UK-based electronic music producer Hudson Mohawke has recently announced that he’s got a new EP on the way via Warp Records. He’s dropped a new track along with the announcement, and it’s the title track of that forthcoming EP, Chimes. It’s dropping officially on September 29th.
Needless to day, considering I’ve enjoyed Hudson’s previous projects so much, I’m excited for what’s coming up on Chimes. The title track itself takes an incredibly loud, rowdy approach to the trap banger. While there are some ethereal, glossy synth passages on this track, much of it’s runtime is taken over by loud, distorted sub-bass and slightly offbeat synth horns.
It’s unquestionably colorful, and even though it might share a little too much common ground with what Hudson’s already done in TNGHT, I’m still loving what’s going on here.
Versatile producer Shlohmo drops a collaborative EP with singer-songwriter Jeremih.
Whimsical, delicate, and moving, these five new tracks from singer-songwriter Shara Worden–a.k.a. My Brightest Diamond–make for a pretty captivating lead-up to her next full-length album, which is dropping later this year. We actually shared a track from it a little while ago.
Seems like a pretty capable EP, and doesn’t really feel like any material that’s completely throw-away. If this is what didn’t make the album, I can only imagine how great this next release is going to be.
Hotflush Recordings founder Scuba drops a track from his forthcoming Phenix 2 EP, which features four new tracks on it. As expected, this cut features a strong 4/4 groove, loads of ethereal sound effects, and the musical progressions are incredibly slow and subtle. It’s electronic tension building at its finest–especially as the track reaches a boisterous highpoint at the 4:03 mark. Enjoy!
Some freakish, frenzied punk rock on this new Vulture shit EP, which you can stream via the widget above. If you love manic vocals and wild guitars compressed into brief musical blitzkriegs, then this is for you. Enjoy!
Previously reviewed beatmusic producer Sadisc drops a new EP, which is essentially a few odds and ends surrounding a massive, 20-minute monster of a track. The song is titled “Cells,” and it’s really a test of Sadsic’s abilities as a composer, weaving a group of incredibly varied instrumentals and grooves together into one pretty cohesive piece.
Give the EP a stream above and enjoy!
I’m certain this debut EP of New York experimental rock trio Kiddy Pool contains the most batshit song title of the year: “I Guh Guh Got A$$bergers from a Toilet Seat.” Let that be some indication of what the band’s sound is like – unhinged, noisy (surf) punk laden with lasering electronics and skittering vocal samples. The threesome’s zany dial is turned to 11 most of the time, but they are capable of mellowing out quite a bit, like for the penultimate track “Voodoo or Dirty Mind no Let’s Stay Together,” or for the closing moments of “Mouth Bunker.” It’s a breezy albeit frenzied listen with its six tracks totaling about 12 minutes; give it a try above and happy listening!
Previously mentioned hip hop duo #$ has just put out its first project on Smokers Cough Records, the eight-track-long mini-album Hash Money. It’s a breezy listen, clocking in a little short of the half hour mark, but it showcases everything that makes its two members so great. New Jersey MC GDP is a clever and charismatic wordsmith and Space Jesus‘ production style is definitely his own – I’ll go with the above Bandcamp page’s “electro hip-hop bass” description of his beats. The twosome ultimately pack a lot into Hash Money, resulting in a decidedly short-winded but substantial listen. Enjoy!
