Kasabian - Ill Ray (The King)

Northaunt

No automatic alt text available.

Northaunt is Norwegian dark ambient artist Hærleif Langås. He has been slowly carving his own niche in the ambient world by combining elements of field-recording, sparse melodic elements and existential themes.

In his own words...

"For many many years I have hiked into the woods, trying to get away from it all. Precious days offering silence and room for new thoughts. Nights spent in the wild, watching familiar forms transform as darkness fall, feeling it stir something inside, something overlooked in the stress and clutter of everyday life. This is my channelling of these feelings, my tribute if you like, to night, the woods and solitude."

Really fascinating stuff. Gets in your head.

I can get lost in this for hours.

CODEX VI is a cosmic collection of mystical music from Simon Posford and co pilot Raja Ram in which their elucidation of hallucination reveals once again, a seemingly effortless mastery of inter-dimensional audio.

The Belligerents - Flash

Eilen Jewell


Image may contain: 4 people, people standing

Eilen Jewell and her band play a collection of blues hidden gems and make them their own. Her amazing voice and the bands tight music make for one hell of an album.

I their own words...

"On Down Hearted Blue, Eilen and her long-time road band (Jerry Miller, Shawn Supra, Jason Beek) rip through greasy versions of dark blues like Charles Sheffield’s “It’s Your Voodoo Working”, Willie Dixon’s “You Know My Love”, and Albert Washington’s “One of These Days”. The band also strips down the sound, trading in drums and electric instruments for washboards, mandolins, and banjos to cover songs like Memphis Minnie’s “Nothing in Rambling”, Bessie Smith’s “Down Hearted Blues”, and Moonshine Kate’s “Poor Girl’s Story”."

Lucas Patrick Smith, AKA Robots With Rayguns, is bringing his own flavor to the retro synthwave revival and it is totally rad!

In their own words....

"It's time to slow it down with "Slow Jams", a massive collection of glistening synthpop ballads. This hybrid concept album and compilation puts together brand new tunes alongside low tempo deep cuts and even classic RWR jams revamped. After the "Fresh" house party and the "Wild" trip to the neon lit club, pop in "Slow Jams" for a smooth, sensual groove to wind your night down just right. "

It does what it says on the tin.

I LOVE THIS!!!!
