Sister Crayon, Hailing from Sacremento, have been around since 2010, performing under various names and line ups until releasing their debut in 2011 under this band name. Essentially a duo of Terra Lopez and Dani Fernandez, they create electronic, experimental soul sounds akin to Warpaint and they have extended their band to include keyboards and drums for their live shows but still maintain the sound of the band as just a duo.

I know, strictly speaking, this isn’t a ‘new discovery’ but Jamie xx releases his debut on June 1st. In Colour. Having heard his previous reworkings of Gil Scott Heron‘s last LP ‘I’m New Here’ (Jamie xx ended up reworking the entire album, resulting in the fantastic Gil Scott Heron & Jamie xx ‘We’re New Here’) I’m very excited to hear his first outing on his own in full!

2 great finds so I thought I’d put them in the same post! Both found at work again, so there are perks to working in retail! Attaque and George Fitzgerald actually have some similar qualities. Similar but noticabley different, a nice soft soulful voice with a gentle tech/house beat, bouncing melodies and the occaisional acoustic instrument (nice to hear in mainly computer produced tunes) Continue reading “A Double Post of Attaque & George Fitzgerald”
Recent new find is Trickfinger‘s self titled album (out now) by ex Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante. Was not really intending on giving this a listen after I heard Frusciante’s previous album (PBX Funicular Intaglio Zone) where he delved into electronic instruments and I wasn’t really that impressed. It hurt my ears if I’m honest but this was totally different. Continue reading “Trickfinger”
Origami Sound was the first net-label I stumbled upon. When I was looking into Volor Flex about his releases and background (being a new fan) I found he was on the label Dark Clover, a sub-label of Origami Sound, which is now home to 4 other imprints (Clubwerks, Canvas, Forza and Farver) and focuses on some pretty wide range eclectic electronic music. Like most of my other loved record labels (Warp is a great example here…) if you like one of the artists, it’s likely you will like a few more on the same label!

Right…this is how it’s gonna go down..
I’m starting this blog to document my musical discoveries, as I find them. It’s more of a reference for me to look back on later, to see what I found and when I found it. I’m not really promoting any particular style/genre of music, this is just my taste and a kind of record of what I’m liking at the moment. If anybody reading this likes it too…..cool!
