TOP 30: YUMI ZOUMA, SISTER CRYSTAL, JOEL FORD, VIET CONG AND LOWLY ENTER THE 30
Friday, 17 October 2014 00:00
 

Another five fat new entries this week led by New Zealand expatriates Yumi Zouma's gorgeously awkward to sublime new single, 'Alena' at 14. They can't put a foot wrong and it seems nor can they on most independent music blogs. Close behind at 15 is Chicago duo Sister Crystals, who we featured yesterday with their new single, 'Obsidian'. 

Joel Ford, one half of Ford & Lopatin and Ejecta has teamed up with the latter's Leanne Macomber to lavish upon us the stomping bass heavy electricity of 'Breathe'. When those tough, yet slimlined electronic elements are combined with McComber's spare and delicate vocal contribution, the result is pretty special. It's at 16.
 
At 22 enters Calgary art rock outfit Viet Cong, which features ex-Women members Matt Fliegel and Mike Wallace, with their new single, the spiky and spiralling and very Woman like 'Continental Shelf' while Copenhagen quintet Lowly complete the new tracks at 25 with 'Stones In The Water', which we featured last week.
 
Mr Twin Sister remains at number one with, 'In The House Of Yes' while Black Cab's Supermädchen rises all the way to 3.

SISTER CRYSTALS RELEASE NEW SINGLE
Wednesday, 15 October 2014 07:27
 

Chicago psych pop/rock duo Sister Crystals have release a nuanced, understated, yet pumping new single, 'Obsidian'. This follows up their self titled debut album of last year which, we must admit, was missed here. Having just given it a spin, the talented songcraft comes through as the duo clearly understand colour and shade, sonically painting subtle intricate textures but not shying away from letting go either. This hypnotic effort builds on this trajectory and sports a more fuller production and sound. New tracks are afoot for a second album for release next year too. Looking forward to that. Stream 'Obsidian' below.

LOWLY TO RELEASE CRASHING NEW SINGLE
Saturday, 11 October 2014 00:00
 

Aarhus hard to classify quintet Lowly will release a new single next month, 'Stones In The Water', a rollicking and restless affair combining a hard hitting beat and withering vocals with off kilter machine like guitars and noodling synths. It's out November 3 on Win-Win, One Little Indian's new imprint. Stream below.

TOP 30: MR TWIN SISTER HITS NUMBER ONE AS EYEDRESS, ETERNAL DEATH AND BANANA BEACH JOIN BLACK CAB AND KIASMOS
Friday, 10 October 2014 00:00
 

The day into night and gender defying transformation of sorts of New York outfit Twin Sister into Mr Twin Sister has been nothing short of a triumph in a general sense and in terms of our little Indie30 chart its represented by the fact that their patient and ultimately ultra sultry and smooth third single, 'In The House Of Yes' from their new self titled album ascends to number one this week. The move coincides with five new tracks led by massive debuts from the previously featured Melbourne outfit Black Cab and North Atlantic duo Kiasmos with the awe-inspiring motorik inspired 'Supermädchen' (see how fast 10 minutes go!) (10) and the perfect electronic undulation of 'Bent' (12) respectively.

Joining them is Manila producer Idris Vicuña's Eyedress project with the excellent downtempo oscillation of 'When I'm Gone' (18) featuring the vocals of London artist GEoRGiA, who herself released an impressive four track EP recently, Come In. This track is very much a departure from the stunning Chromatics like Top 100 track from last year,'Nature Trips'. Look out for his debut full length next southern hemisphere autumn.
 
Eternal Death have a dreamy new number, 'Fade' swirling around at present and we've debuted it at 25. Labrador Records head and past and present member of what seems like a thousand pop projects Johan Angergård has provided the perfect atmospheric platform for fellow Swede and collaborator Elin Berlin's heartfelt vocals to shine and the track allows more space for that to occur than the previously hard hitting singles 'Bullet' and 'Head'.
 
The final new entry comes from another Swedish pop band Banana Beach who we first featured last year with another Top 100 track 'Mobile Homes'. Their new single, the soaringly emotive and funky pop of 'A / E'. That enters at 27.
 
The three previously unfeatured tracks can be streamed below. All chart details here while all 30 are streaming in our Top 30 player.

KIASMOS TO DELIVER DEBUT ALBUM
Thursday, 09 October 2014 00:00
 

Kiasmos, the electronic project of Icelandic composer and musician Ólafur Arnalds and Faroese counterpart Janus Rasmussen are set to release their upcoming self titled debut album later this month. Despite forming in 2009, other projects got in the way of them being able to spend enough time together to work on anything more substantial than a single track at different times. Now, they deliver on their considerable talents in the form of eight tracks recorded recently but stemming from different points in time over that period, the titles of which indicate their journey of sonic manipulation and application. The new single from the album is the hypnotic and contemplative wonder, 'Bent'. Stream that below and pre-order the vinyl through Erased Tapes here

