Russian Circles – ‘Deficit’

RUSSIAN CIRCLES - 'DEFICIT'

When it comes to post metal, I’m pretty clueless. But when it comes to Russian Circles, an exception must be made, ‘Deficit’ is just so damn awesome! The apocalyptic guitar tones work perfectly against one of the most impressive drum tracks I’ve heard this year – amazing work. Pick up Russian Circles new album ‘Memorial’ from October 29 through Sargent House.

Summer’s Kiss – ‘Summer’s Kiss’

SUMMER'S KISS - 'SUMMER'S KISS'

Summer’s Kiss has a fresh tune out this week. In fact, there’s three! The ambient / dream pop project from California has been crafting instrumental music since 2007. The self-titled release pairs airy pads with a jangly, delayed guitar line. While its not a downbeat affair, it’s still nice and chilled.

Fait – ‘Koto’

FAIT - 'KOTO'

Amazing new instrumental tune from Perth’s Elise Higgins. And wow, there’s some serious bottom end bass on ‘Koto’! The multi-instrumentalist is currently recording her debut EP under the moniker Fait and is teaming up with sound engineer Darren Lawson for the release, known for his work with Editors, The Verve, White Lies and most recently with My Bloody Valentine’s ‘MBV’.

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.
