Carlos y Gaby have made a strange album to listen to, it doesn't sound like it's been created, more discovered. It strikes me as a series of soundtrack sketches for movies that never made it. Obscurred field recordings creep in and out, beautifully strung out synths wooze and weave between intermittent (yet insistent) beats.
Sometimes you're not sure where you're being taken and yet it's utterly compelling.
Headphone music at it's best.

Plug in...

Happy Summer Solstice (I Love You, I Laugh You)

Sugar Flowers (Flyin' High Is The Cornerstone)

'La Voz Sabia De Los Comos' gets a vinyl release on Alpha Pup on 18th March or you can buy the mp3 release now from itunes...

the album also features a smashing Daedelus remix too

The Spacesuit Catalyst has got serious skills, these four songs showcase a flair for slowburning epic electronics and 8-bit glitchy monsters...


Running Away




Harmonic 313 released 'EP1' on Warp this week and it's pretty damn nice with some splendid use of Speak & Spell style samples to set the tone of music made by bleepy toys.
The packaging hints at a puzzle you can solve on his fantastic website in order to download an unreleased track. You can grab it here too....

Problem 7


Monday, January 28, 2008 fell off the bed and blood is eveywhere.
Such violence reminds me of Amon Tobin's favourite set closer...

There's already an early contender for album of 2008, Atlas Sound (the solo project of Deerhunter frontman Bradford Cox) is a woozy trip through fuzzed out lushness and glorious space rock...

Son Lux drops his album 'At war with walls & mazes' on 26th February and it's set to be a bit special. A one man classically trained band of disintegration and dusk...
The albums opening song hints at half asleep songs of lucid dreams... lost voices, clattering drums and moments of clarity...
