WE FLOAT DROP DEBUT ALBUM & SINGLE
Saturday, 18 April 2015 00:00
 

Swedish/Norwegian Malmo based quartet We Float released their debut album last week, the dark, introspective, pop and jazz fused, Silence. The wordless wonder that is 'Mysticeti' is the first single and highlight from it. Spanning eight diverse tracks including the jazz inspired 'Echolocation', the slow soulful 'Farewell' and the pastoral closer, 'Vinden', the album glides by effortlessly but definitely leaves its mark. Stream 'Mysteceti' below. You may be able to grab the vinyl through contacting Swedish label Havtorn Records here.

THE INTELLECTUAL SHADES OF BREAKFAST
Friday, 17 April 2015 22:01
 

Los Angeles quartet BREAKFAST have to be one of the most intriguing and fiercely independent electro-pop outfits going around right now. The saccharine like sweetness on the surface is perfectly neutralised by the acute sense of unsettling reality lurking underneath that's evident both musically and lyrically. Nothing is ever a permanent beer and skittles situation and through all their three singles this year they not only know it, they live it through their art. So fuckin' smart and so fuckin' now. They'll take on everything and everyone. Check the swinging yet unsettling new single and dig at the US nail care giant 'Sally Hansen' below. Meanwhile their previous single 'Boris' still sits pretty in our Top 30.

TOP 30: BOAN BEAT OUT CHROMATICS, LOWER DENS & COEDS TO HIT TOP TEN ON DEBUT
Thursday, 16 April 2015 00:00
 

Austin based dark wave electronic outfit BOAN have made quite an impression around here in the last few days. Since the announcement of their debut album, Mentiras, set for a June release through Holodeck Records, the electrifying swoon of the title track has been on incessant repeat since it hit my ear canals. Seeing them live in San Francisco with Marie Davidson last night, where they expertly pulled off the "difficult to do" track live, reinforced just how good it is and they are. It debuts at 8. Read more about BOAN in our previous post from last Sunday.

Portland's Chromatics continue the slow build toward the release of their third album Dear Tommy with the gorgeously enveloping stomper, 'In Films'. That's in at 14.

Our Album Of The Week this week comes from Jana Hunter's Lower Dens project. Escape From Evil is a stunning slow builder of a pop record. On first impressions, its a little innocuous and it took us a while here to appreciate its true strengths. After all, we should have known better really. Superficiality and Hunter have always been sworn enemies and the record's understated timelessness will make a deep impression for a long while to come, for there are no weak tracks at all. 'Ondine' is the second single from it and enters at 18. Stream it below. 

The final new entry comes from Coeds with 'Sensitive Boys' who we featured last Saturday. That sneaks in at 30.

Big moves this week stemmed from The Japanese House, 'Pools To Bathe In' (12 to 4) and GRRL PAL, 'Seeing Anything' (15 to 9) while Finn Jaakko Eino Kalevi remains at Number 1 with the beautiful and sublime 'Double Talk'.

The Top Ten list can be found to your right, the entire 30 tracks can be found in all their glorious detail here and our Top 30 player is to the top right streaming each and every track from newest to oldest entry. The great tunes continue folks!

CHROMATICS RELEASE TRACK NO.3 FROM DEAR TOMMY
Tuesday, 14 April 2015 00:00
 

'In Films' is the third track to surface from the forthcoming Chromatics album Dear Tommy. Still no date for that yet that but Johnny Jewel's slow drip release methodology is enough to tide us over, especially when it's this good and it's free.

BOAN TO UNVEIL DEBUT RECORD
Sunday, 12 April 2015 05:17
 

Texas electronic duo BOAN, two thirds of the now defunct trio Medio Mutante are set to release their debut LP, Mentiras (Lies), and we have the haunting cold wave inspired title track to stream below. Made up of José Cota's celestial, pulsating analog synth work and Mariana Saldaña's hypnotic Spanish vocals, the track positively glides by transporting you to BOAN's unique intersection where intriguing melody meets taut discipline. Mentiras is out June 9 on Holodeck. BOAN are also on tour with Canadian experimentalist Marie Davidson now. Dates here.

WAXAHATCHEE NEW RECORD OUT THIS WEEK
Tuesday, 07 April 2015 00:00
 

Philadephia based singer/songwriter Katie Crutchfield releases her third record as Waxahatchee this week, the ethereal, yet earthy and unpretentiously diverse, Ivy Tripp. It's the first long player from the fiercely independent DIY artist since 2013's Cerulean Salt. Two tracks have surfaced from the album over the past three months, the Top 30 listed, 'Air' and the brief, but telling 'Under A Rock' below. 

Ivy Tripp materialised in a small rented room in Holbrook, Long Island with producer, bandmate and one time partner Keith Spencer and is essentially her restlessly melancholic  take on the complete disconnect between the mainstream conventional and the independent DIY worlds. And there's a sadness inherent in that take, a lament of sorts for, in her view, a mutual lack of understanding of expectations and assumptions.

The album is out this week on Merge in North America and Wichita elsewhere. Waxahatchee take the road for a three month long tour of North America, Europe and they'll even be making it to Australia for two shows in July. We'll catch them in Portland in May.

TORRES SPRINTS TOWARDS DEBUT ALBUM
Monday, 06 April 2015 00:00
 

Mackenzie Scott, the American singer-songwriter who goes by the band name Torres will release her ultra-impressive debut album, Sprinter next month and last week put out its equally impressive title track. The Georgia born artist penned the album in the middle of 2014 and then assembled an coterie of highly respected people to assist her in bringing it to fruition, among them backing band members Adrian Utley (Portishead) and Ian Oliver (PJ Harvey) as well as veteran producer/musician Rob Ellis. The PJ Harvey connection may lead some to quick conclusions. Simple word? Don't. 

Scott has said of the intimate and deeply personal album that while she was always going to put her own perspectives of her own story front and centre of the writing process, she chose characters to filter them through, avoiding the pitfalls associated with literal writing. Musically, it is unashamed in its rock sensibilities. Listen to 'Sprinter' below as well as another track from the record, 'Strange Hellos'. Sprinter is out May 5 in the US and May 18 in UK/Europe/R.O.W. through Partisan. Pre-order here.
 
Tracklist
 
1. Strange Hellos
2. New Skin

ETERNAL SUMMERS RETURN WITH GOLD AND STONE
Sunday, 05 April 2015 00:00
 

 
Roanoke trio Eternal Summers won an album of the week gong from us back in 2012 for the sublime rock that was their second album Correct Behaviour. For some reason last year's The Drop Beneath didn't have the same effect here as perhaps it sounded too similar. However, the first single, 'Together Or Alone' from their new record Gold And Stone, out in June, has regained our attention. Nicole Yun's guitar alternates between a hook filled riff and powerful and hypnotic chord work while Jonathan Woods bass work winds about providing a strong backdrop. Gold And Stone is out on June 2.
 
Tracklist
 
1. Unassigned
2. Together or Alone
3. Gold and Stone
4. The Roses
