Premiere – Peace Lilly by Joel Robert Melton

October 28th, 2012

Sometimes, when you listen to so much new music and artists everyday like we do, you get real tired. You know, trying to discover a leader, someone that sounds unique, like no one else..Its not that I am looking for the next inventor of the wheel, but its nice to hear truly inspiring music or artist. Besides, there are so many great bands out there, which makes it real hard to make a difference. 6 months ago, I have written about a seriously nasty MF, Joel Robert Melton, Who I have discovered while he had won the respectable 2nd spot on the yearly Bandcamp Hunter countdown. I was struck by the originality, by the power of his music, the awesome guitars…The whole thing made me want to go back to my druggie days, smoke a joint or two or ten, lay down, put on headphones, and drift away, to a place where you are able to think again, be creative, and most importantly, feel. Couple of weeks ago when JRM wrote to me telling me about a new track he was completing, I was kinda hesitant, not sure how I should react if the track would not meet the high standards he had created half a year earlier. I got the track ‘Peace Lilly’ (which is the title of a future EP)2 days ago and to tell you the truth…I cant stop listening to it ever since. First of all, this psychedelic piece makes me want to use whatever he is on…Secondly, his guitars, kill me. This beautiful song, is not arranged like your typical verse chorus verse chorus type arrangement. There are 2 hypnotic parts that grow on you from the very first listen. Although real hazy and cloudy, you could tell it is carefully crafted, sounding just the way great music should be made. I am honored to premiere this track and this artist and we really thank him for the inspiration….

Higher

October 23rd, 2012

Lemiscate, the 2011, self-released debut from Los Angeles musician and visual artist Vinyl Williams, is getting the reissue treatment on November 12 via London’s No Pain In Pop and his own Salonismlam imprint. To psych us up, he made this architecture-themed animation for album single “Higher Worlds,” which sounds an awful lot like what might happen if ’70s krautrock icons Neu! asked a vocalist to sing on top of all the motorik beats and elemental guitar melodies. Complicating the found footage aesthetic, Williams passes some VHS-style filters over a homemade 3D animation, so that the result looks an awful lot like a vintage videogame even though it’s an original work.

Clandestine

February 22nd, 2011

Northern-Spy Records reveals its first release in a new cassette series entitled “Clandestine.” Limited to 150 copies, pro dubbed on chrome tape cassettes. Four artists offer a release that’s not so much cloak and dagger as uncovering forward directions in music. From the opening drones and understated beats of Messages through the fret-board perambulations of Tom Carter (whose full-length project, Eleven Twenty-Nine, is forthcoming from N-Spy). Side two is no less revealing as psychedelic drone virtuoso Zaimph (Marcia Bassett) shares a side with avant-folk legend Loren Connors during a live encounter at Union Pool with bassist Margarida Garcia. This is a sample of Indian Landmark.

What does the Anemone got to do with it?

February 8th, 2011

Answer is: Nothin. Just loved the way it looks. Got a mail from Charles Eric Charrier. Charles-Eric Charrier, half of the duo MAN, has recorded multiple albums, film scores, and collaborative projects with painters and choreographers. Now he has an album out, ‘Silver’, which he recorded with Collaborators Ronan Benoit and Cyril Secq. Acording to Experimedia, which releases Silver, this project is a lesson in release and tension. You`ll find it  hard to categorize their creation. It`s roots dig deep into free jazz and modern composition, touching psychedelic, rock and electronic music as well. It`s not the first time we write about Charles Eric Charrier, and if you wil take the time and listen to The Silver preview, you`ll understand why we really dig the this gifted artist.

Not as tidy as you would expect

October 26th, 2010

I was listening to Tidy Kid for the first time, while thinking he could be an Warp artist and still shine, meaning he got those extra qualities and musical and technical abilities without even knowing Warp had released a Bibio remix of his. One of his recording ventures is titled ‘One Week With My Casio’ , and it`s one of the most creative EP`s you could lay your hands on. If you consider it took only a week to create – song composition plus recording, and that it was all done with a CASIO CT-102 you are going to be quite shocked., I really dig this ground breaking, adventurous, spontaneous, and imaginative EP. It`s the 2nd time in a short period of time that we write about bedroom casio geeks, no offense. This NYC based musician`s EP was originally released in cassette by Germany’s Froggi Records. This K7 only release is limited to 150 copies, by the way.
