KORALLREVEN'S SUBLIME SECOND COMING
Saturday, 04 October 2014 00:00
 

Swedish electronic duo Korallreven are set to return with their second record, the aptly titled Second Comin'. For those of you familiar with the work of Daniel Tjäder (Radio Dept.) and Marcus Joons, the new album will be a reassuring ride with its tropical and Balaeric disposition. However, Second Comin' represents a step forward for the duo in that new unpredictable elements have been added to their songwriting approach in terms of collectively, style, texture and structure. Yes, those familiar sun soaked synths and robust rhythms still abound but as tracks 'Spirit Away' and 'The Highest State of Grace' demonstrate, there is a certain club feel about as well as nods to global instrumentation. Clocking in at a tick under 50 minutes, this is also a substantially longer record than their first released back in 2011, An Album With Korallreven. And it's not a second too long.  

With lead track 'Death Is Not For Us' hitting the Top 30 this week, check out new single, 'Spirit Away' featuring the ethereal vocals of Stockholm artist China Yggström below. Fellow Swedes I Break Horses and Japanese experimentalist Keigo Oyamada (Cornelius) also feature, the latter on 'Try Anything Once' originally released as a single/EP last year. Second Comin' is out November 4 through Cascine (ignore who will be releasing it in Europe - that almost stopped us from featuring it). Grab the vinyl on pre-order here. This is an exceptional second record from Tjäder and Joons and arguably the best 50 minutes you'll spend with music this year. Highly, highly recommended.

Big moves for Mr Twin Sister and Ariell Pink this week as both entered the top 10 with 'In The House Of Yes' (4) and 'Put Your Number In My Phone' (5) respectively. There are five new ones, all artists that we have featured over the past week except the debut at 21 of the first single from their upcoming second long player, 'Death Is Not For Us' from Swedish electronic pop trio Korallreven. We love these guys. Look out for a post in the next few days regards the new album and a new track as well.

Grand Courriers enter at 20 with 'Taking', The Luxembourg Signal are in at 23 with 'She Loves To Feel The Sun' and Populous teams up with Cuushe to deliver 'Fall' at 25. Mini Dresses complete the quartet with 'Other Ones' at 27.

Teengirl Fantasy's new track with Lafawndah moves up eight spots to 15 while last week's debut tracks by Bad Blocks, 'Lunar' and FKA Twigs 'Pendulum' both shot up six spots to 13 and 14. Lydia Ainsworth remains at number one with 'PSI' for the third week running.

GRAND COURRIERS RETURN WITH TAKING
Thursday, 02 October 2014 00:00
 

We first featured Minneapolis duo Donald Christiaan Lawson and Brady Lundy's Grand Courriers project back in March and their first single 'Rejoice'. While we were very much impressed by that, we're even more so by their latest track 'Taking', a soaring, wide eyed, brass driven cinematic experience that, at a click over three minutes, is over all too quickly. Take a listen below and look our for their four track debut EP in November.

FIRST POPULOUS LP IN SIX YEARS A TRIUMPH
Wednesday, 01 October 2014 00:56
 

Italian artist/producer Andrea Mangia dropped his first solo record in six years this week under his Populous moniker. Entitled Night Safari, it features appearances and collaborations from Japanese electronic dream pop artist Cuushe and Swiss artist/producer Iokoi as well as fellow Italian electronic music luminaries Clap! Clap!, Digi G'Alessio and Giorgio Tuma and the mysterious non-national producer DJ Khalab.

It's very much a global affair with a focus on the nocturnal taking in Indigenous elements from Africa, West Asia and South America through a myriad of samples and field recordings. There's also European influences, most notably the synth driven Elektronische musik of c. 70's Germany. If only we lived in the progressive, borderless post-colonial world of Populous. Well, at least we can internalise the awe inspiring ride that is Night Safari. We've assembled the first two singles below, 'Vu' and 'Brasilia' and look out for his collaboration with Cuushe in the Top 30 chart out Friday. Grab the album on vinyl through Interbang's Folk Wisdom subsidiary here. No turntable? Bad Panda has the digital here.

MINI DRESSES UNVEIL THIRD EP
Tuesday, 30 September 2014 04:11
 

Lo-fi Boston dream pop outfit Mini Dresses have just released their new five track EP, Three. First surfacing in Austin back in 2012, the band have released two EP's (hence the title above), a 7" single and an assorted of home recordings. Inspired by an assorted array of 80's indie luminaries, (you can spot them earwise yourselves) filtered through an 8-track recorder, Three is another step forward for the now duo of Lira Mondal and Caufield Schnug who have another release due in about a month or so. The standout track on the EP the closer 'Other Ones', which will surface in this week's Top 30 countdown. In the meantime, whet your analog, scuffed up dream pop appetite with a free download of reverb filled opener, 'In Two' below. Grab the EP for a name your price arrangement here.

