If you thought that the Illegal Art imprint was merely a stomping ground for Girl Talk's party tunes, think again. The label's latest release comes from experimental electro-pop duo Oh Astro. With releases on Mille Plateaux and performances alongside Merzbow and Sawako under their belts, these two now unroll "Snow Queen," a track that should enthrall fans of electro and ambient alike.
With a name like Pimps of Joytime, it's hard to know what to expect from this Brooklyn-based trio. Despite its somewhat misleading title, the band creates funky Latin-soul that meshes well with its labelmates on Mark de Clive-lowe's Wonderwheel imprint. Bump this track on your way to the lounge or your weekly tango classes and get into it.
Michigan-based band KILN may refuse to perform in a live setting, but don't let that distract from the trio's ability to compose profoundly complex and textured post-IDM. Rooted in a sea of effected live and electronic instrumentation, "Fyrepond" is just a taste of KILN's experimental mastery. Taken from the band's recently released long-player Dusker, this single may make even the most sober ambient enthusiast go comatose.
Radiohead isn't the only band to be giving away full-length albums. Self-motivated DIY man and hip-hop artist Earmint created an album of 10 tracks he is distributing for free through his website, with many alternate versions of the release's CD artwork available at his FLICKR account. In the vein of Sixtoo, Madlib, and others who clearly know their samplers inside and out, the man born Robert Krums delivers track after track of crisp, soulful beats with much versatility. Did we mention the entire album is free?
