    Kojo - Guide My Soul

    Kojo
    Guide My Soul
    Label: Random Records

    Guide My Soul is the first full length psybass release from KOJO (aka Alexander Green). It is filled with a multitude of quirky samples, fat, plucky bass lines and upbeat rhythms. Time spent experimenting with styles and techniques over the past years pay off throughout the 14 tracks offered here by making this a grand adventure through many sonic landscapes distant dimensions.

    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.

    Mindex
    Sleep Deprivation
    Label: Night Owl Collective

    Russian born all original electronic composer, Mindex, touts a terrific topography composed of modern synthesizers and effects morphed into lush layers of melodic patterns and textures. While his other works are more upbeat and punchy, this release really takes the sleep deprivation aspect to heart and is dreamy, ambient and other worldly.  He will be fully awake though on 4/26 (with Milwaukee’s own Deerskin) at Ruby Madison in Madison, WI.

    SOOHAN
    Trānsmūtō
    Label:

    Accelerating his unique musical style of amalgamating global snippets formulated from a persistent multi cultural appreciation, SOOHAN’s infectious 7th album, named from the Latin trāns- + mūtō (“change, alter”), uniquely splices kitchy American pop music with regional dance and folk music into bass heavy mixes. His sample heavy electronic experiments are clever and entertaining to listen to, as well as catchy and danceable (if ya wanna get up and shake!)

    Art Paul Schlosser & Frankie Pobar Lay
    Cartoons
    Label: Art Paul Schlosser

    Art Paul Schlosser is one of Madison’s most prolific musical street buskers. On this round of tunes, with the help of Frankie Pobar Lay, he focuses on songs about cars. Production values aren’t great and most songs were recorded live, but each CD cover is a one of a kind artwork by Art Paul himself. My song favorites are “Banksy Graffiti My Car”, “I Left My Phone In My Car” and “Let’s Make Taco Trucks Great Again.” For a tip and a smile he’s sure to play your favorite next time you see him.

    Shpongle Static
    Live at Ozra 2019
    Label: Twisted Records Ltd

    If you were wondering if the name meant this was the phenomenal fusion of two visionary musical talents, SHPONGLE (Simon Posford) & EAT STATIC (Merv Pepler), you would be correct! Cross pollinating their globally appealing psychedelic electronic music is certainly a treat and if you were lucky enough to attend this legendary Psychedelic Trance festival in Ozra, Hungary you could have seen it take place in front of your eyes. For the rest of us though, this landmark release will tell the tale of their combined sonic wizardry.
