Loveskills Premieres video for “Chanel” via Village Voice, No Shame

Screen Shot 2015-01-29 at 12.06.24 PMLoveskills has premiered the video for “Chanel”, on Village Voice. The video – directed by Yuichi Uchida, who also worked on the “Fine Lines” video – is, as the Voice describes, “woozy and endearingly hazy”, and features Latiana Blue, running in and out of the narrator’s imagination. Loveskills, Richard Spitzer, explains:

“The story is like an unobtainable dream. I’m trying to get a clear vision of this girl but the memories are too abstract and too hard to find.”

You can check out the video below, and the full premiere – including an interview with Loveskills – at the Village Voice.

“With the addition of funk synths and a deep rippling bassline, The Twelves transform the alternative original into a hazy ’80s synthpop dream. Does was featured on the band’s recently released Night EP, available now on iTunes here and Spotify here. If you’re digging this, be sure to check out more from João Miguel and Luciano Oliveira, aka The Twelves, here.”




Loveskills ‘Pure’ EP OUT NOW via No Shame

loveskills-pure-epNew York City’s electro-pop wizard Loveskills has officially released his new EP, Pure, today (11/4), via No Shame. After months of re-watching the music video for “Fine Lines” (premiered on Vice’s THUMP) and keeping his Smashing Pumpkins cover “Luna” (debuted on Prefix Mag) on repeat, the full record is finally available to be heard.

If you want a taste of Pure, PopMatters is streaming the record IN ITS ENTIRETY, at this link. Aside from just the stream, there’s a really great writeup. In it they say:

Pure EP, his latest offering, is replete with falsetto vocals, sensuous synth arrangements, and plenty of wicked beats to boot. Beginning with a cover of the Smashing Pumpkins’ “Luna”, the EP is a short but nonetheless clear declaration of Loveskills’ sonic MO.”

Pure is the followup to Loveskills 2013 Multiplicity EP. Spitzer described the album to Ghetto Blaster as, “an attempt in creating pure music that is also accessibly pop, centered all the material around that innocent naive inner day-dream voice that somehow still exists. That’s where a lot of my music stems from.”

Check out the album art and tracklist below, and be sure to keep an eye out for some more eye candy from Loveskills in the coming weeks!

Loveskills premieres “Fine Lines” music video on THUMP



Loveskills has premiered the new single and music video for “Fine Lines” on THUMP by VICE! The track is featured off the upcoming EP ‘Pure’ which is slated to hit stores on November 4th, 2014 through No Shame.


The official preorder for the new EP will drop next week on October 21st, 2014 on iTunes, keep your eyes peeled for that launch.

Rich recently spoke out about the new release and had this to say about the writing process, “I kept my ears away from new music even if it sounded amazing and especially if it was closely related genre-wise. Even if I liked what I heard, I would keep everything away in order to give my own music space to be itself.”

The six-song EP kicks off with a cover of Smashing Pumpkins’ “Luna” and proceeds with five pure, undiluted, entirely blissful tracks of the classic Loveskills sound.

Loveskills will also be performing live next week during the CMJ 2014 Music Marathon. You can catch the band live at the No Shame official showcase on Wednesday, October 22nd at Cameo Gallery in Brooklyn. Click here for full details and RSVP to that event.

Black Taxi Releases “Final Days” Lyric Video via No Shame



Black Taxi have released the first single and lyric video for the song “Final Days” featured off the brand new LP release ‘Electroshock Death Grip’!

Click here to view the exclusive premiere on Vents Magazine.

Pick up the new LP from BLACK TAXI below:

Black Taxi is Ezra Huleatt, William Longyear Mayo, Krisana Soponpong, and Daniel Gould. Electroshock Death Grip was recorded at No Shame Labs in New York City, NY and produced by Black Taxi and Jacob Wagner. It is ten tracks in length, and is the band’s 3rd LP release. Final Days is the first featured single off this LP.

The band describes the new LP as “introspective and retrospective in its lyrical content, and futuristic in its production.” Moog synths, fat trumpet lines, and jangly tambourines pay their respects to 1970s-era funk and disco records while deep, punchy drum production gives the album an ultra-modern feel.
