Decoration



Graduation film from the Royal College of Art, 2011 by Ben Wheele An elegant vase inhabits the body of a young girl, and re-stages an event from her childhood using living tissue. A sci-fi Baroque fairy tale, literally dripping with misanthropic venom...

My latest music video!



My first full proper video that I've directed. Milk & Biscuits - "White Noise"
"A girl finds an old camera washed up on the seashore that takes photos of auras around people and things, she then goes on an adventure, encountering the band and capturing the auras she finds on film."

Rhythm of the Night (Spirit Guide Feelings Mix) video

ANCIENT TIMES


Ancient Times a local Brighton band with a sound so fucking authentic to a 1980s Smiths-esque aesthetic its blinding genius. Love this sound, the roughness and scuzzy lo-fi quality with spangly glittering guitars and deep melancholic vocals. Other than knowing where they are from and that they are way young I know very little else, it could even just be one dude and not a whole band. Brilliant. One track is available to download.

Bare Pale


Fogged out shoegaze from London from a guy called Bare Pale. There are six tracks up on his Soundcloud all the recordings are as lo-fi and washed out, scuzzed and blurred as could be, and each one is a gem. This dude is excellent. All the tracks are available to download so go check out the Soundcloud page.

New ARPEGGI8 and Whitely collaboration.


Here's some new tracks from ARPEGGI8 in collaboration with fellow Seapunk artist Whitely. Nice chilled out spacey ambient pieces, like the soundtrack to some epic n64 underwater platform game. Both tracks can be downloaded for free from the Soundcloud players below.

Crescent ParC by Seabat


A brilliant record that is totally Seapunk without intending to be... both in visually and sonic terms, ocean sounds, ambient soundscapes, dolphin calls, water drops, etc. Crescent ParC by Seabat is available on green 12" vinyl or as a download from Bandcamp. Both ways cost.

LOL GURLZ


Just as the brilliant LOL Boys have taken a permanent hiatus up comes an artist taking the mirror of the name.. LOL GURLZ. Grimey URL sounds, trap and Seapunk. No downloads yet. Go stream through their Tumblr for funzies.

Smörgåsbord (3 Flavors) by Super Buddies


Smörgåsbord (3 Flavors) by Super Buddies is an eclectic sounding album ranging between great mid-fi post punk, ambient soundscapes and slick downbeat. That's because its a three way split EP from How Scandinavian, Donny Yen and Andrew Henry.

Stoned Boys live footage



Two great videos of Russin post-rave wonder kids Stoned Boys playing live at some festivals this summer.

Brendan Codey


Sometimes you just come across a really really good guitar based record from some unknown.. today is one of those days.. 

Brenden Codey is the band, a trio from Philidelphia, they have an EP out called Casco. Its six tracks of timeless classic amazing americana, strains of Neil Young filtered through post rock and shoegaze all the while keeping a watchful eye out for beautiful dynamics, melodies, hooks and all the gubins that proper old-skool song writing provided for the ear. 

This band are amazing and you should definitely go buy the Casco EP on cassette from Treetop Sorbet Records here. You can also download the songs as .wav files from their Soundcloud here.

WHITE HEX


Avant! Records have a definite sound, a cold post punk gothic nuance  that pervades all of their artists and has me blogging about their releases quiet regularly. 

White Hex are an Australian duo, these tropical goths have a great melancholic guitar bass and drums combination, full of reverb rich vocals and constant strumming baselines. Brilliant. 

Their 12" LP - Heat is out on Avant! now. You can also download their record from the Avant! Bandcamp for €5.

Soft Lighting - So Good video



Soft Lighting free downloads.


"Soft Lighting is the solo work of Bryan Cox, Kansas City based musician/producer. Equipped with a Juno 60 and a bedroom studio, Cox makes his own brand of light headed pop music influenced by Italo Disco, 80s film soundtracks and contemporary Chillwave artists."

This guy is amazing, a big output and all of it killer. He's handily put all of his free Soundcloud downloads into one set, which is embedded below.

You can also go and buy his Glamour Shots EP for $1 from his Bandcamp. Its great go get it.

PSY "Gangnam Style" Slowed 500%



*all time stretched remixes are piece of art, the same piece remade again and again like a Warhol being reproduced or the same Fluxus joke being shown again and again. That's what makes each and everyone brilliant and legitimate.

Here is PSY's "Gangnam Style" slowed by 500% by Dirty Knobs.

PINS - LUVU4LYF video



PROSYMNA - Ascend (Directed by Cosmotropia de Xam)

SILENX

Night headaches, glossy streets, glittering keys in spotlit motion, the moon like a boiling disco ball glowering out over a Miami backwater, driving till your teeth ache, sun in your eyes, no way back, echoing signals relayed across infinity, reverb rich and drenched in a universal beach vibe, planet to planet galaxy to galaxy, always the same, dancing under foreign skies on alien drugs, time and distance no longer relevant, beach parties in the outer rim of a distant spiral arm of the Andromeda galaxy, lost amongst the waves, calling out into the night, the sky shimmering with every possible party out there, rev the engine, smile, sit back watch the counter tick into the red, release and away, forever looping to another beach on another world, for ever.

A new find... Silenxthis artist hails from Portugal and makes 80s feeling chillwave Balaeric sounds all synthed up to the max. There are a whole heap of free downloads on his Soundcloud so you should go check it out.

Afrika Pseudobruitismus - ALBEDO


White noise tranced-out psychedelia with aspiration to leave this realm and venture into the astral sonic plain.. Afrika Pseudobruitismus album 'ALBEDO' is out on Amdiscs. Donload it all below from the Soundcloud player.

Cursewords


Cursewords describes himself as a "True KVLT producer. One with the Night. #Gravewave #YODO" (I'm guessing that stands for "you only DIE once") 

This is someone out of St Louis making Witch House in the style reminiscent of Salem but harder and faster and potentially more epic sounding. Stand out tracks are Wintermute and Teen Huffing. Quality Okvlt buzzing synths, dreamy vocals and industrial death beats.

All Soundcloud tracks are free to download.

Bijou, Icelandic glo-fi future step.


Bijou describes herself as "Dream Faerie, I make music while living in the forest. She is a girl from Iceland who makes ethereal drifting spider web music, quite half sung/spoken songs all quiet and magical like a more gothic Boards Of Canada. Minimal, slow and atmospheric, she also collaborates widely with a whole slew of glo-fi, ambient artists, her sleepy whispering vocal style fitting perfectly. She also records soundscapes and acapella vocal tracks, all of which are up on her Soundcloud and available to download and play with.


She's also made a blinding mixtape, like really really good! Plus I've heard of very few of the artists on it. Check it out:

Some Ember - Hotel Of Lost Light


Some Ember make epic atmospheric indie, full of sounds, moods and ethereal majesty as much as synths, percussion and haunting wailing vocals. Its beautiful, different and sonically captivating. Their album Hotel Of Lost Light is free to download. (Download itdirect from the Soundcloud player below.) Or go over to the Crash Cymbols label to order a very limited cassette version.



Their most recent track is equally epic but so much more 80s in sound terms, a killer catchy synth masterpiece with deep reverb drenched vocals.

Cuss Words - Y'ALL AIN'T SHIT


Cuss Words are as prolific as they are talented as they are varied, this latest self release takes a more clean and British psychedlic route than past shoegaze releases, sounding at points like Sid Barrett era Pink Floyd while at others it goes all Neil Young '70s contemplative rock with country-esque tinges. Brilliant songs, brilliant production, brilliant hooks and lyrics.. everything about this band is straight up killer! The album is available to download for $7 from Bandcamp. Get it its worth it.
