Taiga Blues

ARTIST / BAND: Taiga Blues
MP3: Karussell
FILE UNDER: Electronica / Experimental / Alternative
LABEL: Bad Panda Records
INFO: Carsten and Michael know well how to confuse ideas.
Their name is Taiga Blues, but if you visit their website you will read “Post Rock with an Electronic Twist” and if you listen to their new song, Karrusell, you will find a strong jazz influence: this is what we call a perfect genre-contamination!

ARTIST / BAND: Man/Miracle
MP3s: Above The Salon / Hot Sprawl
ALBUM: The Shape of Things
LABEL: Third Culture
INFO: It's tempting to call MAN/MIRACLE a band, but they're more than just guys with instruments: they're four guys with musical instruments. Speaking precisely, they're really more of a group of musicians who write and perform music together-- a "band," if you will. In this configuration, they create the sort of intricate, resplendent, wooly guitar pop to which many adjectives-- including totally inapplicable ones, like "wooly"-- might be applied.

MP3: L.O.N.
FILE UNDER: Rock / Alternative / Psychedelic
LABEL: Monotreme Records
INFO: N.A.M.B. is a band from Turin, Italy. Ask them what the initials stand for, and you will probably get a different answer every time. Visit their Myspace page one day, and you might see the caption “Nascere Artisti Morire Buffoni” (“Born Artists, Die Clowns”), but the following day it could be something entirely different, like “Neuroni Annoiati Masticano Boiate” (“Bothered Neurons Chew Rubbish”)

ARTIST / BAND: Snowglobe
MP3: "Love"
ALBUM: Little More Lived In
FILE UNDER: Indie / Psychedelic / Pop
LABEL: makeshift music
INFO: Snowglobe is a rather amorphous, unwieldy group of artists who share a love for all things honest, poppy, and psychedelic. All members to date hail from Memphis, TN, but the music and idea of Snowglobe has its origins in Athens, GA. The group played many of it’s first shows with the artists of the elephant 6 collective, including Of Montreal and Olivia Tremor Control. They have since returned home, and today Snowglobe strives to continue the age old Memphis tradition of playing honest music for the right reasons.

MP3: May Day Revisited

ALBUM: May Day Revisited

FILE UNDER: Breakbeat / Experimental / Electronica

LABEL: Bad Panda Records

INFO: This is a gift from Bad Panda and swedish producer Mojib, Staffan Ulmert, who revisited May Day, a song released in 2007 by UNKLE (that featured The Duke Spirits lead singer Liela Moss).

The track is mashed together with lo-fi indie act The Radio Dept. and Mojib adds his own piano and acapella melodies and the result is a unique fusion of alternative indie, rock and electronica.

Tracey Thorn

ARTIST / BAND: Tracey Thorn

MP3: "Oh, the Divorces!"

ALBUM: Love and Its Opposite

FILE UNDER: Pop / Folk / Electronica

LABEL: Merge / Strange Feeling

INFO: After pausing an 18-year career with partner Ben Watt in best-selling alt-pop duo Everything But The Girl (1982–2000), followed by a self-imposed hiatus to start a family, Tracey Thorn re-emerged in 2007 to a wave of critical acclaim with the glittering autobiographical folk-disco of Out of the Woods, her first solo album since 1982’s indie classic A Distant Shore. Now she is back with another: the starkly beautiful Love and Its Opposite on Merge Records.
Partnering again with Berlin-based producer Ewan Pearson (who worked on much of Out of the Woods and more recently with Delphic), Tracey has created an album that is striking in its simplicity. Recorded in Berlin and London, and featuring guest contributions from Hot Chip’s Al Doyle, The Invisible’s Leo Taylor, Swedish singer-songwriter Jens Lekman, Nashville songwriter-drummer Cortney Tidwell and Lost Valentinos’ guitarist Jono Ma, Love and Its Opposite is steeped in a compassionate directness. The tight, often undecorated arrangements for guitar, piano, bass, and drums (and a smattering of strings and woodwinds) serve ten songs over a compact thirty-nine minutes that confront the full unvarnished weight of complex relationships in flux.

ARTIST / BAND: Osborne

MP3: Osborne: "Afrika (Bullion Remix)"

ALBUM: The Ghostly Remixes

FILE UNDER: Electro, Afro

LABEL: ghostly

INFO: There are lots of stories about DJ and producer Todd Osborn (no e, mind you). They are, unfortunately for your ego and ours, all true. Our Lego-sculpting, electron microscope-owning, Japanese-speaking uber-producer puts his joy of life and the art of making into his music. Todd fixes and flies planes, has fabricated a video game kiosk out of hospital equipment, and is finishing his hovercraft as we write this. We could call him house music’s Macgyver,

but that would be obvious. I guess we just did.

MP3: A42

ALBUM: Condors

FILE UNDER: electro pop

LABEL: monotreme records

INFO: We are very proud to be releasing 'Condors', the debut album of London UK trio Nedry, whose dazzling fusion of electronica, instrumental rock, dub-step rhythms and hauntingly beautiful vocals has already generated quite a well-deserved buzz in the UK media.
Nedry is Matt Parker, Chris Amblin and Ayu Okakita. Nedry create music to bounce to, rock-out to and get lost in. Their beautiful sound and arresting beats are from and for the ‘post-’ generation. Their sound is dark and ambient but broken-up and lifted by moments of glitch and fuzzy, melodic guitars. Both live and on record they use innovative production techniques to create a truly original sound.
