Stuck Pig // Einsam

Driving bassline, tight beat and moody atmospheric keys. From Bristol to Vienna, the disconnected themes of Einsam are pretty stark and to be honest, pretty un-pause-able (just made up a word there). I really can imagine anything other than smoky European bars and basement gigs, this track is one hundred percent built for it. Times... Continue Reading →

I Feel No Pain // Rénovations

Hello again, I hope you all are doing well during this prolonged stint of being trapped indoors. It's not all doom and gloom though. For your consideration, here are Rénovations all the way from sunny Edinburgh. Although in reality all three are from France, Italy and Romania which seem a lot more exotic - anyway,...

Daydreamer // Boshe

Massive Stranger Things 80s dream pop vibes here, like everything about this track feels like it's been made for the Breakfast Club. It's incredible. So aside from the blanket of keys with the massive synth build up, the offset of chimes really works. Everything seems so considered that it is almost like the whole song... Continue Reading →

The Last Arcade // Jack West

Unsuspectedly electro, incredibly different and actually one of the best things I have heard in this vein for a while. So think of Peter, Bjorn and John meets Kraftwerk. The song breaks into a guitar led quirky, bouncy, muted tune where the vocals really take centre stage, the raspy meanderings through the verse are amazing... Continue Reading →

Mouth Body // Jet Pack Dog

Now, I know this will be devisive, Jet Pack Dog are really, really different. It's like going back to my days at college when New Young Pony Club, Klaxons first album and Test Icicles were newly on the scene and it was a scary time for anyone that didn't know what this day-glo mass was....

All Talk // Kickn’ Tunes

Prepare yourself for a massive injection of Jamiroquai-esque funk. In the current climate of fear and general uncertainty, Kickn' Tunes have put together an EP that is essentially aimed to make you move and forget about everything that's happening. To be honest, it does work. The whole EP is made of samples (love a sample)... Continue Reading →

Inver // FRMR

FRMR is creating what seems like new-school folk music taking inspiration from traditional folk and newer electro sampling tracks. Inver is multilayered and is incredibly well textured. Everything seems to be a quite obscure choice but really does work. The pulsing bassline, the haunting children singing, the strings and almost random drum fills. Like nothing... Continue Reading →

Fun // Telquist

Telquist hails from Germany and creates Lo-Fi electro, that could almost be Chillwave, that accomplishes so much but seems so effortless. Slurred, nonchalant singing over massively laid back keys make you drift into a bubble of happiness. This song is like a little voice in your head. I don't quite know why but it seems... Continue Reading →
