Kompakt’s Thomas Fehlmann has a new LP coming out on March 29th called Gute Luft, Fehlmann has kept himself busy in recent years doing more melodic ambient work with delightful soft kicks which makes him a pretty diverse creative since doing The Orb and his Dub material on Lowflow which I loved.
Here it is if you haven’t heard it: Flying Lotus with Thom Yorke, I think it gets better with every listen!
Another album that’s still kind of far away is Paul White & The Purple Brain which is slated for June, it is Paul White’s second album that sounds like it will touch on some 60’s psychedelic rock with some beats keeping it Paul White style.
I’m not sure if this song is off the tour only 7 inch from The Xx merch booth but its one of my favorite guitar parts by them.
Went to Bowery Ballroom last night to check out The Drums, I fell in love with the music, the combination of eras in the sound was really refreshing. At times I thought Grizzly Bear meets The Cure and the guitar really keeps it catchy while the singer serenades and keeps the crowd feeling like you’re invited to dance on stage with him. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
I posted back in December on Lone’s LP Lemurian and got a lil bit of love and hate but I still listen to the record quiet a bit and so should you if you ever picked it up. ONe of my favorite labels just put his new EP at Werkdiscs which is run by Actress, definitely a great label and good pick up on that roster. This song Sunset Teens is a faster tempo compared to his LP songs but he still makes it sound Lone-ish, take that BoC comparsions, jk.
Kompakt’s 200th release is approaching and i’m anxiously waiting to hear what Wolfgang and Jorg are going to do. Back when Kompakt 100 came out I loved this Sascha Funke remix of Thomas Fehlmann, I just of played it everyday for months.
When I was following Trent Reznor on twitter I realized he kept talking about Mew and I remember never giving the band a proper listen, now i’d of loved to see this band live, a lot of detail here, do they really bring a vibraphone on stage or is that just played off a laptop somewhere on stage?
The Drums – Submarine
Lone – Sunset Teens
Thomas Fehlmann – Radeln (Sascha Funke Remix)
