"Having toured the world in support of their debut 'Native To', IS TROPICAL (Dominic Apa, Gary Barber and Simon Milner) return with 'I’m Leaving' - the band's new album for French record label Kitsuné. Whilst racking up enough hedonistic experiences to last a lifetime, IS TROPICAL have been busy learning some important musical lessons: namely, that 100mph craziness isn't necessarily all you need to make a record. 'I'm Leaving' marks itself out as a distinct progression from its predecessor. Produced by seasoned pro and friend of the band Luke Smith (Depeche Mode, Foals), 'Dancing Anymore' features a duet between Gary [...]

IV is the new release by Bravestation , brothers Devin & Derek Wilson alongside childhood friend Jeremy Rossetti. Together, they began making music in the City of the 1000 Islands several years before moving to Toronto in 2008 & adopting the moniker Bravestation. The name is derived from the titles of Aldous Huxley’s novel Brave New World & Robert J. Hasting’s inspirational essay, The Station.

New Tunng ? Yes, please. You know I am affectionate toward the London crew, and their new song, "The Village," does little to alter that. The song is 4 minutes 33 seconds, and I've listened to it 5 times in the last 22 minutes and 45 seconds. Math!

Adventure's particular brand of electronic pop is steeped in the work of chiptune acts and electronic pop acts alike. Weird Work is an earned title, many of the songs tilt and lilt frenetically and jubilantly. This is an album built around an impressive array of tones - tones that you may have heard before, and may even have access to on your computer, but tones that have been curated into an exceptional, albeit a little unmemorable, package. 'Laser Blast' lives up to its name by being both artificial and assaulting in a cartoony way that makes the [...]
