Get ready for a challenging listen on this one! This i.o album titled Edit Architect is a dense, tangled web of multi-tracked guitars, relentless drums, and whatever other glitches this Victoria-based bedroom recording project manages to throw into the works.
It’s like a fusion of free jazz, math rock, and the avant-garde. Give a listen and enjoy!
The new Tobacco album is one of the most demented sonic adventures I’ve gone on this year.
The previously mentioned Kid Smpl drops another track from his forthcoming Silo Tear EP. The song “Ja” is far noisier than I would have expected given the last track I heard from this Seattle-based producer. “Ja” is just bursting at the seams with distorted, abrasive sounds, yes, still maintains a really dreary mood. The explosive heights this track reaches are epic as well.
Expect Silo Tear via Hush Hush Records on May 5th.
Famed dubstep producer Skrillex finally drops a full-length record.
Canadian music producer Tim Hecker returns with a stunning collection of tracks that make for some of the most beautiful music I’ve heard this year.
Check out the new (and possibly seizure-inducing) music video from German electronic musician Frank Bretschneider for the track “Black.Out.” The video simply consists of a series of black and white squares and circles programmed to flash in sync with the track’s incredibly punchy IDM beat. Watch it above!
“Black.Out” is taken from Bretschneider’s latest LP Super.Trigger, out now via Raster-Noton.
Santa Ana producer and restauranteur Chris Alfaro is about to drop a new full-length this month under his Free The Robots monicker–on the 19th, actually–and “Adore” is one of the fourteen tracks on it.
The Balance is definitely earns its title thanks to its careful mix of glitchy hip hop beats, psychedelic electronics, jazzy samples, and a number of other genre-defying characteristics. “Adore” showcases all of these elements and more with a slow, lovely lead melody backed up with chipmunked background vocals that are cute and charming. There are some ominous vibes lurking around some of the melodies as the song progresses, though! Watch out, and enjoy!
German electronic music producer Siriusmo has a new album on the way in June titled Enthusiast, and he’s recently dropped a new track from it, which you can hear via the widget above. It’s a beautifully meticulous track with a hard groove and very jagged melodies I’m enjoying a lot.
I’m also hearing there will be a full-size orchestra on this forthcoming album, which is an exciting change of pace, but Tiny Mix Tapes seems to think the producer may be retiring after this new full-length, which I hope isn’t the case; because the world could use more dance music that’s equally grooving and melodically engaging.
Check a review of Siriusmo’s last full-length here:
Autechre may be coming from the same cold, analytical place they usually do, but Exai shows that their skills for crafting sound are stronger than ever.
