Eugene Quell – Weird Purr

I don’t really know much about “indie/fuzz/noise singer-songwriter” Eugene Quell other than what his Facebook bio tells me. He has been writing, recording and performing since the early 90s in bands such as Soft Coin, Sparko, House by House and Dos Qet. His self-titled EP will be available for download on new years day through Sonic Anhedonic.
He’s streaming a song from the EP over on his SoundCloud titled Weird Purr and it sees Quell absolutely nailing that hazy early 90s grunge sound. It’s a brilliant track, and well worth a listen.

Vancouver Sleep Clinic – Collapse

Vancouver Sleep Clinic, the moniker of promising 17 year old Brisbane native Tim Bettinson, made some waves when he released his debut track Vapour a few months ago and he’s about to do the same with his latest offering. Collapse is a beautifully delicate track with a similar sound to fellow atmospheric, ambient indie artists like Active Child and Bon Iver. He’s currently gearing up for the 2014 release of his debut EP, and if it features more like this it’s sure to be a big year for him.

HAIM – Forever (Giorgio Moroder Remix)

HAIM have been given the remix treatment from Daft Punk collaborator and legendary Italian producer, Giorgio Moroder. The 73-year-old has taken their 2012 breakthrough hit Forever, and turned it into a club stomper. This wouldn’t usually be my thing, but seriously this is just undeniably incredible.

Days Are Gone is out now via Columbia.

New Burial EP Announced

Burial will release a new EP on December 16 through Hyperdub. Not many details have been released about the EP other than that it will contain three tracks with a total running time of 28 minutes.

Burial’s last release was in 2012 when he dropped the incredible Truant / Rough Sleeper 12″.
