Miserable – Halloween Dream

May 27, 2014

a1872256756_10

Ex-Whirr vocalist Kristina Esfandiari’s new project. It’s really good and a lot darker.

Oh yeah and thanks again to everyone who’s still subscribed to this blog and still interested in our (mostly my) music taste.

The Bilinda Butchers – Regret, Love, Guilt, Dreams

January 20, 2014

Some San Francisco Dream Pop/Shoegaze/easy listening/whatever. The song “Careless Teens” is pretty cool to listen to with headphones on a mostly empty evening train.

Adam/Kill the Zodiac is a very cool dude who’s been up here before. It’s probably my favourite ambient project. These are two new songs.

CELESTE – ANIMALE(S) Part I & II

January 9, 2014

celeste-animale

We’ve had CELESTE on here before, ex-Mihai Edrisch members, et cetera et cetera. CELESTE keeps getting darker and darker every record and normally I’m not into the super heavy shit but they pull it off and you should really give these guys a listen if you have ignored them for the past five or whatever.

P.S. Worldpolice is never dead.

3717952537-1So first off, apologies for the huge delay. I’m the only one that cares about this blog these days and my Mediafire account got banned (enjoy those 404 links).

We posted Charlottefield before and they rule. This does too.

HṚṢṬA – Discography

July 20, 2012

We took a brief hiatus from new releases we like to “classics” we like. HRSTA for all of you who aren’t familiar is a project from Mike Moya. He left GY!BE (and then came back when they got back together). HRSTA uses a lot of whispery thin vocals and unconventional sounds, like mock-theremins with a screwdriver on the fretboard of a guitar. Unfortunately it looks like they’re on a bit of a break.

Olafur Arnalds – Living Room Songs

July 16, 2012

We’ve featured Olafur before and filed him under “people our age who make us feel shit about ourselves.”

Likely you’ve heard of him if you’ve listened to anyone name drop post rock groups or are into Neo-Classical at all.

This collection of songs was recorded over a period of seven days where he recorded one song in his living room a day. You can hear the floor boards creak if you’re listening closely enough.

This release doesn’t disappoint compared to his previous releases, and he’s probably my favourite composer yet. He’s said he tries, and I think he achieves, bringing classical music to t-shirt and jeans folk.Also, fun fact, he drummed in a Hardcore band “Fighting Shit” before he started composing.

Sea Oleena – Sleeplessness

July 15, 2012

Sea Oleena is an absolutely talented artist from Canada. As of writing this it looks like her work is entirely self released and recorded.

On her Bandcamp you’ll find collaborative stuff from her as well that features her gorgeous voice, but her solo work remains to be my favourite.

Pygmy Lush – Old Friends

April 18, 2011

I feel as though I’ve grown up with Pygmy Lush. They largely formed out of the ashes of Pg. 99, as many of you know. As a younger teenager I grew up listening to Pg.99, able to equate their raw anger to my bottomless well of teenage angst. Then Pygmy Lush came through with their rough Folk music that I started to listen to more and more as I settled down. Pygmy Lush has really refined their Folk sound in their latest LP. It’s absolutely beautiful.
