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.

DryCry Records Summer 2011 Podcast

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.
