Ascot trio Febueder has just released its debut EP Soap Carv, a collection of four highly maverick indie pop jams. Sometimes you might hear similarities to UK acts such as Alt-J or Blank Maps, but the three lads also seem to have listened to a lot of older Animal Collective or The Ruby Suns songs during the recording sessions. Febueder’s diverse inspirations in their songs are distinguishable but still they manage to create a strikingly unique sound despite their young age.
You can purchase the entire EP via Tape Club Records.

Earlier this year Captured Tracks’ Widowspeak played Luzern’s favourite summer bar Volière, hosted by Radio 3FACH. Local filmmakers Justin Stoneham and Roman Hodel captured the concert and this is the beautiful result: Watch Widowspeak perform “Perennials” and “Locusts” from their album Ballad Of The Golden Hour, which was released this year.

Some hours ago I was recommended “Sweat”, debut single by dutch artist Pink Oculus by a friend of mine. The song blew my mind at first listen, convincing with a wobbly beat and Esperanzah Denswil‘s soulful vocals and great rapping skills. I was pretty sure that it must have created quite a buzz already, but I was wrong. It seems like the blogosphere hasn’t gotten scent of this mind-blowing tune. Well, time to start the buzz.

Cuushe is an ambient dream-pop project from Tokyo, but now based in Berlin. She has recently released her acclaimed sophomore album Butterfly Case on Japanese label Flau. One of the best songs off the album, the balearic guitar-house tune “I Love You”, now has a great video to go with. The video was directed by Twigs & Yarn.

At the tender age of 15, Sydney’s Lupa a.k.a. Imogen Jones already writes songs that make seasoned musicians go green with envy. Having benefited from a strong classical music education playing violin, Imogen found her way into producing her own folktronica gems out of her bedroom. It’s hard to believe that a girl that age has produced songs like the ones posted below all on her own. Especially “The Creature” mesmerizes with elaborate drum beats, looped violin picking and Imogen’s delicate voice.
Find out more about her over on her Triple J Unearthed profile.

Great news – the long awaited new album by Beck finally gets a release date and a name. Check out the following press release:
Beck has signed to Capitol Records, who will release his first album of all new material since 2008′s universally acclaimed Modern Guilt in February 2014. The new record, titled Morning Phase, has been described as a companion piece of sorts to Beck’s 2002 classic Sea Change. Featuring many of the same musicians who played on that record (who are also currently accompanying him live) -Justin Meldal-Johnsen, Joey Waronker, Smokey Hormel, Roger Joseph Manning Jr., and Jason Falkner — Morning Phase harkens back to the stunning harmonies, song craft and staggering emotional impact of that record, while surging forward with infectious optimism. Morning Phase caps off a yearlong creative tear that traces back to the December of 2012 release of the lavishly packaged and illustrated Song Reader featuring sheet music for 20 new original Beck songs. The project quickly took on a life of its own, with musicians from across the globe recording their own interpretations, as well as Beck’s own special shows featuring eclectic lists of co-conspirators putting their own stamp on the compositions. Following that, Beck re-imagined David Bowie’s classic “Sound + Vision” with a hand-selected 160-piece orchestra… culminating with a groundbreaking interactive 360-degree filming of a live performance of the track. More recently, this summer brought us three rabidly received singles released digitally and on 12-inch vinyl (“Defriended,” “I Won’t Be Long,” Gimme”), and September saw Beck custom-creating two performance pieces for Doug Aitken’s Station to Station series of transient happenings, all interspersed with his current run of live shows–touted by reviewers the world over as among the very best of his career. Complete track listing, exact release date, and further information re: Morning Phase will be released as it is confirmed.
Until there’s any updates, make sure to get Beck’s new 12-inch single releases he’s dropped in the last months.
