CCCL: Modularity Chris Carter is the co-founder of the pioneering industrial group Throbbing Gristle; and he created some of the groups’ most rhythmic and melodic sounds on synths. Carter also has a scientific mind, where he designs and creates effects units and sound generators. His first solo album in 17 years unifies his interests as CCCL (Chris Carter's Chemistry Lessons) -- with insistent melodic patterns capturing the awe one feels at the infinite possibilities of science. "Modularity" is aural synthesis.
G Flip: About You Melbourne singer, producer, and multi-instrumentalist G Flip began her musical journey when her uncle gave her a drum kit at the age of 9. Later on, she supported herself by instructing drum and piano lessons to kids. But, it wasn’t until 2017 that she taught herself how to produce her own songs and find a voice. "About You" was recorded in a single day in her bedroom studio.
Damien Jurado: Allocate Damien Jurado's new album drops at the end of the week and is his first self-produced recording in a 20+year career. The elegant stripped-down ballad "Allocate" starts the record off.
Amber Mark: Love Me Right NYC songwriter, producer, and musician Amber Mark is undeniably a star on the rise. Raised across Europe and Asia, Mark weaves international styles into her self-produced EP, which serves as a musical eulogy to her late mother. We hear a confident powerful voice on "Love Me Right."
Durand Jones & The Indications: Smile Durand Jones found his way in front of his band The Indications while still in school. He and the band were inspired by dusty and obscure 45's so they set out to make a record steeped in deep and powerful grooves. Their self-titled debut is the result of Sunday evening recording sessions. A stand out track is the irresistible "Smile."
Mirella Cesa & Mr Pauer: Respira Ecuadorian singer-songwriter Mirella Cesa is best known as the "mother of Andipop" and here, she partners up with Venezuelan DJ Mr. Pauer for “Respira.” Fusing delicate Andean and Afro-Latin rhythms with Charango and indigenous drumming, this track has an enchanting melody.
Dream Wife: Fire Formed as part of an art school college project and named as a commentary on our objectification of women - UK trio Dream Wife have been turning heads. We feel their "Fire" both as a creative and destructive force.
Adrian Younge: Chasing Love Let's take a journey into spiritual jazz, funk, and dark-soul with LA-based composer/producer/arranger Adrian Younge. He loves the sound of analog and doesn't use samples (he is an entertainment law professor after all). Cinematic and highly orchestrated "Chasing Love" is as seductive as the title suggests.
