  • Favorites: David Douglas – Royal Horticultural Society MP3

    The electronics tipping the scales of David Douglas’ Royal Horticultural Society all sound familiar…the beats have been struck before…the synths have buzzed my ears once or twice in the past…I have heard this so many times in so many forms…so many speakers echoed these sounds…yet why is it so fresh.  I guess this is why I’m so taken with this Dutch producers album â...

  • J – “Boy” MP3

    Start-track is a pretty fine blog that recently dropped this Czech Republic lo-fi rock gem in J.  I couldn’t drum up too much information besides the 4 track digital release, Cold Cold Nights, on J’s Bandcamp.   The sound is raw, over loaded dual vocals, rough guitars, and straightforward goodness.  Check out the opener: mp3: J – “Boy” Get the full release for free on bandca...

  • teen suicide – “i wanna be a witch” MP3

    teen suicide (Sam Ray & Eric Livingston) have just released a new 3-songer entitled goblin problems, a follow up to the super sweet DC snuff film.  This has the duo recording with real microphones but that doesn’t’ affect the raw lo-fi basement energy the band produces.  That being said, my favorite of the trio of songs is “i wanna be a witch”, a soft beautiful guitar strummed end...

  • Seatraffic – “Crimes” MP3

    Last year I was caught up in San Francisco’s Seatraffic (Mark Zannad and Brandon Harrison) and their beachy Beach House-esque single Speed Limits.  They’ve put out a S/T EP since then and are about to release a new 7″, Crimes, in July which is a darker ride, bringing up feelings (and longings) for the older Interpol vibe.  Check it: mp3: Seatraffic – “Crimes” Cri...

  • Mr. Moccasin – “Black On Black” MP3

    It’s been a few years since I had heard anything from Baltimore’s Mr. Moccasin…but low and behold they have a new album, XAHA, coming out soon.  It’s produced by our pal Greg Hatem (Heart Of Hearts) prompting me to immediately press play on the first single “Black On Black”.  XAHA is the Russian cyrillic spelling of the name Hanna, i.e., the singer of Mr. Moccasin.

  • Snacs MP3

    19 year old New Jersey producer/Bard College student Snacs plays some golden platinum plated crystal funk grooves.  Its impossible not to like.  Its impossible to play quietly. An EP is in the works… And he’s also part of this little collaboration with fellow Bard College student/rapper Windex (EP upcoming as well): mp3: Bomb Ass Soup – Single File (demo)

  • Hazey Jane – Winter Walks EP MP3

    Belgium’s Hazey Jane (Jeroen De Meyer) previously twisted my mind with his blistering Spring EP.  But the seasons have changed with his Winter Walks EP.  While it’s the burning summer here in Baltimore, the winter snows have built up around Hazey Jane, coating everything…washing it out…calming and freezing it.  Pure meditative beats.  Go get Winter Walks via Primitive Patt...

  • Bad Pop – Materia Obscura (Compilation) MP3

    As far as compilations go, this has got to be one of the best I’ve heard in a while.  Mexico’s Bad Pop has gone and put together a spectacular compilation, Materia Obscura,  full of some of my favorite artists such as Beat Culture, Nomadic Firs, PARENTZ, Pariah Carey, and Steffaloo and introduced me to some new ones like Dalliance and Bedroom.  You can download here for free or contribute a...

    Its a rainy Monday here in Bmore and it seems like a perfect time to brush the dust off with the chilled hip hop beats of Netherlands by way of Madrid musician Duke Hugh.  Get lost on his soundcloud/bandcamp, but first… mp3: Duke Hugh – June 9th mp3: Duke Hugh – Moon Unit

  • Wing Dam – Flesh (mp3) MP3

    Baltimore’s Wing Dam (Austin Tally) has crafted some beauty on “Flesh”, a rich track from the Waves To Shore EP (listen and download it on bandcamp).  His soft vocal presence and his soft guitar float through the tides of eerie samples and a rich synthed out chorus while the lyrics weave in and out a sensual movement with the sea. “curve of your jawline bending and sending your tide to...

    Lets just say this.  Sweet Lights (Shai Halperin) and his S/T High-Line released album is nostalgia all over.  Seriously.  Playing this thing…I’m hearing McCartney, Floyd, etc, etc.  It’s silly really…I almost took this as a bad thing.  Then I was like…who am I kidding…these songs are great….beautiful…I’m singing along…waving along…s...

    Newark’s Players To Be Named Later emerge from a cloud of distortion and noise armed with acoustic guitars drum machines and some pretty swell tunes.  They’ve got a 6 track stunner on bandcamp that is steaming with lo-fi basement rock glory. mp3: Players To Be Named Later – Basher’s Last Stand

  • deadCAT – weareinaCULT MP3

    Atlanta’s deadCAT released a 4 song trip last month on Young Latitudes entitled weareinaCULT.  That title seems to hold true seing as much of the rhythms on this noise pop wonder are hypnotic and sometimes even a bit sinister.  That being said the highlight from it is the dubbed out beauty of “Canadian Myst”.  deadCAT’s tunes usually blend well with the dark solitude of winter city...

  • Favorites: Nomadic Firs – S/T MP3

    The more I’ve listened to Nomadic Firs‘ debut S/T LP (out now on Crash Symbols) the more I’m swept in…the more I’m in love with it.  Ryan Boos has taken some folk like po like songs and blanketed them in beautiful electronic grime.  He’s rehashed rock and roll and freewheeled it into cut up/sampled/delayed synth wonders.  There’s even a beach time sunset sonnet...

  • Poor Spirits – Mellow MP3

    Poor Spirits is up to something again…this time in the form of Mellow, an upcoming release.  The title track has him going back to the instrumentals, but roughing up the sound a bit.  The drums are notably raw and I like it. mp3: Poor Spirits – Mellow
