New Music From Warp Favorite Clark: “Unfurla”

Posted September 12, 2014 by | 0 Comments | 466 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 …

The Black Madonna: Artist You Should Know

Posted September 4, 2014 by | 1 Comment | 1,029 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 …

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 …

One half of ambient techno outfit Telefon Tel Aviv, Joshua Eustis started working a new musical project called Sons of Magdalene in response to his father’s cancer diagnosis. Shortly afterward, his Telefon Tel Aviv collaborator Charles W. Cooper III, unexpectedly passed away.
Having been dealt a miserable hand by fate, Eustis spent some time as a touring member of Nine Inch Nails, a band Telefon Tel Aviv …

Seekae – Test & Recognise (Flume Re-work)
In a fairly short period of time, Australian beatmaker Flume has established himself as one of the most consistently exciting artists in electronic music.
I was already a fan of his work, but seeing Flume’s energetic live set at FYF Fest last year made me a true believer.
There’s definitely a “Flume sound” but it’s a spectrum: he can lay …

Erol Alkan’s Rework of Manic Street Preachers

Posted July 21, 2014 by | 0 Comments | 1,434 views]
Manic_Street_Preachers_Erol_Alkan_Rework_750_750_90_s

Baroque Welsh glampoppers Manic Street Preachers are one of the most resilient acts to come out of the 90′s.
Perpetual miserablists with unrelentingly bleak lyrics, album art and gnarly history, the Manics make Radiohead’s navel gazing discography seem almost poppy.
In the service of authenticity, their somewhat damaged guitarist (and lyricist) Richey Edwards carved  “4REAL” into his arm with a razor in the middle of an NME interview with Steve Lamacq.

the acid

Sometimes the internet really works.
I met artist Steve Nalepa through Twitter. He sent me some music that I loved and I began to play it on the radio. A month or so ago, he sent me his new project, The Acid.
The first song I heard, which you can hear below, is “Fame.”
What I heard is a baseline of electronics, with sweet melodies performed with …

Friday Free For All: LA Pool Party Edition

Regional Garland – “Chillin’ Out” (Poolside Edit)
One of the most striking aspects of Poolside’s debut album, “Pacific Standard Time”, was how fully formed their whole “poolside” ethos was right from the start.
Everything fit a very specific vibe – from the name, their laid back sound, and even down to where they recorded the album (in a studio next to a pool, natch).
“Chillin’ Out” isn’t …
