Brooklyn post-electro trio Win Win – comprising Alex Epton (aka producer XXXchange), Chris Devlin and Ryan Sciaino – are set to release their second record, Double Vision, October 16th on Vice Records, but now you can check out the LP in its entirety. While the album still pulses with traces of the group's bass-driven, dance-floor ready origins (first single "Salt Days+," for example, or the steady synth thump of "Birdgun"), it confidently moves toward alternative rock on the riotous second half of "Birdgun," sparse tropicalia on "Landlopper" and simple classic pop on "Deadhorse Bay."

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
