Radar Recommends w. 42

This week Radar recommends a new song from shooting star Yung Lean, a haunting new single from Phoenix Martins, and a short fashion film by Fabien Dubois.

Yung Lean feat. Kreayshawn – Marble Phone
In his latest single, Sweden’s brightest young hip hop talent Yung Lean has teamed up with no less than American rapper Kreayshawn. In the track, entitled Marble Phone, the lo fi, ethereal soundscapes of Yung Lean and his Sad Boys Crew has been accompanied by trippy beats and the high pitch, cocky voice that has become Kreayshawn’s trademark. Listen to it below.

Wes Anderson – The Grand Budapest Hotel Trailer
Following last year’s Moonrise Kingdom, Wes Anderson’s new film The Grand Budapest Hotel is set to hit cinemas next year. Starring some of Wes Anderson’s favorites, like Jason Schwartzman, Bill Murray, and Owen Wilson, the enormous cast also includes names such as Ralph Fiennes, Edward Norton, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Jason Schwartzman, Jude Law, and Tilda Swinton. The film recounts the adventures of Gustave H, a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars, and Zero Moustafa, the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend. Judging from the newly unveiled trailer, it seems to be just as brightly witty, eccentric, and sophisticated as you can ever expect from a Wes Anderson film. Watch the trailer below.

No Coda – Numbers
The past few years there’s been a whole string of excellent pop bands emerging from the small industrial city of Sandviken, with the likes of YAST, Simian Ghost, and Aerial. This week, Sandviken-hailed four play No Coda made a strong debut with their lo-fi inide pop track Numbers. Listen to the song and watch the video below.

Phoenix Martins – Sideways

Fabien Dubois – Lilith
With his short film Lilith, French director Fabien Dubois presents a new and experimental take on fashion film. Poetic, dreamy, and highly unsettling, the film evolves around a revenge story between two former lovers, starring Solweig Lizlow as the devouring heroine Lilith. Watch it below.
