Yuno [News/Listen]

A new artist named Yuno is making his first record and is in need of some help. He’s recording it all in his bedroom, and although he’s reached his $2000 goal, every other dime goes into new equipment and ultimately supporting his career as an artist.

Click here to go to his Kickstarter page where you can donate however much you wish, and in return have some goodies sent your way. Why donate? I admit, I don’t often support these projects, however I heard Yuno’s track Sunlight randomly on a blog and was instantly drawn to his sound. Formally known as, Unouomedude, Yuno’s dream pop song Sunlight will surely have you tapping your foot and singing along….and hopefully handing over your card details. Best of luck to him.


Arrange – New Memory [Listen]

The end of summer melancholy has started to descend upon my music library, and my current favourite is called Arrange. His slow synthy beats overlayed with shoegazy vocals summons a sound that’s best enjoyed loud and alone.

New Memory is Malcom Lacey’s latest album, after a handful of releases in the past two years. His songwriting carries an ongoing theme of loss and heartache which stem from an unfortunate abusive childhood. Despite this, the album consist of wonderful moments of uplifting instrumentals that keep your head turned in a positive direction . The ambient hum that compliments his tracks throughout will no doubt hinder understanding the spoken words during the first listen, but this results in you wanting to hit repeat and take it in again.

His music resembles artists such as Perfume Genius and Youth Lagoon, with electronic harmonies that echo the work of composers like Eluvium. The album is an enjoyable melancholic experience, but as Paul Lester from the Guardian puts it; “Not for the faint-hearted, but perfect for the heartbroken”.

Here’s the track Caves from New Memory which was released this year in July.
