Quite a few of the best humans have albums out today. Too Free, @6organs @ParlorWalls
Too Free – Love in High Demand (Sister Polygon Records)
Too Free is born of the most innate curiosity in Awad Bilal (Big Freedia, Vasillus), Carson Cox (Merchandise), and Don Godwin (Callers, Impractical Cockpit), their sound is a question of connection. Can we find each other in the club? In the bass? In the car? Can we find ourselves when we dance? Their debut album Love In High Demand is a startlingly succinct pop meditation on desire, compassion, and groove.

via Ahmad Zaghal
Ogre – Geist (Self Released)
Scala Place – Cloud (Fireflower Foundation)
Hi I’m Seffi and I’m sick so here’s an experiment I made with a vintagesoft approach to signalwave. I wanted to create the illusion that this is the lost soundtrack to an old film reel.

Phantoms vs Fire – Modern Monsters I & II (Blackjack Illuminist)
“Ambient music in a raw and pissed off state […] The glitchy electronics fuzz buzzes like angry bees, while emphatically pressed synth notes and grimy guitar-like grind push forward. The beat is metallic and echoed, striking mechanically like a relentless baton.” – Rebel Noise (USA)
via Galaxy Rise
Tongues of Mount Meru – The Hex Of Light (Moving Furniture Records)
the monstrously awesome new Tongues Of Mount Meru record came out today, you need this drone

Urgula – Frequency Wars (Bricolage)
Urgula’ is a fresh alias from Glasgow producer John McLaren aka ‘Kill Them With Noise’. KTWN is no nonsense, dance floor orientated techno. Things take a more focused and sound design approach with the Urgula alias. The sounds are still sharp and full of drive but come stripped back to their core and given that little bit more space to bounce off each other amid the frequency wars.
The Homesick – The Big Exercise (Sub Pop)
If their debut Youth Hunt marked The Homesick’s tryst with faith and pastoral life, the band’s upcoming second album The Big Exercise brings them to more grounded, tangible pastures. With its title ripped from a passage in the Scott Walker-biography Deep Shade Of Blue, the record is a concentrated effort by Jaap van der Velde, Erik Woudwijk and Elias Elgersma to explore the physicality of their music in fresh ways.
via Paul Den Heyer
Randi Pontoppidan / Christian Rønn – HEAD¨SPACE (Chant Records)
On ‘HEAD¨SPACE,’ Randi Pontoppidan & Christian Rønn pair the organic warmth and plasticity of the human voice with the beautifully off-kilter palette of amplified Würlitzer and electronic soundscapes to generate an exquisite sound world of non-verbal language, exploring the outer limits and deepest secrets of sonic expression.
Boz For Oz (BozForOz)
