The summer jam you haven’t heard yet, by a kid from Columbus, Ohio with an incredible voice. Bringing his innate talent to the table influenced by a family of jazz and soul musicians, Marcus’s debut single is sure to please, with it’s unexpected flip of the pop formula. Listen three times in a row for best results, then again on your way to the beach.
You forgot you missed this Australian band but The Cannanes are back and showing us why they deserve to be regarded as true innovators of indie pop. On this 12 inch EP, The Cannanes team up with Stephen Hermann (Explosion Robinson, Sukpatch) to create six entrancing songs. Comparisons are pretty useless but suffice it to say this is some of the band’s best work and there is no one on Planet Earth who wouldn’t find something to like here. As one review put it “Gibson and O’Neil strike gold six times over!”
Anthem Facility is a recording project featuring vocals by Young Magic’s Melati Malay. Produced by Stephen Hermann, this lazy pop EP has a bit of of Mazzy Star and some lazy guitar hooks. Add some synthesizer for a wall of sound feel on a few tracks. Strictly a studio effort Trace is an EP that plays like a Long Player.
A collection of remixes featuring UK reggae producer Richie Phoe, who is sometimes referred to as “Brighton’s Lee Scratch Perry.” Keeping in the dub tradition, Dr. Version steps to the controls and remixes Richie’s Rhythms. Yes, a few of these are remixes of remixes. Tthe space echo and reverb boxes sure got a workout on this one. This is definitely a new take on the The Cannanes’ pop sensibilities. Wear headphones for full appreciation.
Remix EP featuring Andres (KDJ/Mahogony Music), Datachi (Planet Mu), Brian Burnside (Deepa Grooves), Evan Stalker (On the Prowl), and Chowtime. Take Trace to the dancefloor with this collection of remixes.
