Moist Jazz, by TEEN SMOKING

Forward-thinking experimental electronics peppered with free-jazz – TEEN SMOKING goes all out in this mini album Moist Jazz.

Released in October 2020 – Moist Jazz is a 6 track project that is hard to pin down. Drawing from experimental corners of sound creation such as plunderphonics, harsh noise and freeform jazz. Synths flicker with lo-fi charm, poised against churning atmospherics and occasional flourishing rhythms and melodies.

The album sits at a nice, relaxed pace. Tracks like Atlantean Fight Song and Machine Wash provide a mellow, downtempo experience – breaking up the manic acid-jams. It never gets too hectic, but it is a few active steps away from ambient, despite the very atmospheric nature of the songs.

For fans of plunderphonic vaporwave and experimental ambience – you’ll find this one a unique and rewarding listen. Maybe if we’re lucky it will get a tape release! In the meantime, you can stream and download via Bandcamp.

happyscanner EP, by Online Tropics

Surreal post-pop presented by PEDICURE RECORDS – we have the happyscanner EP by Online Tropics – a collection of 3 crunchy and glossy experimental tracks.

The sounds conjure unique images – luminescent vacant plazas, sterile and glistening under an alien sun.

You could call these sounds deconstructed, as we find Online Tropics using an interesting stripped-down and segmented writing style. Leaning towards minimalism even at its most complex….

Almost robotic vocals pepper the tracks, lending to the interesting flavor. First oddly satisfying, eventually addicting. A very nice listen!

Tunnel Speeches – Self Titled

Intriguing electro-acoustic experiments from avant-garde outfit Tunnel Speeches.

This debut collaboration is a very interesting listen – weaving it’s way between lofi beats, plunderphonic ambience and post-rock.

The interaction between Drums and Guitar are molded together with the help of strangely satisfying samples and atmospherics. Dissonant at times, in the best way possible.

Gritty choppy percussion sits as the foundation for these tracks – stretched over 11 improvisational jams – Tunnel Speeches are not shy with mixing styles together with quite a pleasing outcome. Avant jazz collides with dark ambient and lo-fi hip hop.

Overall it’s a great listen that’s had me coming back again and again – lucky for us it’s available on Cassette tape for now! Snag it or the digital version from the official Bandcamp page today.

smellophone, by laundry

Such yummy and thoughtful beats from experimental duo laundrysmellophone is a unique and fun collection of tracks. Dark and fuzzy like a juicy plum, it is waiting to be bitten into!

Sometimes the sounds get quite avant-garde, but they are all grounded in delicious lo-fi beats drenched in dank atmospherics. The realm is hazy and shredded, as if viewed through CRT goggles – ripping and morphing the content as it passes through.

It’s dark yet playful – dwelling mostly in mellow and melancholy vibes while maintaining a lighthearted spirit! Even when approaching it’s most experimental (which it does get quite interesting~!), there is always a subtle thread of innocence tying things together.

The 10 tracks wander between harsh noise walls and lofi beat experimentations quite seamlessly. Impressively bridging the gaps between different genres and sounds, it’s a lovely listen and highly encouraged for a nice sonic expedition.

Ingress Egress, by THE GAYE DEVICE

Soothing and wholesome ambient from THE GAYE DEVICEingress egress is a powerful cinematic synth journey.

Stretched over 8 luscious tracks, the album wanders through retro cyberpunk vibes, floating through a glowing synthetic haze.

Sometimes hopeful, sometimes brooding – yet always satisfying on a deep level. There is a mystical and ethereal flavor to the soundscapes while remaining quite synthetic – like a holodeck of lush wonder.

The tracks are long and thoughtful. Blissful even. Perfect to listen with a cup of coffee or light rain-showers outside.

Pick up the digital album via Bandcamp and explore the rest of the discography while you’re there!

Eternity Hotline – Soy Sauce (Music Video)

Feast your eyes and your ears upon the brilliant dark thickness of Soy Sauce!

We are very excited to premier this amazingly twisted music video for Eternity Hotlines’ track from their latest album, Super Glue.

The video itself is a fun journey through a bleak yet surreal world – scooting playfully along the edge of the void whilst having an out-of-body experience.

Retro polygonal forms flicker in and out of existence atop an abyssal pool, dark as soy sauce! Eventually we wake up in our dentists office – that was one powerful dose of anesthetic, we think to ourselves. Perhaps it was laced with something more powerful…

Be sure to check out the full album from Eternity Hotline, which we took a close listen to recently!
