the sound is short and dry. like a fist colliding with leather or other flesh. but the repetition and reverberation transcend such violence and lead the listener to a heightened state by the time the parade is cancelled. a point of consideration. stick around because at least a few folks will still march and it could be a gorgeously lonely thing to witness

dj koze introduces sophia kennedy - stunning debut album by 26 years old wonderwoman sophia kennedy
elegant. melancholic. sometimes menacing. with smoldering piano melodies. desolately whistling organs. and a jaunty jaw s harp loop. kissed by the golden californian sun. or shrouded in gloomy. dreary fog: sophia kennedy is currently the most versatile composer in german pop music – not to mention the greatest singer. her debut album -sophia kennedy- reveals her as a dramatic romanti-cist and distanced diseuse. as a deft lyricist and master of melody. in her eleven songs. she travels from doo-wop to dubstep. from classic crooning to breathless r n b. from frank sinatra to beyoncé. her talent for songwriting is deeply rooted in history. yet it seeks nothing but the present: both historically versed and timelessly beautiful at the same time. all tracks have been produced by sophia kennedy and mense reents (who is known as being a member of die vögel. egoexpress. die goldenen zitronen).

salvation is found by identifying thesis and antithesis of a logically conceived duality as a receptive polarity which is then synthesized and expressed on a higher level. thereby practicing what is preached is the all-embracing love in the presence of the creator. the purest original state pre-dating the judgmental so called >fall of man< in unity with life itself is the principle of holiness and the root of inner peace. glory to g-d!

die klingt genau so. wie sie heißt: farbenprächtig. schwurbelig. episodenhaft und manchmal richtig schön beknackt. siriusmo nistet sich auch mit seinem dritten album wieder an seinem ganz eigenen plätzchen in der elektronischen musik ein. indem er alle möglichen stile und vorlieben durch seinen persönlichen filter schickt. notorisch tiefstapelt. maßlos übertreibt und immer auf dem punkt landet. siriusmo ist der vordenker. der gar keiner sein will. comic ist ein perfekt unperfektes selbstporträt und enthält in des meisters eigenen worten 14 bunte geschichten zum selbstausmalen. aber keine bange. diese geschichten erwachen von ganz allein zum leben. vergleiche sind überflüssig. nur einer drängt sich auf: sowohl melodische vintage-electro-romanzen wie dagoberta als auch fuchsteufelswilde arrangements wie bleat ziehen parallelen zu alten squarepusher-platten. statt jazz und jungle bestimmt bei moritz eben die berliner sozialisation den sound.

new long player from manchester s claro intelecto. entitled exhilarator . the 13 track album marks a return to action for the esteemed producer. a cinematic album of icy techno. weighty bass and poignant melody. from plaintive keys and slow motion drums awash with melody to corrugated industrial drums that don t let up. this is a diverse album in both mood and texture. moments of ambient celestial beauty exist next to breezy and summery grooves while skewed and sludgy acid sits next to serene underwater dub. stewart s mission to step outside his usual self has resulted in another landmark electronic album. killer release!
