fans of horror films are familiar with cliche, in what we've seen and heard. i've been seeking out horror since i was about 9 or 10 years old, and eventually when a film like It Follows comes along you have to stop and marvel at how it's held together - by the elements we're used to, but also by something new. if you've seen the movie, you quickly realize that besides the great writing and everything, it has one of the most unique soundtracks in a horror film ever. this is thanks to Disasterpeace, composer and producer based out of Berkeley. his portfolio also contains the legendary Fez soundtrack, amongst others. so the honour is all mine today to help put some more people onto his patient, beautiful, and sometimes harrowing work.
words from @cutmylips I started make this song straight after my trip to old castle with my significant other. That was great time, very impressive landscapes and deep feelings. I was really inspired with my life flow and expressed all this things in this tune. When the sketch was half ready I decided to ask lontalius to join me and fill the tune with his voice and words. I hope everyone gets something bewitching and inspiring.
it's been exciting to watch mark redito (formerly known as Spazzkid) develop as an artist - one who shows equal interest in any of the emotions he can express musically. '3am apologies' feels like a step in a new direction as a great songwriter first and foremost. under the spazzkid moniker he's been able to walk the line as an exciting live performer, creative remixer, but i'm interested in where mark redito will take us next. i'll listen to this song on repeat until then.
this song was inspired by a song called never understand by the jesus and mary chain and the dream. writing this song was hard for me because i used to never really write anything that was confident lyric wise but nonetheless i was able to write one and commemorated it to a girl i once dated and was merely inspired by spending lonely nights at underground clubs with the same old breakdown. hoping for the best and thanks ryan
Monkey With No Tail! is four warm, new tracks from Cape Town producer/songwriter Seferino. his work is dizzy and catchy - filled with organic sounds, following unexpected formulas while maintaining a clear love for pop. enjoy a stranger summer with Seferino. Visit Seferino's Room
note from ryan: Every song Montreal artist Robert Robert sent me was amazing - it was very difficult to not do the one with the acoustic guitar drop - but this one feels just right. there's so much imagination in these 4 mins, i feel like it was co-produced with a 6-year-old in between rounds of Clayfighter.
Lux is named after this huge crazy club in lisbon! I used to go ther when i lived there! It is a crazy contrast to this old trashed city, and i Think the track shows that kinda feeling!you know when someone asks how you're doing and you can't help but give a super honest answer?? this song is about the highs and lows of that. anna (merival) & i wanna give mad props to joel from air france, darren from the avalanches and torq from stars for their assistance with this one ❤️ and of course a HUGE thank you to ryan :)))))))) love u all
NAKED it is not always as scary as it seems to be naked
the anxiety, as the pieces of personality drop one by one from your body. the fear, of being bigger and yet smaller than the others thought that you were. the guilt, of not being as cool as you fitted out.
but as we dress in the suit of nature free from cover free from us we realize that we are all equal and that we can all be our true selves
because, it is not always as scary as it seems to be naked.
I'm imagining this rare kind of argument, heated, but with someone you respect or maybe even love, where you can both really get into it, get to the root of the problem, learn something, leave with more than you brought.
this song was initially intended for my LP for orchid tapes, “shadow”, but it almost felt too sanguine compared to the other material i had written for it. while that album is about living in a state of flux, this track is about the quest to get out of it and (in the process) discovering a rare escape in the form of another person. thanks to the boy ryan for this opportunity – so happy this song finally has a home!
