I became aware of cute and naive music through El Zoológico‘s release and became an instant fan of petite&jolie netlabel. Missing monsters by Risch is another great album with nice synth melodies and a bit of glitchy beats. Happy, compelling and well crafted work, quite enjoyable. Also, it has an amazing artwork, right in the mood of the album. Excellent.

El Zoológico - The Jungle & The Aquarium

Zip mp3

I first heard about this album through hiddenplacemusic, via twitter. It is a nifty little double album of poptronica. Since I’ve been listening it for a bunch of months, I can enumerate my favorite songs by now. Monkey is an uptempo glitch dancing tune, quick, but intense. The Brother Bear tells up another story, leading your mind elsewhere with warm textures and whispering vocals. And finally, the Jellyfish, another uptempo beat with a cool chorus.

I initiated the Jamendo-Rhythmbox plugin, activated shuffle mode and started reading a book. Don’t know when (or how), but I slept… until The Bakery Is Open woke me up! It caught my attention in my sleep and turned my brain on again (ok, that is not very scientifically precise, but, oh well, I’ve just waken up).

It is an impressive piece of work build on different movements (a 17m50s song). Instrumental, fusion and progressive is what you might expect, but it will astonish you.

This album is a masterpiece! Based on and initially conceived for being an alternative soundtrack for the science-fiction movie Metropolis, by Fritz Lang, the movements have complex and original arrangements. A mixture of orchestral elements with glitch, soft synth beds and spoken words, urban and cinematographic atmosphere… Each song has a rich diversity of sounds and moods, but are well connected under a common theme that excites your imagination!

Ok, no more written words, take your time and enjoy!

This album has a lot of style. The music is clear, groovy, and perfectly built. There are no badly constructed ideas or not-so-well placed elements. The kitchen is precise creating a nice bed for the jazzy improvisations and original vocals. Well, I liked a lot! You can check their website, if you can read Russian.

Extraordinary album!!! Triplexity is a virtual band between Nikila, SaReGaMa and Hamelin Bérengnier, build upon live collaboration thru the internet! I was already familiar with SaReGaMa’s unique music style (see 4D Reality and The Pluteus Trip compilation) and was expecting good music for this self-tagged different forms of NuJazz collaboration. It came out extremely nice! A mix of jazz, chillout, kind of meditative, with excellent instrumental melodic lines (sax, clarinet…) ok, go and download!

Vate’s new album (Volt) came out harder and darker into the electro music. These experimental tunes create a thick robotic atmosphere. Two albums from Vate I also like a lot are Volk and Cachonda. You can find out more at www.vate.com.mx!!!

The Pluteus Trip!

Pluteus larvaPlutei are born in the seawater. They represent a specific life stage (larva) of some marine invertebrates, the Echinoderms. Most of them are less than 1mm long, so tiny that inertial forces are dominated by viscous forces of the water. Just imagine if air was honey and we had to go for a walk… Plutei can swim and feed in this environment using their long arms and cilia. However, Plutei are ephemeral. They swim (and eat) for weeks or maybe months, before something else takes place. Currents can take them really far away from the place they were born. Millions of Plutei are born at once. How many would survive? How many would be thousands of miles away? How many would get proper food and not be eaten? Plutei carry the tissue of adults inside them. The food they eat, goes to adult tissues. In the end, the adult in formation takes over the larval body and the Pluteus is gone.

Plutei are part of the ocean’s hidden life. Organisms we can’t see easily, but that certainly got in between our toes when walking along the beach, or were swallowed during a swim… Its crazy and different “life” inspired the first compilation of songs from ccNeLaS, The Pluteus Trip. Download and listen, hope you like it! Go to the compilation page or continue below.
