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?
Jeremy Malvin, aka Chrome Sparks, delivers his best work to date. I posted on his Sparks EP last year and thank the almighty universe that he has received due attention! He is on tour now with Jesse Brickel, aka Young Yeller, and Bill Delelles. Check out tour dates on his website. While I generally give you something quite chill on a Sunday, I could not resist sharing this epic excursion which starts out a bit subdued, but works itself into a crescendo of synth melody. Please, share this with a friend and enjoy.
The weather here in ATL is finally breaking into spring/summer and people are itching to get out. In the spirit of relaxation, breaking free and everything chill, I give you City Lights by Woolfy. I’m still gathering into on this artist… I’m thinking that Woolfy is Simon James out of L.A. and either he moved to L.A. from Australia or he’s working with an Aussie vocalist (maybe this “projections” dude? They have a whole album of tracks and more they’ve released together called The Return Of Love). Either way… City Lights is a chill tropical excursion, great for sipping on a frozen margarita and floating on the water.
LA’s RL Grime and Sydney, Australia’s What So Not walk into a bar… what comes out of the speakers is pure awesome. From opposite sides of the globe, but brought together by a love for all things hip hop, trap and bass. Nod ya head and tap your fingers!
Ok, so I honestly don’t know much about these guys, but I can tell you that Panama deliver beautiful melodies and dreamy soundscapes. They released their sophomore EP, Always back in January with a couple of remixes from Classixx and Wave Racer (a couple of my fave Aussie indie dance remixers/producers). Now they’ve followed up their latest tour with the release of this gorgeous new track. If you dig this, I highly suggest picking up their Always EP.
p.s. There’s a free download of their track “Destroyer” available just for liking their Facebook page
