Sleep ∞ Over – Romantic Streams by Chris

Following on from my recent posting trend of gorgeous dream-pop chicks I want to have babies with (see Steffaloo and Stumbleine); Stefanie Franciotti is the sole remaining member of Sleep ∞ Over, which was previously a trio. However this is a music blog and not a gossip-magazine, so I’m going to look past whatever it was that made former members Christa Palazzolo and Sarah Brown break away from the group and form their own duo Boy Friend (who, if you are interested; I’ve written about here).

Romantic Streams comes from the full length debut Forever, which is contains elements of equal-parts shoegaze and dream-pop… in-fact I could rant on forever using words like chillwave, glo-fi and noise-rock; but instead this time I’m going to let the music speak for itself for once.

I highly recommend you check out the album:

Have I not posted this yet!?

An experimental track from one of my fave record labels Ninja Tune, Amon Tobin‘s Foley Room is an ingenious creation that takes the theory of musique concrete to a new level. In fact, they even made a freakin’ documentary about how it was recorded because it’s so bad ass. Pick up the album, andtake a listen to the title track in the meantime.

Secret Knives are one of those amazing acid rock bands. A real pleasure to listen to. Really organic- if you love groups like Yeysayer, Tame Impala, Animal Collective and The XX then chances are you’ll love the sadly lesser known Secret Knives.

Autechre and The Hafler Trio – æ³o by Chris

Here’s a challenge dear reader. Tell me what music is.

Encyclopædia Britannica stated, “while there are no sounds that can be described as inherently unmusical, musicians in each culture have tended to restrict the range of sounds they will admit.”

Autechre push the boundaries with experimentation of the aural landscape, immerse yourself in æ³o and you’ll find yourself able to be moved emotionally by abstract noise. A slight increase of heart rate, soothing oceans of bass and ambiance, Autechre & The Hafler Trio are really able to take control of your body with sound. Perhaps this could be music in it’s most raw, pure form.

Not quite as easily accessible by our brains- we are too accustomed to the musical codes and conventions that most modern musicians adhere to- melody, basslines, tempo, rhythm do not need to exist for something to be music. Now is your chance to get up and really say FUCK THE RADIO because you are able to break through the musical limitations that have been drilled into you and experience music on a whole new level. æ³o is an exceptionally brilliant work of art- using your mind as the canvas and sound as their tool, allow Autechre & The Hafler Trio to move you.


The answer to the challenge? “Music is organised sound” – Edgar Varèse
