PERTH Remix Album, Free Download!

Hidden Shoal Recordings is excited to announce the release of the freely downloadable Where’s My Dystopia? by Australian outfit perth, comprising remixes of tracks from the band’s acclaimed second album What’s Your Utopia? What’s most startling about Where’s My Dystopia? is not only how beautifully it complements the original album, but also how well the remixes work together as an integrated whole. This is a reimagined journey through the musical landscape of the original album rather than a collection of disparate snapshots. Where’s My Dystopia? includes the single ‘Drank, Kites And Tomorrow’ remixed by GUM (Tame Impala and Pond’s Jay Watson) alongside radical reworkings by Seams, Filter Beds, Water Graves, Mei Saraswati, Valerio Cosi, Usurper of Modern Medicine, No. 9, Ghost Drums and Mental Powers. perth’s second album What’s Your Utopia?, which forms the raw material for this new remix album, manages to meld psychedelic pop, folk-laced electronica and shoegaze into a beautifully cohesive statement – a tribute to the idea of a fond place, or utopia, quietly residing in ‘no place’, beyond ourselves. The band’s magic lies in their ability to refract the individual members’ unique sensibilities through an experimental lens; kaleidoscopic sound design is matched by the band’s songwriting dexterity throughout the album’s nine tracks. “Every part of this record coalesces together strangely, perfectly. And even among the towering, cinematic instrumentals perth still craft a weird sense of sparseness that makes this sound like a bunch of opiate-swilling krautrock kings running down a sand dune” – Who The Hell’s review of What’s Your Utopia? in their best of 2013 round-up Head over to Bandcamp to grab your...

Kramies Featured at Record, Rewind, Play

The Kramies and Jason Lytle collaboration, ‘Clocks Were All Broken’, and its beautiful new music video  has just received a glowing write up at the awesome Record, Rewind, Play blog, “Taken from Dutch-American singer and song-writer Kramies’ The Wooden Heart EP, and featuring the talents of the very excellent Jason Lytle, ‘Clocks Were All Broken’ is not so much a song as a dream fragment, slowly looping and pulsing. Round and round it goes, as you absorb its hidden textures, until suddenly its gone, at which point you’re aware that something is missing, just not quite sure what. I’d be forever happy if the song’s theme of time standing still – creating an eternally perfect moment like the trippy summer’s day at the beach – were somehow made real, its beautiful and dreamy psychedelia stretching out endlessly. As it is I have to make do with pressing repeat every four minutes, as indeed I have been doing for the last hour or so.” – Record, Rewind, Play Head over to Youtube to watch the music video.

New Slow Dancing Society Track – Free Download + Stream

‘A Clearing’ is the new single by US ambient artist Drew Sullivan (aka Slow Dancing Society), taken from his forthcoming sixth album The Cogent Sea. ‘A Clearing’ sets the scene beautifully for The Cogent Sea‘s masterfully handled journey into new territory for Drew Sullivan. Gently overlapping waves of synthesizer are suspended amid sustained tones, holding the listener transfixed before Sullivan’s trademark guitar sound gently brings the listener back down to earth, transformed. Slow Dancing Society’s sixth album The Cogent Sea is another absorbing progression in Drew Sullivan’s discography, introducing elements such as saxophone and old-school drum machine rhythms into the mix. The album explores some of Sullivan’s more overt ’80s influences while also drawing upon elements from across Slow Dancing Society’s stunning, critically acclaimed back catalogue. ‘A Clearing’ is available as a free download from Bandcamp. The Cogent Sea will see release on the 26th June 2014.

New Kramies + Jason Lytle Music Video – 'Clocks Were All Broken'

Hidden Shoal is excited to release the new video for Kramies’ gorgeous track ‘Clocks Were All Broken’ which features the instrumental and production talents of Jason Lytle (Grandaddy). The song’s theme of time standing still is rendered visually by experimental film-maker (and label manager) Cam Merton as a never-ending summer’s day at the beach. As the track’s aching synth melodies and voices echo and fracture, the blurred beachgoers begin to fade and multiply, receding into nothingness. Check the video out at YouTube and Vimeo. ‘Clocks Were All Broken’ is taken from Kramies’ brilliant 2013 EP The Wooden Heart, which features collaboration and production from Jason Lytle and Todd Tobias (Circus Devils,Robert Pollard, Guided By Voices). The EP is available now through Hidden Shoal. Related Items:Kramies - Everything The End (feat.
