The Hungarian, Netherlands ambient-electronica duo Dream Map released the single Time on the 13th.

Having got together towards the end of last year Dream Map only have two tracks around, both belie the short time they have been together with the well structured and judged compositions transfixing the audience with their unruffled flowing elegance.

The most recent being the just under four and a quarter minutes of Time. A luxurious pillow of radiating electronica heralds the entrance of the absorbing vocal and fills the room with gently undulating washes of colour in to which the listener finds themselves merging as one in with the misty, dreamy soundtrack.

There is a snaking beat which slithers out of the speakers and in to the room, which like a Cobra sizing up prey, sways from side to side before suddenly disappearing through the carpet to reappear in a different corner with unblinking staring eyes – yet rather than becoming concerned the listener finds themselves flexing the neck, shoulders, hips and knees and swaying in similar hypnotic action with equally fixed gaze.

The combinations of electronica, instrumentation and vocal, which is the staple of HERR ALT, has a counter-intuitive organic flow in to which the audience fuses their own central nervous system.

Monologue – Single – HERR ALT is available on iTunes.*

Pip Blom – I Think I’m In Love – Single Review

Pip Blom is a lofi-indie creator from the Netherlands.

With music appearing fairly frequently, sometimes acoustic, other times plugged-in, I am glad to fill the void in the appearance of Pip Blom on the site with the latest track – I Think I’m In Love.

There is a quirky individualism to the output by which the audience can’t help but become transfixed as the singular vocal style captures the essence of the various songs, be they of forlorn moment, or as in this track, a nervous anticipatory optimism, whilst guitar bends strings to the point of testing tensile strength in a resultingly introverted two and almost five twelfths minutes composition the listener merely wishes lasted longer.

From the fourteen track album (available through Denovali Records) Frequency Modulation is the eighth.

Creating music from analogue synthesizers, effects units, looped recorded sounds – sequenced on a computer and finally mixed on an analogue desk – Multicast Dynamics always creates tracks of intrigue in which the listener can stretch their imagination.
