New Native - Twisting
Wow, how many record labels can one single act have? Four, apparently, in the case of New Native, an indie emo punk band that appeared on the radar rather suddenly and has been taking steps very professionally ever since.
Free download via the Goddamn Records Bandcamp.
N.I.K.O. - Als Ich Noch Schlief
from Zwischen Asphalt und Milchstraße, out on April 4
This is what I like to call “breakfast TV rap”, i.e. something that has been robbed off all lumps and bumps and is now a bland, quite forgettable consumer product. Supposedly the album also has more serious songs but after this introduction I cannot be bothered to look for them. However, if you used to be a really big Max Herre fan and are looking for something somewhat similar, you can download the single on bandcamp.
Theophilus London - Do Girls (Preview)
beat by Cid Rim
Mr. London and Cid Rim, I like this combination. Bragging about how Theophilus London’s magic stick converted a convinced lesbian to heterosexuality, ugh, not so much. R&B, I love you but sometimes your damn nauseating lyrics bring me down. Free download here.
Wandl - Prunk
No honestly, how do you talk about electronic instrumental music without sounding like a total wannabe philosopher? Anyway, this is a free download here.
Also, scrolling up and down really fast while looking at the cover image is a lot of fun.
Chronic City feat. Sleep Sleep - Ocean Of Luxury, from the Myra Falls EP (free download on the band’s website)
Alliterations and reduplications make a great team.
Mile Me Deaf - Third From The Sun, from the next Mile Me Deaf album, out sometime in spring 2014 on Siluh Records
Season’s Greetings from Siluh come in the shape of a new Mile Me Deaf track called “Third From The Sun” which is a free download via Bandcamp until the 26th of December.
For the small price of giving Bilderbuch your e-mail address, you can now download the brilliant Moonboots (with or without autotune) for free from their website. You know you want it.
Beach Girls And The Monster - I Go Surfing
Our most recent Music Alliance Pact submission now also comes with a music video. This is still a free download and works great against autumn melancholia.
Francis International Airport - Pitch Paired
Free download via the Siluh Soundcloud. The track became an FM4 hit despite its non-traditional song structure, and rightfully so. The first half is super catchy, the second one super hypnotical, and I can’t decide which one I like better. And if you haven’t got the album yet (why?) or aren’t a Spotify user (why?), you are strongly advised to download the track now.
Austra - Home (Space Echo Trip Extended)
Sweet. caTekk’s and Lee Stevens’ new project Space Echo kicks off with an Austra remix. Free download via Soundcloud.
I-Wolf & The Chainreactions - Exploitation Blues (Burnin Tears Remix)
More loungy than the original, this is a free download via the Seayou Soundcloud.
Catastrophe & Cure - Quite Alright (Neorama Remix)
Kings Of Convenience are cool. The Whitest Boy Alive is a little cooler. Do you get the analogy? If so, you know what to do: download the track for free via Soundcloud.
Alexandr Vatagin - Mantova, from Serza, out now on Valeot Records
This is a free download over at the label’s website. Funny thing, a few days ago I got epically wasted at B72 and if someone had told me that the same guy that was partly responsible for the most classic Nullerjahre Indiedisco DJ set (all the hits! Strokes, Jet, Hot Chip, it was all there) makes this kind of music I would not have believed it.
