019EGGS-400x398

Born in Liverpool and based in Manchester, electronic psych folk artist Jane Weaver is – and has practically always been – steeped in the ether of musical history.
From her early 90s Britpop project to her current female folk minded record label Bird, Weaver has long been part of a musical family that includes Badly Drawn Boy, (her partner) Andy Votel, doves, Elbow and Cate Le Bon. Recently, …

New Music From Warp Favorite Clark: “Unfurla”

Posted September 12, 2014 by | 0 Comments | 443 views]
safe_image

Christopher Clark is a long time personal favorite of mine.
His releases all occupy a perfectly comfortable space on the shelf with any and all of Warp Records’ finest.
Clark splits the difference between all of the labels’ elder statesmen and has carved out his very own style. The stark, clean productionof  Autechre, chaotic, polyphonic atmospherics of Aphex, soulful, moody introspection of Boards of Canada, Plaid’s pretty playfulness.
Clark does …

Ariel Pink Plays Hard to Get

I suppose now that the first track is out I can talk about the Ariel Pink listening party I went to several weeks ago where some LA cats got a preview of his forthcoming album.
Needless to say it was a sublimely strange and completely lysergic fever dream of a listen, that left a lot of listeners blissfully weirded out.
At one point, my good friend …

20 years on, New York dream pop outfit Blonde Redhead continues to boldly do whatever the Hell they want in their confoundingly delectable way.
Their newest album, “Barragan“, picks up where their gorgeous 2010 release “Penny Sparkle“ left off.
That is to say, they’re still finding new and intriguing ways to artfully explore a slow, gossamer version of a sound that has made household names of artists …

The Black Madonna: Artist You Should Know

Posted September 4, 2014 by | 1 Comment | 1,006 views]
blackmadonna

As aliases go, I can’t quite think of a better, more awesome name than The Black Madonna.
Evocative in a dozen different ways, it befits Chicago DJ/Producer Marea Stamper.
Apart from being that rarest of mythical creatures, “a woman DJ/producer” she also just actually happens to do it better than most (regardless of gender.) Her style rips through a whole spectrum of sounds from disco to techno to house with …

Joel Hood: Artist You Should Know

Hailing from North Yorkshire, producer Joel Hood creates blissfully melancholic electronic pop that is both as big as a sunset and personal as a whisper. His work sounds like the work of a person who listened to nothing but Air France for months, because he did. The CD got stuck in his car player and what was probably initially really frustrating became an immersive experience …

The Khun Narin Electric Phin Band: Artist You Should Know

Local producer and studio wizard Josh Marcy is a righteous dude.
An unassuming and generally beatific kind of dude, you’d have to twist his arm to get him to tell you about being DJ Harvey’s engineer.
But that’s seemingly not his trip anyways, for a true head like Marcy, the trip is the trip.
And that literally and figuratively has resulted in the release of one of the most unique world …

In the last 2 weeks DJ/Producer Daniel Avery as has in Manchester, London, Chicago and Seattle.
Next 2 weeks he will be in Ibiza, Glasgow, Amsterdam and Croatia.
This weekend at FYF Fest, he’ll no doubt be playing a finely tuned set of pure wavy dancefloor fire. I caught up with him briefly (literally between flights) to see how he’s holding up…
BUD! It’s been about a year since the release of …

FYF Fest 2014 Preview

Fyf Fest 2014 final

The time has come, once again, per annual tradition, for KCRW DJ Marion Hodges and I like to share our personal FYF Festival picks.
This year is not a particularly easy one to cover as it’s possibly the best line-up the Fest has had to date (and arguably the best line-up of any festival in Southern California this year).
Like wow.
There isn’t a single kink in the line-up, so you …

Richard Norris Comes Out From the Shadows to Get Freaky

richard_norris_freaks_ep_600

Leftfield UK dance stalwart Richard Norris has been in the game since the early days of Acid House, but unlike his peers Andrew Weatherall and Erol Alkan, Norris has maintained (and seemingly purposefully fostered) an air of relative anonymity.
The driving force behind The Grid, The Time & Space Machine and as half of Beyond The Wizard’s Sleeve (his collaborative project with Alkan) Norris has …
