Back in October I found myself in London at the same time as Fielded, who was in town to perform with installation artist, Naama Tsabar. I took the opportunity to sit down with her for an interview, where we spoke about her new EP, Young Medusa, as well as displaying vulnerability through art, keeping things varied and learning to enjoy the act of collaborating.Continue reading “Fielded: Interview”
Always nice to see the arrival of new music from Fielded, as she blesses Backwoodz Studioz with her latest EP. Land o Pines is just one of the gems to be found on Young Medusa, as well as a fantastic cover of Mother Stands For Comfort, originally written by one of our shared musical heroes, Kate Bush. Land o Pines was produced by Willie Green and the EP is available now via all the usual spots.
Justus is the latest single to be released by Fielded, coinciding with the release of her Backwoodz Studioz debut. I’ve got a full review coming in The Wire next month, but for now get stuck into this visually arousing film and familiarise yourselves with an artist whose name you’re going to be hearing a lot more of. The track also features billy woods and the video was made by Alice Millar and Lauryn Siegel. The album, Demisexual Lovelace, is out now on all the usual platforms.
Surreal scenes in the new video from Stones Throw’s latest signing, Jerry Paper. The genre defying artist is due to release his Like A Baby album later in the year and Your Cocoon is the lead single. Production will come from Paper and Matty Tavares of Badbadnotgood. More info available at the Stones Throw store. The video was made by Steve Smith.
Very happy to have discovered the joy of Sonnymoon and their new song, Root. I feel dumb cos they have been around since 2009, by all accounts, but better late than never is always the motto. They are a trio – Dane Orr, J Hoard and Anna Wise – from Brooklyn who make wonderful experimental music, that is hard to categorise other than it strays into the left field and touches on the surreal in places from what I’ve listened to so far. Root is a great song, full of harmonies and a driving tribal-style drum beat and has definitely got me hooked. You can stream it below and you can download it on Bandcamp, where you can also find their older releases. Continue reading “Sonnymoon: Root”
More pigeon hole defying, dream-like pop from Ness Nite and her latest video for Tightrope. We had already been treated to the audio a few weeks ago, but now we have an equally enjoyable visual for the infectious track, with Mike Frey once again hitting the mark behind the boards. Pleased to announce that Ness’ album is also out now in all its glory and judging by the initial acclaim, it looks set to push her further into the limelight. You can stream Dream Girl below and you can buy digital/vinyl over on Bandcamp. Continue reading “Ness Nite: Tightrope (Video) + Album Stream”
Ness Nite continues to build the anticipation for her album, as she releases her new single, Watercolor Roses. The Dream Girl LP looks set to be a cornucopia of pleasures if the first batch of singles have been anything to go by, with Watercolor Roses keeping the trend going in all its wavy glory. You can stream the track below and keep an eye out for the album coming on 2 March on POW Recordings. Continue reading “Ness Nite: Watercolor Roses”
Ness Nite follows up her spellbinding song, Expectations, with an infectious little rhythm called Tightrope. While its predecessor was a more wavy affair, Tightrope picks up the tempo a little bit, thanks to Mike Frey’s production. The song premiered over on Vinyl Me Please, where Ness explained that it “is about doing what you need to do to stay up. When I wrote it, it was about a specific situation, but it has evolved with me. ” This is the next track to be taken from her upcoming debut LP, Dream Girl, which is due out on POW Recordings next year.
