SOHN - Bloodflows
OK, this is really the last video with forest content I will ever post. I’ve had enough. Come up with new locations, people.
SOHN - Bloodflows
Here’s another beautiful track by SOHN. “Bloodflows” is a tender synth pop track with vocals so gentle and seductive that you hope that the person he’s singing about comes back and loves him right.
Laura Mvula - Green Garden (S O H N Remix)
London-born, Vienna-based producer S O H Nshares his latest masterpiece - a remix of Laura Mvula’s “Green Gardem.” Mvula’s soulful vocals now sit atop a gentle head nodding beat, some well-placed handclaps, and an unexpected interlude. Stream it above.
S O H N - The Wheel (Nvie Motho Remix)
Both S O H N and Nvie Motho happen to live in Vienna, but until recently they had nothing to do with each other: S O H N used to be Trouble Over Tokyo and was rooted in the Austrian indie community, while Nvie Motho is best known for producing Gerard’s Lissabon, a cutting edge hip hop track. These are people from very different scenes who yet somehow belong to the same fashionable movement of combining electronic with r&b elements.
[This is what FM4 should be playing on heavy rotation. Internationally (or should I say internetionally? </badpun>), S O H N and Gerard are the ”homegrown” off-mainstream acts that get the most attention at the moment, yet they are being ignored (zero plays of either) by the one institution that should care about them: Austria’s “alternative and avantgarde” radio station. Oblivion to new developments is not going to help against the fading relevance of radio. Just saying.]
[ETA: I am sorry for the perceived FM4 bashing. At least in the case of S O H N, it is not the radio station’s fault but rather due to circumstances or a viral marketing strategy or whatever.]
Video: S O H N - The Wheel
Debüt-Single vom Allerlieblingswahlwiener, jetzt mit schneidigem Video dazu.
Double recommendation: Go listen to S O H N a.k.a. the new alias of Toph Taylor, and go follow Tori’s Nest for all things electronica/r&b here on Tumblr.
