[DOWNLOAD] The Grouch & Eligh x CunninLynguists - The Winterfire EP

Posted 4 days, 11 hours, 30 minutes ago


SURPRISE! CunninLynguists haved teamed up with fellow indie hip-hop mainstays The Grouch & Eligh (G&E) to bring you The Winterfire EP. The release is now available via the usual outlets digital outlets as well being available for free via Bandcamp.

After a banner year for both outfits, G&E and CunninLynguists wanted to thank fans with new music and a potent side-project. This surprise EP is sure to set the underground on fire with contrasting styles over 5 tracks of classic Kno production. The Winterfire burns brightly, with organic sounds such as the syncopated flows and driving storytelling on “The Gas Station Attendant.” With many cult-championed songs about intimacy in each group’s catalog, EP opener “Fire In Her Eyes” builds upon that repertoire, while time is analyzed in “100 Years” to name a few.

Winterfire literally sets the stage for the annual How The Grouch Stole Christmas Tour beginning December 4 in Santa Cruz, California. This year’s series of West Coast dates will feature Grouch & Eligh along with CunninLynguists & DJ Abilities as well as some very special guests in each city. CD copies of the new EP will be available on tour in exchange for canned goods intended to be donated to food kitchens in time for the holidays. Winterfire will also released on limited edition vinyl, with pre-orders beginning November 18. Brothers in arms, G & E + CunninLynguists have come together in 2014 with an EP, a tour and a common cause.

[NEW RELEASE] Fjer - Beautiful Home (EP)

Posted 3 weeks, 5 days, 23 hours, 58 minutes ago



FjerBeautiful Home | Photo: Jesper Justesen | [BUY NOW]

It’s finally here!! Fjer’s Beautiful Home is available TODAY!! You can get it at Bandcamp, iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, etc.

Shortly before the release of 2013’s A New Start, the Danish Singer/Songwriter/Producer was boarding in a Brooklyn brownstone owned by a 90-year old woman. It was there that she became inspired to build a floor by floor portrait of a home and the stories of chaos, love and loss contained within the walls.

Beyond producing her own work, Fjer further sets herself apart from her electro-soul contemporaries by building the foundation of the record atop emotive piano & string ballads to go with the booming retro-flavored 808s and modern chill-wave soundscapes. Sampling a plethora of household sounds and noises, Beautiful Home draws you into its atmospheric narrative the second you press play. The artistic growth on display from her first release is fully on display here.

Don’t forget, you can still order the physical CD digipak + exclusive sticker right now @ FjerMusic.com Shipping starts November 3.

TRACKLISTING:
1) Beautiful Home
2) Floors
3) Children [VIDEO]
4) Stairs
5) Roof

Executive Producers: Fjer & Peter Anthony Red

[AUDIO] Peter Anthony Red - “Spiral (Cosmo Remix)”

Posted 4 weeks, 1 day, 22 hours, 39 minutes ago


Things have been quiet on the Peter Anthony Red front since the release of The Projectionist back in 2012. Well, here’s a brand new remix of “Spiral” from the producer Cosmo. Here, Cosmo boils the dense lyricism of the original down to a minimalist groove, chopping and fragmenting the vocals into an ambient patchwork of phrases and emotive drones over a atmospheric house shuffle. This one’s perfect for your next fancy cocktail party.
