C. Valley+B. Benjamin+S. Slinger+Implodes

Posted by Jakub

Chad Valley makes me feel like “hey, I listen to pop music and its good pop music too”, can I say a hint of male Sade? I guess he has another EP coming out on Cascine this summer, i’ll post more when I hear it.

Any of you remember Midwest Product? well one of guys from that does Ben Benjamin now, the album is a very focused instrumental LP with an emphasis on looped melody and jumps out of the breakdowns, I found Finding the Perfect egg as a favorite.

Star Slinger reworked my favorite How To Dress Well track, gorgeous.

Dare I say i’m liking the new Implodes LP over the Grouper LPs? I don’t know but i’m definitely listening to Black Earth on repeat sometimes.

As always, thanks for sharing! FYI….I believe the online store over @ Ghostly International is having issues. Perhaps you have connections to alert them! I first had issues on Record Store Day. Then I went to check out that Ben Benjamin, and had the same ‘Can’t find the server’ message.

Anyway, love this post. Hadn’t heard ‘How to Dress Well’ before, but Star Slinger is throwin down here.

by the way, what’s up with the RSS feed?

it may be just my reader, but ISO50 isn’t updating, strange.
