Safe to say Becoming Phill is the only southern African electro/funk/boogie producer in the game right now. He won a Namibian Music Award a few years back for some hiphop records then went straight into this kind of sound, and here’s the album – Electrum. It’s a mix of electro, funk & r&b that is doing very well on the dancefloors in Namibia right now. It features vocals from Namibian singers Shishani and Dantago, and guitar from Christian Polloni, who has worked with Papa Wemba and Youssou N’Dour.

New track - Immediate Engagements by Blue Plutos

2017-01-04 20:59:21 UTC

New

 Here's a warm blast of gauzy guitar-based rock from Blue Plutos, a track called "Immediate Engagements".  Off the group's new album 'Moon Language', "Immediate Engagements is about getting older and recognizing the need to really focus attention on the interests or hobbies or matter most, in order to feel like we're maximizing the time we have on this Earth.

"As far as the writing of the song, we wanted to write a song that was really straightforward but also kind of chugging at the same time," Ryan Agnew explains. "I was listening to a lot of Beach House and and you will know us by the trail of dead... while we were recording it which I think is reflected in the production of the song. The riff at the end of the song is a very fun one to play and was written separately but fits well - it also has a really nice solo from Tyler. "

The trio - based out of both Brooklyn, NY and Boston, MA - is comprised of Tyler and Matt Agnew, in addition to Mat Lundin. Their 2014 EP, Dennett St, combined jangle-pop with cut-up electroacoustic beats, and reverb-drenched samples. The new album pursues a more layered, eclectic sound.


Genre : alternative, indie, rock, synthpop

Missed the Boat by Erik Kramer

On Saturday, May 20, multi-instrumentalist and lauded bass player Erik Kramer released his debut studio endeavor, an EP entitled ‘Missed the Boat.’ The Brooklyn-based musician has an especially eclectic sound, one that employs the talent of a slew of musicians: saxophone, trombone, viola, trumpet, back-up vocalists - they’re all there. An experimental record through and through, ‘Missed the Boat’ is an indie record quite unlike anything else that’s come across my desk in recent months.

The Great Long Distance by John D. Reedy

The Great Long Distance is an audible recollection of the first 12 months of a long distance relationship, including the highs and lows and moments in between. It is a journal without words, each of the 12 tracks representing each month respectively. Inspired by the format of NIN's "Ghosts I-IV", the album is a sonic tapestry of different moods and themes, with various recurring motifs and the subtle melding of synthesizer and samples; the result something not quite classical, ambient or electronic - rather, an eclectic blend of the three. For fans of Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm and later Ulver
