18/05/17 - new Dougans/Cobain/Appleton/White collab album due

In what's turning out to be an absurdly busy month for news, we have news of a new collaboration between Dougans and Cobain, Robin Appleton of Cranium Pie, and Will White, regular FSOL/Amorphous collaborator and ex-Propellerhead. Info:

artist: Ai (stands for Audio intelligence)

album: Paradigmension

release date: will drop digitally on June 23 via Blurred Recordings

people on this project: Robin Appleton, Will White, Brian Dougans, Garry Cobain

The brainchild of Robin Appleton — founder of underground cult psych/prog band Cranium Pie and Tronsonic, unique tape-sampled virtual synthesizers — Ai (standing for Audio intelligence) is a collective of friends and collaborators, including Will White of Propellerheads, who contributed ideas and new mixes to Paradigmension, a 17-track album of electronic soul. The hard-to-define release was originally conceived as a soundtrack project for TV and film and was built around Appleton's home-made Tronsonic samples.

Ahead of the release, you can download 1 track, the LP cut of "So High - I Can Reach The Sun" here.

17/05/17 - Uncovered: SickOnes / Yage - Violition EP (Yage Remix)

It appears this was posted as a free downloaded last July, but went considerably under the radar (it's currently had 73 plays...). Frome-based hardcore punk band SickOnes had their debut EP 'Torn apart by YAGE', creating 'a unique blend of hardcore punk and experimental electronic music.'

If you ever wanted to hear hardcore screams to the backing of glitched drums, 303 squelches and birdsong, here's your opportunity. Grab it for free from the SickOnes Soundcloud.
