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 stand 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 →

((( O ))) – Higher

Slow and methodical here from ((( O ))), real name June Marieezy - a Texas based chill LoFi styled artist! Higher is a simple composition which never over-complicates itself - smooth beat, smooth vocals and subtle keys. Certainly a song to have a cup of tea to on a mundane Monday - that's what I'm...

Kalabrese – Ligestuetz (Ft. Lara Stoll)

Very interesting sounds here from Zurich's Kalabrese! I know this fella from before and his brilliant 2014 indie disco track 'Kafi Lied' where he sang nice and pensively alongside Sarah Palin. This new one is ripped from a new three song EP 'Let Me Be Your Princess' and gets the write up due to it's... Continue Reading →

The Tallest Man On Earth – I’m a Stranger Now

I don't think I have written about 'The Tallest Man on Earth' on this site before. No idea why I haven't really as he is completely in the A class of musicians of our generation! His ability to match the most complex guitar plucking with his compelling voice seamlessly makes him a golden treasure. I... Continue Reading →

Tash Sultana – Can’t Buy Happiness

Taking it all down a notch or three here with a fine new release from Aussie mellow 'one person band' Tash Sultana. Sultana has been a frequent visitor to the Triple J top charts in recent years but this is my first helping of their music. Sultana is no slouch when it comes to being... Continue Reading →
