Epstein - Jellyfish

Sweet little track of avant hip-hop psychedlic good vibrations collage noise reminds me a bit of the old Slabco stuff that was coming out in the mid to late nineties but this is a Brooklyn artist with a new underwater-themed full-length coming out on Asthmatic Kitty and this song sounds suitably underwater so it sounds like his concept album kicks off with a solid start.

Baths - Cerulean

Knowing where to begin is the utmost challenge to creating to comment on something as stunning as the Baths’ debut release Cerulean. Among a few of my dream labels, Anticon is in the top 3, so when I read of a new artist on Anticon, I can usually trust that it will be both quality, odd-but-catchy and extremely intelligently arranged music and/or lyrics. Anticon never seems to disappoint a listener like me and usually it is not to my surprise that I will become a fan of any of their ar...

Electric Bird Noise - The Silber Sessions

Despite dozens of appearances with Silber’s acts on compilation albums and live shows, this is officially the very first album released on Silber by Brian McKenzie’s experimental post rock outfit, filtering ten years worth of output into thirteen choice cuts of instrumental madness. With two minuscule tracks as openers it is ‘Proti Village- Meteora-Odeon of Herodes Atticus’ that really begins the album proper, mixing barking dogs, bells and guitar instrumentation to create a unique m...

Datalog - Haarp

A pleasant album by producer Datalog based out of Brooklyn, New York. Haarp is an album of bubbling, cheerful electronic music. Previously a keyboardist with rock band The Upwelling, Conor Heffernan is now focusing his efforts on the Datalog project. Four on the floor kick drums are a theme through the album that kick off with opening track Gampi, but methinks the album is more home listening than dance floor fodder. It would also be at home in a wine bar, cocktail lounge or dinner pa...

Coma - My Orbit (Dauwd Remix)

Pretty electronic pop song from Cologne duo Coma on Kompakt Records.

The-Drum - Switch

Bizarre bit of electronic music from Chicago's The-Drum, with hints of R'n"B, the eighties, video games, and a hodge podge of other influences and sounds. Truly strange, and very cool.

Ellie Herring - Thinking JFK

Langourous bit of electronic pop brilliance from Lexington, Kentucky's Ellie Herring. Perfect song for a hot summer night.

Seams - Rilo

Nice little bit of electronic music from Berlin-based Englishman Seams aka James Welch. From Full Time Hobby album Quarters.

Shigeto - Ringleader

Detroit's Shigeto has a new album titled No Better Time Than Now out on Ghostly International. It's been seeing a lot of spins in my iTunes lately. Ringleader is a track off the album. He's set to tour North America soon with other Ghostly artists....

Tezeo - Violet

"Epic" electronic pop. Not so sure about this, but I do like the pan flute type sound which may the Andean folk influence the band speaks about.

Nils Frahm - Says

Track off of the new Nils Frahm live album Spaces on Erased Tapes. Sounds a lot like a performance I heard him do at Mutek Montreal 2013 in the symphony hall. Beautiful!
