DJ Harvey – Wildest Dreams

DJ Harvey releases a Wildest Dreams’  7″ for Record Store Day on Smalltown Supersound today.

Wildest Dreams are a Modern Day Equivalent of the L.A wrecking crew.

They make music inspired by the landscape of L.A and it’s surrounds for your road and acid trip. The brainchild of Harvey Bassett as a means to keep his multi-instrumentalist hand in so to speak.  The album was recorded over a week a couple years ago and unearthed by Smalltown Supersound.

Hunt it down wherever you do your shopping !

Todd Terje – Spiral

Terje is back with his latest release on his own Olsen label. Watch this one go….

Check out the teaser clips at the link below… and look for it to drop in the coming days at stores everywhere.

Todd Terje – Spiral

Four is the magic number: Todd Terje’s next 12” super sound single on Olsen Records finds him going back to his roots with two extended and sparkling synthesizer adventures for club use. “Spiral” and “Q” are preceding the mastermind’s up-and-coming debut album (where both tracks won’t appear) and are the elaborated results from a commissioned concert for Bergen’s 2012 Ekko Festival.

The title track is exactly that type of percussive-driven crescendo cut that would have had discerning discos of yesterday hitting their roofs – luckily, the dance floors of today are none the wiser while spiralling into bliss. “Q” on the other side is a twelve minute long trance-not-trance epic that makes use of cowbells, fosters distortion as a stylistic device and features a prominent melody that won’t leave your brain too soon and makes it impossible to hit the stop button.

Housed in tremendous and theme-fitting sleeves conceived by Oslo’s top illustrator Bendik Kaltenborn.

more words on the release from our in house scribe Mr Govan…

‘Like any memorable volcano Mount Olsen has made sure the eruption following a period of dormancy is unrelenting and powerful. Spewing out with no less energy than the last is the latest offering on Todd’s own label Olsen.

A-side ‘Spiral’ is a lush tapered number that shimmers with Brontosaurus style 80s indebted nostalgia as it takes you from the pre-disco nerves; dousing you a splash of Brut & gearing up with ethereal Enya vox pads before diving headlong into a big snog at your local dance hall, with Blue Monday soundtracking your conquest.

On the flip ‘Q’ has a more modern glacial palette with its muscular 126 bpm framework carving through the ice, & taking you to McMurdo to bask in the warmth of a vodka soaked polar party’
