Jogging House might not be something special at the first glimpse, but once you delve beneath and actually start listening to his music, you know he’s serious about what he’s doing and it’s actually very unique. The man behind the alter-ego is Boris Potschubay, he lives in Frankfurt am Main. He creates a special touch with his R&B-music by including some subliminal ambient elements to it and a lo-fi sound-scape. It’s not really a widely used combination and he does it with such grace that it’s a pleasure to listen to every track. Since he was included in the mixtape that Beläten made for me, I hooked up with him and asked him a bunch of questions. Hopefully you’ll enjoy reading this and looking at the wonderful pictures.
So, I continued my search in a different category. I found some band called Molasses and checked their EP out which is titled “Whiskerbiscuit EP“. They also had one of the weirdest covers, with screechy pink in the background. Turns out that they’re a two-pieced noise-rock outfit, moving through different genres in search of influences. May include: punk, stoner-rock and some math-rock. Excitingly enough, this sounds like a blend of what is good with nostalgia and what’s good with not being stuck in the past.
As I haven’t written who they are, maybe that’s appropriate after some sentences of describing their music. The two girls are Katie Weeks, who play the drums and Alessia Lee that play guitar and sing. I listened through their album and almost 3/4 out of it was good and even remotely interesting. Since there’s a lot of stalemate bands out there, I think I’d rejuvenate your mind with another one of those bands that you usually find on weird occasions, such as this one.
Listen to Whiskerbiscuit EP below and buy the album if you wish, or download it for free.
I snooped around on bandcamp trying to find some good music and carefully made my way to the synth-pop tag. Weirdly enough, I found one of the covers to be a little bit odd, it wasn’t like the other covers. Either there were shitty covers or just blatantly overworked ones. This one was kind of eccentric, but at the same time frightening. It belonged to a band called Ashrae Fax, hailing from Greensboro, North Carolina.
The album is called “Static Crash“, so go and check it out and make up your mind. As I’m a swede and a bunch of miles away from the states, my mind told me: “hey, they look and sound pretty cool“. So I decided that I’d share this gem with you. Do also buy their album, it costs 12 dollars and it’s on vinyl. Can’t get it any cheaper than that to be honest, not for that amount of tracks and not for that kind of great music either. You should hurry, because there’s only 13 copies left of it.
