George Sarah, “Min and Sarah”
Just the relaxing, exuberant song I need right now. Exquisitely emotional, positive vibes and pure art. A talented Los Angeles electronic composer and multi-instrumentalist for 30 years, George Sarah has scored 28 episodes for the Discovery network. What a lovely, perfect pairing. He creates songs using a bank of synthesizers and drum machines as well as a trio of live strings. Gorgeous. The upcoming EP Min and Sarah [Flat Field Records] is out June 17, 2016.
David Trull, “Dark Magic”
Honest bluesy folk from St. Louis based indie singer-songwriter David Trull. Soulful vocals and melancholy arrangements effectively swirl about on this track from Trull’s debut album Coin Toss. For creative inspiration, Trull quit his office job to tackle the Camino de Santiago– an ancient 500 mile pilgrimage route across France and Spain. This song makes you want to wander about and admire your surroundings. To be in the moment.
Mophono, “VL Mono”
do you want to feel like you’re in a video game? distorted beats and persistent blips and beats mesmerize and pulsate on this simultaneously futuristic and retro release from Bay Area native Mophono. His Facebook page lists these genres: Dirt Wave, Thug Jazz, Riot Funk, Psyche Madness, Musique Concrète. I prefer the latter two.
Mophono’s EP M.O.3 is out on DJ Shadow’s Liquid Amber imprint.
Positive No, “Pedal Through”
indie rock. very 90s. sweet, wistful vocals and blurred guitar. Positive No is: songwriter/guitarist Kenny Powers; singer Tracy Wilson [90s post hardcore band Dahlia Seed]; bassist Sadie Powers [Richmond’s synth-pop group Dead Fame] and drummer James O’Neill [Snowy Owls, Plain Scrap]. debut album Glossa [Negative Fun / Little Black Cloud] out September 18th.
Mount Kimbie got the crowd dancing, jumping and bopping about at The Sinclair on Monday night. The sweet, low-key London electronica duo played a 50 minute set using a bevy of instruments along with music sequencers, samplers and synthesizers. Kai Campos and Dominic Maker in addition to tour drummer Tony Kus are currently on tour to support their second album Cold Spring Fault Less Youth [Warp Records]. While there’s not a lot of crowd interaction a gentle bliss washes over you. For this post-dubstep, ambient aural experience it’s a bonus to be among other fans and music lovers to fully appreciate it.
October 29: CSFLY Remixes [Warp Records], a new 12” of reworked tracks taken off this year’s Cold Spring Fault Less Youth, with remixes from DJ Koze, Kyle Hall and Lee Gamble.
