Buddy Peace – Golden Bangkok Guest

Coming from Manchester’s Natural Curriculum crew, Aver’s new release is a great example of break heavy, funky hip hop that keeps you guessing. On the face of it the EP keeps your head nodding and speakers bumping, but on closer inspection this is multi-layered music, creeping in more left of field sounds and influences. “And Now For Something Exactly The Same…” covers both instrumental and vocal hip hop with a super nice video for the upbeat banger “She Prayed To The Moon”, you all need to get you ears round this now!

Chew – The 3D EP

We are always interested in chewhearing something new, experimental, raw and psychedelic, Atlanta band Chew do not disappoint.
This three piece band mix alternative rock, psychedelia, elements of jazz, shoe gazer, electronics, avant-garde experimentation, creating a real jumble of sound that is all over the place, but in the best possible way. Chew use a sampler and analogue synth mashed with live instrumentation to pull influences from all things psychedelic.  The result is a hypnotic, electronic, spacewave experience.

El Michels Affair & The Shacks – Strange Boy

El MichelsEl Michels Affair have teamed up with New York band The Shacks for the new single, “Strange Boy” b/w “No Surprise”.
Strange Boy sounds like the Five Keys met Neil Young and cut a record with Jane Birkin, but in English. A fuzzed out, heavy backing track with doo-wop background vocals create a peculiar, but perfect bed for singer Shannon’s dead pan celebration of her strange boy, of whom she would gladly “drink the kool aid from his cup”.
Side B, No Surprise is a perfect blend of El Michels Affairs hazy, cinematic soul and 60’s pop ala Sonny and Cher.
The 7″ single is available to buy now from Big Crown Records.

 

Cryptochrome – Cloud

Cryptochrome release the 6th video from their forthcoming album “More Human”. As ever “Cloud” is an exciting slice of off-key, electronic, hip hop with left-field leanings and a great video. Once again leaving us wanting more, we are definitely looking forward to the album and so should you be.

Oloff – Who Else Wish

We are always interested in hearing new, slightly odd hip hop coming out of the UK and the new video from Oloff definitely fits the bill. Having been making music for himself for some years now, Bristol based Oloff is now putting his music out for public consumption.
With two albums up on his bandcamp site for free download, the track and video “Who Else Wish” are the latest fruits of his labour.

Kuparilinna – Kuparilinna

Band member Tuomas Palonen, has been collecting music of this style and from this era for some years now and has produced some excellent modern music heavily influenced by this sound.
This is definitely worth a listen if you like a bit of folk, psych, alternative rock, grab it now!
