Gardland – ‘Improvisations’ LP
Following the great unspooling of 2013â€™s Syndrome Syndrome, Gardland and RVNG Intl. step back into the duo’s not-so-distant past with Improvisations, three live performances ripped from local Austrailan radio show, Spiral Sounds, in early 2012. The aural impetus behind the artists and label joining forces, this triptych of tone lashed tracks captures the duo in exhilarating, uninhibited form. Watch the fully fried video of “0214 Pt. 2”, ripped straight from the paranoid reality of Timothy D.
Blondes – ‘Rewire’
For their new Rewire EP, Blondes invite a crew of like-melted souls to remix selections from Swisher. Simian Mobile Disco, Huerco S., Claro Intelecto and Function redefine Sam and Zachâ€™s work in their respective expansive dance floor lexicons. Huerco S. regurgitates “Wire” into heaving voodooist rhythms, remarkably unwashed compared to the marbled detail of Claro Intelectoâ€™s sculptural sonics. Function reduces “Wire” into a meditative journey that flirts with the dancefloor, an attraction that catalyzes Simian Mobile Disco’s take on “Swisher” into more narrow and drum-focused terrain.
