Hello music lovers! 🎵🎧🎵
Are you ready for #newtunes? This week I'm moving more into the area of lesser-known artists who are not exactly in the mainstream, who are on the fringes of the underground and avant-garde. You can only hear them if you dig deep into the details of releases from lesser-known and smaller labels.
Even in this strange, strictly niche-oriented field, there are interesting tunes I can recommend to everyone. You just have to listen :)
Maybe some of it will suit you for the coming weekend and stay in your ears for a while. But if you don't like something, skip it :) Music4life! 😁
Let's get started!
Fracture & Sam Binga - Omura
The Omura is an almost mystical, rarely seen creature of the tropical oceans. As the title track of a fresh electro album in collaboration between Fracture and Sam Binga, it introduces a vision of the intertwining of Earth's ecosystems, mythical creatures, and technology, realized through the romantic sounds of the Roland TR-808, a rhythm machine in play with synths in the background, which at times really do resemble the calls of a lone whale.
Iceage - Shake The Feeling
Iceage, Danish punks released an album with the slightly longer title 'Shake the Feeling: Outtakes & Rarities 2015-2021', which includes unreleased songs from the previous period. At the same time, they also made a video for the title song, which should have been on their second album 'Beyondless' in 2018, but was dropped.
Justified or not, you be the judge :)
Just Mustard - Mirrors
Just Mustard is an Irish shoegaze/post-rock band that released their second album 'Heart Under'. The first album 'Wednesday' was very well received, so the band is more confident, but on the second album, they are already sailing into completely new waters, which can be seen or heard in the change of vocals. The mystical soprano of new singer Katie Ball is complemented by guitar noise, effects, and off-key percussion.
The result is an unsettling and dark atmosphere, in which the softness of the vocals and the melancholy melodies stand out.
Slowmotion Livestream - Year
New musician for me. Matevž Kovačič, Slovenian producer and DJ, better known as Slowmotion Livestream, has just released his debut album 'Strange Repeats' after a few years of activity. The fusion of beats and diving into ambient waters is the main theme of this album and the author oscillates between these two styles in the songs.
A fusion of sounds that at times allow nothing but concentration on listening, and the next moment calmness and dynamics again. Recommended for fans of the genre.
Chat Pile - Why
Each of us dreams of a Promised Land where honey and milk flow instead of rot. Some look for this land in ancient texts, others in rural America. But there is no such thing anywhere.
A new name for me, sludge metal quartet Chat Pile confirms on their debut album 'God's Country' that everyone exists in their own unique slice of hell. An eclectic mix of angst, despair, and hysteria. Recommended.
Green/Blue - Moving On
Another new name for me. Green/Blue is a fairly young (2020), post-punk band from Minneapolis, USA. 'Paper Thin' is their third album, which came out in June this year, and their second album 'Offering' came out in January this year. Very productive, I'd say.
A combination of rhythmic straightness and sharp guitar riffs, enhanced by dreamy, reverberating vocals that build the rather authentic sound the band is known for. Recommended.
ELUCID: Smile Lines
New York-based rapper, hip-hop avant-garde and producer ELUCID announce his third album 'I Told Bessie', a tribute to the grandmother who kept him upright. Very personal and introspective, but strictly following his originality, he rises to the top of lyrically heavy, cryptic rap.
TEGH & ADEL POURSAMADI - Ijād ایجاد
Again a new surprise or new names for me. Two Iranian musicians, a multi-instrumentalist and a violinist, with great ambitions, with a desire for change, with the idea of creating a new form of musical language, more precisely, with a new idea of the world and of music, where tradition is a completely emptied form, without historical content and political implications, just a template ready to be filled with unencumbered, drone-futuristic, anti-organic and anti-anthropocentric melodies. Koyaanisqatsi is here again.
How did they do it? Listen, see for yourself the freshness.
ugh... there's a mess ... I need to change something ... this year ... maybe 😁
... anyway, if you're curious just click the dates and listen to songs ...
