A little late in the game i’ve recently discovered RVNG intl’s FRKWYS series. its a simple premise, match contemporary artists with their fore runners, and has produced some amazing results. to date my favourites have to be  volume 7 by David Borden, James Ferraro, Samuel Godin, Laurel Halo, and Daniel Lopatin and the upcoming volume 9 by Sun Araw, M. Geddes Gengras, and the Congos. FRKWYS Vol. 7 – people of the wind FRKWAYS Vol. 9 – happy song

Julia holter prepares new album



If you’ve been here before youll have heard about julia holter before. i was a massive fan of her beautiful but hard to come by album ‘tragedey’ that she put out last year on leaving records (there was a stream off the album somewhere on here if the links are still working). not resting on her laurels too long she back on RVNG intl with new album ekstasis out 8th march. looks like shes giving the greek mythology a rest for a while but this offering of otherworldly ethereal pop is just as awesome, listen for yourselves below

Demdike stare elemental eps

just received the final ep in the amazing demdike stare elemental series today. the eps are an amazing collection of haunting and disturbing compositions that they have spread across 4 12″s and released periodically over the last month through modern love. the vinyl was limited edition so if this is the first you hearing of it then your out of luck, but thankfully they’ve seen fit to issue it as a non limited 2cd release (albeit with entirely different versions of every track) some time next month.

Evian Christ

This guys dropped some amazing tunes on youtube last month that got some serious attention and it looks like its paid off. freshly signed to Tri angle you can now download high quality mp3 versions of his kings and them ep from the Triangle website. taking elements of juke and mixing them with his own brand of dark electronica whats not to love here?!
