Podcast #5 is online and available as a free download below:
1. Poliça – Lay Your Cards Out
Taken from their much hyped debut album, ‘Lay Your Cards Out’ perfectly encapsulates what Poliça are about. Although auto-tuned vocals, electronic soundscapes and two drummers sounds odd on paper, the result is fantastic, leading to Justin Vernon (Bon Iver) declaring “they’re the best band I’ve ever heard”.
2. Constantina – Juan, El Marinero
Here’s a beautiful track from DryCry’s latest release, ‘Haveno’ by Constantina. This is one of several tracks that has been regularly spotted on music blogs around the release and Constantina’s return to SXSW Festival. Music That Isn’t Bad declared “This Brazil-based group has found a way to mix the cinematic qualities of Explosions in the Sky with the electro-vamping of Jon Hopkins, and the result, a platter of delicious food for my ears”.
3. Tobias – I Lost My Memories In The Snow
It gives us great pleasure to preview a brand new track from DryCry artist Tobias. The follow up to ‘Circumstances‘ is expected to land in Autumn 2012. ‘I Lost My Memories In The Snow’ gives a great indication of what is to come, beautifully produced electronic music containing emotive melody and feeling.
4. St Lucia – Closer Then This
A great, feel good track from a brilliant EP. St. Lucia is Brooklyn based Jean-Philip Grobler, who creates summery electronic pop with similar aesthetics to Miike Snow. St. Lucia have recently graced the UK, impressing crowds at Camden Crawl and The Great Escape.
5. No Ceremony – Deliverus
Different to their usual style, but none the less awesome, Deliverus is a slow burning, reverb drenched track that shows a positive new dimension to their repertoire.
6. Sleepwalkers – Rear Window (Barny Carter Remix)
Here’s a fresh re-working of Rear Window by Bristolian electronic talent Barny Carter. Barny’s music, which can be heard on his Soundcloud page, has been described by BBC’s Tom Robinson as “fresh and gorgeous”. We couldn’t agree more.
7. Sylver Tongue – Hook You Up
Sylver Tongue is Charlotte Hatherley from pop-punk band Ash. ‘Hook You Up’ is the first of two tracks Charlotte has revealed under the pseudonym. Very different to previous efforts, the new sound shows a lot of promise, leaving fans and journalists alike eagerly anticipating more.
8. Coloquix – Greg and Anna Go to Dublin
Coloquix, aka Greg Connolly, is a Sheffield based electronic producer. ‘Greg and Anna go to Dublin’ caught our attention straight away, combining soft soundscapes with simple yet beautiful melody. Coloquix has a handful of tracks available to stream and download on his Soundcloud.
9. Teddington Close – Girl in the Rain
Wrapping up the podcast is a track from Bristol based songwriter/musician Teddington Close. All the tracks we’ve heard of the record sounds fantastic so far… very organic and dynamic, with heaps of harmony and a very clever use of instrumentation.
