Isabela Wolf – ‘Cormoran Bay’

ISABELA WOLF - 'CORMORAN BAY'

Isabela Wolf emailed me a link with lovely tunes but no info. In this spot I normally say where’s she’s from and what she does. But there’s nothing. In protest… I’ve used the wrong artwork (above). It’s from one of her other songs. Sorry, truth is I just liked the penguins. Have a listen to more of Isabela Wolf’s lovely instrumental creations over at Soundcloud!

Boards Of Canada – ‘Reach For The Dead’

BOARDS OF CANADA - 'REACH FOR THE DEAD'

Posting the new Boards Of Canada seems kinda pointless because, well, its already all over the interwebs, but… it is Boards Of Canada so – here we go! The Scottish duo have teased us for weeks with cryptic clues (or more accurately – clever marketing) surrounding their forthcoming album ‘Tomorrow’s Harvest’ (out June 10 via Warp). Now we can submerge our ears in the dark and cinematic first single ‘Reach For The Dead’! Pre-orders available here.

Sky Between Leaves – ‘O.B.E’

SKY BETWEEN LEAVES - 'O.B.E'

Gorgeous new tune from London’s Sky Between Leaves, this one will put you in a new place. Hopefully a better one! ‘O.B.E’ is an instrumental swoon that tip toes genres lines, but for what its worth the most common tags that stick are krautrock and dream pop. Sky Between Leaves released their debut, self-titled single back in 2011 (vinyl here) or snap up a freebie at Soundcloud. For those of you pondering their name – I quote, “The band’s name was taken from Jarvis Cocker’s narrative of being given glasses as a child and realizing that the holes in the trees were in fact the “sky between the leaves”. That enthralling imagery translates to the band’s sound and the elicited sentiment is simple yet poignant: it’s like awakening from a feverish dream to a wildly glittery reality.”

Public Transport – ‘Dark Days’

PUBLIC TRANSPORT - 'DARK DAYS'

“While it owes something to Boards of Canada for its sound, its closest inspiration was Lush’s ’92 album ‘Spooky’. I wanted to take their world of shimmering, skittering guitars and perfect-yet-unsettling chords and translate it into the world of synthesizers.” The words of Public Transport, aka Duncan Bailey, an electronic musician from Maine. His latest instrumental work ‘Dark Days‘ was released this week, check it out plus more here!
