Video: Sculpture – “Hackle Scam Populator”

April 24, 2014

Video: Sculpture – “Hackle Scam Populator” Another tripped out visualization of a track off Sculpture’s upcoming Membrane Pop LP, due out May 13th via Software. The video plays out like staring into a kaleidoscope on acid, as innocent, effervescent sounds play in the background. As the track devolves into a skittish shuffle, so too do... 

Video: Blondes – “Wire (Huerco S. Remix)”

April 22, 2014

Video: Blondes – “Wire (Huerco S. Remix)” I first stumbled upon Blondes with their remix of Harald Grosskopf’s “Synthesist,” a stunning rework that served as a seemingly perfect bout of modern kraut-techno slipped into RVNG Intl.’s 2011 loving reissue of Grosskopf’s under-heard Synthesist, itself a monument to...

Video: Gardland – “0214 Pt. 2”

April 15, 2014

Video: Gardland – “0214 Pt. 2” Australian duo Gardland are following their 2013 LP Syndrome Syndrome with the Improvisations EP, a set culled from live performances on Australian radio all the way back in 2012. The above video for “0214 Pt. 2” is very much an unhinged, hyper-caffeinated visual stimulation that soaks... 

Video Premiere: Skeppet – “Den Nya Kusten”

April 14, 2014

Video Premiere: Skeppet – “Den Nya Kusten” Excerpted from the lengthier 20-minute version that will appear on their upcoming debut LP for Not Not Fun, “Den Nya Kusten” finds Swedish instrumental trio Skeppet venturing deep into the unknown. With hypnotic grooves expertly paired with director Danilo Stankovic’s slow-moving images... 

Video: Nový Svět – “Punished with Longing”

April 11, 2014

Video: Nový Svět – “Punished with Longing” One thing (among probably many) you may not have realized about the Kill Shaman label is that they have a knack for digging up strange artists from around the world and introducing me to them. This happened about exactly a year ago when an amazing record by a Dutch band called Smalts found its way to...

April 9, 2014

Video Premiere: Dino Spiluttini – “Anxiety” Though Mexican experimental imprint Umor Rex has been focused lately on their vinyl debut for Chicago trio Good Willsmith, the label began its year with a split LP, pairing Cologne-based Nils Quak with Dino Spiluttini, a German musician and visual artist now based in Vienna. Titled Modular Anxiety,... 

Video: Sculpture – “Polymorphic Operator”

Video: Sculpture – “Polymorphic Operator” Following the electronic cacophony of found and processed sounds that made up Slime Code on Kaleidoscope (and subsequent reissue on Digitalis), Sculpture are prepping the release of their latest LP, Membrane Pop, due out May 13th via Brooklyn’s Software Recordings. The duo operates in an unique... 

Video Premiere: LX Sweat – “Living In The City (No Way Back)”

April 2, 2014

Video Premiere: LX Sweat – “Living In The City (No Way Back)” Directed by Phung-Tien Phan, the video for LX Sweat‘s “Living In The City (No Way Back)” is a sedated trek through all things indulgently mesmerizing. Excessively quenched by sizzurp and edited together with curious obsession, images of YouTube ephemera pop into frame, some pleasantly... 

Video Premiere: OS OVNI – “The Mirror”

April 1, 2014

Video Premiere: OS OVNI – “The Mirror” Multidimensional mysterians OS OVNI may not have invented the trend of lo-fi bedroom synth pop, but they are certainly among the genre’s most original practitioners. Cofounders Logan Owlbeemoth and Omebi Velouria have been collaborating under various names for over a decade. In 2010 they...
