Bonobo – No Reason ft. Nick Murphy (Official Music Video)

Electronic artist Bonobo took over the new releases last Friday with his sixth studio album Migration. From the release comes the lead single “No Reason” and its visual accompaniment. Featuring longtime friend and collaborator Nick Murphy (f.k.a. Chet Faker), “No Reason” is a powerful, yet familiar folktronica track that has the density of a true Bonobo hit, but with the light touch of Murphy’s vocals. Capturing the song’s creative heart, the music video takes the listener on a visual trip. Directed by Oscar Hudson, the video’s strange characteristics are rooted in themes of…

Almost Honey – IWU (Do You Really Wanna?) (Official Music Video)

(If you like: Robyn, Royksopp, Bat For Lashes)  Stina Janson and Josefin G Nilsson came together back in 2014 and formed the indietronica/electro-pop duo Almost Honey. With two years under their belts and a number of singles, the Stockholm pair have released their debut record That Weary Heart of Yours. From the sugar-coated album comes “IWU (Do You Really Wanna)”, the band’s third single filled with their layered, electronic energy.

Hologram Teen – Post-Apocalypteacakes / Tracksuit Minotaur 7″

Formerly part of British 90’s-alternative rock group Stereolab and a number of other electro-inspired groups since then, Morgane Lhote has more recently been working on new solo projects. Under the moniker Hologram Teen, Lhote has released a two-track 7″ this week, reaching back into electronica days of disco and house, and resurfacing with a haunting, yet danceable style. Side A features the single “Post-Apocalypteacakes” which combines together French house, Italian horror soundtrack, and early disco to create the devil’s dancing music. Maintaining the gothic, John Carpenter-esque vibe, “Tracksuit Minotaur” forces the listener into…

Barbarossa – Imager

3/5 James Mathé, a.k.a. Barbarossa, originally rooted his music in folk fashion, playing alongside the likes of Jose Gonzalez and Johnny Flynn. Instead, the London-based musician has gradually evolved into an experimental electronic musician, incorporating layers of artificial textures into his new sound. His latest work, Imager, is an alternating course of stimulating and tranquilizing patterns, but the reverberating, bewitching vocal style of Mathé turns the minimalist production style into a deeper, passionate collection. Mixing and matching of percussive tones compose the lingering foundation for the album with the opening…
