I’m seriously behind on so much amazing new music. Seriously, prepare your earholes to become plagued with wayyyyy too much new music that you’ve probably heard about before, but haven’t yet gone through the ‘RYAN SAAR APPRAISAL PROCESS’ quite yet. It’s kind of a big deal, or at least my Mum reckons so. Anyway, here’s a couple thumper tunes worth wrapping your ears around.
‘Cedoption’ is one of MJ’s newest songs, at least since last year’s record. I much prefer this kind of weird, Chemical-Brothers-ish style. The falsetto, clanging with the steel jungle percussion, the warping synths and general deep space vibe of the thing creates the sort of sense that Midnight Juggernauts are about to unleash some total mind fucks upon the world that we’re probably not ready for. Did everyone just shit themselves? Because they should have.
Milwaukee Banks-Rose Water (prod. by Kira)
Don’t look up Milwaukee Banks on Google, or at least chuck ‘band’ or ‘music’ on the end of there. Otherwise you’ll be hit with a laundry list of boring, as every fucking dead end capitalist temple/the place where happiness is handed out with no consequences comes up in the Milwaukee region.
However, if you heed the ‘band’/’music’ tag advice, you’ll get smacked with this pretty thrilling track, with some crazy similar vibes to Black Vanilla, Collarbones and FISHING. If that doesn’t cause tremors of excitement, then you’re probably paralysed with previous tremors of excitement. Laid back raps dealt over velvet synths and a R&B chorus that make you want to do crazy things, like ‘be social’ and ‘make friends’. Slow down Milwaukee Banks, you might just make me Mr Popular or something!
Feral Media Mixtape-Autumn EP (Angel Eyes, Lower Spectrum, Golden Blonde, Comatone)
I’ve posted about the previous Feral Media mixtapes a fair bit, and with a single look at the lineup on the current Autumn EP, it comes with little wonder. These guys have managed to pull off the impossible, and garner some new shit from the likes of Angel Eyes (!), Lower Spectrum (!), Golden Blonde (!) and Comatone (!). And yes, the exclamation marks are fucking necessary, especially when we’re dealing with electronic proteges like these artists! LISTEN TO THIS MUSIC! IT WILL MAKE YOU WEEP! The stuff here is insanely fucked up and strange and weird and synthetic and prosthetic and radiating and dangerous and holy shit, have you heard Angel Eyes’ contribution!?
Do yourself a favour, and cop this free download, before the apocalypse occurs and you never have the chance to experience this wonder.
