John Talabot – Ƒin

My most anticipated album so far this year has been John Talabot’s Ƒin. Having been hooked to his brand of sun drenched vibes ever since I stumbled onto Matilda’s Dream I have been looking forward to a full length from him for aaages.

Ƒin is extremely hard to put into words and I’ve listened to it a good few times now! Don’t get me wrong it is EXCELLENT but just hard to place anywhere… I guess the way to think about his album is through kinds of atmosphere… you can’t help but feel you are taken to places far away and made to experiences feelings through his music. Yes I realise that sounds very wanky but its the truth. Take the first track Depak Ine which takes me deep into a tropical jungle with angsty synth action hanging heavy in the air. Then on Oro Y Sangre startling scream samples take us into some type of nightmare scenario.
The two tracks that JT has made with Pional are my favourites really (conveniently available to stream below…:)) Lovely electronic noises laden with feelings and an other worldly atmosphere all over.

I highly recommend buying this album and giving it the run through at least 5 times in a row.

John Talabot – So will be now… (feat. Pional)

John Talabot’s long awaited album Fin is just around the corner and the long long wait to get our hands on this breath of fresh air is nearly over. The first proper stream from the album has been put up by JT and features his ever impressive Hivern and PermVac buddy Pional. Its the last track from the album and serves as a lovely taster of what’s to come on what’s been my most sought after album in a while! Emotive, Bassy and unusual goodness!
Pre-order on Amazon now if you know what’s good for you or wait until 14th Feb for it.

Pional – T.A.M.B. (John Talabot’s Sunset Edit)

The Hivern Disc mandem put up the below beauty today as promo for their next little party in Barcelona at Be Cool on the 19th November.
What’s even cooler is that they give the tracks away on little vinyls when if you get down early enough… now there’s an incentive to get to a party early!

HVNED001: Hiverned #1 : JT + MP Edits

One of my favourite labels out there is Hivern Discs based out in sunny Barcelona… They always put together some really nice little limited packages and are always worth checking out.
A really nice thing they do for their parties out there is to make tiny amounts of vinyl specially for the events to give out for anyone who gets down early. Very cool!
Anyways this JT edit has been hanging around on Soundcloud for ages and its good to see its getting released September 12th strictly limited to 300 pieces…
Grab em while you can!
