ARP
More

We met Alexis, the ARP guy, while we were living out in Oakland.  We were blown away by his synthesizer prowess when he opened for Kluster under the redwoods in Big Sur.  Been listening to his different and wistful new record a lot here in the shop.

Listen to High-Heeled Clouds

Bibio
À tout à l’heure 7″ (with unreleased B-side)

“Á tout á l’heure is proof that Bibio’s sound is sui generis and he’s capable of inspiring a few proteges of his own” Pitchfork (agreed!)

A1. À tout à l’heure
B1. Bequeath

Sin Fang
Flowers

Textured pop from Sindri (singer/writer for Seabear), produced by Alex Somers (Jonsi&Alex, Sigur Ros, Pascal Pinon producer).

From AMG: Though the term “folktronica” may have been much maligned by the early 2010s, the style’s mix of heartfelt singing and guitars and intricate electronics still resonated as long as it was in the right hands. Sindri Sigfússon’s work with Seabear and Sin Fang for Morr Music — one of the definitive folktronica labels — was among the most winsome and wistful, and Flowers offers some of his finest music yet.”

Sin Fang for all!  (includes digital download)
