Not many people make art for the sake of art anymore. In an age of dwindling attention spans and pop songs based on samples of what came before them, we need bands like La Dispute more than ever.
Directed by Benjamin Dabu, the Maria Jose Cabrera-produced video is, at times, a disorienting affair, flickering through fields of black-and-white with a glitch-cloaked backbone and the occasional flash of light. It’s the perfect pairing for the song, which, conveniently, you can also grab for free off their eponymous EP.

We really enjoyed the creativity that comes from our next LX featured artist; a band calling themselves --Landing. Hailing from NY, Landing falls under the category/genre called 'space pop.' Their music has sound effects of bursting bubbles and a floatiness vibe. Those are only a few descriptions that we can relate to if this is what they're calling 'space pop' music now and these days.

Aan is a fearless experimental pop band from Portland, Oregon, mixing richly textured guitars and acerbic lyrics with sugary three-part harmonies and sprawling soundscapes.

Aan tours and performs as a four piece, often turning versions of their recordings upside down. Frontman Bu watch +
