Download: U.S. Hard "Junk"

First Listen
Label: Blankstairs

Portland artist and musician Santiago Leyba will release his debut EP as U.S. Hard next week via hometown label Blankstairs. Serving as a preview to the three-track effort is iead track, "Junk," which unrolls an array of sharpened percussion hits atop an overdriven techno base. Said to pull from Leyba's past work in post-hardcore, noise, and drone outfits, here U.S. Hard sounds focused on avoiding recognizable patterns as he restlessly manipulates and retunes a series of percussion hits, hardly landing on a repeatable phrase while rendering a handful of cowbells an metallic hits into the track's lead elements. Dropping on August 26, the Portland producer's self-titled debut EP as U.S. Hard can be streamed in full after the jump.  Read more »

Download: Shinamo Moki "Heliotrope"

Label: Mush

Japanese outfit Shinamo Moki this week released its You Couldn't Be More Distant EP via the Mush label. Pulled from the six-track effort is "Heliotrope," a wobbly production full of slippery melodies, hand-played acoustic instrumentation, and bits of live percussion. Throughout the course of its three-plus-minute run, "Heliotrope" can sound as if it is just about to fall of course—its array of elements loosely fitting together atop stomping kicks and snares—but its creators manage to hold everything together, resulting in a track that is, in fact, made more enticing by its natural sway. The rest of Shinamo Moki's new You Couldn't Be More Distant EP can be streamed after the jump.  Read more »
