Moriah Nixon’s vocals float over the steady drum and bass rhythm, keeping the listener nicely mesmerised until the end of the song. This track is somewhat reminiscent of the releases coming out on Fuzzybox records in the 90s. Check it out below and get the full release from Emerald and Doreen Records.

New Post has been published on http://styleofsound.com/anjou-st-kranky-fans-labradford/Anjou | S/T (KRANKY) for Fans of LabradfordThe culmination of four years writing and editing, Anjou marks the first collaboration between Labradfordʼs Robert Donne and Mark Nelson since the release of that groupʼs fixed:context LP.
Combining modular synthesis, Max/MSP programming and live instrumentation, Anjou deftly weaves noise with gentle ambience and melody with texture. Guitar, bass and Steven Hessʼ (Locrian, Fennesz, Pan American) live percussion give the eight pieces an immediacy and create a framework for the more abstract sounds of digital and analog synth programming.
The product of twenty plus years of friendship, Anjou is refined and challenging. An extension of the Labradford sound-world but no mere victory lap, Anjou represents Donne and Nelson stepping out and forward, their eyes firmly focusing on the future.

Firstly, they add a simple but elegant way of decorating your home or office space. Secondly, they act as a simple reminder of all the ingredients in particular cocktails, both through simple graphic imagery and through text, so you look like a cocktail pro when entertaining guests.  My favourite is the Old Fashioned. These posters are available from the Nick Barclay online shop for just 30 Australian dollars.

New Post has been published on http://styleofsound.com/bar-hopper-handbook/The Amusing Bar Hopper HandbookRecently came across a book called the Bar Hopper Handbook which is quite the amusing read to say the least. The premise of the book is simple:
“Anyone can go to a bar and get sloshed. But it takes a special skill set to dominate the dance floor, buddy up to the bartender, preside over the pool table, and sip free drinks all night, courtesy of brand-new best friends (a.k.a. everyone at the bar). Thankfully, the experts behind The Book of Beer Pong have compiled a comprehensive guide that will elevate bottom-dwelling bar-goers to the highest tier of the party hierarchy: the Bar Hopper.”
If you’ve got an hour to spare and want to be entertained then this book is for you.

New Post has been published on http://styleofsound.com/kitsune-trip-mode-minimix-jerry-bouthier/Kitsuné Trip Mode - MiniMix By Jerry BouthierThe groundbreaking Parisian label renowned for fusing music and fashion under one stylish roof welcomes back Jerry Bouthier for ‘Kitsuné Trip Mode’, a dj mix inspired by the escapists’ moods of the catwalk and supported by the prestigious online concept store Net-a-Porter.
The dj/producer behind the acclaimed Kitsuné cds BoomBox, Ponystep and Soleil series (the latter in partnership with boss Gildas) makes a leap forward by introducing a gorgeous, dreamlike slant to dj mixes. Music director of Vivienne Westwood’s labels for five years and collaborator of many designers including Matthew Williamson, Sibling, Roksanda Ilincic, Peter Jensen, Songzio or Kokon To Zai, Jerry’s honed a new craft by conceiving the soundtracks of the London, Paris and Milan catwalk shows of some of the most creative talents in fashion.
Blurring the lines between forward-thinking electronic music, indie grit and celestial soundtracks, ‘Kitsuné Trip Mode’ sprinkles whimsical and enchanted fantasies over intricate beats and haunting vocals, dipping deep into cinematic landscapes, fairy tale-like moods and ecstatic melodies, an evocative, almost psychedelic, excursion that’s both gentle and off-kilter.
Jerry concludes: “In an often harsh world I find it is one of music’s duties to offer a safe haven where feel good feelings can lift you up and take you places. I often think of the fashion shows’ soundtracks I work on as aural movies to let yourself go in and travel in the mind. As a result, for me, ‘Kitsuné Trip Mode’ is the perfect mix to groove and chill to with your loved one(s).”
Enjoy the mini-mix for Kitsuné Trip Mode before the full mix is released on the 8th September 2014.
