Damscray – Los Animales EP (Humanworkshop)

Well, it’s been in the pipeline for a while and a few days ago it emerged into the light of day, a brand spanking new release from Damscray, that Russian purveyor of experimentally. dark/intriguing Trip Hop. Or soundscapes. Or something. Read the rest of this entry »

nobonus NoBonus – No Code

 A thoroughly Doors-esque single here from the Psychedelic, whirling wastelands of  France. Surprisingly good quality for a live recording but not exactly the most  original effort, still, it’s an entertaining enough listen and at 15 minutes it’s well worth  the money you’re not paying for this nicely crafted effort.  Click on the picture to head  over and download.

Antropy – Dirty Little Mind

A fairly polished little dose of Indie Pop, not particularly inspired and a bit of an audio mash up of a fairly predictable list of influences but it does what it does better than most and is more than listenable enough to have somewhere on a Summer play list.

Electric Sheep Blowjob – One Beat Sessions

If you’re going to choose a name like that you really should produce music to match it rather than fairly generic Electronica, but that aside… A dose of small and well crafted Electronica from Finland (Electric Sheep Blowjob – would have worked far better on a Death Metal band but ho hum), not all that exciting but in the vast ocean of online bedroom DJ releases this holds its own somewhere just above the middle.

Duck – Logical Fallacy (Fresh Poulp)

Emerging from French Dub/Electronica/D’n’B/Trip Hop specialist NetLabel ‘Fresh Poulp’; Duck, or possibly ‘DucK’, is a purveyor of ‘Electro-Dub’, apparently, which as a sentence is jam packed enough with relatively meaningless genre definitions to satiate even the most determinedly anal and organised of souls.

Four Eyed Boy – Sueños EP

Four Eyed Boy – Sueños (DelHotel Records)

Coming out of the same NetLabel as the positively spiffing ‘Mr Racoon‘ Four Eyed Boy is an Electro-Pop act who’ve just released their debut EP, ‘Sueños’, which, after a fashion, has a similarly pleasing, upbeat feel to his stable mates effort ‘Katy‘. So, that’s good then, comparison to Mr Racoon can only be a good thing and with Summer looming in the distance cheerful pop is increasingly the order of the day and by the looks of things the Mexican label seems to have enough of it to keep the world supplied for years to come although the quality, as I’m discovering, can be a little sketchy.

10Marxe Eskerda – Hitlipollas

Can’t really review a three minute, Spanish Punk single in any real depth but it’s worth hearing nonetheless. No idea what the lyrics are about but even with the soundbite from Herr Hitler at the intro I’m willing to assume it isn’t a homage to the late, mono-balled lad himself. Give it a go, Punk as fuck.

 

 

 

1200Radiographia – Falso MC

Brazilian Hip Hop single with a meandering feel to it offset by some solid vocals, of course it’s in Portugese so I’m just assuming that his lyrics actually make sense but worth a try anyway.

 

 

 

 

pbDoc – Pirate Bay

A novelty Electro-Pop offering dedicated to those fine folks in the Piracy world, most notably Pirate Bay, not spectacular by any means but well intended and a pleasant enough bit of throwaway Pop. Arggggg.

Mr. Racoon – Katy (Delhotel Records)

This is the first album I’ve gotten around to reviewing from Mexican Net Label ‘Delhotel Records’, which is something to a surprise given the rather hefty back catalogue they can boast and the element of novelty entailed in finding a Mexican Net Label in a world of free music dominated by Europeans and Yanks. But I’ve finally gotten round to giving something from their extensive stable more than a cursory once over and I’m not disappointed that I did.

Damscray – Horseboy EP

A while back now I took a listen to Russian Hip-Hoppers SCLWN’s album ‘Everything is OK’ and going by my half imagined memories and the fact that it’s still stored on my MP3 player I’m fairly sure that I said lots of nice things about it. I especially recall lavishing some, slightly scared, love on the music itself which had a nicely deep, intimidating almost industrial feel to it and, lo and behold, the universe has continued to serve my fetish for music to feel slightly unnerved to by giving me this EP.
