Buzzin’ Fly, best known for electronic dance music goes decidedly downtempo for it’s latest release. Towards Green is a guitar player from Tenerife whose real name is Anatol Rivero Brito. The press release compares his work to 80s guitar genius Durutti Column, and you can hear why.
Old friend of Melodica, David Dale, lives in Berkman house in Austin, Texas. Every year he puts up a collection of British musicians during the SXSW music event. The deal is you get to stay in the house as long as he can record some of your music. This year he hosted Skinny Lister. You can hear the results of their live session on the show. Here is the band with David and his pick up truck.
Here’s the Skinny blog about SXSW.
And here’s the video of the band performing the song.
SYNKRO ON APOLLO
Melodica favourite Joe Synkro is set to release a new EP, called Broken Promise, as the relaunch release for R&S offshoot Apollo. It’s typical Synkro, spacy, moody, atmospheric and generally rather good for playing out at sunsets and listening at home at dawn or dusk. Apollo was originally set up as the ambient arm of electronic dance label R&S and release work from Biosphere and Aphex Twin in it’s earlier incarnation.
