Joman - Aperture

Image may contain: one or more people and close-up


I've been a fan of Joman for a while now. He has sweet production skills and a serious sense of humor.

Known for mostly for cheeky remixes like 'Daymanstep'.....



....and remixes like the one he did for Tron:Legacy 'The Grid'....



....he has recently stepped up his game, A LOT.

Between DJing gigs and hosting a radio show (The Joman Show on KUHS Denver) he has found the time to put out his first full length artist album.

Sounding like a cross between Pretty Lights and BT, I can honestly say I was pleasantly surprised on first listening to the album. I expected dubstep and electronica but I didn't expect him to be singing....and singing well (think BT's 'Movement In Still Life' album). As usual the production level is top notch and he even wickedly uses electric guitar throughout the album with great effect.

Don't worry though, he still throws in the cheeky song 'Reckless Millennial' to bring a little levity to the very intellegent and emotion album.

Fantastic. Pick it up now.

Julie's Haircut

Image may contain: one or more people, people on stage, concert and indoor

This is such a fantastic band. They make sounds from multiple genres and are insanely good.

I LOVE THIS!!!

In their own words...

"Active since the late nineties, Julie's Haircut is a band from Emilia, northern Italy, devoted to spacey, hypnotic sounds. The band’s music has evolved in time from the garage-rock soulful energy of their debut towards more experimental grounds, focusing on improv and sound research, without losing touch with the groove and melody that characterized their music since day one. "

Check it out for yourself.

You'll thank me later.

The Bedroom Witch

No automatic alt text available.

This is some really cool Goth-pop from Los Angeles artist Sepehr Mashiahof, also known as ''The Bedroom Witch'.

In her own words...

"Bedroom Witch, the self-described “misunderstood maker of the veil,” is the bedroom goth pop project by Sepehr Mashiahof, a trans-Iranian artist based in Los Angeles. Injury, her third album, is a metaphor for trauma that is sustained and irremovable. “The lyrics invoke visions of safe spaces for the trans/queer body and present forms,” Mashiahof writes, “through worlds that are pleasantly lonely and apocalyptic to cope with your current reality.

It's dark and creepy...and I dig it.

Magdalena Bay

Image may contain: 2 people, people sitting and people playing musical instruments

Magdalena Bay is, In their own words.....

"a pop duo comprised of Mica Tenenbaum (songwriting and vocals) and Matthew Lewin (songwriting and production). After being in both a prog-rock band and a relationship together throughout high school, the couple went to college in different states, causing and abrupt end to their musical and romantic relationship. Now, after two years apart, Matthew and Mica are reunited under Magdalena Bay, driven by a passion for creating crafty and electrifying pop music."

These tracks are filled with awesome synths, hypnotizing vocals and tons of fun. They call it Future 90's-Throwback Space Pop and that kinda sums it up. I'm really digging it, that is for sure.

My favorite track out of the following three is Neon. So chill, groovy and that SAXOPHONE!!!

I am really looking forward to hearing a lot more from these two.
