Hypnotic piece of subdued electronics from Oakland’s Austin Cesear, out soon on the always amazing Opal Tapes. The buried kick feels reminiscent of classic Gas. Cesear is coming off some real nice releases on the Proibito and Public Information labels. Opal Tapes just posted a few forthcoming releases here.
The Passenger - sometimes dreams can trick you
Chilled ambient soundscapes from Vancouver artist The Passenger. He had a great performance at last years New Forms Festival. Check out his most recent EP on More Than Human records here.
Rainer Veil - Negative Space
From the ‘New Brutalism’ EP, out now on Andy Stott’s wonderfully curated Modern Love label. The EP explores the deconstruction of rave/club sounds, filtered through memory. A combination of sorts between Lee Gamble’s experimentalism and the more bass heavy percussion of Shackleton. The late night stroll of ‘Negative Space’ is a particular highlight. Love the wobble on this track. Check out the whole release here.
Yüth - Scarlet
There’s virtually nothing we can tell you about this producer other than he is one to watch! "Matter EP" is free and is crazy good! Definitely one of the best EPs we’ve had the privilege of being sent.
Check out the rest of his tracks/videos via his site!
Nils Frahm - Says
Beautifully meditative piano track by Nils Frahm, from the ‘Spaces’ LP, released last fall on Erased Tapes. Video by Romain Assénat & Ana Silva. ‘Improvisation with inks on glass and a video-feedback device, captured live without any post-production.’
Out today on Kranky, Virgins is Tim Hecker’s seventh studio album, but the first recorded completely from live instrumentation. This element gives this ornate record added humanity and depth, a more dynamic canvas to which Hecker can distort, loop and decay.
This track is unlike anything else. Out of nowhere the sinister undertones come to back the most triumphant dance breakdown. Beautiful track. Beautiful video. From the Future EP, released last month on the Public Information label.
1080p is a newly minted casette tape label out of Vancouver. Very cool lo-fi vibes. They’ve already released material from Heartbeat(s), one half of LOL Boys. This track is from the 2nd release that drops today. Great cause to dust off the old Sony Walkman ^__^
