Kauf – Regrowth LP

So regular readers will know we've long been fans of Kauf and his melancholic melodic emotion-laden brand of Electonica and finally we have an album and surprise surprise it's quite wonderful.   Regrowth as an LP is that rare thing in modern music a cohesive journey. In a time where, I'd say, 99% of albums feel pieced together after the fact an album like this where it's clearly been curated to fill out the details of a...

New Order – Bizarre Love Triangle

To be honest i could get away with writing nothing and just posting tonight’s track. Such is the magnitude of this song and the band who released it.  For some reason, this song seems to come on  via random more than others when i am cruising to work and every time it does…i go a little bit bonkers. In fact, i still get the same emotion/thrill when i hear as i did the first time....

Mayten – Hive

Ooooh its been a while…usual stuff blah blah blah and as often is the case i have been meaning to put this track up for some time.   We have featured Mayten, the electronic music produce from Seattle, before – the fantastic Detours. What i love about that track was that while it was an electronic, it had a beautiful almost organic sound, additionally it really took you on a journey, through genres (techno, deep...

Kauf – Limestone

I think I speak for both Fourbearsjr and myself in stressing how important emotion is in the music we enjoy.   I understand that emotion is a very difficult quality to pinpoint in words with any subtleness. Love, Happiness, Sadness, Anger, Pain! All great words that convey an emotional point and leave no real room for interpretation. But when you move away from the written medium emotion becomes much harder to explain. Yet it's something that really...

Yumi Zouma – Persephone

A journey that should have taken me about 15 minutes took me over an hour today. That's the way it is in Malta sometimes if there is an accident or a breakdown. But usually the sun is shining and the music is playing so it kind of makes up for it. I also had a colleague with me who i picked up on the way so I didn't subject him to my music taste so...

Geotic – Nav

I have been meaning to put a track up from the album tonight's track comes from, for some time. So when it came on in the car, randomly, this morning it was finally time.   Geotic is Bill Wiesenfed, who has also released stuff under the name Baths – hailing from Tarzana (eh!) Los Angeles. Tonight's track comes from his album Abysma which was released on Ghostly earlier this year. And you can tell its from Ghostly...

Modeselektor – Silikon (Siriusmo Remix)

Been digging into the hard drive over the weekend and stumbled back upon the Hello Mom! LP and then by way of that the remix album, and in particular Siriusmo's insanely good remix of Silikion.   Modeselektor are an odd one for me, they seldom pop into the conversation for me but every time I listen to their stuff I'm completely blown away by how energetic and well produced it is sitting somewhere between dark wigged out...

Half Waif – Frost Burn

A quick one tonight but a track I have been meaning to put up for a while. It follows on from the Half Waif track I posted a couple of weeks ago- it's so good it had to go up.   While I loved Severed Logic I like Frost Burn even more. It's the second single from her upcoming ep. Again it is a lovely blend of vocal electronica but I love the synth riff build that then breaks into the...

Eat More Cake – Heat Of The Night

i must look like a lunatic when I'm driving to work in the mornings, particularly when I have tracks like this on and the sun is shining There is no doubt I will be doing some outrageous head nodding and making my sunglasses dance in time by flicking the arms behind my ears.   Aapie and I are suckers for stuff like Eat More Cake's Heat Of The Night on the excellent and ever growing Perfect...

Half Waif – Severed Logic

As Aapie mentioned, it was a pretty difficult start to the year for us. But things are getting back to normal and I have been catching up on stuff that we have been sent over the last couple of months and there is some fantastic stuff in there. Today's track is one of those.   Half Waif is Nadi Rose Plunkett. Who has an interesting background, the daughter of an Indian refugee and an American father of...
