Kigo – Guilt

Capping off a fairly relaxing weekend for music is this promising debut from Brisbane-based shoegazer D.P. Pearce, better known as Kigo. While there’s meant to be a six-track EP floating around the net somewhere, I can’t seem to find it. Which is a shame, because as soon as Guilt ends I want to here more from this guy. A lot more.

Magic Man – Paris

Magic Man are a synth-rock outift from Providence, Rhode Island. They released Real life Color, a really wonderful album, about three years ago that unfortunately fell under the radar. If you haven’t already checked it out, I can honestly say it’s well worth a listen. It’s a very broad album that at times reminded me of Passion Pit, and other times of early Arcade Fire. I’m happy to announce that the band have returned with another lovely new single entitled Paris, a warm and at times romantic release that’s easy on the ear as well as fun to listen to. Stream and download below.

White Fence – Pink Gorilla

Tim Presley of garage rockers, and frequent Ty Segall collaborators, White Fence have unleashed Pink Gorilla, their fuzzy and psychedelic new single. Anyone who dug last years critically acclaimed garage rock masterpiece Hair, will surely love this release and it’s encouraging to see Presley carrying that blistering form into 2013. This track should be played loud.

White Fence release their new album Cyclops Reap through Castle Face Records on April 9.

Ghostface Killah – The Rise of the Ghostface Killah

My favourite rapper, Ghostface Killah will finally release his new studio LP Twelve Reasons to Die on April 16 through RZA’s Soul Temple Records. Ghostface has just shared the album’s lead single The Rise of the Ghostface Killah, a collaboration with producer/composer Adrian Younge. This track sounds great, and RZA’s production really channels that classic 36 Chambers era sound.
