Andrea Balency's "Walls" EP out on June 23

EP release: debut EP ‘Walls’, co-produced by Airhead
Release date: 23 June
Label: Bataille Music
Listen on: official Andrea Balency site 

A 22-year-old part-Mexican, part-French digital native world citizen (now living in Paris, but previously in NY, Mexico DF, London and Buenos Aires), Andrea Balency was spotted in 2010 as one of the most promising and exciting musical presences in the Mexican art-rock scene and singled out by James Blake (R&S, Universal), Inc. (4AD), Au Revoir Simone (Moshi Moshi) and Mount Kimbie (Warp), among others, as a supporting act. In April 2013 she was chosen by The Cure to open the closing gig of their worldwide tour in the main Mexico DF stadium “Foro Sol” for 50,000 people. 

She played SXSW and Sonar before settling in Paris to start working on a new EP, WALLS, an eclectic mix of elegant hooks and soul-tinged indie electronica to be released on the 23rd of June 2014.

Having recently collaborated with avant-garde US and UK-based producers like Nick Hook & Los Angeles electro wunderkind Salva, she secretly supplied lead vocals on James Blake’s collaborator Airhead’s critically acclaimed single “Autumn”. Following a standout collaboration with New York based rapper Kilo Kish and with former Young Turks act We Are Shining’s new track co-written by FKA Twigs due to be released, Andrea sheds her high-brow classical piano training, blue-eyed English soul and both French and South American folk inspirations to plunge into washes of expansive electronica and dreamy, suggestive vocal textures in her solo project.

“You’ve Never Been Alone”, the first single from the WALLS EP, was co-produced by Rob McAndrews aka Airhead, recently acclaimed by Pitchfork for his debut album “For Years” (R&S, 2013), and mixed by the stellar French sound engineer Stephane “Alf” Briat (Air, Phoenix, Sebastien Tellier, Francoise Hardy, etc.). The song gives an original, continental answer to the UK based “twisted R&B-sung-by-cutely-breathy females scene” (The Guardian) that has been much-trumpeted lately. With its interrupted, intricately detailed and effects-washed sound, “You’ve Never Been Alone” is an idiosyncratic yet fiercely melodic, groove-based pop hit. Throughout her EP, Andrea explores relationships, restlessness and dislocation, using a smorgasbord of sounds to dig down into the heart of her nomadic upbringing.

File Andrea’s ethereal deep soul dubstep sounds and her fairy-like unique voice next to AlunaGeorge, FKA Twigs, Little Dragon, The XX & SBTRKT and you will not regret it. Currently writing her first album, which will feature a collaboration with Mount Kimbie, Andrea Balency is a beautiful singer you don’t want to mess with. It’s time to let you go.

Reaction

 

“Here’s a new name for you, Andrea Baleeency, franco-mexican, You’ve Never Been Alone” – Gilles Peterson, BBC 6Music (Single Premiered on his 6Music Worldwide show, May, 2014)

“Exquisite new single. Suitable for majestic casual lovers and dance floor demons. It sounds a bit like a nouveau electronica version of CocoRosie, with that light voice staggering against broken beats. Stunned from first listen.” – Indie Shuffle

‘Sounds incredible.’ – Red Bull Music Academy

White Reaper to release EP 

EP release: White Reaper (eponymously titled)
Release date: 24 June 2014
Label: Polyvinyl
More information and pre-orders: on Polyvinyl website

“You have the feral snarl of MC5, the itchy, rhythmic spasms of post-punk, golden-era tunefulness, and a clash of time-stamped production tricks—the curiously EQ’d drums sound like they’re being recorded through a tin-can phone connection while an eerie keyboard riff lends a touch of browned-out psychedelia.” - Pitchfork 

From the increasingly fertile DIY scene of Louisville, KY, emerges White Reaper - an incandescent power trio who is ready and willing to blow out eardrums far and wide.

The band - formed by Tony Esposito (vocals/guitar) and twin brothers Nick (drums) and Sam Wilkerson (bass) - combine sparkling hooks and fluid, fluttering rhythms to create psychedelia-tinged garage punk that make heads bob without sacrificing an ounce of sonic bite. 

Having cut their teeth playing a number of raucous local and regional shows that left everyone’s ears ringing and no pores devoid of sweat, the group is ready to unleash their eponymous debut EP - a six-song blitzkrieg that traces the band’s present and future. While dingy and jangly single “Conspirator” scratches the itch left behind by Jay Reatard, infectious stand outs “Cool” and “Funn” will undoubtedly make the ears of the Ty Segall/Oh Sees sect perk up.

Affectionately known as “Tony and the Twins,” White Reaper have six tracks in their pocket, a few future surprises up their sleeves, a thunderous live show, and they’re just getting started….

Sammal to release 'No 2' on 9 June

EP release: No 2 by Sammal
Release date: 9 June 2014
Label: Svart Records
Listen: on Soundcloud 

No 2 is Sammal’s follow-up to their critically-acclaimed eponymous debut, released on June 9 through Svart Records.

The present-day flagship of Finnish progressive rock sails back in time again to the authentic tones and warm soundscapes of the 1970s on this EP; the band doesn’t show off with unnecessarily technical playing or super-hard song structures, but focuses on forging upbeat atmospheres with strong melodies and fresh vintage sounds. Sammal relies on live playing in the studio, which brings the listener closer to the band: the production breathes so carefree that you can almost touch the notes floating in the air.

No 2 is not a companion piece to the debut, nor is it a preview of the second full-length, which will be released via Svart Records next winter. It is a mini-album, which stands on its own. Sammal wanted to clear their closet from older gems, and prepare for a new era with this release. Three of the five songs featured on the EP are old demo songs, which were re-recorded at the same session with a new track “Vankina varisten” and a cover of Aphrodite’s Child’s “Magic Mirror,” translated as “Peilin taikaa,” in the summer of 2013.

Sammal was founded in 2004 by guitarist Jura Salmi and vocalist Jan-Erik Kiviniemi. Their eponymous debut was voted as the 9th best Finnish album of 2013 by the critics of Rumba, a renowned Finnish rock and pop magazine. The second vinyl pressing of the album will be released on the same day as the EP, June 9th. No 2 will be released on LP, CD and as a digital download.
