Remember a few months ago we launched our monthly subscription service, Boombox? Well, since then our subscribers have been hand-delivered digital albums from FIDLAR, Wavves and Polica, have been offered exclusive access to singles from Polica, Beat Club, and Smith Westerns, and have received brand new digital EPs from Neon Indian and Kid Astray before any else has even had a look in… and Boombox is only just getting started.
We have a lot of exciting stuff up our sleeves for the rest of the year, and we wanted to give you guys a taster of everything we’ve been working on (because we feel selfish keeping it all to ourselves). Head over to our Soundcloud player to stream the first installment of what will be a semi-regular compilation series from Mom+Pop, this time featuring singles from Jagwar Ma, Polica, Flume, Neon Indian, Hunters, FIDLAR, Wavves, Kid Astray, Mikhael Paskalev, Beat Club, Animal Kingdom, Smith Westerns, Andrew Bird, and Lucius. Phew!

North London’s Animal Kingdom have unveiled their new full-length, The Looking Away, out this week on Boombox/Mom+Pop. The album, produced by David Kosten< (Bat For Lashes, Everything Everything) is currently streaming in full over at Spinner. The Looking Away is the North London trio’s lush and atmospheric sophomore release that follows its well-received debut album, Signs and Wonders, a body of work that had NME describing it as “achingly beautiful celestial indie” as well as stating the band “will have Sigur Ros quivering with envy”. The Looking Away is now available exclusively through iTunes.
Additionally, the album’s first single, “Strange Attractor,” has been named the iTunes “Single of the Week”. The band’s dreamy new single, a track NYLON Magazine recently called “a whipped pop blend of atmospheric melodies and a heart-wrenching, high-flying chorus that only gets more thrilling as the song progresses” can now be downloaded for free. Directed by Ben Strebel, the video for “Strange Attractor” is a colorful and visually striking clip suitable for the song’s delicate yet hard-driving tempo. Check out the video below:
Animal Kingdom will be performing at Lollapalooza in Chicago, IL, on Friday, August 3 and Outsidelands in San Francisco, CA, between August 10 and 12. The band will be making appearances at venues across the U.S. in late Summer as well. Tour dates coming soon.
