Above our some screenshots from the Syntaks videos that i’ve posted below, beautiful visuals that i’m sure many of you will be happy to see. Syntaks is Jakob Skott from Denmark who collaborates with Anna Cecilia, the music hints at calm instrumentals by Cocteau Twins and all the way to the more melodic work by William Basinski.
Wow I don’t have the guts to put out what Tune-Yards does but i’d love to try and make this kind of music, raw and loopy with plenty of passion behind every note played.
Pictureplane and Teengirl Fantasy seem to be both on the same boat, sounds like re-edits of pop songs but with additional melody and lo-fi backing. Teengirl Fantasy has hints of what seems to be Throw Some D’s by Rich Boy(great song by the way) accompanied with a lullaby like melody and calmed noise while Pictureplane takes the classic Seven Wonders by Fleetwood Mac and give it a harsh crunchy swing backing beat, its a pretty nice edit, I wouldn’t of gave it its own name though I would of just called it an edit, still a great listen.
You want a gentler side of M83 or Telefon Tel Aviv for the upcoming winter months? well Jakob Skøtt and Anna Cecilia will have a beautiful Syntaks LP out very soon to fill that void. They’re giving away this 2 song EP on here for free.
I’ll never give up the opportunity to post music by Studio, this duo can’t do no wrong in my mind, I love how they give us almost 10 minute on this “radio edit”. 1:30 and beyond you get this enjoyable reverse sounding low end mixed with a slowly churning rhythm section, its worth sitting thru all the slight changes.
My friend Wisp will be on tour with Venetian Snares this month, check out the tour dates here and the song above, I have no doubt in my mind he is one of the most talented composers of melody in the 21st century.
Where The Wild Things Are comes out this week and to celebrate here’s the Arcade Fire song from the trailer. Who’s going? i’m going with my mom I think since she told me this was my favorite book from when I was younger and that i’d actually introduce myself to strangers as one of the monsters.
