electronica track


A MEETING of delicate pop like minds: musician-producers David Tanton (aka Rhoda/Tender Spring), Éloi Le Blanc-Ringuette (aka Thomas White), and Lia Kurihara (aka LIA) met on the fertile Montréalais music scene in 2018, began to share and mesh ideas, and formed Afternoon Bike Ride – and listen up, friends; they’re an absolute delight of hazy, …

THOMAS KLEIN, otherwise drummer for the fine post- and krautrock rhythmic venturers Kriedler, also has a natty occasional sideline as Sølyst, wearing which hat he strides out with an album every year or three; August’s Spring will be his fourth album in eleven years, and collates together recordings he’s made over the past three.

WITH a series of British live dates coming up across the autumn – for details of those, pop down the page a little – the brilliant Ryan Lee West, aka Rival Consoles, has dropped a new summery slice of his characteristically chattering, atmospheric electronica; it’s entitled “Pulses Of Information”, and you can delight in it …

That skyline, the city so near, silhouetted, morphing as new towers grew from reinforced steel skeletons, informed and continues to inform her enthralling future …

THE self-styled and fully capitalised music, art and video project LARRY PINK THE HUMAN have dropped a new single ahead of a brace of upcoming live dates. “No Wrong No Right” is a spacious skitter of psych-lite guitar, spoken word stream, bass thrum and chanted, wistful yearn to a significant other to recognise what they …

KNOWN in the hallowed halls of dark electronica for his work as The Bug, King Midas Sound and others, when Kevin Richard Martin was offered a commission to write, record and perform a new score for a film of his choice by the Vooruit Arts Centre in Ghent, it’s perhaps not altogether a surprise that …

WE LOCKED the door; we waited. We waited, we combed the airwaves; we counted the days some more.
