Buzz Alert: NJ's Ehiorobo's experimental r'n'b at Escape the Routine party - Baby's All Right, 11.25

It's rare to stumble upon artists that blend tradition and experimentation, music's past and future, as seamlessly as New Jersey's avant-soul one man band Ehiorobo. Oringally from Nigeria, the guy writes and produces in his bedroom remarkably unpredictable r'n'b tunes that manage to also sound sincere and compelling. Alectronica, hip hop and jazz equally contribute to this sonic brew that never ceases to entertain. Don't miss Ehiorobo live at Baby's All Right on November 25, within the first appointment with the Escape the Routine parties, a Deli sponsored event! Tickets are here.





New Track: "Cassette Jam One" - NAH x Ada Babar

Experimental sound sculptors Ada Babar recently popped up on our radar, dropping their split release, Nino Tomorrow (Favourite Tapes), last month with Palm frontman Kasra Kurt. Well, Babar are already back, appearing on another "wild ass" collaborative project with boundary-pushing Philly music brethren NAH, a.k.a. Mike Kuhns/Michul Kuun. Setting up a lot of midi equipment, "we went nutz on the jam session." And what they ended up laying down is an expansive ten-minute track that they've titled "Cassette Jam One," which is now available via Ranch Records. Kuhns also surprised us last week with another random EP Necessary Moods Vol. 1 that you can "pay what you want" and download HERE.





Abbi Press dances with herself and lemons in new video "Butterfly Effect"

Abbi Press has released a stunning video for her song "Butterfly Effect," a danceable indie-electronic tune chock-full of whimsical synth textures and accentuated by lightly, sparse percussive elements. The video, gorgeously colored and filmed almost entirely in slow-motion is dreamlike and mysterious. The integral recurring motif of the lemon is both striking and haunting- though I can't decide which feeling leaves more of an impact. One thing's for sure: this video is seriously cool, and a real treat to watch. -Geena Kloeppel





Michael Rocketship brings his quirky side to Alphaville on 11.18

Browsing through Michael Coleman/Michael Rocketship's rich discography is a little like getting to know a musical Dr. Jekyll / Mr. Hyde. Under his real name, Coleman releases refined and clean sounding contemporary jazz records where he plays piano and synths. But when he uses the moniker Michael Rocketship, he unleashes his darker and quirkier side through an imaginative bedroom pop that incorporates math, psych and lo-fi elements. With three EPs released in the last year alone, Rocketship seems to be the dominant ID taking over Michael's musical presonality. You'll have a chance to get to know this side of him in person at Alphaville on 11.18. Check out single 'Down the Stairs,' streaming below.





New Aunt Dracula LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Scott Daly, a.k.a. Aunt Dracula, is at it again with the newly unveiled full-length album Freaker. A bombardment of mesmerizing, menacing, experimental beats takes one into a twisted tent of fantastic strangeness. Assimilate to the alternative reality, as dance-pulsating grooves and the murky vocal arrangement fade into a dense sonic forest. Leave a trail of crumbs behind though, so that you can retrace your steps.
