The Bellingham, WA producer BeachesBeaches has been laying low for a little while, but now it looks like he is back and ready to go for 2012. Last year he self-released twoexcellent EP’s and a small handful of singles & remixes that got passed around on some of my favorite blogs.
Check out this brand new track and be on the lookout for more dopeness @ soundcloud & bandcamp.
How about some stunning B&W video of horses in the moonlight by Juan Iglesias for this beautiful new slow-burning popgaze song from mysterious Californian artists that I can still find next to nothing about, but whom I have blogged about before:
You can fly away forever, straight up to the top. Don’t fall behind. Catch that red beam of light and soar on through…
I’ve been following the Boston-based producer Jezus Million,every single step of the way. So far he’s only got a short five-track EP and a few singles to his name, but I can already tell this kid is going to be big in the very near future.
Don’t go sleepin’ on it. This is some next level shit.
I was lucky enough to see The Field and Walls play at Cyprus Avenue in Cork, Ireland late last week. Besides the amazing Wilco show at Tanglewood in the summer of 2007, I can’t remember seeing another live show that was such a goddamn party. Both groups’ sets were killer—both The Field and Walls stretched out their tracks to 10-15 minute marathons and in the process made the beats heavier, the grooves more dynamic and the ambient transitions more cosmically beautiful. The Field was even able to exceed my already very high expectations, which is saying something coming from a fervent fan of Axel Willner’s work for a few years now. The now 3-piece group of him/drummer/bassist works astonishingly well both live and in studio, which makes me wonder why he didn’t just make the transition years ago.
Not only that, but the venue and crowd were perfect as well. It’s a small venue with a low ceiling, but everyone gave each other plenty of space and completely lost themselves to the music, sometimes even having mini dance-offs with surrounding members of the audience. And the whole time I was doing the same, dancing my face off with a permanent ear-to-ear grin across my face. I’m not sure if his tour of the US is completed by this point, but if he comes around your area again I can’t recommend the experience highly enough.
