Dream Pop: ◊awaymsg◊ – Seventeen

Seventeen is the new track from awaymsg. It a track full of ethereal dreamy pads, followed by a celestial bassline that shares the same feeling. In the top of that, we have those pop influenced vocals daring to sing in the same airy style, as if it was singing from the past, when awaymsg had seventeen years old. The track also features glimmering chromatic keys.

Art by American Ginseng. This is the type of music release that is pretty well illustrated and represented.

Seventeen is another non-pretentious release that is not going to disappoint. According to awaymsg probably the original project is lost, so it should be the definitive version. You can also stream it by Spotify.

Another track that is going to be featured in our Chilling in Eden Playlist:

New Release: Capiroto Records/LPascolatti – Prologue of an Insane World

They can kill a rose or two
Spring will come
Again…

The track was released last week by Capiroto Records. It is the last track composed by LPascolatti in his former Spiderhuis Studio in Rotterdam. The track mixes music composition in F#Minor together with lyrics inspired in the current misfortunes of global economic crisis and contemporary representative democracies, specially in his home-country Brazil.

The idea was to mix digital, organic and analogue synthesizers in a short-track that would express all the desolate feelings of “an insane world” we’ve been living in.

Downtempo: Abalone – Avery

It has been a while since we last posted a downtempo track following this style, but now we’re introducing Avery by Abalone (artistic name for Anders), artist from Denmark that composes “organic electronic music”. The track is part of his 6 tracks EP Beginnings that was recently released the 19th of April. This is downtempo electronic dance music to dream and dance

The EP falls into the same genre of artists such as Smok-Mon featured here before. The whole EP deserves attention, if you are a fan of this approach to electronic music, it starts with Grace, a entirely instrumental track that builds the feeling for what is coming on, while Avery works as a conclusion to what has been provided by Abalone during those more than 20min of music.

New Hip-Hop Release: Eamonn Nolan – Indigo Hydration

Amsterdam based Eamonn Nolan released today his debut album Indigo Hydration, this is hip hop and beat-making without much pretension, which shows out to be even more impressive than more pretensions works in the genre. Lyrically it contains tracks with a high sense of humour, such as Freshwater, while it still provides some experimentalism sonically. Kicks Hit Pavement is a track that talks about Amsterdam and life here. Another track that deserves attention is the instrumental Holy. Hip hop is a a flexible genre of music, that combines lyrical composition and beats, nothing more democratic than this, don’t expect the most experimental and complex post-rock riffs or synthesizer hallucination of Flying Lotus, but for sure this work is outstanding and deserves a place in this blog.

You can also stream it in Spotify:

As usual for other tracks featured here in the beatmaking genre, it was featured in our playlist Chillin in Eden.

Post-Rock/Trip-Hop: JUNODEF – Gold (Alternative Version)

“as women we know the importance of recognising each other’s work. In the music industry you actively have to search for women to cooperate with, or you are most likely to end up with a cis-male dominated team. That is why this project was run entirely by women. The music, script, and screenplay were written by women, and it was directed by, shot and edited by women.”

With this quotation I present you Gold by Swedish band Junodef.

Junodef from Lund, Sweden, makes an unique blend of post-rock, trip-hop, highly influenced by artists such as Chelsea Wolfe, Warpaint and PJ Harvey. They started in the Swedish underground scene and then relocated to London. The fact that they moved to London also impacted their sound, making them experiment even further with electronic music, such as trip-hop.

Their debut album Oceans came out in 2017, since then they’ve been busy with a big range of projects for 2018. Their track ‘Gold’ came out in Sweden with a thrilling music video, Romain Gavras style of violence, but a bit more mellow.

You can stream Junodef by Spotify:
