Leftovers are sometimes great especially if its music. The artist gets to remind people of what they put out and maybe get some new ears on it and diehard fans get a bonus and in this case a pretty one indeed.
From the You’re Dead! sessions plus some additional “random stuff.”
I’m looking forward to music from Mark Pritchard more than I am from anyone from Radiohead and this track makes me feel good about that thought. Mark is a top of the line swiss army knife when it comes to production, plenty of patience and precision, he uses things sparingly, just guides you to how you want to feel.
If you’re late to the game on Kyson its alright, i’m pretty sure the vocal additions being this clear is a new venture for him. How about that though? this voice was there all this time, sounds like a seasoned veteran to me.
Like a digital wind tunnel being built particle by particle around you this track by Holymachines & AQUIET moves quickly yet remains close keeping with the visual theme that was paired up with it. Look for updates on the release at Holymachines soundcloud.
I just got back from a 5 week tour with Shigeto & Lord RAJA in the EU. Let’s get back to the music!
First, this new Leon Vynehall absolutely blossoms into a real crowd pleaser. What always impresses me about Vynehall is the added detail, he really combs through the track and releases these extra bursts of flavor into his songs that weave perfectly into the song.
Gold Panda has been MIA more than most people hoped, his new work grabs me as thought over heavily but with the same life as his previous music. I don’t want to say mature because thats sort of a cop out, this one especially feels lush in the headphones.
Before your Todd Terje’s, D Lissik’s, Goldroom’s or Poolside’s there was a tucked away crew of SF guys that released on Sentrall Records. It mainly included Anthony Puglisi who went under the name Rollmottle along with the duo Broker/Dealer.
At the time it was a mature driven sound, not much cross over because the influences seemed drenched in 70’s psychedelia, yacht rock and some of the synth guru’s from coastal regions. It was heady but informative and elegant, each song felt like you discovered something that wouldn’t ever be on the radio but you could proudly play it for Bob Dylan or Kraftwerk.
