Ellie Herring - Satiate



Ellie Herring is an electronic musician and producer from Kentucky, she released her first EP, Flailing In Attraction, in June last year and now has a limited edition CD release called Satiate out on the Mater Suspiria Vision label Phantasma Disques. 


This is ambient Witchian styled experimentalism, deep and moody, drifting and chilled but tinged with intense dark elements. Fun to listen to if you have the time and want to really get into something, really listen to the whole album feel of things.

Zebra Katz - Ima Read (ft. Njena Reddd Foxxx)

Sin (x) Sin - free download



Sin (x) Sin does dreamy, drugged out, drum-heavy synth-pop for strange kids. It's like Zola Jesus suddenly getting proper evil and sexual. Its minimal stuff with strings and synths and  deep brooding vocals, throbbing along and curling around your sonic cortex.


Like a lot of people I'm blogging at the moment Sin (x) Sin is an artist more than just a musician. She's a writer, a musician and a freelance multimedia artist who works in a variety of fields, including experimental films, music videos, illustration, graphic design, and photography. 


She has a great album out on Black Lodge records which is available for free download!! Go get it.

Teengirl Fantasy ~ Green Door Store ~ 29th January

Blue Sky Black Death & Nacho Picasso - Lord Of The FLy



Blue Sky Black Death and Nacho Picasso, got together and created this album which is up for free download from Bandcamp, named Lord Of The Fly it's a 13 track deep low and slow wonder of southern inspired gothic rumbling bass heavy super slick dark drone alt hip-hop full of sparkling wonder that is licking up and down my ears right now, I'm sat on my bed tired as hell and this is just perfect, anything with rumbling bass drone riffs is good in my book but this is just awesome. 




Blue Sky Black Death are a producer duo and Nacho Picasso is a more than great rapper if this is anything to go by. Other than this I know little about each artist, but damn you gotta love that slow droning bass riff.

New Teams tracks!



Here's a few new and absolutely brilliant tracks by one of my hype bands of 2012 - Teams. the first is one done in collaboration with fellow Seapunk Indigo Bunting and its a free chill R&B masterpiece of dragged sex beats, lapping water and vintage glitter synths.

Sentimental feat. Indigo Bunting by Teams

The next track is a straight up funk grooved raver of a track called ღ ♋ ღ !!

ღ ♋ ღ by Teams

Lastly we have Teams remix of Picturplane's Boy Mod track, turning into an aquarium of seaside sparkle and cliff cave echo, jewel like waters slipping between your toes as your ears venture further into the cave of a track that it turns into. Go download them all fro free from Soundcloud.

Tennis Rodman- Death Of Slime mixtape



We only have a short time left, there isnt time to wash let alone listen to a whole mixtape, all over the internet stars are going out, lights dim, teeth rot, the make or break of the internet age is all around us, no-one has music genres dictated by a cohesive sound anymore, styles and visual sharing, mood boards of people create a scene, what does Seapunk sound like? It doesnt it "looks like" what is Slime punk its garbage pail kids gunging each other while listening to juke and eating pizza, high in their parents basement, sharing green slime pics via Tumblr and Twitter (long may they rest in peace.)


Seapunk is the thematic child of Nu Rave which was the child of Electroclash, Slimepunk is a daydream during winter, tentatively poking at the corpse of the internet hoping for the buds of spring, hoping there isn't a knock at the door.


Tennis Rodman is one such, making sounds, making a 15 minute Slimepunk mixtape 'cos we don't have time to listen to an hour, 'cos all the things that made 2011 culture so inclusive, so high to low, reference culture bouncing through cycles so quick they cant be commercialized, the new punk, Tumblr is Sid, Twitter is Nancy, all those things could be gone, sucked away so you can watch Hollywood movies the way they want you to.

Fatima Al Qadiri - How Can I Resist U




"Fatima Al Qadiri's 'How Can I Resist U' is a love letter to London in general and Dubstep (before it wobbled) in particular. "Lenden" as it's known has become a historic site of pilgrimage for wealthy Arabs seeking the forbidden fruits of sex, drugs and alcohol. 


Interspersed with Youtube footage of Ma'alaya dances specific to Gulf countries like UAE and Oman--the super cars, dancing girls and brutalist council estates in the video are part of the down-and-dirty dream that a trip to London signifies for Khaleejis (Gulf Arabs). The color of the video is based on an infamous Arab royal's custom 'Gulf Blue' Koenigsegg CCXR that terrorized the streets of the city's posh neighborhoods.

