New Track: Dick Diver - New Name Blues

Melbourne’s solid four-piece Dick Diver certainly raised the bar on their latest track “New Name Blues”. It may start of in a typically unassuming, jangly manner, but soon enough the track slides into a beautifully orchestrated instrumental part comprised by airy saxophones tangled up in spacey, layered guitar work. It keeps echoing out into a chaotic, hallucinatory noise, barely touching the…

Glasgow’s electronic music producer Rustie is set to follow up his solid Glass Swords with a new album titled Green Language on legendary Warp Records later this summer. “Raptor” below is the first teaser  and shows a much more frantic side of the producer’s aesthetics. The track yanks and bends until reaching one of the most solid drops I’ve heard since BBND’s “CS60”. Listen below.

Video: clipping. - Body and Blood

I’m getting more and more convinced that “Body and Blood” from the LA noise-rap trio clipping. is the most impressive hip hop track of the year so far.

”Little Joe” by the NY band Bueno is an absolute gorgeous distillation of free-jazz and ‘protopunk’ / new wave or whatever you want to label the sort of nervy, feet-shaking punk-rock highly influenced by bands like Liquid Liquid and Gang of Four. “Little Joe”, an adaptation from a 1959 song with the same name by the Doubles with The Gay Blades, is the kind of track that puts todays skittish…

Once husband and wife, Ivan Howard and Kelly Crisp has for over a decade created a steady stream of consistent albums under their The Rosebuds moniker. Since the couples divorce the releases may’ve become farer and wider apart, but the quality hasn’t suffered, as they demonstrated on 2011’s Loud Planes Fly Low, their only album of original material since parting ways romantically. It stands as a…

Unlike many great contemporary singer/songwriter, Sweden’s Alice Boman isn’t a storyteller. Her lyrics are direct and don’t leave much room for interpretations. “It is what it is. I think it’s difficult to describe and explain things. I like to let the music speak for itself”, she modestly told in an interview. Skisser, her quietly brilliant debut EP was filled with raw, sketchy drafts – evident…

I think the main appeal with Swim–  Caribou’s magnificent 2010 album  - was the way Dan Snaith created electronic music that didn’t really sound like electronic music, which undoubtedly had a lot to do with him spending the decade prior crafting albums that jumped from a wide set of styles and genres, often with a psych- prefix attached. In this respect, “Can’t Do Without You” – Snaith’s first…
