Premiere: Cubs – “Gulliver”

July 25, 2013

Premiere: Cubs – “Gulliver” For me, a large part of Cubs’ music is the collective’s use of film samples. Their 2012 EP Willowfield utilised snippets from movies like David Lynch’s The Straight Story and Peter Fonda’s The Hired Hand to successfully create an added layer of intrigue to their delicately haunting... 

Mountains — Mountains Mountains Mountains

July 24, 2013

Mountains — Mountains Mountains Mountains Originally released on eccentric Baltimore boutique imprint Catsup Plate in 2008, Mountains Mountains Mountains is the aural equivalent of a band at a crossroads. Koen Holtkamp and Brendon Anderegg’s third LP as Mountains quietly surfaced as a new direction for the duo, who’d cut their...

This one features Vince Staples and Casey Veggies, two long time OF collaborators that I’m pretty happy to see working with the crew again. All...

Xander Harris – “Red Sky Sprawl”

July 15, 2013

Xander Harris – “Red Sky Sprawl” Since moving to Austin I’ve had the awesome pleasure of befriending one of my biggest contemporary synth influences, Xander Harris. Consider that a disclaimer if you will. His most recent effort on Not Not Fun, The New Dark Age of Love, is as mysterious as it is beautiful; weaving an intimate story... 

Hoofus – “Night Forage”

July 11, 2013

Hoofus – “Night Forage” The gloriously offbeat Exotic Pylon just dropped Hoofus‘ new Several Wolves album and have been quick to tantalise us with a video for “Night Forage.” It’s brief, clocking in at just over a minute, but everything you’d want from the Norfolk, UK electronic artist is...

The Manx – “Blood Gold”

July 10, 2013

The Manx – “Blood Gold” Two bad things about this video: 1. That it exists, coupled with the fact that I just watched it, there is no possible way I’m making it through the next half hour of my life without posting it to Decoder’s illustrious blog/video section given the contents of the clip, which of course leads...

July 9, 2013

Sidi Touré – Alafia In spite of Sidi Touré’s growing notoriety over the last several years, I’m just lately discovering his recordings thanks to a third announced LP, Alafia, for Thrill Jockey Records – three in as many years – which the label teases in the short clip above. Preorders are open,... 

Drumcell – “Disturbance”

July 3, 2013

Drumcell – “Disturbance” Bring out the gimp! And then melt it down into an icky mess… CLR will release their debut Drumcell album, Sleep Complex, on August 30th. The video for “Disturbance”, which you can watch above, precedes it and provides an insight into the dark, twisted mind of the rising techno artist. Drumcell...
