Inca Maps: Weave


DSC_0827_openWith-Edit-2.jpg

A very promising debut single Weave’ by London based quartet ‘Inca Maps’ is the perfect summer accompaniment. Synth poppish but with a touch of R&B, Matt Tilling’s complete-spectrum vocals magnificently surf along the wavy brilliance of synthesisers, guitars and intricate percussion created by Leo Morgan on guitars & synthesisers, Tim Horne on bass & synthesisers, and Toby Archer on drums.
‘Weave’ will make you want to break the rules a little and be foolish in a good way. Have fun:

Verdensrommet: Aldri igjen EP


_DSC7455_DxO
The Norwegian indie-pop band Verdensrommet is back with another EP, and this time they’re joined by Emir Hindic, aka. Onge $ushimane (from the rap duo $ushi x Kobe). The EP features the track Aldri igjen (Never Again in English) and several remixes of the same. This is a track that essentially has no coherent structure or form and has random manifestations of multiple genres (electronica, ambient, hip hop, etc) coexisting and at times fighting for supremacy. It hits you hard and the remixes are as pleasingly diverse as chalk and cheese. Definitely not meant for a sunny afternoon stroll, but walk down some of the graffiti lined streets of a metropolis with this in your earphones after sunset and you’ll be one with your urbaniverse.
The whole EP can be streamed from: https://open.spotify.com/album/03dB87F294CPsspYKE0Ooa or the soundcloud link which you can figure out using the stuff we have embedded below.

Below are a few of our favourites from this EP:

PLGRMS: Pieces


DSC_0359-1-2

Every once in a while there comes a song that reminds me of that wonderful quote from ‘A Clockwork Orange’ while the protagonist listened to Beethoven’s Ninth: ‘Oh bliss! Bliss and heaven! Oh, it was gorgeousness and gorgeousity made flesh. It was like a bird of rarest-spun heaven metal or like silvery wine flowing in a spaceship, gravity all nonsense now‘. I can’t phrase my praise for this layered beauty of a track from PLGRMS any better, so just listen to it and then listen to it again and again and again:

There is also a video for this track, which I unfortunately can’t access from Germany due to it being blocked by one of the most controversial authorities here ‘GEMA’. A link to the track, should you be located anywhere other than the fatherland:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zbTHbErVWV4

A bit of info about the band: PLGRMS is a duo comprised of the talented Australian born, London-based singer-songwriter Toma Banjanin and accomplished Sydney songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Jonathan Bowden.The track (shared above) is co-written and produced by Jimmy Lyell – one half of internationally-renowned electronic duo Flight Facilities – and also features The Preatures’ Luke Davison on drums.

The Unravelling: Master Drone


DSC_0326-2

Master Drone is an absolute scorcher of a track by Calgary based heavy-metal/industrial rock band ‘The Unravelling’. Symbolic of the internal animal inside all of us that has been in existence since time immemorial but contextualised for this digital age, the master drone signifies a common voice in all our heads programmed by forces beyond our control, consuming us all in our own unique ways. Unleashing this monster with a ferociously dark and very welcome passion is lead vocalist ‘Steve Moore’, who is back with renewed focus after recovering from cancer. He is ably supported by Gustavo De Beauville, who is the instrumentalist and co-founder of this promising metal act. We thank our friends at Independent Music Promotions for sharing this with us. Find out more about this promising duo by following them on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/theunravelling

Now get ready to launch into some psycho-analytic head banging:
