Dawn of Claymation, by Zach Dolin

Beautiful and Adorable sounds incoming!

Dawn of Claymation is a new 6-Track synth project by Zach Dolin brought to us by Ingrown Records. Hovering somewhere between chiptune soundtrack of your childhood favorite video game and long-lost solo project of *insert 70’s Prog Rock Keyboardist name here* – and the result is quite satisfying! Utilizing the Roland SC-88 Pro, Zach taps into the tones of the late 90’s, manifesting a strange world of freeware monster sprites zooming around the listener. Combined with the suggestion of “Claymation”, it is not hard at all to imagine these songs bumping behind some earthworm-jim-esque PC platforming. It’s triumphant and wholesome, with just enough substance to entice listen after listen. Giving this one a massive recommendation – you can pick up the digital version of the album via Bandcamp.

Consider supporting Ingrown Records directly as well as Zach via his personal bandcamp page!

Good Morning Miss Fox, by All Things Flow

Beautifully mellow Chill-hop and Ambient from Saigon Trio All Things Flow – Good Morning Miss Fox is a compact 5-track project with big moods and emotion. Displaying quite a nice variety of style and approach, the songs float in-between relaxed beats and delicate, thoughtful guitar/synth noodlings. All of it is painted with a soft yet vibrant palette, bringing about those feelings of warm nostalgia. This is some highly recommended morning music, perfect with a cup of tea and a hazy sky…

Hypnosis EP, by Deep Shoq

Texan Label Sunset Waves presents us with a beautiful and dynamic EP from Deep Shoq – Hypnosis. A lovely 6-track of diverse yet danceable tracks – pulling inspiration from unique corners of electronic music and swirling them together satisfyingly. Dipping its toes into psychedelic bass, future garage and fuzzy corners of retro club. Surface, the last track on the record, is one of my favorites – if only for the unique juxtaposition of nu-garage ambient atmosphere and fierce dancefloor kickdrum. You can stream it on the usual platforms or throw some support direct on Bandcamp. Nice summertime jams – give ’em a taste….

Tigress, by Coppice Halifax

a0947043683_10

The incredible output of Coppice Halifax continues with this wonderful double-length LP – Tigress. This commissioned 2-hour double album has an interesting story (please read via the bandcamp page!), and we are certainly lucky to have it available publicly! Aside from the unique intent and concept of the album, it’s packed with lush and warm atmospheric synthwork. Tracks built with heavy ambience, evolving into trip-hop grooves that would satisfy any Boards of Canada fan. It’s a wonderful record to throw on and get lost inside…

New Cascadia, by Transpacifica

a0207543508_10

Sultry synthwave with some massive melodies – North Ireland producer Transpacifica presents a new 5-track EP conceptualized around a fictional utopian commune in the not-so-distant future. Retro riffs grab your attention and blasting 80’s drums keep you pinned down for the duration! And ohh my, those riffs, they are both beautiful and bountiful – leaving tons of sonic tidbits lodged in my head. Highly recommended if you dig downtempo synthesizer jams and cinematic synthwave!

S P O R T : DELUXE, by TYLER HOLMES

a1132377179_10

Released back in August 2017 but just reaching my ears now (forgive me!) – I have become hypnotized and captivated by S P O R T : DELUXE by TYLER HOLMES. Available via Oakland imprint Ratskin Records, this 9-track project bleeds and oozes with expressive energy. Tyler is unafraid to truly explore the sonic territory around him, using an expansive palette of instruments, sounds and influences. There is a strange focus to everything, as if all the madness were arranged in a very particular way….

Returns, by Chaitune

a2468002902_10

Phenomenal sonic experiments – true to the description of sample collages – these tracks are drenched in atmosphere and emotion. The album is streaming everywhere now but you can support the artist and purchase directly from bandcamp!

You Were Never Here – by Hate Without Love

Kaiseki Digital presents us with a beautiful EP from producer Hate Without Love. The 4-track project has a heavy nostalgic vibe – almost as if the whole thing is being viewed like old home videos from a projector.

Tracks washed in rounded synth tones and soaring vocal abstractions, there is a big vibe within to enjoy..
