Zonra - Is, Was, and Always Will Be

Zonra
Is, Was, and Always Will Be
Label: self-published

Beautiful, complex and thought-provoking multi-layered melodic textures and churns flow throughout mid-tempo electronica. Complex and compelling psychedelic glitch-hop nuances and breakbeat grooves litter the lively landscapes, highlighting this Denver producer’s attention to detail.

It’s Album Time
Label: Redeye Records

Immediate affection! Whimsical expressions of disco found mingling with loungy cocktail exotica are key to the significance and fluidity of the first full length release from Norwegian DJ, songwriter, and record producer Terje. The album manages to time travel between several eras while garnering the kitschy, catchy, quirky, quaint and queefless aspects of each, which is not an easy task, but it sure is fun!

Underworld & Iggy Pop - Teatime Dub Encounters

Underworld & Iggy Pop
Teatime Dub Encounters
Label: Caroline International

An unlikely coupling that pops before sputtering. As Iggy spouts surreal soliloquies and reflective prose, Underworlds creates a polished cache of catchy electronica. The concept is novel yet cantankerous, and not historical, just current spontaneous creativity from this pairing, flowing as it will into unlikely places.

Origins
Label: Interscope

What an album! These double platinum producing, Grammy winning pop icons deliver another masterpiece with several smash hits as well as several other songs (rounding out this 12 track release) that show off the evolution of their artistic diversity and depth, but not in the same predictable ways as their past releases. If you haven’t heard Natural, Bad Liar or Zero off this album, you will soon, as they are all destined to be classics!

Sunsquabi - Instinct

Sunsquabi
Instinct
Label: Sunsquabi

This Colorado based hydro funk trio really takes flight on their newest release. Each track instinctively takes on the name of a different animal or insect, led by a three-track series of singles “Caterpillar,” “Chrysalis,” and “Night Moth.” Technical wizardry shines on each track, propelled by signature wailing guitars, slithering synths and slap happy improvisational jams. Another blissful display of stunning sonic glory! Become part of their metamorphosis when you go see them (with Defunk) on 4/11 at Miramar Theater in Milwaukee, WI and 4/13 at the Majestic Theater in Madison, WI.
