WhistleJacket is some band or dude from London making beautiful droney shoegaze inspired sounds all minimal and rudimentary, full of psychedelia and guitar loving wonder. Post punk lost beneath a wave of reverb and warm muffled joy.

I wrote about URRRGH in January of this year, and having revisited his Soundcloud I see there are a whole lot of new tracks up, really good, really mellow minimal barely there RnB ambient stuff, slow low and ponderous and damn beautiful. Pop melodies creeping out of confidently restrained beats and soundscapes, feeling somehow scandivain in a Fever Ray styley. The track Encarta is especially killer. Lots of the tracks on his Soundcloud are free to download so grab them.

Discordant 8 bit free jazz rave sounds from Dux Content, this feels like two opposing early 90's computer games got mashed together over someone improvising on a keyboard, but yet it still sounds good. A tough one. There are a few free downloads to be had from their Soundcloud go check it all out here.
New video and more erotic French rap from Orties.

BLACK RAINBOVV has been around since the beginning of Witch House way back when, coining a mysterious catchphrase of "VV Ξ H Λ V Ξ P Λ Я † Y @ H Λ U N † Ξ D P L Λ C Ξ S " But BLACK RAINBOVV has always been making a slowed down and sampled up goth rave sound all of his own, part RnB, part Disco, part end of the world. Totally brilliant unique and genius in its remixing. So finally there is a full collected version of his tracks all up on Bandcamp and they're free to download.
PrismViews full length album.. "Feel The Drip" is a multi genre pillaging record taking all it needs and wants from Witch House, post trance, 8 bit, shoe-gaze, lo-fi electronica and essentially electroclash.. its ecclesiasticism and free form sound combines to great effect though and as a full body of work becomes a great sounding album. Stand out tracks below. Download for free from Bandcamp.

Describing music with genre-specific terms is fraught with difficulty and pitfalls that people are all to willing to jump all over you for, so sometimes its hard to describe a genre or a sound an artist is making other than to say it fucking slays.. and Unoknwn fucking slays. I'm not going to label this sound other than to say its too current and way future. Blam, have it!
I've drunk a lot of coffee this morning and maybe I'm a bit spaced right now but this new track by the usually quite abrasive Spf5Ø is just the most dreamy glo-fi trance shit ever, its just the most celestial orbiting drifty happy ambience. So good. Free to download from the Soundcloud player below.

Ellie Herring has a new EP out called Mend The Angle.. it very good, so very very good. I spent this morning listening to that Will.i.am and Britney single a bit too much and then went over to listen to this EP and the production is just seamless, so well done and so ahead of some imagined curve, brilliant. Slow rave hip hop with a real pop dance vibe. Track two is especially ace. Th EP is all available to download for free from the Soundcloud player below. Blam!
I swear this dude used to make Witch House.. now a fully fledged Trap exponent God Mode or G̖̳̞̬͇̼̫̯͖͖̓̍͛ͮ͠͞Ö̡͙͓̞͔́̇ͩ͊̈̄̊͋̊̅͢͡͝D̴̴͕̥͎͓̱̘̟̼͙̩̘̺͎͎̜͔̝̩̎̋͊͑ͬͪͥͫͭ Mͯ̔̌̂ͦ͏̷̵̢͚̦͙͈͈͙͜Ö̡͎̰͔̣͔͓́ͯ͊͛̒̈ͮͥͪ́̚̕͝Ḓ̸̡̨̙̱̹̱͙̪͓̿̈́ͬͩE̓͂̊̈̌ͣ̑̉̕̕͞͏̳̹̝͍̜͚̖̭̬̠̙ has only three tracks up on Soundcloud but they are all pretty excellent nasty heavy things and free to download as well.

"We speak ov time and mind, which do not easily yield to categories . We separate past and future and find that time is an amalgam ov both. We separate good and evil and find that mind is an amalgam ov both. To understand we must grasp the whole."
DENIRO by ENIX INRI is an EP of arcane proportions, five tracks of electronic third eye post meta vibes. Free to download from Bandcamp.
РΣ▲ϾΣ ⱧΣȊL★ is one Andrew Cocain from New Zealand, making drag and screwed hip-hopa dn with house style tracks, remixes and re-edits, all doped up and blissfully tempo reduced into a cacophony of echo and delay washing up and out into blissed out chillwave sounds and seapunk intonations.

Pang Attack is the band and when the guitar hits on that first track of their Phantom Forest EP, you will find it hard not to fall in love with this sound, then as the singular piano notes chime and the vocals arrive it just cements it all so much more. Melodic and beautiful, harmonies and electronica blending with instruments and ambience. Properly good. Its free to download from Bandcamp and you would be a fool to let it slip by.

Tumblr couture beats and deep emotionally rich synth moods conjoined in horror stroking and lapping at each other with gay abandon. Essentially its just one long wicked riff, smoothly dirging along through the 3 minutes 44 seconds, creating a droning majestic wonder of a track that you can download for free from டாண்டலாஸ்o aka Frank A Mente's Soundcloud.

Spring rain sunshine glittering into existence down cold grey walls of winter flats with central heating rumbling away fighting out the cold and wind, like rainbows of light prism thrown and ethereal spluttering with joy into every corner of the darkening room, like that only with more gusto and summer promise, Chillwaves never die, retro synths and choral effects never lie, welcome back to the summer.
If for only 45 minutes or so, until the glistening strains of GPSYMTH echo from the room and winter returns to stalk you. Ripostes, out three months ago is a 9 track wonder by 20 year old Peter Quinn aka GPSYMTH. It can be downloaded for a small amount of money at his Bandcamp.
I've been away with the perils of an IRL existence, don't blame me blame my corporal form bound to this earth unable to traverse the mean streets of URL living free and unfettered. But I haven't left you for good here we are agian wiyh a whole slew of great music starting with the awesome Mushy and her track I Dont Care, an epicly doom laden dirge of orchestral spiritualised vocal intoning, copy and repeat into one long beautiful anthemmic goth gospel. So good, too good. Download it for free from the Mishka Soundcloud now.
