Psychic Powers – Islands http://dublab.com/psychic-powers-islands/ http://dublab.com/psychic-powers-islands/#comments Thu, 10 Jul 2014 16:24:40 +0000 http://dublab.com/?p=54987 Read More »]]> Islands EP

Psychic Powers returns after a couple of years of silence with a four song EP named “Islands” The duo formed by Nik Brinkman (Junica, Over The Atlantic) and Alejandro Cohen (Pharaohs, Languis) is a collaboration that was born out of similar musical interests and a desire to create pop songs that sounded like the music they love. After their 2011 full length release “infinity”, a number of EPs on labels such as Geographic North and RCRD LBL, and remixes by RAC, and James Figurine, Psychic Powers “Islands” EP presents the band with renewed energies and the sound they are known for.

On this new release, the trans-Pacfic collaboration between Wellington, New Zealand and Los Angeles, returns to productions that are influenced by their love of the late 80s and early 90s pop and dance music. Synthesizers, guitars and drum machines dominate the instrumentation of this collection of songs, and adds the collaboration with D.Herrera (Suzanne Kraft) who played saxophone on the opening track “Slow Driver”

While Nik and Ale both keep busy with other projects, Psychic Powers remains an outlet were they both find a space to write and create songs for the dance floor and the arena concerts of a bygone era. With this in mind the new songs are not only references to the past but an exploration into a territory that is still worth exploring.

The “Islands” EP is out now via Bandcamp for streaming and downloading.

Out of a thicket of dark, woozy beats and synths, a beautiful voice comes to you cutting through the fog – it’s White Blush singing on “Ether,” an entrancing track from her latest EP, Love Parks. White Blush is the pseudonym of LA based artist Carol Rhyu. Originally from Chicago, Carol began playing in synth bands when she was in film school at AFI in LA, culminating in her launching her White Blush project in early 2013 with a self-titled cassette on Rok Lok Records.

Formed under the dark shadowy sway of LA palm trees, Amoureux is a bewitching female-led avant-rock duo that begins as a euphonic love story between bassist Holiday J and drummer Nicole Turley. With their debut EP Never Young As Tonight, Nicole and Holiday J decided on an unconventional approach; writing all songs on the instruments closest to their hearts – bass and drums, that’s it, the results are songs that edge on tribal and raw sounding, with a minimal approach that strips things to their basics.

The Düsseldorf duo BAR, consisting of Stabil Elite musician Lucas Croon and Christina Irrgang, is elegant, stylish and smooth, perfect soundtrack for neon lit lofts in some industrial neighborhood. This is also dance music to enjoy by the coast, in a villa in some island. “Welcome to BAR” is recorded, produced and emotionally arranged on various synthesizers, the drums, with film soundtrack samples, vocal collages and instruments such as the pocket piano, which Croon and Irrgang became aware of in Los Angeles through their acquaintance with Diva Dompé.

On James Conduit‘s debut release Two Lines Thick, color and luminescence peak through the cracks, vibrating up through the murk in moments of sudden seduction. The dimly-lit synth line of “Peak Distractions” subtly pulses through, shrouded in a heap of electro-obsessed blips and throbbing low-end. The rest of the EP phases through variations on this hypnotic and queasy abstract techno, referencing Warp’s earliest acid-soaked experimenters to Kassem Mosse’s modern basement beat obsessives. Out now on Geographic North.

Numero Group have done it again. This time they’ve gone after the hearts of the Southern Californian in everyone. Ned Doheny may not be a household name today but his influence certainly had it’s hand in your parents record collection – having played with the likes of Jackson Browne, David Crosby, Don Henley, Glenn Frey and so on. We’re happy to share here with you Ned’s tongue-in-cheek classic ‘Get It Up For Love’ originally released on his sophomore album ‘Hard Candy’ and now remastered and featured on Numero’s 2xlp ‘Separate Oceans.’

If you’re in Los Angeles Friday, May 09, do not miss a rare concert from Ned himself at The Virgil.

The announcement of a new record release on Sahel Sounds is always a cause for celebration. Balani Show Super Hits: Electronic Street Parties from Mali is an especially celebratory collection of true party music from Mali. These are the sounds of hi-NRG dance bashes brought from rumbling Malian street corners straight to your ears. This is surefire shake shake shake that will spark and quake. Click play now, dance around your room, then read on to get the official scoop on the Balani Show scene from Sahel Sounds. Bless these music explorers doing the good work!


Balani Show Super Hits is a compilation of popular music played at street parties in Mali. Drawing from across the past decade of Balani Shows, from innovators to contemporary stars of the scene, these are some of the Malian compositions in heavy rotation.