THE AISLERS SET RELEASE LAST OF REISSUE TRIO
Tuesday, 07 October 2014 00:00
 

Seminal turn of the century San Francisco indie pop outfit The Aislers Set will release the third tranche of their reissues set on vinyl this week. Formed by Amy Linton in 1997, through their eight year existence, they released three vital records. Slumberland Records reissued their 1998 debut record, Terrible Things Happen and 2000's The Last Match late last month and now Suicide Squeeze gets in on the act with 2003's How I Learned To Write Backwards. It's a timely reminder of just how critically important this band was and still is. Mining the C86 sound and putting their own unique spin on it, inclusive of punk, doo wop and surf c. longboard era influences, they wowed the critics prompting the late John Peel to write, 'Why are the Aislers Set better than any of the others?'. And I'd have to say, 'Well, I don't really know - they just sort of are.". And that's just it, there's almost an unspoken, inexplicable air of assuredness in the songwriting and delivery despite the often ramshackle end product, especially on the first record. Through the trajectory of these three records, The Aislers Set's musical journey, sonically and stylistically can be measured in spades. We've posted a track from each of the them below. The vinyl reissue of the first two albums can be found here while the third can be got at here.

BLACK CAB'S GAMES OF THE XXI OLYMPIAD
Monday, 06 October 2014 01:23
 

Veteran Melbourne electronic outfit Black Cab are set to release their new and third record next month, Games Of The XXI Olympiad. As with their previous albums, 2004's Altamont Diary and 2009's Call Signs, Andrew Coates and James Lee take a loose concept and create a music soundtrack of sorts around it. This time, it's the Montreal Olympics, the systemic doping program engineered by the German Democratic Republic and the subsequent super human feats performed by its athletes. Two tracks released during the five year period since the last record, 'Sexy Polizei' and 'Combat Boots'. are featured on the heavily motorik and synth inspired set and to mark the long player's release, Black Cab have released the new 10 minute opus 'Supermadchen' which you can stream below. Games Of The XXI Olympiad is out November 4. You can pre-order the CD here. Apparently, a vinyl release is in the pipeline, we certainly hope so.

1. Opening Ceremony
2. Supermädchen
3. Victorious
4. Performance Center Obertauern

KORALLREVEN'S SUBLIME SECOND COMING
Saturday, 04 October 2014 00:00
 

Swedish electronic duo Korallreven are set to return with their second record, the aptly titled Second Comin'. For those of you familiar with the work of Daniel Tjäder (Radio Dept.) and Marcus Joons, the new album will be a reassuring ride with its tropical and Balaeric disposition. However, Second Comin' represents a step forward for the duo in that new unpredictable elements have been added to their songwriting approach in terms of collectively, style, texture and structure. Yes, those familiar sun soaked synths and robust rhythms still abound but as tracks 'Spirit Away' and 'The Highest State of Grace' demonstrate, there is a certain club feel about as well as nods to global instrumentation. Clocking in at a tick under 50 minutes, this is also a substantially longer record than their first released back in 2011, An Album With Korallreven. And it's not a second too long.  

With lead track 'Death Is Not For Us' hitting the Top 30 this week, check out new single, 'Spirit Away' featuring the ethereal vocals of Stockholm artist China Yggström below. Fellow Swedes I Break Horses and Japanese experimentalist Keigo Oyamada (Cornelius) also feature, the latter on 'Try Anything Once' originally released as a single/EP last year. Second Comin' is out November 4 through Cascine (ignore who will be releasing it in Europe - that almost stopped us from featuring it). Grab the vinyl on pre-order here. This is an exceptional second record from Tjäder and Joons and arguably the best 50 minutes you'll spend with music this year. Highly, highly recommended.

TOP 30: GRAND COURRIERS, KORALLREVEN, THE LUXEMBOURG SIGNAL, POPULOUS & MINI DRESSES DEBUT
Friday, 03 October 2014 01:34
 

Big moves for Mr Twin Sister and Ariell Pink this week as both entered the top 10 with 'In The House Of Yes' (4) and 'Put Your Number In My Phone' (5) respectively. There are five new ones, all artists that we have featured over the past week except the debut at 21 of the first single from their upcoming second long player, 'Death Is Not For Us' from Swedish electronic pop trio Korallreven. We love these guys. Look out for a post in the next few days regards the new album and a new track as well.

Grand Courriers enter at 20 with 'Taking', The Luxembourg Signal are in at 23 with 'She Loves To Feel The Sun' and Populous teams up with Cuushe to deliver 'Fall' at 25. Mini Dresses complete the quartet with 'Other Ones' at 27.

Teengirl Fantasy's new track with Lafawndah moves up eight spots to 15 while last week's debut tracks by Bad Blocks, 'Lunar' and FKA Twigs 'Pendulum' both shot up six spots to 13 and 14. Lydia Ainsworth remains at number one with 'PSI' for the third week running.

All chart details can be found here while you can stream every track in the Top 30 player as per usual.

GRAND COURRIERS RETURN WITH TAKING
Thursday, 02 October 2014 00:00
 

We first featured Minneapolis duo Donald Christiaan Lawson and Brady Lundy's Grand Courriers project back in March and their first single 'Rejoice'. While we were very much impressed by that, we're even more so by their latest track 'Taking', a soaring, wide eyed, brass driven cinematic experience that, at a click over three minutes, is over all too quickly. Take a listen below and look our for their four track debut EP in November.
