SAAL

RRR is always on the hunt for something a little out of the ordinary! Thanks to PLAYGROUND PR, they have pulled it out of the bag [thank you for sharing!] For all those music lovers looking for fresh, quirky new underground sounds, check out the new track from SAAL. When I saw the title pop up in my emails, I immediately thought of the 2002 American science fiction thriller Signs written and directed by M. Night ShyamalanI. It is moments like this that you hope you will not be disappointed. I wanted it tp reek of extraordinary. I wanted to be transported; I wanted to feel like Abe’s Exxodus ‘avin it large at moon party on Oddworld. And yes I did! It isn’t what I usually go for, but who cares? I liked it, I played it several times, and that to me is all that counts. I am looking forward to hearing what else the talented SAAL has to offer.

‘Signs’ is the debut single to come from eclectic underground artist ‘SAAL’. Pulling together Eastern and Western influences she is an artist that needs not only to be seen or heard, but experienced. Compared by the industry to Kate Bush and PJ Harvey; SAAL combines styles, breaks genres and experiments with her sweeping vocal range to make music that is nothing short of hypnotic.

Of Dutch and Indian descent with a proportion of her family residing in South America, SAAL needn’t look far for styles to influence her sound. SAAL welcomes her roots into her music with open arms and the evidence of her eclectic background is crystal clear. Her productions are a testament to her talents and the influences that have created the link between the two. Since moving to London, SAAL has set up her own recording studio, allowing her to record and produce her own vocals and enabling collaborations with a host of electronic producers. Amsterdam, beyond providing her with a degree in music management, also kickstarted her now true love: electronic music. Bass, breakbeats, progressive house and trance have all played a monumental role in her soundscape; enhancing her desires to delve deeper underground and create music that’s dark, effective and laced with hyper-modern energy.

In addition to her adoration for all things electronic, SAAL is impacted by her love of traditional Indian vocals and instruments; the two combined capture her sense of exploration and her natural curiosity for experimental music. SAAL uses her music and her contrasting influences to skilfully show that there is more than one side to her. It’s her striking originality, euphoric live performances and an all round gorgeousness that earns SAAL her title as a truly captivating artist.

 SAAL introduces ‘Signs’ like something from a planet unknown with a nod towards something seriously sci-fi. Atmospheric vocals, low end frequencies and stabs of sonic bass come together to create something eerie and eclectic before the vibe transforms at drum and bass speed, forming something high octane and dance floor ready.

 

‘Signs’ – Release Date 25th September 2015.

Yes! Now tracks like this is exactly why I started blogging about music. Absolutely loving ‘Pains 4 U’ by CASH+DAVID and have had it on repeat for a while now. Thank you very much to Partisan PR for sharing this one with me.

Cash+David are streaming their new single, ‘Pains 4 U’, via The Fader. Featuring a guest verse from rising Atlanta MC Rome Fortune, this track is due for release through Columbia Records on October 30th, 2015. Speaking about the track, Liz Lawrence (David) and Tim Ross (Cash) say: ‘Pains 4 U is a hypnotic repent – a call for redemption after a colossal loss. It’s a mantra of contrition with the desire to pay off a debit of pain’.

I am guilty of ignoring the lyrics of most songs, but you simply cannot ignore the message behind ‘Pains 4 U’. I think this one that will resonate with many. Irresistable beats with equally iridescent lyrics, this is a class new single for CASH+DAVID! RRR wishes them all the best for the upcoming release in October.

CASH+DAVID

New Single – ‘Pains 4 U’ Feat. Rome Fortune- October 30 2015

Immensely, immediately enjoyable stuff The Guardian
Giving splintering pop a duly required dose of synths DIY Magazine
Synth pop at once glacial and emotionally red hot. There’s a lot to love Sunday Times Culture
Comes on like The xx if they’d signed to Hyperdub instead XL NME Radar
Irresistibly silky production and visceral, thumping beats Drowned in Sound
Thrillingly anthemic i-D Magazine

 

Cash+David emerged earlier this year with their track Funn, which went on to chart on the top 10 on Hype Machine. Releasing material exclusively online, they are already receiving a great deal of support from bloggers and tastemaker sites and I can certainly see why.

“Mad Decent’s Daktyl’s has remixed mysterious synth duo Cash + David’s thrillingly anthemic debut single Funn. In Daktyl’s hands, Funn’s bass-crunching hands-in-the-air festival vibe is slickly warped into a slinky and smooth sun kissed journey, more driving a convertible along the coast than main stage at Glastonbury.”

As described by Partisan PR: “Cash is grammatical, adding sparkle and clarity to synths, locking rhythms and eloquently programming David’s scruffy, distorted, trashy guitars and Eastern world music patterns. The polarising duo aligned on discovering a mutual love of Bacon, Dylan Thomas and B movies, a partnership concreted by their shared birthday. From David’s logic sketches and Cash’s pro-tools dexterity came a flourish of indie guitar, house beat, world rhythm, tribal rock and trash pop tracks”

Justin Timberlake is finally back, but is it with the big musical bang so many of his fans were hoping for? Sadly for me, it isn’t. J.T always fills me with a feeling of deep nostalgia, and I think back wistfully to the days when the iconic red tea cosy hat of “Like I Love You” was sexy, and when it was cool to attempt the classic “Rock Your Body” beatbox. Yes, we hear the familiar falsetto voice of Timberlake over deep R&B grooves in his come back single “Suit and Tie”,  but it is certainly lacking something. Something, aside from the lack of percussive sounds which punctuated his previous albums, which I cannot quite pinpoint, and I am not convinced Jay-Z adds much to the song other than an additional big name. It is good to know Justin Timberlake is making music again, let us just hope that his upcoming album The 20/20 Exprience will pack more punch.

Overall, a relatively pleasant track, but perhaps it will sound better amidst the sultry temperatures of summer.

54,414,442 hits on YouTube! Really? I don’t hate the track, but it’s certainly too cutsie and Katy Perry for my likings-I would definitely have a complete cringe attack if this came on in a club! 4 weeks at number one and a lot of hype, Carly Rae Jepsen is evidently the lady of the moment…though having watched the video a few times myself, I do have sneaky suspicion a few of those hits may be a result of a certain bare torso hottie seductively backing the h20.
