Htrk - Psychic 9-5 Club


Htrk  Psychic 9-5 Club (Ghostly International) Comentários: 'Psychic 9-5 Club' is the nigh-on flawless 3rd album from HTRK - quite easily their most ambitious and rewarding outing yet. In contrast with the affective weight and morbid pallor of their 'Work (Work, Work)' LP - which was constructed as a duo after band-member Sean Stewart tragically died halfway through recording, this new suite finds space for a sliver of reflective light epitomised by the pathos of Jonnine Standish's vocals and Nigel Yang's deft, spaciously dub-wise production. There's still that sense of grief and dysphoria, but it feels like they've come, or are coming to terms with it in a manner only HTRK could carry off with such impeccable grace. There are obvious comparisons to be made with The XX at their most withdrawn, but the whole thing is weighed down by a perfect, dim-lit amalgamation of pulsing drum machines, off-key synths and distilled vocals - it sounds like an expensive, painstaking production, in the best possible sense. 
From the levitating dub of opener 'Give It Up' to the shimmering electronics of 'The Body You Deserve', we're in the presence of transcendent brilliance throughout 'Psychic 9-5 Club'; flitting from the beautifully bombed-out 'Blue Sunshine' to slinky, sensuous slow-jam 'Feels Like Love' which honestly lives up to its title, thru the hypnagogic sweetness of 'Soul Sleep' and the writhing pulses of 'Wet Dream', to the expansive, desolate peak of 'Love Is Distraction' and the lush ache of 'Chinatown Style'. Having spent the last few years on the peripheries, HTRK have made an album that deserves a huge audience without compromising any of the elements that made their music so compelling in the first place. High praise indeed for one of the finest new records we've heard this year. in boomkat

Killing Sound - $ixxx Harmonie$ Version

Killing Sound - $ixxx Harmonie$ Version (Blackest Ever Black) Comentários: Killing Sound version '$ixxxx Harmonie$' with serious tech-step jungle swerve for BEB. Separated from the 'Killing Sound' double-pack, the near-ambient original is extended and reinforced with dreadnaught jungle rhythms and possessed warehouse vibes for a properly altered, shark-eyed swerve. We'll be damned if it ain't the deadliest thing we've heard from either Vessel or El Kid, the Bristolians behind Killing Sound, and surely marks a massive highlight of BEB's darkside operations. Miss this at your peril. in boomkat

Actress - Xoul EP

The enigmatic London producer will release a surprise vinyl-only EP on his Werkdiscs label later this week.
While Darren Cunningham is rarely ever the most predictable of characters, we can always be certain that he will pepper his meaty album projects with intriguing 12″s that often stand up as incredible offerings in their own right. Both 2011′s Rainy Dub 12″ on Honest Jon’s and last year’s Silver Cloud contain some of the strangest material Actress has put out to date.
With the bleak sounds of Ghettoville album still fresh in our collective ears after its release earlier this year, it has been revealed that Cunningham’s next Actress record will take the form of a four-track, vinyl-only EP entitled Xoul, to be released on his Werkdiscs label. There’s little more information on the record besides a typically enigmatic tracklisting, and that it is expected to arrive within the next week, limited to 500 copies only. Werkdiscs will release Xoul on 12″ vinyl within the next week. via juno [Audio Samples]
Tracklisting:
A1. Xoul
A2. Xoul Dark Chamber
B1. Xoul Particles
B2. Pharoah Moon Rising

Ben Frost - A U R O R A

Ben Frost - A U R O R A (Mute) Comentários: Lauded sonic alchemist Ben Frost keens into full view with the terrifying and awe-inspiring 'Aurora', his first full length solo album since 'By The Throat' (2009), and his debut for Mute. Clearly a gifted producer - with a remarkable catalogue to prove it - Frost has, over the last decade or so, become increasingly sought-out for his sensitive yet calloused ear by numerous collaborators and like-minded artists such as Björk, Valgeir Sigurdsson, Lawrence English, and Tim Hecker. The latter three in particular are all close collaborators, sharing a focus on mining something affectively visceral and elemental from the twin spheres of electronic and acoustic sound. They all assisted Frost on 'Aurora', alongside Paul Corley, Daniel Rejmer and Paul Evans during recording sessions between Eastern DRC, EMPAC NYC and Reykjavik to galvanise its distressed visions of cataclysm and cosmic chaos. There are nine carefully wrought tracks, each a detailed microcosm within the same breathtaking constellation: entering with the buried-alive intensity of 'Flex', twisting with the blunt steppers force and concussive waves of 'Nolan' and the collapsing, quasi-speed drums of 'Secant', to billow outwards from megalithic structure of 'Venter' into psychoacoustic headspace of 'No Sorrowing', and the severely de-glazed, tectonic texturhythms of 'Sola Fide', to completely dissolve in the alien rave cacophony 'A Single Point Of Blinding Light'. For anyone with a functioning pair of ears it's a bracing, riveting experience not to be missed. in boomkat

