Releases

July 15th, 2012

Every weekend, my mail boxes explode with PR notes, new releases updates and notifications, music news, and loads of tracks I receive for reviewing purposes. I have decided to share 2 of my weekend favorites with you . The first track was sent to me by Andrew Hamlet, sharing his latest Pressed And Mush records release, ‘Hyper Thistle’, a breakbeat chopped vocal track that works out perfectly as a soundtrack to my agitated spirit. The second track is a nice surprise from a longtime acquaintance, Malka Spigel, (Minimal Compact), who is about to release ‘Every Day Is Like The First Day’ (September 4 On Pink Flag).

Every Day Is Like The First Day features Malka Spigel, Colin Newman (husband, Wire), and number of collaborators including Andy Ramsay (Stereolab; Press Play), Johnny Marr (The Smiths; Modest Mouse; The Cribs) and Matthew Simms (It Hugs Back; Wire) among many others.

 


Why steal? Actually, Why not?

July 9th, 2012

Jib Kidder Steals guitars. actually, its a harsh word, so lets say he borrows. Besides, its not guitars, just guitar parts. He samples all those country and spaghetti westerns, rootsy American guitar parts, that actually could fit perfectly on a Tarantino movie, and turns this frantic mixture into funk heaven. As he states on his bandcamp page, he has been creating new junk out of existing junk for the past 15 years. He got the Midas touch for funk, manipulating those breakbeats and turning them into his own. Using all those cheesy bits and pieces as an instrument, and mastering this art in such a creative manner, turning his music to an upgraded Wiseguys version. While playing his ‘Steal guitar’ record (released few months ago), I had a feeling this record reflects my life right now. There is something so meaningful for me about this organized clolorful mayhem, and it truly fits the frenzied mood I am in right now, plus, I find it ultra inspiring. Incredible, my friends.

We are really open to suggestions, recommendations, if there is an interesting artist you might think of that fits the Lofiles bill, Lofi, Experimental, Musical, Minimalistic, Uncompromising, etc, let us know. In the meantime, visit us HERE


LOFILES 2011′S SIXTYNINE

December 22nd, 2011

This collection of songs has been curated out of the 300 artists and tracks we have covered throughout the year. This has been more or less my iPod’s most abused playlist, and the magical number that we have come up with, are those songs that have accompanied us for the longest time. Those of you that will dig deeper, will realize that our heart belongs to lofi minimalistic bedroom music and we are always on the search for musicians that succeed in making inspiring music within the limitations of their homes or bedroom and despite of the fact they had no budget . SONG ORDER IS PRETTY MUCH MEANINGLESS, allthough we have placed the artists you are most likely to know at the top spots.

We wish you a Merry Christmas, a Happy Chanukah, a Joyous Kwanzaa, and a Happy New Year…and we hope next year will be as inspiring and rewarding as this one.

Monster Rally & RUMTUM is the collaboration of Ted Feighan (Monster Rally) and John Hastings (RUMTUM). The two natives of Cleveland met in Columbus through mutual friends and began bonding over a love of good groove and music. The project is the exploration of their shared musical tastes influenced by hip-hop, psych-pop, dub, dance and funk. The EP, MR&RT, is a seven-track introduction to the sound of Monster Rally & RUMTUM and serves as a preview of what’s to come…Their collaboration EP, MR&RT will be out February 7th, 2012 and can be pre-ordered now from the Waaga records store. Listen to this sweeeet appetizer..

 


Lobsters

August 31st, 2011

This is a great EP guys. I have been following VLEK for awhile now, and just visited their site and ever since been listening to this combination of ragged and hi fi by Squeaky Lobster, of fat synth sounds alongside dirty hip hop kicks and snares, the Arabic scales. The fourth track on this EP titles Aarnivalkea is my favorite. The photo shows Sqeaky LobstersWill-O’-The-Wisp’ EP covers drying. The EP has been released Aug 1st, and you could purchase it here.

See me not

November 11th, 2010

I love dirty beats and scratchy vinyl type sounds. Especially when ancient formats issues are so relevant, after Sony`s announcement last week.. Let`s declare this week as an ‘Analougue revenge week’. Munich based trio, Saroos, consists of 3 musicians/ tech wizards, Florian Zimmer (Jersey), Christoph Brander (Lali Puna, Console), and Max Punktezahl (The Notwist), and their 2nd album, ‘See me not’, is coming out this week on Notwist`s label Alien Transistor (row) and on Anticon (u.s. and japan). I have been listening to the title track, ‘See me not’, an instrumental hip hop type of thing, my favorite so far. This is a hypnotic piece, carried by a slow rough saturated breakbeat , enhanced with the sparse and smart use of odd samples and sounds & ultra distorted guitars. Saroos are bulding it`s tension slowly and while the track never really explodes, it is quite enough to keep you at the edge of your seat.

This is not Junk, this is culture

July 3rd, 2010

His music is quantized harder than we are used to listen to being that we live in the Flying lotus age, but it doesn’t mean he aint got heavy duty skills. His pseudonym says it all: Junk culture. We greet him and his ragged drum samples with a warm welcome:…” Junk Culture is a new project by Deepak Mantena on the Illegal Art label. The first Junk Culture EP, West Coast, was released in October 2009, with another EP to follow in the Fall of 2010. On West Coast, Deepak’s samples are all run through a handheld recorder that gives his constructions a gritty lo-fi loop-based sound, mixing fractured vocals, pop hooks, and an overall euphoric warmth.

Listen to Junk Culture


Organized confusion

May 13th, 2010

I love the music Dylan Ettinger is making in his bedroom. Loose beats, sine wave subs and cheesy key and organ sounds, the mayhem in the backgroubd that somehow evolves into a melody, organized cacophony. Real inspiring
