THE GASLAMP KILLER - 'LAVENDER AM' (MEDITATION MIX)

Fantastic collection of meditative pieces, seamlessly put together to make the perfect wind-down mix - 'Lavender AM'




LA BASED GASLAMP KILLER, PART OF THE LOW END THEORY CLUB CREW, DROPPED THIS IMPRESSIVE FIVE TRACK MIX EARLIER THIS YEAR AFTER HE SUFFERED FROM AN ACCIDENT  WHILST RIDING HIS SCOOTER AND NEARLY DIED.

IT'S A TRULY BEAUTIFUL SELECTION, EACH PIECE IS A STORY, ALL SPANNING MORE THEN TEN MINUTES IN LENGTH. 

WORDS FROM THE CREATOR - "Lavender AM is the first time that I have ever released selections this close to my heart. This is a mix that represents the inner peace that I have found through my time of healing & meditation. I share it with you now, with the hope that it will bring you all the same peace that it has brought me."

EBONY BONES - 'BEHOLD A PALE HORSE' (LP)

EBONY BONES IS BACK AFTER A 4 YEAR HIATUS, LOUDER, FEARLESS AND MORE POWERFUL THAN EVER BEFORE!


I first saw London's Ebony Bones perform live at Brooklyn's 'Southpaw' back in 2009 in support of her debut record Bone of My Bones. She was an exceptional performer, fierce, colorful and exuded a  punk rock attitude that floored everyone in the place...the audience was thin, but she rocked that gig like a stadium performance a true professional. Apparently in a past life she was a theatre performer and worked in a soap opera until 2005, this woman knows how to work a room and fortunately has the pipes and writing skills to support her steez.

I was wondering what she has been up to over the last few years and was happy to see this new release from this most talented producer/artist.

Ebony Bones grew up in Brixton she was born into a Caribbean family, and spent her childhood working with her father in the market selling vinyl, a fine base that made for her eclectic musical education.

'Behold, a Pale Horse' is a solid gem of a record from start to finish, really...it blew my socks clean off and to be honest that's a lot considering I've not been too impressed with a lot of music out there at the minute (have you noticed a lull in my blog posts...yeah..well....nuff said about that!) 

The album is home to 12 tracks and has a super dark and apocalyptic vibe in sound and lyrical content...electronic beats rub shoulders with punk guitar riffs and don't even get me started on the samples!! The Morrissey cover (What Dfference Does It Make) featuring 'The New London Children's Choir' and 'The Warriors' cult classic film soundtrack sample kill!! Got to love this woman!! 

The release also sports guest appearances by Mechanical Elephant and The Mumbai Symphony Orchestra....wonderful sounds abound.

The Whole record was produced, written and arranged by Ebony Bones at YRF studios in Mumbai, India.

BENIN CITY - 'FIRES IN THE PARK' (LP)

BLOGGERTRONIX FAVE, BENIN CITY, RELEASE THEIR DEBUT FULL LENGTH 'FIRES IN THE PARK' & SUPPORT VIDEOS!



We've posted about London's 'Benin City' before, and can't get enough of their rootsy dance tunes as well as their more soulful talk record tunes. Their brand of self described 'Electro Brass' music, features afro rhythms and some slick spoken word styled spitting...think DELS or Ghostpoet

Their debut record 'Fires in the Park' was dropped this past summer and features 14 killer tracks...the videos in this post are for the albums 3 singles; 'Faithless', 'My Love' & 'Wha Gwan'.

Head over to the band's site to grab a free download of the single 'My Love', plus remixes by Dan Le Sac, Paper Tiger & NVR!

BROOKE SHARKEY - OUR WAYS (VIDEO)

BETTER LATE THEN NEVER...LONDON BASED BROOKE SHARKEY VIDEO AND LP LINK!



Brooke Sharkey dropped her lovely full length record 'One Dress' late last year...I've been listening to it on and off since then, and for some reason thought I had posted about her here on Bloggertronix, but it appears I was mistaken... My bad, because she really is great, and creates some wonderful gypsy, folk-blues music!

The above video was created by Mor Production's Marie Blanchet for the single 'Our ways', a song which features a more darker and solemn tone then much of Sharkey's other material. It's a soulful song with a playful cabaret vibe.

Sharkey grew up between England and France and sings in both languages, her voice is super unique and her control is impeccable. 

Busking is one of Sharkey's fave pass times and she spent just under a month this past summer busking around Provence. Right now she is back in London, Dalston, hankering down to record a new EP. 

She has a number of shows planned for early next year in London so head over to her Site for dates and venue listings.

SWISS BASED HOPEN RELEASES NEW ALBUM VIA 'EVEREST RECORDS'

ELECTRONIC EXPERIMENTAL ARTIST 'HOPEN' DROPS NEW FULL LENGTH, 'XXVI - SUN NOISES'



HOPEN (A.K.A Haiir, the second half of duo Starting Teeth and more commonly Childe Grangier) recently dropped this truly weird and wonderful record late last week on Bern based imprint 'Everest Records'. 

It features a collection of ten pieces that swing the gamut from hypnotic synth drone tracks, like that of  'Paloma Black Ordax', to tracks riddled with dance elements like'Cruising'. At times there are pieces that are almost cinematic in scope for example the haunting opening track 'Danse de la réalite de Dakar' and the Twin peaksesq 'Diamonds and Meat'. 

XXVI - Sun noises from ylf on Vimeo.

This is a dark and deep record no doubt, but there is a steady silver lining that runs throughout its core. It's a brighter and more consistent release then past HOPEN records, home to some really solid and exciting sound stories... 

Here's what the artist had to say about the release himself - "The album is about Montreal and Wakefield, Quebec, it’s about feeling blood circulating again in my veins. About Toronto, Port Louis, Bon Bassin, Africa and Phoenix beers, exploring Highways and roads. Driving through a blizzard, cruising in the Indian Ocean and laying down in the sun, listening to the silence caused by the heat… Imagining the noises of the sun. It’s about being in a taxi at 5am in Berlin alone and dreaming"
