MORR

The debut album by Ex-Fenster member Rémi Letournelle. Following a 7" split single on Berlin DIY label Späti Palace and Steps, a six-track EP released on Morr Music last year, Adventures is the first LP of the French man. His bubbling vintage synths (together with an impressive variety of instruments) will take you on a strange trip through imagined galaxies and secret deep-sea worlds. Call it weird, but this is amateur pop in all its glory, and the most natural outlet for Slow Steve. Think of Ariel Pink, John Maus, early Future Islands, old Krautrock luminaries or Arthur Russell - a whole school of alternative pop music that Rémi is very likely to join. Adventures is more than just an application. When Rémi moved to Berlin, he met psychedelic pop outfit and fellow Morr signees Fenster. Rémi has been part of their live shows as well as contributing to their first two albums. There are certain familiarities between the washed-out sound of Fenster and Slow Steve, but Adventures sees Rémi doing his own thing.

3rd album by Berlin's indie weirdos Fenster. Presenting a varied palette of post-psychedelia on this original soundtrack for the movie "Emocean"

Fenster's Emocean is the soundtrack to an adventure sci-fi film created by and starring the band. The music is a swirling cosmos of richly varied post-psychedelia, transcending the boundaries of reality and traditional pop-records to join the ranks of other genre bending Music Films like Daft Punk's "Interstella 5555" or Prince Rama's "Never Forever". With Emocean, the band utilizes their classic approach to non-traditional percussion and instrumentation, but this time ventures deeper into new territory with funky bass lines (Off The Cahin) complimented by additional instruments like bass clarinet (Memories), flute (Phantasia) and modular synthesizers (Samson's Theme). Emocean is a nuanced and surprising departure from their first two albums. The approach to this record was a more holistic exercise in "collective songwriting" and was resulted from a series of feverish jam sessions. The sounds evoke a broad spectrum of parallel universes - from soothing surfy tidal cliffs to analog synth dungeons, interstellar purple-funk disco-techs, wobbly organ's in houses of worship, acid blues parades and delicate maiden's picking daisies on the moon (Les Fleurs). The most danceable track is definitely Off the Cahin, and Memories is a sun soaked summer jam.

Third and most accessible album by Icelandic experimental pop miracle Sin Fang. Recorded & produced by Alex Somers (producer of Sigur Ros & Jonsi). 

Although there is a certain reassuring quality to evergreens - you can rely on them to never drop their foliage - it's the flowering plants, the ones that bud, blossom, and bloom, which really light up and even define a season. This is exactly what happens on Flowers, Sin Fang's third solo album: Seabear's founder and mastermind unlashes a melodic spring storm and explores even more corners of the lush and baroque gardens he spent the last five years in.

Praise for Sin Fang:

Rolling Stone: "...a psyche pop gem that's as haunting as it is transfixing"

New York Times: "How does a band like Fleet Foxes get on SNL and a band like this not even get to do a TV on the radio remix?"

NPR: "Like Animal Collective, Sin Fang Bous layers and loops together unusual sound effects, samples, and vocals to create a sound that could easily melt into every nook in the most cavernous of spaces."

Telekinesis

Dirty Thing

    After his stunning self titled debut album, Michael Lerner aka Telekinesis brings you "Dirty Thing", which pays homage to the culture of Low Fidelity, Michael Lerner recorded this EP all alone with the microphone of his Macbook and "insane amounts of compression". The record's raw sound fits perfectly to its five songs: candid, straightforward and always emotional: This is exactly the kind of rock n roll-record that's become rare - just a bunch of incredibly catchy two-minute-tunes. While two of them are brand new, you'll already know the other three: "Calling All Doctors" (from the debut album - different version though), "Meaningless" ( Magnetic Fields cover) and "The Drawback" a Warsaw ( Joy Division) cover.
