Paper Dollhouse - Aeonflower


**Sterling dark pop and stark ambient noise somewhere between Grouper and Vatican Shadow. Edition of 500 with tracing paper insert and download code** There's some genuinely dark magick at work in Paper Dollhouse's debut LP for Glasgow's Night School Records. The London-based duo of Nina Bosnic and Astrud Steehouder are in possession/possessed by a gothic, oneiric spirit which has previously been revealed on Jane Weaver's Bird Records - who also present a cassette version of this LP - and alongside Magpahi for Devon Folklore Tapes Vol. IV. But this is arguably their most effective invocation to date. Guided by black light they offer 10 concentric circles crossing dimensions between occult folk, cinematic techno and crushing noise scapes, calling to mind comparisons with everyone from Vatican Shadow or Prurient to Ectoplasm Girls and Grouper, but maintaining their very own silhouette against that backdrop. In a word, it's spellbinding stuff and we reckon a lot of folk are going to fall for them. in boomkat

Cakes Da Killa - #IMF

Following his last full-length, The Eulogy, which was released through Mishka Records in 2013, Brooklyn-based MC Cakes Da Killa spent 2014 dropping two mixtapes under his Hunger Pangs series. Now, kicking off 2015 properly, Cakes comes alive with his EP #IMF, just in time for Valentine's Day. The EP features five tracks of thumping electronic instrumentation that blend with spaced out, near tribal elements, providing a proper platformula for Cakes' hypnotic tales of beauty, lust, and wavey late night vibes.
