Richard D. James aka Aphex Twin has finally released a new track called “minipops 67 [120.2][source field mix]” from his new album Syro, his first in thirteen years, out September 22 on Warp. PLAY LOUD.
Album premiere: Ballet School’s The Dew Lasts an Hour
In Berlin’s thriving DIY scene, an Irish singer, Japanese-Brazilian guitarist and British drummer met in 2012 and Ballet School was born. Fittingly, the three Cocteau Twins fans were signed to the Bella Union label, which will be releasing this debut LP. London blog In The Junkyard Music says, “the trio creates shimmering 80s-inspired synth-pop with Rosie Blair’s unique vocal range sounding quirky as ever on these well-crafted pop songs.”
This is the debut full-length release from the Los Angeles-based quartet, which was signed by Ty Segall himself to his Drag City imprint, GOD? Records, and should appeal to fans of Tame Impala. Admiring the “psychedelic stomp” of recent single “Broken Candle”, music blog Austin Town Hall goes on the describe the album like this: “Ganglion Reef has a great deal of fuzzy elements to it but they walk this fine line between being noisy and radio-friendly.”
