I just saw Japanese Wallpaper in Brisbane last night at his first ever interstate, headline show and I can’t stop listening to anything that is even remotely related to the young Melbourner. Thankfully Golden Vessel, a Brisbane based producer of the same age has given us a remix to Wallpaper‘s magical Waves, as an addition to the few songs that Wallpaper has out. Adapting Wallpaper‘s production and Pepa Knight‘s vocals to his own style, Golden Vessel turns Waves around and makes it his own. If you’re keen on hearing more of Golden Vessel’s sound you can head over to soundcloud and check out last year’s Stairwell EP on bandcamp. Enjoy.
You might recognise the name Jesse Davidson from Japanese Wallpaper‘s magnificent Between Friends, well it turns out the Adelaide native has some pretty great material of his own. Ocean is his most recent release and it is something that you need right now. Get on it. Enjoy.
We’re fans of Petit Biscuit over here and he recently had his song, Alaska, featured on S O M I C O‘s first compilation album. S O M I C O is a collective for artists aged 18 and under (which in this day and age is quite a few) with an effort to help “lay the foundations for young artists’ futures”. There are quite a few familiar names on the compilation and I’m going to go check it out now. Enjoy.
Dylan Hill and someone I know of only as Alisha, make up the magical duo of Casper Cult. The Melbournites now have four songs released, having put two on their soundcloud on Saturday as a free download. As I have said with their previous releases of Endless Nightmare and Industrial Love, these guys are amazing and you should stop whatever you are doing and check them out right now. Enjoy.
Mount Dreams is LUUUL and Petit Biscuit, and while their first single Wolfs isn’t quite the sound I expected, it is still a damn good one. Petit Biscuit comes from the experimental side of electronic production and LUUUL is more likely to put out an ambient electronic/indie piece; Wolfs takes the form of an indie pop/rock track that serves as the first glimpse of their upcoming album as Mount Dreams, one that’ll surely be worth looking out for. Enjoy.
At this point I’m beginning to suspect that Japanese Wallpaper can do no wrong, he has gone from strength to strength this year with every release being outright phenomenal. As with his last two singles Japanese Wallpaper‘s production work on Between Friends is purely magical and the guest vocals, this time supplied by Adelaide’s Jesse Davidson (who has some pretty great music himself), are suitably on point. Japanese Wallpaper. Between Friends. Get on it. Enjoy.
Using some vocals from Jœy Ugh, Petit Biscuit‘s latest original composition is the ethereal Sleepless. The French producer has continued to impress with each and every release this year and leaves me wishing there was a little more to his catalogue. But alas we’ll just have to keep what we have on repeat. Enjoy.
