Not many musicians could ape Fricot

Dom Fricot – Echoes Vancouver native Dom Fricot wrote to us “I just put out a new music video for the track ECHOES. The video follows two mischievous youngsters in the streets of Kathmandu, Nepal. Shot and produced by Dwight Jantzi of Fishtank Films, this work is probably one of my favourite projects to be…

“CHESS” by ANIQO is no minor piece

ANIQO – CHESS “Chess” by ANIQO is a dark meditation on love and the games people play. Pared back, insistent and immediate, it inhabits the danger-zone between security and adventure and illustrates that less can be very much more when it comes to creating music that will live long in the memory. The track is…

There’s nothing finah than this tune from Bank Myna

Hello, Bank Myna are not messing about, their new song “Forest In My Head” is dark, monumental, portentous even. It talks to dreams, nightmares, confusion. It’s a rook with a crimson-red beak. I especially love the percussion, and above all the heaviness floats Maud’s vocal, a feather drifting through a coal-mine. Class. It’s the first…

Super World Interview Time: No Suits In Miami roll up their sleeves

This is No Suits In Miami’s third outing on SWIT. The band are from the southern Swedish town of Lund and consist of Michelle Dzgoeva, Olle Oscarsson, Hannes Ponzlid and Erik Lange.  Today we have their brilliantly downbeat, tuneful new single “Plain Sight”, plus we get a chance to interrogate the band. We have ways…

Super World Exclusive Time: Foreign Owl’s new song “Jump” takes flight

We said previously “mixing elements of René Magritte, Sparklehorse, Edward Lear and whatever you’re having yourself, Foreign Owl makes quite extraordinary sounds” and now new song “Jump” (produced by Rory Moore) confirms everything we thought previously and more. It’s a jumped-up catchy-groove, with wonderful vocals over(under?)laid with a  tale of divers taking a dangerous leap into…

Why do birds suddenly appear every time Kristal and Jonny Boy are near?

Kristal and Jonny Boy – In the Morning Swedish band Kristal and Jonny Boy are performers Kristina Hanses (vocals, lyrics and dance) and Jonny Eriksson (guitar, music and drum machine). ” In the Morning” is a sophisticated, delicious electronic rumination, suffused with worry and regret – listen once and it will be in your head…

Super World Interview Time: Attic Giant give us some head-space.

We featured “Blow” off Attic Giant’s excellent EP “Flush” (Better Call Rob) last year. They’ve since followed up with the even better “Light=Whatwesee”. The group is a Vienna-based musical project and five-piece band founded by singer-songwriter Daniel Tischler,  we were delighted to catch up with him to find out some more, and his grandmother provided a…

Is there life on Marsmobil?

Marsmobil – Shadows Of The Inner Light It’s my first time hearing Marsmobil, and what an introduction – “Shadows Of The Inner Light” is a masterclass in songcraft, combining electronics, sci-fi, prog and dance into a very alluring whole. The vocals with (I think) Amber Lin are sublime. The tune worms it’s way into your…

When you hear one Cinder Well you’ll want to hear Cinder eile.

Cinder Well – Insulation of the Silence There’s nothing like a dark, strange and wonderful song to shock you out of the mundanity of a Monday morning, not long after Christ has risen and there’s nothing to look forward to but the long stretch in the evenings, the creeping warmth of the churning seasons and…

Have Tuath been smoking the pipsissewa?

Tuath -I’m Sorry Young Man “It was the drugs Now everything is fucked” Late breaking news, very late acturally. How late it was how late (great book, read it). So, Tuath have (has?) a fantastic new EP “Youth” out since the beginning of March which I thought I’d posted already – it was the drugs,…
