A little heavier than our usual releases but this album from The Dirty Feel is so frickin awesome we just had to release it. Listen NOW ! Out this week…..
I just put together this compilation of some of the new music which has been exciting me recently. It all kind of sits together so I stole a name from somewhere and started a movement ! Hope you dig it;
What connects New York City’s “Superhuman Happiness” and London’s “Melt Yourself Down” ? These collectives of highly talented multi-instrumentalists are creating a transatlantic buzz with their hi-nrg-ethno-jazz-kraut-pop, or as Tummy Touch head honcho would put it – they are part of the Yes Wave.
Put simply Yes Wave is the opposite of No Wave – it’s a joyous and virtuosic coming together of musicians and audience. According to Kalmia Traver, lead singer with self confessed Yes Wave band Rubblebucket, “the music we’re playing is specifically designed to uplift people and make you feel free and happy and excited to be here”. Or, according to Whitehaus Family Records, one of the early adopters of the term, “Yes Wave music is the soundtrack for a NEW new deal. It is the soulful clatter of artistry and community convening and conspiring in living rooms everywhere”.
LOVE THIS ! The one and only Spiersy has released his own ode to Andy Murray.
Here are two recent releases on the songier side of life. I LOVE THES GUYS !! Check it out and BUY BUY BUY !!!
On the week of Aug 28th 1962, exactly 50 years ago, the BBC started regular stereo FM radio broadcasts. To celebrate this sonic milestone Tim “love” Lee has teamed up with fellow aural adventurers Tara Busch, Jack Dangers and Si Begg to bring you “Test Signals” – four sonic sketches of imagined test procedures and one glorious radiophonic collaboration between London, NYC, San Francisco and Los Angeles. A true testament to the golden age of experimental broadcasting.
The 7″ vinyl EP is strictly limited to 150 copies and comes with a full colour sleeve and a digital download of the “Against Remixes” album by Tim Love Lee featuring mixes by Jack Dangers, Sonic Boom, Depth Charge, Kirk Degiorgio and others.
