Catch some Cherry Blossom by the river
Blowing through the flowing of my heart
If you see me somewhere down the river
Come and stand beside me its all right​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

Working on opposite sides of the landmass we call Canada, Vancouver/Montreal duo Potatohead People (producers Nick Wisdom & AstroLogical) have been making waves for quite some time with their signature jazzy boom-bap meets boogie inside the bassbin vibes. Called a "formidable tandem" by OkayPlayer, their sounds have been championed early on by the likes of Kaytranada, Soulection, Nightmares on Wax, Pomo, Exmag, Big Boi, and Phife Dawg. After a few early releases on Vancouver based netlabel Jellyfish Recordings, Brooklyn's Bastard Jazz reissued their 2012 landmark Kosmichemusik EP and pressed a 7" released on Valentine's Day 2013. The association landed their song "Back To My Sh*t" (featuring Frank Nitty of Frank'n'Dank) on a Powerade produced LeBron James documentary and Nick and Astro began working on a debut LP for Bastard Jazz, presented here. 

Big Luxury draws from influences disparate as classic jazz, prog rock, disco 90's hop, DJ Shadow-Era downtempo beats, alongside modern influences like the Brainfeeder crew and new electronic sounds coming out of Nick Wisdom's adopted hometown of Montreal. What's resulted is a finely honed, extra buttery album that effortly glides between tempos, but never loses the mood. The album also features a whole host of guest vocalists - J Dilla's younger brother Illa J, legendary Canadian MC Moka Only, New Zealand's Sorceress, and Amalia all provide contributions to the sounds within. Big Luxury is a velvety ride through vibes and a magnificent debut for these talented young Canadians.

The anomaly in question is Dolphin - a prolific outsider artist based in Baltimore. He has written and recorded over 50 full-length albums over the past 10 years or so - and has never officially released a single one of them. Until now.

To ease things into the barrage of music to come, he presents "Young Black Mind" - a 7 minute anthem that is as much autobiographical and specific as it is universal and ubiquitous. As he does on all his songs - Dolphin wrote, produced, recorded & played all the instruments on the track himself (in this case being vocals, piano, strings, bass guitar, and the MPC for drums). The song serves as a strong, yet mere "tip of the iceberg," introduction to the wholly original sound that Dolphin has cultivated and developed over all these years.

The secret's out now - but the story's just beginning.

Θὰ πρέπει νὰ ἦταν ἄνοιξη
γιατὶ ἡ μνήμη αὐτὴ
ὑπερπηδώντας παπαροῦνες ἔρχεται.
Ἐκτὸς ἐὰν ἡ νοσταλγία
ἀπὸ πολὺ βιασύνη,
παραγνώρισ᾿ ἐνθυμούμενο.
Μοιάζουνε τόσο μεταξύ τους ὅλα
ὅταν τὰ πάρει ὁ χαμός.
Ἀλλὰ μπορεῖ νά ῾ναι ξένο αὐτὸ τὸ φόντο,
νά ῾ναι παπαροῦνες δανεισμένες
ἀπὸ μιὰν ἄλλην ἱστορία,
δική μου ἢ ξένη.
Τὰ κάνει κάτι τέτοια ἡ ἀναπόληση.
Ἀπὸ φιλοκαλία κι ἔπαρση.Ὅμως θὰ πρέπει νά ῾ταν ἄνοιξη
γιατὶ καὶ μέλισσες βλέπω
νὰ πετοῦν γύρω ἀπ᾿ αὐτὴ τὴ μνήμη,
μὲ περιπάθεια καὶ πίστη
νὰ συνωστίζονται στὸν καλύκά της.
Ἐκτὸς ἂν εἶναι ὁ ὀργασμὸς
νόμος τοῦ παρελθόντος,
μηχανισμὸς τοῦ ἀνεπανάληπτου.
Ἂν μένει πάντα κάποια γῦρις
στὰ τελειωμένα πράγματα
γιὰ τὴν ἐπικονίαση
τῆς ἐμπειρίας, τῆς λύπης
καὶ τῆς ποίησης.

“Now is the time to reveal the revolving doors between government and the City that has bred lies and corruption for so long, siphoning money through our tax havens for the global super rich, while now preaching that we the people must pay our taxes and suffer austerity. Just who does our government work for?”

The video is an ode to Google Earth, the band’s long-standing favourite computer program. As cartographic enthusiasts they’ve spent vast amounts of hours over the years excessively exploring its virtual environments. Last year they noticed its crowd sourced 3D modelling project, which allowed the public to recreate the world’s buildings in 3D form, had come to a close. Millions of these CG SketchUp models are now being replaced by auto-generated 3D mesh buildings through photogrammetry technologies.
To farewell these previous crowd sourced 3D creations, the band wished to have a final celebratory song and dance through some of their favourite sites across the virtual globe. A technological last rites before the new dawn. 

Taking a dark, sultry approach to shoegaze, the Black Ryder formed in 2007 after vocalists/multi-instrumentalists Aimee Nash and Scott Von Ryper departed from the Morning After Girls. Originally from Sydney, Australia, the pair collaborated with members of Brian Jonestown Massacre, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Swervedriver and the Church on their 2009 full-length debut Buy the Ticket, Take the Ride. The album won widespread acclaim: Along with being named one of Rolling Stone Australia's 50 Best Albums of the Year, tracks from it were featured on television shows such as House and Damages. Around that time, Nash collaborated with Black Rebel Motorcycle Club on the song "Done All Wrong," which appeared on the Twilight: New Moon soundtrack. In 2010, Mexican Summer released Buy the Ticket, Take the Ride in the US, while Von Ryper and Nash moved to Los Angeles and began working on its follow-up. They self-produced 2015's even more epic-sounding The Door Behind the Door, releasing it on their own Anti-Machine Machine label.
