Reighnbeau – ‘Fingertips’

Reighnbeau returns with a new collection of songs called ‘Fingertips‘, featuring ‘Beside’. The New Mexico soloist has crafted a series of warped and wonderful sketches. It’s not particularly long but works well as a single listen. Pretty sure Reighnbeau (aka Bryce Hample) rarely sleeps, every time I blink more tunes pop up. Always interesting.

Reighnbeau – ‘Hide’ EP

Reighnbeau constantly drops new tunes and 2017’s ‘Hide’ EP further cemented his impressive catalogue. The Albuquerque, New Mexico-based artist (Bryce Hample) teamed up with Madeline Johnston (Sister Grotto) for the recording and subsequent tour. Madeline’s voice is all over the hypnotic EP. Reighnbeau’s work uses electronic/ambient sounds with layered, glitchy styling. Fans of Ulrich Schnauss or Mark Peters should find something to like here.

Hample explains the creative process; “the title track started with my voice (me recording while improvising in my practice space) and developed fully when Madeline and I started rehearsing live for a tour. The other songs all grew out of sounds from this song. The synths on ‘Grey’ are my voice run through my guitar pedals.” If ‘Hide’ scrambles your eggs, check out Reighnbeau’s Bandcamp page because there’s plenty to discover.

J. Francis – ‘Last Minute’

j-francis-last-minute-cover

After sharing Kigo’s latest album, it only seems right to keep it in the family and post J. Francis‘ newie – ‘Last Minute’. The Queensland-based solo artist has crafted a lovely mood piece, very cinematic. BUT… that ending, what a tease! I want to hear how the next three minutes plays out. *throws toys* Get a copy here.

Channeling – ‘Self-titled’

channeling-self titled

Illuminated Paths have released the debut (self-titled) album by Channeling, and it’s a fantastic listen. I don’t often share ambient / experimental / drone, mainly because it’s not my strong suit, but this is just too good to pass up! It’s the work of New York’s Andrew Osterhoudt, who conjures soundscapes that should sit well with lovers of shoegaze or vaporwave. Channeling proves that synthesizers and reverbs make good friends! FFO: How To Disappear Completely, Survive or Boards Of Canada.

Tuath – ‘Existence Is Futile’

Umm, is this chilled psychedelia? Jazz? Space rock? Kinda… all of those and not at all! Tuath are here to smash your preconceptions. The band hail from Donegal in the Republic of Ireland, and their video for ‘Existence Is Futile’ is successfully evading any attempt at pigeon holing. Tuath are fresh from a spot at Dublin’s Reverberation Psych Fest alongside TwinKranes, Wild Rocket and the The Cosmic Dead. If this trippy creation flips your eggs then don’t sleep on their new EP ‘Existence Is Futile’ (out this month).
