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?
Alright, so I’ve been holding onto these/debating whether or not to release them. I recorded them originally back in March, but they needed work. So I deleted everything, but school kept me too busy to really work on it. After finals, I was finally able to take this project back to the studio and make the necessary changes. Essentially, The Love Club was inspired by the myriad of nu disco and funk tracks I had been coming across all spring. I began putting together a set, but I also had several other gems that I wasn’t sure how to incorporate. So inevitably I ended up splitting things up into two sets and then everything fell into place. Ladies and dudes, I give you… The Love Club.
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!
An incredibly relaxing track. Shai Vardi, aka Virgin Magnetic Material, the enigmatic producer who just keeps giving us high quality deep progressive remix is at it again! Today’s remix of Local Natives‘ ‘Heavy Feet’ brings an incredible atmospheric sound to the L.A. indie rock band. If you dig this, follow both of these artists!!
Futurecop! is a UK duo, Manzur Iqbal and Peter Carrol. Haven’t seen much from these guys since their album release late 2013. Well, they’re not wasting time… their next album, Fairytales of Summer Shoegazers, is already in the works and due out later this year. Here’s the first sound I’ve heard from the new LP, very ethereal and airy vocals. Be sure to like their facebook page as they’ve already announced a remix coming out today!
