Moodoïd "Heavy Metal Be Bop 2"


Today was the release of Moodoïd ep " Heavy Metal Be Bop2". The track may be subject to criticism, though I see it as masterful way to combining deferent genres and creating a beautiful nightmare; mixing jazz with psychedelic, if you are faint of heart this track will not be your friend (nor will be the video).

Trails and Ways " Skeletons"

Trails and Ways is back with a brand new track and a fresh new sound with their track Skeletons. The track will be part of their upcoming album Pathology out on June 6th on Barsuk  Records. Although this track features a heavier synth, what truly attracts me about Trails and Way is the way they make everything sound so organic.

Astronauts, etc. " I Know"

This is a great departure for Astronauts, etc. usual sound who are better known for an electronic sound; however I must admit although in their new tack I Know they engage in 70's revival, the sound is quite natural and better fitting. According to the e-mail, the song was recorded with a live band but analog produced, which I think it gives a very fresh sound.

Andrea Balency " Waterfalls"


Andrea Balecy's new EP is coming out March 16th, but today I received her latest single Waterfalls.  The track is a electronic combination of samples as she is well known for; Balency is better known for her track Never Been Alone, but I feel this track runs more organically.

Champs " Desire"

Champs have just released the video for their track Desire. This track will be part of their upcoming album on VAMALA out on February 23rd. Personally I'm not crazy about their voice, it reminds me of Tegan and Sarah, but the truth is that Desire is a very nice track and the whole band repertoire is quite amazing.



Unnveig Aas " How Long Must a Woman Mourn "

Norwegian singer Unnveig Aas sent over her track, How Long Must a Woman Mourn.  The track is a haunting folk track mixing electronic elements maintaining the somber tone, and fragileness. Unnveig is making a splash in Europe and is hoping to make a splash here too.

UK band Black Honey have release three demos till this date, not until recently any of their music was actually available in the US. This changed today, as their record company Dully Noted, partner with Turntable Kitchen to release 350 vinyls of their EP in the US (hurry they are going fast). The band is simply exciting, even with only three tracks to back them up, it is clear to see how big they soon will be in the US.
