  • UK artist East India Youth (aka William Doyle) shares a new digital EP today, remixing highlights from his sophomore full-length Culture of Volume, out earlier this year on XL. Blanck Mass and Yosi Horikawa each remix the track “Manner of Words” and Truss Total XTC remixes “Montage Resolution.” Stream it all below, and then check out Doyle’s KEXP in-studio session here, and check out his Midnight in a Perfect World mix here.

  • Fellow one-man project Mutual Benefit (aka Jordan Lee) shares a song for the holidays. Stream his take on the Christmas classic, here titled “Have Yourself a Merry Lil Xmas,” below. Lee is currently working on a follow-up to his 2013 full-length Love’s Crushing Diamond on Mom + Pop Records, and will embark on an east coast tour with Deer Tick in Spring 2016. [Stereogum]

  • Last week, you got to hear Björk discuss the track “Stonemilker,” off this year’s album Vulnicura. Today, she shares the Stonemilker app, which offers an immersive 360-degree virtual reality experience of the music video, which was shot on location in Iceland by award-winning director Andrew Huang. The app is currently only available for iOS; check it out here. Re-visit the video, in its less-immersive state, below: [Pitchfork]

  • It’s a Christmas miracle! For the first time in nearly 20 years, siblings Ray and Dave Davies of legendary band The Kinks appeared on stage together. Maybe Mother Davies had something to do with it, but the brothers reunited last Friday night on stage in London for a performance of the 1964 single “You Really Got Me.” Watch below, and let’s hope the holiday spirit reunites them again soon.
