Alexander Aultman

Slowcore jangle of excellence from Alexander Aultman.


The final track to be taken from Baile's 'From the Depths' EP which has been released today.


This new one from Copenhagen youths Communions puts me in mind of Wu Lyf doing Sally Cinammon. Hope they'd take that as a compliment because it very much is one.

Tiger Dare

The kind of quiet, candelit, ruminations at which The Clientele have excelled for years. This is from Broooklyn's Tiger Dare.

Cristobal and The Sea

The exotic sounds of a band which met in Loughborough but hail from Portugal, Spain and Corsica as well as the UK.

Adolescent & Lovepark

We've featured the remixing work of Adolescent before and we've featured Lovepark multiple times, most recently yesterday, so this is a marriage made in esoj heaven.


About the most intriguing thing you'll hear all year, this is taken from Mirage's debut LP co released by Domino imprint Weird World and Olde English Spelling Bee.

Triangle & Seed

Triangle & Seed - Stay for Love from Triangle & Seed on Vimeo.

A collective straddling the Atlantic being based in both Dublin and Toronto, Triangle & Seed have produced an ultra minimal gem in 'Stay For Love'.

Psychic Markers

Peopled by members of Still Corners, Grass House, Winter Drones & Great Ytene, Psychic Markers have the pedigree and happily the form to go with it.


We've featured all of the excellent releases produced by Sales so far and here is the final track making up their debut EP. 'Getting It On' has their trademark lazy charm in spades.


A second dose of seaside pop this time from Brooklyn's Coastgaard.

The Yetis

Yes its cliched but try resisting this bit of beach pop from The Yetis.

Luka has gone to work on Dream Koala's 'We can't be friends' with spectacularly blissful results.

Thursday, 18 September 2014


Swedish producer Weakkest may be considering taking out a restraining order against us, but four tracks in and we've posted each one (though one has mysteriously disappeared from Soundcloud now).

Here are 'Alright' and 'Appartenir'


Dystopian music, bleak vocal delivery, glorious stuff from Allegories.


Edifyingly odd composition from London producer Bewilderbeast.


A delectable chugger from Melbourne duo GL. Due for release on the Sydney label Plastic World at the end of the month.

New from Toronto's Absolutely Free.

Tip top indie pop from Stockholm's Chirping.


Gulf hail from Liverpool and make immediately endearing psych.

Monday, 15 September 2014


Solai is the solo project of Blonde Summer frontman Chris Pope. It's about as horizontal as music gets, delivered as if from the midst of an opiate induced fug.

Idea For A Film

No information on this band, other than that they come from Manchester and record in a disused Victorian Mill. Unsuprisingly the product of that environment is not bubblegum pop.


New Zealand born Melbourne resident Annemarie Duff follows up 'Raw Wave' with this spectral, whirring beauty.


The third cut from Weakkest we have featured recently. This one constitutes the most poppy of the lot, a sweet astral excursion.

lo se

On trusty Cascine imprint CSCN, Amsterdam marvel lo se has released his Fantasma EP. It has a daydreamy quality all of its own.


Gothenburg's School keep producing corkers.

Tuesday, 9 September 2014

Vesuvio Solo

The second Atelier Ciseaux we've posted in two days, this piece of quietly corrupt lounge disco represents another winner.


Marrying the tropes of euphoric house music and some more decidedly downtempo elements, this is Brooklyn based producer BAILE.

American Wrestlers

An ultra melodic update on literate 80's alternative songwriting from American Wrestlers, part of an LP of 8 track recordings.

The Radio Dept.

The first new Radio Dept. material in four years, timed to coincide with the Swedish election.

J Fernandez

I'm pretty sure J Fernandez has been listening to Stereolab, if he hasn't then he definitely should. In fact everyone should. Anyway this is a wonderful piece of out-there pop music.


This second single from Liverpool band Etches is at turns anthemic and redolent of something a little more leftfield.

Spooky Company

We've posted Morgan Samson's music before from his solo project Atlas Murphy. Now here he is with band mates as Spooky Company with the lead track from their 'Bully' EP.

Box of Wolves

Canadian producer Box of Wolves' contribution to the Aestas compilation from Stratford CT is this slice of balearic quality.
