PACIFICUV

Longplay 2 in discography by

ARTIST / BAND: PACIFICUV
SONG (MP3): Funny Girl
ALBUM: WEEKENDS
FILE UNDER:
LABEL: Mazarine
INFO: pacificUV was formed in the late 1990’s in Athens, Georgia. Half the band wanted to sound like a psychedelic Jesus and Mary Chain tripping on Nyquil, while the other half wanted to play one chord for 45 minutes to determine its color. Somehow, what emerged from these disparate goals was their critically acclaimed, 4 years in the making, self-titled debut album, pacificUV that Rolling Stone called a “masterpiece”. The perfect mixture of noise and melody, the first L.P. was a sprawling ambient landscape that revealed a myriad of influences, from shoegaze to 60’s rock, to slow core to post-rock. read more from the source...

Mux Mool



ARTIST / BAND: Mux Mool
SONGs (MP3): Palace Chalice / Raw Gore
ALBUM: Planet High School
FILE UNDER: electronic
LABEL: Ghostly International
INFO:I know it’s electronic music,” Brian Lindgren says, “but sometimes I feel like an old-timey traveling musician with an M-Audio Trigger Finger instead of a guitar.” As Mux Mool, Lindgren has been criss-crossing the country by himself for years, collecting records, loops, and samples, and rocking parties in towns both large and boondock-small. Lindgren is a self-confessed nerd to the bone, an incurable doodler, a Star Trek: The Next Generation fan; he lives on energy drinks and barely sleeps, spending his days working on music and his nights absorbing Internet memes by the hard-drive load. Mux Mool’s homespun electro hip-hop is the product of an introverted mind, an extroverted imagination, and a bottomless cultural appetite

Landmark














Northern Lights (exclusive MP3)


So here we are a few years later,but where were we before?Lost in different dimensions of war and obssesive disorders,change of band members and many other shattering niuances which led to the Landmark today.With the help of Tornike Gvelesiani our recording manager who produced,managed and even recorded drums on this ep we went back to the past with a little view on the future.Here's our video by Temo Ezugbaia to the single northern lights a song and a place which is once meant to be Landmark's last resort.We can all have a sneak peak at where it started and was pure,naive and honest.Still in this songs, you can sense that the tide is changing,with maturing comes the great darkness,procrastination and indifference to the human kind.We can only expect it to get more corrupted as the sick city is slowly destabilising the idealism and happy endings in which they believed,turning them into narcisistic nihilist assholes,trampling over your ideologies which led to the sickness in the first place.

Doldrums

ARTIST / BAND: Doldrums

MP3: "I'm Homesick Sittin' Up Here In My Satellite"

ALBUM: Empire Sound

FILE UNDER: electronic, experimental, pop

LABEL: No Pain In Pop

INFO: Doldrums is a musical venture produced by Canadian artist Eric Woodhead. As a part of a larger community reacting to overhype, the plasticity of modern youth culture and it's ultimately alienating nature, his music deals with the loss of the individual in an increasingly altruistic society. Doldrums' music reflects this societal change on a personal level, as a member of the last generation to remember life pre-internet and 24 hour status updates. His androgynous voice comes across mid-panic attack, floating in a sea of chopped up samples, disembodied vocals and tribal percussion. Spearing between electro-hallucinogenic freak outs and languid nostalgia, his tracks somehow manage to elevate classic pop melodies above a sample saturated sound collage.

Other Lives

ARTIST / BAND: Other Lives

MP3s: For 12 / Tamer Animals / Song Song

ALBUM: Tamer Animals

FILE UNDER: Folk, Folk-Rock, Indie Pop

LABEL: TBD Records

INFO: There’s no track this writer’s thrashed more this year than Other Lives’ single For 12. It’s suspenseful, dreamy and awestruck in equal measures, combining undulating strings (possibly Mellotron), lightly galloping Morricone rhythms, subtle shades of piano and acoustic guitar and vocals that run the gauntlet from sighing to falsetto. Imagine an eagle’s eye view over an unbroken stretch of Brokeback Mountain prairie. Or imagine Fleet Foxes influenced by Radiohead’s Pyramid Song. And if For 12 is the absolute jewel here, the rest isn’t far behind.

Justice


ARTIST / BAND: Justice
SONG (MP3): On'n'On
ALBUM: Audio, Video, Disco.
FILE UNDER: Electro, electronic, Indie Pop, pop
INFO: According to Xavier de Rosnay of Justice, Audio, Video, Disco is lighter than their first album. With the first album being darker, and this one being "daytime music", not as aggressive as the first one.[1] The album also features more collaborations than on . In a 6/10 review, Spindescribes Justice's style on the album as, "trying their hand at '70s arena rock...melding Italo-disco and singing hair-metal guitars."[2]
The vocal parts of "Ohio" closely resemble the traditional French song "Orleans", as it was recorded by David Crosby on his solo album If I Could Only Remember My Name in 1971, although the lyrics have been changed.

Scuba



ARTIST / BAND: Scuba 
SONG (MP3): M.A.R.S. (Machinedrum Remix)
ALBUM :DJ-Kicks
FILE UNDER: Electro,  remix,
LABEL: !k7
The one thing that Paul Rose, better known as Scuba, really doesn’t want you to do is to try and pin him down. His roots are in London’s dubstep scene, but he lives in the techno metropolis of Berlin. His music is located at some unspecified point between those two cities - bass heavy, sparse, full of atmosphere and with propulsive rhythms, but above all impossible to define. His label, Hotflush, is one of dubstep’s spiritual homes, with releases by Distance, Benga and Mount Kimbie, but it also has that hard-to-categorize quality Warp had in the ’90s. He is, in a word, a maverick.

Zambri




ARTIST / BAND: Zambri
SONG (MP3): Heather
ALBUM: Glossolalia
FILE UNDER: vocal, Indie, dark, experimental, pop
LABEL: kanine records
INFO: For a first introduction into the world of Cristi Jo & Jessica Zambri, Kanine Records will be releasing Zambri’s debut EP “Glossolalia” on Nov. 8, 2011.
Zambri mixes experimental beats and dueling female vocals with captivating melodies to create unromantic love songs. Filled with gothic and avant-garde pop vocals, the songs might sound familiar, like a lost Siouxsie and the Banshees or Kate Bush classic, but they manage to bring it to an altogether new place. As if remixed by Gang Gang Dance, Zambri lands perfectly amid contemporaries Health, Grimes, Lykke Li, and The Knife.read more from the source...

Inspired and the Sleep



Little Red


ARTIST / BAND: Little Red 
SONG (MP3): "Get A Life" 
ALBUM: Midnight Remember
FILE UNDER:pop, Rock, 
LABEL:true panther
INFO:Melbourne’s Little Red have been away a while, growing up, growing down, tasting the sweet and the bittersweet in equal measures. The band now returns with the historically ‘difficult’ second album, but in this particular case they have delivered an album that is truly a quantum leap in songwriting and production. It is an inverse manifestation of the natural rock’n’roll order that stumps so many. Midnight Remember is a true accomplishment and a marked and impressive step forward in craft for primary songwriter Dominic Byrne. In the last 6 months the album has found an amazing breadth of fans in the band’s native Australia and on 10.25 it will finally see it’s remastered (with bonus tracks) release in the United States and Canada. read more from the source...
