester Orchestra is hitting the road in support of their third album, Simple Math, which was released earlier this year. The White Sea remix of title track "Simple Math" is dreamy and atmospheric, and addresses the growth the band experienced when recording their latest album. Frontman Andy Hull explains that the track is "about the questions that come with starting the voyage of trying to find some truth. Part of that continued life voyage is about making and performing music that honestly reflects how we are growing." Simple Math is out now, and you can stream the White Sea remix of "Simple Math" here.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