Replicant Embolisms is an EP of esoteric electronica and pulsing new wave light created by a band called Dolphin Logic. Its free to download from Bandcamp go get it and put some candles on you hippie.

SHOPPERS

This band are totally brilliant, this is hardcore punk in the grungy prog psychedelic noise vein that a band like Fucked Up or ...And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead or sometimes Sonic Youth do/did. Hailing from Syracuse NY, this mostly all girl band are called Shoppers and they kick ass through the wall. They also only number their songs not name them. Go listen to all their stuff on Bandcamp. Their LP Silver Year is available through Feeble Minds and Drugged Conscience .

Hear Hums.



Experimental hippie shit for your Sunday morning yeah? Hear Hums make experimental ambient noise pop, psyche improv, melodic and wobbly, all sampled up seaweed and echoing pine forest attic. Its lovely stuff for a hangover. Go listen to it on Bandcamp and buy it for $5 if you fancy.

Dynoo and the longest album title of last year.

Label under ambient avant-garde beat electronica.. my main reason for blogging this is the incredibly long and silly name of the album.. By an artist called Dynooo it is called: "I Feel Like Playing Sim City Straight From The Floppy And Run A Tornado All Over My Perfectly Functioning Town After I Put The Fire Department Way Too Far So They Wont Be Able To Help My Sim City People‏"
Other than that it's free to download from Bandcamp and sounds kinda nice if you like that sort of thing.

Whip Angels - Sex Death Rebirth

The Whip Angels are the sonic extension of Sex Death Rebirth, an online art collection curated by Jenna Kraus. This collaboration strives to arouse and awaken, exploring both the esoteric and erotic. 


The Whip Angels are dark brooding sensual and sexual sounding, lo-fi atmospheric and esoteric experimentation, sometimes Doom sometimes buzzing electronic whispered vocals and distortion. Lou Reed, Leonard Cohen style Vs My Bloody Valentine or NIN.


 Sex Death Rebirth are kind of a sex cult if you will, their blurb reads: 


[SEX][DEATH][REBIRTH] calls for a sexual renaissance. The contrast between sexual and spiritual invokes a powerful reaction. The de-institutionalization of religion; the personalization of the divine; sexuality as a spiritual celebration; intimacy as a spiritual path; orgasm as a permanent state.Remember How You Came: Sex as your Personal Creation Mythology. SEX: to interact with bodies; to connect with souls; to experience THE ONE. DEATH: of the EGO-SELF, of the ILLUSION of OTHERNESS, of FEAR REBIRTH: LOVE, UNION, CREATION, BEYOND... Memento Mori (Remember that you will die)


You can download some tracks from Soundcloud.

Why Beezy/DJ Yungbukkake

Why Beezy is like this Copenhagen producer/dj making future ghetto, slick but blown out, sketchy glitching clean and cool beats all nervous claps and speed ramped vocals; future city music for an imagined Tokyo gangster club.

Shock Diamond - Nails



"Set in a futuristic starcraft drifting through the multiverse, these songs are about the love, lust, and desire of Shock Diamond as he seduces polydrogynous aliens through transritualistsic hand-messenging and meta-energy exchange. On this album, Shock is disquised as a prodigeometric manicure artist, operating a salon-ship which doubles as his sensurreal altar of conceptual healthsorcery."


Nails is a Lo-Fi dance album by Shock Diamond, recorded while working at a nail salon in Brooklyn, NY for 4 months. It came out about about this time last year and is free to download from Bandcamp.

Chalices Of The Past.




Video for Catch My Fade by Chalices Of The Past, a brilliant acid house, skanking 8 bit tropicana of sounds, sped up vocals down tuned raps, distorted jungle bass and chillwave dreams. There's an album of "internet inspired" tracks called Yucatan Explorer which you can buy/download from Bandcamp on a "name your price" basis and which came out in April last year- its really good, well worth getting. A new release via Radical Ritual Tapes is coming soon which this video/single is from.

Mouse Sucks

Mouse Sucks does Wierdo alt R&B, Drake style, from Brooklyn. Slow low crooning style, lick you lady up and down, run to the window and draw manga characters in the steam, that kinda shit. Surprisingly listenable and way commercial but totally unsigned. One to watch.

