'On Various Materials side B' by Lambda Kiwi

‘On Various Materials side B’ by Lambda Kiwi

Lambda Kiwi is a drop in the ocean of the internet, but concious of that and not caring much about it -meanwhile few monkeys run the rules-, he makes what he likes, and so ‘what he likes’ means everything he likes. Behind Lambda Kiwi there’s Ziad Nagy a multidisciplinary artist...
Train Conductor's Mixtape

Train Conductor’s Mixtape

One of my favourite ways to find new music nowadays is soundclouding and that’s how I crushed with the music of the Train Conductor: “My Name is Will Byrne and I have been experimenting with different sounds since i was a kid. I never really wanted to cover songs. I...

R A M Z I ' s Mixtape

R A M Z I ‘ s Mixtape

I was soundclouding when I discovered R A M Z I -not to be confused with the british-lebanese singer Ramzi, who’s clearly in an complete different music track-; it was some day of May when I crushed with the tropicalism of ‘Parade Nuptiale en Milieu Humide‘ -God! this song grabs you to another place, floating...

Primavera Sound 2013

Primavera Sound 2013

2013, recession all over but Primavera Sound still have last year’s strength. With a bunch of headliners for the most squeezable people, Primavera’s most interesting line-up it’s written in lowercase. I firmly recommend you Sean Nicholas Savage and do not miss Mulatu Askate -ain’t in my tracklist but it’s a classic, you’ll regret missing it-....
Romantic Graffitti by Gal Gracen

Romantic Graffitti by Gal Gracen

Under the name of “Gal Gracen” there’s Patrick Geraghty, a vancouverite with so many concerns that has been writing really wordy garage songs for a while under the name “Role Mach“. But he wanted to make his music more casual & quick paced, less arty and more fun more quick paced so he started Gal...
The Soft Moon Mixtape

The Soft Moon Mixtape

Picture by Julie Bonato What do we have to say about The Soft Moon that hasn’t been written already? Here we have a shadowful beating mixtape by his leader, Luis Vasquez, with few of their influences. As dark, as hypnotic, as atmospheric, as tense, as visceral, as solid as their sound. Some Velvet Guests 27...

Sun King Mixtape

Sun King Mixtape

With the same ‘aka’ as Louis XIV, Sun King is the solo dark country project of a young upstate new yorker. Sun King’s music is slow and thoughtful. It’s not music about faith or holy books, though it may sound like that at times. The music is simple and dark and attempts to explore the...
Renaldo & Clara Mixtape

Renaldo & Clara Mixtape

                        Named after Bob Dylan’s film, Renaldo & Clara‘s music is as slow and delicate as the time it takes to listen to it. Their tickling and whispering voice is Clara Viñals, the beauty frontgirl and also composer of the catalan band that completes...

Autumn’s Falling by Little Wings
