It’s a sonorously chanted vocal track with synths and sounds creating a haunting organic and choral-esque background. FOREVERANDEVERNOMORE is released on October 14th.

NEW MUSIC: Jessica – Oh I See It

Late last year, Sydney songwriter Jessica released her second album, With Reverie. In contrast to her debut The Space Between (2020), which was based around her guitar playing, its followup is an album composed and performed beautifully on piano. The connective tissue between the two albums is Jessica’s haunting, elegiac voice. Part ethereal and dreamy, part heart wrenching and all consuming – whichever way you hear … Continue reading NEW MUSIC: Jessica – Oh I See It

NEW MUSIC: Dolphin Midwives – Break

Cascading digital droplets of synths and celestial vocals abound on this track from Dolphin Midwives‘ recently released album Body Of Water. The work of Sage Fisher, the effect of nature meeting humans in a symbiotic digitised future. Reverb, delay, pitch adjustment and more effects create the microtonal otherworldly experimental art-pop sound, along with her harp playing. The closest comparison would be Bjork I guess – … Continue reading NEW MUSIC: Dolphin Midwives – Break

NEW MUSIC: Franz Kirmann & Roberto Grosso – In Waves

Dark cosmic sounds abound on this recently released track by French electronic musician/producer Franz Kirmann & Italian guitarist Roberto Grosso. Much like the Fabels track we’ve also posted this week, this one also had us casting our mind back to the creeping electronic sounds of Massive Attack. No vocals here though, all of the atmosphere is created by haunting, see-sawing synths, processed and hypnotic guitar … Continue reading NEW MUSIC: Franz Kirmann & Roberto Grosso – In Waves

NEW MUSIC: Fabels – Waiting

Many thanks to Sydney duo Fabels for sending this song/clip our way. It’s a totally captivating dreamscape of a song. It draws on shoegaze, post-rock and ambient elements of repetition and hallucinogenic airiness. The sparkle and chime of Ben Aylward’s guitar widens the horizon of the song beautifully, allowing the atmosphere to rise and retreat with a cinematic quality that never gets overblown. Vocalist Hiske … Continue reading NEW MUSIC: Fabels – Waiting

NEW MUSIC: Held By Trees – In The Trees

Here’s a fascinating new project for fans of Talk Talk and Mark Hollis. Seven musicians who were involved in the Talk Talk albums Spirit of Eden, Laughing Stock and Hollis’ solo LP have come together as Held By Trees, led by producer/composer David Joseph. They approached the recording in a similar way as they did under Hollis – emphasising spontaneous improvisation and keeping the best … Continue reading NEW MUSIC: Held By Trees – In The Trees

NEW MUSIC: Cederick Knox – Autumn Leaf

Taken from his March EP Spack in the Box Allstars vol. 1, ‘Autumn Leaf’ is Cederick Knox‘s nod to the common jazz standard ‘Autumn Leaves’ – often used as an early track in learning jazz improvisation. Cederick Knox is a Brighton, UK based producer/composer and co-founder of the Ceremonial Laptop experimental music night and label. For this project he brought together members of Squid, Pelican … Continue reading NEW MUSIC: Cederick Knox – Autumn Leaf

NEW MUSIC: Tearjerker – Deep End

Tearjerker recently released this video clip for their new single ‘Deep End’, a dreamy, drifting slice of indie guitar rock that impresses with its slow-motion, heavy-lidded sound. Guitar notes unfurl and dissolve over the metronomically simple yet effective drumming and cyclical rhythmic quality of the song. Things take a beautifully hypnotic and immersive turn as the song fades from view in an ether of ambience … Continue reading NEW MUSIC: Tearjerker – Deep End

NEW MUSIC: Warren Ellis – Purple Perilla

From Dirty Three to the Bad Seeds and now a parallel career as a composer with and without Nick Cave, Warren Ellis has certainly led a fascinating creative life. He’s just released a new project with Marianne Faithfull and in another first he’s composed the soundtrack to a book – a recently released collection of short stories by Chinese writer Can Xue. This piece initially … Continue reading NEW MUSIC: Warren Ellis – Purple Perilla

NEW MUSIC: Alaskan Tapes – The Sky Sings Its Chorus (For Us Alone) [Pt. 1]

Ambient / post-rock / drone / soundtrack / soundscape There’s a beautifully ponderous lumber and sway to this new post-rock track from the Toronto, Canada artist Alaskan Tapes (Brady Kendall). The lulls and gentle washing peaks are perfectly paced and giving a sense of movement that carries the listener through an emotionally melancholic six minutes. What I like is that the piece never gets heavy … Continue reading NEW MUSIC: Alaskan Tapes – The Sky Sings Its Chorus (For Us Alone) [Pt. 1]
