Your Silver Man // Nightlands’ Dave Hartley Announces New Album, ‘Oak Island,’ Listen to First Single Today

The good news keeps on coming! Dave Hartley brings you his sophomore album under the Nightlands moniker. Titled Oak Island, it’s the follow up to Forget the Mantra, released in 2010. Dave uses the Nightlands name as a vehicle to further understand art through the analytical process. He engages a side we don’t often see portrayed in his other endeavors, namely his role as bassist in The War On Drugs.

The new album boasts of ten pops songs, stories that take the listener on a scientific journey through the human experience. Today, the silver-tinged Hartley shares with us the first single and album standout, “So Far So Long.” Come – to space we go. Enjoy the track above or at Pitchfork, where it premiered this morning. Oak Island is out January 22, 2013.

Dave’s got a few shows coming up in Philadelphia. See all dates below!

WATCH // Little Scream Performs “Your Radio” at Pitchforktv, Reinventing “Canons” at MTV Canada

Laurel recently paired up with BOOOOOOOM and MTV Canada for their Made of Imagination series.

WATCH // Nite Jewel & Julia Holter Collaborate on New Song & Video

Perhaps you could say this was a long time coming. Nite Jewel and Julia Holter have finally come together to collaborate on “What We See” for Dublab’s new Light From Los Angeles documentary compilation. You wouldn’t say they’re interchangeable, but the two women meld pretty perfectly, creating a song that touches on each of their best qualities. Premiering today at Pitchfork, the “What We See” video was directed by Delaney Bishop and Jose Wolff. Watch above.

Nite Jewel heads back out on tour at the end of this week. Dates include Portland’s Music Fest NW & Austin’s Fun Fun Fun Festival. See all dates and ticket links below.

WATCH: Exitmusic’s New Video for “The Night”

Premiering on Pitchfork yesterday, Exitmusic’s new video for “The Night,” off their recently released Passage, is now available for your viewing pleasure. The video follows a lost-looking Aleksa through an eerie, suburban house. Director Will Joines tells us, “For me, when Aleksa mentioned that song was about finding a loop hole to cheat the the separation of physical form, I immediately got excited about showing someone consumed and transformed by something greater than them self. Setting the video in a very ordinary environment seemed the perfect way to underscore this bizarre conversion.” Watch above!

“It’s (Passage) audacious and ambitious, twisting lyrics about depravity and loneliness into shared anthems meant for overcoming both.” – Pitchfork
