Some “new” for you…
Elika – No One Gets Lost from Always the Light
out March 5 on Saint Marie
Notes: Pre-release single features fuzzed out electronics balanced beautifully with textured ambience. Elika’s magical pair, Evagelia Maravelias and Brian Wenckebach, are back and energized after a successful tour with Asobi Seksu. Always the Light is a ‘loose concept album’ for fans of Lali Puna and M83.
Isidore – Reappearance from
Life Somewhere Else
out February 14 on Communicating Vessels
Notes: Spacey guitars trapped in a reverie, Reappearance is exactly what this is from Isidore, who have not released anything since their eponymous debut eight years ago. And yes, that’s Steve Kilbey from The Church on vocals. Lots of good, early buzz for this release.
Phenomenal Handclap Band – Following from Form & Control [via]
out early 2012 on Tummy Touch Records
Notes: The NYC-based disco act brings it again. This trippy, leisure suit number is sure to make you shake your thang.
