Only one of a slew of old tracks that i’ve been introduced to on my travels through England right now. Gesaffelstein took David Carretta’s glitchy/tech-disco track and turned it into one ear splitting, menacing dance floor destroyer. The UK knows how to make the floor shake.
Out today on Kranky, Virgins is Tim Hecker’s seventh studio album, but the first recorded completely from live instrumentation. This element gives this ornate record added humanity and depth, a more dynamic canvas to which Hecker can distort, loop and decay.
Michael Red brings detail to the forefront on MM002, the second release by Calgary label Modern Math. A balance of heavy, evolving percussion and deep synth undertones make this collection of tracks such an engaging listen. The cold IDM workings of track ‘No Smoke No Fire’ in particular stand out. This EP is out today. Keep an eye on this label.
1080p is a newly minted casette tape label out of Vancouver. Very cool lo-fi vibes. They’ve already released material from Heartbeat(s), one half of LOL Boys. This track is from the 2nd release that drops today. Great cause to dust off the old Sony Walkman ^__^
