listen: Taquwami, “Aj Mo Ka”

Tokyo’s bedroom producer Taquwami reveals his new single, “Aj Mo Ka” on his soundcloud. Following his previous “Kamakura”, the track seems inspired by Japanese traditional sound and its scape. When the first half of the track abruptly cuts into a mesmerizing left-field electronica, the track gains its full forth. An emotive and playful electronica that shares the vision with the likes of uncompromising artists such as Arca and Oneorthrix Point Never.

stream: Wilder Maker, “Everyday Crimes Against Objects of Desire, Vol I “

2014 has been a great year for American Folk-inspired music. Sun Kil Moon made an amazing come back while Sharon Van Etten and War On Drugs interpreted the heart of America with so much power and good intention. Now here is Wilder Maker, a Brooklyn-based musicians led by a singer songwriter Gabriel Birnbaum. Their new EP, Everyday Crimes Against Objects Of Desire Vol.1 is now available to purchase online, and to stream in its entirety. It is a a great collection of alternative folk tunes. It starts strong with “Hope Springs” with a great nod to Fleetwood Mac, but the true highlight for me, is “White Knuckled On The Wheel”. A powerful slow jam with emotions so strong, you actually can’t help but to listen in, immersing yourself to the surge of emotions in the lyrics.
