A new collection of tracks from producer Lee Bannon, the followup to the Caligula Theme Music project he dropped a few months ago. Like that group of tracks, Never/mind/the/darkness/of/it has a strong trap influence go it, but Bannon makes use of space and ethereal effects for a moodier tone. Enjoy!
A brand new track from the chiptune rockers Anamanaguchi, which comes from the NY group’s forthcoming album, Endless Fantasy. The LP is currently looking at a May 14th release date, and the band is trying to make this album cycle bigger and better than past ones with a new Kickstarter that’s currently raising money for distribution, music videos, live show lighting, future collaborations, and more. Enjoy!
A new track from the forthcoming Bibio album, Silver Wilkinson, which is gonna be released on Warp records later this year. On previous releases, the UK produced showed himself to be a jack of all trades when it comes to influences and musical emulation. On this latest track of his, “You,” Bibio ventures out on a more hip hop-influenced endeavor with a punchy beat and methodically splattered soul samples. The track is seductive and detailed. Enjoy!
Check a review for Bibio’s Mind Bokeh below:
Lapalux drops what I’m assuming is a spare track from his recent full-length effort, Nostalchic. It’s an interesting track that works in multiple phases. Structurally, it definitely throws a few twists and turns at the listener, which is maybe why it didn’t make it onto the LP. Who knows? Either way, Lapalux delivers heavenly vocals set against weird, warped, wonky-style beats and synths. Enjoy!
Check a review for Nostalchic here:
A set of weird, trippy, and off-kilter hip hop instrumentals from SEENMR. The guy absolutely loves to sample, and the bass on some of these tracks is really resonant; however, don’t expect any bangers on this thing. The CHINATOWN TAPE is a release that comes on a little slower. It buries itself deep into the psyche with damaged samples, low-pass filters, and ancient grooves. Enjoy!
foodman is an electronic music producer I’ve been following on SoundCloud for months now. His account is one of many that I’ve run across whose owner doesn’t really have an album or much industry status, yet, he prolifically pumps out material that’s refreshing and oddly creative.
Though foodman’s tracks are usually short, they make up for it with intricately confusing details that never cease, really. Nearly every song on this dude’s soundcloud is a challenge to dissect–especially since most of them come from a juke and footwork background, which are already detail-dense genres.
Here’s a selection of foodman tracks I enjoy:
Check this footwork compilation Foodman was featured on that I dug last year.
I think I just had a bit of brain melt listening to this track from Alphabets Heaven.
A large part of this odd sensation that I am experiencing is due to the visuals, this is very much an audio/visual experience make no mistake. The track itself is subdued and feels fairly minimalist. But once the beat gets going it still has a warm feeling to it, striking a delicate balance.
The video is something completely entrancing and is very much a fevered version of a child’s cartoon. Characters shift and transform sometimes in monsters, sometimes into animals, it’s very translucent and ends with a birthday celebration featuring dancing teeth… I don’t really think I can add to that.
Tjutjuna is entrancing me with this new track off of their upcoming LP Westerner.
“Mousetrap” is the perfect name for this song as it really feels like it’s closing in on me the longer it goes on. The way guitars and depth build is a big part of the feeling of being surrounded by sounds. Mogwai is what comes to mind with what I’m hearing especially in a lot of the sounds that Tjutjuna has put together. I don’t think there is anything wrong with that comparison because of there is one band that knows atmospheric build up it’s Mogwai, and the guys seem to have a lot to work with in that department as well.
Though Lapalux’s latest track isn’t exactly lengthy, it’s got a lot of beauty on display between its Angel One sample and glistening synths. I love how the track gets really thick and layered with this synths toward the end, too. Enjoy!
