New track from CSS

leave a comment »

Here’s a new track from CSS’ upcoming album “Donkey,” courtesy of the band’s new web site. It’s called “Rat Is Dead (Rage)” and it moves in the same musical terrain as most of their earlier songs. So it doesn’t seem like it’s going to be some big shifts in musical orientation on the new record, which might as well be a good thing, since the debut kicked ass. However, the new and more polished production on display here, stand in an interesting relation to the dirty edge that identified CSS on their debut. The ambivalence it creates might lead to some fascinating results but it might also threaten to destroy the very essence of what made CSS’ debut so great.

Quiet Village – Silent Movie

leave a comment »

Silent Movie, the debut full-length from Quiet Village is a great record for a hard Monday morning, influenced by Italian film soundtracks, library music, disco edits, acid rock and vintage soul, they mix the unlikeliest elements – bluesy guitar, chamber strings, air-raid sirens, shuffling breakbeats, even flutes and seagull cries – into an hour-long, beautiful reverie. Just close your eyes and let your mind wander.

The creators, the british duo Matt Edwards (aka Radio Slave) and Joel Martin have succeeded in creating a awesome soundtrack to a cool movie not yet made. There’s a underlying freakiness running through the whole record, which really makes it stand out from the crowd.

Matmos – Supreme Balloon

leave a comment »

Supreme Balloon the new record from Matmos is scheduled for release on June 6th through Matador. This might be the most varied and fascinating Matmos record ever.

Drew Daniel and Martin C. Schmidt have collaborated with Lesser and Hrvatski (Keith Fullerton Whitman), as well as Marshall Allen (Sun Ra Arkestra) and minimalist composer Terry Riley to created something, which might be characterized as a more “light” cosmic pop record than their previous efforts and it’s made entirely from synthesizers! It’s completely devoid of voices, acoustic instruments, microphones, etc. Just a whole lot of different types of synthesizers, which they twist and turn into a colorful electronic sound odyssey.