Colloquially known as “Balani Show,” these street parties began in the late 90s in the capital city of Bamako. Unable to afford Balafon musicians, DJs brought large sound systems and cassettes of pre-recorded music – both traditional Balafon music, as well as Kuduro and Coupé Decalé. As cassettes were replaced with CDJs, DJs began to incorporate their own remixes. Today, “Balani Show” continues to evolve. The parties have spawned an entirely new genre of music known as “Balani Show” or “Ambience”, composed by bedroom djs, remixers, rappers, and dance groups, creating high energy dance music.

Balani Show typifies urban music. It’s formed in the city and founded on trans-global influences. It’s a modern music built on new technologies, a phenomena that thrives on piracy. But like the Balani Show parties, it too pays homage to an ancient tradition. It reveals a different narrative of the old vs new – and suggests that maybe the only way to preserve something is by reinventing it, by keeping it modern and relevant in a faster world. – Sahel Sounds

Christopher Bissonnette has long been a staple of quiet listening at dublab. His 2008 record In Between Words has remained fixed in our playlists; its subtle complexity keeps us reaching for it again and again. His greatly anticipated new release Essays in Idleness strips itself of strategy. It is more a journey in tonality – a wonderful, transcendent listen that never loses intrigue in spite of its minimalism. The sort of record that delicately – and too quickly – flows in and out of your consciousness until the next artist in your playlist barges in with a world of noise. In a world of extremists, this record sits perfectly apart.

Tiago Miranda‘s music seems to have many sides. From the most innovative and tasteful dance tracks and remixes to the true and beautiful forms of experimentation, one can’t help but think “how does he do it?” This untitled track from the upcoming “Emotional Poverty” release has not time or space in music history, as much as this could be from a BBC audio lab in the 60s, it also belongs to the future, and the sounds that haven’t been made yet. Hurry and get this limited edition right away.

The Numero Group continues its eternal search for those buried gems that need to be dug up and presented to the public, the latest find is the “Warfaring Strangers: Darkscorch Canticles” compilation. Out of shrouded depths were summoned a horde of 16 bands whose sole release justified their entire rock & roll mythos. In this collection, medieval Bonham thunk and febrile Iommi guitar leads crowd out the bluesy Americana that foregrounded those bands, replacing hippie pastoralism with mythology, armored conflict, sorcery, and doom. These worried, warlike canticles occupy a minuscule niche in the American underground of self-released rock, but their appeal is more broad today than in any previous era.

Tinniens is the kaleidoscopic pairing of Landing‘s Aaron Snow and Daron Gardner working within a minimalist setup and a beachcomber psyche. Dub Guns, the group’s debut entry, boasts knack for precessing tightly-locked runs of concentric, mechanized loops while balancing a humanist, song -based approach. Limited to 100 copies on orange cassette, this is a new offering by Geographic North.

“Hang Around the Creases” is from “Go Big Shadow City” the fifth full-length from post-LA guitar ‘n drums ‘n buzz duo Alpine Decline, is an index, a cypher for the Beijing sound. Not “the Beijing sound” of their self-selected hometown contemporaries, whom they’re into but beyond — GBSC is the sound of Beijing itself, as heard from the outside. “Go Big Shadow City” was recorded in the underground parking garage studio of Beijing’s resident post-punk demigod, P.K.14’s Yang Haisong.

The Cyclist came to our attention through the fruits of our very own Matthewdavid’s honorable music outreach efforts. His Leaving Records label releases the greatest of these sonic discoveries. The Cyclist’s album, Bones in Motion, came as a collaborative release between Leaving Records & Stones Throw. The Cyclist dubs his music “Tape Throb,” which perfectly describes his full bloom flutter and fuzzed up warmth. To introduce “Mackabee,” a white label jam on his Soundcloud account, The Cyclist writes, “Don’t know why, but I love sampling singers that I really don’t like, I like the challenge.” You’ll definitely recognize the singer in question, and regardless of whether you dig the original sample source, we’re sure you’ll find the flipped version beautiful.


As a bonus treat for your eyes and ears here’s another side of The Cyclist in his Buz Ludzha guise from the Love Repetitive Rhythmics EP on All City.

This track by Suicide’s Martin Rev is part of a compilation from 1999 called “45 Seconds Of” The compilation consisted of 99 tracks, 45 seconds each. The sheer number of tracks by so many artists made it an exceptional release, however the real experience of this compilation is the number of ideas and sounds that play back to back in a collage style, making it irrelevant where one ends and the other one begins. A true collaborative experience that included among others Silver Apples, Chicks on Speed, Dntel, and Daedelus, “45 Seconds Of” was just now made available again for the first time since its release by Simballrec.

Simballrec released an obscure jam session that happened some time in 1998/99 and turned shortly after into a sort of electronic collage that made an intriguing hybrid of a release. The recordings took place in Buenos Aires with Ale and Marcos from Languis, plus two high school friends, Ramon and Daniel, while they were recording their LP “Last Frequency Presets” Ill Due Machina is definitely a one time project, but one can’t wonder what could have happened if this collaboration would’ve develop further.
