We're big proponents of the Australian dance music scene. In fact, in the past fourteen days we've posted about the same amount of Aussie artists. The country generates some of the most forward-thinking, genre-bending, and straight-up enjoyable music and producers out there today. One such bourgeoning talent is Luke Tkalcevic, also known as Sondrio , who's name you might already be familiar with through our features on his remixes of Kraftwerk and Peking Duk , and originals All In, Black and Monetary . His carefully crafted style of house music has [...]
Hey Anna: Pompette EP - Hey Anna is a band made up of Anna, Katie and Erin Rauch-Sassen on vocals, Matthew Langner on drums and Andrew Smolin on guitar.

Their self-titled EP was released last September and now we have the Pompette EP this spring. So, creation isn’t the problem. In fact, there isn’t a problem at all. As the cover art for [...]

It’s always a lovely treat when some exciting tunes drop into our inbox & that’s exactly how we came to listen to the latest in the SPEICHER compilation series from KOMPAKT - SPEICHER 75. Made up of two highly emotive yet simple tracks from Denmark’s KÖLSCH , there is ‘ GOLDFISCH’ on the A side - a beautiful track full of shimmering pads and progressive chords. Jump to the flip side and you find [...]
Almost a year later we're returning back to Bloc for the first time to see what all the hype has been about. Saturday is the penultimate event in a sucessful series of parties which have taken the promoters back to their roots. Several friends of ours have been to a few and have been raving (literally) about how great they've been. They've been reporting that Bloc's new venue in the depths of east london is one of the best underground venues around at the moment and the atmosphere and music have been spot on. So, on Saturday night one of the [...]
Vodun continues where previous band Invasion left, producing catchy pop songs with stupidly sludgy guitars matched with quirky drums and deliciously dreamy vocals. - By Richard Collins
Islet | Triangulation Station Words by Rosie Ramsden Latest single from Islet , ' Triangulation Station ’, from upcoming album Released By The Movement , is almost-six-minutes of loaded post-punk guitar loops, near-infinite vocal layering, and wondrous Welsh psychedelic pop euphoria. The track, recorded by Stephen Black (AKA Sweet Baboo ), will be released on band member Mark Thomas’s own Shape Records label, on limited 12” vinyl and download. The adventurous single will come with with three additional exclusive [...]
Broken Mazes by MarQ Spekt & Gary Wilson This record is a collaboration between myself (MarQ Spekt) and experimental, proto-new wave musician Gary Wilson (Stones Throw). It's rare that you get the opportunity to work with the actual artist rather than just sampling his records. Gary opened his vaults and provided ample soundscapes. Some of these instrumentals date back to 1973 and may have been heard before. Others may not. The ending result is a pure creative expression and meshes Hip Hop, Psychedelic, Jazz, Funk.... Soak up the vibrations and Enjoy!
La logorrhée journalistique se contente le plus souvent de chiffres, de dates ou de minces références bien senties pour conférer à un quelconque plan marketing les oripeaux d'une chronique désintéressée. Le monde dans lequel on vit est loin d'être parfait, mais c'est ainsi qu'il tourne, à l'envers, selon des logiques consuméristes à peine voilées, et ce, sans omission - ou presque. Difficile pourtant d'appliquer la sacro-sainte formule du genre au collectif techno Polar Inertia qui, après deux EP parus en 2012 sur le jeune label parisien Demented , The Indirect Light et The Last [...]
Climbers , nuestro dúo mexicano favorito, está de vuelta con una nueva producción elaborada en colaboración con los productores Barber & Silky para el lanzamiento número 57 del sello alemán OFF Recordings .

The 1975 are as Huw Stephens describes “A Manchester band with a beautiful, sensitive swagger" that has made a lasting impression with continuous stream of anthemic indie pop songs. The band has unveiled the full stream of their new IV EP featuring current single "The City" as well as three other brand new tracksWhile we've gotten to hear the gentle " fallingforyou," "Haunt // Bed" is a more somber sound than we are used to hearing from the band while "So Far (It’s Alright)" is a simpler vocal backed by percolating piano. The EP simultaneously sounds like The [...]
Beach Vacation formed after performing in a high school talent show and within two weeks of recording on GarageBand, were released by a label in the U.K. Their debut EP, Maritime , was launched via Bandcamp on the 29th of April. The colorful array of soothing vocals, surfy guitar riffs and rockabilly-esque drums has been received with open arms by summer loving crowds around the world. The young surf rockers mastered a well-rounded wave of four, happy-go-lucky tracks. Their sound can be compared to the likes of Beach Fossils, King Tuff, Dirty Beaches and of course, The Beach Boys [...]

Alright The Captain | Conversational Skills for the Socially Anxious Words by Mark Robinson The superbly titled (and appropriately named) new EP/album/mathrockart collage by Derby trio Alright the Captain is nothing short of ridiculous. Conversational Skills for the Socially Anxious is a perfect encapsulation of the band’s relentless touring schedule, with the album recorded live to give an accurate representation of the ferocious sound. Let’s get the cliché’s done and dusted; if you enjoy Primus/Oceansize or even Rush, you will [...]
'I think a lot of house and disco producers today are looking back in time to find inspiration, when the groove drove a song - humans with instruments drove the song. Not white-noise and a laptop accompanied by two Co2 cannons. Music with soul, music with honesty. Music that invites you in and holds on forever.' — Lancelot Last week Sydney-based producer Lancelot released a two-track EP You'll Never Be Mine . It features a title track as well as a second one called The Way I Feel About You , both of which [...]

Nostalgia can be a terrible thing, but we're all grateful for a dose of it every once in a while. Gallant is a 21 year-old, New York-based artist who's music harks back to the glory days of the mid-nineties, when pop/r'n'b crossovers were storming every chart everywhere. Thankfully though there's something in his delivery and production that makes new track Please? (Vignette) sound beautifully fresh. The smooth-as-silk falsetto vocals are show-stopping, and they're the perfect match for the blissful ambience of the instrumentation that bubbles along on twinkling keys and crisp percussive beats. Please? [...]
El pasado mes de Abril el dúo de Sttutgart Final DJs ( Basty y Thomas ) junto a las vocales de su compatriota Stee Downes presentaban " One Day In The Sun ", un single 80´s summer vibes que nos recuerda un maravilloso verano de sol, playa y chic@s a través de sus estimulantes synths vibes , líneas de bajo funk, y un [...]
Time to champion a champion, so to speak. Champion Sound Records to be more precise. The Belfast-based label have been absolutely killing it with their recent releases. Home to Ryan Vail - who made this delicious mix for us last week - and a handful of other great artists, they've upped their game again on latest release, I Cry . Featuring Gemma Dunleavy on (rather stunning) lead vocals, I Cry is the lead track from Unknown's [...]
