POLYGON PALACE - 'We Have A Visual' (Human Life Remix)




Electronic duo Polygon Palace formed when Londoner, Adam Ferns and New Zealander, Gabriel Crossan bonded over a common love for left-of-centre dance music while living abroad in Melbourne, Australia.

Since the 2009 release of the duo's Nintendo-disco single
Tokyo Getaway, Polygon Palace made waves on the blogs with their remix of 'In It Together' from Californians Human Life as they tear up the Melbourne underground dance scene.

'We Have A Visual'
is a tune about vampire-hunting robots and cross-dimensional hedonism, with synths (yes, you read that correctly).

Dreamed - So I ate myself, bite by bite



So I ate myself, Bite By Bite is the new album by Black Moth Super Rainbow member Ryan Graveface. It continues along the same path that other Black Moth Super Rainbow band members have taken with their solo albums. It’s a rich album with a lot of depth and an almost childlike wonder.

Mainly using an acoustic guitar, a banjo, and a xylophone, Ryan is able to create a friendly and fulfilling album from start to finish. This is sometimes an odd feeling to get since the album is supposedly a story that chronicles the events in the life of a serial killer. It’s definitely a interesting way to cover that kind kind of subject matter. For instance in the track ‘Pieces’, between the soothing sounds of a banjo and xylophone, Ryan sings ‘I can’t believe it was just yesterday/I cleaned my hands and washed the blood away’. Other tracks like ‘Pink Clouds In The Woods’ and ‘Magnesium Light’  have a seemingly more uplifting feel, the latter having lyrics like ‘I looked at the skies tonight and said I love the sun’. ‘An Admission’ is the highlight of the album, coming it at around 10 minutes long. The psychedelic sun-soaked choral “woo’s” are backed by a driving drum beat that builds and builds until it explodes. The rest of the track feels like the up and down ride through the “killers” mind as he wrestles with what he has done and what will become of him.

So I ate myself, Bite By Bite is an eclectic ride and surprisingly catchy, despite it’s subject matter. It’s a great album to have on in the background for any road trip. So I ate myself, Bite By Bite may not be for everyone but, if you let yourself go along for the ride, it’s a highly enjoyable bit of experimental folk that should satisfy most listeners.

Brasstronaut- Mt. Chimarea





Mt. Chimarea is a fitting name for Brasstronaut’s debut album. Just like the mythical creature made up of parts of different animals, the band’s sound floats between experimental jazz, electronica and pop sounds. Using a wide array of instruments such as the trumpet, lap steel guitar, flugelhorn and the seldom-heard EWI (a breath controlled synthesizer), Brasstronaut have made a haunting and rich album.

‘Hearts Trompet’ starts with a simple bass before building into a wall of strings that is simply beautiful. ‘Insects’ is a more jazzy number that lazily bounces around before letting the horns loose to fill the room. ‘Ravan’, one of the highlights of the album, perfectly fuses the horns, bass and drums with moody vocals to create a moving and enchanting piece of music. ‘Six Toes’, having a New Orleans-style jazz sound, is another track where the band shows their talent in crafting complex arrangements and skill with each instrument they use. ‘Slow Knots’, which is my personal favorite track on the album, starts of with the lyrics ‘Do you think that I betrayed you, Honey don’t you I’m too dumb for that / you kept a list of all those bad nights/we both know it got to long’. The track uses a subtle drum beat and bass to build the track until it kicks in and melds the vocals, keyboard and horns into a sublime echo filled lament on love lost.

The band has built credibility on the road, having played with bands from Belle Orchestre to Why?, and in international festivals like Reykjavik’s Iceland Airwaves ‘09, where they appeared on-stage with the brass section from Sigur Ros. They sure have my attention and I can’t wait to see where they go in the future. Brasstronaut, the Vancouver based six-piece, pride themselves on being unclassifiable. Fortunately for us, they have crafted a perfectly accessibly album that is fresh and exciting to hear. Surely a top album of 2010, this is a must buy for any real music fan and highly recommended.

Finest Ego - Russian Beatmaker Compilation

http://bandcamp.com/files/29/28/2928668263-1.jpg

I stumbled across this the other day. It is a sister release to the Japanese Beatmakers Download I posted a few months ago. More outstanding instrumental (sometimes jazzy, sometimes thumpin') hip hop beats that will provide the perfect soundtrack to whatever you are doing.

Here is a description, in their own words...

"The tendency towards advanced beats seems to be more and more a global phenomenon. As we already have said: Decentred beats for decentred people. During the last few years arose also in Russia a small, loosely networked scene of people, who have experimented with Hip Hop-beats. But in this case, the young Russians have no examples or references for this kind of music in the musical culture of their own country. All of their inspirations are taken from blogs and from the intensive study of their role models worldwide. The result is an organic, very playful, snappy and jazzy sound, which is carried by a common vibe, but is in the same way as diverse as the finest egos of the artists themselves.

The compilation includes Pavel Dovgal, DZA, Pixelord, Demokracy, Moa Pillar, Arktor, Shawalski, Myown, Nienvox, 813 and Long Arm."


 Here is the track list...

01 Is On Fire by Pavel Dovgal
02 Zero One by Pixelord
03 Searchlight by Demokracy
04 Way Of Wind by Moa Pillar
05 Henry Dorsett Case by Arktor
06 Fireball by DZA
07 Gettin Hi by Shawalski
08 Vladislav Kovac by Myown
09 Hairs by Nienvox
10 Gamma by 813
11 The Roots by Long Arm

 


This release may not be free...but it's GOOD! ( I am sure if you poke around on the interwebs enough you may find it for free...but why not support these beatmakers and buy it!)


Recommended!
