Cómeme Announces Philipp Gorbachev 'DJ Edits' Collection

Back in June, Philipp Gorbachev delivered his debut LP, Silver Album, via the Cómeme label. A self-imposed Russian exile who currently works in Berlin, Gorbachev recorded much of the album at The District Union (a studio space shared by a number of Cómeme artists), and enlisted the collaborative talents of Paul Leary (of alt-rock outfit Butthole Surfers), Battles drummer John Stanier, Cómeme labelmate Daniel Maloso, and Ostgut Ton affiliate Tobias Freund. Now, Cómeme has announced that a remix collection is underway, which will see five of Gorbachev's original tracks reinterpreted by the likes of recent XLR8R podcast contributor Danny Daze, JD Twitch, and label head Matías Aguayo.

Download: Memotone & Soosh "Part II"

First Listen

Together on Memoosh, British artists Memotone and Soosh have crafted an LP's worth of vivid productions which meld together detailed beatwork with live instrumentation and tasteful field recordings. Before the record lands next week, the pair has offered up "Part II," a rich effort which wraps solemn piano chords, slow-breathing strings, and wordless vocal murmurs around a sparse, hesitant beat. Slated as a digital bonus cut to Memoosh, "Part II" proves to be an intriguing first look into what Memotone and Soosh are capable of together, a fine example of the explorative, organic touch the LP is said to highlight throughout its run. Before Memoosh lands via the Project: Mooncircle imprint on October 7, a preview stream of the album can be hard after the jump.  Read more »

First Listen
Label: Hush Hush

Seattle's Hush Hush label (whose Decibel Festival showcase we highlighted in our recent review) will next release a self-titled EP from hometown producer Andrew Sutherland under his Secret School alias. To spread the word, the label has shared EP cut "Phantoms," a bliss-streaked production flush with emotional chords, echoed vocal drones, and grand, sweeping textures. Underneath all that, the track employs shuffling rhythms and light snare rolls, further giving the tune a relaxed, introspective feel. Secret School's forthcoming EP is set to land via Hush Hush on October 13; in the meantime, a teaser video for the record and the its full tracklist can be peeped after the jump.  Read more »
