- Amanda Palmer – ‘Voicemail For Jill’
Inhale deeply, hold your breath, and then forget you’re holding it. The feeling of stillness, the realization you’ve been holding your lungs in place for far longer than you meant to, is the emotive vibe ‘Voicemail For Jill’ expresses. Simplistic with only Palmer’s voice and a piano, the track details her own abortion as well as the pain of others abortions, in just over five minutes, during a time when women’s reproductive rights – human rights – are a pressing issue.
- Trupa Trupa – ‘Dream About‘

- Aesaire – ‘Flight‘
Hope you are ready for some spectacular, cinematic idm from Malaysia! Aesaire is bold enough to mix in this great piece of electronic music, apart from idm, synthwave, ambient and dubstep and makes the ‘Flight‘ a gem destined for repeated listening… As the press reads this track is about man’s early journeys above the clouds. our daily trips above the clouds…. Daydreaming!
- Kinestatics – ‘Till the End of the World’
Happy to feature the debut single off a debut EP. Which one? The group is called Kinestatics, a London-Berlin based electronica/trip hop duo by Steven Rutter (B12) and Karla Hajman (Stereochemistry). ‘Till the End of the World‘ will directly transport you to the Golden 90’s era, when trip-hop was hot, and massive acts like Portishead, Tricky and Massive Attack served the genre. However, Kinestatics sound still fresh and innovative and this richly textured gem is glowing with quality, so you better not miss it!
The song is taken off ‘Labyrinth EP‘ released on Firescope Records.
