Say Something (feat. Inga-Lill Aker) by Scrimshire.

Well this is the best Christmas present I could think of for all of you.  Say Something was the very first track written after Devil i think. It was done for a compilation put together by members of the Brownswood message board called FYE. Seek it out.

Free download.

Sludgy synths, plangent percussion and static washes of noise crescendo theatrically in ʻBodies’, the results swampy and warmly viscous, like decayed fruit. WIFE chops and processes his vocals into smudged, largely incomprehensible passages, with a textural rather than narrative effect. – Fact Mag

7 New tunes to peep this week

Long week. The trains finally started running on schedule again (#Sandy), another amazing fashion show happened, Obama got reelected, and it Nor’eastered.  Serenity is back, for the moment.  

Now for some new music

  

  • King Krule (aka Archy Marshall), also formerly known as bedroom musician Zoo Kid, is out with some more lo-fi goodness.  The best part about Archy’s voice in “Rock Bottom” is the imperfection, the scratchiness and lack of rhythm.  If you dig this, check out “Out Getting Ribs”. [File under Alernative.  Sounds like Jamie T, another UK bedroom musician that’s made it big]. 
  • New video “Feels Like We Only Go Backwards” from psychedelic rock group Tame Impala.  [File under Indie rock, I suppose.  Sounds like Deerhunter, Animal Collective, Real Estate etc.]
  • Producer Clams Casino touched this one:  ”Pull Me Down” (free download) by Mikky Ekko.  Tastes like a weekend leftover.  [File under Alernative Rock.  Sounds like Jason Mraz met Coldplay met hip hop.]
  • This liquid vibe “Substance” comes courtesy of producer Mystic Trip.  [File under Drum N Bass.  Sounds like LTJ Bukem.]
  • November Skies” sounds exactly liked it’s titled, cheerful yet toasty.  [File under Dance.  Sounds like Nick Warren, Reykjavik].  
  • Next level soundplate “Ghost Raid,” made for a heavy invasion.  [File under Dubstep.  Sounds like Harmonic 313].    
  • From the man that brought us “Love,” now brings us “Mating Dance.”  Beat romance.  [File under Beats.  Sounds like DJ Cam].

7 New tunes to peep this week

What a week.  I was one of the lucky Northeasterners to retain my power after Hurricane Sandy thanks to wires being built underground rather than on wooden toothpicks.  Please remember to donate to the Disaster Relief if you haven’t already.

    

Get your headphones on:

  • Alert, rude tune from a Rude Kid.  ”Saturday” is the standout track on the One Week album. [File under grime, dubstep.  Sounds like Wiley met Actress.]
  • Invisible’s “The Wall” gets covered by Anna Calvi.  [File under rock electronica.  Sounds like Thom Yorke meets Stateless.]
  • Haunting, downtempo, and beautiful.  Up and coming artist Guerre really does it right on “Rashad,” also a free download.  [File under electronic pop.  Sounds like James Blake.]
  • Photek has a new album KU:PALM.  ”Pyramids” (free download) is an interesting one.  Photek also produced a DJ Kicks early this year which featured the dope track “Levitation.”  [File under ambient, electronica.  Sounds like Photek, since he’s one of the electronic pioneers going back to his seminal album Modus Operandi in 1997.]      
  • touch of magic from UK producer Daniel Avery on his track “Water Jump.”  [File under one hell of a dance groove.  Sounds other another British electronic great, Faithless.]
  • Is Joey Bada$$ New York’s new Nas?  I’d say he’s definitely got a shot after a slew of well produced songs/videos including “Waves,” which he also performed live on the Jimmy Fallon Show.  [File under hip-hop/rap.  Sounds like some early 90s beats and rhymes, aka Nas, Mob Deep, etc.]
  • Minimalist dance floor material via Teen Daze on “By Love.”  [File under ambient electronica.  Sounds like Toro y Moi.]
