Bleach Athletixx is the new project from Max Holiday, who gave us some wonderfully infectious tracks in 2012 (“Pretender“, “Teenager“) reminiscent of Wolf Parade’s key-led fervor. Bleach Athletixx’s fantastic new track, “California Future”, shows continued growth — yet also some familiarity in its energetic synth-driven intro. Gradual additions thereafter, from guitar distortion to an exotic-sounding synth addition, […] The post Bleach Athletixx – “California Future” appeared first on .
Involuntary Memories, the new album from Toronto-based rock experimentalists Plastic Handgun, is a genre-mashing ride through moments of trickling electro-acoustical beauty (“Capillary Vessel”) and atmospheric industrial alternative in the vein of A Perfect Circle and Tool, yet with a post-rock component reminiscent of Sigur Rós and Explosions in the Sky. While the complexity of Involuntary Memories makes it […] The post Plastic Handgun – “Capillary Vessel” appeared first on .

The vibrant composition, led by breathless keys and string swipes, is made even more affecting by a well-executed video that reflects the track’s namesake beautifully; an old man’s personal journey through his own memories proves to be […] The post Pedro Meirelles – “Nostalgia appeared first on .
No wonder this track was #1 on Hype Machine’s non-remix charts immediately upon release. It’s one of the best songs I’ve heard this year. Absofacto’s “Dissolve” immediately touts a well-executed burst of eclectic stylistic flair, enjoyably difficult to classify in its welcome mixture of nostalgic pop, warbly electronica, and hints of R&B. The impressive stylistic […] The post Absofacto – “Dissolve” appeared first on .
As its title foreshadows, Hollywood Principle’s “Breathing Underwater” sounds like it takes place in an underwater paradise. The lush synth trickles and sensuous vocals both remind again of Little Dragon, with the serene development and key-laden beauty also reminiscent of Hikaru Utada — and aquatically-minded electro-pop tracks of hers like “Colors“, specifically. Just a minute […] The post Hollywood Principle – “Breathing Underwater” appeared first on .
Ian Keteku’s signature sound blends his caressing and thought-provoking poetry with futuristic electronica, concocting visions of space and dystopia as well as touching on themes of revolution, race, lust and loss. Think downtempo instrumental electronica combined with futuristic spoken-word. Also the 2010 World Poetry Slam champion, Keteku will release his sophomore album, Love & Lumumba, […] The post Ian Keteku – “Proxima Centauri” appeared first on .
