Nicole Miglis

Nicole Miglis is a folk artist from Gainesville, Florida. She makes blissfully melodic lullabies. When playing live, she plays her songs with an acoustic guitar and sings, and friends sometimes accompany her with vocal harmonies or cello/viola/strings. She also plays flute, piano, and does vocal harmonies for Levek too. Definitely someone to keep an eye on. I can't wait to hear a full length release from her, hopefully it's in the works.

Sumsun Mixtape for Streets Of Beige

Sob.003 Sumsun by Streets Of Beige on Mixcloud

Sumsun's last mixtape was super good. He's just released a new one for bass enthusiasts Streets Of Beige, including tracks by Gold Panda, Off Balance Atlas, Quap, Baths, Kites Sail High, Evenings, Great Beer, Sam Prekop, Teebs, Yuk., Dunian, Simian Mobile Disco, Car Crash Set, The Ruby Suns, Sumsun himself, and his remix of our song "Asipop".

It's a good listen, check it out.

"London // United Kingdom
Bringing the swing and bass of 2009 LA to London spaces, with a dash of NY disco, Streets Of Beige is a venue hopping concept club carving a lone niche.

With a conglomerate of artists veering off onto the beaten track of instrumental hip-hop we decided to launch a night to celebrate the most innovate side of bass music in 2010. Anyone with a taste for Dilla won't be let down.

There'll also be splashes of disco and slo-mo, and some of the hazier cuts that have been bothering blogs lately, along with lashings of experiemental dubstep and the odd house dabble.

And our Mixcloud presence? A regular mix series showcasing some of the best international bass you can imagine. "

SoftSpot is a duo/trio from Brooklyn, New York. I saw them perform at the Civic Media Center in Gainesville as a trio; it was one date of a month-long tour across the east coast. Live they performed with a guitar through a few pedals, another member playing keys, bass, or drums, and a female vocalist who would tap drum sticks around everyone's feet or play ukulele, something like that. Nicely composed songs, definitely a band I'm glad I came across.

(9/3) Lake Underhill House Show

Last Friday, Eamon Ford organized a house show consisting of The Spookfish, Totally Nebular, Emily Reo, Dark Sea of Awareness, and Hear Hums. Good vibrations everywhere, really nice event. Each band played in a different location in the house; everyone moving from space to space was a really interesting element to the night. The Spookfish played in the music room to start the night off. Emily Reo and Dark Sea of Awareness both played in the kitchen. We played in the corner of the screened in patio. Lastly, Totally Nebular played on the opposite side of the patio near the door to the house. Fortunetly, Danny Mcguire filmed some of it.

Above is Emily Reo's set, accompanied by Steve of Dark Sea of Awareness.

Totally Nebular playing some good jams. Always intergrating themselves into the crowd as they play, and a finale of each jumping in the pool.

The power went out during the begining of our set, pretty funny.

Sumsun New Song "Ants" / Announces Album

Leaving Records has just released the first track off of Sumsun's new album Samo Milagro, which is due out October 6th through Moamoo and September 28th through Leaving Records. Sumsun has been brewing these songs for a long time while playing live, so it's really exciting the wait is coming to an end and a date is set for the release.

Sumsun - Ants

"Ants" is a colorful song made up of layered textured ear candies swirling around in euphoria. This will definitely be a really flowly meditative album, but in a way that you could bop your head to if you felt like dancing.

Timothy Gordon Hicks - The Riftless Sift

This past summer, Timothy Gordon Hicks--who's project Mandragora Dream was recently blogged about--made available a release of live ambient jams performed between the months of April and May titled The Riftless Sift. You may find yourself lost in nostalgia and from the first track at least reminded of melodic scales from bands like Explosions In The Sky, but far more ambient and soundscape-like. The rest of the songs follow in a dark, meditative, chant-like manner. At times, the juxaposition of blissfullness and sorrowed strings bleed together achieving a similarity to what was brilliant about Mandragora Dream.

Make sure to download The Riftless Sift because it's free!

His most recent release, released in August of this year, is titled Soundtrack To A Projection Ghost, we'll cover that soon, download it now if you'd like.
