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:

Casual Lab: Anis Hachemi – Days like this (Album)


IMG_7300

Anis Hachemi, aka Sin Tek, is back at Berlin based label Casual Lab. He has been busy working on his latest deep house/borderline techno offering which is all the fuel you’re ever gonna need for those groovy all-nighters on the dancefloor at a hip, nondescript club in the capital. Without further ado, here’s a sample of the tracks from the album ‘Days like this’

Park Planet: Dropping It


Park Planet, a 3 person band from Glasgow, are out with their slickly executed funktronic labor of love titled ‘Dropping It’. The track, which has a sort of ‘letting go’ mood to it, features impressive percussion work, well-executed beat-ups and wonderful switches in rhythm line, thus living up to its name in mood, melody and technicality. The video is impressively cut as well, featuring imagery, ranging from obvious to psychedelic, that beautifully complements the vibe of the song at that moment. Two thumbs up!

Sleepless Inn: The Rainbow Room and others


DSC_0134cpy2

The smooth enchantment of Laura Finlay’s vocals set against a backdrop of casually intense electro-pop beats by Eddie Logix, add some very promising songwriting skills to the mix and you have the captivating debut album ‘The Rainbow Room’, by Detroit based Sleepless Inn. Some samples from the debut album:

They have recently also released an evocatively trippy single called ‘Escalators’. Very energetic rhythm around this one coupled with an overall feeling of ‘insubstantiality’, if that is a word! Sort of like a soundtrack to what Kundera must’ve been thinking when he coined the title ‘The unbearable lightness of being’! Not the best thought when travelling on an escalator though :):

Starar: Summit (New EP)


photo (10)

London based sibling duo Starar have recently released two scorchers for tracks for their EP titled Summit. Whether it is the classy but subtle interplay between the saxophone and the ‘ever-so-smooth’ vocals on the title track or the incorporation of drip/flow sounds of non-stagnant water into a Dire-Straits meet Richard Marx sort of mood experienced on ‘For the Water’, there is much to cherish here:

Alex Autajon – Don’t be Shy


photo (6)

17 year old Frenchman, Alex Autajon, makes music well beyond his years. Each beat is so meticulously placed, each fade, each build up so perfect, this electronic-bassy downtempo blends melancholic synths, jarring piano and soothing basslines to submerge you into a lull only to bring in that sudden drop from time to time which is like waking up from a suspended state under the dreamy waters of your bathtub to the sounds of it suddenly gushing down the drain because life or automated drainage got in the way. Some fresh, clean fun then:

Starar; Renegade Heart


photo (3)

The awesome sibling duo Starar are out with a new track whose ecclectic musical combinations of vibraphone with a steinway piano and saxophone are a bit renegade but definitely have a lot of heart. This laidback dreamy hummable beauty is aptly titled ‘Renegade Heart’. Tune in for some excellent guitarwork and awesome vocals:
