“We have always written about the sun,” says Richard Cartwright. “The constant rotation of our planet has meant that we are offered a cleansing, regenerative opportunity every 24 hours with the sun’s rising. All life is dependent on the sun, and in honour of our appreciation of the forces that created our sun, and indeed the universe in which our sun is situated we have called our latest and 3rd album, SUN. We’re really happy with the results, hope you like it too.”
My Volcano sees the band expanding their musical vision ever outwards, traversing through fields of lush psychedelia, Odelay-esque party jams, lo-fi antifolk and tribal freak-outs. Richard In Your Mind’s ability to write such an incredibly eclectic record is an obvious achievement.
Graduating into the realm of MEDIUM FIDELITY, the group moved into Tim Done’s home/studio/archaic equipment museum, HANGING TREE, for a few days and recorded direct into his STRICTLY 1950s equipment, resulting in a release where almost all of the instruments can be heard. Mixing with the awesomeness that is Brent Griffin/SPOD, the record took on a fuzzed, melodic, and reverberated budget psychedelic bent.
+Dome is percussive, loud and exciting at times – reserved and laid back at others, but every track oozes a warm feeling that could only be described as Seekae. The Sound Of Tree’s Falling On People, first introduced Seekae’s mastery for creating intricate, beat-driven tunes, +Dome is more than just a follow up, it’s a new beginning.
Deluxe version of the brilliant second record from Seekae.
MOJO MAGAZINE 4 STARS *– Electronic Album of the Month “sharp-edged, glacial, organic electronica”
*HERALD SUN “+Dome transcends everything before and everything after it.” LA TIMES EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE OF NEW SINGLE “SIR” “Their brand of electronic is Arcadian, full of gentle glitches and ethereal atmosphere” RESIDENT ADVISOR *4/5 “Equal parts rock, hip-hop and experimental, it’s one of the most interesting records of the year thus far.”
*ROLLING STONE “+Dome is a serpentine journey that will leave you feeling refreshed, not spent.“ THE FADER ‘It’s a risky move to throw all your emotions at the wall like Seekae do when “Mingus” blooms into something gorgeous and open, but they pull it off.’
*UNCUT Magazine *‘Opener “Go” is a psychotic merry-go-round of detuned guitars and cymbals.’
Seekae’s style shifts between ambient, glitch and hip hop, and surfs between the varying electronic sounds if Xela, Boards of Canada and Telefon Tel Aviv via the pop affability of Hot Chip. Somewhat appropriately seekae have dubbed their sound “ghetto ambient”.
FBI Album of the week and described by Rolling Stone as “an album thats as ambient and mezmerizing as an iced-over forest” – 4 STARS.
Donny Benet's debut album! Comes with a bonus karaoke DVD so you can sing your favourite Donny tracks all night long.
2011 has heralded the new era of Donny Benét. Due to the apparent lack of interest in disco accordian and Jazz bass playing Donny has taken the plunge and recorded his debut album in the famous Donny Land Studios. Armed with a Drum Machine, Fender Rhodes and a Moog Synthesizer with a pitch bender that won’t stop, Donny has worked hard to create an album that will hopefully make him the most famous disco accordian/jazz bassist of the 21st century.
Seja’s brother Mirko produced, mixed and mastered the album, allowing its wide spaces to be further opened, and amplified the instrumentation is virtually all vintage electronics (Seja is known for her loyalty to vintage synths), and it’s with a simple, neat song structure we hear the stuff of classic pop. But the context is modern, and lyrically a touch hard-nosed, too busy living the present to be looking over its shoulder, ala ‘80s fans and alumni M83, granted it’s always in a dream. Crumbly, hand-crafted synth tones evoke such dreaminess, but the thematic focus of We Have Secrets But Nobody Cares never loses its way. Despite what Seja may tell you in a song.
