WIN WIN – Waster

February 18, 2015

How WIN WIN has not become an international sensation at this point in their career is a bit of a travesty in my book. This trio of already well-established producers XXXChange, Ghostdad, and Chris Devlin have actually been around since 2011, but it’s just in recent months that they’ve signed to the awesome label Arts & Crafts. And to go along with that huge news, they’ve put out two fantastic new singles to celebrate the occasion. The absolutely gnarly B-side “Waster” is quickly becoming one of my favorite tracks of the year as well. And as they continue on their voyage to conquer every genre in existence, it’s no surprise that they flat-out nailed it when it comes to this groovy lo-fi, psychedelic rock anthem. Their highly anticipated 3rd LP is set to drop sometime this year, and I can only hope this is going to be the one to finally put these guys in the international spotlight.

Man Without Country – Oil Spill

January 22, 2015

Man Without Country’s excellent sophomore record Maximum Entropy is one we’ve been anticipating for quite some time now. Three or so years after they won us over with brilliant tracks like “Puppets”, this budding UK duo has harnessed that same creative energy to put together one of 2015’s first exceptional records. And while singles like “Laws of Motion” might be the ones to draw the broadest audience, it’s the lush, entrancing beauty behind a jam like “Oil Spill” that we simply can’t stop coming back to. If the rest of 2015 sounds even half as good as this, it’s bound to be quite the epic year.

Alekesam – All Is Forgiven

January 12, 2015

Here to get us back on our feet after a few-week hiatus is California-based duo Alekesam. They are coming off the release of the first single to their upcoming sophomore LP, and man is it one exceptional jam. “All Is Forgiven” is most-inherently a soul tune that hinges on a smooth-as-hell bassline, some great vocals, and that ever-so-lovely recurring vocal sample. There’s definitely an element in this that reminds me a lot of the UK group Jungle as well. And with the release of this awesome new track, Alekesam has definitely got our attention as one of the most exciting emerging acts coming into 2015.

Spirit Faces – Cloudplay (feat. BUOY)

December 5, 2014

We’re especially fond of Spirit Faces’ new track “Cloudplay” for plenty of reasons, but none more so than its sheer originality. I’ll admit after one listen this song didn’t fully translate for me. But after a couple more goes, its inherent beauty became abundantly clear — and BUOY’s absolutely lovely vocal segments sure don’t hurt either. And what becomes more evident with repeated listens is Spirit Faces clear-cut vision for this song. This Australia-native is still just getting his feet wet as a producer, but if a tune as wonderful as “Cloudplay” is just his starting point, it’s scary to think where this emerging act might be with a year or two under his belt.

MLHLND – Clothes Off

December 2, 2014

It might just be us, but the releases over the past few weeks have been less than stellar. It didn’t help that one of our most anticipated records of the year, TVOTR’s Seeds, was a letdown in every sense of the word. But even besides the big names, it just feels like we’re working our way through bland record after bland record lately. That’s why we’re grateful for MLHLND’s wonderful debut EP coming through to end this painful dry spell. This Sydney-based singer-songwriter, with the help of acclaimed producer Joel Ford (Ejecta, Ford & Lopatin) have come up with quite the brilliant synth pop jam in “Clothes Off”. At it’s core this is most definitely an R&B tune, but what we love about MLHLND is the way he and Ford subtly fuse all sorts of genres together to create one ethereal whole. And while we can’t help but make comparisons to acts like Autre Ne Veut and Shy Girls, MLHLND’s fresh take on the genre is sure to garner plenty of attention from audiophiles across the globe.

The M Machine – Over/Love

November 12, 2014

It seems like The M Machine is constantly pushing the limits of their sound with each new release. That’s why I wasn’t surprised to hear them once again venture outside the box on their new Just Like EP. The whole record is great, but when it comes

to the blissfully fun “Over/Love”, we just can’t seem to get enough. And while there’s a playful, lightheartedness at its core, this astonishingly beautiful track can have more than just a superficial impact if you’re willing to let it. This San Fran-based three piece features some of the best electronic producers in the business, and while they’ve already achieved some worthy acclaim since their 2011 debut, we’re confident this amazing new effort will boost The M Machine brand to even greater heights.

Novo Amor – Callow

November 11, 2014

When it comes to the somewhat newly emerging falsetto-folk genre, the last couple of years have showed a huge influx of acts determined to be the next Bon Iver. And while Bon Iver is inherently a one of a kind for talent for us, there are a few budding names out there that most definitely are worthy of your time — especially if you share our sentiments about Bon Iver. If you follow this blog regularly you might have seen one of our previous posts introducing the UK’s Novo Amor. And If you’ve yet to jump on his debut Woodgate, NY EP we suggest you start there, but today’s post is all about his fantastic new single “Callow”. And like all of Ali Lacey’s, aka Novo Amor’s tracks, “Callow” is yet another warm, heartfelt ballad with some strong emotional undertones that resonate long after the fact. All that seems to remain for this future star is a debut LP which we can’t help but hype up as one of our most anticipated folk releases….well ever.

Korallreven – Death Is Not For Us

November 4, 2014

Korallreven’s 2011 debut helped me to realize that synth pop can come in many different shapes and forms. There’s something abstract, something inherently refreshing about their approach to the electronic pop genre. And it’s fair to say that this record was one of those that helped me to understand and build upon my own always-expanding musical pallet. So you can imagine my excitement for this week as we see Korallreven return for their highly awaited (3 years, to be exact) sophomore LP Second Comin’. And while I might be a bit biased, this is easily one of the best records I’ve heard all year — starting with the absolutely brilliant opening track “Death Is Not For Us”. So be sure to take some time out of your day and submerse yourself in this dreamy, infinitely unique record that’s sure to be on repeated listening here for quite some time.

Bear’s Den – Think of England

October 28, 2014

We’ve been high on Bear’s Den since they so graciously came onto the scene last year via their excellent Agape EP. And after another spectacular Without/Within EP released earlier on this year, this London-based trio wasted no time putting out what has become a highly anticipated debut record. Based on their already-impressive catalog, there weren’t many concerns on whether or not this record would live up to the hype, but to save you any suspense, it turned out absolutely as good as we had hoped. See for yourself on gorgeously uplifting tracks like “Think of England”, where the grand, trumpet-fueled finale is more than enough to get even the most casual listeners a bit emotional.

Willow Beats – Chess

October 22, 2014

Our newest favorite addition to the already-booming Melbourne electronic scene is the uncle-niece duo known as Willow Beats. Their new water EP has got some compelling tracks on it, but none more so than that of “Chess”, where the surging bass and swirling apreggiated synth grooves flow seamlessly alongside Narayana Johnson’s enticing vocals. But what’s most impressive on this track is the creative use of percussion, featuring everything from water droplets to fluttering bird sounds to God knows what else. What we do know is that these two have got something quite special going with Willow Beats. And all that’s left to fully establish themselves in the Aussie electro scene and beyond is a debut LP which we
