The Letter

First up we have our newest staff member with another great choice, LoversDedicationStation by Seekersinternational. Here’s the word of Alison: “A sample-heavy soundscape combining lo-fi vocals, movie clips, dubs into a dream-like sequence with the singles; IfUWantMe and SaturdayNiteDrive being particular highlights. is doesn’t sound like anything else out there at the moment and it definitely requires a couple of listens as there is so much in there to discover.”

Next up is Josh’s pick with Excited Delirium by Image Man. Here’s what he has to say: “It would be easy to dismiss this new release on SUNAL / PERABOB as just another sample-heavy club record. Instead Excited Delirium manages to achieve its title quite well. Samples and sounds, which begin joyful contort through excessive repetition. You almost feel overwhelmed. It’s a thin line, but as Image Man errs toward it, something new – vocal samples which sound like fragmented conversations, sometimes strings or distorted loops – is introduced and the tension is released. ”
