April came around, and 1st Bath got released, Avid Dancer‘s superb debut album, which I loved from the spot (review here). It didn’t take me more than one run through to know that this would be among my top 20 maybe even top 10 albums of 2015. So, I was super[…]
Electronic music is going many different ways: some is optimized towards danceability, some merges back into rock music and some reaches for ever more abstraction, like Laurel Halo’s work. Princess Century’s debut album on the other hand, while named Progress, goes musically it rather back to a time, when electronic[…]
Daylight savings is over, but there are some things that help pulling you though the dark time of the year. The build up to SXSW for example that has started with the first round of artist annoncements. We will follow closely, so expect a lot of discoveries during the next[…]
If you immerse yourself in a multi-day music festival like CMJ or SXSW, you’ll find yourself sooner or later at a point where everything blurs and you don’t really feel anymore if it’s day or night. Then you want to see a band like Dilly Dally from Toronto, who wakes[…]
Upon learning that UK band Cheatahs wouldn’t be able to make it to the US right in time for New York’s CMJ 2015 festival, I was pretty bummed. They were scheduled to play five shows. Just imagine! Bathing in big, fat, loud guitar driven sound (shoegaze anyone?) for not just one[…]
Maybe The Moon is a duo from California, who, according to their bio, had a love-at-first-sight moment in December 2012. Since then they also make beautiful pop music, for example their track Washout with a chord progression that keeps you on the edge. It’s our Song Pick of the Day.
Until next Tuesday, basically the only chance to hear anything from Courtesy Tier was to see them live – not counting amateur fan videos of their gigs on YouTube or the just recently added band video for Childish Blues. Yet, finally next week, they will release their debut EP Little[…]
We all know songs where lyrics and music are in stark contrast with each other, and FinGRLess Lady by Def.GRLS is such a song and our Song Pick of the Day. The music is all warm and fuzzy, recorded in deliberate lo-fi style, making me think of The Beatles (sic!) especially[…]
Earlier today I wrote about Grimes and her stunning live performances, but she’s not the only one who masters the fine art of electronic solo live performances: Elaine Davis from Chicago, who goes as Spaces of Disappearance on stage, combines cool electronics with a powerful, soulful voice. We saw her[…]
Actor may have found the most un-Googleable band name ever. Her management company is from the U.K., so I assume she’s from there to. That’s all I know. Anyway, it’s a great track and it’s our Song Pick of the Day.
Letters To Nepal, a Brooklyn via Siberia three piece with musical roots in all things synth pop, are evolving their sound constantly. Anton Fadeev integrates new instruments and his latest instrument of choice is a fully electronic one aka Maschine. There’s Tanya Durkeena who provides her skills on the piano. And of[…]
LIFE SOUNDTRACK: Grimes – Weregild Grimes just announced her new album Art Angels and is now all over the place in the Internet and other media. From all we know, Grimes is still Claire Boucher’s one-woman show, although she surly has some help to manage her ever-growing operations. Claire is[…]
