MAÏA wants to know what you’re seeking, thinking, drinking… because she’s just getting by, understanding that the world is a lie. Let the stars align and listen to her presence which is submerged in truth.

Do you have Sleepy Eyes?

‘Well within our very brains are submerged global tides, lunar moods from which no window however air tight can insulate us. Among us all the rhythms of the earth are closely linked to the rhythms of the brain. We humans may seem different… we are often unaware that we too have inherited these cycles… we have learned to time ourselves by clocks of our own making and to forget the beat of the earth….’

My mind has been looping on beats of the heart…. because of Skomes. Take Care of yours by looping these sweet sounds for your heartbeat.

Chet Faker – Melt feat. Kilo Kish by Chris

This is going to be all over the blogosphere but how could I resist. Local superstar Chet Faker (who skyrocketed to stardom with his amazing cover of Blackstreet’s No Diggity) teaming up with the totally dope Kilo Kish (check out K+ if you missed the boat on her).

I caught a bit of Chet Faker‘s set at Splendour in the Grass (major Aussie music festival) and his fan-base ranged from drunk teens to groovy middle-aged couples. A testament to the brilliant accessibility of his music.



Duke Westlake – Re. Turn by Chris

Duke Westlake’s Re. Turn is an impressive 30 tracks large. Ranging from chillout to electronica to straight up hip-hop, this album contains an impressive variety of different sounds and samples, worth hitting play and kicking back to.

Released by the soulful hip-hop centred Mello Music Group (Oddisee, Apollo Brown), the whole thing only costs an easy $7.50 to be yours to keep, or just stream it on Bandcamp above.



Leaks – I’m Glad You’re Still Here by Chris

Fuck the Radio Collective homeboy Leaks went quiet for a bit while travelling.

Good to have him back. This track gets my BRILLIANCE tag.

Evenings – Lo-Vélo by Chris

Can you believe it’s October already? only two more months and we’ll be celebrating New Years all over again, another batch of birthdays, ups and downs and what-nots to look forward to.

It was last year, about a month ago, Evenings released his Latley LP to the world via bandcamp. It’s a beautiful blend of shoegaze, trip-hop and what-not. I’ve only just discovered it now and I can not believe it didn’t sooner; it’s a stand-out album, full of playful experimentation and emotional input. Lo-Vélo is the fourth track on the album, coming right after a short-eight second interlude of found-sound. As a music blogger, you know I love to write- but every now and then it’s best to just shut up and let the music speak for itself- this is one of those times.

Check out the rest of the album here.

 



Sorrow – 1988 by Chris

It’s happening, I’m giving Sorrow the BRILLIANT tag of BRILLIANCE here on Fuck the Radio for his exquisitely amazing 1988. The dark, melancholic sounds and smooth, flowing nature of the track come together to create an emotionally stimulating peice of electronic music. Everything hits the nail on the head perfectly here, from the percussive sounds to the ambient swirls of noise that drift on overhead. Not many tracks get tagged brilliant, but this one has thoroughly earned it.

Sorrow – 1988



Ellie Herring – Touch Point by Chris

Why is it that electronic music seems to be a boys club? I can rattle off a few female artists, sure; Rainbow ChanTokimonsta, BoyfriendSleep ∞ Over… but when it comes down to it, the majority of guys out there producing beats are just that- guys!

Ellie Herring‘s atmospheric downtempo pieces brink on the experimental- a Heligoland era- Massive Attack- or eerie evil cousin of UNKLE. Something about Defect puts me in the mindset of a mouldy tunnel- the vocal line teeters precariously on the edge of ‘creepy’, yet manages to avoid being un-nerving. Touch Point is over a year-old now, off of a release on Racecar Productions. I feel it’s more accessible than her newer tracks, while staying true to her dark sound. It’s also available for free download off of her Soundcloud which is always a bonus. If you are feeling like something a little more comforting- her Boards of Canada (Damp Heart Mix) is nice to have on in the background (also on Soundcloud).



Wabz – Some Day by Chris

Some VERY deep sounds from Melbourne-based Wabz, it seems the bass is bottomless- extending to unfathomably distant depths. The percussive sounds are organic and satisfyingly crisp sounding.  There’s some amazing atmospheric work going on here, worth checking out.

The Wednesday Experiment – Play With Something by Chris

Something a little different, The Wednesday Experiment was formed in a whirlwind of creative excitement from the discovery of a  busker’s beautiful voice.

A unique blend of down-tempo and somewhat experimental sounds with Emily’s beautiful jazzy vocals causes The Wednesday Experiment  to play like a more accessible  and beautiful Massive Attack– Emily’s vocals are something really special, especially considering this recording is one of her first times singing into a microphone… before that she was just busking in Brunswick.
