Moon Mirror heads out of her bedroom and back into her natural habitat of the forest on her latest track and video “Paradise”. The sprinkling of harpsichord style instrumentation with shimmering vox is the kind of track that we have grown accustomed to by an artist who is not afraid to shy away from the more classical styles of song structure. The somber sadness expressed within, the longing for a paradise perhaps far away from the wintry setting where one’s heart rests is a testament to the emotive sincerity of her work. I wish more artists took this approach, but then again not all artists are Moon Mirror.
This emerald of an EP comes from the emerald state from an artist with a bit of a fever for the streets. Very impressed by the darkened on point beats that just pulsate with passion and understanding of what it takes to get me up. The opener “Resistor” plays ode to the Pet Shop Boys / Ladytron in directions that the artists themselves should consider. Elements of Justice, Boys Noize, Daft Punk and SebastiAn are in there too from an influences standpoint. I like the experimental nature but I also like it very much when artists keep in mind you have to play for today and makes songs that are complete and edible by a larger audience’s listening capability. Sitemaster is very impressed with this cracker of an EP….surely you will see this mentioned again in the coming weeks.

Coming straight from Shoegazeville, Texas with this one. I like the swarming melodies these cats create with instrumentation fed through a multitude of effects while her voice swims alongside it for some rather majestic performances. The duo (James Grantham & Caitlin Craighead) captures the sound well from accounts of someone who spent much of their youth traversing the landscape on tour with some of the greats. Check out Lock & Key taken from their self titled EP – it’s a storm made in heaven.

Probably their strongest and one of the more darker tracks I have heard from MemoryHouse to date. The epic clashing of beats in the background with the reverberated instruments and the haunting voice make for a special listening occasion. This is yet another fine release taken from the Soft Hate album due out early next year. Dream Shake came out a littler earlier and its quite great too.
Liking the tendencies on this track and the audio visual is impeccable as anything goes in this dream state of blissful artistic incarnation. If ambient is your game then this producer has your number. If chilling is your recreation then this is your soundtrack.

The atmospheric electronics provided by these Late Night Hysterics lends a rather fresh perspective to the electronic music art form. Nothing quite like this has ever graced my ears. Majorly ramped up synths are peaking and screaming like the shoegaze that split my eardrums decades ago but all done so eloquently this time with smoothed out synths. An endless dream awaits with each listen.
Memoryhouse is working on something monumental with their upcoming “Soft Hate” album. Some of the teasers and then this first video entitled Dream Shake offers a promising premise. Will their album be out in time for Sitemaster’s Best of 2015 list?
A full length courtesy of Lozk has the speakers punching out decibels of dark electronica, experimental, and worldly sounds coupled with folk music and random babble. It is a bold statement in the midst of genrefication of the modern scene. I am compelled to place this one on my regular player.
Molly and I go back a while. She is always killing it with her creatively audacious audio visual escapades which seem to calibrate my soul to tolerable proportions upon viewing. With showcases like these it gives me an excuse to go on. But I won’t piss all over her latest masterpiece. Enjoy.
I miss dancing like I’m fucking in Cats, have’t left the safety of my sanctum for many weeks, listening to music that implies that I have a life makes me feel like something is going on, like I’m living. I can’t support the naming of this project so call this guy whatever you’d like, but did some nice fresh takes on 80s synthwave. I miss the drama, I miss feeling anything.