THE LUXEMBOURG SIGNAL RELEASE A DEBUT FOR THE AGES
Friday, 26 September 2014 05:23
 

A veteran group of transatlantic indie pop artists well known to each other and middle aged indie tragics everywhere recently came together to form a new dream pop band The Luxembourg Signal and are set to drop their impressive debut record on all formats next month. Formed from bands such as Aberdeen, Fonda and Trembling Blue Stars, Beth Arzy, Brian Espinosa, Johnny Joyner, Betsy Moyer and Ginny Pitchford form a powerful arsenal and have produced an album of 10 tracks that drift authoratively and futuristically through vintage forms of dream and twee pop, alt and noise rock and shoegaze. We've collated three tracks from the release, the chord driven 'We Go On', the melodious 'She Loves To Feel The Sun' and the first to feature earlier this year, the hard hitting 'Distant Drive'. Originally slated for a release through Shelflife next week, the self titled debut has been pushed back to October 21. Pre-order the vinyl here

 
Tracklist
 
1. Dying Star
2. Distant Drive
3. Heaven

TOP 30: LYDIA AINSWORTH TO 1, FKA TWIGS, BAD BLOCKS, TEENGIRL FANTASY & MR NASTI DEBUT
Thursday, 25 September 2014 07:50
 

Four new entries and a new number one this week. The debuts are kicked off by Melbourne based New Zealand duo Hamish Lang and Daniel Neeve, aka Bad Blocks with the first single, 'Lunar' off their soon to be released EP, Circulate. The spatially ambient and precision beat laden track is in at 19.

Continuing her presence in the Top 30 at 20 is London artist FKA Twigs in the form of the patiently, expertly crafted 'Pendulum'. It follows up her former number one track, 'Two Weeks' which just fell from the chart after some 12 weeks in.

We fell for experimental electronic duo Teengirl Fantasy's last LP, Tracer and now the New York based artists are set to release a new EP, Thermal. The single from it, 'Lung' is in at 23 and has a reassuringly familiar yet progressive sound and features the awesome vocals of Tehran born and now Brooklyn based Lafawndah.

The new entries are completed by Mr Nasti, the nom de guerre of now Iowa based Nicholas Naioti. He's just released his second record, Truth Sound along with dripfeeding out three singles to promote the long player. We reckon the slow build of 'Change It' is the best of them with the duelling vocals of Naioti himself with Anna Gebhardt of Annalibera and its generally pensive disposition. It debuts at 28.

Menawhile, Lydia Ainsworth has shot to number one with the glorious 'PSI', from her equally glorious new album, Right From Real and big moves were afoot from all four of last week's new entries, all of which nestle in between 9-12.

The four new entries can be found below and includes a free download of the Bad Blocks track.

LYDIA AINSWORTH DELIVERS STRIKING DEBUT LP
Wednesday, 24 September 2014 07:26
 

Next week sees the physical release of the debut album, Right From Real, from one of our favourite new artists of this year, Lydia Ainsworth. The Canadian electronic pop experimentalist has quietly gone about honing her vocal and songwriting craft exploring the ethereal worlds of film scores, orchestral music, opera and pop noir. The result is a futuristic triumph as she welds together all of these elements and more into eight pieces of exquisite musical architecture. Two of the tracks have appeared in our Top 30 recently, 'Malachite' and currently 'PSI' while those and two others appeared in the form of the taster same named EP back in June. One that didn't was the chopped up otherworldliness of 'Moonstone'. Right From Real is available for pre-order on vinyl through Arbutus here. It's out September 30. Highly recommended.

Tracklist
 
1. Candle
2. White Shadows
3. Malachite
4. Take Your Face Off

GENRE HOPPING WITH YAWN'S SECOND ALBUM
Tuesday, 23 September 2014 08:11
 

 
A couple of weeks back Chicago kaleidoscopic pop/rock quartet YAWN released their excellent second album, 'Love Chills', indication of their growing songwriting and virtuosity. Tracking through multiple genres, the musically adventurous and ambition filled outfit is outward reaching in its experimentalism and far from having their back turned, each track reaches out and connects big time. It's genre hopping character is no better evident than in the two tracks featured below, the rock jam 'Flytrap' (complete with new video) and the enveloping 'Wasting, Waiting' When combined with the best track on the album and our current No. 7 track on the Top 30, 'What's In The World', you should get the drift. Love Chills is digitally out now on Old Flame Records - a CD release is set for next month - no vinyl unfortunately.

TOP 30: CLARK, CLIENT LIAISON, MR TWIN SISTER, J FERNANDEZ AND THE ONE AND ONLY ARIEL PINK DEBUT
Friday, 19 September 2014 07:23
 

Veteran Berlin based DJ/Producer Chris Clark leads the new entries this week with the ethereally propulsive, 'Unfurla'. It sees him at the top of his game which makes the release of his forthcoming self titled album as Clark a mouth watering prospect. Unfurla hits at 17. Close behind at 18 is Client Liaison, who we featured earlier in the week with 'Queen'. Long Island quintet, Mr Twin Sister, formerly minus the Mr, release their second full length next week, also self titled. It's almost three years to the day since the release of the grand, In Heaven. The third track to surface from it is the enigmatic night inspired, 'In The House Of Yes' and that debuts at 20. At 21 is J Fernandez, who we featured yesterday with 'Cosmic Was'. 

Rounding out the new entries this week at 25 is none other than that walking pop encyclopaedia from Los Angeles, one Ariel Marcus Rosenberg. Yes, Ariel Pink is back with a brand new double album, Pom Pom, set for release on November 17. Minus his Haunted Graffiti, Pink goes solo this time, although in typical ambiguous fashion he has stated, "this is the first “solo” record credited to my name, it is by far the least “solo” record I have ever recorded". The record's first single, the lovingly and weirdly wistful, 'Put You Number In My Phone' is almost a hybrid between 'Only In My Dreams' from Mature Themes and his collaboration with Jorge Albrecht from last year, 'Hang On To Life'. 
 
Yawn, 'What's In The World', moves into the Top 10 while Free Time remains at 1 with 'Esoteric Tizz'.
