Slim Twig: Artist You Should Know

Posted November 19, 2014 by | 0 Comments | 757 views]
slimtwig_pressphoto-650x366

Toronto’s Slim Twig is literally an art brat.
Born Max Trumbull, Twig’s parents are filmmakers and quite obviously made him feel comfortable acting, performing and trying on different masks from a seemingly early age.
Still in his early 20s, he’s been in films with Ellen Page, done some film scoring and aside from releasing his own work as Slim Twig, has done production on albums by U.S. Girls and (Toronto band) Tropics.
His self-released 2012 album …

If you’re a fan of the Alabama Shakes and have been anticipating the release of their new album, I have a delicious garage rock treat out of Nashville you might like in the meantime: Fly Golden Eagle

They band formed about five years ago, starting as a solo project from Ben Trimble, who came from a religious family “steeped in gospel choirs and honky-tonk keys”.
Their …

Literature: Artist You Should Know

Posted November 12, 2014 by | 0 Comments | 1,279 views]
literature

As best I can gather, Philadelphia based band Literature began releasing music in 2010 in the form of a 7” titled “Cincinnati.”
How in the name of all that is pure and holy had no other indiepop band named themselves Literature by 2010?
No matter, this Literature is clearly the one true Literature.
Their first LP “Arab Spring” was released in 2012 as free download on Bandcamp, …

Tkay Maidza: Artist You Should Know

I love following the horse race for summer jam of the year, though I gotta say, 2014′s crop of contenders was one of the weakest that I can remember.
There wasn’t a huge single for everyone to get behind (and inevitably burn out on) through the summer like in years past.
The big winner of the Summer of 2014 (by default) would appear to be Iggy …

Brassica: Artist You Should Know

BRASSICA_CIVIL_MUSIC_BY_DAN_WILTON_2000-2

Mysteriously named after the cruciferous genus of plants that give us cabbages and mustard greens, UK producer Michael Anthony Wright creates smart, emotive House as Brassica.
The classically-trained musician has spent the last few years deejaying, playing in bands, performing with the London Sinfonetta, remixing a slew of amazing artists and creating custom software as a foundation for his original series of EPs for the Civil …

Shamir: Artist You Should Know

Posted October 30, 2014 by | 0 Comments | 1,071 views]
shamir

Shamir (Bailey) is a 19-year-old, wilfully androgynous singer/songwriter/burgeoning dance music producer hailing from North Las Vegas.
Why has the music world not been completely consumed by this guy?
Granted, niche media is perhaps at it’s peak right now, and chances are that whatever weird thing that speaks directly to you will be represented somehow, somewhere (and almost certainly in the form of song). Your options for …

Always under the excellent curatorial tutelage of Erol Alkan, UK based record label Phantasy has been around for 7 years but has hit it’s stride in the last 3 years.
Between the rise of wavy space cowboys Connan Mockasin and Daniel Avery, banging solo work by Chemical Brother Tom Rowlands, and Alkan’s own foray into producing original work…Phantasy is doing the damn thing.
And with the recent announcement of a full length …

Ptaki: Artist You Should Know

Polish DJ/production duo Ptaki (which means birds in Polish) flew into discerning listeners radars like a full on flock sometimes registers on an air traffic controllers screen awhile back with a ripping 7″ on the Very Polish Cut-Outs label a few years back. “Krystina” is a laid back groover that by edit standards stands out as a shimmering example of what a savvy editor can do …

Artist You Should Know: Museum of Love

Museum-Of-Love-

While James Murphy was the heart, soul, and face of LCD Soundsystem, drummer Pat Mahoney was it’s backbone.
Pounding the skins with metronomic precision for the group’s entire seven year run, Mahoney was the anchor of LCD’s muscular rhythm section.
Three and a half years removed from LCD Soundsystem’s final show at Madison Square Garden (immortalized in the film Shut Up And Play The Hits), Pat …

James Bay: Artist You Should Know

It was about a year ago when I first heard and met James Bay in Los Angeles. His first EP, “The Dark of The Morning” really drew me to him.
In the song “Move Together”, James sings with a thoughtful, old soul and his lyrics are beautiful. So when you meet him, you are amazed that he is only 24 years old.
With a deepness and …
