lo-fi größe matt jones veröffentlicht erstes crescent album nach zehnjähriger pause! wenn musiker wie die indie-größe matt jones eine zehnjährige pause zwischen der veröffentlichung zweier alben einlegt, dann ist das ein qualitätssiegel! Ähnlich seiner bristoler fachkollegen flying saucer attack oder movietone arbeitet er nur dann an neuem material, wenn er es für richtig und wichtig hält. dieses selbstbewusstsein ist jedem ton der neun songs auf -resin pockets- anzuhören, dem ersten album seit der crescent-veröffentlichung -little waves-. es ist ein album geworden, das sich sein eigenes plätzchen im britischen outsider lo-fi-pop schafft. eine zusätzliche prise des anti-folk-feelings macht aus resin pockets ein werk voller zeitloser melodien, bewegender texte und einem ganz besonderen gefühl sommerlicher intimität.

since the release of their debut single in 2010, brightons :kinema: have seen themselves compared by the likes of the guardian and dummy to everyone from hot chip and phoenix, through to scritti politti and even wham! now after a series of sold out shows honing their sound they release >my beautiful machines<, the highlight of their live sets and the cause of many a stage invasion. sophisticated, soulful pop music with a sharp indie edge, this is an ep from a band on the cusp of stardom that has already earned plays on both radio 1 and xfm. taking the track to a whole new disco level are the remixes from swedens drop out orchestra which turn machines into an insanely funky 12 minute long live disco workout that has featured heavily in the sets of djs like tronik youth and justin robertson.
following the solid gold pop smash that was their debut 7 inch >circles<, south coast soul boys :kinema: return with their biggest and best song to date, >my beautiful machines<, a joyously upbeat love song to their synthesizers.
if the original of :kinema:s >my beautiful machines< is straight up classic pop then the remixes courtesy of swedens drop out orchestra, take the track off into disco heaven.

the act of shimmering is the act of leaving conscious thought behind. it s accepting what lies beyond the corporeal, transcending the physical, the soul is aware and the body, eyes, skin are distant empty casings. a clamorous, chaotic cacophony surrounds a beatific center. an endless assault of guitar, of noise that glistens, a poignant rigor. jannick schou, proprietor of tape loop drone, places himself within the tunnel of din to produce this profound work: an ethereal dream using nightmarish parts and images. black and grays generate vibrant innards. brightness is unearthed within the fetid mass and these six tracks immerse the listener into a raging sea to find a gentle undertow. furious outbursts emerge from simple, slow shivers. tremors of noise gather, reaching an elongated crescendo, becoming transformative, and shattering what form or structure was designed to contain such an outpouring of sound.
in seiner norwegischen heimat gilt das einar stray orchestra noch immer als ein geheimtipp im musikalischen underground. als vor drei jahren das debuetalbum chiaroscuro, damals noch unter dem namen einar stray - in norwegen erscheint, ist dies immerhin der startpunkt eines beindruckenden werdegangs.
the second release from dnaut is *sketches of a circuit* by craig sherrad. in the past, sherrad has worked on labels such as transmat. this ep kicks off with *we got extasy* - a solid 4/4 with stormy clouds over alien life forms. *hot pockets* is a clubby groove with fractured melodies and glassy lines. *energize* featuring riot baby, is a hip hop inspired, dusty beat with vocals. rough and sexy. *mercury electric* has bouncy beats, with a grubby bass line and layered synths. *sketches of a circuit* is a soupy bit of ambiance with sporadic gently tumbling drums, blissful chords and the slightest ripples of percussion.
not for nothing was dj kicks once named >the most important dj mix series ever< by dance music bible mixmag. in the 17 years since it started in 1995 with cj bollands scene-defining techno set, via landmark releases by kruder & dorfmeister, smith & mighty and kemistry & storm, its established a reputation for quality, forward-thinking mixes by dance musics big names. thats a statement that holds just as true for the last five years, which has seen uk synth poppers hot chip, new york retro-futurists the juan maclean and london dubstep icon kode 9, amongst many others, add their weight to the franchise. a big part of dj kicks idea is the exclusive track on each album: every artist doing dj kicks has to write and include a piece of music thats not available anywhere else. the second exclusives album, follow-up to the first collection released in 2006, collates all 14 of those dj kicks-only moments from the last five years. the result is as wide ranging and eclectic as the series itself.

the idea of remaking the rat packs infamous shaggy-dog story cum vegas heist thriller may have seemed ludicrous without a rat pack. but that didn t deter ever-inventive director steven soderbergh, who s again wisely teamed up with not only out of sight star george clooney but also that underrated project s irish-born club mixer turned scorer david holmes. the resulting soundtrack is a spunky, cross-cultural joyride that careens from perry como s -papa loves mambo- to the loopy hip-hop of handsome boy modeling schools -the projects-, while paying some gratifying visits to percy faith, arthur lyman, quincy jones, the terminally cool claude debussy and, of course, king elvis along the way. holmes own concoctions are as smartly retro-hip and seamless, slyly intertwining cool jazz-funk and smoky cine-muzak with some dance-floor grooves that keep the musical tension boiling. the sharp dialogue snippets that bubble throughout seem a quirky throwback to soundtracks gone by, a sometimes oversized olive in holmes inviting musical cocktail.
