According to Bandcamp Dusk Warrior‘s album Overdrive Sunrise was released on 20 November 1989. Haha, I don’t really believe that. Because he, Nicholas Shapiro from NY’s Weird Korea, is only 20 years old. His instrumental tracks, however, have some sort of ancient touch. Mixed genres, different vocal samples and a lot of guitars here. Free Download!
Californian Will Wiesenfeld is not only a singer, but also songwriter and producer. Normally he creates electronic pop as Baths, but under the moniker Geotic he now took the guitar to record his new album Mend. Check out the opener “Unwind” below – it’s a great little instrumental which is perfect to listen to while falling asleep. (This is meant in a positive way!)
Head over here download the entire LP for free. (Yes, he gives it away for free!)
“Logo is a what-s-the-point duo. They can’t sing and have nothing to prove. Engaging and impassive, they settle for the sight of modern life: from its fake veneer to its faded wallpaper. They don’t laugh or make fun of this observation. This is why Logo decided to start passive resistance.”
These words in my inbox are the reason why I decided to check out LOGO. And I’m really glad I did because their sound is something special. You may have previously come across them on the ninth and last Kitsuné Maison Compilation, an inclusion which is usually enough to boost any new artist’s profile.
Now Hugues Tonnay De Parrel and Thomas Desnoyers will release their debut EP La Vie Moderne which features the two great instrumental tracks posted below and also some remixes.
La Vie Moderne will be released on October 4th via Kitsune.
Tanlines’ EP Settings has been a loyal company through my summer days in England. With their african drumbeats and 80′s synthesizers, Jesse Cohen und Eric Emm create tropical summer sound at its finest.
Even nicer to see that the guys put up a new song on their SoundCloud. “Iced Coffee” is a instrumental track heavy on the bass, created by sampling iced coffee sloshing about. And in the end there is even a big slurp to hear. Huge! I feel the strange need for a Starbucks Frappuccino right now…
Stones Throw’s beat master James Pants is responsible for some of the most smoldering electro instrumentals on Peanut Butter Wolf’s label. To say that they’re completely electro without a tinge of hip-hop would do them a disservice because they also fall between classic eras of hip-hop in the summer time like Afrika Bambaataa’s synths echoing off the buildings in the Bronx to the smart blending of Prince Paul’s great track record of De La Soul’s break beats from the ’80s. James Pants’ new EP is the latest follow-up to his 2008 album Welcome. Get a sample of the album’s lead off track “Driftwood” below! Killer track!
Following up their cleverly named LP3, LP4 was apparently recording during the same session, but will feature more worldly sounds than its predecessor. It also is supposedly going to rock hard. After listening to the new track “Party With Children “, I really like it, but other songs off the new album don’t sound that interesting, more like a bunch of B-Sides. Perhaps I gotta give the album some more listens.
