Showroom Dummies


DSC_0643

London based power trio ‘Showroom Dummies’ are just so much fun. Excellently overdone vocals, super drums and a plethora of sounds from unusual sources spice up their already delectable tunes brilliantly. A bit of info about the band:

‘Gigi (pronounced ‘gee-gee’ and he is not a girl!), Pharoah (now, that’s a name! he LOOOOVES tennis!) and Kevin (he speaks “Brezhoneg”) met at a warehouse party somewhere in East London. They were making some serious noise playing unconventional instruments (you know…those “never seen” instruments you’d find in the neighbour’s rubbish bin) until some drunken pointy shoes dude from Dalston said: ”hey guys, what’s your band called?”. Whether he was fooling around or not, they took it as a sign.’

Now that you know a bit about the scientists, familiarize yourselves with their experiments:

Dallas based full time accountant turned musician ,John Steen’, has some nice hummable tunes on his debut EP ‘Off the Ground’. We wish him all the very best for his career move and are digging the Pete Murrayish feel on his track ‘Nothing at All’:

A fun, edgy ride is how I would describe this track Dreamscape by Andrew Foster. Has a U2 like vibe displayed on their later songs like Vertigo, etc. This track will be available for free download on the 14th of october.. So, if you like it, set your reminders. As for now, enjoy the track:

Anthony Craig: A Disclosure


DSC_0652

Some emotional electro-trip-pop from UK based producer/singer/songwriter Anthony Craig comprises the majority of his debut album ‘A Disclosure’. Clearly very heartfully rendered, the vocals perfectly suit the mood of the album, but it is the blues and folks influences in the background which mix so well with the semi soft-dub vibe, that give this album a very layered sound and this creates very unique and engaging experience. Please listen to a few samples below:

If you like what you hear the album can be purchased at itunes or bandcamp:

Tiny Tiny: Evening and Everywhere After


tinyfiny

Earlier this year we shared their beautifully hazy and perfectly lazy single Coyote. In the meanwhile Tiny Tiny from Kentucky have completed their wonderful debut album ‘Evening and Everywhere After’. This album was recoreded @ the Bakery in Bowling Green, Kentucky, and in Boone’s apartment in Somerset, Kentucky. The album is experimental psychadelic pop with elements of upbeat acoustic thrown in for good measure. Like somehow someone crossed the Barenaked Ladies with the Syd Barrett era Floydians. Well, here are a few samples:

If you like what you hear please encourage them, spread the word and purchase their album here: http://tinytiny.bandcamp.com/album/evening-and-everywhere-after

Vera Flash: I am a museum


Very far from our signature selection of music shared on this website, Vera Flash’s video of her single Masochistic from her aptly titled debut EP ‘I am a Museum’ is just so … primal that we had to share it with the wider audience. Eloquence be damned, we are going with the sheer brilliance of bold sexiness for the moment:

I Am A Museum was recorded in Brooklyn, NY. If you like what you hear, listen to her other sounds here: https://soundcloud.com/veraflash/sets/i-am-a-museum

Movement Ten: Build and They Will Come (Preview)


DSC_0498
‘You want to wear me
like a beautiful outfit
now i’m embroidered
into your fabric
please push me down on
onto your mattress….’
And so on, go the lyrics on the song ‘Halo’ from Movement Ten’s soon to be released EP ‘Build and They will Come’.. If you ever had to restore your faith in that adage ‘You can come in more ways than one’, this is the album for it. Well, metaphorically speaking ofcourse! Powerhouse Synths, Kickass Vocals, Belter Rhythms and a perfect blend of so many influences ranging from Depeche Mode to Kraftwerk to Small Black. ‘Shadowless man’ and ‘The Sweet Chap’ take a bow! This album makes you dance, scream, experience extreme joy and is an ego boost and also stirs up some of your more philanthropic/philosophical instincts, especially in those mellow beauties like Children of the Marquee which in some ways could so easily be a George Harrison based Beatles’ track or a Pink Floyd track in one of the post Waters Albums. The album will officially be released on September 23rd, but they were kind enough to send us a preview. Please find below some samples from the album. We would definitely post more about this album when it comes out, but for now enjoy what’s out there:
