Ass

October 10th, 2011

Ex Punk rocker and instrumentalist Andreas Söderström has been making music as a solo artist under the name Ass for quite some time now. This is just a brief example and an appetizer from Andreas and Headspin recordings for those of you who have never heard his acoustic music.

Wings wont behave

October 10th, 2011

We love Whistle Peak. We love ‘Wings wont behave’. Their music is childish and mature at the same time. Fell in love with this song first time we listened to it. The single will be released digitally on November 1st. CD/LP will be out on Karate Body records late January.

 


Anthers

October 9th, 2011

Unfortunately, I don’t write very often about local artists, and I don’t really know why, but I am sure there is a good reason for that. Maybe its because I never really listen to the lyrics, because the music interferes and carries me away and words are so important here in this country. Besides, I think, that in most cases, a writer should stick to his native born language when he or she writes lyrics, maybe that’s why I am not impressed with most English singing local artists. This time though, In Noria’s case, its different. Maybe because there was something about the first song I have heard from them, that carried me away, and I didn’t care about minor things such as foreign accent and shit like that. I just love that song, and their music, and it caught me off guard, and got me hooked. Some bio stuff here:

Noria was founded in 2008 by Nir Tsfaty (vocals, guitar, and electronics), Dotan Moshanov (piano, keyboards, and vocals) and Alon Peretz (guitar and electronics). The three were, at the time, composition students at the Jerusalem Music Academy. A few months later they were joined by Noa Segal (drums) and Orri Dror (bass) – two experienced musicians in the Israeli rock scene, who had played together for long time in several local bands before joining Noria.. The songs were written by Nir and arranged by the group members. They recorded‘Anthers’, their debut E.P.  with the help of producer Oren Eytan. On July 2011 the band have released ‘Last Sunset’, their debut single, to the national and local radio stations in Israel.

Puzzled

October 9th, 2011

Not quite our day to day lofi harsh attitude and real poppy if you compare it to latest posts, but we couldn’t ignore those nice guys (from the great city of Reykjavik, a city we promised ourselves we would visit real soon) of this Icelandic label, Bedroom community, a record label/collective formed in 2006 by Valgeir Sigurðsson, with Nico Muhly and Ben Frost, who are using their incredible Greenhouse studio for their recording projects (check out the photo ). One of their artists is Puzzle Muteson, ,the alter ego of an songwriter from the Isle of Wight, with an incredible Tenor voice and real cool finger picking style. I couldn’t resist the sound of the first track from ‘En Garde’, his Bedroom community release, Arranged and produced by collaborators and labelmates Nico Muhly and Valgeir Sigurðsson. Real pretty songs, and I am back in my coffee shop, while ‘A tightrope dance’ and ‘En Garde’ are playing repeatedly on my invaluable Macbook. Buy the album HERE

 


Teebs & Rom

October 9th, 2011

I wanted to share with you 2 precious gifts; Music from Rom and visuals from Teebs. I probably dont have to introduce Teebs to you, who is a part of the Brainfeeder crew, with Flying Lotus, Daedelus, The Gaslamp Killer, matthewdavid just to name a few. Rom is the beautiful sound of Matt Crum and Roberto Lange. The duo began their music in 2000 as a free improvisational group that would play multiple instruments and record hours of material that would later be reworked on until this incredible piece of music presented here was completed. You could purchase it HERE

Cut Lip

October 8th, 2011

I know nothing about Ranvir Bassi ( a Pseudonym). Hell, I don’t even know his name, ( he says on his bandcamp that it was a mistake when he exposed his name in the past, so who are we to argue about that, besides, when you think about it, the outcome is what`s important really ) but I like his record, a sort of Leila, Tricky, dark kinda album, cool sounding lofi keys, distorted eerie lines, distant reverb soaked vocals, minimalistic music, exactly the way we like it to be. Hope you enjoy this appetizer, especially if you were fasting earlier today. Free download HERE

 


This is the story of paradise lost

October 7th, 2011

“We are weighed down, every moment, by the conception and the sensation of Time. And there are but two means of escaping and forgetting this nightmare : pleasure and work. Pleasure consumes us. Work strengthens us. Let us choose.”

Charles Baudelaire

Listen to the one and only, Leyland James Kirby, with ‘This is the story of paradise lost’, from ‘Eager to tear apart the stars’, released this month.

Go ahead and purchase the album
