here we go magic
Going to try something a little different with this column, mainly using a few more images to break up the post. The goal of this post remains the same though. Its me pointing you towards a few things you should hear and see. Hope you dig.
Here’s the first official video from Fredrik‘s third album Flora. Inspired by early motion picture magicians like Stan Brakhage, Harry Smith, Isidore Isou and Viking Eggeling, it features an abstract take on Palm Shadowplay using “a vintage British overhead projector, an off-white canvas, scissors, paper, 8 hands and a fishtank full of flammable liquids”. Found at iamnosuperman.
We’re getting first listens today from Queensland, Australian band The Middle East of their new track “Hunger Song” (over at Dailybeatz). Quite a bit more upbeat from last year’s sombre grower in “Blood”, “Hunger Song” arrives before the self produced full length LP entitled I Want That You Are Always Happy on July 12.
Big fan of this remix, check out Two Door Cinema Club’s remix of the Young The Giant song “My Body” over at Tympanogram.
Horsecollar needs your help. A while back I briefly mentioned that I was liking the track “Christopher”. Now, he’s using Kickstarter to try and raise funds to manufacture a “7 inch, for those songs on bandcamp. Check it out.
The Depreciation Guild. Recently on the radar as related to recent Sync/Master subjects The Pains of Being Pure At Heart (their drummer is one half of Brooklyn duo The Depreciation Guild. Head to their homepage and click on the yellow bar (‘Album’) to get their album for free. Pay specific attention to Darklooming. Quite nice. For fans of M83 and Nintendo.
Here We Go Magic. Tunnelvision never really grabbed me. I tried a couple times. Watched the video. The song kept on repeating over and over, and I guess I wanted it to vary. Maybe I should have heard Fangela first, because it sounds more up my alley. Squint your ears on some parts and hear Animal Collective doing Floyd. Not quite ready to call them the next big thing just yet.
Patrick Watson. Found this new track on Brooklyn Vegan, the 2nd track off the upcoming album ‘Wooden Arms‘ (May 5th, Secret City). Check out Tracey’s Waters. For fans of M Ward, Jeff Buckley, Chris Martin.
