Gossling

electropop // dream pop

Melbourne-based Helen Croome, better known by her stage-name Gossling, sings tales of love and heartache. Harvest Of Gold (2014) is a blend of whimsical harps, playful leftfield pop and disco glamour that brings to mind Danish electro-pop sirens Oh Land and Hannah Schneider. Yet it is Helen’s hypnotic voice that sets her apart. Her dreamy, eerie child-like delivery is distinct and perfectly layered with heart-warming musical arrangements.

Gorgeous and ambitious debut.

Lullatone

minimalist pop // electronic

Japan-based Lullatone’s latest EP Falling For Autumn (2013) is a soundtrack of adorable lap-pop (seriously, it’s a genre) tunes and minimalist arrangements for cold weather. The duo’s sound incorporates whimsical layers of samples, claps, whistling and toys that combine into delicate, meandering melodies, which will keep you warm and cozy. While you will have to trust us that the EP is best enjoyed as a coherent piece, here we only have two samples: “The Biggest Pile of Leaves You Have Ever Seen” and “Raindrops Plucking the Last Leaves from a Tree”.

For these cloudy autumn days.

Willy Moon

Rock & Roll // BeatsWilly Moon b/w

If the ’50s had sampling, New Zealand export Willy Moon would be a flashback. But at the age of 23, his brash mix of rock & roll’s early days and contemporary sampling turns the clock forward to a bold new charm. Before settling into his new home of London, UK, this autodidact ditched school at 16 and shaped his raw sounds with sojourns in Valencia, Morocco, and Berlin; evolving from hip-hop and club into sonic sledgehammers having sole-blistering effect. Willy’s supercharged collage of well-known samples, combined with his unique retro vocals, makes a fiercely catchy package, and his visual style looks equally well mastered in a slick ‘Rat Pack’ refined naughtiness.

Atu

electronic // post r&b

Designs similar to Atupele’s Pictures on Silence have intrigued me, but there is a quality in this 20 y/o’s Michigan Malawi purpose that lava lamps me to a greater plane – liquidating my conscious inside an orb of electronic bass and faint promiscuous echo. Slow down Koreless to a hibernating burrow then resurrect in soulful bounty.

Heavy beat patterns your mind spotless.

Mind Tree

electronica // glitch

Mitchell Nordine describes his Mind Tree outlet as “expressing the blissfulness of child-like naivety and nature, mixed with the beautiful and raw emotion connected to nostalgia. A journey of new perspective that subtly yet strongly guides thought and emotion.” Set sail on a glitchy, spacey, cinematic Melbourne sea.

Endless possibilities.
