Pictureplane’s new album Thee Physical is out soon, but here’s a taste of one of the album’s finer cuts, a duet with sing Zola Jesus. The album’s a fantastic raved-out listen from start to finish, one you should definitely keep on your radar.

New Love

Last year saw the formation of Former Ghosts (Freddy Rupert, formerly of This Song is a Mess But So Am I, Jamie Stewart of Xiu Xiu and Nika Roza Danilova aka Zola Jesus) and the release of their excellent debut Fleurs. This fall they’re releasing a second album of tortured yet vaguely danceable tracks entitled New Love. I’ve been in love with the following song since I heard the demo version, and still am.

Former Ghosts – New Orleans

Check out the video for the song over at Pitchfork.tv
