Video: When Saints Go Machine – Add Ends

When Saints Go Machine

Yesterday I posted about 4 free danish complication albums and one of those comps includes When Saints Go Machine which are getting  a very deserved amount of attention lately. So check out that post to get some free music. Then head over to When Saints Go machine’s Facebook page and click “Like”. When you do so you will get 3 free tracks from their E.P. Fail Forever. And if that isn’t enough you can go pre-order their upcoming album Konkylie (available June 21st).

For a sample of what the new album is like check out the video and mp3 after the jump

Album: Lapalux – Many Faces Out Of Focus EP

I just heard Lapalux (Soundcloud) this morning on indieshuffle.com in a post written by Elizabeth Walker and I could barely make it through the post before jumping over to iTunes and buying this E.P..  For those that like James Blake, Mount Kimbie, Holy Other and oOoOO  get ready to be excited. R&B vocals are warped and pushed into the ghostly realm, jazzy piano floats in and out, hip-hop beats are chopped and stutter sexually while electro pulses flirt. According to iTunes I have been playing Many Faces Out Of Focus for 7 hours, it all just blurs into this sexy, shimmery, haze that I never want to end.

Time, Patience, Everything

News: Arms and Sleepers Announce New Album Pre-Order

Arms & Sleepers have announced their next album The Organ Hearts is available for pre-order. The album will have less guitars and more electronics according to the release blurb:

Unlike Matador, the band’s sophomore effort, the new record features significantly less guitar and focuses more on electronics and drum-heavy compositions. Pulsing beats and driving synths replace the lush glockenspiels and melodicas of the previous album, while concise song structures and haunting melodies remain.

People that pre-order will also get an exclusive digital E.P. sometime this summer.

Lisbon from Nostalgia for the Absolute
