I think i’ve posted 3 songs by Solvent this month, I guess I just can’t get enough, here’s a new one from his album that came out this month called Subject To Shift. Yesterday I got an email that he’ll be starting up his old label Suction Records which got me really geeked, some of the compilations on that label really kick started my love for this kind of synth pop.
Oval is back and i’m loving it, he’s touching on that sound that Caribou and Four Tet are known for, pretty ace.
I’m really into Pictureplane but I can’t imagine they’ve been sequencing electronic music for more than 2 years, either way i’m loving this track.
Light Asylum is the most unique project i’ve heard live in some time now. I can’t get enough, that vocal paired up synthesized percussion is bringing back nice memories.
Some of you might have bought the new Caribou record this week and want more or even prefer the old Manitoba sound well a nice new LP from Spirituals can fill this void in your life very quickly. The self titled LP from Spirituals has beautiful melodic swells and full of surprising light drives and builds using everything from woodblocks and warm organs.
The drums may remind you of Phil Collins and her vocals might hint at a tougher Annie Lennox and the synths might have picked up where Q Lazzarus(Goodbye Horses aka the song from Silence Of The Lambs) left off but there is one thing for sure this sound collected is new and fresh.
This is a rough rip from youtube so please excuse the quality but if I could say it does add a little charm to this track. Ross 154 is Newworldaquarium a Danish musical genius in my mind if you followed him on labels like MOS or Delsin. Using classic sequencing of underground raw Chicago House and Aphex Twim SAW like melodies makes me feel like i’m glowing every time I hear it.
Reaching deep into my archives I had to pull this out, maybe the best game ever for the Sega Genesis was Sonic The Hedgehog but soundtrack wise Streets Of Rage 2 was untouchable, here is a intro track that some people say was just be a rip of Enigma‘s Sadeness but the melody added on top of it always made my 12 year old nod.
