Teams: Dxys Xff EP

Teams is by far one of my favourite bands of recent months, creating a sonic assault of beauty with layers of dream like nostalgic chillwaved beats, sounds from blissful dancefloors and sunny nights, drifting and ambient at points, abstract R&b at others, always smooth and polished like perfumed air though sunglasses, warm and inviting. In fact Teams is so good I kinda haven't wanted to write anything about him 'cos it just seemed a bit intimidating.
The brilliant and full length release Dxys Xff is out on Amdiscs but you can also download each individual track from the Soundcloud player below.

SHOBMX Vs ALEC EMIRE the interview!

Local Brightonians the oddball dj super-group that is Super Heroes Of BMX have a healthy appreciation of Atari Teenage Riot and through the levelling power of Twitter just went and asked to interview Alec Empire and got it! Very Nardwuar-esque in their DIY "just go for it" approach! Have a read about of the interview here.


The days of simple remixes of a track by a Dj of a band are long gone and the world is deep with multiple layers of re-edits/remixes/fixes/re-fixes/collaborations and re-imaginings this is one such and probably as close to a pop sound as Mater Suspiria Vision go!

Antique Shade: crystalline ambient chill braves.

New York duo Antique Shade have a debut EP called Homeward Sounds available for free from their Bandcamp page. They sound like quiet crystalline chillwave dudes spilling tantric mind-waves onto old tape 8-tracks while they stare into the middle distance, lovely and all good in my book. Go get their EP here.

"I believe in taking care of myself, in a
balanced diet, in a rigorous exercise routine. In the morning, if my face is a little puffy, I'll put on an ice pack while doing my stomach crunches.
I can do a thousand now.
The project is called BL/\CK CEILING and its the creation of one Dan Ocean -out on Black Lantern Music. Expect camp, slightly cheesy, Witch House that is actually pretty good. His Soundcloud has loads of free downloads and a lot of remixes. Drag remixes that really work cos they are not just slowed down but there is more going on!

Let Magic Fades be your summer soundtrack!

Portland Oregon always produces good music and this is no exception, Magic Fades are a duo making awesome celestial sounds, these are blissed out smooth pop jams like Chillwave without any nostalgia, crooning vocals dispensing R&B-isms and star spangled magic through slow low sex music and house inspired shoe gaze electronica. Beautiful stuff, there are even some guitar solos in there! They are planning on releasing an EP or album at the beginning of the summer but until then everything on their Soundcloud is free to download so go grab it now because it's great!

Great video for a great band but my interest lies primarily with the brilliant DIY feeling video made for the band by †CRCKHEAD†. Gothic, video styled, filmed off the tv, witch house in the woods, bleak mid winter, urban post apocalyptic, reclaimed by nature, ruins of rust comes the new goth, caps but inverted crosses, fashion but dirt, lost in the wilderness, bleached out.
No idea what I'm going on about? Check their blog for the some of the coolest looking people on the planet.

I once put on a club night where YOU LOVE HER COZ SHE'S DEAD played, it was good, trash hardcore screaming, raveing and fist pumping stuff. They are the usual "boy on sounds girl screaming" duo set up ala Crystal Castles etc but its different and more punk in a Republica kinda way, post-nu-rave 8-bit something or other. Plus the singer is way hot! I have two of their t.shirts.

▇ G ▇ O ▇ S ▇ T ▇ S ▇ † have a silly name and do some weird shit, yeah Witch House but also like sampling Papa Roach in a song?

Their EP Gosts EP is free to download from Bandcamp, go listen and get it for completeness's sake!

statement of intent, or an intense statement..

...this blog might be taking a less Noise more Rave direction. My brain is less excited by long abstract noise and experimental tracks and more titillated by post rave kind of sounds.. things with a better production range and a bit more upbeat, I dunno the next thing I post will probably contradict this statement, but hey I just feel I need to up my sonic game a bit and not wander down a narrowing avenue of hard to listen to tracks. Anyway here is something I just discovered in the last half hour and think is just brilliant and is the kind of example of things I'm going on about: Tash Willmore - ♏ü﹩ḯк @ƒ ℱäяℊεя, this track is epic and heavy blissful and just big things!

Pyramids Of Mu - How Is Annie?

I said I'd always blog this band and here we go with a 3rd sample heavy track, Pyramids Of Mu - How Is Annie? sad it cuts off so dead at the end but it is off the Phantasma Disques Tribute To Twin Peaks Vol. 2, the OKKVLT and WITCH HOUSE guide to Twin Peaks (LIMITED TO 125 FAN CDRs) so that's fair enough. Loving this slowed down 90s-esque sound, brilliant!

Nattymari presents an asymmetrical matrix

We are all products of our preconceptions. Even those that fancy themselves avant easily fall into the simplified categories that society’s norms have created for them. It’s a matter of species survival. Whereas mutation is good for evolution, it is anathema to the stagnation of maintaining our role as alpha beast on this planet.
Despite its futuristic warcry, most music is old and unchallenging. Even the purveyors of futurism like Ornette Coleman and Frank Zappa have found themselves washing their feet in the tepid pool of rhythm and blues. In order for any music to be completely challenging, it must jar the listener. Attack the senses with information that is not so easily processed. It comes as no surprise that this may not always be a pleasant experience.
Symmetry is the essence of beauty. When model Marla Hanson was assaulted, her face was deemed unworthy of magazine covers because it lost its symmetry. My music could easily be Marla Hanson’s face. Scared. Flawed, by society’s standards, yet maintaining the same beauty that always lies in the sweet songs of the Seirēnes.

Best set of Mater Suspiria Vision remixs ever carved into audio!
Crossover and Pyramids Of Mu are my favourites!

DAS HAUS DER HEXE REMIXES by cosmotropia-de-xam

ПѠЃѠЅТЪ - Кѧрлоs [2011]

It's gonna be a video blogging week this week because of huge amounts of work I have to do outside of the blogging world, like you know in real life, and 'cos like I'm chained to my Google Reader and it's not healthy and way too stressy!
Today is a band and video that I can not identify at all! I think its in Swedish but in a well weird font so translating it doesn't help. Enjoy the Witchian hell that it is!

Pyramids Of Mu - Illuminatu

My new favourite band Pyramids Of Mu have internet presence beyond their singular Vimeo profile, I blogged their video and remix of Mater Supiria Visions - Das Haus der Hexe a few days ago and today they have a Soundcloud with the track "Illuminatu" on it! How closely connected to Mater Suspiria Vision there are remains to be seen but they are signed to their label Phantasma Disques. So I'm just excited to see what else issues forth from their vaguely KLF inspired sonic brains!
