January Releases (new & revisited ideas)

I can say that January won’t be remembered as a memorable month for new releases but, as every month, something interesting always come out…

In this first section there are some comments about:

Alternative, Indie, Experimental Rock (Section 1)

Rage Against the Machine → Live at the Grand Olympic Auditorium

For the nostalgic fans of RATM (i am one of those) here is the last live concert and some original riffs. Rough.

Can → Landed

One of the most important and original alternative rock bands in the 70’s, which inspired many following bands (Sonic Youth are one of those). Dreamlike.

Ra Ra Riot → Beta Love

Third work for this american indie rock band. Recommended for a sunny sunday. Easy.

Yo La Tengo → Fade

Not properly a brand new band (13th LP) but they always like to change their style. Eclectic.

Blood Red Shoes → The Water EP

From UK, faster and involving rock. Scratched.

Green Day → Uno…Dos…Tre

They are not anymore the punk band which exploded in the 90’s turning more into a wide commercial rock. Some songs are cute but nothing more. Commercial.

Experimental Electronic, Trip-Hop, Indie Elctronic, Techno  (Section 2)

Pillowfight → Pillowfight

Trip-hop band that you should listen if you like Massive Attack, Portishead, Morcheeba or Zero 7 since it’s a mix of all of those. Atmospheric.

Gold Panda → Trust EP

A combination of DJ Shadow and Four Tet for this great artist coming from UK. Soothing.

Pantha du Prince & The Bell Laborathory→ Elements of Light

New project for this german techno producer, which left his draker sounds to collaborate with The Bell Laboratory in a more instrumental sound (reminding of Battles). Shimmering.

Orbital → Pusher OST

Cool soundtrack made by english Orbital. Didn’t watch the movie but enjoyed this LP. Pulsing.

Dubfire → A Transmission

Double LP collection from DJs of Dubfire’s record label (SCI+TEC). Elegant.

Deadmau5 → At Play vol.4

Fourth chapter of the compilation At Play of this great canadian artist. Intense.

Paco Osuna → Amigos Pt.2 EP

Spanish DJ, resident of Barcelona’s Club4, internationally known. Cool EP with good collaborations (like Sinisa Tamamovic). Minimaltech.
