Causers of This – Toro Y Moi

AOTW_TOROYMOI

Toro y Moi has always been a favorite of ours on the music team.  In 2009 he signed to Carpark Records. His album “Causers of This” (released in 2010) is a very personal release, venturing deep into production and sampling techniques.

LIMBO – Pell

AOTW_PELL

In 2014, Pell started making noise in the underground. He caught my attention with a uniquely New Orleans approach to Hip-Hop. I’ve had Queso stuck in my head since this LP dropped in the tail end of 2015.

Ambient Sleeping Pill 4  Various Artists 

AOTW_ASP

Fans of Kompakt’s Pop Ambient series or heavy droners like Stars of the Lid and Chihei Hatakeyama will find a lot to love on this latest comp from the Stereoscenic imprint. As advertised, it works fabulously as a sleep aid, or it could just as easily leave you hanging in hypnagogia, swimming in cello-y guitar wash, synth om’s, and your thoughts.

Asleep in Amber – Hilyard

AOTW_AIA

Hilyard’s latest original release on Stereoscenic evokes both warm colors, cold temperature, intimacy, and immensity all at once, the musical equivalent of seeing your breath in the winter or smelling wet evergreens. Orchestral swells, deep string patches, and field recordings ebb in and out of each other, at moments coalescing into one instrument only to dissolve and disappear at others. Absolutely gorgeous, verdant drone.

Locussolus – DJ Harvey

homepage_large-a4c4c104

From his residencies and bookings abroad, to his invite-only events in the U.S, DJ Harvey is a legendary figure in dance music. His album ’Locussolus’ is an epic mixture of sleazy, balearic disco, house and downtempo flavors.

-Robb Nastal, Editor


Kirisame – Gallery Six

AOTW_GallerySix

If his Stereoscenic label mates make music akin snow that’s long since fallen, Gallery Six’s music is the heavenly counterpart. Feels you’re hearing the snow form in the clouds and lightly drift to earth. Weightless, gleaming sonic poetry.