Auscultation - Laces

Joel Shanahan’s gliding, atmospheric synth experiments have morphed through a few distinct forms over the last few years with the decayed luxury of his Golden Donna project. The latest release from the Madison, WI melody and groove enthusiast arrives at a particularly dream-drenched, cascading realm as Auscultation, a new project debuting on 1080p with this S/T cassette and digital release. 
The holographic, arpeggiated voyages of these new works are expectedly lush and retain as much of the insular, basement/bedroom-based zonage as they do way out, starry abstractions. Shanahan’s by now recognisable sense of the cosmic and unique and meticulous synthesis/sound design definitely wins out thanks to the deep and constant shroud of brightly hued ambience. 
Practically every layer of these 50 minutes worth of hybridized tracks is melodic; building gradually into slow, marbled washes on a track like “Ash” with particular patience, while the chords at the front of “Wave Rejection” oscillate with particular vigor and high-reaching emotive intent. Low, heavy bass and a series of texturally varied percussions finishes out each of these seven heavily layered, reverberant tracks for feelings both maze-like and expansive. 
Auscultation’s movements are guided by fragments of specific dance music genre ideals, but the overwhelmingly psychedelic sensations take over. Processing his own take on the decadence of house music as well as his passion for lush drone and noise results in hazy, labyrinthian heights that have echos of hypnogogic pop as much as italo.

BRIU HOMME SS ’14: “HUMAN INSTRUMENTALITY”


“It derives from a culmination of beliefs as a human entity,” says Jonathan Briu, the founder of the eponymous street couture label Briu Homme as he describes the inspiration behind his SS ’14 line. “Each individual look is a piece of instrumentality, leading up to the final stage of the project of human instrumentality” which fittingly acts as the name for the entire collection.


Debuting last year at NYFW with a smoky, powerful presence, the latest from Briu is officially launching in mid April—slightly elongated silhouettes matched by precisely proportioned layering and shirts that feature original art, the collection functions as an entity in itself, which wasn’t done by mistake.
You see, for Briu, Human instrumentality “is to create an existence where nobody exists singularly, but merely as part of the whole. In Instrumentality, the flaws in every living being would be complemented by the strengths in others.” But flaws within the line are few and far between - and as for complementing the line itself, Briu is releasing a short film called “Fractured: Light & Void,” directed by Maps Glover.
Eerie, dark, and twitchy, the black and white visuals are set to a voiceover that raises questions about structure, composure, and change. Watch the short below to bring about your own interpretation, follow Briu Homme on Twitter HERE, and be sure to check out its online shop soon to get your hands on the showcased pieces. via Nylon Guys Magazine

Beneath - Vobes EP

Beneath - Vobes EP (PAN) Comentários: Beneath pulls up to PAN with a super forward platter of UK bass/techno dreadnaughts. Combining archival rolige with up-to-the-minute missiles, PAN's 51st release operates at the crucial nexus of dubwise dancehall science and minimalist techno, pairing uniquely sculpted rhythm dynamics with a filigree feel for aerated electronic timbre. Most importantly it's aimed squarely at the 'floor with 20" rimmed riddims bound to bounce any stack, but it's his taste for spectral, holographic electronic modelling that really sets each track apart from the crowd. The roiling bass, freaky blips and EBM stabs of 'Bored 2' already have anthem status around these parts, finding the square root of bleep techno, hardcore and grime without ever feeling like  an exercise in nostalgia. 'Occupy' is icier, sinuous, rolling like some decelerated Optical Prototype contoured to a Funky/Techno coda, and 'One Blings' opens up fathoms of cyber-dread space between 'floor-skimming subs and tantalising, mercurial motifs that flit and dart like digickal duppies. However, 'Stress 1' is the deepest, the darkest, refining the Sheffield foundations of Richard H. Kirk and Rob Gordon, or the lessons of Digital Mystikz, for a masterful, mid-air gyration. Ultimately it's a shocker for the dancers and a tease for the heads, or simply a vital 12" for anyone who doesn't make such distinctions. in boomkat

DJ PUNISHER (Delroy Edwards) - Untitled

Freestyling, noisy dancefloor hammers from Delroy Edwards in DJ Punisher mode on LA Club Resource! Hot on the heels of his killer 'Teenage Tapes' mini-LP for The Death Of Rave, Delroy takes that album's aesthetic one step further with four tracks veering from schranzy pound to banking walls of distortion and dub. It boots up with a jagged acid noise assault coming off like Russell Haswell meets Gene Hunt on a furious whiskey session before descending into a pair of brutalist beat-offs oscillating between wild knob twisting and crushing, Prurient-style noise violence on the front; the unrelenting wall of noise on the flipside displays a more patient and equally devastating approach with the roiling expanse of modulated distortion beside a skeletal machine dub killah.

CUBE - Her Instrument


CUBE - Her Instrument (Digitalis) Rhythms can bring down a dilapidated building by using the sharpest edges and heaviest grade. Soothing voices are mechanized to remove any and all emotion. Bass is the throbbing in your head after drinking until 7 am and watching the sun rise with no recollection at all. Into the pit we disappear as surprising melodies emerge from static to envelope subterranean dancefloors inside claustrophobic loops. Longing presents itself in strategic ways, inside sullen tones that never seem to end, but once the exoskeleton is broken and the fleshy bits pour out, there's no place left to hide. "Her Instrument" cassete edit is out on Digitalis - physical format currently out of stock, only available on digital here.
