New Electronic Releases You Shouldn't Miss - Fall 2014

There's so much music out there, how does one find their way to the good stuff?  I've culled a few new releases from the multitude for your listening consideration.

Aphex TwinSyro

There hasn't been an Aphex Twin (also known as England-based Richard David James) studio album since 2001.  This one is pronounced "Sigh ro" which is apparently a word his kid made up.

Example - Live Life Living

Englishman Elliot John Gleave's 5th studio album.  He's calling out some old school gods as influences (Chemical Brothers, The Prodigy, Underworld, Faithless), so you know I'm into it.

Busy P - Rainbow Man 2014 EP

French DJ Pedro Winter brings back the track Rainbow Man for 2014. Did you know he used to manage Daft Punk?

Faded Paper FiguresRelics

Fourth album from these indie electronic Californians.  Synthpop sound.  What's not to love?

The Juan MacLean - In a Dream

Namesake John MacLean and former LCD Soundsystem member Nancy Whang. "A Place Called Space" is long for radio play, but I played it anyway.

Audit Division Audit Division EP

They're American, but they sound like Brits in the mid 80's New Order realm.  Especially on songs like "Tear Me Apart."

Diamond Version - CI

An collaborative effort by Germans Byetone and Alva Noto.  Neil Tennant of Pet Shop Boys supplied vocals for "Were You There?"  CI stands for "Corporate Identity" for those in the know.

Fenech-Soler - Rituals

The second album for this UK duo.  A special version with 4 tracks from their first album hit the US this summer.

Starwalker - Losers Can Win EP

French Jean-Benoit Dunckel of Air and Icelandic Bardi Johannsson of Bang Gang collaborate on this strangely pleasing EP.  Check out the Bloodgroup Remix of "Bad Weather" should you get the chance.

Röyksopp & Robyn - Do It Again EP

Norwegian duo Röyksopp partner up again with Sweden's Robyn.  You remember "The Girl and the Robot" on Junior.  One of my favorite albums in life.
