Robot Koch – Glassdrops

Some midweek musical inspiration today. In the UK, the weather’s been very strange this year; summer rallied very late, and has had the effect of making the impending clock change (it’s Sunday, people – that’s my public service for the week done!) and the rapid decent into winter mode that it brings about feel like it’s been snuck into our schedules.

deep, thick kicks, soothingly arpeggiated and suitably edge blurred synths, and a vocal that can be likened to candlelight, fragile yet with a concentrated warmth

That said, my mood’s already twigged, and those of you that share an almost split personality between your winter self and summer one will be starting to feel it too, no doubt. This track from Robot Koch is the epitome of the sound that tends to become my winter, as deep, thick kicks, soothingly arpeggiated and suitably edge blurred synths, and a vocal that can be likened to candlelight, fragile yet with a concentrated warmth – provided by John LaMonica – mesh in the soundscape. The video is… well, find out below. There’s nothing like a provocative video to make a great track that little bit more special.

Graciela Maria - Nothing Safe

Graciela Maria – Nothing Safe

Nothing Safe is the lead single from Graciela Maria’s freshly released Many Places LP. As soon as the full album has been digested by my discerning thought centres, I shall be back with a review; this lead single is strong enough to excite me into over eagerness to crow about it before then.

Nigh on sub zero sample rate and bit depth commands the sound of the record

Nigh on sub zero sample rate and bit depth commands the sound of the record, juxtaposed by a melancholic string accompaniment and set to a trip hoppy drum loop that lurches the track incessantly on. Graciela Maria is superb in the forefront of this Robot Koch produced track, after featuring on the producer’s previous works as a vocalist.

A frankly stunning video, directed by Pol Ponsamau, more or less necessitates an instant rewind of the track, ¬†and doing so uncovers new nuances in both the production and Maria’s performance.

Many places is available on vinyl, CD, and digital, with a list of distributors on the Project Mooncircle site.
