New Music

Music can be live or recorded, it doesn’t matter how it finds us. What matters is if it has the ability to stir us, make us think and make us feel. We search for the different, the new, the inspiring, the upcoming and the underground. If it makes our knees tremble with excitement and our skin shiver with pleasure, we’ll share it.

The whole literal video movement was doing the rounds a while back, and this clever hack on Take On Me has been well viewed already, but we’ve just found it and, damn, if it isn’t the best thing we’ve seen in a while!

At Lost At E Minor, we’re old enough to be fans of the original hit by German band Nena. Well, at least some of us are (no names, no packdrills). But this version of the 1983 anti-nuclear protest song is even catchier. [Watch the awesome video here]

Milo Sumner Contributor

By Milo Sumner in New Music on Monday 21 July 2014

In recent years the iconic vinyl has been supplanted by compact discs and it’s successors. That is to say, it was supplanted in the minds of the manufacturers at least. In actual fact however, a persistent appreciation for vinyl discs as the primary musical object has endured and flourished decades after it was declared ‘obselete’. […]

Found! You can now stream Aphex Twin’s abandoned LP from 1994 for free

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Music on Thursday 3 July 2014

What’s that they say about creative geniuses? When you’re as good as Richard D. James a.k.a. Aphex Twin, even an abandoned LP has stardust all over it.

Other than four people (including James) who were known to have a vinyl test pressing of the album, the world never got to hear much from or about this LP.
