We’re honored to be able to share Benoit Pioulard’s new album Hymnal on its day of release, he is probably the blogs most written about and loved artist for many years. Let this one play in full, my highlights include: Reliquary, Excave, Margins and Litiya. Enjoy.
Roosevelt reminds me of chillwave without the lo-fi ala Washed Out & Toro Y Moi, but it goes beyond song writing skills, he knows his production well, he’s the perfect hybrid of how survive and what to make post Neon Indian, did you catch all my name drops?
Mirror Kisses sticks to his guns, keeps perfecting the sound he loves, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Fujimoto Tetsuro fuses together that Sepalcure sound with that beauty of glitch done soo damn right, its funk its light its something refreshing.
Mark Fell’s new project for Editions Mego takes diva vocals into a future dark world being rained down on by icy thin harpoons from digital synths, has that Detroit flavor I love.
Mid May is the release of the new Small Black LP on Jagjaguwar, some might remember them as the backing band for Washed Out early on but we’ve always supported them and their music on ISO50, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
The end of Emeralds means plenty more music from each band member. Mark McGuire is back at prime form with this extend work of a track off the upcoming LP.
I can see Emma Louise working on a Tycho track, maybe its just the mood of the production that makes me think that.
The Purity Ring sound bubble keeps growing with followers and impersonators, I wonder what the rest of this record sounds like?
Been loving the collection of photos in Michael Light’s 100 Suns, showing the first few moments of nuclear bomb tests that took place in the 1950’s. If you haven’t seen this before, the science behind capturing these images is also a great read.
