New Music is brought to you weekly by Deadly Music!, which covers mostly indie/alternative music as well as electronica, ambient/modern classical, pop and anything really, really good.
Most tracks are available on a Soundcloud playlist, some of them on a Spotify playlist....both of which are embedded at the end of this post.
Public Service Broadcasting: “Gagarin”
“Gagarin” is the first track taken from Public Service Broadcasting’s upcoming second album The Race For Space.
A brassy, funk-heavy theme track for Yuri Gagarin, the track reveals a new more playful side to the duo.
With a 6-piece brass section and 5-piece string section in tow, “Gagarin” signals a broadening of Public Service Broadcasting’s sound.
Probably one of the grooviest things you’ve seen this year.
tigerthief: “cinnamon luck”
tigerthief (possibly from Portland, Oregon and all in lowercase) is a new act choosing to use media to add an element of mystery to their music.
Despite requests for more information, there is little known about tigerthief.
They are probably a duo and “cinnamon luck” was “written, recorded, shot, edited, mixed, mastered, and produced in 24 hours using a Sony TC-500A tape machine, a Canon 7D, two human brains, two cinnamon sticks, and one snow day.”
A mesmerizing, trippy track, you’ll love this if you go all misty-eyed at the thought of early Cocteau Twins.
Also RIYL if you like contemporary downtempo / shoegaze / gloomy pop acts like Hockeysmith and Casket Girls.
Listen to some outstanding new ambient tracks and music by Live Footage, To Destroy a City and Hollands, AFTER THE JUMP...
