Klaus Johann Grobe - Koordinaten

After the one-two punch release of a head-turning limited 10-inch EP in 2013, followed by an equally mezmerizing 7-inch (the “Traumhaft” single, reissued by TiM in Feb of ‘14), Swiss duo Klaus Johann Grobe finally unveil their full-length offering, “Im Sinne der Zeit”. In their short existence, members Sevi Landolt (organ/synths/vocals) and Daniel Bachmann (drums/vocals) have concocted a unique sound that pulls equally from motorik krautrock, skittering post-punk, organic Brazilian grooves and glittering dancefloor strut that practically begs to MOVE you.

Ariel Pink goes to great lengths to give the impression that his originals are conceived and created with jingle-like facility, but his songs are frequently far more melodically complex than they sound. This much is also true of the first Pink-penned single from Mature Themes, "Only In My Dreams": you hear that 12-string riff at the outset and immediately think "Byrds pastiche," and it's so on point that you figure it has to be stolen, or at least a knock-off.

Future Islands-On the Water

Συνταγή: παίρνεις λίγη Baltimore, στη βάση βάζεις synths, προσθέτεις μπόλικη δόση ρομαντισμού, ανακατεύεις με μια αξιόλογη φωνή, το συσκευάζεις με ένα υπέροχο εξώφυλλο. μπορεί να μην χορτάσεις και τη ψυχή σου, αλλά απέφυγες το junk food. Καλή όρεξη

Jens Lekman - An Argument With Myself

Ποπ από τη Σουηδία, έτσι όπως την αγάπησε και η μαμά σας, χωρίς πολλά κλισέ ακροβατεί αναμέσα σε τόσα είδη, που τελικά είναι το δικό του.
