Tamaryn // Cranekiss

tamaryn cranekissBeen dropping tracks from Tamaryn since way back in hell. Noticeably as of late the feedback from the guitars have been swapped for clean chorusy seperation comparable to late 80s early 90s recordings that blessed the early half of my existence. The obvious influences are there: Curve, Cocteau Twins, The Cure, Chapterhouse and Slowdive. I am enamored of how magnificent these tracks sound. When I listen to this, I really feel like I am taking the cellophane off of a cassette tape purchased from a record store at the mall in 1988-1992. Cranekiss should not be missed!

Mylamine // Northsky

mylamine

Posted this kat’s music a while back and noticed the chill-tronic tracks keep flowing from Mylamine‘s cloud. I like the stop the record player pauses that just dial in that major chill factor for me. This is my therapy right here.

DEAD FE†US // New stylings for a new era

dead fetus

I have been majorly space caking on Flakka and therefore haven’t gotten around to posting this kat’s newer shit since a post back in 2012 which was a dapper Spell Hound remix. So much has changed since the era of the salts. There is new shit abound! Portland artist Dead Fetus is ingenious with what some refer to as sound collaging where a masterful assemblage of different sound clips results in creating something entirely new. I think of his extra long tracks as containing many miniature songs within. Particularly “Cold skin” and “Drool” are packed with all kinds of stylings whereas each time I take a listen I hear something entirely new. That is what I call bang for your buck! Who needs to write albums when you can have a singular song that contains an album’s worth of material?

Deerhunter never buckle to expectations, and I hate to derail the stream of bands you’ve never heard of for one of indie’s most beloved, but Bradford Cox is an important ass motherfucker. There aren’t tons of details but we do have an album title:

‘Snakeskin’, from the album ‘Fading Frontier’, released October 16, 2015 on 4AD.

Featuring Zumi Rosow on treated alto saxophone.

Bow Church // Delirium

bow church

 

London based Bow Church is no stranger to dark synth having worked his way out of Heretics into a more instrumental based project which flexes a cinematic/ post rave/minimal techno vibe throughout.  The remix work on the Planet Perfecto “Bullet In The Gun” track is masterful and one of my favorite newest players. I am giving this one the whirl a lot lately. I like when music is fully realized with vox, top notch electronics and a sense of completion. This is what completes me!

Artifiseer // Of Stone ♥ Of Glass

artifiseer

One of the more under-appreciated challenges of sifting through all this modern music artistry is the task of trying to determine the artist’s name. It used to be commonplace to put symbols in lieu of letters. That had its own challenges (2011-2013). The latest barrier is trying to figure out where the name of the artist ends and the name of the song begins. For Artifiseer it might have paid off because I am digging the ambient gothed out vox over an almost Icelandic backing on this track which combines noisy atmospherics, effervescent synth lines with twinged percussion.

Summer Of Haze // Dear Jessie See The Roses

summer of haze

 

Not going to piss all over the brilliance on display here. Summer of Haze is no stranger to blowing up my hell. He has a keen ear for sick ass beats that make me blow my shit every single time. They say hype cycles may change, but the seduction of dark music is forever.

Tamaryn // Cranekiss

tamaryn cranekissHave to admire the influence taken by Tamaryn straight from the playbook of masterclass shoegazers Curve. I have never fucking seen something emulate the music of my heyday so closely. This shit right here is side stepping the 1st generation shit two decades to the day making sure not to stomp all over the grave of the disbanded predecessor. Back then my tape playing ass was all over that original Curve shit so much that my Walkman sometimes ate the tape and I would have to save it using the pencil wind technique. The finest form of flattery is this!

Grimes Pulls Off Amazing Chris Gaines Style Alter Ego With New Project Pixx

639_c_w_450_h_450

There is not a living man, woman or child who doesn’t know about Grimes, one of the most celebrated german songstresses alive. Taking a page from Garth Brooks, she has just completed her latest studio EP under her new alter ego name Pixx. She really takes the baton and achieves more artistically than Brooks ever was able to with his Chris Gaines band. The music and voice are a huge departure from anything I’ve heard before from Claire, if it weren’t for the album cover we’d never had known it was her. We love both projects just the same, check out The Unstoppable Lady G in her latest video here:

Check out her 4AD profile here: http://4ad.com/news/15/7/2015/introducingpixxdebutepdetailsfallinvideo

Update 4:06AM:  Just received a call, and it was confirmed that Pixx and Grimes are not the same person.
