Negativland – Speech Free [Seeland]

Really neat music, with ambient noise, some cool drum machines and noises that make my brain go “brrrrrr”. It had some of the same beats and various other tones that reminds me somewhat of Squarepusher. Definitely for those who like unusual music. RIYL: “Library Music”, Cluster, Matmos,Faust, Swingle Sisters, Happy the Man, Esquivel,Steve Fisk, Thurston Moore […]

SSJ4WEED – A song about the ocean [BRAGALA RECORDS]

SSJ4Weed’s newest single is a long ambient track featuring beautiful shining synths and ocean sounds. The track is very calming and meditative; it ebbs and flows with some additional higher-pitched synths at times. The Bragala Records artist continues to shine!

The Comet Is Coming – Hyper-Dimensional Expansion Beam [Impulse!]

On this London-based Band’s last orbit around the universe, The Comet Is Coming synthesized an interstellar, psychedelic, astro-funk album in the realm of electronica. This new release delves heavily into electronic and synthesized beats, while tying in Earthly horns and other jazz instrumentation. The experimental sound will be sure to put you in a daze […]

“sekret” (single) – ronela hajati

So you didn’t win Eurovision this year. So you got eliminated in the semi-finals, despite being heavily favored to win the whole shebang. So the jury allegedly penalized you for your dance moves, despite the fact that you whipped a solid four-plus feet of hair extensions, helicopter-like, for nearly two full minutes. Good news, Ms. […]

System Exclusive – System Exclusive [Castle Face]

Synth-heavy dance-punk inspired by the 2000s New York scene. Vocals are reminiscent of Karen O at times. Producer Enrique Tena Padilla’s portfolio includes work with Osees, Wand, & Beach House. This record is also approved by Henry Rollins (if that means anything to you). Great stuff! Play: 1, 4*, 5, 11 RIYL: LCD Soundsystem, Yeah […]

Defrag – “GlassShip” (Single) [Hymen]

It’s difficult to judge an artist’s whole body of work off of one single, so I’m not entirely sure that Defrag’s “development as a composer has violently touched every genre” as the promo blurb insists, but this particular single touches down somewhere between goth rock and ambient, with a soupçon of vaporwave thrown in for […]

Birthday Massacre – Dreams of You (Single)[Metropolis]

Very cool, “dreamy” but dark electronic tune. FCC: Clean RIYL: Collide, Ayria, Angelspit

Mako Bron – Straight Down [Marshmallow Pavement]

Straight Down is Mako Bron’s second single release in 2021, and the second single from his forthcoming EP. Exhibiting Mako Bron’s ability to compose sophisticated alt-pop, Straight Down pulses with connective big-picture energy. RIYL: Talk Talk, Psychedelic Furs FCC: Clean

Odonis Odonis – Spectrums [Felte]

From promoter: “On Spectrums, Odonis Odonis showcase the extreme ends of their musical margins. Embracing a love of ‘80s goth and darkwave melodicism while maintaining an industrial strength intensity, the dualities of their sound are revealed in a striking new light. With four albums under their belts, the Toronto-based duo of Dean Tzenos and Denholm Whale […]

Benjamin Lew & Steven Brown – Douzieme Journee: Le Verbe, La parure, L’amour [Crammed Discs

This is sooooo out there. Trippy, funky, but really weird and squeaky. Great combination of things. Recommend: #3,5,6. RIYL: Can, John Hassell. FCC: Clean

Reveries – Innervoice [2814962]

Really enjoyable electronic duo that reminds me of M83, Postal Service, and Alvvays. Short EP that packs a punch!
