Mildlife – How Long Does It Take

Funky Disco is never a bad shout no matter what day of the week it is. Melbourne's four piece 'Mildlife' have just released their latest foray into the psych jazz world with the sublime 'How Long Does It Take'. We have featured a few jazz disco style acts on the Sniffer in our opening year... Continue Reading →

Ginevra – Lips

Music of real beauty from Turin, Italy here from 25 year old musical prodigy Ginevra. Lips is a stylish opening track from this heavily anticipated newbie - pure honest vocal narratives at play here. There is a brilliant simplicity to it all, with keyboard melodies and only a little bit of electro complimenting it. In... Continue Reading →

LEISURE – On my mind

We were lucky enough to cop a few tickets for Auckland's gem of a band LEISURE in Oslo, London on May the 3rd. Their new release 'On my mind' is a feel good anthem if I've ever heard one. Without a release in just over three years, I was beginning to get worried that these... Continue Reading →

BUTTERJACK – GoodGirls

Summer is upon us now in London, it's 25 degrees and most of us are opening up the crate of 25 beers in the garden this weekend. The summer playlist is essential for times like these and Butterjack's 2017 under the radar hit Goodgirls is a perfect sunbathing soundtrack to get us in the mood.... Continue Reading →

MOTTRON – Lighter

Brooding synths litter this debut from new French pop act MOTTRON from the outset. The song plods along purposefly and eerily - the intensity continues throughout and an acidic synth melody drives home it's powerful intentions. The electronic production of this song reminds me slightly of something 'Son of Kick' would have produced a few... Continue Reading →

Robag Wruhme – Venq Tolep

Pampa Records never ever disappoints I don't think. Anything sanctioned by DJ Koze seems to be blissful in nature! Here we have East German circuit legend Wruhme with a beautiful ambient composition . Mellow to the max - this 44 year old is churning out great sounds still, almost 15 years since his debut album...

Clément Froissart – Peupleraie

Very nicely assembled synth-pop stuff here from French artist Clément Froissart. This is his new solo project as he splinters from his band 'Concorde'. This song and it's eerie drone synth running throughout (similar to Beach House - Norway) really stands out from first listen. This is just a superbly written piece of emotive music,...

Salute – JTS

Dreamy bass here from 'Salute' - a tune suitable for big crowds at a summer festival for sure. This is a UK dance hit worthy of being heard from up and coming young producer 'Salute'. I heard Annie Mac giving this a spin on BBC and had a snaky Shazam on it at the time.... Continue Reading →

Dumbo Gets Mad – Makes You Fly

Italian duo Luca Bergomi and Carlotta Menozzi formed this psych-rock project upon moving to LA back in 2010. I have just stumbled upon them now, god forbid, and what a first impression they've made! 'Makes You Fly' is superb on so many levels. The opening Jazz horns and percussion build this up nicely from the... Continue Reading →
