Sabrina Ratte has done it again and this time its for this upcoming Steve Hauschildt upcoming release. The song alone would have been a true pleasure but Sabrina came in created a beautiful world for it, as always perfecting inversion/decay/color.
Courtship’s [Imageless] caught me off guard on his recent EP, it wasn’t asking for my attention, its as almost like you were watching the song happen, it settles in the distance like a slow moving still, the dialog makes it though, it drops you back into reality in seamless way.
4AD signs an unknown Danish man that goes under the name Indians(how was that not taken?), sounds like something Bibio will one day become.
Knxwledge aka Knx. has the loosest sounding beat out there, almost to the point that it almost sounds like your wood block jacob’s ladder is struggling to work again. My favorite part about him is the quickness he gets in and out of a song, he makes me come back and play his songs 7 or 8 times so I can get the full satisfaction out of them, beat makers take note.
Machinedrum did a mental 11 minute edit of Boards Of Canada, parts of it sounds like its all from a live show, once everything starts rolling Travis has pretty much created one of the best edits of Boards Of Canada i’ve ever heard.
Levek channels early Bibio and one thing that works beautifully is the strings used.
The first half of Howling is a dime a dozen, the way it blossoms is what makes it special, check the Ame remix if you want something even more rhythmic.
I would have mistaken 2400 Operator for a dreamy version of Cybotron Clear which is a huge compliment, I hope to hear more from this Danish duo.

Oneohtrix Point Never’s other project Games has changed their name to Ford & Lopatin which I can appreciate more just for google search purposes since I hate not being able to find music by musicians I like. As for sounds in Channel Pressure i’m floored, you get these glimpses of Dire Straits guitars marrying these pitch bent red headed step child synths that no one would have touched 10 years ago, love it.
I love summer because all of this field recording based material starts to thaw out and has room to breathe like this newer artist Blithe Field, makes you want to go back to some older Bibio.
I dug really deep for this older Reuber track, he’s all over the place when it comes to style/genre but this one always stayed with me.
I thought CVLTS was some rock band that my ears probably couldn’t handle but after hearing this track I was put in my place instead i’m treated with kindness from distant dreamy reverb.
Will Wiesenfeld aka Baths is sharing his side project Geotic with everyone for free. You can download Mends here. Its a collection of songs that sounded like he had an all instrumental jam session with Bibio & Benoit Pioulard at a creek and it was documented on cassette. Enjoy and thanks Will!
