Jam packed with some of the freshest talent and hottest new music, the new podcast is online and available to download below.
1. Seekae – Void
Seekae are an Australian trio consisting of Alex Cameron, George Nicholas and John Hassel. Established in 2006, they have (successfully) honed their sound, fusing elements of IDM, hip-hop, indie pop and ambient post-rock. I caught these guys play The Aussie BBQ in London a few months back and I’m happy to say their music transpires perfectly into a live environment.
Their latest release, +Dome, is being planned for a UK release later this year. Their debut LP, The Sound of Trees Falling on People, is available on iTunes.
2. Hot Horizons – All of This
This Leicestershire quintet (two brothers and three more musicians) have been creating a stir across the blogging community and journalists alike. Off the four track EP of the same name, All of This is a blissful blend of reverby guitars, harmonies and dreamy hooks.
All of This is available on iTunes. Look out for the LP “Memories I Never Had” later this year.
3. Tobias – Bahasa
DryCry Records’ own Tobias has received gracious praise from blogs across the globe for Circumstances. Tobias is Cédric Mateus, the incredibly gifted Parisian producer who creates an array of fantastic sounds and styles from his bedroom, without losing sense of melody.
Circumstances is available on iTunes.
4. James Vincent McMorrow – We Don’t Eat (Adventure Club Remix)
James Vincent McMorrow is an Irish folk singer whose debut album, Early In the Morning, has rightly risen to critical acclaim. Adventure Club have a track record of churning out jaw-droppingly good remixes and thankfully they nailed We Don’t Eat, creating a track that can stand on its own.
5. Jack Steadman – Toy Car
As well as fronting the fantastic Bombay Bicycle Club, Jack Steadman is in the early stages of proving his production credentials. Steadman co-produced the eagerly awaited new BBC album alongside Animal Collective collaborator Ben Allen. Toy Car is one of several tracks created by the man himself which can be found on his Soundcloud and MySpace. A new Jamie xx in the making?
6. Gold Panda – Marriage (Star Slinger Remix)
One of my favourite remixes to come out this year, Star Slinger’s original take of Marriage from last year’s Lucky Shiner LP. Star Slinger has made a name for himself remixing some of music’s top stars, but is also a creator in his own right. If vintage synths, spliced beats, pitch shifted vocals and other production trickery is up your street, check him out.
