DYLAN ETTINGER – ‘LIFETIME OF ROMANCE’ CD/LP
longtime friend and NNF familia Mr. Ettinger returns with his first full-length in about a year and a half, and it’s an overt evolutionary step outside his usual discographical realm, into damaged new wave synthesizer worship. (scope the epic vid for the opening track, WINTERMUTE, if you havent already: http://vimeo.com/36334248). on LP and CD.
SAND CIRCLES – ‘MOTOR CITY’ CS
an effortlessly faded and inspired fusion of midnight synth moods and minimal warehouse drum machines with a subtle sci-fi noir/derelict metropolis vibe. have been obsessed with these tracks since we first heard them.
WHITE POPPY – ‘I HAD A DREAM’ CS
debut release by Vancouver artist Crystal Dorval is a mesmerizing opium den of lo-fi bass/drums rhythm tracks, spiraling guitar lines, and transfixed vocal raptures that float in the air like pollen. absorbing and uplifting.
