I was walking home today and I decided that was a good enough excuse to throw on Nick Leng‘s magical 2014 single Walking Home (any excuse will do really) when I realised that I hadn’t heard anything from the San Diegan producer in a while, so it was about time I checked in. Well when I finally got to my computer, low and behold not only does he have new material, but he has released his debut EP. Inside Your Mind was released through MrSuicideSheep and features the wonderful Carmody and sits alongside Leaves and the title track Tunnels and Planes. I could sit here all day and tell you why you should check Nick Leng out, but I’ve got study to get to, and Tunnels and Planes pretty much sums it up perfectly. Enjoy.
I meant to post the opening song from this EP when I first heard Moving On a week or so ago, but by the time I got around to do it I figured I’d continue on the path of laziness and wait for the full project to drop. Well now Revision EP is here and I have no more excuses to keep Tabrill from you. As I was going to say, it opens with Moving On which is co-produced by Feki (who you may have seen up here with his Odesza remix) and the other three songs feature vocals from Domonic or Rachael Noakes and it is of exceptional quality. Tabrill himself doesn’t know what genre of music he makes, so I’m not going to attempt it, just hit play and decide for yourself. Enjoy.
Now, if you were to go over to Monsoonsiren‘s facebook page you’ll find the description “I make cinematic funeral music”. This is something that you can somewhat feel throughout his newest release though Project Mooncircle. Falstrati showcases Monsoonsiren‘s delicate falseto and his storytelling, especially in some darker areas, over the top of glitchy production from Go Yama, Insightful, Laplace and Galimatias. This is all pieced together so beautifully that you could be forgiven for missing the significantly melancholic themes underlying the EP. Enjoy.
I’ve gone back to a pretty intense uni schedule so I’d expect a fair amount of my study music popping up here, which is hopefully something you won’t mind at all given that it includes things like like Esbe‘s latest, Bloomsday. Experimental instrumental hip hop with elements of ambient, jazz, soul, lounge and electronic music, all effortlessly combined with a healthy sprinkle of sampling, is probably the best way to describe the music that you’ll find below. It’s definitely worth lending an ear to. Grab it through Cult Classic Records or his own bandcamp. Enjoy.
Still trying to catch up on the releases from 2014 and apparently there’s still a lot of deserving material not yet on these pages. So that’s how you’ve ended up hearing Jack Garratt on this Sunday afternoon. Jack is a multi-instrumentalist and producer who happens to have a hypnotising voice (his live shows are not to be missed as he seamlessly incorporates all three aspects himself). The Love You’re Given is the latest single and I’ve also attached Worry, from his 2014 debut EP (and the accompanying remix EP). Stream everything he’s put out on Spotify and grab a download on iTunes. Enjoy.
2014 was a big year for Japanese Wallpaper, and the young Melbourne based producer decided to close the year off with bang. Releasing a remix to the lead single off of Montgomery‘s New Clear War EP, as well as a full EP of remixes to the singles he released during the year. Check out Japanese Wallpaper‘s wonderful take on Piñata and remixes from the likes of Sable and cln below. Enjoy.
St. South. Every damn time I see that name it’s attached to some music that treats my ears ridiculously well. Hold is the newest from the Fremantle based electronic, indie, soul (etc.) musician. Check below for a stream and a video, and if you’re after a download, and perhaps giving a little review of your own, just click here. Enjoy.
