After cleaning up out of the pig sty , Cosmo Sheldrake has released another intriguing musical adventure in the form of “The Fly”. The eccentric electronic-folk musician takes on the role of Jeff Goldlum and imagines life through that of an insect on a jazzy back beat.
Oh mon dieu qu'il est bon. Cosmo Sheldrake , c'est le fils de Ruppert Sheldrake , un grand chimiste anglais (il me semblait important de le préciser). Il nous livre une musique à la fois brut et douce, qui saurait faire danser la macarena à un manchot. The Fly est une énorme tuerie, à découvrir d'urgence.
I was first introduced to Cosmo Sheldrake when I caught a video of him playing live in a pig sty . Yes, you heard me correctly - a pig sty. Cosmo is part of a new generation of one-man shows with his expertise as a master looper, vocalist, beatboxer and multi instrumentalist (I can barely recognize half the instruments that make up his live arsenal). He regularly performs on his loop station, banjo, keyboards, double bass, drums, didgeridoo, penny whistle, sousaphone and more. Growing up playing piano from the age of 4, Cosmo has taken massive strides towards crafting [...]
If great British eccentric Cosmo Sheldrake is fast becoming one of our most precocious young producers, then The Fly can only enhance the buzz for it's his best creation thus far. It's idiosyncratic and with it intricate as his every other, though it's with that buoyed by a quite remarkable harmony instantly timeless as The Gosport Tragedy, or anything the Fairport Convention have yet contrived to compose as Sheldrake vicariously contemplates the precarious existence of a bluebottle, or more likely a tsetse given his penchant for the alluringly exotic. "Then I am happy fly/ If I live or if I [...]
Tweet I bet his piano teacher never anticipated this. Cosmo Sheldrake started learning classical piano at the age of 4, or so the legend goes. Now he is a multi-instrumentalist (artist code for a git) capable of tickling the banjo, loop station, keyboards, double bass, drums, didgeridoo, penny whistle, sousaphone (he made that one up we reckon) and more besides. Though, we doubt he has yet mastered the dark art of sweaty armpit burps (my dubstep rendition of Moonlight Shadow is something to behold for sure). According to his web blurb [...]

For the recital of a record entitled In a Time Lapse , there's an oddly progressive and indeed fresh feel to much of an invigorating first half from modern-day master, Ludovico Einaudi . To be filed right up there among his finest, it was an often breathtaking oeuvre even when experienced about becoming homely comforts however live, and however inevitable this will surely sound, it truly comes to life. An orchestra of sorts emerges from a murky darkness, the main hall of the iconic Barbican Centre smothered in funereal draperies. Guitarists sporting [...]
The Child of Lov is proud to share "Fly" off of his forthcoming self-titled LP which will be released on May 6th via Double Six Records and on May 7th via Domino Records in North America. The Child of Lov sees songwriter/vocalist Cole Williams heading back to the future as both modern soul man and funk revivalist crafting thickly-layered psychedelic grooves with a hip-hop attitude. The album, which was recorded at Damon Albarn's studio 13 and features contributions from Damon Albarn , Thundercat, and DOOM, possesses a nostalgic reverence for early trailblazers like Little [...]

This week marked the release of a brand new single from London's electro pop duo, AlunaGeorge, entitled "Attracting Flies." With the release comes mountains of remixes, bootlegs, and the like. With an ever growing fan base, and for good reason, AlunaGeorge's music makes for a nearly perfect slate for... The post AlunaGeorge - "Attracting Flies (Andrea Bootleg Edit)" appeared first on Noise Collective .
It's been just about 24 hours since future-R&B duo AlunaGeorge released their catchy-as-hell new single, " Attracting Flies ", but the remixes are rolling in. Correction: the remix (for now) rolled in, and it's from Parisian producer Andrea. We've heard him do the damn thing overhauling tracks from Justin Timberlake and the xx previously, with this rework sitting comfortably in his growing catalog. If you wanted more bass and codeine from "Attracting Flies", Andrea's got you covered here. Plus, it's a free download.
AlunaGeorge dropped their first single yesterday off the forthcoming album, Body Music LP. Andrea is quick to jump behind his production tools and drop a bootleg of "Attracting Flies" following up on previous remixes for We Sink and The xx. Andrea experiments with the instrumental, but leaves the vocals alone for the most part. Check out the original version that came out yesterday here: AlunaGeorge - Attracting Flies . Download: AlunaGeorge - Attracting Flies (Andrea Bootleg Edit) The post AlunaGeorge - [...]

El primer sencillo de Body music - el esperadísimo debut en largo del dúo inglés AlunaGeorge - ha visto la luz hace algunos momentos atrás. Estrenado en el programa Radio 1 de la BBC, y segundos después en el Soundcloud de la banda, "Attracting flies" sigue en la línea de sus singles más bailables ("You know you like it" o "It's just a touch"): bajos gruesos, melodías sinuosas y sintes retrofuturistas á la The Knife. Todo coronado con la susurrante voz de Aluna Francis. Recuerda que Body music sale a [...]
Because its been a while and because I have so many great tracks that would easily fit into the re-released feature, if only labels would re-release some great underrated records; I'm reinstating the Jukebox. At least for a little while I am. Seems a shame to sit on such greatness. Search out the full lengths where you can and know that these are just the tip of the iceberg.

Opossom - Fly The former Mint Chicks frontman, New Zealand resident and bro to UMO singer and guitarist, Kody Nielson has recorded some fantastic psych pop music, just chuck full of heavy compression, blitzing synths and pop hooks. Less garage and more pop than his brother Kody has developed a unique sound harking back to those before but moving forward enough to influence those of the future. Do check out his album Electric Hawaii, which you can get digitally and on beautiful black wax . Hat tip to my vintage synth obsessed [...]
