Our Man in Berlin – “Molière”

“Molière” from Our Man in Berlin is a fantastic electro-, synth-pop track that has hints of Bonobo, Volcano Choir, and POLIÇA. The Perth, Australia has only been releasing tracks for 18 months, yet they have an infectious and gorgeous sound. “Molière” is the first single from their forthcoming, sophomore EP, Spirit Down, and it is part of our Weekend Showcase […]

Programm – “Like the Sun” EP

Programm – “Like the Sun” EP

There’s something really special happening on Programm’s debut EP, Like the Sun. There are moments where you are taken back to 1970s Germany and the birth and height of krautrock or late-70s Manchester during the rise (and unfortunate fall) of Joy Division. Then there are moments of blissful delirium, as Programm returns to the present with a shoegaze-y, dream-pop tune. […]

Their earlier sound had them following the same path of a more famous synth-pop twosome, Phantogram. Lately, though, the duo of […]

Mundo Music: Electric Youth, “Innerworld”

Mundo Music: Electric Youth, “Innerworld”

I was remarking to my wife last week if any band or artist had, this year, produced a dreamier album than Dream Boat’s The Rose Explodes, which Rich reviewed last week.
