So a new feature on the blog starting from today. We thought we would provide a one stop, weekly shop for our daily music recommendations that means you don't have to log on daily to social media and hope their algorithms actually give you the information you want.
As usual we'll just put our Twitter friendly, succinct, alliteratively leaning descriptions by the side of the player to try and tempt you but let's face it music is a subjective thing. I guess we're more or less on the same musical wavelength or your wouldn't be here in the first place but you know how it goes the true test is what happens when that music hits your ears and connects with your brain.
ELEPHANT MICAH - GENERICANA (WESTERN VINYL)
Data driven, taking no risks, indie folky Americana by numbers enhanced by the latest popular VST plugins from Elephant Micah for Western Vinyl, carefully crafted not to offend anyone, sound good in the largest shopping malls and be algorithmically next in line on the popular streaming services. Or maybe not?
ANNE ANNIE - MASSIF, SONATA NO. 1 (SELF RELEASED)
It's 40 degrees in Lisbon today so I'm keeping cool & calm by listening to Ann Annie's latest modular synthesized, zen facilitating, temperature lowering, horizontally optimised ambient pathway to waking dreams of Japanese gardens.
Matchess - sacracorpa (trouble in mind)
A beautiful, dreamy, happily melancholic, ambiguous ambient string & synth led, drum machine anchored, meander through otherworldly realms from Matchess for Trouble In Mind Records.
daniel aged - daniel aged (quality time recordings)
Familiar sounding yet refreshingly different, bass nudged, live instrumentation adourned adventures in the floatiest sort of ambient techno & future age dreams from Daniel Aged for Quality Time Recordings
hear & now - aurora baleare (claremont56)
Ease your way into the week with this deckchair inviting, sea beckoning, sun optimised, leisure enhancing LP of balmy beats, pastoral house and Balearic dreaminess from Here & Now for Claremont 56
prana crafter - enter the stream (sunrise ocean bender)
Make your Sunday a lazy hazy one with the reality questioning, kosmishche toad licked, acid addled folk and all round psychedelic vibes of the new Prana Crafter LP on Sunrise Ocean Bender