\\\^◊^/// of MATER SUSPIRIA VISION feat. CARMEN INCARNADINE - She's on Drugs (Extended Version) Video tribute to 90s, drugs and Twin Peaks.

Astrozombies beats me to making a Fokkawolfe mixtape!!

Love how someone's done an 8Tracks mixtape of Witch House and called it Fokkawolfe!
Astrozombies is this Mexican dudes name and he's also done some music of his own -Ferdandez/Garrido - its a good and weird little throbbing synth piece, all tweaking 808 sounds and oldskool ravin.





Perseus - 2012 to future!

Perseus is cool, like tropical 90s house euphoria cool, like gospel vocal samples, piano stabs, dancing warm summer bass lines jittering out from keyboards more accustomed to the splash of cocktails and beach parties cool. This is PM Dawn for 2012. This is next gen psi dolphins swimming the streets of Harlem selling Fresh Prince t.shirts. This is sex music for karaoke parties wanting the groove and splash of free form acid house soul. Blam in your ears and all over the couch. Love this. Perseus has 2012 encoded into him all over!

[Physics] - Love Electrical EP



[Physics] smooth jamming summer sounds and glitching beats infused with warm synth texture and gloss are absolute winners for me. Its very much a Chillwave style sound, drifting and dreamy, [Physics] music as described by themselves is "digi psych retrofuturism" which just gives enough random words to accurately pin down their own peculiar brand of dream pop synth magic. Their "Love Electrical" EP is out on Amdiscs, as a limited edition tape. Or to download here.

Jesuslesfilles - Split Ep with The Peelies

What the hell do you mean guitar bands are dead, no one you have heard in a while sounds as vital and energized as they were when you were younger, you haven't heard anyone that kicks it like The Libertines, BRMC, The Pixies etc etc yawn. Well you just haven't been looking hard enough have you. Blam! Here's a band for you, Jesuslesfilles, they've been hanging out for a year or so, they have guitars and energy and they're French speaking to boot, these guys are from Montreal and they kick ass all over the place! They've just released a split record with The Peelies which you can get from Bandcamp for $5. Do it.

CSS - City Grrrl ft Ssion - STILL THE BEST TRACK AND VIDEO OF 2011

Pictureplane interviewed on Noisey.

Pyr▲mids of ▲▲ - the next three albums, all free to download.

Pyr▲mids of ▲▲ is one of my favorite artists of recent years but I keep forgetting to blog his latest releases. The first three EPs called tri▲ngulum, pyr▲mids and sp▲cedout   which I blogged and downloaded and played to death, but i've forgotten to download the latest 3 releases, summer trinity, atelier reverb and pattern//recognition. These are three great EPs and they are all free to download from Last.fm! Download them here, here and here.


Pyr▲mids of ▲▲ is an artist who plays lo-fi, reverb-drenched ambient/shoegaze swarming with heavy samples, ethereal atmospheres and dreamy impressionistic soundscapes. Its throbbing spacey stuff that is just brilliant. These three new EPs are all a bit more complex and structured but are essentially following the same ambient synth worlds. A few tracks are up on Soundcloud so you can listen to them below.

DARK SiSTER - Swag Hag



Dark Sister are two Tennessee girls making slow and low dark trance hip hop, with brilliant raps all thrash and trash, blood and sluts. Its a brilliant mix of sounds inspired by the mainstream charts as well as super zeitgeisty underground things. Way cool. Released on October 2011 their four track EP called Swag Hag is just  brilliant little jewel of an EP that is well worth the $5 to download it.

MELLOW GRAVE - Smoke Filled the Room, We Slept


Such an epic sound, rolling out like a tsunami, black and unstoppable, the darkest most epic of sounds to come out of a scene previously known as Witch House, these guys make gothic electronica soaked in the deep musty sweat of shoegaze, sprinkled with the shimmering candy of post rave and dipped in the festering guts of electroclash until the glitter and amphetamines soak through to its very soul. 
Mellow Grave are from Auckland, New Zealand and are a reason bigger and better than Lord Of the Rings to go live there. Damn these guys need to be Superstar DJs so bad. Go grab their album "Smoke Filled the Room, We Slept" from Bandcamp now.
