NEW MUSIC: Spaces of Disappearance – There Is No Loss (EP)

Chicago singer/producer Elaine HD aka Spaces of Disappearance balances icy electronics with full, warm vocals. I could witness her great live performance at last year’s CMJ, so I’m happy to hear some new material: her second EP “There Is No Loss” contains three new tracks, including the single “No None”,[…]

SONG PICK: Fufanu – Bad Rockets

Only a month ago, Fufanu delighted with their fascinating video “Sports”.  More reason to rejoice since the Icelandic trio just dropped another track, the brooding and totally mesmerizing “Bad Rockets”. Once again Fufanu proof that dark new-wavy sound with guitars and a clear electronic edge can sound as fresh and alluring as can[…]

SONG PICK: Anna Straker – Serious

SONG PICK: Matt Elleray – Talk Baby

“Talk Baby” by British singer/songwriter Matt Elleray features dark and sultry vocals over clear and bright guitar chords, some hand-clapping (which always appeals to me) and an ultra-cool guitar solo near the end of the laid-back and mesmerizing track. When communicating with Matt, I asked him about the song’s meaning and here’s what[…]
