Ishmael Ensemble – Lapwing

Rarely you come across an instrumental piece that delievers a punch as big as this one does from Bristol's Ishmael Ensemble! I stumbled accross this beauty a couple of days ago and have been keeping it to myself until now. As soon as I heard the initial kicks I was into this, by the time... Continue Reading →

Nick AM – FATALE (EP)

It's not often (or ever) I link two songs from the same EP on a Sniffer post, usual ways are meant to be broken, especially when a debut EP is completely brilliant. This New York artist is certainly well worth hearing today. Nick AM's LoFi house indie has just announced itself to us via The... 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,...

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...

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 →

Sparrows – Do You Wanna Dance?

Gold from Sydney based Australian artist Jessica Nitties AKA 'Sparrows' - uplifting stuff to say the least. This was my first tune I've found through The Hype Machine and I'm extremely glad I persevered on my search through the heaps of stuff on that platform. 'Do you wanna Dance' opens with an intriguing, brooding and... Continue Reading →
