Seekae (originally Commander Keen, but they realized that name was already taken) is a Sydney trio comprised of Alex Cameron, John Hassel, and George Nicholas. These guys have been hailed as sonic entrepreneurs in Australia since their debut album in 2008. I first discovered their incredibly beautiful and hypnotic sounds after +Dome came out, but I only recently began to learn more about the group. They actually won a grant after their first album and since then have really been putting a lot of work into creating more complex soundscapes. In addition, this video for their latest track Another, is very gripping, and dark. Most say that the tradition of sacrifice in tribute to the land is real, but they generally use the fetus of a llama or alpaca. ¿Crees que pasa en el vídeo es un mito o no?
The skyrocketing London Grammar trio is releasing a 3 song EP for another single from their debut album If You Wait. The single features the original version if Sights as well as a 2 Step remix from Tourist and a out of this world progressive drum n bass remix from Andy C. iTunes users can Pre-Order the EP here, it will be released officially on June 1st.
Just came across Ryan Hemsworth’s little “secret songs” account/label. Well, thanks for reposting your second song on it so that I could discover it Ryan!
Direct from their soundcloud page:
note from schwarz and 333 boyz: “SCHWARZ X 333 BOYZ IS: LIAM MORRISON, SAM LUBICZ AND ADAM SCHWARZ. LIAM IS AN ARIES, SAM IS A PISCES AND ADAM IS A CANCER. OUR FAVORITE RAPPER IS E-40 AND OUR FAVORITE ROCK BAND IS BLINK 182.”
note from ryan: “i’ve been following Schwarz for a while because he kind of embodies everything i find interesting about an artist in 2014. he’s ultra feminine with a super heavy sound; he has a sense of humour but his dark side can always be seen; and his versatility could be easily confused with indecision. i think that’s exactly what i love though, he’s from the internet age of consuming every form of music online, and now him and 333 Boyz can just open their laptops and make an experimental wild wild west track that pulls in elements of bounce, trap, and jersey… and i really can’t turn it off.”
Alright! Happy Birthday to ME punk ass bitches! That’s right… I’ve made it through more years than I originally planned on being here, so that’s pretty good right?
Anyway, for my birthday… I’m going deep, progressive, soulful, and…. fucking LONDON! That’s right, London Grammar has certainly blown the fuck up this year with appearances on Jimmy Fallon and their debut album rose to the fifth top selling UK album for 2014. And they obviously have done several photo shoots now as there is no shortage of images of the trio. So this weekend, paint the town black with this incredibly gorgeous and club ready remix of Hey Now from Russian producer Arty.
Looking through Architecture In Helsinki‘s press photos, it sure does look like they have a lot of fun together. I’d love to be part of a band like that. Guess that’s one of the drawbacks of being a solo artist, eh? Plus they seem pretty free form with their band overall, sometimes performing with 8 members on stage, other times just 4 or 5. If you’re looking for another taste of AIH’s sound, I highly suggest this number off their Moment Bends LP: Contact High
Andras Fox, another Australian producer, takes their track “I Might Survive” off to another level of airy delight!
p.s. It’s officially final week for me, so if I’m slackin this week… too bad!
