Collarbones release free EP ‘Atlantis 2014’

Screen Shot 2014-06-02 at 1.40.11 pm

Sydney/Adelaide duo, Collarbones are probably making the most innovative RnB music in Australia at the moment. Following 2012’s fantastic Die Young LP, the pair have released the free, Atlantis 2014 EP. Like most of their work, it’s a layered and introverted soundscape that borrows from contemporary RnB and electronica. As the title suggests, Atlantis 2014 is a world of its own built on lush synths, pulsating beats and sparse melodies. Lead-vocalist Marcus Whale leads the way with his dulcet tones and runs while his partner in crime , Travis Cook, engulfs it in a hazy atmosphere. It’s pretty startling stuff.

Collarbones will take to Sydney’s Seymour centre as part of Vivid Festival on 6 June with Synergy Percussion. You can grab your tickets here.

Big Scary lead-singer Tom Iansek releases ‘Return To’

Screen Shot 2014-06-02 at 11.39.18 am

It seems half of Australian-duo Big Scary, Tom Iansek, has been a busy man. Aside from wrapping up a US tour with Big Scary, he’s just announced a new solo album under the moniker of #1 Dads. The album, About Face, has today been preceded by its first single, Return To. The song is a sparse, experimental track that layers with sporadic keys and a metronome back-beat. Iansek’s haunting vocal sits atop steering the song through an unpredictable yet enchanting melody. About Face will be released through Big Scary’s Pieater label on 8 August.

Hear the track over at FasterLouder.

Throwaway Thursday


tonyabbott

Another week and another brand new bag of toys. Unlike waiting around the bakery of an afternoon for leftover bread rolls, we’re bringing you the freshest of what we’ve found without even asking for three $9.99 instalments. This week, we’ve got a documentary from Eats Everything, D’Angelo in conversation and Kaytranada’s family project, amongst other things. So, put those coins away because they ain’t necessary here.

WATCH: Behind the Eaters: A documentary on super fans

It turns out British producer, Eats Everything, has quite the sense of humour. This mockumentary follows brilliant super fans (called ‘Eaters’) Brenda and Gwyn as they admit their obsession with the producer is probably ruining relationships. One could liken the Fandom surrounding Eats Everything in this film to One Direction. That said even one of the fans admits, “the thing about DJing is the music’s already done for you. You Just gotta press play”. It’s brilliantly dry humour and not too dissimilar to the brand of mockumentary we’re used to seeing from Chris Lilley.

WATCH: D’Angelo live in conversation

Last week US RnB singer, D’Angelo took to the stage to answer questions in front of 500 people as part of the Red Bull Academy Festival in New York. The singer hasn’t released an album in 15 years, however, speculation is building. Throughout the hour-long conversation, D’Angelo reminisced on his career and spoke about the recording process. He spoke of kicking everybody out of the recording studio when it’s time for him to lay his vocals, describing it as “trying to go deep, deep in the onion”.

LISTEN: Omarion- Fader Mix

You’d be forgiven for not immediately remembering who Omarion is. You’re not forgiven if you go here, and still don’t remember who he is. For those of you who still need some help, Omarion was part of boyband B2K before going it solo. He hasn’t been around for the better part of a decade, but he’s set to release his new album Sex Playlist. Yes, Sex Playlist. That aside, he’s thrown together a great mix for The Fader which includes Shlohmo, LL Cool J and Chrome Sparks. I guess you could consider it a, er, Sex Playlist.

LISTEN: The Celestics- Supreme Laziness

Montreal beatsmith Kaytranada has been making a name for himself with a handful of great originals and remixes but now he’s joined hands with his rapping brother as The Celestics. Supreme Laziness is their debut and it’s absolutely free. Aside from that great fact, it’s full of Kaytranada’s woozy production and his brother, Louie P’s quick-witted words.

LISTEN: Sable- Foolin’ (Basenji Remix)

Sydney producer Basenji has just unleashed his first official remix for WA newcomer Sable. Basenji has slowed down Foolin’ off Sable’s Feels So Good EP, adding breathing space and sparsity to the WA producer’s manic original. Still, it’s not short of trap-inspired drops to make sure you get down. WAY down.

Newcomer Kyan drops ‘Taking The City’

1487720_10152126548973514_210399300_o

RnB singer Kyan is quickly becoming an interns favourite. We were enamoured by his song, Shuttle, and now he’s just dropped a new track, Taking the City. Taking The City has been lifted from his forthcoming EP, Days In A Triangle, which is set to be released on 14 July. It sees Kyan further craft out his sonic identity with velvety, Frank Ocean-esque verses and beefed up chorus. All the while it tips its hat to iconic 80s rock ensuring the song screams into a mighty finish.

Four Tet Remixes Sia’s ‘Chandelier’

SIA_press-shot-1_low-res

It’s a hard job taking on one of the most euphoric pop songs of the year but British producer Four Tet has done a mighty job with Sia’s Chandelier. This time it seems Sia is not swinging from the Chandelier but being tossed into an alternate universe, one created by sparkling keys and a hip-hop inspired beat. Despite the song being turned on its head, Sia’s unbelievable chorus still sounds as huge as ever. Four Tet just adds some extra edge as if to take it from the hands of Commercial Radio and plop it in Triple J’s lap.
