iacon & nano神社 (✪㉨✪) – Spectre

Spectre is a series of hazy, narcotic vignettes about an out of body experience. Aptly titled in this way, it feels like slowly drifting between private spaces or intimate scenes (read: like a ghost), a sort of ambient sonic short film of hazy memories and introspection. A beautiful release from Chile’s No Problema Tapes.

It’s finally 2017, and the Earbits Music Team is back at it. Earbits has always been about discovering new and exciting music.

To commemorate a tremendous batch of new releases from ambient/drone label Stereoscenic Records, we’re not only letting them pretty much take over Album of the Week (as you may have already noticed), but you’ll also find a bunch of other music of theirs all over Earbits. Check our “New On” section for Wintergarden, an amazing 25:00 sound wash from Hilyard that’s makes a beautiful, sprawling complement to his Asleep in Amber release. Tomorrow, a Stereoscenic-only playlist in the Discovery section. Save it and have all of their latest releases in one list. And finally, if you find yourself having covered their catalog and want more, check our new “Serene” station in Mood & Activity, which music from Stereoscenic and a number of other great artists with a similar style and approach.

Causers of This – Toro Y Moi

We’re excited to report on the recent addition of Zenapolae to our catalog, a project the music team and myself have been working to bring you for a while now.  Zenapolae (pronounced “zen-OP’-oh-LEE”) is a netlabel focusing on experimental and avant-garde music, with a catalog that dates back nearly 20 years. Their entire collection, 144 releases from all over the world, is now available to listen to on Earbits as one big Special Collection and in rotation with our Avant Garde and Electronic sections. You might have also caught a playlist or two of theirs popping up in the last month or so, and in the weeks to come, they’ll be heavily featured in our New On & Editor’s Eclectic lists, Albums of the Week, as well in a few more of their own dedicated label feature playlists.

 

If you’re a fan of Brazilian music, you’ll immediately recognize more than a few giants on Far Out Recordings’ incredible roster, and this week, we’re featuring one of them: Joyce Moreno. Her latest effort, Cool, is a much anticipated collection of standards from the classic American songbook, reimagined and reinvigorated with her singular style and voice. Cool is one of our Albums of the Week this week, and we’re is really stoked to welcome her and Far Out to Earbits.

 

Take a listen here. I’m really into her to her languid, beautifully restrained take on Monk’s classic “‘Round Midnight,” and her bubbly Samba rework of Cole Porter’s “Let’s Do It.”

We have a serious treat for you. Earbits has the premier of a brand new track by Future Wave powerhouse, Night Drive. And, it’s amazing.

For everyone out there patiently awaiting the upcoming Night Drive album, here’s a dark electro-pop re-imagination of Led Zeppelin’s “Whole Lotta Love” paired with LCD Soundsystem’s “Too Much Love”. This is what you might expect if Jimmy Page and James Murphy had a child in a dystopian NYC landscape, circa 2041.
