Incredible song, slowly building to climax.
Here is the making of the video for SicSak.
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).
Wonders Make Joy now have 4 compilations of known and up and coming artists for free download. Some personal favorites are Sleep Party People, When Saints Go Machine, Trentemøller and My Name Is Legion. There is a large amount of variety here and I am sure you will find more than few new favorite bands.
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.

I have been playing Touch by Holy Other in heavy rotation since I learned of him a day ago. So far the count is 27 and counting. Holy Other exist in close proximity to Burial and oOoOO with dark murky atmosphere, slow as molasses beats, blurry RnB vocals and a distant other-world sexuality.
Below is Touch from Holy Other’s forthcoming EP on Tri Angle:
It’s great to see Burial back, first the colab with Four Tet and Thom Yorke and now a 3 song E.P on Hyperdub. Below is NYC, a slow burning atmospheric tune featuring Burial’s signature vocals built up from twisted and altered female R&B vocals, muted and stuttering beats and a ton of atmosphere. Head over to hyperdub to buy it. I have heard it will only be available for a limited time so get it while you can.

The Weeknd (Abel Tesfaye) have now released the first proper release. You can download it free from the official website. The tracks are essentially R&B but each is tweaked just enough to let it easily float above the average R&B you normally hear on the radio. Check out the example below and then go grab the whole album for free.

I still don’t know much more about this band(producer?) than I did when I first heard The Weeknd, except that I have a steady stream of people looking for them daily. I’m not positive but I am pretty sure they go by The Weeknd rather than The Weekend (or else it is a typo) picked up and propagated by the innerwebs, that would suck.
So below are all of tracks I know of. If there are more tracks I have missed please link to them in the comments. If anyone has any show dates please add them to the comments so The Weeknd can make some ticket sales.

Arms & Sleepers have just released their 12th album, Nostalgia For The Absolute (preview and buy). Wordless, full of dark winter images, this release seems meant for quiet self-reflection while sipping scotch (Ardbeg 2010 for me today thanks). The tracks are short and fade in and out as if breathing gently. Although the tone is dark, it is never depressing (Think fresh snow and icicles rather than gray clouds and endless rain). This release is full of hope. Spring is just around the corner and each track gives just the slightest tease of the brighter days to come. So sit back, sip your favorite winter spirit and enjoy the samples below. If you follow the link above to the album you can sample the entire album.
