Yndi Ferreira aka Dream Koala is only 19 years old and just released the first Dream Koala EP, Odyssey, on September 23rd. Already with over 200,000 plays on Soundcloud and support from the likes of Rob Da Bank and Gilles Peterson, last week saw the video premiere for the title track’s gorgeous 3D video (created and directed by Adrien Peze and Albin Merle) that transplants the viewer to an alternate reality with a breathtaking landscape inspired by Terrence Malick’s film Tree of Life.

“Odyssey comes from the travels of Ulysses – his fear of never coming back home & never reaching his ambitions,” Yndi said of the EP’s title track. “It’s a track about deception and the fear of death, the fear of never accomplishing your goals. “

The new EP by Discuss is titled ‘Synesthetic Landscapes’ and it will be available September 17th on all digital stores. The album goes down a sensory path where it stimulates the listener to see the colors in each track. The songs create a perfect multi-sensory environment worthy of being enjoyed by everyone. Discuss wanted to demonstrate a unique relationship between color and sound.
Discuss, commonly known as Andres Ortiz-Ferrari, established himself with the self-titled album in 2006 experimenting with sounds that went from IDM to the more indie-rock and electro-pop. He settled himself in Pittsburgh before moving to Puerto Rico and created his own unique sound full of synthesizers, vocoders, warm beats and guest vocalists. The innovative electronic artist had a breakthrough in 2010 with his remix for the SUN GLITTERS track “The Wind Caresses Her Hair.”
After several independent releases, mini-tours and performances, Discuss took a time to rethink his music and develop a new sound. ‘Synesthetic Landscapes’ is the first EP under Sonovibe Records and it clearly demonstrates the ability of this artist to recreate and portray a colorful landscape with music.
Discuss has shared stage with Amon Tobin, Daedelus, Onra, Prefuse 73, School of Seven Bells, Flashbulb, The Books, Tokimonsta, Damn Funk, KRTS and Moreira.
Lowriders is proud to present this new release Yelleen by Ard Bit. After previous releases on Symbolic Interaction and Shipwrec and appearances on n5MD, Onrecords and Thin Consolation he finds a warm nest at Lowriders.
The Yelleen EP consists of 6 tracks. Cribble and Vixen were made in collaboration with Jor Mesin (part of the beatrotateproject). The two tracks are a step further away from the IDM straitjacket but it stays in the touch and feel of the latter. The transparency and openness is what gives it its unique character.
Cribble moves strongly into the dubby glitch sound with references to Pole and Plaid.
The detailing on Vixen is beautiful, hectic, Warp-ish. A massive blowing bass horn provides the lead and contrast.
Yelleen is something entirely different. It’s a warm, light and seductive roller. Perfect for the dancefloor To top it off Alphabets Heaven, Julien Mier and Strand are on the remix duties.
Alphabets Heaven combines sounds of the other tracks within the Yelleen setting. It treats us on a kitchensink feel, organic and housy.
Julien Mier takes the housy elements to the Chi-town freakness and makes you go all the footwork way.
Strand brings on some electro-funk boogie in the Skweee corner of madness. Analog twists with Yelleen details.
Autonomous Music releases Our Chimes/Our Piano,
a FREE digital 12″ from Marley Caroll,
on November 1, 2011
Pleased to announce that on Tuesday November 1, 2011 Marley Carroll will release Our Chimes/Our Piano, a digital 12”. Our Chimes/Our Piano will be available via Autonomous Music. This is the first release from Autonomous Music—who recently expanded beyond management and booking to include a free label–after Array Vol. 1, a compilation of Autonomous Music artists.
Marley Carroll is a prodigious multi-instrumentalist, producer and DJ from Asheville, North Carolina. The beginnings of his musicianship sprang from training in piano, percussion and scratch DJ technique. His 2007 debut album, Melanaster was the result of meticulous bedroom alchemy, sounding like a lost Radiohead LP submerged in ten feet of salt water. The smeared, melancholy pop songs tethered to abstract, electronic rhythms is what NPR called “gorgeously subdued glitch-pop”.
Recent buzz for Marley has been around his landmark abstract house remix of Emancipator’s “Bury Them Bones”. The track was included on Emancipator’s June 2011 release Remixes and became a favorite of the artist’s to play out on tour during summer 2011. Marley was invited to join the Beat Prodigies showcase at the 2011 Decibel Festival, alongside Shigeto, AraabMUZIK, and DJ Krush. While at Decibel Festival, it was announced that Marley would join the 2011 Moogfest lineup–as one of the only local Asheville musicians on the bill.
Taking some existing sketches in a spontaneous turn toward the direction of the “Bury Them Bones” remix, Our Chimes/Our Piano is a departure from Marley’s pop tendencies, for the purpose of exploring the house dynamic. With these purely instrumental tracks, he takes on a brighter sound. Relying on small gestures over long sequences and utilizing acoustic samples, Marley brings us a truly organic sound that is for fans of Four Tet, Caribou and Gold Panda
“Our Chimes” samples chimes from outside Marley’s home. It’s a warm and playful track that keeps you engaged with every small change.
“Our Piano” samples the piano in Marley’s childhood home. Delicate and grimy while still upbeat, the track is the perfect B-Side.
Sigma Chi Primavera, Fancy Mike’s follow up to last year’s Madison Square Gardner is coming out April 19 on King Deluxe Records.
It was very hard for us to choose one track from album for you today,thanx to King Deluxe,we choosed this, as one of our fav.tracks,if you like Autechre,you should check this refix too!
Stay tuned for album
