Turntable Films Takeover

It’s been two years since our favourite folk rock group from Kyoto, Turntable Films released their excellent debut album, Yellow Yesterday and on this year’s Record Store Day, they have released it on a vinyl record. To celebrate, Yosuke Inoue, who is the mastermind of the band, took over the blog to talk about his favourite songs of late. Jump the following link to check out the archive.

Turntable Films Takeover: Timber Timbre, “Hot Dreams”

Timber Timbre – Hot Dreams [Official Video] from Arts & Crafts on Vimeo.

Lately I like listening to a Soul music that is mellow. It is slightly influencing the band sound for our new songs. I was happy to find we seem to share the same spirit with the track from this Canadian band. Taylor Kirk’s voice is as sexy and matured as Shuichiro Moriyama. When I saw them for the first time, they were frightening like a devil. But on every album release, they sound more and more human, and I feel strangely moved.

Turntable Films Takeover: Beck, “Gimme”

Man, what a sense of rhythm! These twin drums keep up with their beats without unbalancing each other, taking a minimalist approach. And yet the track finishes up in two and a half minute! Not a lot of artists can wrap up a song like that. Hands down.

Turntable Films Takeover: Myriam Gendron, “Solace”

Myriam Gendron is a Canadian folk singer. This is nothing new and I know there are many old folk songs similar to this, but I feel her album can be a masterpiece that you want to keep it a secret. I am not sure if it’s her first release (maybe…) but it surely gratifies my desire to collect female singer songwriter’s debut albums.

Turntable Films Takeover: Woo, “1001 Decisions”

When I recommend music, I often say, “hey, this could be this year’s best release.” But this really should top the year-end list. The track is taken from Woo’s unreleased materials recorded from 70s to 90s. Beauty of it is that the scenery comes in before your eyes. Excellent.

listen: Brett, “Chalon”

Newly sign-ed to Cascine, D.C.’s pop group Brett is releasing their new LP in May 20. Their ambitious new track, “Chalon” is possibly the biggest pop track the label has to offer. They explore the sound that runs somewhere in between Coldplay and the Balearic touches of Air France. Can’t get enough of its chorus as well.

listen: Ryan Vail, “Grow”

Ireland’s electro duo Ryan Vail is up to something new and interesting. They are releasing their new EP Grow via Champion Sound in May, and here’s their new track, “Grow”. It’s soulful and minimal production burns slowly, but surely lit the long-lasting sparkling fire that is truly beautiful. Check out the Focus interview we did with them here.
