1. Now We Will Be Brothers – Bowery Boy Blue
“Somber, heartfelt and sublime.” – 3Hive
2. Secrets – Moritz Wettstein
“A rather alienating mixture from Progressivedub and Seattle activism” – Gray Suburbs
3. I Don’t Wanna Go To Williamsburg – The Brooklyn What
“Something you would have seen at CBGB around 1977… blazingly energetic, loud, often hilarious rock with purist punk energy, intelligence and a spot-on, often vicious sense of humor.” – Lucid Culture
4. Cuckoo – ElodieO
â€œA singer whose breathy, visceral voice is matched only by the 21st-century downtempo electro-pop that backs her up.â€œ – XLR8R
5. New Love Concept – The Specialist
The visceral solo work of Glass Rifle, and Prisoner In Orbit lead singer Filippo Passamonti.
6. Big Nature – Django Voris
The sound of a jackhammer at 1/20th speed, squeaky brakes on buses, local business jingles from the 80’s, operas about world leaders, that happy growl a dog makes when playing with a new furry toy.
7. Cold – The Courtesy Tier
“It’s the sound of an army of vigil antis (sic) lurking in the shadows, dwelling in their desire for some sort of vengeance. Courtesy Tier is a reminder that good things happen when you stick to the roots.” – Knocks From The Underground
8. Murky Circuitry – Fates
A mix of extreme, urban artificiality with a spacious, natural overtone. Fates is a collaboration between Moritz Wettstein, Django Voris and PJ Norman (Iamprimate).
9. Cameras – Iamprimate
Cameras is a B-side from the forthcoming Iamprimate album Light.Breaks.Focus.
10. Stop Me – This Reporter
“Complex and remarkably accessible, atmospheric yet earthy, sparse acoustic instrumentation cutting through dense arrangements.” – Lucid Culture
