Tracklisting

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.

Tracklisting

1. Binary – Prisoner

London four-piece Binary have only been around for a year or so, but are already crafting some excellent tracks. With a steady shoegaze rhythm and dark swooning vocals, comparisons could be drawn to The Cure. Mixed by Nine Inch Nails collaborator Sean Beavan, Prisoner is out on the fantastic London indie label Luv Luv Luv.

Binary Website | Binary Facebook | Luv Luv Luv Records | Prisoner on iTunes | Prisoner on Spotify

2. Serenades – Oceans

Adam Olenius and Markus Krunegård, aka Serenades, have already created a stir in their Swedish homeland and are gaining crediable exposure in the UK with their brand of chilled electronic pop. Similar to all releases by Serenades, ‘Oceans’ is a blissful track full of rich vocal lines and crisp production.

Serenades Website | Serenades Facebook | Come Home EP on iTunes | Come Home EP on Spotify

3. Oliver Tank – Embrace feat. Fawn Myers

2011 has seen Sydney based Oliver Tank making a name for himself on Triple J Unearthed, with tracks from his ‘Dreams EP’ constantly lingering, for good reason, in the electronic chart. The whole EP encapsulates Oliver’s haunting minimal synth sound. Perfect night-time listening.

4. NZCA/LINES – Okinawa Channels

Here’s a fantastic track from Michael Lovett moniker NZCA/LINES. ‘Okinawa Channels’, featuring tight beats, analogue syths and layered vocals, is taken from the debut album ‘Nasca Lines’ which will be released 27th February.

NZCA/LINES Website | NZCA/LINES  Facebook

5. Jamie N Commons – The Preacher

Unbelievably, although sounding like he’s spent his life smoking and drinking whisky with Mark Lanegan and Tom Waits, Jamie N Commons is only 22 years old. The opening track from ‘The Baron EP’ is gutsy, dynamic, and gaining approval from music journalists and bloggers alike.

Jamie N Commons Website | Jamie N Commons Facebook | Jamie N Commons on iTunes | Jamie N Commons Spotify

6. Foxes – Youth

London duet Foxes create quality electronic pop. Louisa Rose Allen’s vocals go harmoniously hand-in hand with Sam Dixon’s polished productions. ‘Youth’ is taken from Foxes’ debut release, the double A-side ‘Youth/Home’ which is out on Neon Gold 16th January.

Foxes Website | Foxes Facebook | Neon Gold Website

7. Filthy Boy – Naughty Corner

‘Naughty Corner’ is a quirky, catchy little number from South London alternative band Filthy Boy. Comparable to new Arctic Monkeys material and Our Mountain, ‘Naughty Corner’ is available as a free download from their Bandcamp page.

Filthy Boy Facebook | Filthy Boy Bandcamp

8. Y Niwl – Undegsaith

Y Niwl’s latest installment of fast paced surf rock comes in the form of ‘Undegsaith’. This 1 minute 8 second track available from the band’s Bandcamp page.

Y Niwl Website | Y Niwl Bandcamp | Y Niwl Facebook

9. Friends – Friend Crush

New York indie stars Friends have been gaining fantastic momemtum on both sides of the Atlantic over the past few months. Their first release, ‘I’m His Girl’, got terrific support from the likes of BBC Radio, which has led to the band being hotly tipped for 2012 by dozens of music blogs and publications. ‘Friend Crush’ is an equally brilliant chic-indie track.

Friends Website | Friends Facebook | Friend Crush on iTunes | Friend Crush on Spotify

10. Gabriel Bruce – Sleep Paralysis

Closing the podcast is ‘Sleep Paralysis’ by Gabriel Bruce, the brilliantly brooding second release from the Off Modern label. Definately worth a listen if you enjoy music from the likes of The National.

Tracklisting

1. Flume – Possum

Flume, aka Harley Streten, is a 19 year old producer from Sydney, Australia. Creating electronic music of a quality far beyond his age, Flume has been creating a stir on Australian finger to the pulse radio station Triple J. ‘Possum’ can be downloaded for free from the Triple J Unearthed website and his three track Sleepless EP is released on Future Classic.

2. Lana Del Rey – Video Games (Jamie Woon Remix)

We first heard Video Games back in May and instantly took to this amazing track. Since then, Lana Del Rey has rightfully been thrust into the limelight, branded an ‘internet sensation’, and had remixes from the likes of Balam Acab, Joy Orbinson and Mover Shaker. Personally, I was a bit sceptical of remixes of such a stripped, powerful tune, but this Jamie Woon remix is a brilliant take.

3. Lise – Cuando El Tiempo Es La Poesía (Parece Constantina) – When Time is Poetry (Like Constantina)

The first of two tracks included in the podcast from ‘Qualquer Frágil Fio de Fantasia’, the amazing new album from Lise. This track has been featured by the Guardian Music, representing Brazil in the Music Alliance Pact earlier this year.

Lise Website | Lise on Facebook | Lise on Soundcloud | Lise on Vimeo | Lise on YouTube

4. Exitmusic – The Sea

Exitmusic are married-duo Aleksa Palladino and Devon Church from New York City. ‘The Sea’, a particularly dynamic track with haunting melodies and a goth-like feel, is taken from their new EP – ‘From Silence’, which explores ‘themes of loss, both personal and universal, the destruction of nature and the destruction of our own nature’.

Exitmusic Bandcamp | Exitmusic on iTunes | Exitmusic on Spotify | Secretly Canadian

5. Bos Angeles – Beach Slalom

Hailing from Boscombe, Bournemouth, Bos Angeles describe themselves as ‘bedroom pop grunge lo-fi post-punk surf’. There is a definite sense of surf packed into this 2:35 track and it will be interesting to see what they release in the future. Beach Slalom is available as a free download from their Bandcamp page.

Bos Angeles Bandcamp

6. The Touch – Blocks

I saw the Touch play the best part of 6 months ago but keep getting drawn back to the melancholic, Joy Division-esque feel of this particular track. Although receiving remixes from big names such as Neon Electric and Voltaire Twins, the Australian band have not made much impact on UK shores. Their EPs 1.1 and 1.1 Remixes are available on iTunes.

The Touch on Myspace | The Touch on Facebook | The Touch on iTunes

7. ASAP Rocky – Wassup

The new rap talent that has already made a name for himself in the US is fast approaching the UK. Rocky received a shinning review from The Guardian’s New Band of the Day journalist Paul Lester, and reviews of his new material are equally as promising. This particular track was made with Clams Casino and will no doubt be available to download in the near future.

8. Lise – Com a Melhor Das Intenções – With the Best Intentions

Wrapping up the Autumn podcast is another beautiful track from the new Lise album ‘Qualquer Frágil Fio de Fantasia’, which will be released on DryCry Records 29th November.

PODCAST #2 Summer 2011

This podcast is now offline. If you would like us to send you an MP3 of this podcast please email podcast@drycryrecords.com with the name of the podcast you wish to receive.

Tracklisting

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.

Website |MySpace | BandCamp | Twitter | Facebook

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.

Website | Soundcloud | MySpace | Facebook

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.
