Review: Nicolas Jaar – Time for Us EP

Artist Name: Nicolas JaarTitle Name: Time for Us EPLabel: Wolf & Lamb/Clown & SunsetReviewed by: Rory O’Maley I’m not one to go weak at the knees, but over the last year, I’ve developed a mighty admiration for the unique style and choice productions flowing from Nicolas Jaar. Having descended so far down this particularly abyss, it’s taken me a while to decide which release […]

Lee Curtiss – Lunatic Fringe

Artist Name: Lee CurtissTitle Name: Lunatic FringeLabel: VisionquestReviewed by: Rory O’Maley There’s something about the combination of electronic music and smut that just works. Don’t get me wrong, the dulcet tones of LMFAO shit me as much as the next person, but when a track with a smooth bassline and filthy premise starts rolling across the speakers, you’d be hard pressed not to […]

Crush of the Day: Trust – ‘Shoom’

  Trust is a French political-rock band from the 80s. But it’s also a project-band from Robert Alfons, based in Toronto. ‘Shoom’ has been haunting me for a few days now – it is a pretty dark and heavy track, that doesn’t put you in the right mood but that you still want to listen again, and again. (That applies […]

Crush of the Day: Techy Romantics – ‘Escape’

Bagging the pleasure of opening for Foster the People on their first concert in Manila was chillelectro band, Techy Romantics.  Composed of Camille Besinga (vocals), Ryan Villena (guitar), and Dondi Virrey (rhythm and beats), the Pinoy Indie band definitely started the night right: getting everyone up on their feet, dancing and bopping their heads along to their infectious beats. With their impressive live […]

Spotlight on Urbanscapes: Pastel Lite

Describe Pastel Lite’s sound: We are an experimental band. We combine an eclectic mix of noise samples, electronica pop, shoegaze riffs, disco beats and as well as old school vocals. However, we have this habit of exploring new things and coming up with something different occasionally. So honestly, we could not really tell you what to expect from us. What […]

Proxy – Shut Up!

Artist Name: ProxyTitle Name: Shut Up!Label: Turbo RecordingsReviewed by: Rory O’Maley If you’re unfamiliar with Proxy, prepare to have your ears torn forcibly from your head in a brutal wave of electro fury. No exaggerations here, I’m not an aggressive person but Proxy’s screaming production and flat out nasty hooks will grab you, shake you up and refuse to let you go until you […]

Spotlight on Urbanscapes: DANGERDISKO

Describe DANGERDISKO’s sound: Robotron 5000: Our sound is an unholy mix of nu disco, 80’s new wave, indie dance and of course, house music. I’d say we’re definitely heavily influenced by the whole 80’s revival movement and our key sound has always leaned towards the iconic/cheesy 80s glam era. Big reverbed snares, big spacey synths and even bigger hooks has always […]

Trentemøller – The Trentemøller Chronicles

Artist Name: TrentemøllerTitle Name: The Trentemøller ChroniclesLabel: Audiomatique RecordingsReviewed by: Rory O’Maley If you’re a fan of production (and if you’re a fan of electronic music, you probably are), it really is criminal to go past Trentemøller. Now moving away from the techno prodigy label he was immediately stamped with, the Danish producer continually shows an understanding of structure and harmony […]

Dogblood – Next Order/Middle Finger

Artist Name: Dog BloodTitle Name: Next Order/Middle FingerLabel: Boysnoize Records/ OWSLA Reviewed by: Rory O’Maley I hope this doesn’t rub anyone the wrong way, but I am the complete opposite of a fan of the whole Skrillex movement. I understand its purpose and kinda its appeal but I still can’t see it as anything but a scattered and tacky way to carry big tunes. With […]
