Mixtape: Fractured Air – February 2019

leave a comment »

fracturedair_feb19

Our February mix features two tracks from Dublin-based singer-songwriter Maria Somerville’s eagerly awaited debut album “All My People” (released on 1st March). The album’s title-track is an enthralling post-punk exploration immersed in ethereal pop dimensions, while “Eyes Don’t Say It” unfolds a sublime, brooding and highly immersive sound world.

The cherished U.S. songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Heather Woods Broderick delivers her most captivating and innovative work to date with her highly anticipated third full-length solo studio album “Invitation” (pre-order available via Western Vinyl). The album’s lead single “Where I Lay” emits a fragile beauty amidst anguish and doubt but ultimately becomes a deeply cathartic experience from the depths of the human heart.

February’s mix also features new releases from Scottish composer Andrew Wasylyk’s exceptional third studio album “The Paralian” (via the ever dependable Athens Of The North imprint); New York-based cellist and composer Julia Kent’s newest sonic marvel “Temporal”; new Ghostly signing Khotin and Portand Oregon’s Dolphin Midwives.

Mixtape: Fractured Air – January 2019

fracturedair_jan19

Our January mix features a host of sumptuous sonic gems that surfaced – for the most part – throughout last year. Vital reissues from Amercian dream pop artist Happy Rhodes (Numero Group); Robert Rental’s sublime post-punk explorations culled from 1980 demo tapes (Optimo Music) and Dublin artist Stano’s seminal 1983 solo debut released on Dublin’s Allchival re-issue imprint.

More sensational African funk emanates from the formidable Berlin Habibi Funk imprint (the label’s latest two releases are featured). With thanks to the XLR8R top tracks of 2018 piece, we’ve been introduced to the remarkable ambient opus ‘Nothing To Loose’ by DJ Healer, released last year to widespread acclaim. Peter Broderick (with a little help from his friends) has released his eagerly awaited “Sings Arthur Russell” album. His gorgeous rendition of “The Ballad Of The Lights” closes out our January mixtape.

Thanks as always for listening.
