MIXTAPE: Chris Liu

August 31, 2011

0

If you didn’t know already, Chris Liu sings and plays guitar in Brave Bird.  As well as this, he listens to some pretty interesting tunes. As these mixtape things go, I emailed him asking for some songs he digs, and he was kind enough to abide. The 11-song playlist is available for download at the bottom of […]

V/A – ‘3 Years Ahead: The Cloud Rap Tape’

August 31, 2011

0

As mentioned by our resident hippy-hopper T recently, ‘cloud rap’ has started to make its presence known of late, thanks in part to the success of Tyler, The Creator and co., as well as the the growing popularity and demand for Clams Casino-produced tracks, gaining artists (as well as like-minded producers) such as Main Attrakionz […]

The One AM Radio – ‘Heaven Is Attached By A Slender Thread’

August 30, 2011

0

This is way off base to what I usually post, and even further from what I usually listen to, but for some reason I really like this album.  ‘The One AM Radio’ is a mixture of electronic tweaked acoustics and layered vocal melodies, and is a project of this dude called ‘Hrishikesh Hirway’.  I’ve been […]

Calculator – ‘New Forms’

August 30, 2011

0

For anybody who hasn’t gotten the new calculator album, here it is.  Slightly different from their first LP, with more complex guitar lines and a slightly heavier, more dense feel.  Calculator make some great screamo though, so for fans of the genre, this is a must.  If you haven’t heard the first LP, ‘These Roots […]

Wetnurse – ‘Invisible City’

August 30, 2011

1

Who can blame me for the fact that I tend to forget just how great Wetnurse‘s Invisible City is? Released in 2008, the record garnished a miniscule amount of attention, but just enough for me to listen to it and get hooked. You always take a risk listening to a totally unknown band’s album, but by […]

Masakari – ‘Sleep // Rot’

August 29, 2011

0

Masakari built up a pretty fearsome reputation last year on the basis of their ferocious Eden Compromised and The Prophet Feeds releases, and Sleep // Rot is their latest 7″, following a split LP with like-minded German crusties Alpinist earlier this month. Half the attraction of this single is their totally righteous cover of seminal […]

Into It. Over It. – ‘12 Towns Compilation’

August 28, 2011

2

Not sure why, but even though this came out officially August 9th, it’s been pretty hard to find.  So here’s the songs off ’12 Towns’ compiled.  It’s actually probably my favourite collection of IIOI tunes, and makes for a pretty great listen.  His new album ‘proper’ comes out September 27th, which i’ll be sure to […]
