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’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.
LUUUL and Petit Biscuit are back at it, releasing the second track off their upcoming collaborative album as Mount Dreams. Following a similar train of thought from their debut release, Wolfs, you can really hear the influence of both artists in Night Dive. I’m sure the album will be one to look out for. Enjoy.
Mount Dreams is LUUUL and Petit Biscuit, and while their first single Wolfs isn’t quite the sound I expected, it is still a damn good one. Petit Biscuit comes from the experimental side of electronic production and LUUUL is more likely to put out an ambient electronic/indie piece; Wolfs takes the form of an indie pop/rock track that serves as the first glimpse of their upcoming album as Mount Dreams, one that’ll surely be worth looking out for. Enjoy.
Using some vocals from Jœy Ugh, Petit Biscuit‘s latest original composition is the ethereal Sleepless. The French producer has continued to impress with each and every release this year and leaves me wishing there was a little more to his catalogue. But alas we’ll just have to keep what we have on repeat. Enjoy.
Delicate vocals, a sprinkling of beats and a hit of bass, all laid over a base of acoustic soundcape; that is what you’ll find on Burn Water‘s Shelter. Burn Water continues to impress me each and every release. If the Western Australian resident isn’t on your radar, you should probably go ahead and amend that. Enjoy.
At the end of the month we will have ourselves a new full length album from Andy Othling. Working under the moniker of Lowercase Noises, Andy is capable of making some intensely emotive music, as made evident by his newest single, and first ever video, Famine and the Death of a Mother. This Is For Our Sins is the final project that the single will live on, and given the story that Andy has set out to tell I imagine it will be quite the journey. Pre-order your copy of the album. to get an instant download of the single. Enjoy.
This album follows the story of the Lykov family, who lived isolated in the Russian wilderness for over 40 years before their discovery by geologists in 1978.
Agafia, born in the wilderness in 1943, is the last remaining member of the family. She continues to live in the harsh Siberian landscape to this day.
